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.

Everything looked liked baked fetus, food out of the trash bin, or grated seasoning. Refused to punish myself.

Very well prepared. The ingredients are top notch and the flavor combinations were well thought out and enhanced the dishes tremendously. We gave our server a price point and asked them to treat us to a variety of different dishes. They brought out an array that even turned our sushi skeptics into fans. The service was attentive and overall experience... More

We've been here twice, once for happy hour and once just for regular dinner. Location is nice but like many restaurants in this area, parking is either valet or on the streets. The resturant itself is pretty. Decor and lighting is great. Both times our servers were very good. The food is excellent!. Everything seemed fresh and was very well... More

We have eaten at Uchi no less than 45 times since they opened. This year we decided to go there for New Year's Eve. We set at the sushi bar. There were no party hat or horns, the party was the Omakase dinner which was seven courses for two. The udama sake (salmon quail egg), foie gras crème caramel, taraba... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. It was much more than just sushi. I think the best way to experience this restaurant is to have the omakase as you really get an idea of the best dishes. The service is always wonderful. Try to make reservations but if not get there at 5 or later in the night... More

First time. We have heard this is one of the top rated restaurants in Houston. Trust me, it was amazing!! Service was spectacular (Shane) and his friends were spot on. The food was unlike anything I have ever had. To call it sushi is like calling a Ferrari a nice looking car. You need reservations far in advance however it... More

We love this place! Tough to get a reservation but well worth it. We have eaten here a couple times and each is better than the last. They have a few staple menu items however they also have others that rotate seasonally. We have never eaten a bad meal. Perfect for sharing. Don't miss the brussel sprouts!!

...I made the mistake of ordering my least favorite thing I got last time. Don't get me wrong, the food here is outstanding, unique, worth the wait, and definitely worth coming back over and over. I really like sweetbreads and ordered them over a year ago at Uchi and forgot how much I didn't like how they served it. Moving... More
