Great recommendations and service. Everyone was knowledgable and friendly and made good recommendations, taking time to listen to my likes and dislikes. Definitely a place that I will visit again.

We stopped in for sushi and drinks and it was a very good experience. The Happy Hour specials are a very good deal and there is a lot to choose from. The service was very good and the sushi chefs really know what they're doing. Try it at the sushi bar or at a table and you'll enjoy yourselves.

By far, this place has my heart. The sushi grade is hands down amazing and deliciously fresh. The owners are fantastic and so hard working. They are on the floor a lot making sure everything goes smoothly and stays up to par. The waiters and waitresses have amazing personalities and are always one step ahead in making your experience enjoyable.... More

We have been dining at Yo Sake since the day it opened (10+ years). Some of the original wait persons are still there and are always extremely friendly and professional. It is a very hip restaurant located in downtown Wilmington. The sushi is consistently delicious; prices are reasonable and from 5-7, Yo Sake offers a special half price menu. You... More

Only visiting Wilmington for 1 week but will most certainly return to eat here before we leave . Would... More

This place is ok, I can't really say anything negative about it, but I was expecting more. I had heard rave reviews about Yo Sake, but it was just OK.

I just left Yosake and have never been more pleased with the service or quality of the food. My friend and I sat at the bar and had Brett as our bartender and we're delighted from the moment we sat down. Our drink order was taken instantly and my wine glass was never near empty. He has character and personality... More

This was a really nice experience...I am not a sushi lover but all the people I was with love it. The surprise is that they have other items which are delicious...from pad Thai to burgers. The sushi was really beautiful when it came to our table and just as delicious said my friends. Nice, friendly wait staff and definitely will... More
