This really is a cafe with a pleasant appearance, but that tries to guise itself as a 5 star restaurant. I came in with a large party & our service was below average. I ordered a $42 meal that the waiter raved over, & ordered a single drink during the 2 hour wait. A double (well quality) whiskey with a splash of ginger ale turned out to be $33 without tip & was poorly made on top of it. When my meal finally arrived, I was utterly convinced I had been sent a small appetizer by mistake. I had not. I received a pot pie that was the size of a snack cup & tasted like something I could have defrosted at home.

Really enjoyed the goose liver appetizer. Was blown away by the Puffer-Fish entree. My first time having it.

Yoshis delivers high quality, uncompromising haute cuisine, but no it is not the latest nor the Greatest seen and be seen on the scene spot, it doesnt need to be this. Its food speaks for itself. Based on reading extensive reviews paired with visits to eateries throughout the city from upscale to hole in the wall establishments I am convinced that the average Chicagoan that dines pines and then whines for piece de resistance is actually satisfied with a fancy smoke and mirrors establishment. Most hot chicago restaurants, especially the "new" and "hot" spots are largely window dressing with food that is mediocre at best. Yoshis is real, the haute cuisine is delicious but accessible, the wait staff may not treat you like you are God's gift to dining but thats because you are not!

I went to this place expecting nothing less than excellence. It is very expensive and yes, the food can be ok but the service is not good. What an arrogant waiter! Sometimes I would say 'thank you' and he would look down at me! False smiles, obnoxious waiters and very petulant clientele... And the mixture of 'french' cuisine with 'japanese' vegetables can be rather poor. An experiment, and not a good one. Avoid this expensive restaurant. The area is not posh, either.

Though we were seated promptly for a party of six, the food was nothing special and not great value considering the high prices.

I have been going to Yoshi's for years and have yet to be disappointed with the menu or service. It has been around for many years and is still always fairly full of returning patrons. This is testament to the fine establishment it is. If you have been there and were disappointed, I would suggest a second visit. If you are dissatisfied, Yoshi is almost always in the kitchen. Let him know and I'm certain he will work to accommodate you in some way. Trust me. Have I ever lied to you?
