Chef Tyson Cole, winner of the 2011 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Southwest--Thank you Uchi and Uchiko family and friends for your support!
Uchi showcases the culinary talents of executive chef and sushi master Tyson Cole, winner of the "best new chef in America 2005" by Food and Wine magazine. His exciting menu expands on the Japanese tradition with new flavors and influences. Uchi means "house," and like many sushi bars in Japan, Uchi is located in a refurbished old home. Its vibrant design adds a fresh dimension to the neighborhood and has been warmly received by Austin's diverse dining crowd.
Uchi accepts a very limited number of reservations and reserves the majority of the dining room for walk-in availability. Most seating is done on a first-come, first-serve basis. All parties must be complete before being seated.
Ask for Laura. She’s incredible!
Had a great time at Uchi, and the server was wonderful and knowledgeable.
Heather is amazing!
As always, a real pleasure to come here. Service and food are outstanding.
Amazing experience, as always!
Really enjoyable, would have loved a celebration for birthday and service is a little slow this time for food and drinks.
Never disappoints. The food, service, and ambiance are all outstanding.
Wait staff was helpful and just the right amount of attentive. Food was unique and delicious.
John our server was fantastic. Made the whole visit extra special. Food was amazing. A little pricey, but I'll be back (when I save up).
This was our fourth visit in 8 years. It gets better each time which amazes us!
Uchis is excellent. Best sushi ever! Impeccable service. Love going there. Sushi, Sashimi, sauces and ingredients are Simply delicious!
It was very good!
We took the 10 course and it was worth it!
Better than I remembered! Creative without going overboard and ruing the fish. Excellent staff.
overpriced for what it is. wouldn't call that omakase.
One of my favorite restaurants. Uchi never disappoints.
We had a fantastic dinner! The host team did an excellent job and we were even seated early. Our server was sweet and attentive and incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with menu selections. We’ll hopefully be back soon!
Great time! Amazing food and top notch service! Really the best service. Very quick and efficient. I loved the ambiance. Kinda loud but still very fun and intimate.
Food and service is absolutely amazing! We have celebrated our first and second anniversary at Uchi; the experience has only gotten better. We gladly make a drive from San Antonio, TX, for this incredible experience; tradition.
Thank you, Jody, for taking such great care of us two years in a row!!
Overall, it was the best sushi meal we had in the Austin area.
Uchi exceeded all our expectations. Friends had told us it was a MUST and boy were they right . Truly special dining -‘unforgettable!!!
Chef's Tasting was worth it. Great Birthday dinner.
The server was so sweet, the food was incredible and we even got a free dish! Such a special evening and Uchi made it even better.
The staff was amazing. Our server even gifted us her favorite dish because we were celebrating.
One of the most unique and best experiences for sushi dinner
I was holding a business dinner for a client, that I just met a few days prior. In which he decided on investment property in Austin sight-seen from Houston.in 5 days of wanting to take financial possession of property.. The courses came out in large inconsistent gaps of time, the sake I guess filled me up cause I got tired of waiting for another beautiful taste of food. teased me outta there with the sake having taken control at the point! dont think I made it but for about 6 courses. And didn't feel taken very well care of. even though I always tip 50% in those situations. cause we dont know if their really is any in control of the place. So I tipped the waitress in hopes she is the reason things were good. of if saving the kitchen 4 courses that i walked on. would be a tip in homage to the hard working BOH people from have to stay and wait for slow service to serve a 10 course meal.
Uchi has amazing options and very good quality sashimi and nigiri. I love taking my friends who have never been to try and be amazed. But this last time we had a server named Sam, who had to be new and was VERY inexperienced. Over the course of 2 hrs, she came to our table twice, never refilled our water bottle/container, and didn't ask us nigiri quantities therefore misunderstood and brought us more than ordered. She wasn't friendly and became a bit passive aggressive when we told her we had not ordered that many nigiri.
Anniversary! The sushi chef was so nice
Love love love Uchi! Omukase is unreal, so tasty and flavorful. The fish is so fresh, and service is exceptional. Fav sushi place in USA
Incredible and inventive takes on sushi. Wonderful service, excellent recommendations. Would definitely go again.
Uchi is always outstanding. No matter what they bring to the table, I know it is going to be delicious and unique. We always get the chefs tasting menu so that we get to try new things that we may not have ordered on our own. The servers are very knowledgeable and attentive and go out of their way to make sure you have a great experience. The only complaint I have about Uchi is that is can be very loud, to the point where you pretty much have to yell to the person across the table from you to have a conversation. The noise is a small price to pay though for the rest of the experience.
Beautiful restaurant with amazing food! We were treated very well.
Server could have been more patient with us as first time visitors.
Wonderful service. Amazing food.
Absolutely the best sushi you can get in Austin. Great for date nights and special occasions. Try the sake social menu for some great value apps and drinks.
AMAZING. We had a tasting menu chosen by our server and every course was insane. So delicious.
Amazing restaurant from start to finish! 5 stars
Noland was fantastic and very attentive! Kudos to him and the managers. He made our evening!
Truly a unique dining experience from start to finish!
