Umami is a really expensive Japanese place, so try to go here for happy hour when they have discounted rolle, food, and beverages. Their kobe sliders are the best sliders I have ever eaten. I even have friends who claim it is the best

Celebrated my bday there with a group of girl friends. we went for the happy hour (5:30-7) and had excellent service & delicious melt-in-your-mouth sushi. the 1/2 price bottle of wines is a great deal! i will keep coming back.

I recently went to Umami on a busy thursday night. Was very impressed with the reservation system. I placed my reservation online they confirmed with an email and called me the day of the event. Umami is set right off Union Street in the heart of the marina. The hostess knew exactly who I was and quickly took my date and I to our table. The service was prompt; the food was terrific. I asked the server to surprise me with two rolls and was amazed with the selections. To sum Umami up it is a wonderful place for a date and serves great sushi.

I was introduced to Umami's by a client. Wonderful restaurant, great atmosphere, upscale environment. The food listing was extensive enough to warrant plenty of leftovers. Highly recommend.

I truly enjoyed every aspect of Umami. I was a bit skeptical about going to the marina but you know what this place took that skeptasism away. Food, Service, Ambiance all 5 stars in my book.

When you go try the faded crane cocktail....WOW it was so good.

Shortly after we ate at Umami, I started feeling tired and a little nauseated. 40 mins later, I had my head sticking out of the car door. I threw up every 20 mins from 10 pm until 4 am. My stomach pains also kept me up until 6 am. I won't go into what other symptoms I had. Anyways, it was hell. What did I order? Sprite, Yamato Roll, Edamame, Spider Roll, Spicy Ahi Roll, and Unagi and Cucumber Roll. Everything tasted good, except the Edamame. It was super chilled and tasted too undercooked. I did not eat everything, just in case you were wondering. I ate a few bites of all the sushi rolls and about 30 edamame. The atmosphere was very trendy, dark, and loud from lots of people talking. The service was decent, but our waitress, Mariko (printed name on receipt), poured water into my Sprite glass, and also rang my Sprite up as Coke, which was what my co-worker had. Our waitress boxed up our leftovers but did not put any condiments in the bags. I asked for wasabi, ginger, soy sauce, and chopsticks three different times before she finally gave me everything. All the leftovers went to waste because I didn't want to take the chance of getting sick again. It took me two whole days to feel better. And now, three days later, I am finally almost back to my normal health. Would I eat at Umami again? I am scared to go back. But I guess, you can get sick from eating at lots of places, not only at this restaurant.

I took friends from out of town a few weeks ago. On a Friday night, they sat 16 of us at 9:30 (our reservation time). Fifteen minutes after we sat down, our waitress came by to tell us that the kitchen was closing and so we needed to do all of our ordering. We orderded a lot more sushi, but then she came back 10 minute later to tell us that they'd run out of RICE! Our only option was to order $20+ dinner entrees (or more apps that we'd already done). They shouldn't sit large parties at that hour if they're not willing to feed them, or they should at least warn you when you sit to start ordering. The little sushi that we ate was fine, but most of us left hungry. It was a very disappointing experience.

The best boat lunch there is: you get 2 dished, salad, soup, rice, sushi...and all for $8.25. The sushi itself is the best I have had and they have a great upstairs setting for dinner.

I had lunch at Yashida Ya this afternoon. It cost $27 for two people. We had 13 pieces of sushi, teriyaki chicken, two bowls of miso soup, one bowl of rice, green tea, and iced tea. It was around 12:30pm. The staff was very attentive! In my opinion, the sushi was very well crafted. It was also delicious and fresh tasting.
And yes, they are Japanese.

In my experience, this restaurant wasn't half bad. I went during the evening and the atmosphere was quite nice. Perfect for a romantic dinner since the lights were dimmed low. The food was pretty tasty, nothing too bland... had a couple of rolls and tried the chicken donburi. Also got a complimentary appetizer while waiting for food. The sushi and nigiri pieces seems limited since I have tried other japanese restaurants that have more pieces. Service was quick. True, the prices are pricey, just so if you're willing to pay some extra cash. Overall, I wouldn't mind going back.

Nice little restaurant that does nothing exceptional. I enjoyed my sushi and some of the meat dishes, but it was like many other places I have been to. It was a little expensive for the serving sizes. I may give it another shot.
