We visited Uchi 4 time since 2014 and usually we enjoy it (a lot!).

This time we found out that a lot of things change out, and the “Uchi experience” in not anymore the wonderful experience we had previously:

- service was really really slow
- no suggestions or inspirations, we had to pick the plates
- food was salty, corrected with heavy spices (which was clearly not in harmony with the plate)
- cold plates (meat was cold)

The fois-gras and Pork belly are amazing :-). Even the “cheese-cake” is good!

Enjoy

We were visiting from out of town and our friends took us to dinner here. They suggested just letting the serve choose our dishes, which we did. She asked a few questions about likes and dislikes, and the plates started coming out. Everything was very fresh and flavorful. I can’t pick which dish was the best, they were all so good!

My husband and I were underwhelmed by this place. The food was ok, but not exceptional and very expensive. I almost laughed when my husbands meager piece of sushi arrived. It was a tiny piece of salmon that was supposedly specially seasoned. Perhaps we just aren’t into fusion Japanese food, at least where sushi and sashimi is concerned. We also felt the service was a bit rushed. For a special place and high prices, we didn’t feel it merited such rave reviews. We’ll find another place next time.
