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!❤️

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yanagi is one of our favorite places in the valley. My wife and I have eaten here countless times, and I think it is the best sushi and overall dining experience in the area.

We've been here a few times, and this time seemed lackluster. The chef preparing our food at the Teppanyaki grill was very quick and it wasn't as much of a show(something we came for). It was quite a disappointment this time, my date didn't even get her steamed rice until she was done with her entree. Not very happy this time, love the restaurant just this time wasn't the best. Also, a seating mix-up meant we didn't start eating until 30 mins after the time we should've been

We have been here a few times but the Teppan chef, Jonathan, assigned to us was excellent in both the meal and entertainment (he did a few new things we haven’t seen before). The servers were also very nice.

Booking online at opentable was quick and easy. When we arrived at the restaurant, they had us on the list and seated us right away. The staff came to the table quickly and took care of the orders right away. The staff constantly checked on us and made sure dirty plates were removed quickly and checked on our liking of the food.

This was are my third visit with my son and grandsons.
This experience was so much fun. It was Father's Day so it was busy. The restaurant did not over book and everything went smooth. We were able to make a last minute reservation. The chef was very professional and very entertaining. The food was very good this time. I think because of the chef.
