The food was just not tasty, poor quality or undercooked. Staff were very good and drinks tasty, but I just couldn't recommend it.
Awesome followup on our reservation request. On arrival, great ambiance, attentive /friendly service, great recommendations, incredible food. Everyone in our party loved it!
For the price, I was not impressed with Yusho and will not go back. The service was great however, so I'm thinking the almost empty dining room on a Friday night was directly related to the value.
Food was great, but service was really slow to get a drink. Had to wait a good 10-15 minutes at our table to get a drink. Then our glasses stayed empty for 15-20 minutes. Otherwise server was very knowledgeable.
I've been to Yusho twice before and when I went on Saturday the menu had changed.
Some old favorites were still on the menu but, things like the pickles and the flank steak seemed tired and in need of a revision themselves. I like the cocktails and Sake choices but I think I've gone to Yusho for the last time.
Try their second fried chicken and king trumpet mushrooms.
Really wanted to love this place. Service was great but the food just wasn't for us.
we had a great birthday dinner here for my boyfriend. Wonderful food and service. Cocktails were very delicious. We were seated at our table right away. Food came out quickly and we were very stuffed. What a great meal.
Just a great meal, staff was very pleasant. Will definitely be back!!
Ramen battle was excellent as always!
The food was overpriced for what it was: Mediocre.
The food and service were phenomenal as usual. I will definitely be back.
Delicious!!! The food is so good, the drinks (and japanese whiskey) is out of control good, the saki selection is amazing, the ramen is so good (we tried 4 different ones), we had the best time!
Great ambiance, great food, great drinks. The decor is super cute and the music was good. On the pricey side. Definitely recommend trying this little gem!
As with every time I have been to Yusho everything was incredible. The food is creative, inventive and remarkably good. Service is always attentive and personable without being overbearing . One of my all time favorites in Chicago.
Please open an Pilsen location!
we were lucky enough to attend for a ramen battle and the food and drinks were fantastic! service was great, loved it all!
We made it for our second Ramen Battle. Every 4th Sunday of the month, two guest chefs lock horns for top ramen bragging rights. As an out of tower, I am always surprised when there is not a line around the block. This place seems to a Nucleus of the Chicago food scene.
We happened to dine at a Michelin starred restaurant on Friday. One of our favorite things to do when traveling is to ask our servers where they would go the following day. If you want an "in" on any local food scene ask a server.....anyway we ask and he says, "there is this Asian place on Kedzie doing amazing stuff...". As luck would have it I already had my reservation at the bar where we could watch the magic unfold.....
I have to compliment all of the staff. We stopped off the blue line on our way to the airport. The hostess was more than happy to help us find a place to stow our bags. When choosing our drinks, my wife really likes her red wine at cellar temps. The staff gladly chilled the wine to the temperature she liked.
I've eaten here twice and each time the food has been inspired an amazing. I love watching the care this group puts into their fare. The discussions of how much rice to put in a bowl, how long to grill a dish, how to season, etc. It is clear that this staff is working here for much more than to collect a check.
My wife and I finished our dinner and we're enjoying a cocktail while watching Yusho's normal chef, Eric Lees, work as an expediter for this special event. I commented to him that if I was opening a restaurant he'd be the first person I'd hire. He was just smooth in everything he did; from handling the orders, to explaining to assistants how he wanted dishes plated, to recognizing when a minor spill needed to be cleaned up. He had the whole group working as a real team.
If you haven't dinned at this Logan Square gem, make it a point to get there. I hope to get back there soon...maybe even late on a Saturday ;-)..... a story for another review!
Waiter was a jerk and the portions and quality were poor.
Chef Eric delivered a stellar Valentine's Day menu, and GM Emily and the team created a fun, romantic atmosphere for couples and single diners alike! I always have a wonderful experience at Yusho! :)
Was not impressed by the service or the waiter pressuring us to order more than what we were willing to eat. I used to really enjoy Yusho but now I would not recommend it. You can get much better service somewhere else!
