THIS IS A MUST in Austin. Ask for Aidan - he was a phenomenal waiter. We did the 10 course Omakase and everything we ate was fantastic. The food was so unique and delicious. Every server gave us a detailed explanation of what we were eating and how to eat it. The whole experience was amazing. We would definitely go back!!

My boyfriend and I both said this was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The atmosphere was cozy and cool even with the rain. The hostess brought me a linen to sit on even after my booth seat was wiped down which I really appreciated. The entire staff was knowledgeable and provided great recommendations! Luis made the whole meal even better with his cheery attitude and of course the amazing dish he sent out as a gift. A brunette female also improved the experience with her descriptions of each dish before we ate and recommendations on the best way to eat them i.e. fish side on the tongue first then chew with the warm rice. The chef also sent out a gift so we were over the moon! The service was perfectly paced and not overly quick so we had plenty of time to enjoy each course. We will absolutely be back and can't wait!

Our servers inside and out were amazing!

However - I booked a reservation for 9:30 for my best friends birthday they did not have a table ready for us for about 45 mins to an hour later. In the mean time we sat outside in the table closest to the parking lot and they made up for it with rosé and edamame and later on a dessert. I’m happy they made up for it but it was quite underwhelming given the nature of the restaurant and how highly I had thought of it prior to this experience.

Food and the delivery of the food is always nearly perfect! We love the Sake Social smaller plates and trying many different items before heading to the standard menu. The desserts have always been great and this certainly also continues.

I am a sushi snob and have been to many of LA’s best sushi restaurants. Uchi was one of the best sushi experiences of my life. They add sauces and ingredients to super fresh nigiri that enhances the fish and creates a symphony of flavors. The staff was also friendly and specific in their detailing about each piece of sushi. A wonderful experience and meal!

I have been to this Austin location pre-COVID-19 and everything has always been outstanding in every way. This week it seemed like there were a lot of new or very overwhelmed staff that were barely keeping up with the reservations. Service was extremely slow. I have always loved that the staff was incredibly knowledgeable and helped guide you through your meal in the past. On this visit they were really just looking for you to order from the menu and had little else to offer. Somewhat disappointed in the overall experience but would certainly give them another try.

Amazing vegan food options! What a blast. There were so many new adventurous treats so delicately balanced. The temperatures, the textures, the flavors were on point. I was sad the reservations are so far in the future but this was worth the wait. If you are vegan I recommend you make a date night here asap.

Came to Uchi on a Wednesday night for my birthday dinner. As i had reserved the last slot during an already busy time, i felt very lucky. Out of the gate it's evident Uchi prides itself on attention to detail and customer satisfaction. Sitting outdoors, every table received its own heat lamp which, given the oddly cold temperature that night, was very welcome.

Overall, service was very quick in getting cocktails and courses out. Sam, who tended to my table, was informative and very congenial. I refrained from making any mention of my birthday until later in the night and Sam was quick to provide a complementary glass of champagne for a small toast. In addition, she recommended a delicious short rib nigiri.

As with all hai hospitality establishments, the thing that brings me back is the quality of service and friendliness of the staff. Amazing food notwithstanding, i always feel welcome and taken care of.

Thank you Uchi and Sam for making my birthday one to remember!

It’s good get the hot rock that wagyu beef was superb 10/10 will go back and blow some money again. The patio seating has heaters outside for when it’s cold so even though it was 55° out I didn’t have to layer up. The waiter was super friendly answered any questions and gave us amazing suggestions!

I had heard how delicious and fun this place was, so was looking forward to trying it. We did the omakase plus some apps, and I was disappointed in the overall experience. Our waiter offered very little in the way of service. Multiple times we had food dropped off with no mention of what it was or how it was prepared. He was terrible, even asking us if we wanted to just skip the last two courses and leave early!? What??? To her credit, the woman assisting him was on point, keeping water filled and clearing our spent dishes.

Food arrival was not consistent, we got 3 of our courses all within one minute. Would not go back.

This place is amazing . My hubby never eats sushi or sashimi and he ate it ALL. It was raining when we got there and we were very sad that we may have to reschedule reservation but the staff had a cancellation and offered us the table . In order to make it up they also gave us a dessert in the house in addition to the one we ordered . Made us feel So special !their suggestions are on point and the entire experience was unforgettable . Thank you Shireen and Anna for the great service .

Our waitress Anna made our dining experience very special. We had the omakase for 2. There was a course that 1 of us doesn't like therefore she found an awesome substitute for that item. Everybody happy!

They have a small but really nice patio area. Food was outstanding! We ordered “the tastings” (which I highly recommend if you can afford) so they ask for preferences and then assemble a small taste of several things to share with the table. Not cheap, but a great experience.
