This wonderful restaurant is no longer there. It fell victim to the Sonoma fires. I’m not sure if the owners plan to rebuild. So sad, this was a great place on many levels.

Hi Wynne, I believe you meant to post this for a different restaurant? Umé Japanese Bistro was fortunately unaffected by the fire, and is still in operation. We are sad for anyone who were affected. Kelly
