Reviews for UMAMI Japanese Bistro

This is an absolute disaster, my meal was an atrocity. My girlfriend and I, were planning on having a nice meal, but the waitress ensured that it would be impossible to do so. It would probably been better if I had been my own waiter, and chef. At the end of my meal immediately after signing the check I was asked to leave because my table was reserved. I have never in my life been treated as poorly as the staff at umami treated me. The only thing I can say positively is that full review

Absolutely amazing sushi bar, and impeccable service from Chef Jimmy, who masterfully prepared some of the best oysters, smoked salmon, mackeral sushi, umi, and marrow tartare I have ever tasted. Those flavors danced on the tongue!! A perfect experience.

How does this place have such great reviews? Is Baton Rouge just that starved for sushi?? The rolls are mediocre at best, with very little creativity behind them. The menu is small, offering typical tolls that you would find anywhere with only two true specialties, the sexiest man/woman alive rolls. Sushi was warm when recieved at the table, but still was edible. Again, mediocre. (I also happened to notice that one of the gentlemen plating sushi behind the bar was doing so full review
