We've been going for years! It's our fav Chinese restaurant. ALWAYS great service and the food tastes fresh and of superb quality! They also have a wonderful wine list. This is a must try, you won't be disappointed.

Uncle Yu's is the place we go when we can't agree on a place for lunch. The lunches are good and priced well. Service is good for lunch. I wish I could say the same for dinner. Food is still ok, but not great and the service isn't good at all. Have tried this for dinner a multitude of times... More

This is the best Chinese food! The drinks are amazing and the veggies are fresh and plump! I love to pair the aged orange beef with the yutini and finish with the sorbet bomb dessert thing! It is very expensive, but very good food.

Food was decent, though bland by asian standards. Interesting customer service made for a very memorable experience. Our group was quite amused by the incompetence of the primary waitress and manager, yet secondary staff was excellent. Definitely not the #2 restaurant in Livermore as it was rated during our visit. But a story we can can share and laugh at... More

After visiting a local winery for a tasting, we asked for a lunch recommendation. For chinese food Uncle Yu's was recommended, and we were glad it was. First impression - a gorgeous restaurant! The decor was upscale, the prices were moderate. The food was good. The hot and sour soup was delicious. I had the szechaun prawns were delicious. The... More

Wow! Great wine selection, atmosphere, service, and the cuisine was out of this world. I wanted to impress my girlfriend on date night and she wasn't disappointed! Great location in chic downtown Livermore and near plenty of parking.

Good food, fresh. Unique items along with traditional (American-style!) chinese food. Pot stickers are some of the best around - I like the fat doughy kind, and these are them! A little high priced, but nice to get fresh Chinese.

Nick the owner has accomplished something truly unique. The ability to successfully pair wine -- and he has an incredible selection of rare and unusual ones -- with Chinese cuisine. What actually pairs with spicy eggplant (a must try appetizer)? An unusual South Eastern French Sauvignon blend the includes a touch of Vermentino to give it a depth that stands... More

I'm not sure what the rave is all about. I wasn't impressed at all. To me it was just over priced typical Chinese food. I've had better at some take out places. We started with the potstickers which were so thick and hardly any meat in them. We also had lemon chicken which was good, but like I said, nothing... More
