Like Flibbowitz, Utamaro has been our go-to sushi place since Vizen was vastly altered. But the two are really not comparable.

We live in Hawaii for the last 34 years and Sushi and Sashimi is as good as it gets! Even compared to Japan. Yanagi/Nakayamasan are there as in Nobu. Many choices here in our new home Osprey. This spot rises to the top for sure!

Recently ate here for lunch. The sushi was very good. I especially liked the Utamaro roll. I would definitely recommend Utamaro as a lunch or dinner Sushi meal.

There is sushi, and then there is Utamaro sushi. This place is legit!! This is my go to sushi place in Sarasota period! It is a family run restaurant where the owners cook as well as serve. I almost feel like family when I'm there....More

Under rated in the downtown Sarasota restaurant scene. Great selection, lunch and dinner fairly priced. Teriyaki Chicken is the best anywhere I have ever been. Owners and staff very friendly and nice.

If Japanese food had dim sum, this place is the conceptual ingredient. My cousin took my family here and perhaps they knew to order all the right stuff. Multiple appetizers like the cheek of the yellow tail pictured here, seasoned spinach, and gyoza made this...More

Good place for lunch. Reasonable priced lunches for downtown Sarasota with a good serving amount. I would recommend their Teriyaki chicken.
