This is my family’s “go to” restaurant. Every time my daughter is in town we must stop at Yo Sake. The wait staff is always personable andusually play along with my husband’s silly sense of humor 😉 This visit was no different.
LOVE the happy hour menu but we always seem to try at least one new thing. Tonight it was Fire on the Mountain and my daughter was not disappointed. We always start out with the crab dip. Tonight it had just the right amount of spice.
Left happy as always!

Yo Sake is awesome. Make sure to go for the Happy Hour from 5-7- they have a ton of things on special and it is such a good deal for really good sushi.

This is a great restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food is what other similar restaurants are measured by.

I have been to Yosake several times now and the food is incredible. I was there last weekend for a girl's weekend dinner and I always bring out of town guests to Yosake. Unfortunately, even with a reservation we had to wait 15 minutes and our service was horrible the entire meal, and not once did our waitress apologize. As a former server I find this disappointing and makes me second guess returning, especially with guests.

We didn't get drinks for 30 minutes then it was just water.

The blueberry mojito was all sprite, no rum.

The "pimp shrimp" had rock hard cold shrimp, the sweet and sour chicken was mushy and the forbidden rice had an offputting flavor unlike other times I've had it.

The sushi bowl was bland and flavorless and the sticky rice was mushy not sticky as advertised.

The waitress was great and did the best she could but overall we won't be going back again, which is sad and it has highly recommended to us by a friend and person who visited frequently.

Very good. A bit crowded and a little loud. Food great as always! Sashimi melts in your mouth. Crispy salmon over black forbidden rice is wonderful!
