The service was ok the server would not listen to what was being ordered and messed up the orders for the cook pretty bad, but the food was very good and there was plenty of food on your plate.

after hearing so many friends talk about Umis and how good the food was, we decided to try it. we were there over lunch. The place seemed cleaned and well decorated. The wait staff was very friendly. The food didnt seem to have much flavor, and the chicken had a rubbery texture.

Take an hour out of your day and head to Umi for a hibachi lunch. Sushi was above average too. Don't bother with the flavorless mushroom soup. Chef was experienced and entertaining with the standard repitiore that you'd expect. I only rate Umi at 4 because I have had better hibachi for the same (lunch) prices. In Columbus, however, this...

Definitely want to have a big enough group of your family and friends to sit and enjoy the meal at the grill! We went as a big family group. If you don't have enough in your party to fill up the seats at the grill they will place several other parties with you and this can't be quite awkward to... More

I come here a lot and each time the restaurant was clean and the food delicious. The staff is very nice, especially the manager, and the cooks are very entertaining.

We've done Hibachi several times and got sushi everytime. Everything is always delicious! I've never had any issues with service or food. I'd eat here more if it wasn't so pricey.

I have eaten here twice and I get the same great service. I wish I knew the chef's name b/c we always sit in his area. He is very energetic and loves his job. Great experience for all. Food is great also.

Really fun place to go for hibachi. The chefs are always nice. All of the food from sushi to hibachi is very good. Only bad thing I can say is that I got lobster one time, and there were little piece of shell broken in the lobster. So, I wouldn't recommend getting lobster here, but everything else is great!!!

We are not impressed by some of the wait staff, however Umi has been a great go-to for the occasional Saturday lunch food splurge. We order medium-rare steak hibachi and have not been disappointed in food quality and entertainment at Umi since we moved to Columbus in 2015. If you are looking to visit Umi for the first time, do... More
