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.

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

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!

Everything was perfection at Uncle Yu's last Saturday night. From the wine selection and appetizers, to the main courses, the dishes were superb, the service was excellent, and the ambiance was beautiful. Special thanks to Nick who took such superb care of us. We have not seen him since the San Ramon location closed, and he was as charming and accommodating as ever! Thank you, Nick.

We stopped going to Uncle Yu’s about 2 Years ago after consistently bad service over several visits. We decided to give it another try last night, and had the best restaurant experience we’ve had in a very long time. The food was spectacular (as it always has been, really), but our server—Michelle—was the one who made it such a positive experience. Beyond her personality, which was warm and friendly without being disruptive or intrusive, she attended to our orders, or drinks, and our food in a way that was perfectly paced (not an easy task!). We got refills on our drinks without even asking, and were able to finish our appetizers just before the main courses started to arrive. She made my son’s birthday so special, a great experience for everyone all around!

We met for lunch and were not disappointed. The servers were friendly attentive and very helpful with recommendations. Everyone ordered off the lunch menu and we all had different dishes. I have the Sezchuan Shrimp. It was delicious. The lunch came with soup and it was great too. I highly recommend Uncle Yu’s and would go back for dinner.

We went for New Year’s Eve. In the past they had a limited prix fixe menu, however this year they offered a more extensive menu and the kitchen and service staff were overwhelmed. The food was still excellent, however the service suffered.
