    Umeda is hands down the best restaurant in LA. Bazaar by Jose Andres was my favorite for years, with its unique and inventive takes on classic Spanish food. Umeda does the same with Japanese food. Nothing is ordinary. The flavors and textures are new and extraordinary every time, and the freshness is incomparable. Every time we experience Umeda I marvel at what a gem it is. Unhurried but attentive service, uncluttered and peaceful design and decor. I could eat here every day and still find new things to try instead of relying on just a favorite dish or two.

    I had black cod crab crab rice cake mixed sashimi fried oyster lettuce yellowtail sushi The sashimi was good. The cod and crab rice cake were decent but comparable to other cheaper restaurants. The oyster is not fresh. Yellowtail was mediocre. It is like 200 with nothing great here.

    Umeda is a fantastic sushi spot. They keep it real with quality cuts of fish and innovative dishes—not the spot for rolls drenched in mayo and sauces if that’s your thing. It’s a splurge, but you’re getting quality for your coin. Front of House staff and chefs are awesome!

    It was empty except 2 other people eating there. Smelled a little funny and wasn’t particularly an upscale ambiance - but these are certainly upscale prices! $9 for one bite-sized cod lettuce cup. It was yummy, but not out of this world. The spicy tuna on crispy rice was super-salty. I won’t be going back… :/

    Cumulatively - price point, quantity and quality - it’s quite mediocre. You can get the same quality with more quantity (and more creativity) at less expensive places. There is nothing special nor gripping about it that makes you want to come back to experience again. Just meh. The best part of the experience was the service as everyone was very attentive. 10/10 for the team!

    Made a reservation here for a birthday celebration and didn’t realize how small the restaurant was (only about twelve tables!). The food was exceptional, my favorite being the baked oyster ginger miso. We ordered the sea eel wappa sushi, several pieces of sushi, and oyster shooters. Definitely will be back to try more.

    The food was subpar and overrated. I’ve seen a lot of comparisons to Nobu online but please don’t believe the hype. Fish quality wasn’t good. Service was horrible and the food wasn’t anything worth the “Nobu” prices. On top of that, the service was terrible even though we were the only ones dining there apart from one other couple. Waiters were rude and had no patience to answer questions and ambiance sucked.

    Came with my daughter a few days ago and kept dreaming of the salmon carpaccio with miso and lemon olive oil flavors - amazing and addictive. Seared Cod in lettuce cups was another perfect, unique flavor. As is the baked crab on toasted rice (they also serve the classic soicy Tina version). Had to cone back on my own 3 days after my first visit!
