I attended a show a few weeks ago and I had forgotten just how good the food was. I had reservations and was seated quickly, the wait staff was super attentive and our waitress was excellent. She suggested an entree for me and I absolutely loved it. I highly recommend Yoshi's for dinner if you're attending or show or just... More

The restaurant should not be an afterthought when booking an evening of music at Yoshi's. Yoshi's sushi is some of the freshest and best I have even had; their selection of rolls will satisfy the tastes of everyone from vegetarian to omnivores. The music venue is intimate and always seems to have top rated musicians. Eating at the restaurant gets... More

The staff, music and amenities are great but the food is phenomenal! Best Sushi place! The Yellowtail Tuna was so velvety, and all the rolls are made to perfection. Simply the best sushi personal experience.

When you want to hear great Jazz, you go to Yoshi's and when you want a very convenient and excellent restaurant, Yoshi's works well. We have always found the food first rate at Yoshi's and it's right next door to its jazz venue as well as close by to movies. The food is very accessible Japanese - popular dishes done... More

Yoshi's is always great for dinner and music. They have great acts on a regular basis for great prices and it's great because the venue is intimate enough that you feel like friends with the artist. For dinner be sure to get the fritter and the miso caesar salad.

Yoshi's is known around the world as a great jazz venue. It's a great feeling to sit and listen to world class bands- all the seats are good- have a drink and eat some delicious food. The restaurant is also terrific for Japanese food.

Always heard about it but have never been. Great food, wonderful ambience, and a very special show! The intimacy of the concert area was wonderful. Will make special trips from Las Vegas to come back to this establishment.

Yoshi's is clean, attractive, hip with great jazz events -- if you opt to buy show tickets. The food is very high quality but the portions are a bit small and the prices are high. Service is professional but not always personally friendly. If you're planning a special night out; go for it. If you are just looking for great... More

We had a group reservation for dinner before seeing a concert at Yoshi's. Having never been here before, I wasn't sure what to expect. Certainly wasn't expecting food to be great, thinking they are a quick-serve show venue. The restaurant was very good as a stand-alone, I have to say. Pleasantly surprised at the quality of food - very good... More

On Dec 30, 2016 we had reservations for dinner at 8:00 and show tickets for 10:00. I strongly recommend arriving a couple of hours prior to the show performance if you are taking this in as the restaurant became very busy by 8:30. Had a very romantic meal with my wife (celebrating our anniversary) and I recommend the desserts -... More
