Fodor's Review

Decades ago Yoshi's was launched as a pricey fine-dining restaurant in the Lakeview neighborhood. We offer this history lesson to say that while the atmosphere went jeans-casual and the prices became more reasonable, the cooking quality remained, and remains, high. Yoshi Katsumura turns out informal French-Asian cuisine, like duck breast with baked quail egg in brioche or roasted Japanese pumpkin filled with tofu (it's good enough to convert a carnivore). Sunday brunch

includes the expected eggs along with a Japanese-inspired breakfast (fish, miso soup, vegetables, and steamed rice).

Lost something in the translation

I'm told this restuarant has really lost it's luster in the last couple of years and I believe it. I was expecting some interesting Seattle-Pan-Asian type cuisine but was confronted with very pedestrian meal. It wasn't bad, just flat, boring and lifeless. The wait staff was equally clueless and more intersted in tedious and univited conversation in order to ingratiate a hefty tip for poor service. They seem to live on an old repuation for quality.
