I came for a birthday dining, so the restaurant's reputed high prices didn't deter me from indulging myself. The service was slow at the beginning but was pleasant and informative, and picked up speed as the dishes began to arrive at the table. We ordered the Tasting Menu which gave us a solid tasting for several of the restaurant's dishes, all of which(except for the oysters, which were just a bar short of great) had their own personality and flare and were delicious without overpowering the main ingredient's flavors or textures and were cooked exactly right. Easily one of the best seafood meals I've ever had.
While large and diverse, the alcohol menu is nothing to get excited about; even if you're celebrating, stick to the low end Israeli wines which offer great value for money instead of the pricey ones that just don't provide the bang for what they cost.
The restaurant's main detractor is it's interior design:
Namely there isn't any. The old building in which the place is housed is a mess of bare brick and crumbling plaster. Years of neglect have moved this condition from old and charming to ancient and alarming, and your eyes will wonder upwards from time to time, wondering weather if a piece of plaster might land in your plate. There's no in house music, so if you aren't chatty with your dining partners, you will quickly have an earful of the other diners around you.
Bottom line: If you absolutely must have excellent tasting fish and seafood, Uri Buri is uncontested in Israel.
If you're looking for the whole dining experience, you will be better off elsewhere.
