Everything here is always great,
best sushi in town. Only problem is that the new menu took away the best roll. Please bring the butter crab roll back!"

This has been one of my favorite
go to sushi bars in Houston. The specialty rolls are great, along w/the thick slices of sashimi. Love the avocado must soup too."

We've dined at Uptown Sushi upward
of 10 times. Everytime we are just as pleased with the experience. Outstanding sushi."

This place offers way more than
sushi although the sushi is excellent. Don't miss the tuna in truffle oil. It's outstanding as was the seared salmon. I will definitely return and am sorry it's taken me this long to discover it."

The sushi was amazingly fresh and
delicious as always, but the service was off ... VERY slow, which is highly unusual for Uptown. "

I frequented Uptown Sushi weekly
in its initial years after opening. The service was previously impeccable however I was extremely disappointed/frustrated with how slow it is now(50 minutes before we received appetizers). Additionally, they've gotten rid of some of the favorites (i.e. Tuna tartare). Needs a comprehensive upgrade in decor and service."

The grilled chicken soy salad was
phenomenal, we just had a long wait time to get our food. We also made a reservation for lunch but had to wait about 10 minutes to get a table...why even make a reservation? We are on a schedule. Other than that it was good!"

Uptown Sushi is consistently
DELICIOUS! Love the ambiance there. The food is exceptionally prepared and always fresh!"

Excellent service, atmosphere,
and, of course, sushi! Some favorites are the Uka roll, crazy roll, Don #2 roll, and avocado miso soup. Only complaint is that they don't seem to have a happy hour or any daily specials, as most other competitors do. Be prepared to spend some money here, but the quality and taste reflects the price. "

I have had lagging to poor service
each time I have dined here. The food and the atmosphere is good."

Keen sushi eater. Had two rolls
and a few sushis and a salad. Rolls were OK - not too impressed by the rice and by too much soya souce in them. Good presentation. Ambience very nice. Tables better than sushi bar."

I love uptown sushi and the food
is always great, however in trying to order a bottle of wine, the waiter was not sure of herself on the listing of wines available thus, unable to really answer questions. We ended up getting a bottle for $190 and it is one that you always decanter, and we had to ask."

Fabulous sashimi- fresh blue Finn!
Service wonderful: immaculate and stylish. Will go whenever I can!"

If you love sushi make sure you
keep this restatuant on your favorite list. Their sushi selections were good. We had a friend that is not into sushi so we found some chicken on the menu for him which he loved. Overall, service was excellent."

I have frequented this restaurant
for years. However,over the last two years it has started to fade into blah territory. The sushi was good but at best standard. Our server was very attentive and quick. Upon entering the restaurant you immediately notice that the decor has not been updated in quite some time. Curtains were hanging off the tracks, several light bulbs were out, the banquette fabric was dirty and stained as well as covered with crumbs from the previous diner I assume. But the kicker is the closer you got to the bathroom the stronger the sewer gas smell got. At some point they must have noticed and then covered it with air freshener which only made the smell stronger. Until some of these items are resolved i won't be returning."

It was an evening to honor the
memory of someone who also loved Uptown Sushi. We ordered salad, edamame, special rolls and sushi. All great and soooo very fresh. Attentive service without interfering with our conversation. It was a wonderful evening. It remains our favorite sushi..."

Absolutely a great place for
Sushi, best in Houston IMO"

Loved the ambiance!!! Valet came
and parked my car immediately. My reservation was at 8:30 pm and we arrived at 8:00 pm. We walk in and they let me know that I was early but I would be seated by 8:30 pm, and I was seated right at 8:30 pm. I requested a booth seat and I also had my booth seat as well. The food was very good! I will no longer be going to Ra Sushi to get my sushi fix."

I read some reviews of this place
and thought it might be too uppity up with the ambiance and service. Turns out I had a great server and wasn't snobby. The food was excellent. I would return."
Dined on 2/14/2014
The place is great.... took my
date and we both had a great time. Perfect ambience."

I brought my teen daughter for her
birthday, and made a special note in the reservation that it was for a birthday celebration. Upon arrival we were made to wait 30 minutes for our table, and were just about to leave when we were finally seated. We were put in the back corner next to the kitchen. My daughter really wanted sushi so we stayed. The food was good, but we won't come back to this establishment, nor recommend it."

I've been to Uptown Sushi many
times and they always have the freshest fish! Yellowtail, Salmon, Escolar and Snapper are my usual sashimi order. I enjoy their rolls but don't really have a favorite. It's a great place to catch up with friends - the interior design is attractive and keeps the noise level reasonable!"

You can't have a bad meal here.
Excellent service too. I highly recommend."
Dined on 1/10/2014
More than sushi available, but the
sushi is pretty outstanding! Great atmosphere for date night, but good for groups as well. A little pricey, but most sushi places are. I would definitely go back."

The astmosphere was upbeat with
the feel of an upscale modern New York restaurant. The food was very good. I reccomend the whole tempura catfish, very tasty. The poor service put a bit of a damper on an otherwise grfeat night. The young waiter seemed very inexperienced, forgetting orders and requests for water, not removing plates as we finished our apps, coming to the table at the wrong times, not being around when we needed service, etc. A little training would go a long way with this guy. I have eaten here many times and the service was much better in the past."

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."

We love Uptown Sushi for their
consistently great sushi, great service and awesome pomegranate martinis."

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."

The wave of bar attendee noise and
way too loud techno music dominates this place and made my hoped for relaxed dinner impossible. Good food, but overshadowed by the environment."
Dined on 10/15/2013
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."

Made reservations but they tried
to seat us in the noisy bar area where lots of pp standing right next to tables. Se then we had to wait 40 min for a table in DR. They were out of 2 kinds of sake we ordered. Food was very good but slow to come out. Expensive too but we enjoyed everything we had."

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

Excellent food and service. A beautiful restaurant."

Desert is the highlight. For
desert, I will give half more star. The service is super slow. As a group of five, we wait forever to get the dishes."

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!"

Pro - the HRW menu was great and
the food was amazing Con - Service was horrible. After we ordered, it took 50 min to get our appetizers. Then the server gave me the wrong entrée. Since I suspect he gave mine to another table (another table got the same entrée I ordered and they came half an hour later). I had to wait for my entrée for another 30 min. At the end, we were at Uptown Sushi for 2 hours and sitting around waiting most of the time. Not sure if the slow service was the server's fault or the kitchen but it was quite bad."

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!"
Dined on 8/17/2013
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!"
