KUU Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Kuu is always satisfying. Very busy evening, and the staff did their best. No complaints there. The food was not up to par. The sushi not the expected excellent quality, and not really sure why. It was great, just a notch below what we are used to. Still - great food, and great place.
Found this restaurant on OpenTable and tried it on my girlfriend's birthday. Our server was very attentive and professional. Although some dishes were not available due to lack of ingredient (President's day), server informed us ahead and gave us a plentiful time to consider before ordering the food. Not to mention, every food was on point. They are delicious, could be pricey, but my money was not wasted. I would definitely come back and also liked to recommend this restaurant to my friends.
Food was great, but service was not. Waited an hour for our food, only to be told that there'd been a mixup and another table got our original order. And then they ran out of one of the items we requested, but didn't tell us until the rest of our food was brought out. Waitress was very apologetic, but hadn't checked on us or would have realized the mistakes a lot sooner. Martinis were chintzy. Too bad it was a lousy experience, as the food was very tasty and original.
Took my wife for Valentines Day.
Food was an nothing short of an amazing experience. Service and presentation was very nice. We basically let the waiter point out his recommendations and plate after plate was wonderful. Tapas style. Would highly recommend for special occasions or dates. $$$. Expensive, but in our opinion well worth it.
Food was good but the service was one of the worst I have ever experienced. My wife and I sat and waited 25 minutes before anyone came by our table. She had been one time before and thought it was an isolated incident but after coming back the second time, it wasn't. You can hear the frustration from the other tables on the service as well. We will not be coming back.
Ambiance and service was nice. But food lacked taste. The toro and salmon sashimi did not taste fresh. They did have some decent rolls - The Poseidon and another one that I couldn't remember the spelling to 😬! Value wise - not great. Service was delayed and slow but seemed they were short on staff.
First time dining here and its was really good. the only complaint was were we sat. It was a traditional Japanese table low to the ground and had very hard seats. Other than that, it was great.
Its served tapas style, so we tried quite a few different items. They were all very good.
the total bill for 4 people was less than expected as well!
Delicious creative gourme dishes. Went for our wedding anniversary a few days back and I'm still savoring their tasty dishes. We specially liked their hot rock meat dish, their June role, and their pulled pork and eggplant and miso sesame nigiri. Great environment that works for romantic dinners or gatherings with friends alike. Nice fireplace in the background adds to the feeling of comfort. Service was also very good. Portions are small and it's more of a tapas style, so perhaps not an every day place for most people, but you should definitely try it at some point!
Our service was excellent - our waiter was extremely attentive, and the staff did a great job of making sure our table always had food, but was never too full of plates since the ordering is "tapas style". Our favorites were the hamaccio, Rin roll, and Truffle Suzuki roll.
Even at lunch I expect more than three small slices of pepper salmon on my salad. Also too much dressing. Tasted good. Server was a bit arrogant as I have experienced on previous visits here. Not sure why the air conditioner was working overtime -- it was a warm, humid day but it's January!
I was looking for a nice restaurant to spend my 8 yr anniversary with my wife and we came across KUU. We never been there before nor heard of it, but my wife and I are very grateful we ended up choosing KUU for our anniversary dinner. Great menu, friendly staff and very nice environment for our special occasion. Rick the General Manager went as far as congratulating us with a few glasses of champagne and a house favorite entrée. Thank you RICK! Food was great, looking forward to eating at KUU in the near future. Highly recommend you do the same!
I really like Kuu. The place is nice, the bar great, service awesome and food delicious. The girl at the bar is super super nice, wish i could catch her name. Social hour on mondays is great, and size of dishes is fair and enough for you to try different things. I'll come back soon
Fantastic Service. Intimate ambiance. Well decorated and well dressed crowd. Very impressive. Food was fantastic and definitely worth more than the price. Solid drink menu. Definitely book ahead for the best tables and they cater to special occasions. This is a gem amongst Houston's finest.
Server seemed very nervous (possibly new?) and wasn't very helpful with suggestions. He was very attentive at first but then disappeared for long periods of time. Restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday night at 8pm. Food was ok....very overrated and very expensive. Wine list was mediocre. Would not go back and would not recommend.
KUU is simply amazing. The food is delicious and creative. We had the rock shrimp appetizer--addictive. The sushi is outstanding with very high quality fish and rice. As a treat, they fly in special fish daily from the Tsukiji market in Tokyo daily. I've had this treat twice. If you enjoy sushi, this is something to try.
The bloody mary was excellent.
Last but not least, the service was impeccable. Christine gave us wonderful service. She is very helpful navigating the large menu and understanding some of the unusual fish available. Many thanks to Christine.
Overall, an outstanding and exceptional experience. We highly recommend it.
