"This was my second time at Umi. We were there on a Saturday shortly after opening at 4:30. The service was unbelievably slow; there seemed to be 2 servers for about 6 tables by the time we left (2-3 at the time we arrived.) Both of our servers came by infrequently; I had to get up to seek them out on more than 1 occasion. Our experience was lengthened by at least 30 minutes due to this. Our entrees did not take long, but the dessert (ice cream and mochi ice cream) took over 10 minutes. Service was very nice and friendly; just extremely slow and infrequent. The food is good, though the prices are a little high for the area. We shared 1 roll, 5 entrees, and 1 dessert and somehow that came out to $145, almost 30 per person. Seems high for what we had."

"I went to Umi twice. The first time my friend suggested it to me, and we had rolls. The second time I brought a different friend with me and we had ramen noodles with pork belly, among other food. It was so amazing, it left me craving it for two days straight. I look forward to coming back tot Umi. It's one of those places you can confidently recommend to your friends."

"Delicious, beautifully plated food and very friendly wait staff. Easy to get a table, it was slow on Saturday night at 6:30, which made for a very pleasant dining experience. A bit pricey, is my only complaint."

"My girlfriend and I went here just for ramen. We got the warm moist towel treatment upon being seated and the waitress asked if we'd like anything to drink - we just had water. We ordered the tonkotsu ramen (2x) and an edamame appetizer. The app came quickly, and was as expected. The tonkotsu ramens came quickly after and were delicious. There were no mushrooms in this one, but it had bamboo and pickled ginger, which added a nice flavouring to the overall really good ramen. The noodles were a little more al dente than I like in ramen, but the portions were favourably sized and we were full. No dessert option - out goal was a good ramen soup and we had it. The place was a bit on the empty side, around 8:30pm on a Saturday night - but the interior is very nice, modern, and I would hope more people would go there because the service and location were great. They also have a front (shared) parking lot, which is great if you don't like paying the city for parking. I'd go again."
