The staff was short handed so it took a long time to reorder drinks or ask for anything else. They had two people to fill your water so at least you always had water. The food as always was amazing.

Great service and the food was tasty. I think of this as a more adult place, but we brought our kids and everyone was kind and accommodating. Our kids enjoyed it.

The service was terrible. I watched as our sushi sat at the window for over 20 minutes while our server walked around aimlessly. No drink refills, didn't check in on us once. The bathrooms were filthy and the floors in the restaurant were as well.

The sushi was top quality: fresh, and delicious. We got their avocado miso soup and kobe beef hot rocks, both of which are now 'must-haves' for us. The menu is full of creative and diverse choices from rolls (we got tapas and bahama something or other rolls) to cooked entrees (we didn't get one this visit). I highly recommend this joint!

This place has turned into a real dump. We sat in a booth and the upholstery was torn in many locations with the stuffing coming out. How do you serve food in a place like this? The restrooms were also disgusting. We had the Kobe cubes, which were really good, but the two rolls we had were bad and not fresh. We could not get pass the upholstery seating and the lack of management and ownership that would serve food in this condition. How do you let your restaurant deteriorate to this condition? My advice is avoid Uptown Sushi at all cost. There are too many good and clean sushi bars in Houston. I am asking for a response to my review.

This is one of our go-to sushi restaurants in Houston. My husband and I will come for a quick lychee martini or sake and chef don tuna tartar, panko eggs and delicious sashimi. We even take our children who enjoy the spicy edamame and sushi rolls.

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!
