    The food at Yoshi’s is generally pretty good. The fish always seems fresh and the sushi chefs do a nice job of preparing and presenting the dishes. It is, however, way over-priced. A 2-piece nigiri is $11 and goes up from there. Most of the rolls are $18 and up. Not a great value and the ambiance is just alright.

    We went before the show, so it’s nice to not have to rush through dinner as a seat during the show is reserved for you. The hamachi crudo was well prepared as was the cedar plank salmon platter. The tempura was adequately prepared, as in the shrimp remained moist.

    Celebrated my wife's birthday (April) with dinner and show at Yoshi's. Arrived for 5:45pm reservation (convenient parking in adjacent garage with validation at restaurant front counter). Ordered three items to share: Beef Wagyu Skewers, Tako (Octopus) Salad and Rainbow Roll (all were very good). Babak was our server and provided great customer service. Dining in the restaurant entitled us to preferred seating for the concert (well worth it). Enjoyed the entire evening and look forward to returning, soon.

    Awesome experience here at Yoshi’s!! The service and dining choices were phenomenal. Sophia waited our table and gave us great suggestions. She was so quick and courteous along with the hostess and any staff we encountered. The reservation experience was so easy to make through the app with OpenTable. We are definitely coming back as soon as we can. The Dazz Band performance was fire!! They had us wishing we booked both showtimes!! We sat in a booth and met a great couple who made our night even more memorable. Overall our best nightlife experience through the pandemic. We are already looking for another show to book! Thanks again to The Dazz Band, eTix, OpenTable and of course Yoshi’s!!!
