Stood at the door for almost 15 minutes while the hostess counted menus and busied herself with various other tasks without ever greeting us. The bartenders also ignored us although the bar had open seats we would gladly have taken. Left in disgust.

We love visiting Yamagoya when we’re in the Fernie area. The sushi is delicious, the service is great, and the green tea ice cream never disappoints. This is a great spot with great ambience and we’ve never had a bad experience here. Highly recommended!

I always enjoy the upbeat atmosphere when I eat here. The staff is super friendly and helpful when you just aren’t sure what you want to try. You’ll truly enjoy eating here but make sure you beat the rush! This restaurant is a local favourite.

They don't take reservations. Either get there for opening at 5:00 or second seating which runs around 6:30 which is what we usually do
