Yoshi's has served Japan's best traditional dishes to Bay Area patrons since 1972. The menu highlights artfully arranged sushi, fresh grilled seafood, classic Japanese dishes, and vegetarian fare. Patrons can kick off their shoes in the traditional Japanese tatami seating or dine at tables. Expert sushi chefs create sushi and sashimi to order either in the restaurant or in the jazz house. Start the evening in the cocktail lounge before dinner or have a nightcap after taking in a show in the jazz house.

    We dined at Yoshi's because you can get first dibs on general seating. My friend loved the sashimi. They have a very nice spinach salad, I had the shrimp tempura which they serve with an unusual aioli sauce which I didn't care for. Every seat was filled because the show was sold out.

    Food was mediocre. Both kobe appetizers were good. Land entrees were bleh. The plum sauce didn't complement the dish. The spider roll was wrapped in cabbage?!!! It was fun to check it out, but probably only come in for drinks in the future.

    If you are going to a show at Yoshis, definitely arrive early to eat. They reserve you a better table inside the theater based on what time you arrived at the restaurant.
