Looking for high quality Asian food at a restaurant with great atmosphere? We found it at Uncle Yu's. It has many of the traditional dishes but the flavor is so much better. The wine list is extensive and the wine steward is there to give great advice on what to order.

Met up with family at this restaurant for lunch and dined on the outdoor patio. Great atmosphere, excellent menu with a number of more unique items (for a Chinese restaurant). I had the Dungeness Crab salad as well as the hot and sour soup. Delicious! It is a bit on the pricey side, but well worth paying a little extra... More

Good food good service. Portion tends to be a bit smaller side and not cheap relative to other Chinese restaurants but definitely worth the visit.

Amazing food and a really great wine list with reasonable cost. The Miso Seabass was as good as it gets. The server was very polite and the Patio heaters keep you warm on a chilly day.

The best sizzling rice soup ever. Delicious fresh vegetables, not over cooked. Great scallops. They made my request for a lychee kettle one martini, so good. Beautiful atmosphere and good service. Has our foodie children approval.

Fresh! Delicious! Expensive! Chicken and asparagus are top of the line! Wine selection is great (but veddy expensive.) Do I recommend this gem? Yes!! Is it expensive? Yes! Do I recommend it? Yes! :) easily $50 for a meal and 2 glass of wine per person.

Crispy Chicken is my favorite. Then right behind that is the Lemon Chicken. Plus the service from the staff is always so professional. There have been times I want it a bit more spicier & they are happy to help out in that. Enjoy!!!

We dined at Uncle Yu's on a Saturday afternoon, celebrating my mother in laws 92nd birthday. She wanted to go to Uncle Yu's because she wanted chow mien. The food was very good and not all your typical Chinese menu. It's more an Asian fusion with the usual Chinese dishes and a lot more unusual dishes as well. I had... More

This is definitely a high end Chinese place! It has amazing food and the portions are perfect. I have not had one bad thing from here but if you go in do not expect to go for cheap unless you are there for their lunch specials. Highly recommend for a nice dinner.

We had the 5 course tasting menu, it was superb. We had one wine pairing between us which was enough. The staff are knowledgeable and even on a very busy night we were given great service. It was a random choice but we'd come again. Well worth a visit.

Thank multitrips
