This is definitely a restaurant you would go to for the tasting experience, not to fill your belly. The complex and masterful taste profiles of each dish are divine. My boyfriend and I got the hot rock Wygu, Walu Walu fish (so buttery), Gyutoro, edemame, spicy tuna roll, and the Hama Chili, and banana cake for dessert and that was the perfect amount to leave us both happy and full. We also got two cocktails each and it amounted to about $150 total but we left extremely satisfied and loved every single dish we tried. We can't wait to go back for happy hour in order to taste other dishes. Hats off to both chef and pastry chef, our dinner was exquisite!

We went for Mother’s Day dinner. We were booked for the outdoor dining. When we arrived it was cold and rainy. The restaurant was just opening for service. We asked if we could be seated inside and they said nothing was available so we only had the option for outdoors. They were not prepared and the heaters had not been turned on yet so the tent was very cold and drafty. Luckily the heaters warmed it up quickly, but half way through my meal apparently another table asked to have the heaters turned off who were sitting closer to them. I got very cold and was uncomfortable eating. The waiter was good and even comped a drink which was nice. He did quickly turn the heater back on when I asked. Maybe he knew we weren’t over thrilled and I was freezing which is hard to enjoy your meal like that. We did watch the tables around us getting served much faster which was also annoying. We went with the entrust menu for my husband and I. We did this at The Wolf’s Tailor recently and had a phenomenal meal. The entrust at Uchi in my option was not worth the money. The first citrusy dish was amazing. From that point everything else was ok. The Escobar was my least favorite and We did not finish it. We brought my 3 teenagers who enjoyed the waygu, chicken and short rib. They did not care for the short rib. Overall is was far from an amazing meal and the portions were very small, but the menu prices were big! The atmosphere in the tents were boring too. Wish I would have picked a different spot for Mother’s Day. We even stopped to pick my kids up food after we left there paying over $200 because they were still hungry. Way too many other places to come back again.

The restaurant was surprisingly empty. While the service wasn’t awful it was much slower than it has been on previous visits with a full restaurant. Our server appeared to be training someone so that was probably the reason.

The food, as always was fresh, clean, and delicious. The fiery yus were especially tasty that night and we have them every time we are there so the bartender was on point.

We brought a family member who hadn’t experienced Uchi before and she indicated she will definitely return and experiment with other menu items besides the chicken.

This restaurant has been on my list to try for a while now. I am a total foodie and really enjoy trying new places. Everyone has been raving about Uchi and I wanted to give it a shot to see if it lived up to the hype. We did the 10 course chefs tasting. While the food was good, it wasn’t outstanding. I can say that everything was creative and plated beautifully, however most of what we tried was just ok. The fish was very fresh, but sushi portions, and well, any other portions, really, are on the smaller side (as expected with fancier restaurants). Ambience was great and the design of the space definitely takes you into that modern Japanese vibe. My favorite dish was the desert, Fried Milk. If I do go back to this restaurant it will be for the desert. Very creative and the flavors were on point. My least favorite dish was actually the Wagu Beef...aged with a very strong flavor and a taste that I couldn’t get rid of...tasted off. In all my rating for this place falls right in the middle. Just ok. If I do go back, I will order intentionally and will forgo the tasting menu.

The food is phenomenal. It is the most expensive restaurant in Denver, be prepared for the price and enjoy a truly special meal. We strongly recommend the tasting menu to really enjoy the experience and to get out of what is likely a limited view of sushi and Japanese food. The omakase (6 or 10 course) tasting choice is well worth it! Lastly, all the mixed drinks we’ve had there have been amazing as well and they change regularly.
