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

We love to go to Uncle Yu's for dinner or nice lunch. The food is fresh and never bland or boring. The atmosphere is very nice with a vibe different from other establishments in the area. You won't be disappointed

We stopped by on a Thursday evening, around 730. The place was hopping but they got us right in. The service up until we got out food was flawless. After the food was on the table we didn't see our waiter again and had to flag down another server to pay our bill. My partner got chow mein and really... More

A friend and went stopped by on a Saturday night about 6 p.m. without a reservation. The place was packed, but we were able to get a table on the patio. The restaurant is one of the nicest in downtown Livermore and the food is consistently good. The ingredients, especially the vegetables, are fresh and not overcooked. The wine menu... More

Went on a Saturday night, we did have reservations and they got us right in. The bar was hopping. The food and service was Wonderful. The prawns with honey walnuts was incredible. Very nice evening. The only downfall is the fact that it is really loud.

We love the variations on Asian and Classic cuisines and the brilliant wine list. Try the Cabernet Sauvignon from Mia Nipote winery, it is simply fantastic.

My wife and I often go to Uncle Yu's in downtown Livermore when we want delicious and tasty Chinese food. Atmosphere and location is excellent. Service is wonderful. Cost is quite reasonable. They also offer great luncheon specials at a very cost effective price. We strongly recommend it to others.
