I swear to god, this is the BEST sushi I've ever had! And I've been to Japan. The service was AMAZING. I went for my birthday and, without anyone asking, they brought me free fried ice cream with whipped cream and a candle on top! I wouldn't miss it. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Japanese Cuisine or pretty much anyone. Oh, and by the way, to the people who don't like it: YOU ALL HAVE BAD TASTE!!! It's amazing, take my word for it. Try it,Try it,Try it,Try it,Try it, Try it, Try it, Try it NOWWWWW!!!!! best food ever...period.

I love going to yokohama. When I have people I want to treat for lunch or simply want to spend time alone Yokohama is the place. First of all the food is great for the price. The best time to go is in the late afternoon thats when the energy of the restaurant is really high and I don't mean crowded I just mean full of enthusiasm and promptness. It is a cozy place where you can unwind or focus if needed. I never order beverages so I can not comment on the quality of the drinks but the sushi is fresh and tasty. I love everything I have tasted from the lunch platters to the rolls and sashimi. They have options so if you are watching your weight that is an excellent place to dine as well. I will definetly go again and my intention was to go today but to take out so I can have people over and watch movies this evening.

Well, I just thought that this place was the bee's! I am picky about what kind of sushi I will eat, only because I am a texture sensitive person, and this place was great! It was SUPER fresh, as far as the fish went. I ordered the Eel Special roll and the House roll, and they were both excellent. The waitress(es) were very sweet, prompt, and accurate as nothing was wrong and our food came out quickly. The only thing I laughed about was that sodas come in cans, and they had crazy music playing that made me giggle every five minutes. All in all, I loved this place and I will be returning!
PS: I think people that make reviews like the one before me were just having a bad day and probably were rude to everyone :) They were wonderful to us, and seemingly to everyone else in the restaurant.

Last night I ate at Yokohama for the very first time. As soon as we sat down we ordered a large bottle of hot sake. When the sake arrived a swarm of gnats surrounded our table . We asked the waitress if we can move tables do to the swarm of gnats. She kindly said yes but informed us that , the gnats are attracted to the sake and soy sauce.She mentioned that the gnats would continue to follow us even if we moved tables. She was right but I've never had this problem at any other sushi restaurant in my life. Not only were the gnats disgusting so was the hot sake. The sake looked a little yellow and tasted like hot old eggs. We ordered the sashimi platter with a side of white rice. The rice tasted as if it was burnt rice from the bottom of the rice cooker. It wasn't even sticky. The sashimi was cut to thick and tasted old and warm. As soon as I started eating it I began to feel sick to my stomach. My friend and I decided we wanted to leave. We asked the waitress for the bill. We waited about twenty minutes for her to bring it. She obviously had forgotten and we had to walk up to the register to ask her again( MIND YOU THERE WAS ONLY ONE TABLE IN THE RESTAURANT OTHER THAN US). A few hours after eating there I got sick to my stomach. The food and the service was horrible. I wouldn't eat here even if it was free. save yourself the stomach ache and eat somewhere else

I really like Yokohama. They have such a large menu with so many different choices. I take a lot of my friends who have never really liked sushi here because they have rolls made with shrimp, salmon, albacore, and calamari tempura as well as beef and chicken. Not only that they have combos, such as beef teriyaki, chicken teriyaki, and salmon teriyaki. These usually satisfy me when I am really hungry, or when I dont really feel like sushi at the time. And when you do feel like some good sashimi, Compared to other sushi places I would have to say their fish is much more fresh. They also have a lot of beer and sake. It depends, but I usually go for an ice cold Sapporo. That usually does the trick.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND: BSC roll, Baked Salmon Roll, Green Tea Tempura Ice Cream

Yokohama's is probably the best neighborhood sushi restaurant I've been to and I've been to many. Probably what makes the restaurant always crowded is the fairly priced menu and big slices of sushi that you get with your meals. In terms of sushi restaurants in California, I would have to say much better than Sushi Roku and other overpriced and overhyped places. Whether it's take out or sit in, I usually get the 8 piece sushi combo, rainbow roll, hawaiian roll and whatever elsse I'm feeling. All are very good. Wasn't too impressed with their caterpillar roll, a little bland with too much emphasis on the avocado and not enough on the eel and sauce. Service is pretty quick, a little less attentive when crowded but that can be expected. Haven't tried they're all you can eat special on Sundays, but it's only a matter of time...

I always have trouble finding sushi places. I either spend a pay check for top quality sushi or pocket change for chewy, unpleasant smelling fish. It's hard to find a happy medium...which is why Yokohama is one of my favorite sushi places simply b/c you get quality sushi for decent prices. They have so many fun rolls to choose from or if you're just in the mood for some good sashimi, you can order that too! Good atmosphere (very casual). Perfect for lunch or a relaxing dinner!

I went to Yokohama at Dinner. I was so cold and ask Hot Tea. Hot Tea was so cold. The restaurant was not packed. I was thinking, just order, eat, and go home early. My order took more than half hour. And food was kind a cold too..... I was so disappointed. I won't come back anymore. Not to recommend.
