A sushi expert may lambast Umi's, but I won't. Not being a huge fan of raw anything, I'll say that this place made sushi accessible to me and other members of my family. The atmosphere is always enjoyable, the service prompt, and the food tasty. I will say that in recent months, the food quality has gone down a bit.... More

My husband and I go to Umi's pretty regularly and over 5 years we have had maybe 2 bad experiences, both of which occurred when it was packed (also I'm pretty sure that waitress is gone). The hibachi and the shrimp are both delicious and the waiters and waitresses are all very friendly.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Very entertaining as the hibachi chefs put on a great show of food preparation and presentation.

Ordered to go. Habachi, sushi and soup. Neither horrible or fantastic. Wouldn't go back. High reviews were deceiving.

Great service, great food. My friend and I ate at the Hibachi grill. The calamari, filet mignon, salmon, and shrimp fried rice were superb. It was enjoyable visiting with others around the grill. And we have returned since.

Dropped in for a late lunch. Had 2 rolls, spider and ??. They were OK but nothing to get excited about. I was more concerned with my view of the kitchen. The floor mat at the kitchen entry was too big for area and employees had to step over. I was sure someone was going to trip on it.

Thank Kimmie V
