    My fiancé and I loved our experience here. Amazing food. Personable and attentive staff. The place was very quiet when we went, which allowed us time to converse with the chef and get more details about each course.

    The omakase was unlike any that I’ve ever had. It was wonderful and as a non-Louisianan, I really enjoyed the New Orleans touch to some of the courses. The rice, crème, and orange desert was divine.

    This was such an incredible dining experience. Such a small and intimate restaurant. I was questioning how the feeling might be with only bar seating but the seats are spaced well and bar is deep enough my wife and I both to enjoy and converse with comfort. The service was incredible and super attentive from start to finish. Finally and most importantly the food. Every course was interesting and delicious. Felt at times the presentation made it even better. Loved this place and will come again. Worth every penny in my opinion. Oh…try some of their signature cocktails too. Fantastic!!

    A great experience! I’m not really a ‘foodie’, but we do dine regularly at some of the top rated restaurants. You pay more for the experience here than the food. While the food was excellent, it is over priced at over $150pp. Would highly recommend at least once!

    Out of all the omakase experience it was lackluster. For a city near a major port you'd think there would be a better fish variety than the typical fresh yellow tail and salmon. There was nothing remarkable and seasonal about the food except the pumpkin soup (which was the only good thing).

    Have had Yo Nashi on our radar for 2 + years, since relocating to NOLA. We're waiting to go with couple friends but decided we couldn't wait any longer. So happy we did. The courses were all well balanced and flavorful. The staff was very responsive and attentive. Will be returning for another special date night.

    So disappointed in the food shrimp overcooked only one sushi was fresh and the entree average. The girl that was cleaning the Matt’s was two feet away and we were still eating and could smell the cleaning solution. I could never recommend this place

    We enjoyed our meal but it was very uneven. Some dishes were good, one or two even great, but some, especially the sushi, were mediocre. In fact, I'm inclined to think that this place doesn't really want to be a Japanese restaurant at all - the best dishes were the least distinctively Japanese. The main issue with the sushi was that the rice was not well done, it was somewhat overcooked and it had no detectable vinegar. One piece we had was charred/torched and was cooked through, even over cooked and rubbery on the edges, and the other pieces were lackluster even with "clever" toppings.

    This meal was such a special experience. Each course was clearly thought through, with care and attention poured into the plating, and each balance of flavor. They use fantastic ingredients that level up each dish. They went above and beyond to make us feel well celebrated and that the money we put down well spent. This place should be WAY more popular than it is ESPECIALLY for the lack of good sushi in New Orleans. yes, it's a pricey meal, but it's one you'll never forget.

    The food was good but somewhat unremarkable. The sushi course was particularly dull and disappointing. Overall the tasting menu does not justify the cost. I had the tasting menu at Lengua Madre last week, which was priced $20 less. I'm still thinking about that meal. It was creative and impeccably executed. Yo Nashi by comparison was just meh. Not bad, but certainly not special.

    Chef Mack does an amazing job creating thoughtfully imagined plates. Think Japanese style with a New Orleans flare. There is an extensive wine, sake and craft cocktail list that pairs wonderfully with the food. I also thought the omakase pricing was very fair for what was served. I did not leave hungry! I do wish the atmosphere was a bit brighter, or calming, but other than that I had a memorable experience.

    I just had an absolute blast! I will say, the drinks taste sweet and they creep up on you quietly. There was moments that I just closed my eyes just to enjoy. The marbled tuna belly was remarkable and one of the best things I have ever had in my life. Everyday food seemed bland after this.
