    I have ate at the Uchi in Austin and Dallas and have always left beyond impressed and satisfied. I came to this one for my first sushi night since being pregnant plus my sister was visiting from Connecticut so I wanted her to have a great meal. We decided to do the 10 course tasting which is super expensive but we wanted to experience all the best of the menu. Also, not having a paper menu made the options seem daunting and not easy to decide on/digest. Not having a full bar sucked. We wanted martinis but couldn’t get them. The wine was very overpriced. $18 a glass cab but you can get the bottle for $25 at the store. The food was not coursed well with multiple courses coming out at once. It felt very rushed. For what we were paying we would expect it to be less rushed and more high end. I wasn’t happy with the overall experience. Wish we went to a different restaurant. The food was really good. But I wish we asked what was on the course because the wagu hot rock was very fatty and the final course being foi gras and king crab were highly overrated nor would we have ordered it. Also with all the great flavors earlier - leaving with those two flavors as the final was really disappointing and missed opportunity to have something more memorable.

    From the wait staff to the food, our experience was perfection! I am not a vegetarian, but heard the chef made a killer vegetarian tasting menu. So, I thought, why not try something new? It was phenomenal. My husbands tasting menu was insanely awesome as well. Beef, fish- all delicious. And we had no idea what was coming until it arrived. It was great to experience both. Go have fun and explore the flavors! You won’t be disappointed.

    The food is great and service is delight. One thing that is not perfect is that servers introduced courses toooo fast. For someone is not Japanese but really into Japanese food, this wouldn’t be an easy journey to learn about those fishes. We tried 10-course chief tasting menu and added a few other nigiri and roll. It was a family style Omakase with two people for about $450. Nigiris are one-bite size. Small but efficient in a way that if you need to eat and chat a lot with friends at the same time. Sushi in general is tasty but some are heavily flavored (flavored over fish itself). I guess it’s not the traditional Japanese way but I do like the innovative attempt. Santa Barbara uni is fresh and sweet. Foie gras is crispy outside and tender warm inside. Overall, I would say Uchi is worth trying at this price level and I would recommend it to my friends if they come to Houston for fun.

    Food, service (Santos and Dusty are outstanding in their roles) and vibe are really special at Uche. At Santos’s suggestion, we tried a couple new things (octopus and a mackerel nigiri) that were delicious. Look forward to coming back soon.

    We're recent transplants to the Houston area from the Northeast and have really struggled to find high quality sushi. Search over. Uchi is fantastic. We did the Omikase and the selections were excellent. Service top notch as well. Like, really really good service. It was my wife's birthday and they even surprised us with a couple great extras. We will be back.

    The restaurant has nice ambiance. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. I dislike they don’t have paper menus. The pandemic is over with go back to giving a menu not everyone wants to be on there phone during dinner. If their menu was simple I might not mind but the layout and some wording on the menus is not straightforward and trying to sit and scroll on your phone to figure it out isn’t the easiest. We sat at the sushi bar and had a good experience with the chef. He did a good job of helping us try items we might like. I love sushi and the food was okay at best. I don’t like they don’t bring out soy/wasabi/ginger. We asked for it and we’re told they don’t because everything comes to the table “already dressed” FYI for the business not everyone want to dress their food the same way. Our waiter started out good but during the middle of the dinner disappeared. This place doesn’t have a full bar and the wine they serve is beyond overpriced. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant for sushi there is far better for the price in Houston.

    We have lived in Houston for 6 years and this was our first time dining at Uchi - we have been missing out! Hands down one of the very best dining experiences in all of Houston. Wife and I both did the 10 course Omakase tasting. Everything was wonderful - shashimi, nigiri, cooked entrees, dessert - all awesome. Do yourself a favor and try if you have not already done so.

    Dining at Uchi on the omakase menu is like going to a concert for your taste buds. There’s no point in saying “I should recreate this at home” - it’s simply an experience on a higher level. It feels magical. Thank you for making the magic happen!

    Went here for an anniversary. Best part about the whole night was the service. I would give service 6 stars if I could. Storm was our server and he explained things so nicely. We did the signature tasting, which was six dishes and we added on an appetizer in the beginning. The price for all that was reasonable and what you would expect from a high end sushi restaurant. With the appetizer, we ended up full, which is good. The food was amazing. Would highly recommend for a date night

    The food made it worth it, but it took FOREVER to get us seated and it was hard to find a place to wait. Our table was super tight and we could barely move between the booth. Service started out a little cold and then it got way better. The food was phenomenal though, sushi rice was perfect temp and great fish selection.
