      Love the food and service... this place is always a must whenever I'm in town. Be sure to ask for Jason or Dennis as your server.

      AmaIng local gem
      Had the best gazpacho I have ever had. The beef tenderloin was also perfectly done. Lots of regulars arrived for dinner while I was there, evidence of what a neighborhood treasure this restaurant is.

      Great restaurant, amazing dining experience!
      This little restaurant is a great spot for date night, or even just a late dinner for one. This place had excellent service that for the price (around $40-$50) made you feel as if you were a celebrity, and felt as if it would cost twice or even three times as much. You even get small to go box with almond macaroons on your way out. The service is fast, efficient, kind and goes above and beyond for you, and the decor/atmosphere is very high-end and luxe. Love this place and will definitely be returning for another wagyu burger my next trip to Chicago (very soon!).

      We were treated so well. Wow! Their kindness and understanding to my dates special dietary needs was extraordinary! Kind of pricey. But certainly worth it!

      Awesome staff
      Everyone I have encountered at Yoshi's has been amazing! From the owners coming up and checking on me all the way down to the hostess. Say hi to Malinda and Erin and Shana when they're working.

      I visited here two years ago, with my boss(straight). Many people's in, but we didn't feel alone.My server is a good looking guy...mmmmm. Delicious, sensitive and sophisticated!! I surprised that gay men opened gay book (next to my boss!), but I like that! Please visit here.

      A better time, can't be had!
      This place is so great, on many levels. Food, service, drinks everythings rings at a perfect pitch. The last time I was in Chicago (for a week) , I ate there three times! There is no better place in Boystown, to start, or end a evening!

      Awsome food
      Yoshi's is a great place right in the heart of Boystown. The menu is basically Asian/French fusion with some interesting variations of American cuisine. I have never been disappointed with the quality of the food although the service can sometimes be a tad stuffy. If you enjoy good food I highly recommend it!
