  • What happened to Yoshi's restaurant

    Dined on 7/12/2014
    What a disappointment. We were so looking forward to the Michelin Star restaurant we've been dining at for years. The Cajun Roll we've come to love is no longer on the menu. The scallops were drastically under seasoned & incredibly bland. The mushroom risotto tasted like undercooked frozen rice. It was chewy not creamy. The food was just Terrible and way overpriced for the quality of the food! I will choose a different restaurant to dine at from now on.

    Good Food but not Japanese style. Needs to be in more in line with Japanese decor. They provide good service. Bus boys are on task. Waitress kinda floated around, wasn't available when needed. Chef's gave a superb presentation. Great set-up for groups, the way they can enlarge a table if needed.

    Went to Yoshi's for dinner prior to an event. Hostess was very friendly but the good experience stopped there. My friend was late, and I told the waiter that I would likely order for her so that our food would be ready in time to eat before the show. The waiter told me not to worry, he'd keep an eye on us to ensure we'd have plenty of time. Then that was about the last we saw him! Ordered a drink and some edamame; the drink came after about 20 minutes, but the edamame never came. When my friend arrived, we had to waylay waiter to finally get our order in. Then the order arrived, and they got mine wrong, didn't bring cutlery for my friend's salad, brought my main before my starter, and my friend's food came with only momemnts to spare

    Server was very pleasant, but failed to bring drink refill orders until reminded three times; one entree arrived 15 minutes before the second; one of the sushi orders arrived 30 minutes after the first one arrived. We had already asked for our bill in order to make it to the 8pm show when the last sushi dish arrived.

    Celebrated a birthday and enjoyed an early reservation before a concert. Bit disappointed that the waiter didn't offer anything special for the birthday girl. Polar Bear Roll was delicious and all sushi rolls were fresh and yummy. I chose Asahi Beer for my beverage with dinner... by the time the concert started the restaurant and the venue had run out. Too bad. Overall, we would dine at Yoshi's again when the budget can afford it!

    We two ordered a number of appetizers to be served together as a meal. Each one in fact came out separately so that we were never eating at the same time. The last thing we ordered came out at the moment we needed to leave for a performance.

    It was my husband's and I first time. Ordered sushi rolls, very fresh and delicious. The only reason I gave it a four star is because I didn't like the seating set up. You are so close to the couples on each side of you that you have no privacy whatsoever. You can hear everyone's conversations and they are so close you could touch their food on their plates.

    Service might be slow if you go before 7:30 when those who are going to the theater must be served first. This time we reserved a 8:15 spot, but got there before 8:00. They were able to find a table and served promptly. We really enjoyed the good food, the music, and the casual atmosphere.

    First, it took us 15 minutes to even be noticed at the bar (there were only 4 total patrons, and 3 bartenders.) Then, we were told we would not be able to order the ribs (a bar menu item) at our table. We asked kindly if our server would mind asking the manager, but he returned about a minute later and just told us no. Then, at about 10pm (we sat at 8pm), a construction worker with a headlamp on asked if he could dismantle our booth - apparently they were setting up for some night event and needed our table. It was very bizarre, and we hadn't even gotten the check yet. 15 minutes later, the construction guy came back and seemed annoyed that we hadn't left. There was no manager to be found. Super odd and will never return.

    I understand there is a change in ownership occurring here. Media indicated they were going for a seamless transition. Not so much. It was 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged we were there after being seated. We ordered drinks and dinner, as we didn't want to be late for the show. 20 minutes later we still didn't have our drinks; 10 minutes later my glass of wine arrived, but not my husband's beer. Before my salad arrived, my main course (steak) arrived. I explained that I would like to have my first course first. My husband never received the soup he ordered (soup!) even though we reminded the wait staff about it three times! I did finally receive my salad, and my husband got his main dish, but I never got my main course back.

    We went there to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary. I also noted that on my open table reservation request. To my surprise they had no idea. Once seated a server came by and asked what we would like to drink and gave us menu's. It took nearly 15 min for him to return to take our order. I went to the host up front and told her it was our anniversary she simply nodded and made a notation. That was it ??

    Change in ownership and employees has really affected service and attitude. appetizer came out with ice cold entrees. Waitress was very kind and took back cold entree. Unfortunately she brought back a hot entree after my wife had finished hers. I tipped her 20% as I always do but I will not dine their again.. The main reason we always ate their was the seat reservation that came with dinner. That is no longer their policy so we can eat somewhere else in the neighborhood.

    Probably the only reason to eat here is to get a reserved seat for a concert. While the food was pretty good, it wasn't great. And while our waitress was nice, she was slow and made one error with our order. This was corrected with sincere apologIes, to her credit. Great place to hear music,which means I will go back.

    The waiter came over and said he would be back in a few. The few turned out to be 20 minutes. We asked a few questions. Then we hesitated and he ran off again. We asked if he would write two separate checks. He took his time bringing us the bill even knowing we were going to the show. It was all together on one tab for us to have to separate. The eggplant dish had NO eggplant in it. He said he would bring us a side of eggplant. That took another long time. Someone else brought it over. There was 3 skinny slices in a bowl. You need to rename that dish or give a significant amount of eggplant to justify what you are calling it. The food was average and way over priced. The service sucked. We LOVED the show but won't do dinner again.

    I went here for my six year anniversary with my fiance. We are big fans of Yoshi's. The food was decent, but not the best we've had. I was very disappointed in the menu, as it was father's day and there was a prefixed menu. I wish I knew ahead of time that there would be a fixed menu, because I really didn't like the minimal choices, and I wasn't willing to spend $50 on the prefixed meals. However, we enjoyed how beautiful the place was, and it was a wonderful atmosphere. I think because it was father's day, that the service was a bit slower than usual. I was also disappointed in the dessert selection. Very few options and ALL had diary in it : (

    Had reservations, was immediately seated but was seated at a small table practically sitting with the people next to us. (Restaurant was not crowded so there was no need to cram the patrons together) sat then at the lounge which was spacious but our waitress was slow and had hardly any knowledge of the food or about how the show venue worked. Food was mediocre for San Francisco and pricey for appetizers so no value for $58 that included SF's extra health tax. As for the show, it was awesome! I advise to eat your favorite restaurant then come here for the show.

    As a person who rarely dines out and never goes to a "swanky" restaurant, The Tubes show of June12 was for me a special occasion and the reserved concert seating was a big reason I dined there. And it was a belated birthday treat and a celebration of a new job, so I decided to treat myself to a rare dining experience. The food was excellent, the service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. All the staff in all aspects of the club was also friendly and helpful. The only negative I can find is the tables for two are a little long and a bit close to other tables, so it would be hard to have an intimate, romantic dinner in that setting. Other than that, despite the (for me) heart-stopping bill, I had a wonderful time!

    We were a party of four and arrived with reservations about possible poor service after reading posted reviews. However, we were delighted to experience very good service with a heads up approach by our server who was great and there for us. Service was quick and courteously thoughtful. The food was excellent and we loved the open kitchen. Especially amazing were the brussels sprouts, a must for all veggie lovers. The velvet cake was a solid winner but alas, the cotto was not to our taste. Highly recommend Yoshi's SF.

    It would be good if the SF Yoshi's and the Oakland Yoshi's could communicate with each other so that, when patrons visit either, they can tell us what the differences are......which was not the case when I went to Oakland on Friday and decided to go again on Saturday...the SF staff was clueless about Oakland's venues.
