    My experience at the cocktail bar was spectacular! The bartender was knowledgeable on nigiri options as well as zero-proof drink options. The food quality was great.

    Uchi has the BEST sushi in Denver. It’s pricey but worth every penny. Definitely take myself atleast twice a year for the Omakase to treat myself. Exceptional.

    Came here for our anniversary and they sat us at a huge 6 person table. Asked is we could sit somewhere more intimate and got a response of if it would be a “problem” then he could talk to someone about it. There were multiple 2 person tables and we didn’t want to be problem so we awkwardly stayed.

    Everything tasted great except the salmon was a little fishy. Their sauces are incredible, but not when it's there to mask lesser-quality fish. This was only the case for the salmon, the rest of what we ordered was incredible. The service was also outstanding.

    We love coming to Uchi! Its one of our favorites spots in Denver. We visited on New Years and were disappointed in our service. We had ordered and got food quickly as it comes out coursed and when its ready. We did order a few rolls and from when we ordered and received them it was over an hour.Our waiter kept coming over asking to confirm what we ordered. We saw multiple other's around us receiving their orders. I wished he had transparency and just told us he forgot. The waiter ended up brining us our check before we received our rolls.. we felt super rushed towards the end. It was upsetting after spending a lot of money to be rushed out and no expiation given for why part of our meal took so long to receive. We finally got rolls and hour and a half after we ordered them and 40 mins after we received our last entree. We had already paid and were waiting for rest of dinner to arrive. Very disappointed and sad no apology or even acknowledgement was given.

    I hate writing this because I previously had such great experiences here. We went for my boyfriends birthday and had a 6:30 reservation where we immediately let them know we’d like to do the 10 course omakase. The food was incredible, but the service was terrible. It took forever to get our drinks, we had 2-3 courses come out pretty quickly followed by extremely long lulls. We never got the last round of drinks we ordered, and we didn’t conclude our dinner until 9:00 (almost 2.5 hours after we got there). When you’re paying that much for dinner, it just stings when the service isn’t great. Hopefully this was just a one-off experience.

    In general the food was fine. Some dishes were exceptional while others were just ok. When nearly everything gets paired with ponzu sauce things get dull. The service wasn't spectacular and felt rushed. They need to consider how their beverage menu aligns to their food offerings.We had our meal curated by the server and when I asked what white wine was recommended based on their food selections I was advised that they all do. Just indicates a learning opportunity.

    Everything was amazing as usual when we’ve come in, it was my girlfriends birthday and I had put it in the preferences for our reservation that we were celebrating her birthday and not one time was it acknowledged by our server or staff. Great experience as always, but was disappointed as we don’t go out to splurge that often and love going there.

    Service was a bit frantic. Staff needs to give patrons a better idea of how much food comes with the $300 tasting menu for two. It was a lot of food. Probably too much. Cudda spent less and been happy.

    I'll start off by saying the food and drinks were fantastic. Happy hour is a steal. The service, on the other hand, was not up to my expectations. We were greeted by our server right away and things were off to a great start. After ordering our first few dishes, we noticed he hadn’t come back to our table in a while. The manager came by and asked if our new server had introduced herself, that our original server had to leave because of a family emergency...at this point we hadn't been in touch with a server for over 15 minutes. When the new server came over to our table, she did not introduce herself. She just started gathering up our menus and I stopped her to say we were still looking / ordering. She told me "we like to keep the place 'cleaner' and keep the menus in the menu holder." She walked away after that. I did not know about the menu holder because no one mentioned it nor did I know she was our new server at this point. She finally came back and introduced herself. I ordered a second drink, and while still enjoying my first one (about a quarter glass left) she just took my original drink when the new one came out. After dining for an hour and fifteen minutes she was pushing dessert. Then dropped our check before we even started eating dessert. The entire experience felt rushed after our first 10 minutes even though we spent time waiting to order because we didn't have a server for x amount of time... Our dishes came out of order and the eel was cold, amusing because it was sitting for several minutes before someone ran it. It was a birthday celebration, mentioned in the reservation, but no one at the restaurant said anything. Why ask if it's a special occasion if it doesn't matter? We were really looking forward to this. The food was great but the service made the experience sub-par.

    We have been to Uchi 5 times. The first 2 times were magical, and I would tell people it was my favorite restaurant in Denver. The last two times were meh at best. The service has really gone downhill. The servers are not very attentive, and the kitchen/sushi staff look perpetually irritated. The first few times we were here everyone was smiling and enjoying their work. Drinks and food were slow to come. Quality of dishes has gone downhill where they used to be exceptional. The sushi staff was irritable and hard to get questions answered. This used to be the best place in town, but now I would look at some others. Ronin is very good, smaller, and a better experience.

    I was surprised by how slow the service was, but the servers were very hospitable and food was tasty. Karaage could've been crispier. Especially because it took over an hour to come out. However the space was really nice and I plan on coming back.
