There's a reason we choose this restaurant for celebrating our birthdays: the sushi is a step better than anywhere else. End of story. Or so we thought. This time the two of us were seated at a small table next to a larger one that was set for a party/special event. We were enjoying the excellent cocktails (we don't usually... More

We have been going to "Anna's" since she opened. Our sons have worked there during high school (one son went onto a culinary career of his own), so we saw how she runs a tight ship inside and out. YZ has catered many memorable occasions ("Anna, sushi for 12, you decide the selection, just no eel or squid, pick up... More

Anna - the chef, is an amazing cook that runs an even more amazing restaurant and she is a prize winning engineer as well. This is VERY popular, so don't try to get in without reservations. It is not inexpensive, but the food is all worth it.

We overheard the people nearby saying they had a 7 pm reservation and were still waiting to be seated. The maitre d' then said it's... More

It can be hard to get a table on the weekend..so make a reservation!!! Well worth it. I am not always a fan of sushi but when it is as fresh and creatively prepared as this I can not get enough.The owner makes sauces from scratch.

Y-Z is my favorite restaurant. Anna is a wonderful hostess. Always order the Napoleon salad. I'm never disappointed.

I've been coming here since they opened. The sushi and sashimi are very fresh and the presentation is a treat for the eyes. The fusion dishes are a wonderful blend of flavors and Anna is always creating new ones. Yama nachos are a great way to start a meal.

We're from the area and have tried a number of Sushi places in the surrounding towns and Yama is our favorite. Nice atmosphere, great service and of course really, really delicious food. Lots of interesting choices and all have been great.

Can't beat the quality of the sushi served at Yama's. Outstanding food and great service. Place may be a little cramped, but adds to the atmosphere. Is a little quieter on a weeknight. It really is one of the best restaurants in the area. The drinks are fantastic, too.

This is a small restaurant serving mostly sushi. The food is unbelievably good. Service is very friendly. Tables are crowded together but what it might be lacking in atmosphere it certainly makes up for with the cuisine. Reservations HIGHLY recommended.
