We just love to go here for date night!

My wife and I just love to go here, whether for a special occasion, or just a quite date night. We are always warmly welcomed. My wife loves their Tempura Vegetables. I generally go for one of their beef dinners (Negimaki or Sukiyaki), with soup and salad. We ordered spring rolls last night for an... read more

Honestly, I was hoping and praying that I didn't get food poisoning. This was the worst sashimi and sushi I have ever had, you are better off getting it at the grocery store. The manager was nice but nice doesn't make the food quality better and when you are messing around with raw fish you really need to be careful.... More

The service here was perfect! I truly felt welcomed. However, the food was just OK. Pork dumplings, miso soup, and chicken teriyaki were good, but the hibachi, the sushi rolls, and the shrimp fried rice all left more to be desired. Probably won't return...

We go out to sushi places A LOT (my fiance is Japanese) and this is by far the best place we have been to. The food is authentic and traditional. And they are the only place that I can find that has a garlic tuna roll (delicious!). The waitress/chef know us and always chat with us. They are very sweet... More

We have never been disappointed when visiting this restaurant. Service is quick and friendly and the sushi is always fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend Yokohama to anyone.

Horrible sushi and rude service. The sushi I received was way overlooked and the rice was tough. When I informed the waitress (who never checked on us and I had to ask another waitress to ask her to come to our table) she basically acted like I was wrong and didn't know what I was talking about. When I told... More

I went here for ramen. The menu says fresh ramen. Not a specific style of ramen which immediately alarmed me. Although the service was good and the owner and waiter were freindly the ramen was below aub par. It was no better than what I make at home and no where near authentic. It seemed to be just a bunch... More

This was the best Japanese food we have had since leaving Japan in 1988. The service and food were excellent. We will be back.

So far we've been more than pleased with Yokohama. We're not fans of sushi so we can't rave on what the other reviewers are mentioning, but their other dishes that we've tried are among the best that we've found since moving down here. The chicken katsu is great and not over-fried or overdone, my wife loves the miso soup and... More
