I have been a fan of Yoshi's for many years. I first came for the music, but now come for the food and the music. Every item on the menu is delicious. The staff is great. And the music they serve up is always fun.

perfect pairing of dinner and a show- and you get the best seats in the house for the show. Its some of the best sushi in the east bay. The non - sushi entrees are excellent as well.

Elegant, awesome service and a terrific menu. We always dine here before a show! We have been coming to this restaurant/shows for 25 years plus! It is a wonderful destination when out of town guests are visiting!

Food, service and cocktails were great. Superb venue for music, not a bad seat in the house. Close your eyes, this is just what your imagination think a Jazz venue should be.

In a venue that could be excused for less quality of food as they are a jazz club, the food here is consistently delicious with a menu that changes as various products become available. If you are going to a show at Yoshi's this is...More

I would make a dinner reservation for 6pm in the main dining room. Just let your server know that you will be attending a 730 show.

No, not that I'm aware of. I've been to the Oakland and San Francisco airport many times and have never seen it at either one.
