Reservations are encouraged and can be made up to 1 month in advance for parties of up to 12 guests. Walk-in seating is limited to the Sushi Bar and is subject to wait times. Patio seating is weather permitting and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. We look forward to serving you, Kanpai!

    Husband and I went here for our first wedding anniversary. We did have our reservation at 10 pm so the restaurant was a bit loud initially but quieted through the night. The sushi chef, Zach, was very friendly and super helpful with suggestions. We chose the omakase. Everything was superb, melt in your mouth sushi, crisp, light tempura. The quality of the fish was fantastic. I lived in Japan for a time so this food was very nostalgic for me, but added its own unique flavors. David was very knowledgeable about the sake and other beverages. We had a fantastic time, all of the staff were great. Definitely would recommend for people who love Japanese food, we will be coming back for another special occasion. Thank you to the staff for helping make our first anniversary special.

    Uchi always delivers but my only elephant in the room is the noise level. I could barely talk with my date since it was so loud.

    We did the omakase and we enjoyed not having to pick any of our food items. We had a sweet server who was kind and helpful. Everyone was happy to share tips and described the dishes well. This is a no judgement zone. We were given spoons to drink up the broth that the fish was in. We were able to fully enjoy each plate. Shoutout for the few bonus items we got for the birthday boy
