Mosaic tile floors, stone columns and fabric covered wall panels are complemented by heavy beamed ceilings, hand blown chandeliers and curvy wrought-iron railings add a whimsical flair. Our eclectic menu is inspired by a combination of Italian, French, Spanish and Greek cuisines. Mediterranean Euro Delights share the menu with pizzas from our wood-burning oven, rich creative pastas and an array of the freshest of seafood dishes and innovative meat entrees.

    Fantastic place to wine and dine dinner for two. The service was excellent, and the food was delectable. Since it's not quite summer, dinner out in the patio was perfect in the evening. The ambience is perfect for that special occasion.

    pickypassengerVIP
    Dined on 3/17/2014
    This is the place! My wife and I have traveled to Little Rock for business several times in the past few years and have never had a satisfyingly prepared meal until Ya Ya's. Simple ingredients, impeccably prepared, pleasant service and pretty ambiance. As we both have small appetites, we split a spinach salad and the incredibly-prepared Penne Carbonara. It's not drowned in cream sauce, but is elegantly prepared with pulled rotisserie chicken (delicately seasoned), bacon, peas, penne and a very light sauce. In the wrong hands, this dish could have been much too rich. This place is a rare find, and I wish we had one here in Atlanta.

    Have always had great brunch experiences at YaYa's. This brunch was myself, my husband, son, daughter-in-law and 4 month old grandson. Overall the food was great. The only hiccup was the omelet (ordered from the kitchen) that was dry and not very flavorful. Although our table was big enough for all of us, the room wasn't big enough for our table. The person that had to sit in the aisle kept getting bumped by the waitresses or the other patrons.

    I have been to Ya Ya's several times for several different occasions and have enjoyed each and every one! The food has always been excellent and the service top of the line. I would think almost anyone would find something to fit the tatse and budget that would make it enjoyable. I have tried both lunch and dinner and as far as food and / or service both experinces were very very pleasing. The atmosphere is very comfortable and enjoyable. This restaurant is quickly becoming one of my most favorite go to places.

    We enjoyed a late evening weekend dinner at YaYa's. The food was excellent. The sommelier came around to offer suggestions - not pushy at all. The bottle he recommended was very good, and later research proved that it was very well priced. The service was excellent. We recommend the bruschetta appetizer - delicious! Though they did charge $1 for extra baguette slices to finish the wonderful cheese and tomatoes. Not sure why the quantity of toppings did not match the quantity of bread, but it was too good to leave on the plate. Meals were beautifully presented and quantities were sufficient. Side "market" salads were also very good. They offer pizza so our 12 year old was thrilled. It was a really enjoyable evening.

    the food was fantastic! wonderful visual presentation of all the food. Our waiter was great. had a great strip steak over a bed of toasted brussel sprouts, bacon and tiny potatoes, topped with almonds and a sauce. The steak was fantastic, perfect. Also, got an appetizer of calamari which my husband said was one of the best that he has ever had. topped off the dinner with a wonderful treat to celebrate my b'day. a rich chocolate brownie wrapped in a crusty toasted phyllo dough with a scoop of ice cream and a ton of chocolate ganache poured over it all with a mint leaf on top! it was brilliant. all I needed was some coffee to go with it. Great night at my new favorite restaurant (fantastic food), enjoyed my b'day gift card!

    My wife and I weren't able to go out on Friday night, so we took the opportunity on Sunday evening. Ya Ya's is a great place to celebrate a romantic holiday. The atmosphere is lively, but not too loud and the food is always excellent.

    The food and service was above and beyond any expectation that my girlfriend and I had for our Valentine's date night dinner. They had a pre fixe menu available, but we choose to go off of the regular menu and couldn't of been more pleased with our decision. Everything was cooked just how we ordered it and presented as if it were a 5star restaurant in a much bigger city. We will definitely be going back not only for the delicious dinner and wonderful atmosphere, but for the weekend brunch and lunch options they server as well. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

  • huge chunk of gristle.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    I took my girlfriend here on Valentine's day thinking it was a great place to eat a romantic meal. while the ambiance was nice, the food and service left little to be desired. Her steak had a huge piece of gristle dead in the middle. One so large that it should have been down right shameful to serve. Secondly, every table around us was treated to a serving of bread along with a signature dip almost as soon as they sat down. Our waitress didn't bring ours until after we received our main course. The waitress commented that she was sorry for the delay, that she was waiting on more to come out of the oven. Which would have been fine except we watched several others being served while she was "waiting" for ours and it was cold.

    Out of the Four Restaurants I visited while in Little Rock this weekend, YaYa's by far was the only one to have decent food-not the best in the world - but decent-especially for a brunch menu. I would definitely go again -mainly because of the impeccable service and friendly atmosphere.

    I am a frequent visitor for Sunday brunch. I love the food offered buffet style. Their is a pasta station and waffle station. I love the fruit and shrimp layout. There are lots of salads and plenty of deserts. Eggs Benedict, Prime Rib don't get any better. You can also order pancakes and French toast from the kitchen. The cost of the brunch is a little pricey but worth the splurge!!

    This is still one of our favorite spots in Little Rock. We started with the gnocchi and hummus. Both were excellent. I had the fillet and my wife had the roasted chicken. Both were cooked to perfection. We finished with the brownie, and that title doesn't do it justice.

    The service was absolutely amazing and began before we even walked through the door, as they were opened for us. We were quickly seated in a quiet location and the server began educating us on the chef's specials. As we agonized over which entree to select, our server delivered drinks and a delicious bread and dipping sauce. The meal was delectable and excellently executed but my favorite item was dessert. A freshly baked chocolate soufflé accompanied by a creamy vanilla bra nice cream. Over all a terrific experience. We will return!

    Yaya's didn't disappoint as always. My boyfriend and I went to ring in the New Years. Our waitress was very personable and patient, giving us tons of time and suggestions as we mulled over their long wine selection and great foods. By mistake we ordered an expensive wine (we are only 21 and did not want to spend almost $50 for a bottle) and she was so considerate and quickly took it back without a problem and helped us find good cheaper cocktails. The atmosphere is always great--music, tons of talking groups. It is definitely a young adult to even retired place, somehow with such a wide age group there it still all works. Love Yayas and Will definitely be back next time I'm home visiting!

    Great ambience, service, menu, drink and wine selection. I substituted whipped potatoes for the potatoes that normally accompany the signature chicken dish at the water's suggestion, and it was an AMAZING meal! My husband's lamb chops were the best he's ever eaten. My daughter's lasagna was wonderful. My in-laws both ordered filet mignon, which was cooked perfectly. For dessert, we ordered a brownie wrapped in phyllo dough and served with ice cream - it was very rich, delicious, and definitely recommended for sharing. We also got peach bread pudding, also served with ice cream. It was some of the best bread pudding I've ever had. Now it's your turn to go and enjoy all that Ya-Ya's has to offer
