Origami is one of the best restaurants in Uptown! Everything is delicious, especially the gyoza and specialty sushi rolls.

Service and food are always reliably good here. Excellent sushi and rolls. Other entrees exceptional. One thing we tend to notice here is that even when the restaurant is quiet (which it was) drinks and appetizers and timeliness of staff to greet you is much too long, not setting a positive path for how good this place really could be.

Our food was great and the service was terrific. Just one suggestion - if you are serving tomatoes in the summer, please make sure they are ripe. No excuse for a pale mealy tomato.

The staff was accommodating, the manager was excellent the food was of a high standard. The ambience was not very good, but not bad either. We will come back but we hope it’s steps up a notch in atmosphere.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but is VERY OVERPRICED. The food was good but not worth the price. I would suggest going somewhere else.

The noise level was low, but I went early and there were no many people, food was great as well as service I ordered one of the features cocktails and I didn’t find anything special
Will definitely come back if I get the chance

Food wonderful! Ambiance, sports bar, not what I was expecting. Service less than wonderful. But for a hip hop sushi lover- your spot.

It’s an uptown place catering to a hipper crowd, but without the super snooty decor. I wish our waiter would have engaged us more, we were looking for recommendations but I don’t think he was ready for that.

Food was great.

Will return.

We sat outside in the hip cul de sac of the uptown Lagoon. Watching people and making up stories about them after our charming server took our orders. The meal was outstanding. My niece had a great birthday and we all were pleased and happy.

Birthday meal. Good food. Attentive service. Sushi is expensive but good sushi tends to be expensive, so it wasn't a surprise. Would go back again.

With so many mediocre “Japanese” restaurants around, it’s hard to find something authentic. Origami honors the delicate flavors of Japanese cuisine with their refined menu and their dedicated attention to detail. Easily one of the best sushi spots in the city and surrounding suburbs. Also, our bartender, Dominic, was a delight. We look forward to our next visit!

Our waitress Danielle was very unpleasant. My friends and I both noticed her tone as she took our food and drink orders and as she checked on how our food was. It was clear she didn’t actually care and it was simply a protocol for the establishment. Not sure if it is because we were black or not. However, her tone was MUCH chipper when it was time for us to pay and leave.

As much as we did NOT want to tip her we both did (very well) and I hope that in the future she will not treat other black patrons this way.

It’s very unfortunate and I am extremely disappointed to have had this experience.

If the service improved it would make the entire experience feel a little more worth the higher prices. The sashimi and sushi options are always great. The gyoza is delicious. One of my staples so I will always return, but small improvements could be made.
