I lived in Japan for several years and was skeptical to try Umi's but was so glad I did. The food is authentic Japanese and even the decor makes you feel as if you are in Japan. As soon as I walked in the smells brought back memories of Japan.

There are many great restaurants in Fredercksburg and Umi heads are list. This place is a little small but it has a nice atmosphere, the people who work here are super friendly and the chefs' what can I say. Next time you go, just tell the waitress you want the chefs special. Rather then pick from the menu, let them... More

This is THE place to go if you're looking for the freshest and best sushi in the area. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. It's a real treat sitting at the sushi counter as the masters create their plates of art! Do not miss the Sesame Ahi Tuna and Mango salad....a personal favorite!! Fabulous, friendly staff, and...

It is the only place to eat sushi between D.C. and Richmond nobody comes close. We always start with the tuna spoons (not on the menu) which are amazing and then split a few sushi rolls which are reasonably priced. Five starts all the way staff is super friendly and super accommodating to our family with two young children.

I was out with a friend and we both wanted sushi for dinner. We had both been to Miso across the street, but not Umi. We almost didn't stay because the parking lot was jam packed. We kept circling around and eventually parked at a building that sits behind Umi since there were no signs saying we couldn't park there.... More

This was the first time we had gone to this restaurant. We've passed it a few times but this time we decided to stop. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere was really nice it was very calm not to loud. The decor was lovely looked very new. Most importantly the food tasted awesome. The portions were small but that was... More

The food at Umi is every bit as delicious as it is pretty to look at! In addition, the staff is friendly and the service is great, so this is definitely one of the best spots for sushi in Fredericksburg! And don't forget to order the Tuna Spoons!! They're not on the menu but this secret gem is one worth... More

To find a great place to eat, look in the parking lot. As locals, we have been here several times. This evening we made the mistake of arriving at 6:15 P.M. When going for sushi you can expect to wait maybe a little longer then most places because the preparation is an art. When they are busy that wait will... More

Had a nice visit today and enjoyed two of my staple items-Torch Tail and Godzilla Roll. Today I added the Flying Fish Roe Sashimi which was served in cucumber and was good as well. The food here is always tasty just a little slow if you're on a lunch break.

Our son chose to celebrate his birthday here. He loves sushi, which Umi is known for doing well. Our food was good and was served quickly. Trying to put my finger on why this place no longer impresses me. The wait staff are very perfunctory and rarely smile. Plus, it all feels a bit worn down--from the foggy glassware to... More
