    The waitress didn’t bother writing down our order while taking it and also didn’t repeat the order to confirm with us so of course some dishes didn’t come out. She then later had to ask us what else we were waiting on and what dishes. While we love the food here, the service is one of the reasons that caused an unpleasant experience that we’ll unfortunately have to bring our business to other establishments.

    Always an amazing experience at Uchi! Each dish had its own amazingly unique flavor. Service was impeccable, as always. Great team service and everyone explains the dish as it arrives to make sure you taste everything. Quality of food, service and ambiance is so high that it’s my favorite restaurant to visit in Houston!

    I went to Uchi for my husbands birthday around 7:30. We did the somakase which was about $150/pp. The food was phenomenal and a vibe was very trendy. It was super loud and packed though, but that makes sense given the time we went. My only real complaint is with the somakase the items weren't coming out evenly spaced. At one point we would have one thing and then at another 5 things would come at once, it was a bit overwhelming. Multiple different people were bringing us food and just dropping off the plates without explaining. Which normally would be fine, but with the somakase we didn't pick any of ourfood, the waitress did. We didn't know what things were, and we hadn't been there before. The food was amazing but the experience and service was a bit disappointing.

    Great food and service as always. Nora was a particularly warm and attentive server - she coursed every dish perfectly, let us know in advance about anything the kitchen was running low on, and noticed my napkin fall on the floor from across the room and brought me a new one within seconds of me picking it up off the floor. It’s the small things that ultimately make an experience. Can’t wait to be back!

    Excellent meal, as always! Service was less than expected and lower than our many dining experiences at Uchi. Ordered a $100+ bottle of wine at bar to drink and take to table. Very nice waitress had clearly not been trained and obliterated the cap and followed with a dreadful cork expulsion. Then, did not offer any tasting but rather poured over half the bottle into two glasses! Clearly untrained, for which I blame management. Once seated, service was acceptable but slower than usual and no input or discussion, simply order taken and delivered. Have had better experiences and hope this was a one-time blip.

    I had conversed with our server about sake and how I loved Junmai gingo sake and found one to order. When we received the bill the sake was almost three times the cost of what I ordered. Turns out there is a Junmai Daigingo with the same brand and that is what was served. I protested it but we went ahead and paid for it, as we didn't want the server to be docked for it. However, in such a restaurant I am shocked that the server didn't confirm which one was ordered, especially since we had a good bit of conversation as to exactly which type of sake I preferred. Very disappointing. I will not be back.

    Been going to Uchi for many years. I can tell you things have changed. Uchiko their sister restaurant in the Galleria is way better. Manager never made rounds. Needed to ask to be reseated bc we were placed on top of the other tables (which was granted). Used to be a great date space. Not any more in my opinion. Still makes zero sense that they don’t have good drink options either. Uchiko for us only moving forward.

    Birthday celebration with the omasake. Experience was absolutely horrific. Never ever again. Our service didn’t explain any dishes, very forgetful, and not attentive. I’m not saying just serve us, and us only, but it could’ve been a lot better. Kata Robata from now on
