quality food, presentation and service.. this is my favorite sushi place in Seattle. they have incredible menu choices, and amazing presentation. they are also starting to do some sake tastings (went to one this past week) that was FANTASTIC!
UMI IS AMAZING.
UMI is amazing. Grat ambiance, AMAZING SUSHI, and really great price. i've been to almost every major sushi city in the world, and Seattle never stops amazing me. Incredible.
If you're going on a Friday night chances are you might have a little of a wait, so call and reserve before hand. In my book , TOP SUSHI.
Also, the HH is great! :P
Great for group dining.. My boyfriend & I celebrated our 21st birthday here with a bunch of our friends and it turned out so well. They were kind enough to call me at most twice to confirm reservations and explain the policies to me. The hostess was so kind to our group of friends. She was quite attentive and the waiters always made sure our glasses were full. The food was great and it was served quickly. I hardly found anyone waiting for their meals. I would definitely return here for large group dinners or just to come have a drink with the girls during happy hour.
It's good, but Seattle has a (much) better spot down the road for less $$$.
I went to Umi having gone to everything from Nishino to the trendy and (in my food-first opinion) overrated Blue C Sushi... it was just an entirely different world from Nishino, and it stood out by a million stars against Blue C in every regard except noise, which both have a serious excess of...
That said, the portions were big on things that should've been small -- in other words, why no single pieces for the things you can't beginnnn to eat much of? (like monkfish liver, which let me tell you, it takes a few people to handle a serving of, since it's just too heavy/ rich /thick/ someotheretherealword to eat as a main food... on the other hand, the rolls were good... but overpriced. Some sushi was really good... others (like sea urchin) were disappointing. Edamame also disappointed... and that is something to really have perfect when your specialty is sushi!
This sounds "harsh" but it's only getting 3 (not 4) stars because it costs way more for what you get than its competitor down the road... Ototo... which has serious Mary Poppins syndrome going on--practically perfect in every way. Frankly, I won't return to Umi when Ototo is right down the road and is flat out amazing if not entirely sublime.
Great and Personable Service. My first experience at Umi Sake house was amazing. Of course the sushi and sake were delicious, but the wonderful service is a reason to come back. There are a lot of good sushi restaurants in Seattle, but our server was so nice and personable, she made the difference for us to want to return. Emily was able to answer all of our questions about sushi and sake since the menu is large and overwhelming. It was a pleasure to be served by her.
The best of the best. The best sushi place in town by far! Very cozy interior , good crowd, nice staff, outstanding food!!!
High quality, good service, fun and young urban crowd.
Excellent sushi, unique presentation.
A little loud, but great for a group of friends who want to be out on the town.
We'll definitely go back.
Amazing sushi !!!!.
I visited Umi Sake house few weeks ago and since then I have been wanting to visit it ever night. The sushi here is the best in Seattle, or probably the best in US. Crunchy lizard, Flaming Tuna and the Lobster Tempura is to die for. They also have great selection of sake cocktails along with traditional cocktails.
Its a big place and the ambience is amazing.....definitely definitely recommended !!!!
Best sushi I've ever had!. My first real experience with sushi was at Umi Sake House and has since never been surpassed. The fish was very fresh and the rolls were amazing. I recommend the California Crunch. This place is very busy so I recommend reservations. It's worth the wait though because the food is incredible!
Not too bad. I have only been to Umi once, that was enough for me. The food wasn't too bad but for what you get it is pretty over priced. The service was not that great but the ambiance is wonderful. It has such a chic modern feel. The music was entirely too loud though. I don't mind loud music, just not while I eat or am trying to have a conversation with the person in front of me. Overall though I would say it is better then some of the other sushi places in seattle, it just would not be my first pick.
