Yo Sake Downtown Sushi Lounge
Any item we ordered that was fried was burnt. The Shelly roll we ordered was off as well. The temporary didn't stick to the Firecracker shrimp. This was the first time having food here where it was less than stellar. Service was excellent. I have another gathering here later. Hopefully it will improve. I love this place and used to have only the best to say. Was really embarrassed I had recommended here. Will give it another chance!
Very good food, awesome staff, and really great deals
If you love sushi I’ve heard they’re the best. Not being a sushi person myself I used to loveeee the black forbidden rice or sticky rice but the past 4 times it’s been undercooked or just not cooked right...the sweet and sour tempura chicken is more like chicken nuggets and steamed broccoli but the pan seared salmon is good most of the time! As is the soup and tempura veggie specials. Overall a GREAT place but ALWAYS get a reservation on the weekends!
Yo Sake is always delicious! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.
Yo Sake is our go-to spot whenever we are in town for a show or to drop our son off at the theatre. Delicious food and great ambiance. We also love to bring out of town visitors to Yo Sake for a wonderful meal.
We love Sushi and Yo Sake is always our 1st pick. Love that chief recognizes us when we come in, and he knows I love octopus. Always makes us feel special. Their martinis are top notch also!
Superb food. Wonderful service from the young female bartender who waited the wall table while also tending bar. Our second time there and we will continue to return and make our way through the menu.
We have been to this restaurant several times and thoroughly enjoyed it. Brought friends for their first time and food was just ok. Menu has changed and some of the old favorites are gone. My husband got his usual tuna teriyaki and it was smothered in sauce and not nearly as good as usual. With all of the good restaurants in town we are not sure we will return to Yo Sake. Our friends thought their meals were so-so.
Our friend has to ask twice for her ordered soup and never got the seaweed she asked for.
Always great food and excellent service! One of our rolls was a little off tonight but still can’t complain over all. Great sushi. Excellent atmosphere!
Very good food and atmosphere! Food was wonderful but noodles were very spicy!!
Best sushi we've had in the Wilmington area! Nice little bar while we were waiting for our table (we were early for our rez), where we had some lovely cocktails. Our sushi rolls were both creative and utterly delicious, washed down with some crisply cold sake. To top off an already lovely Valentine's Day dinner, we shared one of their outrageous dessert concoctions. The yummy dark chocolate flavor of the warm brownie paired nicely with the locally-made coconut ice cream, all made even more delightful by the combined textures of soft brownie, crunchy top, creamy coconut and gentle snap of the blueberries. Truly the best dessert we've had so far this year! btw, the decor is both subdued and lovely.
Great place. Was able to enjoy dinner with my wife in an exciting atmosphere
I do enjoy Yosake normally; this is the first time that I have been disappointed. I have been there numerous times, the food is normally very delicious. This time the food was mediocre along with the service. I will go back just not during happy hour.
Made this reservation a week in advance took over an hour to be seated was disappointed when trying to entertain out of town guest. Food is always amazing.
The historic building, edgy art on the walls, and open, noisy space give YoSake a big city vibe.
Colder in the restaurant than outside. I think they had the ac on in January. Outside was 41, inside felt even colder.
Although we have eaten here before (my wife and I) the experience seemed fresh and new. The menu was robust and full of great options; both sushi and Asian fare. The only detraction was the proximity of your table neighbor. Conversation was not polite but rather a cacophony of jibber jabber. Should be noted our server and speed of service were above par.
The restaurant was closed! Wish the site was updated
Have been here several times and you can't beat their happy hour, but even at the reasonable price, the food is great. I get the sushi and soup, but have also enjoyed the firecracker shrimp
Very attentive staff and awesome food and drinks!
Great environment! Great food!!
Yo Sake never disappoints. They always have great food and selections. We love their sushi and menu options. We continue to go back and just live the restaurant. Highly recommended and in a great location downtown as well.
Always delicious !
Took our two kids because they love to try new foods. They both loved the sushi and the sesame seed ahi tuna appetizer was awesome!
As always, super. If I could, i would eat here for every meal.
Great place. Food is excellent. It may not have the best atmosphere but definitely high on my list for sushi.
Yo Sake has yet to disappoint us. The food is always good and the servers are very friendly. The chicken jalapeno egg rolls are one of their best food items.
Always great! One of my very favorite restaurants in Wilmington by far! And Kim is always the best waitress! We love her! All of the waitstaff is wonderful!
Yosake is always an amazing experience 😊 The atmosphere, food and service is excellent!
Yosake was great. Friendly server, very good apps and sushi, great beer selection great urban rustic interior. Will definitely go back.
Awesome as always..and OMG... the Brussels Sprouts!!! I think I saw rainbows
After Eating them! I’m a pescatarian and Ketogenic and I was able to find many things I could eat. That is rare in most restaurants!!
Excellent service. Great food.
Awesome food, service very attentive, knowledgeable of what beers/ciders in stock which ia always nice. Excellent experience we have visited Yosake 3-4 times in the past, this being the best visit yet!
We love Yo Sake for its atmosphere and good food. Happy hour is a must and such a good deal for all time favorites. Our waitress was great which is always a plus when dining out.
Good food. Good service.
The food is amazing! We were there for happy hour so we got to try lots of apps at a very reasonable price. Only draw back was there were little that’s flying around the table the whole time. So annoying when you’re trying to eat and be social. Kept on having to swat at them in convo.
Great food and great waitress
Yosake has a fun atmosphere with consistently good service and great food!
Told people a check in andc when we booked reservation that this was a wedding celebration of more than 20 years. Never mentioned by waitress. Waitress only worried about large table ( large tip) just a very disappointing anniversary dinner
Had a great night at Yo Sake. Our table was ready as soon as we walked in and the restaurant was packed!! The sushi was very good and our waitress was very nice and attentive. Will definitely be back
