First off, let me start by saying we were having a horrible travel day. Our flight was 3 1/2 hours late which made us late to a theatre show even though we went straight there from the airport. Traffic was horrible due to a severe storm they had just had. We were still able to see the show and we... More

Yoshi's is a classic great neighborhood restaurant. They offer everything from Waygu to vegetarian and all with great flavor and originality. Solid good food and Mrs. Yoshi is a true gem! The service is impeccable, the bread delicious and the drinks are great to go along with the wonderful food. While our last visit was in December we go there... More

Since 1982 continues to deliver cutting-edge culinary delights, with an American/Asian fusion flare. Specials menu essentially presents a different offering every evening. We have eaten here for three decades and continue to be pleased and amazed. Fine wine menu. White table cloth with warm personal ambiance. Valet parking. Recommend reservations. Full bar service and actual small bar near door. Fantastic... More

I cannot begin to write how much my husband and I love this restaurant. The food is consistently excellent and the service is impeccable. We had our wedding at Yoshi's and invited 30guests. Everyone was favorably impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. Everything on the menu is quality and prepared to perfection. We highly recommend Yoshi's Cafe.

Yoshi's is located in a 2 story white frame house on a Halsted St corner. Inside, the first room is dominated by the bar in the center. Beyond French doors is a second dining room. Tables in both rooms are covered with snowy white linen tablecloths. The menu offers a few French dishes, like the chicken liver mousse appetizer, while... More

Whenever my partner and I go to Chicago we go to Yoshi's Cafe the the food and service have always been excellent and the interior/exterior have never changed yet remain well kept and clean. I can't wait to go back again but it'll be a while before we make back to Chicago and Yoshi's Cafe.

I visited Yoshi's Cafe on my way to a Cubs game; but wasn't especially hungry. When I entered the Cafe I immediately felt uncomfortable because of the classiness of the place. Well dressed servers with a maitre-d and plenty of staff milling about. It wasn't like any other cafe I had dined at. I was seated quickly and because I... More

There are very few places in Chicago where you can get Whole Red Snapper. Yoshi's Cafe has consistently offered it. Simply prepared, it is plated with rice and vegetables. I prefer it without much, if any, seasoning; and I have never been disappointed. With Dennis at the front of the house, we are always greeted like family. It is a... More
