Good sushi in an elegant setting
The restaurant's decor is gorgeous and, especially for a sushi restaurant, quite sumptious. Service was very attentive. I ordered a sashimi salad and a few pieces of eel sashimi. All of it was very fresh and delicious. The reasons for 4 of 5 in food and ambiance: 1) I find the menu to be a bit pricey for what it is, and 2) I dined for lunch, and for almost the entire time, I could hear the staff laughing behind me - I don't know if they were the servers or the sushi chefs (all voices were male,) but they were loud, at it got to be rather annoying.

Not Uni's fault, but the children
Not Uni's fault, but the children in the next booth were obnoxious! Banging feet on booth, jumping around and extremely loud. Too bad their parents had zero control. It was more obnoxious when the parents just talked louder over the hollering children. Take your kids elsewhere if they are not behaved! Also, it was entirely too cold for nearly everyone in the back area where we were seated. That is hard to work around with it being 100++ outside and the server was more than happy to have it turned off for a bit. The food, as always, was fun, colorful, varied and delicious!! Thanks, Uni for a good spot for birthday celebrations.

Creative, outstanding specialty
Creative, outstanding specialty cocktails! The Asian take on the ceviche was incredible along with the shrimp tempura "tacos". Both dishes were delicious. I look forward to dining here again next time I am in the area.

Food and service were excellent.
Food and service were excellent. Enjoyed the recommendations of our server. Food arrived promptly and was well timed with our drinks and appetizer. Only drawback was bland interior of the restaurant with no real view of anything special. It was a warm night and we chose to eat inside not only because of the weather but the outside eating area was plain and uninviting.

Always fresh, always great food
I go to Uni Sushi about once per month -- the foot is always very fresh and tasty. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys sushi/sashimi.

Slow, loud, but good sushi
We visited for Saturday night dinner. The place was packed. The noise level was very loud. Food was very good. Unfortunately, the service people are so busy, service is slow. The place was teeming with large groups with small children who were allowed to run wild throughout the place. Not the place for a quiet dinner.

Quality dining establishment
Uni Sushi is a restaurant that I would take some of my more discerning relatives or friends to with the expectation that it would not disappoint. The decor and ambiance is very chic and moderately elegant in a retro modern/ oriental fusion fashion. When our evening plans suddenly changed, the reception personnel were very accommodating and without any issue changed my later expected reservation to an earlier (3 hours) one an had us (party of 6) seated within 10 minutes. Services was very professional and efficient. Waiter had a good menu knowledge and made good recommendations. Food was very good. The California roll was a little underwhelming (snow crab) but good. Pricing was okay. There is good local competition - so keep it up!
