    Great service! Our servers helped by describing menu items and recommending things suitable to our preferences and tastes. Zack was very friendly as was our other server. The sushi and hot items presentation was really elaborate as were the different flavors.

    Food fantastic, service great, expensive but that wasn’t a surprise, not crazy about wine list because not familiar with with any of the wines listed so you will spend at least $100 on bottle of wine you are not sure you will like. Very crowded & loud but that too was expected, the food is amazing though, will return!

    This was our first experience with Uchiko but have been to Uchi a couple of times. We were pleased with the flavors and offerings of the chef and staff. The service from Brooke was attentive and she made great suggestions from their menu. I will say the portions of some of our dishes were smaller than expected but all in all we enjoyed. The dining room is very energetic so please come ready for a good time!

    Food was amazing per the usual Uchi experience. Service was extremely slow and a couple times there was confusion on what was ordered, what we were waiting for etc. Also, we ordered about 12 courses and at times we had 3-4 plates on our table. For two people, it was hard to appreciate everything all at once. Food was amazing but this was definitely not the experience I was used to.

    Out of box sushi creations, unique flavor combinations. UCHI restaurants are very special; however, their newest member, Uchiko’s noise level is mind numbing. Even the waitstaff can’t hear their customers. Very hard to enjoy high end food, when the noise level mimics a rock concert venue. Furthermore, the tables are jammed packed in, like a cafeteria. The experience felt more like a Nobu experience. But, the sushi remains fresh and one of kind. Wear your earplugs.

    Great location, food and drinks were not as fluid coming out as it could be. But they’re only been there a month. Location is great and food was super delicious and of very high quality. Certainly on the pricy side with not a lot of food. But if you’re looking for amazing sushi, would highly recommend!

    Great experience. Took the family. Food was very good. Service was also very good. Portions were as one might expect if not a bit smaller, but executed to an exceptional level. Shame one cannot purchase a more reasonably priced bottle of sake so that there is a spectrum of spend. The hot sake was good enough though. Cocktails were lovely. Highly recommend but be prepared to leave hungry or drop a good bit of change...

    The very be at part was our kind and helpful server. She was so incredibly nice. My wine caught a fly right after it had been served, perils of outside dining. It was replaced with a glass that was about half full. She comped it and brought me a new full glass, and we got a comped dessert which was my favorite of all we tried. Definitely above and beyond for something which wasn’t even in her control. The rest of the Omakase was so delicious too!

    We were seated at the sushi bar at 6pm. Fantastic experience from the beginning. All of the food was amazing. The nigiri was special. Evan suggested great drinks for my wife and I. Every time we asked Justin for suggestions it did not disappoint. We’ve been to Uchi Austin and Uchi Denver. Honestly, this was just as good.

    Very good food. Chef's tasting menu was great but the courses came out sporadically and often we had two on the table at once. Felt a bit chaotic and unrefined as far as service goes considering the price. Besides that we loved our experience.

    food was great as usual for UCHI, and our waitress, Leah did a great job. Love the decor; major drawback was the loudness of the music. Made it very difficult to hear my husband during dinner. That's the only thing we would change.

    Food is excellent but pricey, very pricey. Every dish was exquisite and we had about 15 different plates. We had to ask for bottle of Sake 3 times and waited a good 40 min. Had to ask for ponzu 3 times finally came.

    My husband and I went to celebrate Father’s Day After two drinks( happy hour price) and some happy hour food, we left there still hungry and total bill was $250 including tip. I’ll not go back, food was okay. We also went to Uchiko in Austin for my Son’s bday celebration, back in last January, there were 4 of us, after eating, still hungry, we left after paying $570 for 4 people with 3 drinks….. There are far better sushi restaurants with better value for the money in Houston. I hope they make it Don’t go there unless you have deep pockets

    We had the best time trying Uchiko! As frequent visitors of Uchi over the last few years, we were excited to try this new concept. The flavors and quantity cannot be beat. We felt like we were in the best hands with Evan. He guided us through the menu and planned the timeline for our dishes seamlessly to ensure maximum enjoyment and taste. We will be back, and we will definitely request Evan’s section! His knowledge and passion was palpable!

    Overall, the ambience and service was great! However, I don't think the quality and taste of the food reflect their price. We chose to do the tasting menu and our favorite items were actually the sweet potato tempura and the fries that came with the wagyu. The nigiri were very small and the fish did not seem the best quality and some had a fishy taste. There wasn't a single nigiri that stood out. The steak and the spinach from one course were both extremely salty with us being unable to even eat the spinach. We also ordered the otoro nigiri off the happy hour menu and that also had a fishy taste and was disappointing. Service was overall very friendly but their timing/pacing was very off. The first 4 courses of our menu came out extremely fast and all 4 at the same time but towards the end, it was extremely slow and we just wanted to leave at that point. The food overall was just very average and was not worth the price. I believe the restaurant opened recently so maybe they are still working out the kinks but wouldn't recommend it at this stage.
