    Ukiyo is a fantastic Japanese fusion restaurant. I love the food and drink offerings, and the staff is all very friendly and dedicated to their craft. It's a blast to see into the open kitchen that the chefs and cooks work together so smoothly to create the amazing cuisine.

    Our recent dining experience at Ukiya left much to be desired. Despite having made a Resy reservation, the service was disappointingly slow. Upon arrival, my party was asked to wait for over 15 minutes because the table we were supposed to be seated at still had diners finishing their meal, despite there being two empty tables available throughout our wait. When we inquired about being seated at one of the empty tables, there was some hesitation from the staff, but we were eventually accommodated. Once seated, the slow service continued. After informing our waiter that we needed a moment to decide on our food selections, they failed to return for 20 minutes. This lack of attentiveness greatly detracted from the overall dining experience and left us feeling frustrated and overlooked. While the food at Ukiya was good and may have been enjoyable, the sluggish service overshadowed any positive aspects of our visit. Improvement in promptness and attentiveness to customers' needs is necessary to enhance the overall dining experience.

    This was probably my 4th time dining @ Ukiyo’s, the food is excellent. However this latest experience, as soon as we walked in (had reservations) the hostess stated due to overbooking our dining was limited to 1.5 hours! Once seated our server told us the restaurant was sold out of 4 items (they had been open 1 hour)? This restaurant is not on the cheaper side and because of the time limit, we felt rushed. I will definitely return because every business has a bad day. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt.

    Ukiyo is a great addition to the neighborhood, offering creative and delicious plates for sharing, as well as entrees. We are forever grateful that they brought decent sushi to town! The cocktail list is solid, and the service is well-informed and welcoming, if at times on the slower side when busy. Make a reservation on weekends, or grab a seat at the bar. It is a cozy but upscale vibe worth the visit.

    The service and food were great. The music was so loud we all had to talk a couple of degrees higher to hear one another. That effort took away from the overall enjoyment of dining.

    The Service and ambiance were completely incredible but the only part that really wasn't up to my expectation was the style in which the food was served. We chose the fried rice and ramen and both seemed underwhelming. The rice seemed extra oily and the ramen didnt come through as authentic.

    I would recommend going with a group and maybe best for special occasions unless you have a lot of extra money to burn. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I tried several dishes and nothing really did it for me. Spent a little over $50, I left feeling like eating at my favorite hibachi place would have been a better option and could have saved a lot.

    My wife and I are locals and visited for the first time. From the edamame gyozas to the Pork belly Kimchi Ramen, to the sushi rolls, this place was fantastic! All the ingredients were fresh and the flavors/presentations were second to none. Generous portions made for great leftovers. And our server, Haley, was so engaging and knowledgeable about the entire menu. She really made the experience fun!! We are sold on Ukiyo and will definitely be going back!!

    We went for a date night and loved it! This is a restaurant for any type of night out. There is a large high top table in the center where a large group of ladies were. We sat at a table for two. There is also a bar. We will be back! The drinks (Tokyo cosmo, rose and sake) were all delish. I was surprised there was no Pinot Noir on the wine list. There were 3 red all on the heavier side, which I would not enjoy with sushi. The chicken ramen was some of the best wr have ever had! Friendly staff. They were so nice! Also I called earlier in the day to switch our reservations and they got back to me before they opened and it was no problem! Just a 10 all around!

    The look of the restaurant was the best part! The space was very stylish and comfortable, however drinks were very overpriced. My partner order a 15$ glass of wine which came to the table looking way less than a standard 5 oz pour. The food all came out at odd times, for example we ordered three appetizers for the table all at the same time. One of them came by itself even though we had ordered two of the same, then 10 minutes later another came, then finally the second order of the first one that had arrived came to the table after our entrees started coming. All the entrees were delivered to the table at different random times. Our server was knowledgeable but hard to get a hold of, we were not checked on very often and were trying to get her attention through much of the meal. Some of the entrees were enjoyable, such as the ramen, the fried rice dish and the Unagi Don. The bao buns and sushi were also tasty. However the chicken karaage and pork katsu were literally just fried meat on a plate over raw cabbage. Very unimaginative, untasty, incomplete and underwhelming. Over-all, the restaurant in general is a good idea and something Savannah could use, but the execution needs to really improve in order to stay viable. For the price, I wouldn't consider a second visit unless they stepped things up a notch.

    Katsu and mushrooms were delicious together as an app. Imo, the sushi was not on par with the rest of the menu and left me wishing I had ordered ramen, etc. Drinks were appropriately flavored and strong. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable

    This restaurant had a very trendy vibe. Almost like a lounge type atmosphere they played house/trance music and the decor was very modern. I personally loved the vibe (which is why I picked it). The trendy vibe really didn’t transfer over well to the food. It was almost too modern and adventurous. The plating was absolutely gorgeous; very aesthetically pleasing. But I think they tried too hard to make the food Nuevo Japanese. There were classic Japanese dishes on the menu but with a modern (and unnecessary twist). That being said, the food was very good but I would have preferred a more classic offering.

    The food was absolutely amazing! However, I cannot say the same for the service. Our server was overwhelmed, there were many new employees, and apparently some call outs. Our group was second to get seated, three or four more groups came in after us, however, they received their food well before we did. We also were told our food would come out all at the same time, that did not happen, sporadic plates here and there. Needless to say, I do not need to visit this restaurant again for sometime. Quite unfortunate, considering how good the food is.
    UkiyoResponded on December 12, 2023
    Krharden, Sorry that your experience was not up to the standard we normally provide. We had a tough week with a number of our staff call out with the flu last week and culminated over the weekend with 6 off and we had to rely on staff from other locations which were not familiar with the restaurant. We are sorry that the service was lacking and hope that you are able to give us another opportunity to prove to you what we can do. Kind regards Anthony Debreceny

    Very nice restaurant with Asian inspired decor. Food was excellent. Started with Waygu Beef Negamaki and chilled peanut noodles. Both were great. Followed that up with the short ribs. Very tasty and easily fell off the bone. Finished with a lobster magma roo. Interesting presentation, but excellent flavor.
