    We had reservations for 6 for a business dinner at Uchi. We were immediately seated outside to have a drink while our table was being readied. When seated we were taken care of very well by Linda. She was very pleasant and very efficient. The food was amazing as was the Sake. We will certainly go there again.

    We celebrated a birthday here at Uchi and it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. Made 4pm reservations at the counter and Koi took great care of us! The whole staff did as well! We were so enveloped in the environment and chatting with everyone we unfortunately forgot to take pictures of all the delicious dishes. Koi explained every dish very well and was patient with our questions. The Uchi team went above and beyond to help celebrate the birthday. It was truly an unforgettable experience. We will definitely be back. Thank you Uchi!

    First time to Uchi. Was up to the hype I must say. Very very good food and fabulous service. We had a mix of things. The hot tastings I must say was my favorites. Unexpected flavors and textures. The maki roll was underwhelming but the sushi was very good. Very fresh and great choice. I would definitely go again.

    It’s trying to achieve a young, energetic atmosphere with a price targeting at the wrong population. Loud music the whole time, something I wouldn’t call ‘energetic’, makes it difficult to make a conversation. Waiters and waitress are trying to make their dishes look/sound fancy, but just giving out a pretentious vibe.

    Experience was a little sub-par from what we’re used to. Unsure if they were understaffed. Overall still good, but the service by the waitress (not the sushi bar) was very slow. Hopefully just an off day.

    Though we were given our reserved seats late, the service to make up for it was phenomenal. Everything about my experience at uchi was outstanding. Andrew, our chef, was really great. I loved and was impressed by the texture and the balance of taste (sugar and vinegar) in nigiri rice that Andrew made. On-the-house dishes were additional pleasant surprises that I much appreciated. I would definitely recommend Uchi to my friends and families. Thank you for making my birthday a memorable day.

    Lots of overwhelming flavors. The sashimi servings were minuscule. If you don’t really like the taste of the fish, this place is for you. Bright spots were the sea bream and the spicy salmon rolls, but overall it was disappointing for us as we actually want to taste the fish. Service was outstanding.
