I visited twice in 2013. On both visits we tried the tasting menu. It changes based on the ingredients available but offers a great opportunity to try many dishes. The service is always excellent. They ensure the dishes flow and that new drinks are brought as needed.

My only complaint is the noise level. This is very small, very crowded restaurant with an very high level of noise.

I have been to all of the Uchi restaurants and this original is my favorite. Smaller and more intimate. Food is creative and delicious and service is perfect. So much more than just sushi. If you like Asian food and like fine dining, do not miss Uchi.

Loved the menu and sushi chef suggestions. Atmosphere was very nice - we sat at the sushi bar and the chefs were very attentive and prompt. We'll be back!

Choosing to have the chef's selection at a sushi place seems pretty risky, but my only regret from our visit is not letting the chef decide what we ate. What if we missed something truly exceptional!? Everything we did have was at least great, a few were fabulous, including the wine. It's hard now to remember all the individual dishes -- we were 4 and so had about 10 dishes, plus dessert. The flavor combinations were unexpected and wonderful. Lots of citrus, oils, pear, and the fish was sublime. We had reservations, and thankfully so; a 90 minute wait if we didn't. Nice decor, experience, but the food is the star here. Considerable hype, but in this case rightfully so.
