We usually go for the half price menuwhich is offered Monday -Friday 5pm-7pm. It's decent. It includes some appetizers, sushi rolls and such. By no means does it begin to cover their expansive menu. The crab dip is wonderful. The firecracker shrimp is delicious although the spiciness varies visit to visit. The satay appetizers are good, nice grill flavor. Our... More

I have been to Yo Sake several times over recent years, and have never been disappointed. This visit was no exception. The menu offers something for all taste preferences, from spicy, to sushi, to grilled. While everything was good for our group of five, the highlight was dessert. They have yummy peanut butter wontons dipped in chocolate and served with... More

Downtown Wilmington is full of fun for our Fri/Sat nights out downtown. Yosake has great sushi and great service. We dine here occasionally whether its just the two of us or out on the town with friends. You will not be disappointed!

I went to Yo Sake for the half price sushi from 5-7. The firecracker shrimp was definitely my favorite. It's worth going just for that. Everything else was not very exciting. I got the spicy tuna role, which was tiny and looked like sushi from a grocery store. However, it was cheaper than sushi from a grocery store, so that... More

Ordered the farmhouse roll. Highly recommend. Not a lot of interesting sushi options out there generally for a vegetarian, well this roll got my attention. Great combination of fresh ingredients wrapped in delicate avocado topped with a sweet and heat light sauce. So good.....

Had the pleasure to share the Yo Sake experience for the 3rd time last weekend, this visit with three sushi consuming friends. As always, everything was fresh, beautifully prepared, and professionally presented. Good food should be the cost of entry for any restaurant. The true differentiator is service, and Yo Sake does not disappoint. The hostess Erin was professional, personable,... More

We always sit at the bar and enjoy watching the chefs prepare the food. The atmosphere of the restaurant is outstanding with it's music, lighting, and décor. The food is delicious and they have the BEST specials in town. From 5-7 they offer a half-price menu that is outstanding. If you enjoy spicy, be sure to order a side of... More

The food was delicious, the firecracker shrimp are amazing! If I were rating on food alone..it would have been 5 stars. HOWEVER- our waiter was terrible. He never introduced himself or said more than 3 worda at a time...not to mention he took forever to get our drink and food orders. I said "you can get these 2 glasses if... More

Let me first say that I am not a fan of sushi or at least was not a fan. Slowly changing that. I have dined here twice & it gets better everytime. I had the Pimp Shrimp and the salad special (tomatoes, cukes, goat cheese,green peppers) + a tuna roll. All excellent. Aside from the the good food, Love the... More

YoSake has a great 1/2 price appetizer and sushi menu everyday from 5-7. The Firecracker Shrimp is delicious. The food and service where top notch. The sushi was fresh and tasty. Great local, trendy place!
