Reviews for UMAMI Japanese Bistro

Modern, warm, minimalist vibes. Elevated Japanese cuisine. Start with a cup of miso...most flavorful broth! Follow with Death Valley Roll...the flavor and texture combo was one to be slowly savored. We finished with one of their limited menu offerings...bone marrow topped with bits of filet and red pickled onions. It was perfect! It beat Gordon Ramsey's Steakhouse version in Las Vegas!

The fish is always fresh! The matcha crepe cake is divine! Honestly I haven't tried anything that I didn't like! The ambiance is light & bright but the staff makes you feel welcome & warm & cozy enough to want to just hang out for a while. And I love that at least one or both of the owners are always there. It's great for date night or hanging out with friends. This is my little go-to spot for almost any occasion.

I went here last week, and it's good, but I don't think it's worth the price. Most sushi places I go to have 8 pieces in a regular priced special roll, not 6. I went during happy hour so I got some good deals, but I also got a regular priced sushi roll. They tasted pretty decent but I wasn't like WOW! The cucumber and crabstick salad was good and refreshing!
