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

What a great surprise for us on our first of many visits to come. Food and service was excellent. My wifeand I shared a Shashimi dinner that was perfect. Our servers were always on time with helping us with everything. We loved the quaintness of the size too. Well decorated to please the eyes. The owners are genuine and super... More

As soon as my husband and I walked in, we determined we made a good choice for date night. The atmosphere and service were wonderful and the food was excellent. Great place for a quiet dinner out for excellent food and reasonable price.

Me and my wife frequent Yokohama ALOT, not only because the sushi is phenomenal, but because the service is even better ( Even if we dont eat here for 2 months, they still remember us by name). If in the area and looking for sushi, dont hesitate, this is the best little place around.
