Really good service

Efter reading a loads of reviews on tripadvisor we decided to check this place out. Its a busy and chic place you can dress up or be more casual.

I checked open table for a last minute dinner last night and an open reservation was found. It was a complete surprise. My husband had a lot of interesting fish off the daily special menu and thought it was unique and fabulous. We tried the grilled edamame and it was the best I've ever had! One of the popular items...

If you get a chance (and enjoy sushi), this is a must stop. Go on a date or with friends, tell the waiter what you want to spend per person and just bring you dishes. I did this w 5 friends, and other than the crisp brussels sprouts (very good), we had amazing sushi that none of us had ever... More

Our first time here but not the last. We tried 6/8 items and all were fresh and prepared to perfection. Explore the menu and enjoy!

One of the best restaurants I've been to. Very fresh ingredients and the recipes are quite creative. the fact the place changes its menu is also something I like since it means there are new things to try. You do have to take some responsibility as well in the fact that not everything is going to be to your liking... More

We didn't want to leave! We thought maybe we could just move tables and start over again - and then again. Great food is great food - and always to be appreciated. But there exists another level - and to my wife and I, it's a combination of surprise and delight that is impossible to quantify -- or describe properly... More

We made reservations on open table four weeks in advance for 8 pm. We we immediately seated and had saki. Our favorite dishes were the sea bream and the pitchfork rolls. We also has salmon Tina and yellowtail nigiri and they were decent but not the cats meow. We also tried the Brussels sprouts of which well portioned and we... More

This was my second trip to Uchi and I adored it again. There is some modern food that is too precious for my taste, or too complicated. But Uchi's food is interesting without being precious, and deliciously simple. If you only eat one thing, eat the foie gras sushi. But there are a dozen other items on the menu that... More

I was alone. Usually is sad to have dinner alone, but the staff wisely placed me at the counter where I was just opposite to their chefs. So I was entertained and socialized. The food is good and very fresh and well prepared. The service is very scroupolous and kind. The taste is different from many Japanese restaurant I've been... More

Uchi is just a wonderful place - fantastic food and genuinely warm people. We let the waiter know what we like and dislike and he brought out food until we said stop. Everything was balanced and delicious. Will always visit when I'm in town.
