Similar to some previous reviews....10 course Omakase menu was a bit boring, too much sushimi. For the price, I’d expect more innovation for the taster menu. We went to similar a restaurant in Boston recently and that was a bit more expensive but MUCH more...More

Small, intimate restaurant; not fancy. Great sushi, sashimi etc. Outstanding Chef's specials. The cold tastings were amazing, delicate combinations.

We to Uchiko for a late dinner. The brussel sprouts are amazing. The sushi was very good but the nigiri cuts were small as were the rolls. Savanna was a great server!
