Uncle Yu's at the Vineyard
The food was great and amazing selection.
Food took a long time, but usually is better/faster.
Always a great choice for lunch with friends. The lunch specials are varied, and there is usually something on the menu that appeals to everyone. Uncle Yu's is one of my favorite restaurants and a top Livermore choice!
We haven’t been to Uncle Yu’s in awhile. Decided to stop in for dinner before a concert. I will now be back often! I forgot what a great meal and service you get here. Highly recommend the tasting menu and with wine pairing! Lobster, Kobe beef excellent wine and great cocktails, can’t go wrong here.
We sat outside and the ambiance was amazing. Our server was great too!
We had a wonderful lunch at Uncle Yu’s. The entrees were delicious and the menu was extensive ensuring that everyone in your party will find something to their liking. We would highly recommend the Pumpkin Dumpling with Sea Scallops and Wild Shrimp appetizer as a special treat. This was my second visit to Uncle Yu’s and I’m sure that we will returning in the future.
Great service and good food
Service was bad and subtracted from a good experience.
Food is was mostly really good but they made a mistake on one of the plate and cooked the correct one last minute but it didn’t taste right. Also we got the all the plates in a 10 Minutes stretch so some people ate cold food (not counting the one they messed up )
The most disappointing thing was that we ordered flight of wine that is supposedly very good but the wine weren’t that great and the server did t know what they were also there is a table fee ? Lol
Shame that the prices go up and the portions get smaller. The non-associated Andy and Yu's is nicer but also just as pricey. Used to be able to get 6 potstickers in an order and they have since changed to 4. BBQ Pork Fried rice was decent, instead of getting char siu we got what looked like SPAM. Sweet and Sour chicken is always good but the portion sizes are terrible. Have to buy 2 of everything just to feed a family of 4. Less veggies and more chicken,
Sea Bass Puffs.... Hrngh... So good. I also love their dimsum options. The Lychee Magarita was good. A bit strong. The Goat Cheese won tons we're also very tasty. If come back just for the Sea Bass Puffs.
Great food and service with an amazing wine list. On the strip in Livermore where parking in the evening may be challenging but that is not the restaurant’s fault.
I took my son and his wife out to dinner and we had a very nice time. The food was great and the staff was very pleasant.
My wife and I have generally liked Uncle Yu’s; however, on this occasion, when we ordered the honey walnut shrimp, the shrimp smelled and tasted fishy. This tells me the shrimp were not fresh; and in fact, are on the verge or turning. I was very disappointed!!!
My wife and I had the prix fixe for anniversary dinner. As always, the food was spectacular, and wine pairings were amazing. Only reason Uncle Yu's doesn't get 5 stars this time is that the server didn't bring our doggy bag when we left.
If you are looking for authentic Chinese cuisine, they bypass Uncle Yu's. A disappointing style of cooking. As the food is fairly standard American-Chinese, you would find much better value at your neighborhood Chinese restaurant.
We love this place. The allow us to order as we like, which is important for picky eaters.....
Food and service was amazing!
Overall good. Food was nice , service was good , ambience was nice except for having flies in the restaurant. They kept the door open. Floor can be cleaner. They put us in the corner near the kitchen.
We had the Chef's paring dinner. It was fabulous! a surprise at each course. The wine paring was spot on.
I went there for lunch and my meal was fantastic. Excellent service and the food was incredible as always. It’s a must do lunch date for my Seattle family whenever they are in town.
My Wife’s birthday
$45 Peking duck was served luke warm and extremely oily.
As usual Uncle Yu’s was a great meal. We have our favorite dishes of course and are never disappointed. We keep coming back for a reason. Great dishes and service.
Not up to par with slow service. The food was rushed and not completely cooked. Not what I have come to expect from Uncle Yu's which is typically terrific . Server was a bit snarky. Warm beer served...go figure that one out.... I will not let this less than superior outing diminish my overall liking of Uncle Yu's. The New Years Eve dinner date was to die for, yes, that good!!!
Great food! Great ambiance! They have good wine and champagne and we had a great salmon pizzeta appetizer. We also had a great sorbet dessert. Luke was our server and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. One of my favorite places in Livermore!
Sadly the hot and sour soup was coagulated as if it were previously frozen. Huge chunks of brown goop is not appetizing. Our server was exceptional.
Great Peking duck! Good potstickers. Lychee cocktail is wonderful.
Great food and ambiance. We enjoy the outdoor patio. The service is always friendly.
One of the most memorable dinners I’ve had in a long time! We loved that they don’t serve your typical heavy/oily dishes, rather, they serve up fresh takes on Chinese restaurant classics. We sat outdoors and ate family style. One person in our group is gluten free and vegetarian so we ordered a few vegetable and rice options of off the Gluten Free menu, an appetizer, a salad, and a chicken entree. The meal was outstanding! We ended with a few desserts to share. We were surprised that 5 of us could eat all of that for under $100. We will definitely be back!
Uncles Yu's (Livermore) is by far the best Chinese Food we have ever had. The proteins are top grade and the produce is extremely fresh and tasty. They use the finest ingredients. The dishes have a strong flavor profile that are differentiated from each other. Absolutely delicious every single time. Great for a family dinner and/or special event!
Another great dinner with friends and family. Thank you to the UY'S team!
Business meal after a long meeting. Food was excellent and service above average. Noise level a bit higher that desired as we continued our meeting at dinner. Would go back again, overall experience was good.
Excellent- always great experience- great food- great service!
The food was good.
The waiter or should I say the staff boxing our leftovers shortchanged us. I was very disappointed not to discover one of our entrees which was not even halfway consumed not on the to-go bag when I got home. We even offered to just box our leftovers ourselves but was told that they box it for excellent service. Oh, well...
Been here several times over the years. Has been a go to for some special occasions. Seeing a gradual degradation in overall quality. The menus have been dogeared for at least 2 years now. Need to be replaced. The price for a 6 oz. glass of a Livermore wine is 15% more than in other comparably priced restaurants. The portion sizes are decreasing even as the prices are increasing. They mask this in smaller sized service plates. Even the service slipped this time. Servers brought us someone else's app. Took them awhile to take it back. Hope some other diner did not get either their app. either cold or reheated. The only redeeming quality is that the taste of the food continues to be maintained at a high level. The owners see to be distracted with opening new restaurants. I hope they regain focus.
Excellent service, food, and cocktails. We had a wonderful lunch, but the stars of the meal were the appetizers and cocktails. Dad loved the desserts. I appreciated the attentive service and well paced service. Thank you for a memorable afternoon out with the parents.
Great food, great service.
Great and fun!
Love Peking Duck and order it frequently here, last nights was flimsy and not crispy.
