I was fighting with my partner while having dinner there I felt awful for he and my server and everyone but of course everyone was accommodating and the service was great anyway. We didn’t really eat as much as we’d liked to have especially missing the jasmine cream we never got to but we’ll be back for it when we return v soon.

This place is the absolute best. Their food is Heavenly as well as their service is impeccable. Their daily specials are so unique and delicious as well as their standard menu is amazing. If you've never been here before it is an absolute must. I wish I could give them more than five stars.

Uchi is arguably the best sushi spot in Denver. Not only is their fish incredibly fresh, but they pair the most interesting and innovative of flavors while still paying homage to some Japanese classics. The service is always outstanding, they go above and beyond to make sure you feel comfortable and well cared for. Its always a magical night at Uchi.

We hosted our four adult children at this restaurant this past week. The food was outstanding, as we had heard it would be, and it did not disappoint. We especially appreciated the attitude of every person we encountered there - a real "Nordstrom" type experience. You certainly don't get that often in a restaurant in Denver, and especially not one that is in such demand and enjoying such popularity. We drove down from Boulder and enjoyed the change in scenery and the great vibe of the Rino district. We had a great experience and can see why this place is such a hit.

Smaller shareable plates. Quality fish, a sushi restaurant that discourages the use of soy sauce to preserve the dishes intended and natural flavors.

After a less than stellar beginning, we had a fabulous dining experience. We had a reservation, but our table wasn't ready when we arrived. We had to wait about 25 minutes to be seated, then about 15 minutes before out waitress arrived to take our drink order. The food started arriving shortly after we placed our order and everything flowed well after that. the food was truly incredible - unique, interesting flavors and combinations. The best sushi we've ever had.

We've always been a Sushi/Izakaya Den fans and thought they were the best sushi in Denver, but I must say that Uchi blew us away in all aspects! Uchi is not a traditional sushi house, but more of an Japanese fusion with amazing, unique dishes that are far superb to any traditional sushi we've ever had.

The chef is absolutely incredible and can't wait to go back! And she is gluten free, so it was great to find that they could accommodate so many dishes to be GF! Kudos, keep up the great work!!!

We were in town for our friend’s birthday. We were very disappointed with the quality of the fish and portion sizes overall. The best thing we ordered was the cauliflower... that’s sad for a highly rated and expensive sushi place.

If other places have amazing food we need a better word for the quality at Uchi. We got the 10 course chef sampler and not a single thing was less than outstanding. The scallop, snow crab, and pork belly fishes stood out but i haven’t had better dishes anywhere in a long time. The service matches the food. Britnee was our server and she was incredible. The restaurant was slammed but she was knowledgeable, patient, informative, friendly, and even comped a dish that wasn’t on the sampler but that I really wanted to try. She suggested the chocolate popcorn for dessert which would have been my last choice but ended up being as good as the rest so if you are lucky enough to get her, listen to her. We’re already making another reservation at our new favorite spot
