Fresh and good quality food cooked with a very creative Chinese cooking style with local favor. Goat Cheese crab meat wonton is absolutely a masterpiece. Fry calamari was made with dry red pepper which stimulate your taste bug, a best starter to go with a glass of white wine. Nice decor, a fine dinning atmosphere offer a different dining experience...

Fun dinner! It wasn't your typical Chinese restaurant at all! We went with a group of six for a family birthday celebration. Everyone decided to do their 3 course dinner with the wine pairings. The owner personally served us the wines and explained the choices. Interesting and informative! Food was pretty good though not at all Chinese style at our... More

I posted a review a week or so ago about how PJ Chang's had traded in quality to be a big franchise chain. Uncle Yu's is the new King. Absolutely delicious entrees.....but at a premium price. For us...dinner for 2 and a few drinks, $100 plus tip! Yikes, we can't do that every week.

After reading the reviews here we selected this restaurant to go to with several co workers visiting the area. Our experience was not the same as the raves on this site - very disappointing. Co worker received a glass with lipstick on it, which was returned and replaced. No apologies. When a second drink was ordered later it appeared to... More

This may be our best dining experience in a Chinese restaurant ever. Uncle Yu’s is a rare breed, Chinese fine dining paired with an exceptional (Wine Spectator award winning) wine list. There even is a Chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings. The menu contains some spectacular dishes not usually found on an Asian based menu. One example is the BBQ... More

Very nice place to eat in downtown Livermore. Food is dependable and of good quality if not the most imaginative. The wine list, with plenty of local gems, is reason enough to visit. Service is a bit spotty, veering between over and under attentive, but not so much so as to be a distraction. Have eaten here several times and... More

I use this as my go-to restaurant when friends and family come into town or a client dinner. The food is consistently well-prepared and delicious. Reservations are recommended on Friday and Saturday evenings as it can get busy and I have found myself looking for another destination when I did not have a time booked ahead of schedule. They have... More

This was a spur of the moment decision. Being a week night, we were able to be seated outside (again, this is my favorite) immediately. Somewhat unusual (not for wine country) they offer flights of wine, so we ordered flights and appetizers followed by soup and dessert. After several appetizers were didn't need dinner. The dessert menu was fabulous, but... More

The atmosphere is wonderful - the owners always remember our son and are very friendly! The food is fantastic and the desserts are great too! They have the biggest wine selection in the East Bay!
