We enjoyed some rolls, the garlic sauce edamame was delicious and so was the nigiri.
Has been consistently good in all respects over the years. Really like that in these Covid times they've been offering music in the dinning room. Oakland Yoshi's is still an Oakland institution!
Always a good time at Yoshi's. Good food. Good vibe. Good music
A fabulous venue with a great restaurant. Probably the best Jazz Club in the USA (sorry Blue Note NYC).
Great food! Great service! Great show with Tommy Igoe!
Amazing night back at our favorite jazz club after an 18 month break. Tommy Igoe is incredible
The J Holiday show was cancelled at the last minute. Very disappointing! Food was good but not spectacular. Service was great!! The live music in the dining room was an excellent touch in lieu of the show!!
I always love eating at Yoshi's. Usually we attend a concert but tonight's show was cancelled. Instead they provided music in the dining room. Created a really nice environment.
Food was delicious and service was fantastic! However a HUGE DOWNFALL is seating placement for those of us who elect to dine in before the show!!!! Our seats were HORRIBLE! We chose to dine in to guarantee good seating. Next time we will reconsider dining at Yoshi's before the show... It seems walk ins get better choices for seating than diners.
It was nice to get back ‘out’ to a nice dinner and live music after the pandemic and lockdown. One of the reasons we move to Oakland was to be able to go out and enjoy night life, and then get home in 15 minutes. Yoshi’s has a beautiful interior and ambiance. Check-in for dinner was also check-in for the show afterwards - both ran efficiently. They specialize in Japanese fare: I had a LOT of sushi / sashimi and my wife had black cod - both fantastic. Cocktails were delicious and inventive. We passed on dessert but still paid over $200 for the two of us. The show afterwards was great fun (sold out). Super special date night at a great long-standing Oakland jazz club with excellent food quality, great service, nice ambiance, and quality entertainment.
Food was excellent, as usual. Alex, our waiter, was completely delightful. It was wonderful to be back in this great restaurant and, afterwards, enjoy a great show by Top Shelf Classics!!
Fantastic service and fantastic food
We had a wonderful time and the food was very good.
Yoshi's is a lively, delicious meal and music experience for sure! The food is very good, the staff is attentive, and the ambiance is energetic. The pre-show crowd adds a really nice energy. Not the place for a quiet, romantic dinner, or for people who are bothered by noise, it can get quite loud in the restaurant. Best miso anywhere!
I was looking at opentable and found this restaurant which has more than 6k reviews. But when you check it on Yelp it only has around 1k reviews with 3 stars. The environment was great, probably a good choice on a date or something but we went there for live music and food. Because there were a show so there isn’t any live music. The food was so-so but not worth it for a 1hour drive definitely.
Great food, great service, great show!
So happy to be in a live venue again.
So good to be back at Yoshi's. Excellent service, excellent meal, excellent show!
Incredibly convenient parking (upstairs in the same building). Agedashi tofu was delicious with a unique texture. My gindara (black cod) was thick, perfectly cooked, and well presented. The beet & mizuna salad was large and yummy. The jazz trio was talented but did not prevent conversation.
These guys have moved a loud band smack in the middle of the dining room. And forget social distancing -- the tables are no more than a few feet apart. If you like a loud, packed dining experience you may have found your Shangri La. If quiet conversation, socially distanced, is your cup of tea look elsewhere.
Delicious sushi dishes, plus more traditional fare and vegetarian selections. Excellent wine selection, and a laundry list of sake, all while listening to live jazz.
Surely not a secret, but still wondering why it took us so long to dine there again (pandemic notwithstanding).
First time dining here, food was great service was good except they forgot to bring two items but I’ll come back anyways it’s a nice place and worth to come back
The food was excellent. The music was excellent. Providing a trio in the dining room is a great idea and should be expanded to more days perhaps Wednesdays.
A very good Japanese restaurant. Service was excellent.
It was great. A lot of food. Way more than we could eat.
Always a great experience at Yoshi’s. The restaurant and concert venue perfect.
One of my favorites everything on the menu is delicious not a bad seat in the venue either
Great service & foods
My husband and I always have a great experience at Yoshi's. Food is great, staff is friendly. Anytime we are at Yoshi's for dinner and a show like last night (The Dazz Band), Yoshi's staff has always assigned us great seats (front row).
Thank you Yoshi's for the great customer service your staff provided. It definitely made my birthday (59th) a great one.
As always, this is the best sushi in the Bay Area by far. All the staff are friendly and helpful, and they made an effort to honor the birthday that we were there to celebrate - just enough, but not overboard. We always love Yoshi’s!
Isac is a good waiter and Steven is excellent Food was delicious
It was a date night. I was pleased with our meal and service. It was great to see a lot of familiar faces. I love Yoshi’s’s. We also attended the show and Yoshi’s did not disappoint.
First night out in over a year and we got to see The Dazz Band.
Ken was amazing! He was not only our waiter for dinner but he was also our waiter for the show! He works very hard and is very polite and professional. It was our first time back since COVID And it was nice to be remembered by there lady at the front desk. Unfortunately, I don’t know her name but she’s always been friendly and professional. I will have to ask her the next time I’m there. It was nice to see a familiar face. We were concerned that some of the people that we know from before might not be back. Everything was fantastic! I can’t say enough good things!
Food is good. Ambience is nice. Servers are friendly.
We love and support Yoshi's. I am always impressed with the manager who is everywhere and even lowered the volume to the dining room music without being asked.
We totally enjoyed the show! Service spotty...after COVID and huge rush.
Our server was very good. The food was good. It was very loud, especially with the
Music playing loudly overhead.
Great venue for our East Bay Soul concert. Dinner was fabulous. Will return in the future for dinner and a show.
It was so great to be able to eat in doors and enjoyed the hospitality of the service we received. Everything was yummy!
