Sushi

Incredible omakase experience sitting at the sushi bar. Our sushi chef quickly picked up on what we liked and also helped us experiment with new things! Pricey but very worth it.

Really great sushi! Best in Denver, in my opinion. 5280 gave it a so-so review recently, but I strongly disagree. I highly recommend that Sushi lovers try this place.

Let me start by staying that I typically love Uchi and have left multiple 5 star reviews on other occasions. In fact, it’s been THE favorite for me and my girlfriend for some time now. So you can probably imagine how excited we were to visit for her birthday. Unfortunately, this time it was not the experience we have come to expect. After being seated, it took more than 10 full minutes for a server to get to us and unfortunately that fairly represents the quality of the service throughout the meal. I was upset to be spending $200 on a meal where I received a wrong order twice as well as subpar customer service. Definitely not the Uchi I had come to love.

In Denver I feel you’re divided by Sushiden, who provides consistent amazing fare and authentic dishes, and now Uchi. I have never wanted to try an Omakase more than Uchi’s. My SO and I wandered across their happy hour fare as well as their nabes, ham and eggs roll, Hokkaido hotate, ikura, and cocktails. I ate until I couldn’t eat anymore and spent significantly less than expected for and astounding tasteful narrative on Japanese food. I can’t wait to return and let the chef lead me down his of culinary journey 🌸

The food is inventive fresh and fantastic not like a regular sushi restaurant from the sashimi to the rolls they are creative and taste amazing! Their HH is worth a go. The service is wonderful and every server knows so much about the dish and tells you the way to eat it so you fully appreciate the dish.

Came here as a going away dinner and a birthday dinner combined. So much to say but all in all the food was fantastic, the service was amazing and super friendly, and the drinks were the perfect strength and delicious. The bill was high since we got FOUR desserts, but the experience was so worth it. 10/10!
Note: I also came here for the soft opening and had a great experience even though they didn’t have their liquor license yet and I wasn’t able to get a drink.

I’ve been to Uchi And Uchiko in Austin various times, and was excited to try the Uchi in Denver. The food in the Denver location isn’t as good. It was also extremely loud, so loud you couldn’t hear the server explain the menu. It is still very good sushi, but not nearly as good as their locations in Austin.

Food was absolutely incredible. Our waitress however could not have been more put off by having to serve a larger party of 8 people for a business meal. Upon requesting that we each place our own orders separately rather than ordering as a group or better yet, “trusting her” to order for us, her body language and tone made it evident that we were massively inconveniencing her. On top of that, what should have taken maybe 15 minutes to serve up some of the most basic sushi items on their menu took nearly an hour. Between the really poor service from our waitress and the amount of time it took to get even the most basic menu items to our table, the growing consensus among our business team was that the price and crowded atmosphere was not worth a return trip. Which is unfortunate because the food once again was incredible.

My main critique is the sushi rice. It was too soft and gummy. Improve that and Uchi will be golden (texture should be closer to “al dente”)
