Had their halibut dinner special which was outstanding. One of the best I have had in St. Louis. Paired very nicely with start and citrus and cooked to perfection!

I took my friend to lunch at Ya Ya's for her birthday. The entire experience was wonderful. The ambiance is wonderful, the staff friendly and quick and best of all the food was amazing. The whole time was great. We are certainly going back!

Restricted Diet- Caters to us all!
Because of my mother's health concerned, we chose Ya Ya's. We absolutely love everything we've ordered and always have wonderful service! They always take my mom's special request without hesitation. Love this restaurant!

We have been to Ya Ya's many times for dinner. It's always a wonderful experience and the food is amazing. This was our first time for brunch and we weren't disappointed! Everything from the buffet to the mimosas was just perfect! Highly recommend Ya Ya's for dinner and brunch!

Celebrated a birthday this past Sunday at Ya Yas. First time at restaurant for Sunday Brunch. Was very impressed with the food selection and the great service. Look forward to coming back.

Excellent Dinner and Service
Mussels, fresh ricotta as a spread, Haddock, Tasmanian salmon, special chicken dish, paella along with creme brule and bread pudding. Quite a feast.

The experience was great! One small problem was my steak which was ordered medium came out rare and had to be sent back but besides that issue which was immediately corrected everything else was fabulous.

A great find for Sunday Brunch and a great price! The food was fantastic!

Have been to this Bistro numerous times and have never been disappointed in the food or in the service. The wine selections are quite reasonably priced and very good. My hats off to the sommelier.
Would go back there any time I had an opportunity, for a good dining experience!

Great Food, Interesting Service
This was our 2nd time at Ya-Yas, and the food was excellent on both occassions. Our server on this last visit definitely needed more training. She was not very knowledgeable of the menu or wine list. And, she forgot things a couple of times. We never saw the manager on this occassion. Despite fair service - I'd still recommend Ya-Yas. Make sure you try the gnocchi appetizer - it's divine!

Great menu, food, and restaurant is very accommodating.

This was our second trip to
This was our second trip to YaYa's and it did not disappoint. We both had fish, salmon and scallops and both were excellent. The salads were very good as well. The chocolate souffle is a must. Altogether, a very nice dinner at a fair price.
7/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Consistently good food.
We go to Ya Ya's frequently, because we know what to expect every time. The hummus and bread that they serve prior to the meal are dangerously good. The salads are excellent - creative and filling. The other entrees have always been delicious as well.
My only complaint is that two times in a row I made a reservation at an outside table and when we got there we were told that we had to wait until other diners were done eating before they would seat us. I thought the whole point of making reservations was that there would be a table waiting for you when you arrived.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun with friends
I met a couple of friends at Ya Ya's while I was in St Louis for a visit. We had a fabulous evening on the patio-unheard of in July in St Louis!- the wine was great and the appetizers (especially the crab cakes) were fabulous.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
good service, good wine, I ordered the scallops which were good but too salty for me. However I will go again
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall delicious but some problems
The food, overall, was quite good (and we are foodies). There were a couple of problems; for example the salmon flatbread was dry, salmon was overcooked, and it had peculiar combinations that did not go at all. All 4 of us at the table could not eat it. The mussels were cooked in a delicious broth, but the mussels, themselves, were tough & overcooked. My paella was fantastic, with generous portions of seafood, but it had a bunch of canned tomatoes on it that took away from the fresh "pop" that is typical of good paella. So this was sort of our experience - there were some delicious menu items, but a lot of things needed just a bit of tweaking. Our server was lovely.

Ya Ya - Yeah Yeah!
Began dinning at Ya Ya's the week it opened, but have not been there in some time...MISTAKE! Still a great place for dining for any occasion. Atmosphere, large selection on menu, excellent food, great portions, good service,and at a price that a diner could afford when a good meal is what one is looking for.
Mark our server was very good, both from knowledge of the menu to just being there when something was needed, but not pushy.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our fourth time here
This was our fourth time here and again, the food was very good. We had steak and seafood and both were of high quality. The menu has plenty of varied choices and there are some different drink options. Same with desserts. We'll be regulars.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love This Place!
The menu is eclectic without being weird and many, many small plates offered which is a foodie's treat. I love the complimentary warm bread served with a dip. The calamari were great as we told Peter we did not want tough pieces, and wow, it was spot on and with two great dipping sauces. Crabcakes are good--not too much filler but the crab pieces are much smaller than we like.
The decor is also awesome. My entire family agreed they could sit and relax all evening. We were there on a Sundaye vening so noise volume was low which is what we like.

Great Sunday Brunch
Had always wanted to try the Sunday brunch and finally made it. Worth the wait! One of the best brunches we've experienced. Many outstanding food options--seafood was particularly tasty that morning. Even appreciated how items were organized and set up. Dining companions had bloody marys and declared them excellent. My mimosa was okay but not sure how to make those sparkle anyway. Like the multiple desserts cut in small pieces so we could try them all. Nothing disappointed. Looking for an excuse to go back very soon.
Staff person was fun and friendly but could have been more attentive and on top of our requests.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous Sunday Brunch!
Four girlfriends since we were kids get together for Christmas and Birthdays....Last December 2012 we enjoyed our Christmas party over Sunday Brunch and had a great time chatting and catching up with each other as we enjoyed trying the wonderful variety of food choices, and each one we tried was delicious!
One of my friends enjoyed it so much, she bought a gift certificate on our way out of the restaurant for a family member.
It was sooooo good, that I recommended it to my family who went twice with their group of friends because they enjoyed it so much the first time.

Still great after all these years
Having moved from Chesterfield to Belleville (13 years ago), it has been ten years since we've dined here, and twenty years since we first dined at Ya Ya's in Kansas City. This restaurant that we once frequented is still a very good place. Food. Service. Atmosphere. Highly recommended.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose Ya Ya's based on a previous visit where we just stumbled upon this unique restaurant. Our first visit was just drinks at the bar. But we were so impressed by the dedication and passion of the staff, the menu, the fact that Ya Ya's is a sustainable restaurant, their seafood is fresh each day, etc. etc. So we booked a reservation for this weekend as our pre-symphony concert dinner. What a treat! The waiter was outstanding and extremely attentive. Since I have a gluten/wheat allergy, we were thrilled to find many items marked gluten free on the menu. We will definitely be back!

Service was excellent. Our server, Brook, was as helpful as any I have experienced. The food was very good with a wide variety of choices. We definitely will return.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
There are a lot of things to admire about Ya Ya's. The food is always great. We like the fact that the menu never gets stale. New dishes appear regularly but old favorites remain. The service is great. Some of the service staff have been in place since Ya Ya's opened, which makes for a very personalized service experience. The result is a great neighborhood place with warm ambience and great food.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
An all round great place!
The food is superb! I love the salmon salad, and if you're having dessert, don't miss the chocolate souffle. Kim is an excellent server there, as are many of YaYa's servers. She sets the bar for the rest.
10/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love Ya Ya's
This is one of my favorite restaurants in St. Louis! Great atmosphere, amazing service, outstanding food. Always a fabulous experience here.

Lunch on my birthday
Great hummus to share. Then the pizza of the day. I got a free dessert since it was my birthday and I had the wonderful bread pudding. Fun lunch with good food

An enjoyable evening
I took a group of six to Ya Ya's for a Saturday night supper. Despite being full, the service was excellent, our waiter was attentive and our food arrived in a timely manner. The food was very good and if you are a fan of calamari, I would recommend it as an appetizer. My wife and I had been at Ya Ya's on date night two weeks prior and the waiter who served us that night recognized and acknowledged us even though he was serving in a different part of the restaurant.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
New Menu Items
My wife and I both departed form our usual orders and tried new menu items. So pleasantly surprised. The Bailey Crem Brulee was absolutely fantastic.

Love this little place. Great food, great drinks. Will Return
11/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful lunch there. I had the salmon salad, served up with warm bread and out-of-this-world eggplant dip! If you have room for dessert, the chocolate soufflé will be perfect.

We love the food, wait staff and comfortable atmosphere, inside and out - plus it is close to home.

West County Restaurant
A wonderful, well established eatery in West County. Consistent quality of food, great service and a lovely setting, including a nice outdoor patio for good weather, day or night.
They vary the menu which keeps it interesting, but always quality food.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
We'll be back
Our waiter was excellent. He planned our lunch experience and gave us time to visit before taking our orders. When we asked about the dip that was served with the bread, he went out of his way to tell us all about it. As we stayed a long time no one rushed us away. The food was wonderful. Thank you for a great dining experience- we will be back!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We sat and each of us shared where we were 50 years age!

We always enjoy the meals
We always enjoy the meals at Ya Ya's. We appreciate how you can purchase a half of glass of wine off of their very good wine list. That way you can sample a variety of wines. The service is always good and attentive.

Brunch was great
I've been to Ya Ya's many times for lunch and dinner and always have had a terrific experience. This past Sunday my family and I went to Ya Ya's for brunch and it was fantastic. There was a great variety of food choices, the made to order eggs were perfect and the service was great.
Will have brunch there again.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a little extended family get together. Reservations were quick and easy. Got there early and enjoyed happy hour at the bar. They were very accommodating holding out table. Great meal. Good staff.

Terrific Thanksgiving Day
Terrific Thanksgiving Day buffet. Food was very well prepared and fresh. Our server, Trisha kept plates cleared, wine poured and coffee cups filled. Will be back again.

Great food and attentive staff
In town for the weekend and Ya Ya's was recommended for the food and atmosphere; it did not disappoint. The menu was diverse and the specials were appealing. We opted for two entrees off the menu with a green house salad. The food was excellent; my steak was medium as requested and very flavorful. The portion sizes were appropriate, price was right, the staff and managers were attentive and friendly. All in all a very positive experience, would recommend to others travelling through the area or who live in West County to give this gem a try.

My friends and I have been
My friends and I have been there several times for the Sunday brunch and it always just excellent! altho the price went up a couple dollars since we were there last. I dont drink,so it didnt bother me,but my friends were disappointed in the doing away with the unlimited bloody marys or mimosas. We always enjoy our visits there.
