Food, service & ambience was far more than expected. Late afternoon dinner reservation was met with no waiting & a great table. The wine list is extensive, with focus on old world wine. Honeyed prawns, sautéed green beans, beef with asparagus & chicken with vegetables were shared and definitely did not disappoint. We were not rushed, which is a definite... More

We have been going to Uncle Yu's in Livermore since they opened. By far the classiest Chinese restaurant I have ever visited. On an average night they serve more that 250 guests. Take a look at their wine list, it is quite comprehensive. My favorite is the Triple crown.

Food is very good and the service is normally good. If you can get seating away from the bar and entrance it can be very romantic and a good date place but pricy. Wise to preview the menu on line so you are aware of the cost. Great place for a special dinner.

4 of us had a wonderful meal. Probably one of the best Chinese restaurants I have eaten at outside of San Francisco.

Best Chinese food in Livermore. Great wine list, love the orange peel beef. Service can be a little spotty. Need reservations on the weekends

It's our understanding that Uncle Yu's in Livermore has recently changed ownership. We ate lunch there yesterday and were delighted that the food was still very good (maybe a little better) than in the past, and the service was great. Wishing them the best of luck.

Uncle Yu's is the place we go when we can't agree on a place for lunch. The lunches are good and priced well. Service is good for lunch. I wish I could say the same for dinner. Food is still ok, but not great and the service isn't good at all. Have tried this for dinner a multitude of times... More
