An oyster lover’s delight!

Umi Sushi & Oyster Bar

Thoughtful design touches make Umi an attractive place to pamper your taste buds. And handpicked seafood is carefully delivered quickly and at precisely-cold temperatures so that you can have the most satisfying meal experience.

Umi?s chef, Kiyokuni Ikeda, became a self-taught chef at the age of 10. Working at a high-end Tokyo restaurant as a teen, he learned the important foundations of sushi, and brought that knowledge to America where he worked at distinguished sushi restaurants for 15 years before bringing his expertise and creativity to Umi.

For a truly one-of-a-kind seafood experience in Temecula, visit Umi Sushi & Oyster Bar.

Call (951) 770-8504  for reservations.

1909 Temecula

1909?s building has a story or 1,200 to tell. Well before it became home to the ?handcrafted fluid and fare? of 1909, the building was a trading post, auto shop, and in the 1970s, it was the roughest bar in town. In fact, there are still bullet holes in the ceiling from bar fights of decades past. But today, you?ll find a welcoming, industrial vibe with a pub atmosphere.

From brunch to lunch to dinner to late-night dining, you?ll find scratch-made burgers, salads, desserts, and unique appetizers — all with delicious flavor.

Also, if you have a furry four-legged friend, you’ll be happy to know 1909 has pet friendly patios.
