    I normally don’t write reviews but this experience was so disappointing I feel that the Uchi Denver management team and potential diners should know about what we encountered last night. My husband and I are HUGE fans of Chef Tyson Cole and have been to Uchi and Uchiko Austin and Uchi Dallas countless times. We were so excited to bring our friends to Uchi Denver and could not be more shocked by how bad this dining experience was in comparison. For a Saturday night the service was terrible. Multiple items were forgotten and we had to remind our server several times for things we were waiting on. I come from the service industry and understand that sometimes you may be short staffed, but this was simply lack of care and attention. Even worse — our food was boarderline inedible. The fish/shellfish while great quality, was so over salted and seasoned on a number of dishes that it was off putting. Rather than allowing the quality ingredients to shine, each dish was overpowered by heavy handed and unessessary seasoning. Each cold vegetable dish we ordered had temperature control issues and some vegetables were even frozen. There was also a lack of nuance in tried and true dishes we’ve come to love at other Uchi outposts and muddy flavors in many of the specials we ordered. We spent close to $400 on a meal that was difficult to get through and could not wait to leave. I truly hope that this was just an off night, and if not that Hai Hospitality will work to bring this outpost up to the incredible standard you wil find at all other Uchi restaurants.

    We went for my birthday and celebrated in style! Food was excellent. The Hama chili was by far our favorite with the wild scallop crudo coming in second. The Hot Rock was my husband’s least favorite and I thought the Walu Walu (another friend’s favorite from a different night) was a little stringy and maybe over cooked. They brought out a candle with our desserts (Fried Milk and Warm Banana Cake), which were both wonderful.

    We had the Omakase ten Course experience. It was wonderful and I enjoyed it very much. My partner however did not enjoy it as much. It is certainly refined and if you aren't a foodie I wouldn't recommend . It was also very pricey. Great way to try alot of the food on the menu and all portions are small even if you order directly from the menu so be prepared so spend some money for a great experience . Overall we enjoyed and would be back for some items on the a la cart menu

    The dishes were good, but very (very) small. It was pretty insanely expensive for the amount of food. I’m a fan of small plates, but this was taken to the extreme.

    This was our second time dining at Uchi. We decided to get the Chef’s Tasting and it was such an incredible experience. The variety of the 10 courses was great and each dish had remarkable flavor. The cocktails were also amazing. We can’t wait to come back

    My son and I enjoyed an excellent meal at Uchi. The menu is rather overwhelming so we asked our server, Nina, to choose our selections. Every plate was beautifully presented and explained by those bringing it to our table. The sushi is so fresh and the flavors are amazing. I can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough for a special meal. They also offer several happy hour options at reasonable prices.

    Always LOVE the food here at Uchi and usually the service is just as good. However, last night, our waitress seemed to just forget about us. I usually spend a decent amount of money here, but the waitress checked on us just once, so I was only able to order half of the food I normally do. I was also unable to find her for more drinks as well as water refills. I had to ask the server that was in the section next to us because she was actually checking on her tables. When she came back the second time to check on us, she just brought the check - did not ask if we wanted anything else. I would have spent a lot more at your restaurant had our server cared at all.

    Everything was amazing! Erin was so lovely when she sat us, and when she found out it was my boyfriend’s birthday she took us to a nice booth. Maggie, our server, gave us the absolute best service. Her recommendations were all outstanding and she made our dinner so fun. She made us feel so special the entire evening. It was such an enjoyable experience from start to finish, we’ll definitely be back!

    Been a long time fan of Uchi, and the Denver one did not disappoint. Dish after dish was delicious, service was impeccable (you can tell they truly love their food!), and the overall vibe is somehow both relaxed and sophisticated. We'll be back and keep visiting wherever they open new Uchi iterations.
