I had my first meal at Yoshi's awhile back. I was really impressed. It was much more creative than I ever expected. The dishes were all amazing, especially the pumpkin ravioli....

Really wonderful atmosphere, fabulous food 8/19/2009

I had my first meal at Yoshi's awhile back. I was really impressed. It was much more creative than I ever expected. The dishes were all amazing, especially the pumpkin ravioli. While the price was higher than I expected, so was the quality of the food. I am looking forward to my next visit. I highly recommend. Pros: Food, vibe more

Avoid for your own safety! 9/24/2008

While dining at this seemingly cozy, family-operated restaurant, I was given the added gift of hair in my entree. When I had notified our server, she rushed over to the woman/owner currently in charge, who took her time coming over to apologize as she chummied up conversation with regulars sitting at the bar. When she finally did come over, she merely apologized for the inconvience and offered a complimentary desert - however, no recooking of the entree and not even comping it off the bill - until I of course insisted I would not be paying for my meal. Before leaving, I stopped off to use the restroom where I discovered a mouse/rat trap placed non-conspicuously next to the toilet. Anyone who dines in this establishment be wary of the restrooms, vermin, and a non-cooperative kitchen/staff. more

Outstanding fusion restaurant! 11/4/2007

We tried two starters, and glad we did! West coast mussels in thai broth and also the tuna tartare with oyster shooters. Radichio salad with slightly vinegary, and shrimp/scallop pasta was tasted. Decent martini selection. Did not order wine as basic menu was not so enticing, a bit expensive for the value. more

User review by yummo 2/2/2006

I never thought I would spend nearly $20 on a burger, but let me tell you- this is the best burger I've ever tasted! You will not regret it. The service is outstanding, with attention to detail, answers to questions about the menu and drink choices, as well as recommendations for those in need. Nearly the best service I've had in a long time. Everything from the appetizers, to drinks, to the main courses were enjoyed 100% by everyone in our party. Pros: great martini menu more

Biggest disappointment - ever 7/22/2005

What makes my recent meal at Yoshi's Café so memorable is how uniformly misconceived and aweful every dish was. I used to enjoy Yoshi's back in the pre-Café days. I returned 15 years later hoping to find some semblance of its former existence. In stead, waiter was unpolished and clumsy, the soft shell crab tempura was bland and (dare I say) ordinary, the cream of mushroom gazpacho tasted like chilled watered down Campbell's, the seared Salmon sat on a bed of spinach that was so saturated with butter so as to ruin the balance, and finally, the special of the night, ""steak salad"" comprised of a Korean seasoned wagyu skirt steak accompanied by off-tasting duck leg confit and langoustine topped with mayonnaise all abed an over-dressed mismatched assortment of slimy straw mushroom, cucumber, and frise. My wife and I truly felt ill for a long time afterwards. Pros: bus boy, water, never to return Cons: food, service, ambience more

Favorite Restaurant 3/2/2005

We have been eating regularly at Yoshi's for over 10 years. It is our favorite Chicago restaurant. The food is always great as well as the service. Yoshi keeps a close eye on the kitchen doing the cooking while his wife Nabuko manages the customers. The food is an eclectic selection which includes French classics such as cassoluet, tuna tartar, steaks, and great fresh fish. My favorites include the Waygu hamburger, the cassoulet, the tuna tartar, and last but not least, the homemade carmel pecan ice cream. Pros: Wonderful food, Great service, Efficient wait staff more

Casual but Elegant 2/13/2005

There are good reasons that Yoshi's has been in business for 25 years: great food, friendly service, and a constantly updated menu, to name a few. The daily fresh fish specials are always a good bet; seasonal preperations are always fantastic. The stalwarts of the menu are great. The rack of lamb is the best in the city. The beef is so tender it pratically cuts itself. Yoshi and his wife Nuboko work hard to meet their customers and make them feel at home. You will be comfortable in a business suit or in blue jeans. A fine dining menu at moderate prices in a relaxing environment. Just GREAT. Pros: Great Food, Friendly and Casual, Varied Menu more

Try the fish! 5/11/2003

Grouper was the most recent fish featured on Yoshi's menu, and as expected, it was cooked to perfection. While the lamb chops are an excellent choice, and the grilled tofu makes for a tasty, healthy choice, Yoshi shines with his ever changing choices of seafood fo rhis menu! Yum! Pros: Attentive service, Good portions, Good neighborhood Cons: Smokers allowed more
