We had never been to Uchi despite hearing all the raves, and it certainly lived up to its reputation for presentation and quality. We were blown away by the unique offerings and and the great service we received. Save room for dessert - the fried...More

Excellent place for a date. Great food. Great service. Really nice staff. Took time to explain the menu and the different sushi. Always a challenge but well done on their part. Would go back for sure.

Complex sushis with many layers of flavor. Expensive but the quality and originality of sushis, hot plates and desserts make up for it

We did the 10 course tasting menu for a group of 3. Food was really interesting, fresh, well presented and prepared but felt very expensive for the amount of food! Restaurant itself wasn’t anything special at all. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.

The food was defiantly memorable and the service was great. Be prepared to have a reservation weeks ahead and wait for a table still. Also prices are very steep, but you get what you pay for. He ambiance is loud and your seated very close...More

I must admit I like an occasional Rainbow roll or some Spicy Tuna but after a while even that gets old. Here is the solution. Very creative approach to sushi. I don’t even know what we ate because my wife had waiter order for us....More

So did you take your 2 year old. Uchi isn't kid friendly in my opinion.

Absolutely. My last trip there was with my daughter, who is gluten-free. The waitstaff was immensely helpful and accommodating. This restaurant understands it's about the fod and the service!
