I have had several friends tell me about this place so I decided to try it. Staff was very friendly and it also had a great atmosphere. Sushi rolls that I had that night were ok. Nothing to give it a rating of 5 but I will say average. There were a couple of others that sounded very interesting to... More

My wife and I were staying at an Inn in Wilmington over Valentines Day weekend and being the sushi lovers we are decided to find a sushi place within walking distance of our Inn to have our VD Dinner. There were three to choose from but the "Sushi Happy Hour" made the decision in favor of Yo Sake. The decor... More

I have tried Yo Sake twice now. The food is horrible. Not sure why people like this place? There are so many other great sushi places in wilmington. The service and atmosphere were excellent though

My husband and I love this place! It is always a must when we visit Wilmington. We love the food and atmosphere! The Shanghai Firecracker Shrimp and Banh Minis are favorites. I am not an adventurous sushi eater so I stick with the Pimp Shrimp and love it. They have great appetizer specials late night. This place is just cool!

Great food and great fun with the family! All the food was really great! They were a little slow tonight but only because they had some staff missing. The waitress really did a good job of helping us get everything we needed and she had a big smile on her face even when she was so busy. She made our... More

We stopped in for sushi and drinks and it was a very good experience. The Happy Hour specials are a very good deal and there is a lot to choose from. The service was very good and the sushi chefs really know what they're doing. Try it at the sushi bar or at a table and you'll enjoy yourselves.

By far, this place has my heart. The sushi grade is hands down amazing and deliciously fresh. The owners are fantastic and so hard working. They are on the floor a lot making sure everything goes smoothly and stays up to par. The waiters and waitresses have amazing personalities and are always one step ahead in making your experience enjoyable.... More
