My wife and i went to Yutaka for dinner on Saturday December 4th and had a great experience. We went using some gift cards we obtained from Life Experiences which entitled us to an Omakase Sushi dinner and bottle of Sake, we were not disappointed. If i recall correctly we had about 7 courses all were amazing and the fish was so fresh it amazing (Fatty Tuna belly - Toro was outstanding). We have nothing but positive things to say about this establishment. This was our first time and we were already talking about making it a point to go back and do it again soon.

The food was great and the service was great as well. The only thing that disappointed me was the size of the mackerel which was the catch of the day. The little piece was of the size of a standard post it but was yummy!

Loved how fresh the fish was. Ordered the lobster sashimi with miso soup which was fabulous. Wished there was more of the soup. Only quirk was the wait staff is not as attentive as I would have liked, e.g. when drinks were low at the table coming to refill, ask for another round, inquiring about wanting dessert or the check. Despite the quirk, I'd still go back again for the food.

A great "quiet" revolution in fantastic service, outstanding food, and a place where you can can actually talk (without shouting), hence good for date night, family and friends.

Service was very slow. Atmosphere was uncomfortable....very very noisy. Food was ok but not the freshest sashimi I have tasted. Disappointed after all the hype

The food is very tasty and decor is lovely. Our server made some wonderful suggestions. But the service was a bit slow. And it wasn't because we were taking dozens of pictures of the food. There must have been some miscommunication about our table because we saw people that came in after us get their food, pay and leave. It took a while to get our order taken and then forever to get the check. We will give the place another try when we are back in town because the food was tasty!

This was our first time at Yutaka. We all had sushi type dinners. The meals were all very, very good. While there are many places to get sushi around the GTA, it's not easy to find good quality sushi. Yutaka is definitely one of the better places we have been to. I enjoyed the Chef Sushi Dinner which consisted of special selection of fish. The cut and quality of the fish along with the craftsmanship of the sushi was excellent. We live outside the GTA so getting downtown is not easy for us but we definitely plan to return when we can. We highly recommend Yutaka to anyone looking for a good quality Japanese meal.

Upon showing up, our reservation was not in their book, despite making and confirming the reservation through bookenda. First off, the food here is excellent and the fish is very fresh. We came here with a group of 8 colleagues for lunch. As with most work-related lunches, we requested a split bill. They said they could not split bills, so they gave us a single bill. When this happens, most restaurants are OK with charging different amounts across individual credit cards. Yutaka refused to do this and when asked why, they explained that they were busy (the restaurant was not even half full) and they only had one machine so it would take too long to stand there one by one. It's unfortunate they have this policy as we would be hesitant to return with a large group.

Thus establishment has very fresh seafood. The sashimi (I ordered a chef's sashimi dinner) was well cut and beautifully layout. The uni oyster shot was tasty without any fishy taste. For people who are not fond of raw meat, the restaurant has a great variety to choose from as well. The steamed clams and baked oysters were other items that we enjoyed very much. The portion is not big though and you can end up ordering a lot of dishes. So it's not a place you look for getting a good deal. But definitely one you want high quality Japanese food.

Fantastic! The food quality is good, the size of some special dishes are a bit too tiny. Other than that, everything is so good.

Overall the food was good, but we got the lobster after a strong recommendation from the waitress and we hated it. I feel like this should have be replaced at no cost to us (we still had to pay 18$ for the lobster, and only got a "free" roll that was worth much less).

Taking your father for sushi might be a regular occurance for some, but believe me, Yutaka’s Japanese cuisine (pictured above) is far beyond your regular maki. Not only is the seafood seasonal, it’s unbelievably fresh, still tasting of the waters from which it came. The presentation is fancy, though the room is not, so Papa will feel at ease. And completely satisfied after some of the best Japanese food in the city.
