Went there before a show. Their appetizers are very good. Try their tofu appetizer - it is really superb. The other dishes were also very good. It is a family style event. We all share the dishes. Very good wine selection Had their Martini with a tough of ginger. Very good. Worth going there for dinner

In addition to the restaurant serving a wide variety of good Japanese dishes, they offer an adjacent caberet style performance place with top notch entertainers.

I wouldn't call this place a sushi bar, they do have sushi but limited. To us it was a 200$ disappointment. We had 6 rolls and 2 non-sushi items, we ate it all. It was okay, but nothing special. One glass of wine and we left full but not over full in the least, and for 200$ you should be... More

Whenever we go to a show at Yoshi's we have dinner there as well. Food is consistently good, service excellent, and the jazz club superb. Easy parking nearby makes all of this a wonderful evening.

Party if 5 seated immediately. Recommended by colleague, also in our party. Restaurant setting was classy. Started with tiger shrimp appetizer and free edamame. 5 different rolls including rainbow, 49ers , geisha. All exceptionally good. Server was attentive and knowledgeable about menu.

Came here last minute and was able to get a table for two. They offer dinner with a show or just dinner. Our servers were very attentive and polite. The food is delicious we ordered a lot for two but ate almost everything 😝 I recommend coming here.

Came here just for dinner as we didn't have time to watch the show. Food was pretty good but pricey and come in small portions. The sashimi was fresh, and kobe beef skewers were pretty good. Lobster tempura rolls were kinda bland for me. Will try to catch the show next time we come here for dinner.

Yoshi's music is the best, however the restaurant prices are quite high for the portions you receive. Eat somewhere else before the music unless you just want snacks.
