What an interesting concept! I'm sure I would have enjoyed myself even more if I stayed for the show. The sushi bar staff were really attentive, however waitstaff service was slow. The quality of the food was good, the cuts of sashimi were thicker than what I prefer, it they had a "melt in your mouth" quality to them and... More

Great venue to hear good jazz and eat wonderful food. It is a bit expensive but here you get what you pay for. There is a parking garage and Yoshi's validates for about an hour or so. They did the venue right - it is like an old time dinner and concert place with seats in a 3/4 round view.... More

We go to Yoshi's for the music and that is always fantastic. The restaurant is alright. The food is good but a little expensive for what they offer. Great place to go for jazz!!

I love Yoshi's. The food is good and the entertainment is even better. The thing I like most about Yoshi's is you can dine and go the club without leaving the building. The parking garage is right next door. It a must do if you are in Oakland.

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
