the sashimi’s was the star. Kingfish and Spanish bass I think it was were fantastic. The scallops very amazing. Tuna tataki was the outlier today, just not as delicious as usual. Cocktails were killer.

Outstanding, classy, unique and yummy food - we had the wagyu beef dumplings, sea breem sashimi, shaved crispy brussel sprouts, lobster nigiri rolls, and tuna with foi gras sashimi.

The dirty martinis were delicious and generous.

Eating outside, socially distanced made us feel sage in our first outdoor eating experience. Loved the ambiance of being outside.

My boyfriend and I dined to celebrate my birthday this evening. It was our first time here and our first venture to a restaurant since the shut down, but we had heard great things. We were, honestly, blown away. It was a beautiful night on the patio and seats were spaced comfortably apart from other guests. Our server was so sweet and helpful. I wish I had asked her name. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and guided us to choose several sashimi dishes that were incredible. In fact, every staff member we encountered was friendly and hospitable. Everything we ate was delicious. My boyfriend and I are both restaurant industry professionals and the dinner service we received was everything we would aspire to produce to our own guests. We can’t wait to return and try more menu items.

Love the ambitious food and modern concepts. But too often the execution was lacking. Also, dishes did not have a strong foundation in the technical aspects of good sushi. Rice texture, temperature, seaweed wraps, highlighting of fish were weak. To be fair, Tai and Hotate dishes were fabulous. Tuna & Foie Gras ratio and texture was wrong maybe the Tuna should have been tartare, Hamachi Duet was also unfortunately a let down. Ultimately, not a great value proposition, too expensive for an uneven experience.

Had an excellent dining experience with Uni. The food as always was creative and innovative with very fresh ingredients and the tables were well distanced to mitigate covid risk and the servers were appropriately masked and aware of good health protocols. Thanks you to everyone at the restaurant for a very nice dining experience

Food & drinks were AMAZING. we got tuna sashimi, ramen cacio e pepe, octopus, brussel sprouts and one maki between 2 people. it actually ended up being too much food but not by much. Everything was fresh, delicious and not too heavy. our server was great, very attentive and ambiance was great. BTW we sat oustide due to covid and ambiance was still great, not too loud. only complaint is it is pricey but worth it :)

Uni was the perfect place to go for a first date, since everything is tapas style its great for sharing. Its definitely a splurge but worth it if you can afford it. The wait staff was so kind and helpful, didnt have any issues with them at all. The food was almost perfect except for the spicy tuna roll which wasnt spicy or flavorful, and the ramen cacio a pepe dish which just fell flat. I definitely recommend getting the scallop sashimi and the duck carnitas! They were great!

Took an hour to get nigiri to come out, wasn’t a busy night either with only 12 tables total. Food was delicious, small bites. Would have ordered more food but kitchen closed by the time our food came out. For the amount paid for the meal, would have expected better service.

The service for the new patio seating situation was lacking. We only had a 1 hour seating limit, but the waiter did not check in on us, so we had to wait a bit to put in our second order for food, and then did not have much time to eat. The food was amazing, but the service could have definitely be better.

Food was so fuego; if I was on death row, the restaurant would certainly be a top five contender for the privilege of preparing that meal before my scheduled departure from this world. The flavors complemented each other in Minimalistic simplicity a, perfect balance of savory and satiation. I left still hungry from the small portions, but that is not a gripe because I would never second guess the chefs discretion in the amount of food to provide because his discretion was so phenomenal regarding taste. Probably for the best anyways, I could do to use some weight, chef knows best.

Quiet city in the days of the corona virus. We had the omakase; the chefs were able to accommodate my wife, who doesn't eat meat. The restaurant is well run, with each course served with an explanation of what we were eating. We thought the music was too loud at first, but the volume got turned down. The room is also fairly dim, but then, we're old.
