The food isn’t bad, but $9 for a single piece of basic nigiri sushi is absurd in Austin. Uchi

Soto has the best quality of sushi in Austin! Chef Andy has a very friendly personality and a huge passion to deliver only the best!! Every dish is nicely presented and worthy of a photo to share!

This was probably the worst sushi we have ever had. Everything tasted fishy and not fresh. We had a reservation for 7pm and waiting 30 min before they even sat us. Overall not a good experience. Definitely won’t be going back.

The food was amazing!! We had several amazing dishes but the Happy Hour Tuna with Truffles and Truffle Risotto really stood out. The wagu steak on the hot stones was pretty amazing too

Arrived early for 830 reservation - flippant hostess disappeared and left us waiting for 15 minutes. Table wasn’t ready, no sympathy. Just standing there waiting to sit down for a birthday dinner. Really ruined a special evening.

Lunch date with wife. Great moment was spent together with Chef Andy freshly made creation. That’s the amazing things about sitting at the sushi bar where you can tell the chefs what u like and don’t and let their imagination and skills to craft a memorizing meal for you and your loves one. It’s truly an amazing place for delicious, fresh and unpretentious sushi and sashimi. Highly recommend for sushi lover.

I had again a bad experience, I thought it was a bad moment last time I went; but I realized it is a thing. The food has not been consistent, and I mean in regards to taste, looks, freshness. I do not want to come back anytime soon. There is always something happening. Last time the food and a water condensation issue with the AC where the water was dripping on us all dinner.

Food not worth the high price. Not a sushi snob but there did not seem to be any noticeable flavor. Had to wait at last 40 min per item ordered and server up sold to the point of brining our more than we ordered and charging us for it. Went to Lucky robot the next day just to get some good sushi.

If you want an upscale sushi experience, seems like Uchi is truly the only way.

Soto was good, not great. The nigiri quality was just ok. The sushi tacos, truffle edamame and the karage were great! The service was GREAT! I would recommend those items for a Happy Hour, but not likely my favorite sushi dinner spot.

We are practically kicking ourselves over the fact that it took us this long to make it to Soto because it is in our neighborhood, and we pass it daily. We had a fantastic meal, with informative and gracious service provided by Max. He had just the right touch of helpful guidance and passionate knowledge about the food. Looking forward to returning, soon.

What can I say? My husband and I have been here twice in the few months we have lived in Austin--once for lunch and once for his birthday dinner--and each time have had a near perfect experience. The food is innovative, delicious, and beautifully presented, and the service is friendly, beyond knowledgable, and always attentive. This place is not inexpensive, but for the impeccable quality of food they are serving and the beautifully attentive staff and management, it shouldn't be. Every penny is well spent here. Pro tip: if you are feeling more budget conscious, check out their lovely happy hour which runs from 5:00pm to 6:30pm--it's fantastic and you can easily make a full meal (and then some) off of the various quality offerings on it. Soto most recently made my husband's birthday a wonderfully memorable one, and I couldn't recommend them more highly.
