Description: Umi offers a unique twist to the traditional Japanese cuisine in Central Florida. Every menu item is prepared by using meticulous methods starting from the preparation down to the execution. The dishes express refinement and art in the chefs final presentation to you. Locals and world travelers alike are treated to a dining experience to share small plates cooked from the robata grill, kitchen and the sushi bar, or dive into our Signature sushi rolls and Moriawase platters. You'll find Japanese, Korean and European flavors in our food and in the masterly crafted desserts that are a hit amongst locals. Navigate to our online menu and come in to see and taste for yourself! Chef de Cuisine César Cruz and Head Sushi Chef John Park select only the finest and freshest produce, seafood and meats sourced locally and from around the world, insuring that each handmade dish is prepared just for you. Are you a world traveler and love artwork? The restaurant walls are lined with authentic Japanese artwork from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries used for decoration. Japanese screens, woodblock prints, masks, tables/stands, ceramics and wood carvings are just a few of the things you will spot while dining.

Stopped in for lunch. Upscale menu, very fresh fish. We enjoyed several types of sashimi, miso soup, salad, and noodle bowl. All fresh and excellent.

Service was very good. The sushi was good but unremarkable. They did not have any dishes that were off the menu.

Great reviews drew us to Umi like moths to a flame. Good thing we made reservations because they were turning people away as we arrived. We were seated immediately. Interesting menu and unusual to have such a large wine list.

Ordered miso soup, sonomono, a kimchi salad, a lobster and kobie beef entre, and a tuna rice bowl entre. My partner's salad and entre were dropped on the table first. My sunomono came 10 minutes later. Then two bowles of miso soup arrived. Finally my entre arrived. No concept of presentation. No understanding about the sequencing, or pacing of a meal. No opportunity to appreciate each course.

We got home hungery and unsatisfied.

That experience was $100 with a 10% tip.

Walked from the Morse museum for lunch after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. It's at the south end of the busy section of Park street. Worth the walk. Great sashimi. Friendly staff. Thanks Sam!
