We are proud to announce...

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!

Uchiko, translated as "child of Uchi" from Japanese, is the next restaurant venture for renowned executive chef and sushi master Tyson Cole. Located in central Austin, this second location of Cole’s highly-praised Uchi presents the same excellence and energetic atmosphere of the original with some noteworthy additions. Uchiko will feature a new menu with Uchi’s same style of innovative, fresh cuisine, a main dining room that accepts reservations throughout the evening and an eat-in bar/café area.

Always wonderful food but had a really terrible server. My ask for a wind recommendation was “well is really depends on what you like” and she left it at that. My wine glass sat empty for a long time a d was going to order another with dessert but she never came back and brought the bill instead. Kinda the same with food recs - really no help and normally I would have ordered way more. The food was great of course but the service is just not what I expect from Uchiko.

Brandon’s service was amazing. We never felt rushed and he had a lot of patience walking us through the menu on our first visit. Food was spectacular and loved the atmosphere. Perfect for date night. Even though your seating is close, the noise level helped drown out surrounding conversations. We will be back!

Only disappointment was we had a reservation but waited 30 minutes to be seated. However, they comped us our first drinks, which was the right thing to do. Will definitely go back

Service was terrible, the waitress did not ask if we had been then before or asked if we had any questions about the menu. Once we ordered it took almost an hour to get two sushi rolls. We had said we were celebrating a birthday and they did not give us a complementary dessert or anything. Food was good but experience was terrible.

We went with the Omakase. It was great. I think it was planned for 10 courses, but we actually got 13 (a couple for free since it was our anniversary). We also had a sake pairing that was great. Waiter was very knowledgeable. The only complaint is the courses were served a little too quickly. We were still working on the previous course when they'd bring the new one. And these are small courses, so the serving was really rapid fire.

Uchiko is an amazing outing. Servers Marco, Alejandro & Tim is whom we always sit with, these guys are remarkable. I highly recommend a great sushi dinner in ones of these gentleman’s sections. Hands down best sushi I’ve had, over nobu Malibu, his sister restaurant in Denver and Many other highly rates spots in Houston.

Awful service. Had a reservation, arrived early, and yet did not receive any of our ordered food for 45 mins. Ruined a special occasion so we left without eating a bite. The point of sushi is to bring them out in small portions sequentially. Restaurant 101 - keep food in front of your customer. I expected much better from such a highly rated and priced restaurant.

Uchiko's food, service, and ambiance are stellar. It's not simply sushi, it's really outstanding freshness and inventive flavor combinations, and combined with the attentive staff and warm atmosphere, it's really the best overall experience in Austin, in my opinion. Typically we've asked for Compton to serve us because we just love her, but tonight we were served by Madrid who was also phenomenal and fun - everyone is a joy to be around and again it's very easy to get way too excited about the food. Like embarrassingly excited. But I'm admitting it here publicly so everyone knows just how great this place is. We try to come for birthdays and anniversaries and any time we have company in town. In this case we went all out for my birthday and like always, Uchiko does not disappoint. Thank you!

The food lives up to the hype and price. Sadly, the service and overall ambiance did not. I had a conference and was excited to take clients to one of the most highly rated restaurant in Austin. I get the casual atmosphere but it’s too casual....not a place I would consider for a special occasion. And when you are ordering a ten course omasake and you get the cheap Asian wooden chopsticks that you get in to go Chinese restaurants, really? No menu for clients to see what the dishes are...the staff tell us upon serving, but in a very noisy restaurant, it’s hard to comprehend. Our waitress was very kind, but sometimes she was not the one who brought out the dish. Basically food was amazing, very creative and not one bad dish. But definitely minus a few stars for service and ambiance. I would never take clients here again, but I would take my friends for a casual night out for great food.

Absolutely love the Social Sake Hour at Uchiko. One of the best values and a great way to taste a lot of different things on the menu. We generally like to order at least one of everything from the happy hour menu, then re-load on the things we liked best. Awesome experience every single time.
