The service was superb. Atmosphere is nice and quiet so it was easy to have a conversation. Food was excellent, and I enjoyed all the fresh sashimi. Looking forward to trying Wagyu next time. My only complaint was their wine list is not good at all. I enjoy my meals more if I can pair with a good glass of wine. I tried two glasses - a white and a red. Complete disappointment.

UMU is definitely my favorite japanese restaurant. Went back last March 20 to have Katsudon and as always, t'was superb good minus the rice.

Mary Ann assisted me during my dinner and she's really friendly. She's a gem so keep her. Want to see her once I visit the place again.
