Opened in 2014 to a 4.5 Star review from the Baltimore Sun, Azumi is located on Baltimore's Inner Harbor in the elegant Four Seasons Hotel. With picturesque panoramic waterfront views, Azumi offers authentic Japanese cuisine with a strong focus on sushi matched with an amazing "hot kitchen." Azumi's Sake and Japanese Whiskey program is one of the largest in the region. Named the city's best Japanese restaurant by Baltimore Magazine, Azumi is also one of the hottest spots for nightlife in the city featuring a live DJ on weekends. Enjoy outdoor dining on our patio which overlooks the Inner Harbor.

Azumi’s highly-skilled teppanyaki / hibachi chefs are on display in our new FLAME ROOM as they cook the highest-quality meats, seafood, vegetables & rice on a solid-surface iron griddle right before your eyes in this intimate & interactive dining experience.

Visited Azumi’s this past weekend for a spontaneous date.
As always, the food was great! I ordered a mixture of things this time.

For starters I had the Miso Soup that was bursting with flavor. The Crunchy Tuna Toro was new for me. The sushi was fresh. You could taste the blends of mixed greens and vinaigrette. It was very tasty. The Vegetable Fried Rice.was also a new choice. It was flavorful with a mixture of diced carrots, mushrooms and scallions. It was delicious

Azumi’s is a perfect spot near the water so the ambience is always set. I love this restaurant! Never disappointed.

Unfortunately, there are no pictures.😕

What a mix this place is. Great ambience. Very good food. But two times in a row the service was so poor. Long stretches without ever seeing the server. Appetizers coming before the drinks. Then entrees taking forever. It’s too bad because we love the food and the ambience. But poor service combined with high prices is never a good combo.

Azumi was a treat... a nice change from the standard fish and chips or crab across the Inner Harbor. The food and presentation was original and delicious. The only minor criticism would have been the slow service at the very end. We would definitely return if we find ourselves back in the area.

We celebrated my son's graduation yesterday at Azumi. The location, atmosphere, food and service were all incredible! The sushi was very fresh and we enjoyed everything we ordered, but some standouts were the crispy rice tuna, crispy fried calamari (probably my favorite), wagyu fried rice, and the vanilla panna cotta for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant!!

I had taken my 3 teenage daughters to the Preakness and we celebrated after at Azumi. We all loved the ambience and vibrancy of the crowd. Jessica was our server and she was very attentive. We loved the unique flavor of the various food we ordered and the girls and I had an extremely memorable time and likely will return.

The food was expensive and ordinary. The sashimi was average and the sushi rolls were no better than your local takeout. At $22 they were just ridiculously small and not special. I had eaten there several times before and had wonderful food at lunch and dinner ordering their large platters. I will not be going back.

Fabulous patio seating, great music , great food and outstanding service. Eric was an exceptional server, friendly, knowledgeable and experienced, food was served at just the right time,...I absolutely hate it when my food arrives before I have had the chance to finish what I am currently working on.

I visited Azumi for a birthday date on a Friday and had a great time. I had such a good time that I wanted to return with friends the following day. I scheduled a late reservation because we planned to only have cocktails. We ran a little late and were told that they could not let us in.

The dining room was near empty, the bar area has people in it but it wasn’t packed. But because of COVID, I understand why she said it was full.

While I do feel like they could have sat us in the dining room and allowed us to have cocktails, I know how to play by the rules, but the rules have to be consistent. My friend went 10 minutes later and was seated.

My friends and I had already left and went to Maximon and had a great time. My issue with Azumi is that the host and the manager were incredibly rude and dismissive. They lacked the high quality customer service that should come with an upscale dining environment. The hostess seemed on edge and the manager was just not a pleasant person and tried to avoid interacting with us directly. It’s safe to say, this is probably a case by case situation. But I was not pleased with my experience this night.
