We were a group of ten friends and ordered off the group menu. Food was good, not great. Better food quality when ordering off the entrée/individual menu. I've been here several times and entrees are always good.

Highly Recommend! We had made reservations on a wrong day by mistake and when we showed up on a busy weekend, they maitre switched it around to accommodate us and within a short wait we got a table on the outside (which is what we wanted). The ambiance is nice - the outside seating with the view of the little... More

My wife and I enjoyed their 5-course (7-wine) tasting menu. Three appetizers, lobster with caviar, BBQ sea bass, wagyu beef and chocolate decadence cake. The only way to improve on this heavenly delight would have been to offer three smaller samplings for dessert (like they did for the appetizers) rather than the large piece of wonderfully delicious cake - somewhat...

Elegant food and elegant presentation, which adds up to elegant prices. All dishes are good. Wine is pricey too, but selection is extensive. Treat yourself!

Not the Asian Food that was meant to serve from a paper box.. One of the best Wine lists in town. Bar, Patio and Dinning Room all wonderful. Couples and Business entertaining at its best

Looking for high quality Asian food at a restaurant with great atmosphere? We found it at Uncle Yu's. It has many of the traditional dishes but the flavor is so much better. The wine list is extensive and the wine steward is there to give great advice on what to order.

Met up with family at this restaurant for lunch and dined on the outdoor patio. Great atmosphere, excellent menu with a number of more unique items (for a Chinese restaurant). I had the Dungeness Crab salad as well as the hot and sour soup. Delicious! It is a bit on the pricey side, but well worth paying a little extra... More

Good food good service. Portion tends to be a bit smaller side and not cheap relative to other Chinese restaurants but definitely worth the visit.

Amazing food and a really great wine list with reasonable cost. The Miso Seabass was as good as it gets. The server was very polite and the Patio heaters keep you warm on a chilly day.

The best sizzling rice soup ever. Delicious fresh vegetables, not over cooked. Great scallops. They made my request for a lychee kettle one martini, so good. Beautiful atmosphere and good service. Has our foodie children approval.
