We arrived home in Vermont about 30 minutes ago and I am still blown away by how great Yosaku was. What a great surprise!! We ordered salmon, scallops, crab, kaki, and uni (sea urchin) nigiri... and all were fresh from the ME sea water.

everything on the menu is great.
service is good unless it's busy, but then any restaurant is like that. just make time. or call ahead.
it's more traditional than most other places in town. so the food is more authentic.
in my opinion. if you don't like the food at yosaku, then you probably shouldn't go to a traditional
japanese restaurant in japan.

Pros: nice people

Cons: when it's busy you have to wait

After eating sushi at many places during my travels around the globe, I'm always happy to return home to eat at Yosaku. While the service can be a bit slow, the help is always that- helpful. The atmosphere is great- especially outside. The bartenders are talented and the food is definitely worth the wait. The owner has been gracious every time we have stepped foot through the door. I highly recommend this restaurant. Just don't go if you're in a hurry.

Pros: Great sushi, fun atmosphere, great location

Cons: can be a bit of a wait.

This is hands down, the worst sushi place we have ever frequented. Each time we leave, we wonder why we go back. NEVER AGAIN! The service is awful, slow and painfully rude. The bartenders must be hired for their ability to get customers to leave the bar area quickly because they certainly aren't hired for their wonderful personalities. Bring your shaving kits too because you'll need to clean up during the days it takes for your food to arrive. Oh, and if your rolls are falling apart on the plate, don't bother to ask them to remake them. The owner of the place is awful. He couldn't care less if you never go back and he doesn't value you if you are a loyal customer either. Try one of the three other sushi places in Portland and leave this one to wallow in its own misery.

Pros: good patio in the summer

Cons: everything else about this place stinks
