The first order took 45 minutes to come out, a bit too long. The music was also very loud and it was hard to hear what others were saying. Hand rolls had an extra unidentified leaf inside that changed the taste.

We requested an outdoor reservation (online and I called in advance) but they sat us inside instead. I also don’t feel they did a great job of social distancing, allowing a large group of women to sit at the bar right behind us during our dinner. But the food was delicious, as always. I think we’ll stick to take out for the time being.

Everything was just "ok". I wasn't impressed with the food but it wasn't bad. I have no urge to return to Yumi Sushi but if someone wanted to go, I could definitely find something on the menu. The ambiance inside was nice although due to COVID, we dined outside.

Can never go wrong at Yume. Chef Kannasute is amazing at what he does. The sushi is melt-in-your-mouth, to-die-for deliciousness. Sat outside with the heaters since it was a bit cooler. COVID protocols are always on-point. Staff is great. Shout out to CiCi as well!! This is perfect for any occasion... a casual drop by, date night, or a special occasion!

We come here often and love Yume sushi!! The food as always was incredible but the service was very slow and the music was so loud we couldn't hold a conversation. I do not know if they were short-staffed that evening or what. I know our waiter did the best he could but it took 45 minutes to get drinks and the food over an hour and 20 minutes!

I do highly recommend the food here but something needs to be done about the timing of the service and the noise level.

Let's start by acknowledging that the food was excellent. The service not so much. I ordered the Ceviche appetizer (my guest had all of her food come)... I still waited. When the server finally arrived he asked how was everything -- I said, I had not received my Ceviche... he said, sorry we are out, do you want something else? Ordered some other appetizer, and they ran out of the "bun" that comes with it. Took forever to get the check. It was not that busy --- many open tables inside and out. On my reservation I noted it was a special occasion --- no recognition of that in any way. Very disappointed.

Overall - I would eat here again but I would go for the more basic items on the menu.
The food tastes fine but the portions are smaller and they were advertising menu items that have diamond salt, truffles and foie gras with no pricing listed. When I asked how much those items were the server was unsure. Seems a bit “designer” which isn’t for me.
They have plenty of options for alcohol. Learn from my mistake and go for a cheaper bottle of sake. They asked me to try a sample of a $89 bottle...I obliged and felt compelled to go for it for the experience and come to find out it was a $30 bottle retail. I felt a little duped even before my main course made it to the table.
The interior design of the restaurant is cool and the music is fairly low which was nice.
In summation - I’d go back for some simple sushi items on the menu, chill with the indoor ambience or the out door seating.

Was able to make a reservation on OpenTable for dinner, and upon arriving there, the restaurant was not even open. Hours of operation for the restaurant need to be updated in order to ensure that this does not happen again. I'm sure I am not the only person that this has happened to.

The sushi was good - as expected based on one of our friends who I believe knows the owners (this is our first time at the restaurant). What we did not like was that it took one hour to get our food, meanwhile there was a large table that was being served very well (granted there were more people but we got there before them). There is really no reason why it took one hour - I guess we need to be friends with the owners....Regardless, the food was good. We may consider going back - but only if we ask them for the wait time (they should have told us that up front).

Easily one of the top for sushi and sashimi in the area. The cuts of fish and meat are outstanding without any compromise in quality with each bite melting in your mouth.

Service was wonderful and sushi was tasty. It was a Friday night so it was loud enough it was challenging at times to hear my friend, but that would be the only drawback. Highly recommend

Everything about Yume Sushi is excellent, from the gorgeous, unique delicious dishes, to the sake list to the lovely urban chic decor. I'd highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that appreciates an experience - and food - that "stays with you". We love going here, Chef Peter never fails to astound us.
