The food and service at Yuba are always quite good. It is usually fairly quiet, too, and I appreciate that. This time, however, Yuba was rather noisy. It's a fairly small restaurant, and two noisy tables made the whole restaurant "energetic," to say the least. Too bad, as that level of noise made the whole dining experience less pleasant.

The part that bothered me most was being told by a waiter your table is only 2 hours after I booked a reservation and my party could not all arrive at the same time due to train delays and we weren’t going to stay there but to be reminded killed it for me. I am not accustom to that it felt like I was stereotyped.

We’ve always liked Yuba. The food is very good, and service is friendly end efficient. However, I would warn against letting the chef design your plate. With very little wine and no cocktails, our tab for four surprised us at nearly $400.

We added a third person to our res, and wasn't sure if Yuba could accommodate. When I arrived, they offered us seats at the bar, which I wasn't as enthused about. When the other members of my party arrived, the Yuba staff accommodated us by giving us an actual 4 person table, making the experience much more positive! Very glad for that service, and the sushi is always delicious.

My friend's roll was "the best" she had ever had and my black miso cod was plentiful and excellent. Yuba is a quiet, unassuming, moderately priced restaurant with delicious food and attentive service. My friend also had the freshly made vegetable dumplings--yum!

Great place for a quick bite. The food was good but not spectacular. We ordered a few rolls. The vegetable roll was really good and the rest were standard. Service was great... staff were very attentive and friendly.

This is a wonderfully creative and delicious place to eat. Most of their creations are spectacular and it is very well priced. Pleasant and simple decor but inviting. We were disappointed by our shrimp tempura which was not crisp and wonderful but a bit soggy. Recommendation would be to stick to the rolls, sushi and sashimi which are all excellent This was our fourth visit and it has been totally splendid every time.

For the money it may be the best sushi in the neighborhood. It always seems very good, the fish always buttery soft and fresh. And the servers take time to identify everything on the plate.

VERY SPECIAL AND EXOTIC CHOICES OF SUSHI--ABSOLUTELY RIVALS THE BEST QUALITY AND TASTE SENSATION OF SUSHI I HAVE EVER HAD. SERVICE WAS EXTREMELY ATTENTIVE. ALSO, OFFERED CHOICES OF FISH I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE--BARRACUDA? REALLY? BLACK TRUFFLE SLICES ATOP OTHER FISH CHOICES. THIS IS A TRUE UNDER THE RADAR PLACE. AMBIANCE IS NOTHING SPECIAL, AND IT'S NOT CHEAP, BUT IF IT'S DELICIOUS AND UNIQUE SUSHI OFFERINGS YOU WANT, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG HERE. WOW.

Went here on a whim with a friend. Came in for the sushi and was amazed at the service. The food was incredible as well. My friend and I decided to try the soup dumplings, yakitori, grilled marinated Toro, and 12-piece Omakase. All of the food was delicious, but the best part really was our amazing server and Jack our sushi chef who made the experience truly amazing.

Pleasantly surprised by how great the sushi was. Unfortunately I forget the names of the signature rolls we ordered but they were both very good! One of them had spicy tuna and jalapeno - it was delicious.
