Cafe Umami offers good food in an informal atmosphere. The menu is a bit scattered, but everything we had was very good. The flavors are rich and the quantity is abundant. Depending on where you are seated, you'll be cozy with the neighboring tables, but the patrons are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Definitely a place to try!

The food in this place would be great if the service wasn't so incredibly horrible. What they actually did manage to get to the table, as they forgot half of our orders, but charged us for them anyway, came out ice cold. How do you not have a manager on duty? The bosses leave petulant children to run this place,... More

We are one of those families who only get to eat here once or twice a year...but for whom getting to eat at the Umami Cafe is usually one of the highlights of our Historic Hudson Valley experience. Unfortunately, not so much this year. I don't know if it was the post-Halloween doldrums or if they gave the 'real' chef... More

My husband and I met our friends here for dinner before going to the Blaze. One nice thing is that the restaurant will make sure your meal comes out quickly if you let them know you are in a time crunch to get to the Blaze. The ambiance of the restaurant is nothing special. I was pretty surprised honestly because... More

Umami is a weeknight staple when I just don't feel like cooking. During the summer, we love the tuna tacos. In winter, there's nothing like the Evil Jungle Prince curry: spicy, coconut-creamy, with lovely bits of root vegetable. Tip: Ask for a side of baby bok choi, and use that to sop up the extra sauce. Depending on your appetite,... More

My boyfriend and I went to Umami Cafe over Memorial Day weekend on Sunday night. We had the lobster rolls and although they were tasty, the portion size was quite small. It was served on a bun that was even smaller than a standard hot dog bun. For $17.95 we thought there should have been more lobster. Also, because it... More

Well, we live nearby and needed something different than the norm but also needed a 4 year old to be content. Bingo! A waiter at this place came to a jazz show of mine a week ago and it turns out he works at Umami. I asked him what kind of food they serve and he hesitated for a moment.... More

Umami Cafe is just "Croton Cool"! The young staff could not be more friendly and are focused on making sure you enjoy your time there. Truth be told I was there for a buffet lunch reception after a funeral, but all the food was delicious and professionally prepared. I'm going back again for dinner next time I'm in NY.

Very dependable. Very affordable. Excellent quality food. The menu is very eclectic, there are Asian, American, Japanese and Thai choices. Each is good its its own way. The ribs are outstanding, as good as any BBQ restaurant. We go regularly.
