Yoshi's club is intimate, and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. If you want to get really up close and personal, then you should definitely make reservations for dinner beforehand so that you get priority seating in the front rows. We did, and sat just a few feet away from the stage. They offer the full drink menu inside the club, as well as their sushi, appetizers and dessert menus. The chocolate cake we ordered inside the club was more like a chocolate puck - really hard and not what we were expecting at all. They had other desserts that sounded appealing, so go for something other than the chocolate cake.
Before the concert, we had dinner and sat in the tatami area, which was really fun. We started our meals with pear-guava martinis, which went nicely with the pan-seared scallops, miso black cod, bansai roll and spicy scallop roll that we shared. The scallops were like buttah, as were the rolls. The cod was nice and fluffy, but extremely bland. We had to dip it into soy sauce to give it some flavor.
Although the food was not that spectacular, the concert was.

Great place to listen to live jazz music while enjoying japanese food.
Check the calendar because there is always a variety of musicians performing at the venue, not all the performers are strickly jazz musicians; there are salsa bands, R & B artist, blues musicians and much more.
I highly recommend to arrive early if you are going to the first show so that you can reserve the best seats. I prefer the booths, which are limited, but there are plenty of tables to choose from.
Because shows are limited to about an hour to an hour and a half, I would advise eating dinner in the restaurant before the show, or eat before you arrive.
You want to be able to enjoy the show instead of waiting around for your food to get delivered. Orders arrive relatively quickly, but when I go, I like to only order appetizers and cocktails.
The bar servers are very quick and it's a perfect spot for a date night or hanging out with friends.

It was an early date with Gayle years ago at Yoshi's that changed everything. The evening started in line for our Keiko Matsui when I was told that we should just be friends. Things continued to Dinner at their Japanese restaurant and I question that I'm still trying to answer properly. The show was thoroughly entertaining and the night club venue was intimate and comfortable. Our date ended with me passing her "test kiss" and the start of a wonderful relationship.
