A perfect date spot - amazing food and amazing service. We did a trust fall in that we asked our server to adapt the chefs menu and have *zero* regrets. Jeremy (our server) went above and beyond making sure we had an excellent experience. I will be craving both the nigiri and the desserts for a long, long time.

Uichiko of course is the spinoff of well known Sushi house Uichi on the other side of the city. We arrived late, and were seated at a table. After ordering, we found out that three key items which we came for were sold out for the night. We then compromised on a few other sushi dishes and hot dishes. Overall the quality was not better than I could get from a three star sushi bar on the east side of the Bay Area. Sato on the other side of town was much better.

Ok to good place. The size of the Niguiris is ridiculous . Been there 6 times but believe this would be my last No reasonable relationship for what one pays to what is served. Better off going to Nobu / Morimoto or Makoto! If you still decide to go for the 10 course Omakase. It is ok not exceptional, but it is a better value!

The food, as always, is phenomenal. Particularly the 72-hour wagyu beef sashimi might be the best thing I’ve ever eaten. It never disappoints.

Before going to Uchiko I had been to Uchi so I thought I had a good idea of what the experience would be like. I told our server this when I arrived and asked if she could describe the difference between the restaurants which she replied, "well, basically just the menu items." No other explanations regarding flavor differences or inspiration. When I go to a restaurant where I know I'll spend roughly $100 per person including drinks, I want the wait staff to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, and consultative. I was with two friends so we ordered a few things but kept asking for recommendations and if we were ordering enough. All our waitress could say was that she recommended the ham and cheese sushi roll... The food was taking a pretty long time to come out so when we were finally able to flag her down, she didn't know what had already come or not. We decide to just get the check. Overall this was not a great experience. We had a few sashimi, a roll, the brussels sprouts and edamame. Honestly, nothing blew my mind for the price and lack of service. I'll be sticking to Uchi from now on.

Went to Uchiko for sake social hour and had an amazing time. A great filling meal with unique sushi dishes as well as a few hot savory bites. Plus with social hour, it was much less than it felt like it should be.

Awesome as always! Only flaw was slightly too salty tempura on the Nasu/Eggplant. Other than that, just incredible!!!

Would love to see the Sweet Corn Dessert back on the menu. Easily my all time favorite dessert dish ever!!!

Superior quality. The sake cocktails could be improved but were good. Just limited selection. Also we had the Omokase and one dish was frankly, not good. (King Crab dish on 12/27/19. Everything else was exceptional. Very expensive though for two as our bill with tip was close to $300. Friendly, attentive staff. Definitely a special occasion place I would recommend. Just bring a fat wallet.

Simply amazing. Every bite was spectacular, every fish paired with a drizzle of this or a paper thin slice of that. And our waiter, Lindsey, knew all about everything and made some great recommendations. She is even a certified Sake expert. My favorite was the life affirming hama chili, my wife loved a thai branzino, and my daughter loved the tempura roll. Thanks for a truly wonderful dining experience.

Disappointed with Nigiri - Rice was dry and fish did not taste fresh. The nigiri cuts of fish was too small for the price

My friends have been raving about Uchiko for as long as I can remember. My husband and I took my mom here for her birthday. We had drinks while we waited for our table (we arrived early). Or reservation was for 7:30pm on a Wednesday. The chardonnay was lovely. Upon being seated we were immediately handed menus, given warm towels, and our water glasses were filled. For reference, this is the type of restaurant where someone fills your water back to the top after you take a sip. The menu was difficult for me to understand because I am accustomed to sushi menus with basic wording. Not only was this menu more specific, it had foods I hadn’t even heard of. Luckily, this was irrelevant because our waiter, Julia, explained everything to us. We ended up deciding on getting the Special, a 5 course meal that is customized to your event, likes, mood, etc. Every single dish that came out was better than the last. We had nigiri (amazing), pork belly nigiri (incredible), Japanese fried chicken (life changing), and other dishes that I wish I could explain but can not. It wasn’t just dinner, it was a religious experience. Julia was so attentive, funny, and kind. AND patient. For dessert, we ordered 2 items. She brought out 3, because one dessert was in the house for my mom’s birthday. Julia customized our dessert for us. I so rarely leave reviews, but I feel like it’s my duty to let people know how special Uchiko is. Thank you to everyone who worked there that night, my mom loved her birthday dinner.

Uchiko is always amazing and so consistent with every dish. Every time we go there it's perfection. Love the staff, love the food, love the atmosphere, it's the best dining experience I've ever had (every single time).
