Our waiter, Drew, was great. He said he was working for about a week.
Fantastic food as always. Fresh ingredients and unique flavor combinations. I loved the stuffed pork loin dinner special.
Always pleased with the "Uncle's" experience. Good food, good prices, highly recommended.
Our server was upbeat and friendly. The food was outstanding but the music was way too loud.
Just not the best experience there. Prices have gone up since my last visit, and food has not improved. My meal came with a baguette soaked in a heavy mayonnaise based sauce that had nothing to do with the rest of the dish (pulled pork). On top of subpar food for the price, our server neglected to mention that it was restaurant week, we were unaware until a couple behind us was told by a different server and by that time we had already ordered and received an appetizer. Our server told us repeatedly he was new, but kept using it as a mistake for not refilling our waters or asking if we needed drinks or anything else. Upon asking for the check he asked if anything was wrong and we told him we were disappointed he hadn’t mentioned restaurant week to us as we would have liked to order from that menu. He awkwardly laughed and said he hadn’t told any of his tables about it, and again mentioned being new. Not sure if he wasn’t properly trained or just wasn’t informed about restaurant week but it put a damper on the night. I understand being new but you shouldn’t need to say it repeatedly. I liked Uncles before but between tonight’s service and the climb in prices I don’t think I’ll be returning or recommending.
Aloha. Thank you for your feedback. We will definitely use your comments to improve our staff training. Just as an insight, the mayo that you referenced is a smoky malt vinegar aioli, an ode to Carolina style bbq pork, which is why we playfully name that dish "Karolina Kalua Pig." Our menu (Oct 2019) includes several new and improved menu items, but not one single price increase. Im sorry that you don't see the value in our menu. We're always available to talk at info@eatatuncles. Mahalo!
We honeymooned in Hawaii. This food took us back. My husband had the kahua pork and said it was exactly like what he had on the Big Island. The poke was perfection.
We always have a decent meal at Uncle's. Sometimes better than others but they are on repeat with us.
Restaurant and food were both cold. Service was slow even though most tables were empty. Came on the recommendation of a friend but see no reason to return. Made a fifty mile drive for a less than satisfying experience.
Food portions were small. Calamari was very little with a lot of other things. Tuna portion small but good. Over priced for amount of food.
Poke sampler was delicious and our server had great recommendations!
we went there for my Birthday dinner and I was not disappointed. I had the scallops and they were delicious. My husband had the rip eye steak and told me he loved it!
This the fourth year we come for New Years Eve dinner, and by far the best. The food was the best, service great, and the "show" can't be beat. Chef Che is brilliant. Will definitely be back.
Uncle's is our favorite restaurant in the DMV! We drive nearly an hour to have dinner as often as we can. Nothing is better than an order (or two) of Spam Musubi. Service is always great, and food is island elite! We are descendants of islanders and appreciate the nearly authentic food! Specials are always great as well. If you haven't been here, you are missing out!
Service and food were amazing. The Hawaiian nachos with shoyu chicken were incredible- the chicken was so tender! Hubby and I had the Cape May tuna, the seasoning and sauces were so tasty. Our daughter enjoyed her ahi tacos. Thanks for gelping to make our daughter's birthday dinner memorable 😊
The food is always consistently good. Especially the chicken and waffle dish. The reason for my 4 star versus 5 is the desert my son got the donuts were missing sugar. And the cream that it came with was also missing sugar.
We went out with our daughter to celebrate her 1st birthday (and our making it to a year!), and had a fantastic time! Our server (Mason) was extremely attentive and thoughtful with our little girl, and was super helpful and pleasant the entire time. Another great experience!
The salmon is always excellent and our waiter Vernon was exceptional.
My waiter, Mason, is friendly, patient and seemed knowledgeable about the menu. He provided solid reccomendations. I think the chef may have had an "off" night. The food was just ok. I would give the place a second chance but Im not excited to go back.
Great meal! The food variety is great and the service is awesome. Highly recommended.
I’ve been to Uncles many times but this past dinner experience was by far the best. The service was on top of their game! Many team players helping out. Great job! Bring the build your poke bowl as a dinner option! It’s my fav!
The service was incredibly slow.
Delicious food! Great service! Love going to dinner here!
The Uncles Mai Tai was yummy🙂 We enjoyed ourselves while there.
This is hands down one of my favorite places to eat. Everything here is fantastic. Loving the new poke bowl lunch options, completely customizable to your taste. Can't wait to come back!
Love the new lunch menu
The menu changed from two days prior when we visited. Some items were still offered but others not. That we wanted. Also, we ordered same items from days before and it was disappointing. Not sure if it was due to different chefs.
It was fabulous our previous visit.
Lighting was a bit low.
Service was great. Restaurant and bathrooms nice and clean. This is my second visit and I just don’t care for the food. Everything is too sweet. It’s rather pricey too.
Enjoyable, nice change from typical cuisine.
Amazing as always! Uncles never lets us down!! Now I have hooked my sister on their creme brulee. Delicious!
Food was okay.
First time trying Hawaiian food and it was amazing! Service was great too!
Awesome food! Great service!
I was looking for someplace different to take my wife and mother-in-law in Bel Air. The name intrigued me so I looked at the menu and was drawn by the interesting mix of ingredients in the dishes. When we arrived, there was ample parking and since it was 3 in the afternoon the restaurant was not crowded. The staff was very very welcoming and attentive. Our waitress was awesome. She answered my wife’s questions and the food we ordered arrived quickly. The meal was an awesome mix of flavors. All at a very reasonable price! I highly recommend this restaurant and would recommend the mango mojito as well.
Family get together
We were there on a Sunday evening, quiet enough without being empty. The food was excellent with lots of varieties of choices. Service was OK, a bit brusque.
Haley was a fantastic server. She was great to get along with and made the experience so amazing. I highly recommend people request her when dining here. She truly is a stellar server. 10/10 would recommend. Food was good too.
Great dinner. Food is served quickly and don't forget to ask for rolls!
I love Uncle's! The food is always outstanding. I've never had a bad meal! Service is always great too. I'll keep coming back!
Fun date night spot. Unique atmosphere and menu. Our meal was great! Enjoyed dinner with friends.
