Went last night to Uchi and what an experience!! John Sizemore, our waiter, was beyond excellent! He took over and navigated the menu for us. He especially treated me, a non-sushi eating person, like royalty. Picked dishes for us and pushed me out of my...More

My favorite aspect of a visit here is the presentation. The food is wonderful, although a bit overpriced, but it’s the way it’s presented that is always a joy.

My visit in his place after reading the reviews and many of various Austin publications you’ll realize how far off they are. This place is ridiculously expensive, entirely unconventional, and not worth the effort or the wait. From the moment you walk in the door...More

My first time was almost perfect, with just 1 or 2 things holding it back from a 5/5. Fast-forward to 2 years later, I go again, this time with my family, and man, what a meal. I got the "Server's Tasting", which is essentially a...More

Depends on what part of campus, but the 20, 10, and 7, among others, all transfer to the 3 at Guadalupe/8th. The 3 will drop you off at Lamar/Treadwell, which is basically at the front door.
