Service was fast and the food was excellent. Had a wonderful drink too but can't remember the name. A great place. I'd go back for sure.

I think Umi has the best sushi in Seattle. They have a great happy hour that just cannot be beat! Plus great food, great service, and great atmosphere. The only downside is most of Seattle thinks this... so plan ahead.. the wait time can be a bit long!

They had a happy hour we got the tail end of and had 15 mins left to put in an order. Our waitress was cognizant of the time and put in our happy hour right away. The service was exceptionally fast and our sushi rolls were out in no time! It was an ambiance of fine dining with fast service... More

Stop by Umi for the late night happy hour! Umi has a great selection of sake, sake cocktails and all other beer and wine cocktail creations. The happy hour menu consists of several discounted regular menu items from sashimi, sushi and other small plates. This was a great late night dinner option.

Everything about it was excellent from start to finish. If I had to find something that was not perfect, I would say that the menu is too big! Ha, hardly anything to complain about though!

The food was fantastic and we were seated promptly with our reservation but were asked to leave by a certain time, though our waitress did not come to our table for 15 minutes. Once she came and took our order we were rushed and my plate was taken prior to being done with my food. Do not eat here if... More

We felt like something light to eat and since Uni Sake House is a short walking distance to our hotel, we decided to check it out. We didn't book, had to wait for about 20 mins and we got a sushi bar table, able to watch the guys making the sushi. The waitress was helpful and friendly, quite a noisy... More

I have eaten in many cities around the world and eaten a lot of Japanese food. The waitress was abrupt and offered no recommendations when asked. The Omasake sashimi was cut so thick, and poorly cut. We spent about $150 for dinner and 2 drinks (together), and our $6 pizza we had on our walk home far exceeded the food... More

Sake flights (3) were interesting and the food was good (sushi, rice bowls). We had a short (20 min) wait and enjoyed our evening out after a long day at work. Not the quietest place, but lots of 'vibe' for those who appreciate that kind of atmosphere.

Thank hanlievanwyk
