Ownership changed hands and the food does not taste as good. Tempura dipping sauce was way too sweet and chicken was dry.
My grand daughter and I frequent Yanagi Bistro just to relax and enjoy great Sushi.
All our dishes were so fresh tasting. The presentation is wonderful. Service is great and food came quickly. love it.
Fresh food and friendly service. Love this place!!
Food was delish! Sushi was creative! Service was excellent. There was a drink guy yakking loudly and excessively for quite some time, but it was nice and quiet once he left.
We always enjoy dining here and love the atmosphere. And, of course, the sushi, sashimi, and service!
Very good food and service. Also, the ice cream was great!
One of my favorite places to eat and my fave sushi place in the South Bay!
We have been here many times and have never had a bad dish. Service is outstanding especially if your server is Nobu. Everyone there treats customers like family.
Great place. Love it
This is my favorite sushi spot in the South Bay. The staff is so efficient and cool. The sushi chefs are amazing and hilarious! There's such a relaxed vibe.
Love the synergy.
Great food and service as always! I stumbled across this hidden gem and I cannot get enough of it!
When my lovely grand daughter is here from CU-Boulder we cannot wait to have dinner at Yanagi Bistro.
Jason is the best. Go see him at the sushi bar and he will take care of you.
Great food ! Neighborhood gem! This place is always welcoming, friendly and has great sushi.
If you don't want to drive far and want to enjoy good sushi and ambience this is the place to go!
Great lobster roll, tempura soft shell crab and pork buns. Everything is incredibly fresh!
Always great! Hadn't been before during Happy Hour....good choices and prices!
Seems like they are always understaffed with servers, but we know to expect slow and forgetful service by now. It's not so bad that we don't return...we like the food too much and it is a convenient location for us.
Sushi was really fresh , buttery melted in my mouth! So good! Thanks for the great dinner!
Great Sunday night Happy Hour menu. Sushi is always super fresh here and comes out fast!
Have dined here a lot of times. It is one of our favorite places. Fresh sushi, great maki rolls, and other cooked dinners. Service is outstanding.
The manage showed he was not happy with us requesting to switch to a booth for the my kids
More than $140, with some sushi and some kids food?!
$22 for toro, but the fish was still frozen with many tender inside the fish, unbelievable at this price
Wasted of money
Always great quality food and outstanding service. One of our favorite places to dine.
The food is always high quality and the service outstanding. Been here many times and have never had a bad experience.
OMG, my friend took me to the Redondo Beach location back in January, and I loved it. So much that I told my husband we should go there for our Anniversary in April. I called the restaurant to make sure it had the same menu. The Lomita location is much closer to where we live, and it was equally as awesome as the RB location. I think the RB location has a little more ambiance, but the food is equally terrific at both locales. We had an amazing Anniversary dinner and stuffed ourselves nearly blind. We will definitely be coming back next time we are celebrating!
Love the lunch Bento special. A good way to have a taste of many types of dishes. The sashimi is wonderful; so fresh and tasty and the texture is not mushy.
Service was disappointing, if we did stop a server we would not have spoken to one. Chairs at sushi bar are falling apart.
The food and service is always outstanding. The staff make you feel like family. Yanagi is one of our favorite places to dine.
Went for lunch and ordered a sushi lunch that was reasonably priced. What set the tone of mediocrity for me was that the Wasabi was extremely hard and dry and I practically found myself "chiseling" it with the end of my chopsticks. I can only imagine that it had been prepared and then was sitting out or in a fridge for a very long time. The food quality in general was very average. Not an acceptable level of quality for anyone who is very familiar with Japanese cuisine, and definitely not recommended forJapanese people.
Our Valentine's Day dinner was incredible thanks to the outstanding food and excellent service. Our waitress was kind and helpful when we asked for drink recommendations and was always ready to help us, as were the other employees. After enjoying our meal the whole staff sent us out with a friendly goodbye and left both my girlfriend and me with a great impression. Would definitely recommend this place for everyone!!
We have dined here many times. The staff makes you feel like family and the quality of food along with the service is always outstanding.
Great middle priced sushi restaurant that is good for small groups. Friendly staff.
The food is authentic and very well prepared; beautiful in fact! I have eaten at Yanagi several times in the past 2 years and enjoyed it each time. The service is outstanding as is the care taken to ensure that guests have what they need. the new configuration, adding booths was a good idea. Talking is possible and guests feel like they can relax and take their time. There is a back room for large parties.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. High quality food and outstanding service. The staff make you feel like family.
Had a lovely dinner, food was exceptional and so was the service. Nice contemporary decore very clean great atmosphere. Would definitely go back!
Outstanding service as always from Richard, Alice, and Nobu. The sushi chefs are always courteous in greeting each customer with excellent food. A must try spot for weekend dinner.
Outstanding food and service. One of our favorite restaurants to go to.
