I made an almost last minute reservation to see the Taj Mahal Trio at the 10 p.m. show on a Friday night. For convenience, we decided to dine at the restaurant, and it was a good decision. It was ridiculously easy to park, dine, relax, and go see a great set. Diners get priority seating, so I imagine it could... More

OK let me start by saying that I have visited Yoshi's a couple of previous times and given them excellent reviews, but an establishment is only as good as it's current state of affairs. A friend and I bought tickets to see the original Drifters show about a week ago ($40.00 each) the show started at 7PM as they had... More

I loved the sushi selection. The Hot Sake tasted great. I really liked the Panko Oysters. It is one of my favorite appetizers.

This is a great venue with great music and would be a 5-star review if not for the transparent efforts of management to get us to spend more even if that means enjoying the music less. The first annoying effort to get you to part with your hard-earned cash starts with their policy of giving you better seats if you... More

We saw Najee in the first row. Nice intimate theater. If you want best seating have dinner at Yoshi's and you get first pick on seats.

Classy Jazz venue in downtown Oakland, walking distance from city centre. Saw Jeanette Harris Band, a Califorian saxplayer and lot of the audience was local, apparently. Special atmosphere, that night. Venue was friendly, well set up and the sushi was excellent as well.
