Went for a dinner and then the show. Great food and great small venue for jazz or blues. Great service and attention to detail. Kobe beef skewers and Spider sushi roll with softshell crab —4🌟.

Yoshi's has a restaurant with tasty Japanese cuisine and a wonderful music venue. Fine sound system. Every seat in the house has a clear view of the stage. Our group of 12 was entertained by master guitarists Ken Emerson and Jim Kimo West with Kimo's...More

I love Sushi and Jazz so this was perfect. Not an uptight place but very fancy. Food was on point and not super pricey for Sushi.

This Place has great food, and drinks nice atmosphere and Comedy Night with Arnez J, was too funny. Came in town for a family reunion, and Comedy night was included in the visit, This little area is very nice and have a little shopping area.

Good music in a horrible crowded place. Be ready to be pushed and shoved by the rude staff trying to accommodate as many people as possible at your own table. Greed is an ugly thing.

Since it is cabaret style seating I would imagine they can remove a chair or two to make room for a wheelchair. If you dine in the restaurant before the show you get reserved seating. I would call them directly and ask.
