    10/10 experience. A Toronto late night bar vibe but in Vaughan! Never thought I’d be able to drive to Vaughan to get that experience. It was everything and more. Food to die for, drinks so good, ambience on another level. Loved it! Will 110% be going back and letting people to know to visit!

    Great food service and good value. There was a little mix up with the seating arrangements but the staff and host (Fiona, Sandy and Chris) were awesome. They took care of us after moving us to the counter seating. Provided superior service and friendly every stage of the brunch. They were very professional and casual. The interior is beautiful. Would def recommend to others for a fun brunch date.

    Got their Boozy Brunch - it was an amazing experience - amazing food, amazing service, amazing atmosphere. We reserved a table for 12:15, got there early around 12:10, ordered an appetizer, drinks, and two mains. Sandy was amazing and everything was out in less than 10 minutes, hot and fresh. The food was delicious - had the Wagyu Steak & Eggs, Lobster Tacos, and Matcha Cereal Milk French Toast. Sandy and other servers were always around making sure our water was filled, everything was tasting good, just overall amazing service. This was actually an anniversary brunch with my girlfriend, and they definitely made sure that we had a great time. Thank you so much to Sandy and to the rest of the staff - would highly recommend eating brunch here. Will definitely be coming back for dinner!

    Our server was so sweet and attentive last night. The food came out quickly despite it being relatively busy, and the food was very fresh. It isn’t cheap by any means, but I believe that the quality of food and atmosphere make the price very much worth it. I regularly go to Yokai Izakaya and have never had a bad experience. I’ll definitely continue to return!

    We saw Yokai Izakaya on Instagram and thought it looked like a great place to try. We decided to take a friend for his birthday. Overall impression is that it was a fun place to visit, but probably won't go back. The food was just okay. Some was too salty for our taste. Others were great! The service was great, and the wait staff was very attentive. Thank you, Nina! Our reservation was for 10:30. We finished eating by 11:05, so the service was a little rushed. It's a busy place Don't take my word for it though, as I said, it's a fun place to visit! Thanks.
