The food was fresh and delicious! Large portions and we had a great time with our master grill chef Chung! We will take the kids next time and will request Chung to be our host on the grill!
Always a great dining experience at Yanagi. Celebrated grandson’s 13th birthday. Restaurant was his choice! Staff is always so attentive. We will return!
Fun birthday dinner spot.
We had a delightful lunch experience! From the warm & engaging front of house staff to the attentive wait staff. The OpenTable reservation process was great! I recommend using it. We decided on sushi & a variety of sides... we were not dissapointed! Yummy! Everything was fresh & very tasty and presented beautifully. Next time we will go for the grill. Looking forward to going back with friends so they, too, can enjoy a nice lunch experience!
The food is great. I really like the fact that lots of their rolls do not have rice. It is fresh and tasty. Service is just so-so. Everyone is nice and friendly but how many times do we need a waiter/waitress to come and ask what we want to drink. I also don't like the fact that food is delivered whenever it is ready instead of all together but that's my preference.
I did order the wrong salmon roll and apologize for my error and they did end up giving it to us for free which was not necessary.
It's authentic, fast and friendly service always reasons for me to recommend your restaurants to friends and colleagues
Always a good place to have sushi and a little cooking in front of you this is a great place for celebrations
A friend and myself were able to sit at the sushi bar. The food was prepared in front of us and looked so fresh. The taste was amazing, I had several orders of Hamchi (my favorite). Also had the salmon, spider roll and rainbow roll. All of it was excellent. Great experience.
Very good food. Service needs to improve. I would mostly recommend this place for lunches and take away.
Great food, fun atmosphere and attentive service!
Far better ventilation than Hana Japan, if you go there you may need to wash/dry clean whatever you wear. This restaurant is much better for Tapenade style dinner
Excellent meal at the sushi counter. Try to get seats with Jay the owner working at the sushi counter!
The food and services are just fine, we are just not comfortable with the food cooking and food aroma and smoking oil from the cooking at the chef cook tables. When went home our hair and clothing full of food smell and oily particles are still hanging around.
I think it is better having a divider for the two sections.
The food is good and sashimi is fresh, but the ambience smell is not good. Hope to see some improvement.
Our chef was very entertaining and friendly. The food was delicious and we had a great time.
Our Favorite go to is Hamachi Kama, and this Restaurant cooked it to Perfection! The Staff and Owner were very Friendly and Attentive, they are ready to take care of their Customers. It is also a Family Friendly Restaurant, we will be back as soon as we can and we will highly recommend Yanagi to Family and Friends!❤️
Always go to this place one of the best spots not just for sushi but for Teppanyaki Grill also. Service is always great they know us here and love that they put extra care into returning customers.
Sushi just wasn't fresh enough. Server had difficulty understanding our requests, delivered one incorrect order, and charged us for miso that we had not ordered.
Three times a Lady roll is a must! It's awesome watching Jay behind the sushi bar making the rolls!!!
Food was very good
Service was adequate
Excellent food and service for a good price. A little weak on the ambiance/decor, but definitely a great place to go.
Food is fabulous, fresh and beautifully presented. Great service. Family style or individual. The sea bass is the best! I've eaten here many times and I've never been disappointed.
Always great to come here always the best experience ever.
Took a friend here for her birthday and we enjoyed the teppanyaki as well as sushi. The chef was very funny and entertaining and we had a good time.
Food was great but the restaurant is looking very tired. Menus are dirty and falling apart. Seats need new covers.
This was our first time in this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Great quality fish and attentive staff. We will definitely return.
I made the reservation on-line and when we got there they could not find the reservation. They accommodated us within 5 minutes. The service was outstanding but I felt a bit rushed. Food was great!!
We dined at yanagi for Father's Day. Great interesting fresh sushi
Good was fair but service was poor.
Staff was very nice and the open cooking experience was enjoyable. The food was burnt and lacked flavor.
One of the better Teppanyaki Grills in the East Bay. The food is very good and the service was great. It's a great place to come for a birthday celebration or just do something that is fun and different. You get your meal and entertainment all at the same time.
Very disappointed in our at table meal experience. All the other tables had a lively and fun chief. Ours didn't even attempt to entertain us and even for annoyed at us when he messed up our order and the other family at our table's order.
I was a little disappointed with the quality of the sushi, the Toro was sliced way too thick and was extremely oily and overpriced. Took my niece for her birthday and was hoping to wow her. Would be willing to come back to try the Teppanyaki where people seem to really enjoy. Ambiance was fun, food presentation was nice but expected a lot more for what we paid.
We loved our dinner, the sushi was really fresh, the servers were really friendly and attentive, so we will certainly be back.
Sushi is awesome
Always reliable, and this time I needed a corner with a little quiet - that is often not possible because it's ALWAYS busy. But we were on the tail end of lunch hour and they put is in a noce corner and didn't seat anyone close. Perfect.
Service is always good and the food is impeccable.
Always have a great dinner here. Food is great, service is great!
Fun place to dine with family. Its dinner and a show
I loved the layout of the restaurant, and the servers were incredible - kind, fast, and fun.
