Went here for my friends birthday dinner. Our waitress was not friendly and took a long time to get our order. We even had to flag her down for the check. Food was delicious.
Been going to Yoshi’s since I was a little girl and I always take my friends and family that visit. I even go alone. If you love music you will love Yoshi’s.
Not good for babies. The babies menu came in late. I ordered 3 steaks, I only got 2. I ordered the tempura, they did not come out with the ordered rice - they don't ask you if you want food to come out together. Food is not very good. It's mundane and not something I would pay too much on. Date maybe ok... but not romantic because it's too loud and crowded. I'm not coming back. Nothing is free here even if it's your bday. Just not happy
Had a great time. Good food & great entertainment afterwards (Angie Stone).
Hello: My wife and I went to dinner here. Unfortunately for the establishment the show was cancelled and the restaurant was not full. The sushi and salad that we had was exceptional. The Waiter was very, very pleasant and effective. We had a nice discussion with the Waiter from Peru. He was a very nice young man who was very courteous and very pleasant. We look forward to our next visit to Yoshi's. It is a real treat to yourself.
Grand time at Yoshi’s, the place, our space, the service, the food - everything! Thanks kindky, will be back soon! Cordially Gail & family 😎
service was terrible. my food was cold and they took too long to bring me another place which was equally as cold. The waiter didn't even offer to do anything to make my experience better. not even a dessert or a drink! just said "oh, that's too bad!"... the food used to be very good and the sushi was fresh. it's just so commercial now and no thought about their customers... just want to get them in and out!
Caught dinner & a show. Love that you can dine and have them save your seats. Service is super fast so you never have to worry about missing the show. Dessert & drink service during the performance is a perk. Love that I can bring my kids to this venue.
Great waitress and great show, but they need some help with the sound for the show.
Flawless experience as always.
I go to Yoshi’s for the musical acts! The food is mediocre and high priced ~ however to get a good seat for the concerts, you have to eat in restaurant or at the bar.
Very organized for people who go to music events after dinner in terms of seat allocation. Except sushi and sashimi options, many choices are which do not require so much workload in the kitchen and are less healthy. I would suggest that they switch to more healthy options like braised fish and pork.
From dinner to the show, the experience the six of us had was wonderful. I was the only one who had been to Yoshi's, so I knew, but my friends did not and they all stated that their experience was through the roof! Our food was delicious, and special note: please make sure Oleta Adams ALWAYS comes back to Yoshi's. I have always been a fan, and she puts on an amazing show. Thank you Yoshi's...we will definitely repeat our visit.
Yoshi's didn't disappoint. The people were great from the greeters upon entering to the entire wait staff. Our waitress was Selena. They all made our journey to Yoshi's one big, pleasant memory we shall always cherish!
Restaurant menu is limited and hasn't changed in a long time, but items are well cooked and presented. There are good fish options - a big plus! But the prices are high for a modest portion with no accompaniments. The convenience of dining there and reserving a seat for the show is what makes it good, but next time I go to a show there I'll save money and eat elsewhere.
Have dinner and they will reserve your seats for the show.
They have good food in the show room too, but limited menu.
We always eat here before the show and find enough choices to keep the group satisfied. The strength is the seafood off the grill: Bass and Cod in particular. They were both delicate and well spiced and we appreciated the sides. We had to get the attention of the server now and then, but overall, we felt well served. The rollout from the kitchen was uneven; i was almost finished with my food before my husband had his.
Awesome service, food and music. Had a great time!
It was great.
Yoshi’s food was good enough, the Uní was spectacular(my favorite) service was slow. The ambiance was good, but the noise level was very high.. difficult to have a conversation.
The music after dinner with Omar Sosa was a delightful sensory experience!!
The food was good! I particularly liked the vegetable tempura and sushi. The menu encourages sharing. Great meal with wonderful entertainment.
Great venue!!!!!!!!! We go here often for dinner and show.
I had the miso sauce blackcod. I prefer the traditional marinated misosauce grilled blackcod.
Spur of the moment drive from Chico. We stay at the Waterfront and walk over. Great date !
Friendly, informative service and creative takes on sushi combinations made this a great experience. Everything we ordered was delicious!
One caveat for those attending the concert before or after dining: order whatever you want the first (and only) time the waiter comes by. We did not understand, and the waiter during the concert did not make clear, that there would not be a second chance.
The dinner + concert experience is great. You get checked as soon you arrive the restaurant. We ordered the Sea Bass, it was delicious. For the time we tried Lobster Roll we enjoyed, I never had sushi rolls before. I will probably return there to try more options from the menu.
Good for date night. After a nice meal you can take in world class jazz or, if it’s warm, walk in Jack London Square.
We had a wonderful meal here before a jazz performance at Yoshi's Jazz Club. We ordered a variety of dishes and shared everything. Every dish was great, but especially the salmon. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Japanese cuisine.
We went there for a concert. The restaurant was nice, and servers were professional. And we enjoyed the concert. Will return for another concert
we love coming to yoshi's for the music and Eliane Elias was great. we enjoyed the food and our server Francisco was most pleasant, helpful and efficient!
We had a very nice time and will be back. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the restaurant. We had one question as to why they served Hess white and not the red wine. We also attended the concert after our meal.
Thanks for an enjoyable evening.
See you soon...
I enjoyed my first experience dining and live musical performance at Yoshi's In Oakland, California's, Jack London Square. Convenient parking, Welcoming manager, and clean restroom. Great wine selection.
Had dinner before a show. Dinner is always good. Ordered the Brocollini and it was fantastic!!
We attend concerts at Yoshi's several times a year because of the great service, quality, and intimacy of the venue. It's a favorite!!
Visited from Colorado. The food and the venues are always great....had an awesome time.
Our server Linda was a sweetheart. She was patient with my wife and I. Linda offered nice desert as well as nice wine selections. Linda made our evening relaxing. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
This is high on my list of one of my favorite restaurants ever. I can tell that thought, creativity and care went into everything...from the deliciously prepared items on the menu, to the personality of the staff, to the lovely decor and the talented performers. Perfect for that special night out or as many nights of the year as you can afford to enjoy here... worth every penny :)
The food is good and so are the portion sizes. My original waiter brought us water then never came back. Fortunately the waitress who waited on my sister and I when we were there for anther show in December was there and she took over our table. She was great!
Fir the size of then venue and the number of people coming through to eat and or see a show there are not enough sinks and counter space in the ladies room. And the counter is ALWAYS wet you cannot sit anything on it and there are no paper towels to dry the counter and I have never seen staff come in and clean it. The ladies room needs and upgrade!
The food at Yoshi's is good not great. I tend to eat the sushi & finger/bar foods. I come to Yoshi's for the music not the food. If you eat at the restaurant you get seats (randomly) reserved for you in the music venue. The food is worth eating to get the reservation and not a waste of your money. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the scene is vibrant and full of colorful people that you would expect from the Bay Area.
Asian Fusion with options for all. Perfect for pre Yoshi’s show. Great Appetizers - Scallop risotto superb.
