It is the only place to eat sushi between D.C. and Richmond nobody comes close. We always start with the tuna spoons (not on the menu) which are amazing and then split a few sushi rolls which are reasonably priced. Five starts all the way staff is super friendly and super accommodating to our family with two young children.

I was out with a friend and we both wanted sushi for dinner. We had both been to Miso across the street, but not Umi. We almost didn't stay because the parking lot was jam packed. We kept circling around and eventually parked at a building that sits behind Umi since there were no signs saying we couldn't park there.... More

This was the first time we had gone to this restaurant. We've passed it a few times but this time we decided to stop. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere was really nice it was very calm not to loud. The decor was lovely looked very new. Most importantly the food tasted awesome. The portions were small but that was... More

The food at Umi is every bit as delicious as it is pretty to look at! In addition, the staff is friendly and the service is great, so this is definitely one of the best spots for sushi in Fredericksburg! And don't forget to order the Tuna Spoons!! They're not on the menu but this secret gem is one worth... More

To find a great place to eat, look in the parking lot. As locals, we have been here several times. This evening we made the mistake of arriving at 6:15 P.M. When going for sushi you can expect to wait maybe a little longer then most places because the preparation is an art. When they are busy that wait will... More

Had a nice visit today and enjoyed two of my staple items-Torch Tail and Godzilla Roll. Today I added the Flying Fish Roe Sashimi which was served in cucumber and was good as well. The food here is always tasty just a little slow if you're on a lunch break.

Our son chose to celebrate his birthday here. He loves sushi, which Umi is known for doing well. Our food was good and was served quickly. Trying to put my finger on why this place no longer impresses me. The wait staff are very perfunctory and rarely smile. Plus, it all feels a bit worn down--from the foggy glassware to... More

We stopped here on a whim on a stopover in Fredericksburg, and boy am I glad we did. The Fire Island roll was outstanding, and the Crab Rangoon was the best I've ever had. Other highlights included the steamed pork dumplings and a Bento box. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend trying it out.
