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."

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."

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!"

The place is great.... took my
date and we both had a great time. Perfect ambience."

You can't have a bad meal here.
Excellent service too. I highly recommend."

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."
Dined on 11/16/2013
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."
Dined on 10/26/2013
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."

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 10/16/2013
The sushi rolls are very good and
with interesting taste combinations. The appetizers were also very good and unique."
Dined on 10/2/2013
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."

A great place to take a date.
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."
Dined on 9/2/2013
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."

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!"

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 8/18/2013
the service was truly poor. the
drink orders were not taken correctly and some food never made it to the table. also, a bus boy kept coming and taking plates and chopsticks/flatware still in use. the server did not once come to check and make sure that we had everything. disappointing to state it mildly. what was once a hot spot (4-5 years ago) is now dying a slow death."
Dined on 8/12/2013
We frequent uptown sushi...best
service ever last night!"
Dined on 8/9/2013
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!"
Dined on 8/7/2013
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."

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

Our dining experience was great!
Food was delicious and service was great!"

Great atmosphere, wonderful food
and excellent service!"

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."
Dined on 6/14/2013
Very good place for group or a
foursome food terrific!"
Dined on 6/22/2013
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."
Dined on 5/24/2013
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."
Dined on 5/23/2013
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."
Dined on 5/11/2013
My fiancé and I have been here
many times and this time the food was no good. He ordered a black pepper tuna sushi. He said the tuna was not bear as good as he expected. We both had the flat iron steak for dinner. Mine was wonderful and his was overlooked and tough. He was very disappointed with the entire meal. The server was slow but very friendly. I wouldn't recommend Uptown Sushi after this last trip."
Dined on 5/11/2013
Pretty sure I could eat a bathtub
full of the roll with the green Tabasco sauce. Nice, intimate, interesting atmosphere. Excellent service, as always."
Dined on 5/9/2013
The menu does a good job of
describing scrumptious food but the food falls short of the promise. I believe that the executive chef needs to do a taste review. Waitstaff is friendly but my green tea cup went empty twice during lunch. Pricing is high for so-so food in small portions."
Dined on 4/2/2013
The sushi was good, but it wasn't
the best I have had in Houston. I think you can get better for a bit less. Still a cool place for a drink."
Dined on 3/28/2013
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."
Dined on 3/29/2013
Uptown Sushi has the bestest and
freshest sushi I've ever tasted. The service is excellent. They also make the best Cosmo's ever...!"
