    The calendar of jazz performers both well known & up-and-coming is the main attraction here, but the extensive menu of sushi & other Japanese specialities doesn't disappoint. Book in advance. Read more

    This is absolutely the best venue in the city to see music. Great sound quality, comfortable setting, limited capacity, and reasonable ticket prices (fees are way less than other vendors).

    If you're going to a concert here, make sure you get to your seats early as, although they're reserved, you may still be slightly separated from your party if you show up late.

    They're famous around these parts for hosting a bevy of noted jazz and R&B musicians, with a live music lineup that's second to none. Read more

    Strangely enough, my first time seeing a show here. Nice room, great sound, drinks are a bit pricey($7-$8 a beer), FYI. A good place to see a show though, upscale though.

    It's actually no longer Yoshis, but now known as The Addition. Live music...usually had great jazz and R&B live acts. Food in the restaurant section is ok, but music is the key draw

    Started as a Japanese restaurant in Berkeley by Yoshi Akiba, a World War II war orphan, (who came to the U.S. to study dance, art, and dance therapy) and her friends Kaz Kajimura and Hiroyuki Hori.

    Just saw Maceo Parker here and I'm trying to figure out why they didn't open the area for dancing in front of the stage. Weird venue for a funk band in that regard. Good music, good CA rolls.
