Food was well executed.
Our server needs more training in listening carefully (possibly English as a second language); a couple of errors for our hand roll--gave sesame soy instead of seaweed wrap; no tobiko--she even came back a 2nd time to confirm this item, and when we received the item, we even asked "this is seaweed?" and she said "yes". Finally asked the manager and told her the 2 items missing, which she confirmed that it was not seaweed. Manager was helpful and pleasant!
Menu needs to be less extensive; too many items.
Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience! We'd return to try more items.

Fun different items to try
The atmosphere is fun, and so is the food. There are different variations of sushi rolls to try, but don't limit yourself to that. I really love the eel fried rice!

The food is great, the service
The food is great, the service good, fish is fresh, and I love everything about this place except when there are families there. Somehow, almost every child that walks into this restaurant is a complete brat.

First time to this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Over all ambiance was nice. The details to the food presentation was outstanding (especially the presentation of their sushi dishes). Overall taste of the dishes we had ordered was delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Love Love Love
The service there deserved more than 5 stars. I can't describe what a great time I had at Yuubi. The food was exquisite and for once the waiter and chef didn't sound like they were reading off something they memorized earlier that day. They had real suggestions that went along with food I said I liked and didn't like. They really understood their menu inside and out and even went out of their way to customized certain dishes for me. The food was sublime. I tried so many new foods that day and all of them were plated beautifully and tasted like a little piece of fish heaven. The sushi chef ,Jason, is truly a genius when it comes to his food.

Not your ordinary sushi menu (although they have basic rolls and sashimi too). Beautifully prepared and inventive dishes rarely disappoint. We'll be back again and again!

Man hating night. ...sorry guys!
My girl friend just found out her guy was cheating on her, so I suggested we go to this restaurant to have a man hating dinner! The sake and food was good! Service was amazing and staff was very friendly. We closed the place down and staff never rushed us out! I will go back again soon!

Always Fun and Yum!
Been coming here since they opened and always have a good time. Sushi chefs know what they're doing and servers are attentive and on-point with recommendations. Do yourself a favor and take your girl/boyfriend, Friday night pre-party crew, family, whatever - you won't leave disappointed!

A real neighborhood gem
With a diverse menu and friendly staff, this simple Japanese restaurant is nothing short of a neighborhood gem. We braved the peak hour traffic to cross town and were pleasantly surprised by the whole meal. Our Omakase sashimi platter was really great value and made it worth the drive! The funky rolls were good too, although nothing special given everyone has spicy mayo and aioli in their rolls nowadays.
Their customer service also earn some points with the complimentary valet service. Truly a neighborhood gem!

fresh, creative sushi
We wanted sushi in my daughter's neighborhood so after checking on Yelp, we thought we'd give Yuubi a try. We were delighted with the quality and originality of the sushi and we were surprised at the affordability. I had teriyaki salmon and it was perfectly prepared and came with miso soup and salad - what a tasty deal. The service was prompt and friendly. My only concern was that the restaurant itself lacked ambiance. The space was vacuous and cold and the tea and miso soup was already cold before we could finish it. Too bad because everything else about this restaurant was top notch!
