Unfortunately, this was not the positive experience from a year ago when we had a very knowledgeable waiter and an excellent tasting menu. This time the waitress provided little guidance and no information about the dishes unless we asked, so we ordered to the best of our ability. The others helping her were much better and more personable, but it was too late by the time we saw them. Food was good with a few highlights and we may return, but only if they fix their service and noise level.

Our reservation was late (9:30pm) because we were unable to find anything earlier even weeks in advance. Although we arrived at 9:25, we were seated at 9:55pm, unacceptable for a reservation made in advance. They sent us to sit in the bar area although it was clear we had a teenager in our group and bar sitting wasn’t appropriate. We were offered nothing while we waited other than some rolls which we had to eat with our hands. The noise level was extreme, perhaps because of the many customers who filled up on alcohol while waiting to be seated.

This was an extremely disappointing experience for a top restaurant. I hope they train their waitstaff better and fix the broken reservation system.

Our dinner here was my son's high school graduation present. He's a foodie and has been dreaming of visiting Uchi for years. The look on his face as he tried each mouth-watering course of his Omakase? Worth every penny.

Food was great as usual. Table wasn’t ready when we arrived at our reservation time. They claimed they were cleaning the table, but there was people sitting at it as we saw them when we arrived. Not sure why they had to lie to us? If you expect a wait with a reservation, put more time in between the reservations. I don’t want to wait for my table at a high end restaurant.

The vegan tasting menu was spectacular and the service superb. Kat handled our six-person table amazingly. She was really knowledgeable and didn’t skip a beat with a table of vegans and non-vegans all with different tasting preferences. Can’t wait to go back.

Like much in Austin, this place was good, but overrated, especially for the price. If you're a sucker/hipster with money to burn, this is the place for you.

Very expensive. But remarkable food. Once every few years splurge kind of place. Some Extraordinary dishes and some very good ones. Only one or two small dishes were just okay.

We always eat at Uchi (or Uchiko) when we return to Austin for a visit. Never disappoints. The daily nigiri/sashimi selection is always extensive and way beyond the typical - and is always expertly prepared. We were delighted to see that the the 'Sake Hour' sake selections were expanded beyond the nigori selection. (It may have been this way for a while, but due to the pandemic, it had been a couple of years since we'd been.)

Server was excellent, all the staff who touched our table were very knowledgeable about the menu. Food, it speaks for itself. There isn't anything new or unfamiliar I can about the product hitting the guests mouth.

Each one of our none dishes was outstanding; can handle even rank them as the flavors were so varied and fresh. Service was great too. We came during social hour so sakes were discounted; walked away having spent much less than we expected. Probably one of my favorite restaurant meals in Austin in the past 2 years.

Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. Recommend the Japanese 77 from their cocktail menu, hamachi chili, umi mash, maguro goat and the kanpanchi yaki.

Our waitress detracted from our experience. Brusque, forgot one of our orders, and speaks soooo fast neither of us could understand her well. She seemed completely disinterested in hospitality. On the other hand, the food runners and dish clearers were delightful, warm, and friendly while still professional and efficient. We would have much preferred any one of them to be our waiter. Sorry to say, we are moving Uchi off our restaurant rotation for now.

Incredible food and drinks. Only downside was that it was packed and so it was louder than I would have expected it to be. It also was a bit darker inside as if I was at a bar instead of a restaurant. Regardless, these two things are super minor and probably don’t matter to most, so if you want some amazing food and service, you should definitely drop by.
