Our son chose to celebrate his birthday here. He loves sushi, which Umi is known for doing well. Our food was good and was served quickly. Trying to put my finger on why this place no longer impresses me. The wait staff are very perfunctory and rarely smile. Plus, it all feels a bit worn down--from the foggy glassware to... More

We stopped here on a whim on a stopover in Fredericksburg, and boy am I glad we did. The Fire Island roll was outstanding, and the Crab Rangoon was the best I've ever had. Other highlights included the steamed pork dumplings and a Bento box. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend trying it out.

The sushi is so great! From a simple cucumber avocado roll to a special Bonzai roll... They are all super fresh and delicious. We also edamame, soup, salad and a red snapper mango roll and they were all delicious. The service was also great. Originally an avocado cream cheese roll was brought out, but they quickly apologized and made the... More

Another great meal at Umi. Back to the Bento Box routine. Noticeably more expensive for dinner than at lunch. But still quite a bit of food--more California rolls than in the lunch box. Love the shrimp tempura! Hubby had the sushi and really enjoyed it. Daughter and boyfriend each had fried rice and felt the portion was huge.Food arrived in... More

This evening we experienced the total package. Our son-in-law invited us to an evening out of ordering off the menu. Well, this may be something that not many people are familiar with. He actually learned it from his buddy. The food was beyond fantastic but even more so, was the presentation. The presentation of items on the menu are in... More

Wait was super long because we had a party of 6 and there is not an abundance of seating. Food was great, as usual. Waitress got one order wrong, but brought 2 complimentary desserts to make up for the wait. The food looks as good as it tastes.

Wanted to have sushi for lunch on our way home and found this place off I-95 in Fredericksburg. About an 8-10 minute drive to the restaurant from I-95. The appearance of the restaurant from the outside is not the nicest and I was a bit hesitant about going in. Once we were inside it was actually nicer than the outside.... More

Why is this not higher?! I have to chip in because the sushi, service, and rice is out of this world. I've been coming here since the beginning.
