Never tried sushi or sashimi before, but this restaurant made me love them. We tried a variety of food, and everything really felt fresh. If this wasn't my first restaurant at which I would've tried sushi, I wouldn't have loved it so much. 3 weeks after I ate here, and I can still feel the freshness of the sushi and... More

This was some of the best sushi I've ever had. Huge menu with unique rolls. Was very crowded, so I'd recommend a reservation.

I just love Umi. I've never been disappointed with the sushi here. The atmosphere is great and the service on point. This is a great place to come for special occasions. Lots of selections of sushi and sake. Highly recommend if you're looking for a delicious sushi spot :)

I had the following daily specials: Chirashi, 3 kinds of salmon sushi. The 3 kinds of salmon were good, but forgettable since I wasn't reminded which were which. Chirashi was excellent. The variety was good and the fish tasted amazing. I also had 3 kinds of sake: Jokigen junmai ginjo Wakatake oniforoshi junmai ginjo Konteki daiginjo. All 3 were very... More

I visited Umi back in March with my sister-in-law and son. We were craving sushi and heard excellent things about Umi, so we went. All I can say is AMAZING!! Unbelievable sashimi & rolls. Restaurant was clean and service was friendly. The next time I'm in Seattle, I'm definitely making a stop at Umi.

Was in Seattle for business and was eating out solo. Found Umi Sake on tripadvisor and a colleague had recommended it. The place is surprisingly large inside and thankfully I got seated immediately at the sushi bar. It did take awhile to get service but once I ordered, I got my sake martini and chirashi relatively quickly. Great presentation and... More

The BEST restaurant we ate at the entire time we were in Seattle! The sushi was incredible. Fresh and inventive combinations made this a memorable dinner. Never having had sake before we let our server choose a flight for us and she was very accommodating when we didn't like one. We moved onto clam miso soup that was hearty &... More
