Wonderful food, great service.

Love Uncle Yu's. We moved to Livermore from San Ramon and always had a great experience there. The Livermore location has lived up to that and more. We have gone for both special dinners like New Year's Eve with a large party and more casual meals on our own. The wait staff is always very kind... read more

This is not your average Chinese restaurant. You don't get a dinner with 50 fried items. You get a fresh, very well made item and enjoy the item you order. We sometimes will order 3 items and share. I highly recommend the Sinagpore rice noodles!

I know folks rave about this place but I don't get it. Rather mediocre Chinese food, particularly for the price. There are several other similar restaurants for better value and much better quality. Have tried this a few times just to be fair and still come up with the same "meh" impression.

This is my second visit to Uncle Yu and I was even more impressed this trip. The dim sum included some usual favorites spring rolls were to die for! Also the Thai dim sum with shrimp in chicken in a light yellow curry broth with corn was amazing! But as a wine drinker, I really appreciate how many and varied... More

Good bar and excellent food. This is the best Chinese food in the Tri-Valley. Try the Vanilla Prawns, they are the best.

This is a go-to restaurant for us in Livermore. They have gluten -free options (those with Celiac may need to check for cross-contamination) and we do enjoy the chicken broth enhanced rice and chicken and vegetables as a healthy alternative to greasy food at other restaurants. The wine list seems pretty impressive and the bar staff seems knowledgeable and are... More

Outstanding atmosphere, lively and loud. Great service and even better food. Our server recommended a great local wine. The food was simply delicious. General Tso's chicken was tender and extremely flavorful. It was a little pricey for Chinese food but a great evening.

I hit Uncle Yu's on a whim after walking through the busy downtown resturaunt district of Livermore on a Saturday night. I spied a seat at the bar and took it. My martini was well shaken and stirred without a drop out of place. I ordered duck--I always have duck at Asian resturaunts--it came promptly despite the crowd, and it... More

I have had a gift card for this restaurant for some time but never used it until last Saturday. One of our very close friends was having a 65 birthday and I wanted to do something special for her. I told her we had two gift cards for two restaurants and choose which one she would like to go to.... More

This review is for a To Go order. I normally order from Uncle Yu's in San Ramon, since it's on my way home from work. I recently ordered from Uncle Yu's in Livermore. I was shocked when the bill was significantly higher compared to San Ramon AND you don't get as much food. My husband mentioned when I handed him... More
