    Food is always great. Waitress was extremely nice and sweet. However, our reservation was at 8:30, did not get seated until close to 8:50. It is usually loud in there but that’s just the ambiance of the place. Will return.

    We love Uchi and Uchiko . I hope they can maintain their quality even under the pressure of high volume. Lately, when we have visited in busy periods, we have noticed variations in the level of detail and seasoning .

    We don't appreciate getting a nasty message about losing our table if we show up more than 15 min late. You always make us wait 20-30 minutes for.our table when we have a reservation. It is very disrespectful

    Definitely not the traditional sushi experience. While each play we received was very unique, it was difficult to navigate the menu. We sat at the sushi bar, and had a hard time understanding the chef that was assigned to us, because of the noise level.  The other servers helped us navigate to make selections… The team, overall, was amazing. Very well oiled machine. They all helped make dinner experience. Very smooth.

    Our server was excellent and the food was as well. While there were a couple of dishes that were less successful to us. That is probably a personal preference matter and not a reflection on Uchiko. The restaurant is expensive but we knew that going in.

    Went during happy hour on a Tuesday for my husband’s birthday. We had an amazing meal! Service was fabulous, so attentive and fast. We received a complimentary dish for his birthday, and our server was so enthusiastic about the menu and having customers try new things he also brought us a mushroom dish on him. So lovely! Opted not to get the omakase and rather everything to our liking which proved to be the best move! Everything we had was fabulous. Will return.

    My husband picked Uchiko for his birthday dinner. The food and service were amazing. Both of us loved the koviche especially. We try to order different items each time we go to this great restaurant because the menu is so unique. But we will probably have to order the koviche again.

    Our main server was outstanding. He knew the menu, make great recommendations, make sure that our tasting menu experience with spot on. The problem is  there was so much confusion about the orders as one of our party did not order the tasting menu. When plates were delivered, it was never clear whether the food was part of the tasting menu or not. Ultimately we received other tables orders, did not receive all the food we ordered, and it was incredibly slow. In the end we were begging for the check because we have been there two hours. And while the food is excellent, it was so discombobulated I hesitate to return. I felt terrible for our main server who always trying to fix and apologize for others mistakes.

    This is the second time that we are seated in the same table and for the second Time we couldn’t enjoyed our dinner because the table behind were people so loud, scramming! We asked to be re-seated. While there were several tables available the waitress told he couldn’t… the service was poorly managed afterwards (messy sequence and timing very poor). Terrible experience… certainly our last time there

    Uchiko in Houston stands out as a culinary gem, offering an unparalleled sushi experience that easily claims the title of the best in the city. The seafood is not only impeccably fresh but also showcases a level of quality that sets it apart. Their Nigiri’s and Sashimi’s, in particular, takes sushi craftsmanship to new heights, ensuring each piece is a delectable work of art. What sets Uchiko apart is not just the extraordinary sushi but also the staff’s commitment to excellence. Their proactive approach, always inquiring about seasonal offerings and off-menu items, reflects a dedication to providing a truly curated and unique dining experience. The combination of exquisite flavors, masterful presentation, and an attentive staff makes Uchiko a must-visit for sushi aficionados seeking the epitome of culinary perfection in Houston.

    We had the tasting menu and even though it was a little pricey it was still very good. The server we had was amazing and was understanding about any allergies or things we did not like. The restaurant was quiet which was very nice. The seats in the restaurant were comfortable. Everything in all was very good but it was a bit dim in the restaurant.

    Everything o.k. Until dessert. I asked for a dessert. It was not available anymore. Instead of letting me know they changed it for banana foster which I hated. I let them know I don’t like banana. They still charged me for it in my bill. They gave me another dessert I did not like either. I told them if the one I like it is not available then dismiss. I did not like paying for something I did not asked for.

    I can’t say enough about Dani and the rest of the crew at Uchiko. It was my second time to do the Somakase and she remembered my “must haves” and my “must avoids” from a month ago. Best experience and meal I have ever had. I’ll be back next month.
