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

We stopped here on a whim on a stopover in Fredericksburg, and boy am I glad we did. The Fire Island roll was outstanding, and the Crab Rangoon was the best I've ever had. Other highlights included the steamed pork dumplings and a Bento box. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend trying it out.

The sushi is so great! From a simple cucumber avocado roll to a special Bonzai roll... They are all super fresh and delicious. We also edamame, soup, salad and a red snapper mango roll and they were all delicious. The service was also great. Originally an avocado cream cheese roll was brought out, but they quickly apologized and made the... More

Another great meal at Umi. Back to the Bento Box routine. Noticeably more expensive for dinner than at lunch. But still quite a bit of food--more California rolls than in the lunch box. Love the shrimp tempura! Hubby had the sushi and really enjoyed it. Daughter and boyfriend each had fried rice and felt the portion was huge.Food arrived in... More

This evening we experienced the total package. Our son-in-law invited us to an evening out of ordering off the menu. Well, this may be something that not many people are familiar with. He actually learned it from his buddy. The food was beyond fantastic but even more so, was the presentation. The presentation of items on the menu are in... More
