    Best way to experience Uchi is to trust your server bring you plates to share! They will not steer you wrong. Every single course is incredible.

    Excellent service. We just asked our server to bring us whatever she would order and it did not disappoint, plus we were able to spend more time enjoying each others’ company instead of pouring over the menu. Definitely try the tempura walu and the oyster (surprise! It’s spicy!)

    Delicious food and great service. Dim lighting ambiance, great for dates and celebrations. Recommend making reservations ahead of time, there’s a small bar area that seats about 6-7 people that’s first-come first-serve.

    We had a great time at Uchi! The food was spectacular and the service impeccable. They allowed plenty of time to taste our selctions and we did not feel any rush. The waitress was fantastic and so were all the other employees who came by to check on us. It was a fantastic experience and we will be back!

    Wow! I had been to Uchi before (in Austin) and it was good, but this visit was outstanding. We had a small party and were sat in a cozy booth. It was actually easy to find street parking a block away but I understand they also have free valet if you're into that. The restaurant was packed and high-energy. Lighting is a bit low, so use those phone camera lights to read the menu. We are older lol and our eyesight is going. Anyway! Once we got settled in we had a few drinks - all were excellent, from the zero-proofs to sake to some German sparkling wine. Then the real fun began. We ordered willy-nilly starting with "cold tastings" which are their signature dishes and nigiri. Not a single off note in the mix of about a dozen different things we shared around the table. Flounder with crunchy quinoa was a hit, as was the tuna loin, the salmon belly with tiny serrano shavings on top, the short rib, both vegetarian and regular "shag" rolls, and we ate all the tempura and karaage we could get our hands on. Even something simple like edamame was inspired with a touch of char and citrusy salt, we couldn't stop eating it. The real surprise was dessert because I usually don't eat it, but the fried milk was a dessert even dessert-haters like me can get behind - not too sweet and a different flavor/texture with every bite. Overall, we were won over by the chef's innovation and creativity and joyful/playful menu, the great service, the atmosphere, everything. Really can't go wrong here. The damage: around $600 for 5 people, including drinks and tip, extremely reasonable compared to other places we like to go.

    It has been years since I have been to Uchi and I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to my expectations based on the first few times I went, but I was blown away at how awesome this place still is! We let our waiter plan our meal and every single bite was absolutely fantastic! They do a great job at mixing flavors with just the right balance to make every plate heavenly! Can’t wait to go back!

    We got a reservation to celebrate our anniversary, and our server Virginia made sure it was a memorable experience! The Chef's Tasting is a must for those looking to have an adventure without stressing what to order, and the variability of what was included across presentation, ingredients, abd textures will keep you engaged for the entire meal. We spent around two hours at Uchi between 13 courses (three were desserts) and a bottle of sparkling wine. Plan for about the same amount of time so you can enjoy the experience fully. Thank you again to Virginia and the entire Uchi staff and chefs! Highly recommend.

    Excellent birthday dinner for party of 5 including 2 children. Fresh nigiri selection was superb with highlights of ocean trout, amberjack, rosey sea perch, chu toro, and golden eye snapper. Happy hour nibbles were generous and good value with highlights being tuna bites and walu walu. Other delicious bites were machi cure and a white fish with crunchy quinoa. Always love my experiences at Uchi!
