We invite you to explore our creative spin on Asian-inspired cuisine.

Our produce is sourced locally.
Our fish is always fresh, never frozen.
The red tuna is flown in fresh from Hawaii 2-3 times a week.
The goat cheese is from Mackenzie Creamery in Hiram.
The hydroponic greens are grown by Great Lakes Growers in Burton.
The coffee is roasted by Crooked River Coffee in Cleveland.
The tofu is hand-crafted by Cleveland Tofu Company.

We also offer delicious vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free choices.

We are located on Main Street in beautiful downtown Chagrin Falls, steps away from the best view in Northeast Ohio.

Umami supports local and sustainable purveyors whenever possible.  We use only the finest quality meats, cheeses, produce, and fish.
