We drove far to celebrate two birthdays at this restaurant. The staff was nice. But the food was expensive and quite ordinary to just poor. We were so disappointed.

The place is always packed and reservations are a MUST. Flavors tempt all your senses and then some. Service is friendly, non rushed and helpful. Spoke with the chef and he was excited to be there that evening but also to be running a marathon the following day. And, he took time to help me with my menu choices as well as nutrition tips for my upcoming half marathon.

yes umami really does describe this place, it means pleasant to the taste.. and everything we have had here is just that. Its one of Chagrin Falls many treasures. We had a lovely sushi with tuna to start, presented so beautiful and it was very cold/fresh and tasty all my main requirements for sushi. My husband had the seared tuna salad which was a nice size meal with lots of lovely perfectly seared tuna. I had the chicken curry dish with the black rice. It was very tasty and a large size lunch serving. A couple of well made cocktails helped cool us down while we waited for our lunch. The place is small but the waiter and staff do a good job of getting the food out in a timely manner and you never have too long to wait. The menu isn't huge either but they offer some nice extra selections and after all its all freshly prepared so the menu size is just right. Stop in and you won't be disappointed.

This place has great food. Their hot and sour soup is delicious, husband LOVES the sushi! The service has always been great, fantastic for working lunches because you are always in and out within an hour. Finally a place in Great Falls that has Boba Tea!! I love everything about Umami, try it you would be sorry you did.
