Yoshi's in Jack London Square is a beautiful restaurant to enjoy beautifully-prepared Japanese food and steaks. The added bonus is the cozy venue where you can enjoy jazz music by some of the best musicians in the world! Regarding the food; an imaginative and ever-changing menu that impresses your sense of sight as well as your sense of taste. From... More

Enjoyed dinner before Taj in concert at Yoshi's. Food and service were excellent. Seating was tight but decent. Next time we will get dinner reservations way in advance!

This is my first visit to Yoshi's, but it certainly won't be my last. The evening began with four different types of Sushi Rolls that I shared with my wife. Food was fresh and the service was very good. We arrived to dinner at 7:00 pm for the 9:00 pm show on a Sunday night. As a result, we had... More

Dinner and a show, a great way to spend an evening, food is good, but the room for the show has a lot to be desired. It is cozy and too close for comfort. I felt like a sardine in a can. The woman next to me was a lotta woman and I moved close to my date, it was... More

Yoshi's is one of my favorite Japanese restuarants in the East Bay - and I'm Japanese-American. They have great sushi and sashimi, but they also have wonderful dinner entrees that combine Cal-Japanese to perfection! Their service is outstanding - even when they're every busy prior to show time. I come here frequently to enjoy their jazz shows after dinner -... More

Passable sushi, certainly not what I expected from a place in Oakland with ratings like these. Waiter was actually pompous with us. They were out of the cold saki we wanted. It was clear that they only wanted to get people out of there as fast as possible for the show that was starting. Sushi did not appear to have... More

We communicated my allergy to OpenTable, told the waiter about it and the severity, including that I carry an Epipen for it, and still a glaring accident was made with one of the sauces. All I got was a set of excuses from the manager that OpenTable did not share the situation and that the waiter must not have communicated... More

This is a delightful restaurant serving excellent sushi. The servers are professional and very helpful in making menu choices. The food comes in a well timed sequence so you have a chance to enjoy each roll without being overwhelmed with the food coming all at one time. Be sure to take their suggestion and eat family style.

If you are looking for an East Coast experience fused with great Asian cuisine, head to Yoshi's. The jazz club is reminiscent of some of the best clubs in NY (reminds me of The Blue Note). Top rate musicians can be seen and heard here. The food, although a bit pricey, never disappoints. Although I'm not a sushi fan, my... More

If you are looking for a memorable experience, then Yoshi's is the place. The sushi is top shelf and a nice place to simply dine. However, the Jazz lounge is a nice addition. Not a bad seat in the house. Food and beverage service is great.
