We've been going to Uncle Yu's regularly for the last few years. We've found the food and service to be consistently excellent. There are many fine choices on the menu and we especially like the sweet and sour chicken. They offer brown rice in addition to white rice. They have a great wine list for those who enjoy a glass of wine with their meal. There is a gluten-free menu as well - we tried a flourless chocolate cake which was decadent and tasty. They are conveniently located near the Bankhead Theatre and the Livermore Cinemas. You might want to make a reservation on Open Table (go to Uncle Yu's website) as they can get quite busy even on weeknights. Please note that this review is referring to the Uncle Yu's in Livermore - hope you enjoy.
Review on Yelp too.
Very busy.... which is good for the owners.... bad for the diners
Even with reservations it took an hour to be seated and we were even nice about it
Vodka Cranberry with Grey Goose..... watered down..... can Grey Geese fly
Heavenly Manhattan...... no Martini glasses... terrible drink too. I Ski at Heavenly but will never order this drink again or visit Manhattan. They did promo this drink on the receipt.
Wrong food order brought to our table...... receipt shown as promo.... do you think the owners know.
The brown rice was terrible.... could have used it to mortar my bathroom tile..... the overflow server/ cook.... just smiled when we complained......where is ICE ......did I go too far
The waitress...... is that politically correct.... she probably got fired from Denny's last week
I have been to Uncle Yu's many times......its time to find a new go to restaurant in my City.
In all fairness the egg rolls are good, Lemon Chicken was OK, Spare ribs were really good.
We went for Valentine's dinner. Service was professional and cordial, but servers seemed a bit stressed, as if they were struggling to hide their irritation after a long day. Understandable, but not our fault, were just there to enjoy ourselves...Wonderful live string quartet. Nice ambiance. Adorable details at dinner, like the rose-shaped napkin and confetti hearts on the dessert. A bit loud, but fun. I loved the way the owner greeted us at the door. Fun place. Food was decent/good. It is Chinese fusion so the dishes are usually cooked with oil. Well cooked and tasty. Fortune cookies included !
We celebrated Valentine's Day with a lovely evening at Uncle Yu's at the Vineyard. The food was absolutely delicious (3 course menu), the wine selections varied and wonderful, and to add to the romantic atmosphere, there was a beautiful string quartet entertaining us all evening. Another fabulous occasion at Uncle Yu's.
Absolutely one of the finest dining experiences in Livermore. The Valentines Day five (5) course meal was terrific! It could not have been better!!!
Uncle Yu's is always a favorite restaurant. The food is delicious and service is good.
There were several tables available and we were directed to a smaller table for 4. I asked to sit in one of the available booths but was told they save those for larger groups but less than 10 minutes later they said a group of 4 there. Then at the end we provided 2 cards and asked for the bill to be split evenly. My card was a gift card for $100. They charged the entire $100 and the other couple we were with only had their credit card charged for $65. The other couple paid the tip but we were still charged more and I wasn’t going to ask them to give me money to even it up. Food was good but we were extremely crowded and had plates on top of plates. Very disappointing
very nice place. Service was excellent. Easy to find and free parking next door. Great food nicely presented.
Uncle Yu’s is a unique Asian fusion restaurant with a great variety of choices, both number of items and prices. Five of us went to dinner and the bills varied from $14 to $65 (mine with wine). They have a variety of soups from $5, entrees from $14-45, and a massive wine list. I want to return with my wife for the multiple course meal with wine pairings. All five of us loved our food!
Wonderful meal all around. The orange beef is fantastic! Service is great and restaurant is beautiful.
