Kevin our waiter took great care of us and gave us just the right amount of attention. The spinach and bacon salad is a must and you can skip the calamari as it is bland. The food comes out extremely fast and we knew to order as we went to not be rushed and get everything at the same time. I had the pork chop it was DELICIOUS! Definitely recommend. And my boyfriend had the scallops and pork belly which he enjoyed. All in all good experience with great ambiance, good to go to before a show but I wouldn't dine here besides that. Also Lina the bartender is amazing as well definitely go see her!

The first time was great so we went back and celebrated a graduation. We requested a specific table when we reserved online and we got the exact table we wanted. For the second time the wait staff was pleasant and helpful. We were well taken care of and the suggestions from our waitress were spot on. We'll definitely be back.

The service was great. The only thing that they don’t really explain is that if you eat at the restaurant they reserve a seat for you at the show but those reserved seats are still shared and very close to others so not really worth it. If you go for a show just get food at the lounge or the show, it is just as great and they bring it to you

Found it to be lacking in seasoning, spice etc. It is very convenient for the show next door which was excellent. Hopefully Yoshis can step its food game up to match its performers.

It is a little pricey, but if you are seeing a show there, it is beyond convenient to finish your dinner and walk right into the showroom. And that is worth paying extra for dinner.

The food was great, the server was exceptional, but one of our items, a spider roll, took too long to arrive. I believe there was an error in the kitchen since it arrived swiftly once we notified our server of the delay. Dining there helped with preferred seating for show.

One person in our party had to wait for her salad while the rest of us was eating. Waitress kept saying it's coming and then admitted it got lost in the order. Overall the food was delicious and portions were generous.
