Yoko's Japanese Restaurant
2878 SE Gladstone St, Portland, OR 97202
Maybe they have great sushi, I'll never know because I'm not going to put up with being treated like crap long enough to find out.\r
Look, I'm a server...have been a long time and I know it sucks sometimes, but if you can't handle it, go find a desk job. Expecting a server to be polite and helpful is NOT unreasonable as so many other reviewers have suggested. IT'S THEIR JOB. If you are in a tipped industry THAT IS HOW YOU EARN A TIP. I don't treat MY customers like sh*t and expect them to reward me for it or become a return customer. I have never been rude to a waiter in my life and I am very forgiving of a server that seems stressed and ready for the end of his/her shift...I've been there! The staff at Yoko's just come off as dicks who want to let you know you are in THEIR house and playing by THEIR rules. No thanks.\r
Note to Yoko's: If you advertise that you do Take Out, then don't tell people you aren't doing Take Out whenever you just don't feel like it. \r
We left and went to Bara's and had pretty much the nicest server ever and a great dinner. I'm sure Yoko is a lovely, talented business owner who just unfortunately has some rotten apples in her staff.
