While visiting the Florence area for only the second time, we decided to check out this local sushi and Japanese restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with how good/fresh the sushi was and can't wait to go back to try the Hibachi! The service was as good as it gets as well!

The food was really fresh and a lot of it. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. We needed to eat quickly to get to a movie and she was very attentive in getting our food and check. The sushi was also fresh and good.

This is a great place to go for birthdays! The Hibachi grill is always fun, entertaining, and delicious. It can be a little expensive, though, for the Hibachi grill.

We enjoy going to Umi on special occasions. We took our employees for our holiday party and reserved one of the private rooms. The food is great & service is quick.

The owners took what was a Quincy's Steak (Buffet) restaurant and totally renovated it making it a very attractive and large Japaneese Restaurant with both set down and Hibachi style dining.
