We had a nice dinner and everyone liked their meal. It is not a out of this world place for food, but it was good and fairly priced.

Our favorite 'go-to' restaurant in Toronto. For very special occasions, if we are in Toronto, we visit Yamato. We have never had a bad experience. From good tapanyaki chefs to prompt service.......the place has it all. The one minor sticking point: we have a difficulties if we include anyone not totally mobile. (The restaurant is a half floor down with... More

Both regular and tapanyaki cuisines are available. The service is prompt and very friendly. The "sushi pizza" is innovative and delicious. Shirashi and temprua udon were excellent. The view is limited (Yamato is a half story walkdown) but this is definitely a winner. Plan to comeback when in Yorkville.

I have never seen such a great onion volcano. It had a very high flame for an extended period. It was pretty cool. Also dinner was very nice. I had the steak and lobster. The staff was very attentive to my dietary requirements too. It was a nice time. I would say it was a little bit loud in there... More

Got tired of the boutiquey restaurants and teenagers deconstructing plated "farm to table meals" for me in Yorkville; we came here for a sushi/udon noodle soup dinner and enjoyed it very much. Found the sushi to be quite good; don't know what the fuss is about the décor; prices were more than reasonable, wait staff was extremely friendly, no muss,... More

First time we've been here for dinner and it's indeed a good option for a Japanese restaurant in the Yorkville area. Price is reasonable, service is friendly, atmosphere is welcoming for a summer night... nothing special, but a great place to get together and have some good Jap food.

This was my first time at Yamato and there were three of us for lunch. We decided to eat at a tappanyaki table. The food and service were good but our chef didn't have any pizzazz. Usually at this time of meal you watch the chef do his thing but not the case here, we went back to our conversation... More

Tonight, the service was terrible. I had to ask for hot sauce 4x before I got It. Our drinks were empty for about a half hour till I finally got a servers attention to get us another round. The food was tasteless, and unlike before, fried rice is an extra $5, that comes "with" your meal.... Normally, when you go... More

I highly recommend this place, I've Been here half a dozen times, and the food has not disappointed. I always get the imperial and If you enjoy steak and seafood combo i recommend it. It is also nice because it's located right in yorkville and you can stroll around after as the area is very nice.

Not only is the food excellent, but the service and entertainment factor receive high marks.The food has so much flavour and chefs are so entertaining (they cook right in front of you and they have fun doing so). My husband and I were there for a date and years later, we took our son for his 6th birthday. He had... More
