Wow, wow, wow! I hi was a fantastic experience. My vegetarian coworker and I were in town for a conference, and looking for a good compromise meal, and we really found it.

Upon entering, Uchi was a bit intimidating, very trendy and young vibe. We were seated promptly. The menu came and we were a bit more intimidated, what were these menu items? The words meant nothing to me and so therefore didn’t sound good. Then our server rescued us. Her recommendations were spot on. Some highlights were the Brussel sprouts, the uchi salad, and dayboat scallop.

Could not recommend more!

The service was extremely slow and the restaurant was only about 45-50% full. After we ordered, we were told they ran out of two of the items but the server didn’t make any recommendations or offer to bring something in their place. The check was the fastest thing we received. The food that we did get was good.

From the minute we walked in the door, our dining experience was remarkable. Our server, Brian, was fabulous. Every person that came to the table to deliver a dish was knowledgeable and friendly. The wine was delicious. The quality and freshness of the food surpassed my expectations and the variety and presentation of the offerings was stunning. I could not possibly recommend this establishment more. Exquisite. A phenomenal dining experience!

Our family loves to go to Uchi for all special occasions. The food is the best in the DFW metroplex. We have a favorite server named Stephanie who once again helped us to have an amazing dining experience.

Uchi is the BEST place in Dallas for Japanese cuisine. The ambience is beautiful, the service is incredible, the experience is bar-none. You will taste small dishes, with creative presentation and vibrant flavors. Our favorite, pictures, was the salmon, compressed thin sliced apples, capers and créme fraiche. I took an executive chef here for his birthday and he was blown away. Highly recommend for special occasion, between the two of us, we ordered a little bit of everything - started with 5 pieces of sashimi, the scallop was amazing - a couple cold dishes, a couple hot dishes and one of the specials, a couple cocktails and spent $150. We are downstairs in the restaurant, there is a casual option upstairs with great atmosphere too! Highly recommend!!

Among the best eclectic Japanese restaurants in Dallas. Always turns out deliciously fresh and inventive dishes. The sashimi has that just caught freshness and tempura dishes are light and crisp and flavorful. Service is spot on and attentive. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for with a good as it gets meal.

The food flavor was amazing but the portions have gotten super small. You pay a lot of money and don't really get much. Overall the experience was great, but I wish they would consider making their portions a little larger.

We mostly like this restaurant, and for now, it is remaining in our general rotation for sushi. But Uchi has some problems that they need to address.

The food is good, and some items are in fact excellent. The cocktails are creative, ambience is upscale, and crowd is energetic.

But after dining here numerous times now, I have to say that I have three complaints:

(1) The waiters have a tendency to be overly immersive. They tend to feel the need to prove to the table how great their personalities are. That part about Uchi is quite amateur.

(2) The waiters and kitchen seem to pay little or no attention to the timing of when your courses are brought to the table. We were still working on our first course while they proceeded to stack up several other courses around our table of two people. Unacceptable. This is typical for Uchi, so you must ask your waiter to course out your dishes one at a time, or otherwise into batches that suit you. Rest assured they won’t ask your preference if you’re not proactive about it. That is also quite amateur.

(3) Inexplicably, the waiters tend to downplay the Chef’s omakase here and instead they push some sort of “waiter’s omakase.” I know the chef, Tyson Cole, is a reputed one, so I’m down for his selections. I don’t know the waiter from a stranger on the street, so why would I trust his or her judgement? The strength of this restaurant is Tyson, not the waiters, so this is simply a missed opportunity by the management and evidence of hubris by the waitstaff.

I ultimately left before eating. I had a reservation for one. When I arrived at my early time, there were many tables open, plus several seats at sushi bar. I was asked if I’d sit at the bar since I was alone. I said ok. The hostess gave me a nice seat on the corner of the bar. I was satisfied. Then a man came and said I’d have to move to a single seat between two large men. It was too uncomfortable, so I left. Don’t bother going to uchi if you are a single woman. They won’t value you as a customer.

I took my mom here for her birthday & everything about dinner exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere was relaxed but efficient, and the service was above & beyond. I would even say that it was the best meal I've ever eaten! The dessert was 10/10 too. It was a pricey meal, but surprisingly worth every penny. Wow to the chef & the waiters. I can't wait to go back.

This might be the best dining experience we have had in Dallas! We did the server omakase and everything was amazing! Our excellent server, Stephanie, asked us a few questions and then started bringing one amazing dish after another. The short rib nigiri, tempura shrimp, foie gras nigiri, and fried milk dessert all stood out, but nothing was short of amazing. Great experience and would definitely return.

Uchi is a must try in Dallas, and if you, try the Foie gras sushi. It's the best thing I've ever had. I would suggest a group of at least 4 and try the Omakase, it's a 10-16 course meal.

Coming from NYC, Uchi wins for best sushi in America. Been dreaming about this fish I tried here over a year ago. By just describing my waitress Charlotte knew exactly what I was talking about and was able to lead me in the right direction. I Sat at the sushi bar and Chef Jamie was incredible - I reordered 3 of the things I tried, and was given 2 tastes of other dishes for free!

Attempts at creativity fall flat as just off. Wait staff guidance is remarkable plentiful but irrelevant and unhelpful.
