Arrived on time for the reservation but had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Service was very slow but food was great.

Service was pretty bad. Got some of our meal items before our appetizer entrees that we orders, which probably would have even came if we hadn’t asked for it. Restaurant wasn’t even super busy and considering that we came early (6:45 pm) for a Saturday night, they were already out of some items. Used to be a good place, now I have better choices in this city considering he cost of the food.

Delicious sushi as always! Truffle tuna is superb, comes on a chilled plate to maintain the tuna’s perfect texture. L&J is another great app., love the jalapeño! Fun spot with great service:)

Although we made reservations, we were seated in the bar area. The rest of the place was empty. Poor service (later realized it was the bartender waiting on us). Ordered lobster bisque, but my entree arrived without soup due to waiter forgetting. Lobster and shrimp rolls were under cooked. Fought and tasted more like chicken salad. Entree was not impressive. NYE dinner was a bust. Don’t bother going here.

Good place to go if you know sushi. Food was very good. Ambience OK, slightly annoying music, just generic pop re-mixes. Worst thing was the service. Waiter was brusque, a bit snooty, and not willing to help much with the order, even though we specifically said we didn't know sushi and could use some help.

Always enjoy Uptown sushi, however, new items would be fun and the decor
is looking tired and dated. The seating has tears in all the booth cushions.
It could be refreshed and revamped and a few new items would be fun.

Way to high prices for average sushi. Much better fare at Soma and other places. Aside from that, I thought I was on a former nightclub owing to the design of the place. Very odd to us with a very long way off light beige draperies, banquette seating, etc. Wouldn't go there again.

I took my boyfriend out for his birthday and he absolutely loves sushi. This was only our second time here and it's still outstanding, the food the service, and the environment. We give a big thanks to the complimentary dessert as well. Its one of our most go to sushi spots for sure!

The yellowtail signature nigiri was excellent. The 7 1/2 roll was rich and delicious, and the Tata roll was refreshing so they were great together as nice counterpoints. My only complaint would be the incredibly lackluster wine list.

The ambiance and the service were great, but I found the roll menu to be short and not that diversified as expected.
As starters we tried the Teriyaki Rib Eye and the Lobster and Shrimp Roll. The Rib Eye was delicious and I do recommend, on the other hand the Roll wasn't crunch as it should, he dough was kind of saggy.
We ordered the Uka Roll, taste was good (not spectacular) but , comparing with others sushi restaurants, very expensive for the size and taste presented.

This place is really dim, so be prepared to go almost blind when you come in on a sunny day. It takes a few minutes for your eyes to adjust, but even after it adjusts, the lighting isn't the best.

The food is good, but I won't say that it is my favorite sushi place in town. It seems fresh, but it's not the most creative, nor is the presentation good. Our waiter was very attentive, though, and he made good recommendations. I'd go back, mainly because it's across the freeway from my work.

It has been a while since we ate here but as before, the food and service never disappoint. The one dish that was expensive was the kobe hot rock at $19. It was only 6 bite size, thin slices of beef - although, it was delicious. The presentation was interesting but its not worth putting up with the smoke for the price - I won't order that again. But everything tasted very good.

After being seated by the hostess, it was quite a good while before our waitress came to our table. We only saw our waitress a total of 3 times the entire meal which includes 1) initial order; 2) delivery of food; 3) delivery of check (after the water guy chased her down).

Food and atmosphere was great but the service needs improvement.

The reviews of this place were right, the service left much to be desired. The atmosphere is very appealing, and may be more fun for a group dinner but was not great for an anniversary dinner. We love sushi, but we did not have one memorable dish.
