Uptown Sushi Ratings and Reviews
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.
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 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 food is good but a bit over prices especially for lunch. We ordered the chirashi bowl and I requested Ponzu sauce. I never got it and when the waitress finally returned we all finished. I decided I should eat as it was apparent I was never going to get the sauce. If it were me I wouldn't have left a tip but someone else in our party was buying. I think you can get better value at other sushi restaurants.
Unfortunately the day we were there, they had a sewer or grease trap problem because the place stunk. Badly. They opened the front door when we complained, and it seemed to help, but you would think that someone may have thought to call a plumber to fix the problem before a guest commented. The sushi here is awesome, but the other odors that day were really bad.
