Uchi was firmly on my dinner wishlist for our Texas trip so we made advance reservations for Halloween. It's being described as modern, non-traditional Japanese though to me it seemed like Japanese fusion cookery with broader Asian and Western influences.Despite this being one of the swankier places the feel is casual. Staff were dressed up in hilarious Halloween costumes and customers, a young crowd in the main, were pretty casual, too.Decor is pretty minimalist though there is some floral wallpaper and it is rather dark.They were handing out free sushi canapes while we were waiting to be seated. The menu (s) is a bit overwhelming to begin with. Lots of choices, lots of unfamiliar ingredients. There was a huge separate vegetarian menu. Fortunately, the server was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had booked a 5 pm booking, which was eligible for the (sake social) happy hour dishes. We also got two complementary dishes - a type of mushroom ceviche and some yellowtail sashimi with chilli and orange.Food was good. The standout dishes for me were the deliciously meaty oak grilled escolar with candied citrus and the grilled romaine handroll with boquerones. Some of the dishes relied too much on rich sauces I thought: the yucca chips came with a heavy bbq style sauce, the prawn tempura came with a mayo mix, which is ok but tasted somewhat unrefined. More delicate flavours would have wowed me more.My cocktail with yuzu and sake was reminiscent of punch but a very tasty one. Dessert super tasty. We tried the honey toast with brioche, cashew praline and honey ice cream as well as the banana okashi with chocolate ganache and passionfruit-filled chocolate globe.Overall a lovely experience. Not the best food I have ever eaten but still a memorable dinner. I'm toying with the idea of heading to Uchiko, the sister restaurant, to give that a try.Free valet parking at the restaurant.

We are proud to announce... Chef Tyson Cole, winner of the 2011 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Southwest--Thank you Uchi and Uchiko family and friends for your support! --------------------------------------------------------------------------
We were fortunate to be able to make an advanced reservation for dinner during graduation weekend. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. The kitchen was cognizant of our dietary restrictions. We were able to order some items from the Happy Hour menu which provided great value. We highly recommend this restaurant.

All of their seafood is sustainable, which is amazing. Also, very delicious No parking lot so you'll have to find street parking but that's Congress Ave for ya. Really great service. We did one of the sake flights and all the options chosen by the somalier were spot on. Definitely recommend!
