Some dishes were great and others were downright mediocre. The service was great initially and then downhill very quickly. It took a long time to get additional glasses to share our Sake bottle with our friends. Cutlery was missing at times. The dessert came after...More

Food and drinks were average and a bit pricey. Atmosphere was good and not too noisy for a bar setting. However, it’s very convenient if you are seeing a show there because you can get your seat assigned if you are a patron of bar...More

This is our second time to eat at the restaurant and attend the jazz concert in the same building. The food is great, and so is the presentation. They provide great service, and time it out perfectly if they know you're going to the concert.

We had dinner at Yoshi’s before seeing the Curtis Salgado band. The staff was courteous and helpful, even reserving seats for us in the theater while we ate dinner. Our waiter offered great suggestions for what to order. We had the chili-lime edamame, shishito peppers,...More

I would make a dinner reservation for 6pm in the main dining room. Just let your server know that you will be attending a 730 show.
