We were looking for a sushi place close to our hotel if possible. We read reviews for Umi and decided to give it a try. The restaurant is very cozy and welcoming. It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was almost 100% full. The sushi menu was quite large so it look us a while to figure out what... More

If you like sake or want to try it the selection is great and ask for suggestion o sampling several if you are not sure what you like or want to try something... More

The food was absolutely magnificent and the service was outstanding, we didn't have a booking and had a drink at the bar whilst a table became vacant for us, so just a short 15-20minute wait. Fresh modern sushi styles, cook, raw or deep fried what ever you like as the menu has a large variety of choices to select from.... More

Great sushi and fantastic service. A little bit on the noisy side because it is a very popular restaurant and reservations highly recommended. We had a variety of sushi and tried the Casino Royale roll which was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family and would return again.

We didn't have reservations but only waited a few minutes. The service was excellent, the food was awesome and we hope to go back the next time we... More

What a delight to sit at the sushi bar and be served by Shiro himself! The Omakase was perfect. Shiro gave us tuna 4 ways, salmon 3 ways and then hamachi 3 ways. We liked trying the same type of fish from different places and different preparations. Shiro told us to let him know when we were 80% full but... More

Consistently great sashimi here, with a terrific sake menu. Great location in down/Belltown, where there are a lot of annoying places with less good food. Only criticism: Rolls are too high priced.

This place serves up some great sushi that tastes fresh. It's a wonderful place for happy hour. This place seems popular for dinner.... we usually go for happy hour. It's has a pleasant atmosphere and wait staff is attentive. Not a place for you if you want cheap sushi.

The restaurant has a modern vibe with wooden, bamboo-like decor. The service from everyone is friendly and knowledgable. The food is tasty as was the sake and minty margarita we drank. We only wish they didn't play rap music when we would've enjoyed relaxing music. The good thing is that it didn't overpower us. Still...please consider more relaxing, tranquil music,... More
