Yoshi's has a restaurant with tasty Japanese cuisine and a wonderful music venue. Fine sound system. Every seat in the house has a clear view of the stage. Our group of 12 was entertained by master guitarists Ken Emerson and Jim Kimo West with Kimo's...More

I love Sushi and Jazz so this was perfect. Not an uptight place but very fancy. Food was on point and not super pricey for Sushi.

My lady and I went to Yoshi's last Sunday and had a wonderful time. We saw a local comedian Mark Curry who made us laugh so hard we couldn't breathe LOL. The showtime appetizers where delicious and they had great beers on tap. Reasonably priced...More

This Place has great food, and drinks nice atmosphere and Comedy Night with Arnez J, was too funny. Came in town for a family reunion, and Comedy night was included in the visit, This little area is very nice and have a little shopping area.

Good music in a horrible crowded place. Be ready to be pushed and shoved by the rude staff trying to accommodate as many people as possible at your own table. Greed is an ugly thing.

Just saw Keiko Matsui there and really enjoyed ourselves...very quaint setting, with a bar and restaurant all in the same building. We had dinner there, and it was excellent. Hope to return very soon.

I made an almost last minute reservation to see the Taj Mahal Trio at the 10 p.m. show on a Friday night. For convenience, we decided to dine at the restaurant, and it was a good decision. It was ridiculously easy to park, dine, relax,...More

OK let me start by saying that I have visited Yoshi's a couple of previous times and given them excellent reviews, but an establishment is only as good as it's current state of affairs. A friend and I bought tickets to see the original Drifters...More

Since it is cabaret style seating I would imagine they can remove a chair or two to make room for a wheelchair. If you dine in the restaurant before the show you get reserved seating. I would call them directly and ask.
