Among the half dozen or so things that were included in the dinner were two items that were absolutely outstanding - a seared tuna and the soup appetizer. Everything else was simply excellent.

It was really nice.. I do believe the portions are just a tad too small and the time between portions are too great. Keeping in mind that every is made fresh so I understand. My reservations was at 5:45 and I left at 7:30. Overall good experience I’d go back!

Yo Nashi never disappoints. Spectacular from first bite to last, and a phenomenal wine/sake/drinks list. And the nicest most knowledgeable ownership, chef, staff. Yo Nashi is a special treat and a real joy.

Need more raw fish. Only 5 pc sushi over the serving. Food is delicious but portion is too small. I recommend, charge more to better sushi. Here is not a Omakase sushi restaurant.

This restaurant has all of the makings of a high-end experience; however, don’t be fooled by the 8-course meal hook-line! If you want to spend nearly 400-dollars for snack size bites, be my guest! The food was decent but way over priced. If you are someone who appreciates more bang for your buck, be a “Yo No-show,” and check out some of the other great restaurants NOLA has to offer.

Yo Nashi was tasty, but it was not worth the cost. Omakase's are always expensive, but they usually wow in several different ways. Yo Nashi's food was not inventive, and frankly, the $50 add on of Wagyu (which was a substitution, not an addition) was so far from being worth the cost that it is almost laughable. Several of the ingredients used were creative, but not complementary. Frequently, the housemade condiments and the accompanying ingredients were overpowered by a single flavor or the mix was muddy and unexciting. Omakase's are worth the cost because of the chef's inventiveness and taste. This felt like it offered neither - just small bites of food with creative flavors that didn't work well together.

Food was good, but not worth $400 for two people. Portions too small, had to wait too long in between courses. We left hungry. Service was not great either. They only had about 10 people dining and the waitress forgot our drink orders several times. Would not go back.

Very Impressed!!! This Japanese style cuisine utilizes local ingredients to cultivate one of the best experiences I’ve had in a while ! This restaurant only seats up to 20 people at a time, so I would recommend making a reservation or calling ahead a time!
This experience includes 5-course meal (menu changes daily) from the chef of the night, Jackie was amazing!!! The food was phenomenal, although the portions are petite, I left feeling satisfied! They have a creative cocktail, wine, and sake list that pairs well with the food. The service was also one to remember, Thanks Amber!! Overall, I’m local and would recommend this experience to anyone.

We have been to Yo Nashua 3 times in the passed six weeks and every time it has been amazing. If you love sushi/Asian cuisine it is a must try in New Orleans. We will definitely be going back as often as we can.
