A word from Yakitori Sake House
Vibrant music, a lively crowd, and the flames of the yakitori grill tantalizing you as the char-grilled aromas of meats and veggies remind you just how much you LOVE food! Experience all this and more as Boca Raton’s very first "Izakaya", Japanese lounge, has opened its doors and its arms wide, going way beyond your typical sushi joint. We offer only the finest ingredients that come to life as art through the talents of our Master sushi chefs and Yakitori Grillmaster. The outcome is simply phenomenal food. All great food deserves to be paired with great wine and sake for the perfect balance. With that said, we are proud to offer not only a full sushi and yakitori bar, but also a comprehensive list of outstanding wines and sakes by the glass or by the bottle. After all, what else did you think the "Sake House" in our name stood for? So, bring your friends and family, or make new ones here and let the sake bombing begin!

    This was our first time at this restaurant. It's name had kept us away for years, but we read user reviews that were almost all very positive. Well, the positive reviews were right on. The selection is fantastic and the food itself was excellent They did not miss a beat.

    We read many rave reviews and were happy to learn first hand they were accurate! Everything was excellent; our salmon appetizer; miso pork dumplings, miso soup and salads were very tasty, we had Mongolian beef (excellent), a chicken dish and a specialty roll amongst the 5 of us and everyone was very happy. All in all, highly recommended.

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    The sushi is good and other entrees were very good as well. During the week is fine, but don't go on a Saturday night. We sat down around 7:45pm and were not served our appetizers until after 9pm! I was so beyond hungry by that point that I didn't even want it. Then my entree came out so shortly after that long wait for the appetizers that I couldn't even eat it. I asked about the long wait several times, and was told "You're next" as others continued to be served. The waiter was running around, so I don't know if the restaurant was short staffed, but I hesitate to try again. Our bill ended up being over $70 and I didn't even eat my meal as it ended up coming so late. To the manager's credit, she did send over a sake, but I was hungry!!

    The ambiance of Yakitori was very nice the restaurant is small which is no big deal because it's perfect for a romantic date. The problem I experience is our waitress seem to be very forgetful she never bought out my Lychee Sake I had to remind her to bring it out. Then when I ordered my Sea Bass Ultimate roll it took a while so I kindly asked her "did you put in the Ultimate Sea Bass roll" she then replied "yes yes it takes about 15mins to prepare" which 15mins had already passed! I mean I was only celebrating my boyfriend's Birthday"

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/26/2014
    Reservation for 7:30 seated immediately. The miso soup was filled with tofu and greens which was delicious. King crab roll was a perfect mix of flavor. The waitress was very pleasant. We ordered tempura shrimp w/veggies but was brought only the shrimp. The waitress offered to take it back but we kept it and they were so good and very crunchy. I expect to be back very soon and hope the food is consistently exceptional. Atmosphere also very relaxing.

    I took my 91 year old mother to Yakitori. Our waitperson, Yuan took wonderful care of her, even bringing a bowl of warm soup because Mother felt cold. Mother loved her sashimi (she is quite the sushi maven) and I loved it -- which is a high compliment. The sui mai and alligator yakitori (Mother's first experience of alligator) were fine. Great sake list, too. Highly recommended.

    thie fish was great - very fresh and no complaints on the food quality. Service was good. Pricing was reasonable for the quality of the fish. The problem was that inside there was a table of 12-14 that was drinking and VERY LOUD. we sat across the restaurant from them and couldn't hear each other. My wife and i have multiple kids and like to get out once a week to catch up with each other and acttually talk. Didn't happen here. We coudl have sat outside but it was 80 degrees out and they were running the flame heaters out there, so it would have been just as uncomfortable outside. Might go back for lunch, but never again for a Saturday night dinner with my wife.
