Sushi
Uchiko is the sister restaurant to Tyson Cole’s original Uchi. It matches that restaurant’s dedication to food, wine, and service, but it has a Japanese farmhouse aesthetic with crafted materials and warm finishes to round out a completely updated setting. The chef team at Uchiko has created a brand new selection of composed dishes and sushi, taken from ideas and plates created at Uchi. Uchiko is Uchi rede­fined. Reservations are encouraged and can be booked online up to 1 month in advance for parties of up to 12 guests. Walk-in bar seating is available 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!

    Uchiko has become our favorite in Austin. Whether we're celebrating something, going on a date night, or just in the mood for sushi, there's no better place to go. I'm absolutely ruined for sushi anywhere else!

    The food seemed smaller than at Uchi but most of it was still good. The fried chicken sauce was not great and very sour/bitter.

    I've been a Uchi and Uchiko fan for years (although I haven't been able to get a reservation at Uchi in a LONG time). Some things have slipped (changed) and I do understand staffing issues. Here are my observations: 1 car attendant had people backed up and the staffer hopping. I felt sorry for him trying to juggle all those people. In the past, dirty plates were picked up quickly. This wasn't the case. We had to ask for plates to be cleared and a yucky fried chicken plate sat on the table until the end of the meal. The wait staff have always been amazing. The young woman who waited on us was knowledgeable but spoke like she had to catch a plane (rushed through) . This was new to us. We asked for suggestions that had no raw seafood and she started going through the vegetarian menu. We had to explain what "no raw seafood" meant. Pregnant women are advised not to eat raw fish. She also spent a fair amount of time listing all of the seafood that was farmraised (raw). We had to explain again "NO raw seafood". She went to the chef to ask what was farmraised and then told us again. We gave up on that one. Just a very different experience.

    Wow, what a great experience. You can tell they really care about food and their patrons here. Everything was amazing - we had the omesake 10 course - and could not have been happier. The service was top notch and everything came out with an explanation about what it was and why it was paired that way. Fantastic!

    Wonderful happy hour menu and overall dining experience. I dined with friends during happy hour and we ordered most of the special menu. The food was delicious (on par with sister Uchi) and coursed well so that we were not overwhelmed at any point. The wait staff were extremely friendly and attentive making the experience even more enjoyable. Highly recommend.

    My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday and it was such amazing amazing experience! Definitely lives up to the hype! We sat at the counter where Elliot took care of us. We opted for the tasting menu and I would recommend that to all. Elliot was such a pro - every dish was detailed to our likes. My faves were the eggplant nigiri and kale and Asian pair dish. Can’t thank Elliot enough for making our night!

    I've been to multiple omakase with friends and family in other parts of the country but none of the past experiences was quite worth the same that was offered at Uchiko. I've personally enjoyed that the chef and those managing the taste journey was open about the pricing and choices of the entree items being present. This could've been easily a $500+ meal. I'm thoroughly impressed with the freshness and presentation of each entree. Truly worth the 2hr experience.

    I can’t decide what was better – the food or the service. Both were absolutely excellent. Our server heard us debating between two dishes to order, and sent over the one we didn’t pick as a complimentary gift. Everything was delicious and the service was top notch. While it’s rather pricy, it’s certainly worthwhile as a dining experience. l look forward to my end of year bonus to come back again!

    Most of the dishes tasted burnt or too sour/bitter. The server recommended all dishes with the same flavor profile, so we should have explored the menu further on our own. The shrimp on the happy hour menu was dry and had charred black bits all over. Will likely not come back.

    As usual the food was amazing and totally worth every penny. We got the Omakase, which we love but the timing was off. They rushed the dishes at the end, serving us several things at once, which was okay for the sushi but a little annoying for the two cooked/hot dishes.

    The meal was delicious and everything came out on time. We went during happy hour and there’s really good choices on there. The best plates I recommend are the bluefin akami. The hama chili and the scallop. But honestly you can’t go wrong with any plate. Everyone is super knowledgeable and explains the plates well. Now on the the service. I’d rate it one of the best services experiences I’ve ever had. Everyone is on top of changing your plate and bringing the food on time. Nate was the best. We celebrated a birthday and he took care of us. Ask for Nate if you can. Best guy ever. Super attentive.

    We are chronic customers at Uchi. Been going since the place opened. Never the biggest fans of Uchiko (although I had a big birthday celebration there years ago) we decided to go for a current birthday meal. What a revelation! Our waitperson, Max, was incredibly accommodating and left us to explore the menu on our own because we were comfortable with the menu choices. The food was astounding (especially at happy hour!): tempura Japanese pumpkin, a baked pressed watermelon with Fig and tamarind, a super lean pork belly with coconut and kale. Fantastic!!

    Uchiko was a pleasant experience. I have not tried sushi or Japanese cuisine much before, but this was a really standout experience. Ordered all fish based rolls, and the soft shell crab stood out for us. We also got a sashimi, which was great. Tim served us, and was an absolute delight.

    Went to celebrate a special occasion with my family. The meal lasted 2.5 hours which is a really long time. From the moment we sat down, our waiter seemed angry or tired. It took her a really long time to take our order. We are regulars at Uchi Dallas so the extremely slow service is not something we were used to. We were only able to get a rsvp at 9pm and when we sat down, about 40% of the tables in the restaurant started to empty which meant they were not as busy. From where we were sitting we can see the kitchen and can see the waiters and chefs hanging out. Our waiter never came to refill our water or ask if we wanted to add anything else. She would walk along the side of the restaurant and go to the back for awhile until we were able to see her again. At the end, she took my fiancé’s dessert order and walked away before we could even order ours. After being gone for 20 minutes, we finally had to wave down another waiter who was very nice and he ended up taking our order. Our waiter came back with an attitude and the bill and stood there for us to hand her the credit card that very moment. Not sure if it was because we were the only Asian-Americans in the restaurant but we really didn’t appreciate the way she avoided and treated us from the beginning but took time to chat with other tables. My fiancé’s chefs tasting was just okay, there are better omakase/chef tastings in Austin. My family and I ordered our own dishes as we are familiar with uchi’s menu so there were some overlap to the Dallas location. Unfortunately 4 of our dishes/ chefs tasting like the watermelon/tamarind dish, and steak were way too salty to finish. We really wanted to enjoy our dinner which was why we were willing to take a late reservation but the food, the service was very disappointing. We will not be returning to Uchiko Austin again.
