My husband and I dined here at Umi Sushi last night. When it comes to sushi, I'm rather traditional and stick with the nigiri. The uni was amazingly fresh and creamy. The fresh water eel was tender, and the smelt roe was salty and crunchy. The poke appetizer I had was flavorful and the use of wakame seaweed as a substitute for the traditional Hawaiian seaweed added a nice touch to the dish. My husband enjoyed his Korean BBQ short ribs (kalbi) and his shrimp tempura sushi roll. We ended the evening with some green tea ice cream for my husband, and red bean mochi for myself. Yum. The staff at Umi were friendly and great with suggestions and sharing their favorites. The fact that it's just a few minutes from our favorite Shelter Island hotel (Bay Club), is a bonus.

I was amazed at the number of different rolls they had, although, like always, I went mainly for nigiri. But it was nice to try a new roll too. The food was great, not overpriced, and the service was wonderful. The atmosphere was more like a Red Lobster than a Japanese restaurant, but I will definitely go back!

Pros: Lots of Variety

Cons: Atmosphere was lacking

When we are in San Diego we love visiting Umi Sushi... although we are vegetarian, they easily accommodate us with noodle dishes and tofu, and California rolls and inari! The miso soup is always hot and good! Plenty of edamame to go around.

We love sushi and bring our "non-sushi" friends here to introduce them gently. Umi has unusual baked rolls that are perfect for people afraid to try raw, and the raw fish is so fresh that they step up and try some. Lo and behold - another sushi fan! The food is always beautifully prepared and presented. The chefs are friendly at the sushi bar and the wait staff is always pleasant and helpful. Parking is tight sometimes, but there is a parking lot close by and this is a beautiful area for a walk!

good place and good atmosphere. many beautiful people in this area because it is very close to the beach.

prices are not very acceptable to students. sushi and rolls are good to eat but not delicious.

only one bad thing: parking. it is very hard to spot a parking in the weekend and at night. not recommanded.

We found this restaurant through friend as we just moved to San Diego area. Their sushi, variety of rolls, sashimi are excellent. Also, they have hot dishes which we have tried most of dishes are the best for who can't handle the raw fish. With good service and family friendly atmosphere, I recommend this restaurant for whom loves Japanese foods. My kids love their foods and whenever we go out, they ask for umi restaurant. It's worth of trying.

Beautiful Sushi, Excellant Service, and Very Clean. Lobster Roll is awesome. Variety Japanes Sake and Beer make more pleasure dinning experience. There Tatami room (Japanese style private party room) is awesome!
