This is a great venue with great music and would be a 5-star review if not for the transparent efforts of management to get us to spend more even if that means enjoying the music less. The first annoying effort to get you to part with your hard-earned cash starts with their policy of giving you better seats if you... More

We saw Najee in the first row. Nice intimate theater. If you want best seating have dinner at Yoshi's and you get first pick on seats.

Classy Jazz venue in downtown Oakland, walking distance from city centre. Saw Jeanette Harris Band, a Califorian saxplayer and lot of the audience was local, apparently. Special atmosphere, that night. Venue was friendly, well set up and the sushi was excellent as well.

It's really as close to being perfect as it could be. It's easy to get to, the parking is right above, so no worries about the car, it looks very cozy inside, the food is excellent! Great dishes, very consistent delivery and presentation - you can be sure that every time and every one will always get a great meal.... More

Love this place for good music in an intimate setting, hard to get a bad seat. The food is expensive, but we have found things we love and feel are worth the expense!

The Japanese love American Jazz! So what better combo that a first-class Japanese Restaurant together with a first-class music showroom? Yoshi's is just that. With easy access from San Francisco, Oakland, and the Silicon Valley (San Jose and south bay) the restaurant is always busy and the stage attracts both top name acts and up and coming live music.

What's not to like about Yoshi's which is a cozy and intimate place for shows? Tonight we were there to see Sergio Mendes and I had placed a phone order on Tuesday but somehow, either I reserved the wrong night and time or the woman at the box office reserved the wrong night and time! So when I arrived to... More
