Very good Sushi experience
Very chic, excellent sushi. I would reccomend improve the lighting as for lunch we did find the place too dark. Otherwise the experience was very good.

Pretty sure I could eat a
Pretty sure I could eat a bathtub full of the roll with the green Tabasco sauce. Nice, intimate, interesting atmosphere. Excellent service, as always.

let the chef decide
We did something out of our comfort zone and just asked the waiter to have the sushi chef design a platter for the four of us. It was fabulous. Our favorites were the "Nigiri-Zushi with toppings" as well as the truffle maguro appetizer.

Good find for business
Things that went well:
Seating: I had made the reservation for a business lunch requesting a bigger table than normal for two and also a quieter spot. The hostess picked an excellent location.
Food: Excellent. I had been to Uptown Sushi before but my colleague had not. He loved the food.
Pace: Very quickly the server came to ask for drinks, take our order, and return with the food.
Things to improve:
In my reservation note, I had requested the check to be split as we were on separate expense accounts. However, we were presented with a consolidated check. Not only are credit card receipts alone are not considered sufficient by the finance dept, we had to go through the math calculations of splitting the check.

Food is outstanding although on the pricey side...Famous for their Martinis and the wine list is very good as well. I would definetely recommend this for both groups and for a night out with your special someone.

Great sushi, but may be a little pretentious. Dishes are a bit on the rich (as in heavy flavor) & spicy side, if that's your thing.

The sushi was fresh and tasty but the lemon drop and apple martinis were the highlight of the evening.

Uptown Sushi is not just about sushi, the meny is quite "fusion" oriented, but I did go there for the sushi, and the peppered tuna sashimi was excellent. The server was nice and attentive. I didn't have one of the expensive items on the sake menu, only a much more reasonable one, but it was good. And Uptown Sushi serves a very tasty and generous portion of green team ice cream, which cleans the palate nicely after the fish. The decor is innovative and the place just looks and feels luxurious.

Still great quality!
Still top grade sushi after all these years. Restaurant week menu is solid, the lunch is the better deal. Keep up the good work guys!

Fantastic Sushi Place
We went there for Houston Restaurant Weeks and it was a fantastic deal. The food was great, the Saki flight that came with the dinner was fun and tasty, and discovering their Cheesecake Chimichunga was the find of the year. It's an unexpected treat!

What a deal!
My parents and I went to Uptown Sushi for Houston Restaurant Weeks and had a fabulous experience! Iris was our waitress - she was great! The HRW menu had 4 courses and all were amazing. My mom and I had the delicious asian salad and my dad had the garden side salad (he liked it). The 2nd course (ground kobe beef with quail egg, salmon cubes) was great! The 3rd course (options: assorted sushi plate, steak/lobster combo, and red snapper) were yummy! And finally the desserts were good - pretty standard but a nice close to a great dinner. I'd definitely go back there for fresh sushi or a special occasion!

The set-up at Uptown is very conducive to dates. The booths are very isolated and even the tables are separated by walls. The food is excellent as well. I was there for the HRW menu and was very pleased with their offering. I had an Asian salad that was perfectly flavored, tu-nachos that had crisp wonton chips topped with fresh tuna, a great selection of sushi and nigiri for a main course, and a flourless molten cake for dessert. This menu also came with a complementary tasting flight of saki. Such a delicious meal for a great price supporting a great cause. Highly recommend!

The sushi rolls are very good
The sushi rolls are very good and with interesting taste combinations. The appetizers were also very good and unique.

Sushi as she does it
Wonderful sushi. Great appetizers. What stands out to me in a sushi restaurant is the freshness of their ingredients. As a buffer I usually order the Tiger Eye roll. I didn't do that here, but the selections I made had very little sauce (flavor adders). Still, the sushi was very flavorful and, to my surprise, didn't need any extra sauce to complete the taste. Kobe Cube appetizer melted in my mouth until the crispy baked rice was the only piece left; very delicious. I'll be back. For sure.

Great sushi ... But expensive
Uptown Sushi has excellent sushi - fish is very fresh - rolls include the standard fare and some very creative selections. Drinks & wine list are very expensive.

one of my favorites
Uptown Sushi is always good and a great atmosphere. It is our "go to " place in the Galleria for Japanese food. Relaxing and nice service. Always up to its standards.
