Good - but not sure what all the fuss is about

I have eaten here a couple of times over the last year with colleagues and while the food is pretty good and certainly better than a run of the mill American Chinese restaurant, it is not much like real Chinese food still. So when you order pot sticker dumplings and they come with a very heavy... read more

We had a small window to dine (one hour - hated to cut it so close, but it happened...). Our server took care of us - 3 courses paired with wine - all good! We will return. The atmosphere is superb - we sat outside, but could tell that the inside dining was very "up town".

This place has amazing asian food and lots of local wine. Went with a big group and they paired our meal with wine right from Livermore. Great place to hang out.

Wonderful dining experience whether intimate, group, couple, sit-down or at bar. Every time it is consistent and delightful from service to quality and taste. If you get a chance sit ask Nick to come over (owner and Sommelier) and pair your food of choice with one of the myriad of unique wine offerings he has.

A bit pricey, but food and service are fantastic. Make sure together reservations if going on weekends. One of the best in Livermore

Uncle Yu's Chinese Restaurant delivers consistently exceptional food and service in a refined, upscale environment. The menu is extensive, and offers most of the traditional favorites as well as some creative additions. The mixed dumpling appetizer is excellent. Entrée choice really depends on personal taste, I prefer the seafood dishes. Another strength of the restaurant is its very extensive wine... More

Simply the best restaurant in Livermore. The service, cleanliness, wine list and food are all top notch. We love the cashew chicken, Orange chicken and the jalapeno lobster appetizer. Nick the "wine specialist" always picks out a great wine in our budget to enjoy with the menu. Don't forget to order the exotic mamba with some bubbles for dessert -... More

most noteworthy is the impressive wine list! I don't know of another Chinese restaurant with such an impressive wine list, quite appropriately with a very strong showing of white wines from all regions of the world. Food, atmosphere and service are extremely good and make for a special dinner

This was my first visit. The greeter, waiter and bartender were very friendly. I was very comfortable sitting at a table in the bar. The place was elegant. Nice selection of wines. I picked a Cab. I had the pot stickers-very nicely done. My waiter recommended the orange chicken and white rice. I was extremely pleased. Very nice Chinese restaurant... More
