At one time I would have recommended Yoshino's, but unfortunately the cuisine has taken a bad turn. Rather than serving fresh traditional sushi, Yoshino has migrated more towards the 'extravaganza' rolls that are not authentic and not satisfying for true sushi lovers. Though mayonnaise is sometimes used sparingly and to good effect in Japanese cooking, Yoshino has added it, in quantity, to some of its sushi dishes. Avoid the scallops/hotate. Despite what it says on the menu, it is not fresh scallop. It is some kind of mayo seafood mess. Not good. Thinking that it was a different dish and that I had misordered, I ordered scallops a second time. I left the restaurant feeling awful after having consumed all that mayonaise. In the afternoon Yoshino's seems to turn into a fast-fried-food specialist, serving fried chicken and other non-Japanese food with stale sushi rotating on the conveyor belt. I'm still looking for a good authentic Japanese restaurant in Fresno. Yoshino's isn't it, which is too bad. I'd like to see Yoshino lay-off the mayo and cream cheese, focus on freshness and quality more. Right now, I can't recommend it at all.

Pros: The stone counter is a nice place to eat and talk with one other person

Cons: mayonnaise. sushi could be fresher. menu is not authentic.

Our family loves Yoshino River Park. The selection of sushi is above average and attention to quality food preparation is apparent.

Our only complaint is the lack of inside tables. Only three dining tables inside compared to a couple of dozen sushi bar seats. There is plenty of outside searing but in fresno it is too cold or too hot to sit outside most of the year.

Staff is very friendly however more than once we were initially denied access to a table because we were a couple. They like to keep the tables for larger groups. Since we need disability access it is embarrasing to have to remind the staff of this.

It is worth the visit despite the occasional need to remind the staff of our seating needs.

Yoshino river Park is on the expensive side, less expensive sushi can be found however some of the specialties have topped the list of favorite foods of my wife.

PROS: Location, flavor of food, selection of sushi
CONS: lack of inside tables
