It is a perfect restaurant for sushi and wine lovers. We loved this place. If you will visit this restaurant, you need to try the unagi fusion rolls and the tuna tatar.:)

While staying in Uvita for a few weeks, We had to find a place to fill our sushi fix. Mosaic not only had quality ingredients, the rolls were well made and not generic, but creatively created. Staff was extremely responsive and courteous and the cocktails...were excellent. Looking forward to returning.More

For the three years we have lived off and on in Uvita-Mosaic has been our "go to place". With Covid, all restaurants had to make hard decisions, this has in no way affected the quality or service at Mosaic. The food comes piping hot. There...are daily specials. We can count on the Mosaic experience to be a special one for us and our guests. Casey, Sara, Dan, Illium, Tucco and the others in the kitchen take enormous pride in putting forth their very best every day. The food is unfailingly excellent and the presentation artful! We recommend Mosaic to all the guests who frequent our inn. They are unanimous in their praise. many stay for days and eat every dinner there. The addition of specialty wines for sale has elevated what Mosaic has to offer and has proved to be a huge benefit for our guests providing high quality wines while saving them a walk or drive to town Thank you to all the staff and owners for making Mosaic a magical place!

This little gem was a delight. The food is fresh and local, the wine selection is thoughtful (and they have a little wine store). My kids went crazy for the fresh goat cheese and the panini with pesto. Most unique of all is that our...waiter asked our names AND REMEMBERED THEM ONE WEEK LATER!!! He was really great. There wasn't a single thing we disliked. Thank you for the wonderful experience!More

We ate here 3x. I think it may be the best place in town. We had salads, paninis and sushi. The sushi was excellent! But it was all good. The staff is very friendly. The drinks are amazing.

We had the pleasure of eating at Mosaic 2 nights ago, what a great experience. Our server Eliam was so sweet and attentive. The food was fantastic, very fresh tasting sushi, great selection of paninis and nice wines. The decor and atmosphere were great, good...play list and well put together decor. I would highly recommend Mosaic for dinner or drinks and appetizers.More

Outstanding experience! Had the roll of the day Paradise and Mosaic with tempura veggies; IT WAS BEYOND Delicious. I would have taken pictures but to be honest the plates had barely made it to the table and we went IN! Truly delicious food and extraordinary...ambiance - good service and reasonable prices too. Great job guys, many blessings to you all!More

For 3 weeks, I was within walking distance of this restaurant. I had heard about it from others and wanted to go right away. The service was exceptional, the drink fine, but my sushi was strange. I love sushi but I am not a sushi...snob. I just didn't like it at all. It fell apart, the rice was strange -maybe not sushi rice?, the ingredients were not flavorful. I am not sure what it was missing but something. A friend had me taste the flavored almonds and they were delicious! The head waiter was attentive and delightful. Wanted to know my name right away and remembered it the whole night! Hire him!! He is great!More

We're so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the sushi. I can guarantee that we only use sushi rice and, as you'll see by our other reviews, only fresh ingredients. It would be great to know which sushi roll you got so we could...More

We had a good time dining here. I had the spicy margarita to drink, which was very spicy but worth the pain. Their sushi was also delicious. Very fresh and well made. It's got a hip environment without feeling formal. Very nice for a beach...town.More
