    Sat us in the back room, not main dining room. It was freezing. I asked if we could move tables and was told no (strange since they moved the table next to us). Asked if they could adjust the temp. Not sure if they actually did. Had to eat dinner with my coat on. . .

    Really beautiful meal tonight. Our server was fantastic, and we chose the Chef’s tasting menu. Every dish was full of flavor, well timed, and nicely presented. This is a great spot for a date or special occasion.

    This was our daughter’s restaurant choice before she went back to her campus in upstate rural NY. We love the consistency in food, service and the general vibe of the restaurant. We felt comfortable to enjoy our usual favorite items and to try new things. The general feeling is that we are eating elevated and elegant food served by hospitable staff who work well together.

    Underwhelmed overall. Service was slow - and it took 45 minutes to get our first bit of food. Some of our bites were delicious and some over salty. I won’t be returning.

    Food was absolutely delicious. I was a little annoyed that the second we paid our $800 bill we were told “you can finish your drink in the bar area”. Basically asking us to leave which was a bit rude, especially since there was MAYBE one party waiting to be seated. Even the valet guys were rushing us to give our tickets while we were standing outside visiting despite there not a single car waiting to be parked.

    Loved the experience but feel we were taken advantage of and the waiter ordered way too many things and delivered a bill for 4 people of over 900 without the wine. Be careful of this. Food and service were really great just was too expensive!

    New Years Eve dinner was quite enjoyable. It was a solid Uchi/Uchiko dinner. Some items differ from Uchi, but the quality and flavors truly shined. Very good job.

    I’m never disappointed when I dine at Uchiko. Delicious food, fantastic drinks, and we always get a special gift from the waiter which is usually a deliciously curated appetizer. Perfect for a date night or girls night out

    Best Sushi in Houston. Specially, omakase style. However is hard to get the right seating option despite making reservation. Staff is not flexible and you cannot ask for different seating even when the restaurant just opened and it is empty. Andrew the sushi chef taking care of us was exceptional as always. I met him in Uchi and now he is in this location. We will have to pour sparkling when we ran out of it since waiter would not be there. Quality is superb but still an special ocassion type of venue (expensive)
