Great food, atmosphere, and, above all, awesome service. Outside tables ideal during Covid.

This is one of the most hyped restaurants in Austin, and I think it's a little overrated.

only complaint was the traffic noise but there isn't anything Uchi can do about that.

Worst experience ever. I have had multiply people recommend Uchi to me since I have moved here but it was not a great experience. The food was being rushed, I ordered the 9-course chef special but I ended up being served the 6-course chef special, and when I asked my server about it she asked me " Are you okay? Do you need more food?" in the most condescending manner ever. I do understand one of my friends was a little tipsy but no one came to tell us what was going on or why we're not being served the drinks we asked for. I am not upset that they didn't serve us alcohol but I am more upset at the fact that they let us sit there like sitting ducks being pushed to the side.

Uchi is so good and pretty reasonably priced for the quality of food. I love the Hot rock wagyu and anything with yellowtail. I am usually not much of a dessert person but any time I come to Uchi I have to get the chocolate candy bar. 10/10 so good

After having to wait 30 minutes after our scheduled reservation to be seated, we felt rushed in an atmosphere more like a diner that a place that we spent over $500 for dinner.

Uchi is one of THE BEST restaurants in Austin. The food is phenomenal, and the service is some of the best in the city. You must go to experience this gem for yourself!

Was a great time! My mom meeting my future mother in law!! The server on the other hand was not as energetic as we would have hoped her to be. She was very quick with us which is understandable but at the same time it was just a special occasion that was not ruined by her attitude. Love uchi. Always a great time!

Sitting outside on South Lamar can be noisy and even if you make a reservation it’s not always possible to choose seating location among empty table choices with the same # of seats, perplexing. Also, they don’t enforce masking when patrons roam away from their tables, disappointing. Thank goodness the food quality remains superb despite these inhospitable and unsafe management practices.

Great dining experience! Outstanding service from Rachael for our 1mo wedding anniversary! We loved that we could have our tiny puppy outside at the restaurant's now larger outdoor area! Stephanie was the best too giving us some stuff for our puppy to play with! All around amazing and the food quality lives up to all the hype STILL after all these years! LOVE LOVE LOVE UCHI & UCHIKO!

We had an excellent experience and the service was exceptional. It was only loud, because we sat outside, but they’ve done a very good job making the outside nice to accommodate current circumstances. Would definitely recommend Uchi for any occasion. Enjoy!

Anything that was cooked was over salted. Uchi has lost some of the magic that made it so special years ago. Sushi was good though.

We have always enjoyed Uchi but this time not so much. Due to Covid we chose to sit outside on a cool evening. They have heaters and all but ours were putting out good heat. By the time we realized it and they put in new propane we were done. We ordered several happy hour rolls and a few other small plates. I would say we only really liked one of them. We'll be back but it may be awhile.

We had the tasting menu and it was beyond worth it as we tried new dishes which were delicious. The staff were fantastic and were taking safety precautions with well-distanced diners, sanitization, mask-wearing etc.

Each dish was presented beautifully and was beyond fresh and amazing. We cannot wait to go back to try more!

Ambience was great dimmed and relaxed where you eat bite size dish as they come over an hour or longer. Appetizers and small dishes were good, but nigiris were exceptionally outstanding!!! Madai was my favorite. Nigiris were of good value too for how well it’s thought out (sauce & garnish match with fish’s flavor). I highly recommend for date / catch up with friend over a meal occasion where it’s easy to engage in conversation and pleasant surprise for each dish coming out and conversation around it!
