If you have no problem removing the service portion of a meal out, the you're in luck. I thought we might be in trouble when the hostess set the tone. She grabs menus for the two of us and says "follow me", Got it I...thought. Then she proceeds to discretely drop menus on a table as she keeps walking without even breaking a stride. We weren't sure if we should keep "following" her or sit at the table where the menus were dropped. After deciding what we wanted, we had to wait...and wait... Eventually we were addressed by the only server there (apparently). I just chalked it up to, maybe she was in the back doing dishes too, who knows. It only;y accommodated 26 people, so it wasn't like it was TOO busy. Anyway, we eventually got our food and then waited a while for the check.More

Saylem was our waitress. She obviously thinks very highly of herself. My husband and father-in-law are handsome men and women often look at them, even when I am around, but this waitress was ridiculous! She had ugly tattoos all over her arms and wore tons...of make-up. My husband said some of her tattoos were from being in prison-he's an attorney. She flirted with my husband all night, to the point that he was uncomfortable. I just want to say to Saylem-you are so trashy, no classy man will be attracted to you. I left NO tip. Next time make sure when you flirt with another woman's man, you make sure she isn't the one you are depending on for a tip! You are gross!More

These people were Jerks. We had a reservation for 5 people for my sons 18th birthday. It was our family, my my wife, my two boys and my daughter. My son had been looking forward to this for several months as he is a big...fan of Japanese food. When they called a few hours before our reservation to confirm, we told them our youngest son was sick and wont be able to come. They said they have to cancel the reservation because we now only have 4 people. What a bunch jerks! Who treats people like that! Especially since it wasn’t our fault our youngest son got sick. We were being considerate so no one else would get sick. Do they expect us to bring our sick son to keep the reservation !?!? I called back and asked to talked to the manager and she was going to do the same thing and basically said we could come in at the reservation time but then if we didn’t have our youngest son we would have to wait for an open table! Then I had to get mad at them for them to even try to fix the situation. At the end if the discussion I couldn’t even tell if we still had a reservation or not as they would not commit to anything. Who does that! I dont care how good your food is - be kind and understanding to people or they aren’t going to come. Shame on you Umami!More

Excellent fish, good service, a little pricey until you realize how much you get and how good it is! Umami is now our go-to sushi place in Melbourne, FL. You can ask for certain specialties that are not on the menu like the flaming scallop...dish mentioned below.More

I've tried Sushi from Titusville,fl. to Vero Beach fl., and all points from beachside to 95, and the Sushi at Uamami's is at the top of the list. The rice is light and fluffy, not pasty and chewy. The seafood & veggies are fresh and...flavorful, the Chefs and wait staff are social and professional.More

We love this place. The sushi is always fresh and delicious. It’s also creative in a way that makes it special compared to the normal sushi restaurant. Our favorites have been the afternoon delight and bobs fett. The restaurant is kinda small but the atmosphere...is classic. We’ve always gone here during slow times so getting a table has never been a problem for us.More

Food and service has declined. Owner/chef rarely present. Portions and quality not worth what is being charged. I use to refer anyone looking for good, California style sushi. No more. The last 4 times we've been has been progressively worse and more expensive. Too bad.

Best sushi I've had, yet! The place is small, and it fills up quickly. If you have a party of 5 or more, I'd make a reservation. They have plenty of tables for 2. We got right in. The service was fantastic. The sushi was...great! We really enjoyed ourselves.More

We ordered the Hamachi Kama (yellowtail collar) and it was cooked sous vide style and when it came out it wasn't hot so they took it back and I believe they put it under the salamander which roasted the top and warmed it up nicely....The problem is because it was not scaled and was cooked sous vide, the skin was soft and kept coming off on the fish bites and I kept having to spit out fish scales. Typically Hamachi Kama is grilled with the skin getting crunchy and burned so the flesh comes right of the skin with no scales getting mixed in with your bites. Other than that the Salmon Carpaccio and other items were delicious.More

Went there for lunch with my wife. The food was excellent as was the service. Our server was not only efficient but she had a great personality and was fun.
