Great atmosphere and inspired dishes! Loved the fried brussels sprouts surprisingly well. Ask the sushi chefs for recommendations. We loved everything he suggested. The Fried Milk dessert is something that everyone talks about, but I feel it's a little hyped up.

All of the fusion dishes were excellent! One of my favorites was "Machi Cure", which is their take on finger food. The smoked yellowtail blended perfectly with the asian pear, all on top of a yuca chip. Food is incredible and service is great, overall an experiece like no other in Houston.

Been here twice and I've done their version of a tasting menu both times. Definitely the way to go! Food is amazing! Everything from amazing sushi to really unique fusion dishes.

Uchi is definitely a top restaurant in Houston, and if you know anything about the food scene, that's saying something. Obviously it's a little on the expensive side, but I'd pay twice the price for what they give you. The first few times I went to the Austin locations (Uchi and Uchiko), and the Houston location lives up to the same standard. The first time I went I got the tasting menu, and if you can handle leaving with a much lighter wallet, I'd recommend it. If you're one of those people that says "I don't like sushi," and that stops you from going, you don't deserve to be there in the first place. They have much more than sushi, and some of the best foods there are cooked (although personally I am partial to the raws). But if you don't go, more for me. Tyson Cole is da bomb. Things to know: -Order the brussels sprouts. They are awesome. And I don't really like brussels sprouts. I wish they'd replace movie popcorn with these. -I always get one piece of single, raw fish. You can be adventurous or not. Tip: jellyfish was kind of weird (but still good). -Get dessert. It's incredibly unique. Fried milk is most popular, but some of the specials have been crazy. Think: tobacco cream, olive gelato (not together). I wouldn't say save room. Just stuff your face. -GO FOR HAPPY HOUR. Should I repeat that? I won't. But seriously if you can make yourself hungry at 5:00, it's totally worth it. Get there ten minutes early to get in line. It's one of the best happy hours I've ever been to. Oh, and they have it every day of the week (5-6:30). Environment? Great. Service? Spectacular. Food? Duh. Get at this place.

I heard great things about Uchi, but unfortunately I was left disappointed. I'm seeing in these reviews that people are particularly disappointed with the chef's sampler and I'm not an exception. There is nothing special about the food here. The flavors do not stand out and while they clearly use high quality ingredients, recipes are built in such a convoluted manner that you end up having delicate flavors masked by stronger foods. I can't speak for all of the food here but definitely avoid the overpriced signature tastings.

Wow, what a disappointment! Like most people, We heard how fantastic this restaurants is via word of mouth or several written publications. We were expecting a long wait and a pricey meal. Both of those expectations were met. However, we were also expecting amazing food and a nice atmosphere. Neither of those expectations were met. The interior is small and lacks character. That could be excused if the food didn't follow suit. Being avid sushi connoisseurs, we opted for the 11 course chefs choice tasting menu. Things started off promising with some unique plates and flavor combinations. However, the meal progressively got worse, as the dishes became trite and everything had far too much sea salt. By the time we got to the end, we were both sick of the food, not overly full, and very disappointed. With a $250 price tag, I expect perfection-not overly salted tapas with little creativity and flavor. The only saving grace was the service, which was superb.

Uchi is incredible, and it is definitely worth making a reservation far in advance. The few times that I have been there, I have given up on the menu and just told the server what I typically like for sushi. Suddenly, delicious plates start arriving on the table and each is more appealing than the last. You absolutely cannot miss out on the Peanut Butter Semifreddo, which is, without a doubt, my favorite dessert in all of Houston.
