Since 1982 continues to deliver cutting-edge culinary delights, with an American/Asian fusion flare. Specials menu essentially presents a different offering every evening. We have eaten here for three decades and continue to be pleased and amazed. Fine wine menu. White table cloth with warm personal ambiance. Valet parking. Recommend reservations. Full bar service and actual small bar near door. Fantastic... More

I cannot begin to write how much my husband and I love this restaurant. The food is consistently excellent and the service is impeccable. We had our wedding at Yoshi's and invited 30guests. Everyone was favorably impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. Everything on the menu is quality and prepared to perfection. We highly recommend Yoshi's Cafe.

Yoshi's is located in a 2 story white frame house on a Halsted St corner. Inside, the first room is dominated by the bar in the center. Beyond French doors is a second dining room. Tables in both rooms are covered with snowy white linen tablecloths. The menu offers a few French dishes, like the chicken liver mousse appetizer, while... More

Whenever my partner and I go to Chicago we go to Yoshi's Cafe the the food and service have always been excellent and the interior/exterior have never changed yet remain well kept and clean. I can't wait to go back again but it'll be a while before we make back to Chicago and Yoshi's Cafe.

I visited Yoshi's Cafe on my way to a Cubs game; but wasn't especially hungry. When I entered the Cafe I immediately felt uncomfortable because of the classiness of the place. Well dressed servers with a maitre-d and plenty of staff milling about. It wasn't like any other cafe I had dined at. I was seated quickly and because I... More

There are very few places in Chicago where you can get Whole Red Snapper. Yoshi's Cafe has consistently offered it. Simply prepared, it is plated with rice and vegetables. I prefer it without much, if any, seasoning; and I have never been disappointed. With Dennis at the front of the house, we are always greeted like family. It is a... More

My aunt selected this restaurant, the staff is very friendly and at 7PM on a Wednesday night it was 3/4's full. The food and beverages were terrific! We had 6 in our group and our server Jamie was great. Super service. I would recommend the Red Snapper... it was delicious. We were seated at a table near the entrance to... More

Very good food. Very friendly wait staff. Fun times with good food. I had the veggie platter, substituting tofu for the chicken -- delicious! My vegan friend was able to get the same with no butter without any problems. Everyone at the table raved about the food.

Yoshi's Cafe NEVER disappoints - excellent and attentive service; beautifully presented and absolutely delicious food; and relaxing, welcoming, and warm atmosphere. We were there twice recently - for dinner and then took visitors from Boston there for brunch. We love the creative combination of Japanese and western foods and tastes. For dinner, we had the prix fixe dinner, which is... More
