    Santos was wonderful and made me the best sushi. He’s cordial, patience and kind. Thank you. The music is too loud and the selection to much like “head banging music”. Last thing I want at the end of a hard week as a lawyer. Please consider soothing music. Your big payers are older professionals and would appreciate something calming.

    Uchi is one of our favorites. We visit the restaurant frequently. I was very disappointed that we the amount of visits and money spent, I had to stand at the door waiting for my party. Uchi has the ability to see “my record” and that we never have missed a reservation. And I would have sat down and eaten even if my guest did t show. Our dinning experience was great as far as the food goes. We let the waiter bring us whatever. What really bother me is we did not order dessert but was served and charged. I usual love the experience but last night it did not feel good. And I felt a bit disrespected. And we spent $480. That is a lot of money!

    Seriously, this may be the best food I've ever had. The flavor profile of everything we ate was INCREDIBLE. From the moment we sat down and were served strawberry sorbet to the very last sip of Port, we were amazed. I've eaten sushi in places that the fish was flown in daily and Uchi still takes the cake. I have never been to sushi and not had soy sauce right in front of me. At Uchi, you don't need soy sauce. It was our first time, so we ordered the chef special and a few things that caught our eye, waygu tataki and scallops. Every bite of every dish was savored. Not to mention our sushi guy, Tree, and our server, Evi, were knowledgeable and very helpful. Tree even hooked us up with an extra dish to try as a welcome to Houston. This dining experience was the best part of our vacation. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We will be back!

    Only thing that ruined the dinner for us was the server mixing up our order and then getting upset at us for it. We were brought out two rolls we never ordered, and we let someone know. Our server then comes out and tries to tell us we did order it, and we confirm with him that we did not and he says with attitude “well enjoy it on the house”. He never brought out the 5 tomato rolls we ordered which is probably where he got mixed up although the two things are nowhere near the same. Third time eating at Uchi. First time excellent, second time was okay also because of service, third time not acceptable for how much we pay here.

    I was very disappointed with the service. It has been 2 years since I was able to go to Uchi due to Covid. I was so excited to return and I was disappointed. Waiters not so happy. Very little explanation. Of course the kid next to me was so damn loud but the service could have turned that around. I will not return!

    This was our first visit to Uchi and we will definitely return! The food and service were phenomenal! We chose to just have our server bring shareable plates of items that are recommended and they did not disappoint. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but it shouldn't be with the quality experienced.

    Delicate sushi and food are the rule at this restaurant. Try the candy bar dessert for only $6 (5/5)! As an unagi fan, I loved their take on the dish at $4 (5/5). The ham and egg roll was a standout and very delicious (5/5).
