Absolute perfection. We trusted our waitress with the selections, and it was just divine. I’m never disappointed at UCHI. Always the right move to make a reservation before 6:30 for HH, when happy hour is every day.

This was one of the best restaurant experiences that I’ve had. There was a group of 6 of us. Normally, I would expect slightly diminished quality of service for a larger group, especially coupled with the fact that it was a holiday weekend. Instead, we received incredible service.

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like appreciated guests. The front attendant was warm and friendly and directed us to the bar area while we waited for the rest of our group to arrive.

The bartender was very warm and friendly; offering suggestions based on our preferences. She was great about offering to have our tab moved to our table once available.

We were seated almost immediately. Kat was our primary server and she was nothing short of awesome. She beautifully walked the line between genuine friendliness and professionalism and gave wonderful suggestions for our table. My partner is vegetarian and was really worried that she would be a pain. Kat especially catered to her, which eased my partner’s anxieties immediately.

The rest of our table had the 10-course omekase - and not only was the food absolutely top notch (seriously - everything was delicious), but every single server that brought a dish out treated us as if we were their own table.

I enjoy fine dining frequently, but the quality of service AND food has set a new standard for me. I’m genuinely grateful to have had such a wonderful memory with my dearest friends in from out of state/country here at Uchi.

I made a reservation at 10pm instead of 7pm, and they were still able to accommodate me. The server listened to my likes and dislikes and made decisions accordingly. The food and drinks were amazing. One of the best sushi experiences I’ve had.

The food here is absolutely outstanding! With its reputation and everything that is written, this place does not disappoint. Every thing tastes amazing and the value is probably the best of any high end restaurant I’ve ever been to. The service is very professional.

My only minor complaint was that a lot of different people brought our food out and there was a lot of coming and going but everyone knows their stuff and is very professional. We were sitting under an AC vent which was not super fun with the cold air blowing and they moved us no problem.

Overall, this is a MUST if you’re visiting Austin. Go there!

We waited 75 minutes to be seated as the hostess, in her infinite wisdom, decided to seat three people at the only table outside that could accommodate our party of 7. The staff was very unapologetic, pointing to the disclaimer on the website that we might have to wait for a table. This is despite the fact that I had booked the reservation weeks prior. As we waited for our table, consuming 2 bottles of pricey Sancerre, the waitress said they would comp us a broccoli appetizer. Seriously, broccoli for a 75 minute wait? When the $600 bill showed, the broccoli was on the bill. Unbelievable. You fooled us once, Uchi, never again.

Every food item was phenomenal. The sake incredible. Our server, Tyler, was probably the best server we've ever had. He was polite, knowledgeable, attentive, speedy, and every interaction with him had us remarking on how pleasant he was. My friend said it was one of the best meals of her life.

This is the best sushi in Austin, maybe the best restaurant in general. The atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant are fantastic and the food is to die for.

For those making a reservation please know that (1) the kitchen is usually backed up and the meal can be quite long and (2) I've usually been seated 10 minutes after my reservation time. Well worth it.

I had heard great things about Uchi from a few colleagues, so was excited to get a reservation while I was in town. It was simply outstanding. We let our server pick our dishes and each choice was amazing. This is a special place.

The meal was incredible. Our waitress was incredible. We basically ordered everything she recommended. She knew the menu well. Did not let us over order. Overall I would come back in a heartbeat.

My only complaint was the place was a little loud. But not so loud that you could not hear each other.

We have been dining at Uchi for over 17 years but have never been during happy hour. We loved the smaller portions of some of our favorite menu items as well as the ability to try lots of new ones. The Hama chili, Brussels sprouts, romaine roll with Spanish anchovy and the walu walu were our favorites. The service was outstanding (thanks Rachel!) and the ambiance and energy of the restaurant never disappoints. Thanks again for helping us celebrate another special occasion, Uchi! Can’t wait to return.

I made a reservation on OpenTable for Saturday night for outdoor seating for 2 people (2 months in advance).

Checked in with the hostess and she wished my date 'Happy Birthday' as I had noted it in my reservation. Nice touch! We proceeded to have drinks at the bar. The bartender had a smile on her face and was helpful in recommending drinks. She made the process seamless with transferring the drinks to our reservation so I didn't have to close out my bar tab prior to being seated. The hostesses had a smile on their face and updated us on when our table would be available, as the outdoor seats are upon availability. Since it took slightly longer to get our table, there was a server walking around offering a cauliflower sample - didn't get the name, but it was delicious!

Once we got to our table, our server was Alexis. She was awesome! Very accommodating. She recommended a handful of dishes as it was our first time at Uchi. All of her recommendations were phenomenal. She even gave us a free dessert for my girlfriends birthday - the 'chocolate candy bar'. :)

Amazing food - highly recommend it! Seems like they have a variety of vegetarian items as well. Definitely worth the cost and experience.
*Note - I recommend outdoor seating - they had heaters. The inside did seem like it could get a little noisy.

The food is good, but it takes a very long time to have it in your table, even though a salmon sashimi, which took an hour.
There´s no need to wait for food more than expected.

We are visiting from out of town and wanted to try some of Austin’s best restaurants. We did the 10 course tasting menu as well as a tasting flight of sake. We were glad we were seated outside as we had more space and we did not have worry about the noice level. Both the good and service was excellent!
