“Music, Food and Nice Cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Went to see Gypsy jazz last week and had great appetizers with a friend from out of town. The cocktails were nice but the high stools were not very comfortable, you kept sliding off them or had to sit awkwardly to stay in place.

“Quality music and quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

A staple of the Bay Area. If you need to catch some new artists, or see some of your old favs up close and personal, Yoshi's is a great venue to do to so. They open room for bands for which you can dance with, or sit for a nice listening experience.

“Great food and entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Yoshi's is not the best sushi restaurant in the Bay Area but it serves high quality food and has great entertainment. It also offers a wide range of choices and is more than just a Sushi bar. Yoshi's is also big enough to accommodate many diners and so you never have to wait long (a problem at many sushi bars here) or be told to come back some other night.

“Near to Hotel in Jack London Square service was not good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

went last weekend loved the show Sunday night. We asked servers twice at show for more service. No help. No second drink. Not okay so talked to manager after the show to let her know I told her the service sucked. she showed me the door and invited me back to Montana. Not good because I love Yoshis and even had a problem with dinner order. It seemed not accountable.
