Definitely eat here if you are going to see a show

The jazz is great at Yoshi's and you definitely want to eat at the restaurant if you see a show. It guarantees you a seating and is there are no worries about rushing to get in. The food is good and it makes for a great, complete, evening.

Sadly Yoshi's in SF has closed so now Tommy and gang are the resident band in Oakland. each member of the band is a genius by themselves and together they take music to a new level. Tommy is the best drummer I've ever seen and we go to their shows as often as we can. you'll LOVE them!

Had a decent meal which included some sushi and a nicely cooked pork chop. Wouldn't say it's the best sushi I've ever had, but it's still good and I'd go back, particularly since there aren't a lot of other options within the Oakland area. Jazz club side of the joint seemed to be fairly busy so that's a good sign.

Had a GREAT meal. Everything was excellent. The sushi, sashimi, tempura, and spinach salad were all great!!! We also enjoyed a very entertaining and intimate jazz concert.

Yoshi has to be one of the best small venue R&B sets in the USA. A consistent line up of great artists and wonderful setting. The food is adequate, service is efficient, but the entertainment is what makes the difference. We saw Anthony David and Algebra Blessett and they were awesome!

We came to see Kenny G. and sighed up for dinner so we can have assigned seats before the show. I orders a sushi roll and it was excellent, but my date ordered a chicken dish and it was just OK. That's why I gave it 4 stars. Out waitress gave us wrong seats so when we went to see... More

This is a very nice Japanese-style restaurant. Its main attraction is that is has a night club attached that books great jazz musicians. We eat there periodically and always have a good meal. For authentic Japanese food there are other places that are less "fancy" and more "home-style" cooking. This is a good place and also at the location of... More

Our last-minute date night was going to a Sergio Mendes show at Yoshi's Jazz Club in Oakland. We took the ferry from SF and it took us directly to Jack London Square, really convenient. After reading the article about the demise of their SF location, I thought it best to go to the one in Oakland just in case the... More

Remarkable meal and service. Moderate price. And if you have time you can listen to some great music afterwards. Highly recommended.
