Our server noticed our unfamiliarity with Japanese cuisine and brilliantly created a “server’s tasting” for us she made selections based on a couple of preference questions — it was the best meal of our lives, hands down. We will come back her anytime we’re in the city.

Uchiko has wonderful food and there are a more than a few things we love: the makimono, brussels sprouts, fried chicken and milk and cereal desert are just a few. Great dinner but a little loud for our anniversary-- seated right in the middle of the resturant, at a tiny two top, no mention of our special event.

Outstanding restaurant! Get the 10-course Chef's tasting! Sat at the counter...love being able to talk to the sushi chefs. Dave talked us through the whole menu and any questions we had. Only downside, we were originally sat in the main dining area, the noise level there is very high...so happy we were able to move to the counter where the noise level decreased significantly and brighter.

We had an amazing time at Uchiko thanks to our server Bryan. We asked him to bring us the food he recommended and he coursed it perfectly. We had the perfect amount to eat and loved everything he chose! It was such a great experience!

It was our first time visiting and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was a wonderfully memorable experience. We tried the 5 course meal and loved it. Our server Mo had a great energy, explained the menu to us and was just was an overall joy.

The service is always spotty. It takes too long to get your dishes and drinks. It’s a two hour meal every time I go there. I have been to Japanese restaurants all around the world and unless it’s a omakaze menu it never takes this long. Even though the food is delicious I will not go back. This is my third time dining there and it’s always the same.

You can never go wrong with an evening at Uchiko! Everything from the simplest avocado nigiri has been taken up a notch with flavor profiles that always impress. For first timers (and seasoned vets alike), I recommend arriving before 6:30 for Saki Social Hour and getting a "Yahtzee" of the whole menu! Perfect sharing sizes that won't break the bank when you split the bill. Some cooked, some raw, some veggie, some meat - and dessert! It's a fantastic way to get a glimpse at their creative flavors and dishes. I promise you'll leave full!

Took my wife here for her Birthday on a Sunday evening. Booked reservations 10+ days in advance and Sushi Bar seat were still all that was available. Sitting at the Sushi Bar, you're directly in front of the food preppers and they actually take your order with just a drink server walking around.

This worked out perfect for us since it was our first time dining here, and we don't generally eat sushi often. Gabe at the Sushi Bar took care of us. He was extremely knowledgeable on the menu and answering all of our questions.

Food was absolutely phenomenal, tuna literally melted in my mouth, drinks were fantastic, and though they couldn't accomodate a personalized dessert request for my wife, they treated us to a side dish as a gift and the Milk and Cereal desert wouldn't have lasted long enough to take a picture with it anyways! Factastic experience, can't wait to return!

Uchiko is usually a favorite but they were off tonight. The 10 course omakase was surprisingly disappointing. Service was slow which is forgivable but we were only excited by maybe two of the ten courses. Bummer.

Everything was great from the service to the food to the atmosphere! Had such a wonderful time celebrating friends birthdays and engagement. The food came out quickly and was served with very professional and fun staff. We ended up sharing the food family style and enjoyed it that way the most! Highly recommend trying a little bit of everything!

Staff was amazing. Waitress brought us her five favorite items instead of the chef's tasting menu. We enjoyed each dish. The tempura battered pumpkin was one of our favorites. The milk and cereal dessert was delicious.

I thought using OpenTable would be an effective and efficient way to book a table. It was my girlfriend's birthday and, on a separate occasion, we had such a great experience with a particular server at the bar, that we requested him again. We did not get him. We did not get any special treatment, or even a happy birthday from any of the servers or staff, despite having requested it. We were seated at a table that was definitely not 6 feet away from guests on either side. The food came out fast. The server was in a hurry though, and did the very bare minimum with regards to serving us and talking with us. Disappointed is the correct word.

The food is good, but no one from Uchiko actually reads the notes on OpenTable.

Best food experience in Austin, period.

As great as the food is, the customer service is always 12 out of 5 stars. Even the valet guy was painfully polite when we lost track of time and were there a bit after close. He had to come in and find us, but was beyond kind and refused a tip.
