Umi Sake House is a unique Japanese cuisine restaurant in the Belltown area of Seattle featuring the highest quality seafood available in the Northwest, a large izakaya-style tapas menu, and boasting a sake list of over 60 imported Japanese bottles. The interior is multi-faceted, with a black slate tiled traditional dining room, a gorgeous 14 person capacity wooden sushi bar, a semi private "tatami" room which holds 12 people, a larger 25 person private dining room, an enclosed "back patio" casual dining room complete with tropical garden, a black concrete liquor bar with custom sake cocktails and fusion traditional cocktails, and a "front porch" casual dining area with a daily extended happy hour from 4-8pm. The variety of atmospheres allows for a different experience with every visit, and the vastness and quality of the menu does the same. For the budding sake enthusiast or the seasoned veteran, the sake menu at Umi is bottle for bottle the best found anywhere outside of Japan!

Great service. Ask for, and got, some really good suggestions for food and sake! The sashimi was great!

Great service, kind staff, and very good sushi. I just miss the ambiance of pre covid days. I do appreciate they were enforcing health safety for all guests.

This place is a gem. We went for happy hour. The sashimi is incredibly fresh and creamy. There are lots of varieties of sake to taste. The prices are very, very reasonable. They did a fabulous job redoing the place and the service for coronavirus-related safety. We will be back – often!

It was our Friday night date dinner. We were there for the last 1/2 hour happy hour. Great choices of food menu and drinks. Short ribs and sashimi plate were delicious. Quality meat and fish. The spider roll was awesome! We were told that we can have 1 1/2 hour for our meal because of the limited tables at this time. They called to confirmed the reservation. Service was great!! Will recommend for sure!

Not as great as we remember. That said, they had just re-opened given Covid lockdown and we will return in a month or so and we’re confident they’ll be back at a 5 star rating.

We went for my girlfriend’s birthday, and we weren’t disappointed. The service and food were great, and the atmosphere was awesome too. If you’re looking for a nice place to eat with a decent sized menu, I’d highly suggest.

While the food and service was good, I felt they had not taken precautions to ensure cleanliness. They are still reusing dirty old menus and I observed them wiping down tables with just some rag and no cleanser. Also straws weren’t offered with beverages and servers weren’t wearing gloves. I would not recommend due to those facts.
