Truly great food and experience. Took my son / student at CU Boulder. Incredible! Japanese Sea Bream and Amberjack sashimi clear standouts. Hot Rock also phenomenal. Eddie at the bar was great!

I visited Uchi on 2 consecutive days for Happy Hour because I was astounded at the creativity of the menu and nearly perfect execution of each dish and wanted to share the experience with my family. Try everything. The foie gras nigiri was my favorite. When I raved to Keanu, our server, he brought another complimentary order. I was fortunate to be seated at the bar next to Uchi fans who enthusiastically shared their recommendations. I’m looking forward to trying dishes from the core menu and the tasting menu. And the space is beautiful. WOW.

Uchi exceeded my expectations!! From our server making wonderful suggestions to the food itself, we could not have been more impressed. We are long-time lovers of a typical sushi roll, and every dish we ordered was a better deconstructed version. What a delight to dine in a high-class restaurant and receive great service. Highly recommend a visit to Uchi.

Uchi is incredible. Knowledgeable waiters and the food is delicious. The only thing I would say is that it’s very loud in there and it’s quite pricy so only for once in awhile, but this is one of my new favorites

As good as Matsuhisa is, Uchi may even be better. Regardless, it's a great competition! Incredible meal. Incredible textures and flavors. Just glad somebody else was paying.

Omakase was out of this world! We let the server pick our 10 courses and that was a brilliant decision. She was very attentive and the courses were all amazing. We had a mix of sashimi, sushi, crudo, and a few hot dishes. All delicious.

Dining at the counter was such a fantastic experience. I made some new friends and staff was so knowledgeable and helpful. Asking questions didn’t feel like a burden, everyone was inspired to help. The leadership and organization at Uchi was visible and impressive. My server, Aimee, was fantastic. She was always available and never in the way.

I look forward to suggesting Uchi to folks and I can’t wait to get back to that counter!


If you’re on the fence about Uchi, I suggest you dive right in.

We loved the happy hour and so enjoyed the tastings, we booked a table for our second visit in two weeks. As I look over the core menu I don’t see anything I wouldn’t try. It all looks so interesting! The fish was absolutely the freshest and each bite delicious!!

We had the vegetarian omakase and it was delicious: a fun array of seasonal dishes, each of which had an interesting little twist. The highlight for us was the mapo tofu, served as a single deep-fried block with a shiitake ragu and spicy oil. Such a unique take on a classic dish. The service was impeccable - friendly but also very professional. They even made us some improvised mocktails when we said we didn't drink alcohol! Highly recommended.

OK if you're looking for the best sushi and Asian-fusion experience, look no further. I have lived here for over 40 years and am pretty particular about food. My son raved about this place so this was my first time at UCHI- OMG. Everything we ordered was outstanding!! And no soy sauce at the table, not needed! The short rib appetizer was only one big bite, but packed with flavor and also melted in your mouth. The Hamachi- incredible- the mushroom kinoko nabe was another huge winner. And who knew chicken thighs could be that good!! and even the edamame was no ordinary edamame.
And the way they served each dish with an explanation of what was in it, just everything was so great. I can't wait to go back but get ready for pricey; however, don't be chincy about it or you'll sell yourself short as they are not big portions- order everything lol. Save up your dollars but soooo worth it!!

This was hands-down, without a doubt one of the most incredible culinary experiences I’ve ever had. This could easily be the single greatest restaurant I’ve been to. Every individual dish we got could be the best dish on the menu at any other restaurant. Immediately became one of my all time favorites.

This was my third and best visit to Uchi. This is not to say the other visits weren’t great, but this one finally got me to write a review. Everything went very smoothly from being seated and greeted to coursing out our sporadic ordering. Our server was fantastic, he had the perfect amount of engagement and was very knowledgeable when asked any questions. He recommended the perfect wine to go with our entire meal and it did not disappoint. We ordered 6 courses to share between two of us.
Machi cure- a perfect balance of everything you want in your mouth at once. I wish there were a little more pear and almond, so each bite of yellowtail had all the components. Ordered 3 times now if that tells you anything.
Kosho crudo - I will only eat tuna like this from now on. Not a big tuna fan before but this has the perfect texture, mild flavor and big savory balance with the apple and chili. Yummmm.
Kinoko nabe- always the show stopper, this dish makes me want to cry. If you don’t like mushrooms, skip this part. If you do, please don’t skip this dish. The crispy rice and flavor of the mushrooms will blow you away.
Salmon belly and ocean trout sashimi- although there was absolutely nothing wrong with this, it was the least memorable of our courses. We probably won’t repeat.
Suzuki yaki- I think my husband might have cried a little when he tasted this. Branzino perfectly cooked with the best curry sauce you’ve ever eaten. We might have licked the bowl if no one was watching
Yuzu pavlova- a perfect dessert to finish the perfect dinner. Light, bright, soft, creamy, chewy, the sesame was outstanding. As a former pastry chef, its hard to impress me with dessert. Next time, I won’t share that dish with my husband, even on our anniversary.
We love Uchi and recommend it to anyone from out of town. Financially, it is only for special occasions for our budget but you won’t be sorry you spent a lot of money on this experience. Thanks for a great anniversary dinner Uchi!

We enjoyed the meal, but felt the service was a little pushy to talk us out of cheaper options on the menu and upsell items we weren’t really interested in. All together we enjoyed the food and the experience.
