Excellent choice for tapas.
Excellent choice for tapas. Each selection offered an exciting new taste sensation. Our favorite dish was the Georgia Shrimp. The portions were generous for tapas; four selections will be quite filling for a party of two. The service was great; appropriately attentive, but not overbearing. Excellent South African wine list.

I love the whole concept of
I love the whole concept of this place. American/South African Infused food, and it's pretty good. The fried chicken and malta dessert was my favorite :) I will keep this one on my top favorites list.

Great service here at Yebo. They took my reservation later than I anticipated because patrons wouldnt leave but they made up for it and the manager and other staff repeatedly apologized.
The food was delicious and even the two Namibians that I dined with remarked on the dishes even though it is a South African twist. I enjoyed the place and will return.

Great for guests
We took guests from out of town. This is a great restaurant for unusual fare. The food is delicious. The wine, terrific.
We had the beet salad, bangers and mash, crab cakes, seafood bowl, chicken curry bowl, and ostrich sliders. They were all satisfying.
We shall return.

fabulous girls' night out!
This was my second visit. The first allowed for a lovely afternoon chat with a friend on a saturday. The next was on a thursday, cold and rainy thursday. I reserved for a group of 6. The restaurant rang the afternoon of our 7pm reservation and quickly agreed that they would accommodate a party of 10. When we arrived, our table was set for 10! Only 7 showed, but the server never missed a beat! The dreary day quickly became a thing of the past as the service was prompt and delightful and the food yummy. The restuarant was filled with loads of interesting people deserving of watching and a phenomenal musician performed! I will absolutely return! My friends raved about it and plan to return, as wwell!

Overall really good.
On a Sat night, there's a musician who was pretty good. Food was familiar, but with a South African twist. Server was well informed and pleasant. Overall a good dining experience. Everyone enjoyed their food in a party of six. Lemon shrimp salad, Mac n cheese, fried chicken were some of our choices.

I had read great reviews of
I had read great reviews of the food at Yebo so decided to check it out with some girl friends. The good reviews are definitely deserved. The food was delicious; everything we tried was great. The portions are small so be prepared to share lots of dishes. I will definitely go again and try the items we didn't get to.

Great overall experience.
Great overall experience. The food was different, cleverly prepared and delicious. The small portions are more substantive than traditional tapas. The service was impeccable, and the outdoor dinning full of interesting vistas. Moderately priced.

Yebo is fun spot with a unique menu and pleasant vibe. Whether for a business lunch or evening cocktail, Yebo has never let me down.

Service and consideration
Service and consideration of guests was exceptional and much appreciated! Love the small plate concept and the desserts are divine.
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Unassuming, simple place but with quite an interesting menu at very reasonable prices, ideal for a quite bite after or before the movies. My smoked spinach salad and fried chicken was delicious and my husband really liked his beet salad and curry. Wine list was awesome and service nice and attentive. We will definitively come back.

Just go and enjoy the food and have fun. The food is good and Rib Shack red blend is so good and smooth.

A Reason to go to Phipps Plaza
It may seem odd to call a place in a mall a neighborhood gem, but if you live in Buckhead or nearby it's true. Yebo has a friendly, low-key vibe. After a few visits, during both peak and off-peak times, we've been pleased with the experience. On one visit we sat at the bar and chatted with the delightful Shawna (sp?) while sampling a few small plates and wines. Most recently was on a busy Friday evening at a table with three of us. Be sure to reserve a table! If we had not we would have had a 45 minute wait. Dishes our table enjoyed: Red bean hummus, beet salad, mussels, and Georgia shrimp. All delicious. Yebo is owned by the same folks as 10 Degrees South on Roswell Road.

It's a South African Gem!
Yebo is my favorite go-to place for fun, entertainment and dining in Buckhead. The staff are exceptional and greet you as a long lost friend every time. The food is affordable, consistent and great tasting. You know you are always going to have a good time, a good feed accompanied by great wine and cocktail choices. It's five stars from me.

Patio bar with view on Ptree rd!!
Enjoyed the place. Very vibrant. Young professional crowd. Multiracial crowd. And the cherry on top was the patio bar with the nice view: Perfect for a hot Friday night in Atl.....

Great Girls Night OUt
This was a great pick for the night. We had a great table outside so people watching was easy. The food was EXCELLENT! Popcorn was to die for. I have the Curry Chicken traditional bread bowl and it did not disappoint. The only issue we experienced was slow service but we figure it was a busy Saturday night so it was no big issue. I will be telling people about this restaurant and I will be back!

The Grape got an Upgrade
My friend and I came here for dinner on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. I haven't heard of it before, so I wanted to check it out. It turns out, Yebo is where the old Phipps Grape used to be, and it's a neighborhood improvement if you ask me! The outside area is cozy, well set up and has its own outdoor bar. The inside is well appointed, the bar and seating areas are both great for groups or small parties. The food was AMAZING as were the beverages and service. The live music and entertainment added a lot to the overall experience. I highly recommend it!

Great food and wine list
This is a great restaurant. Lots of different things I wanted to try. Great wines. I loved sitting on the patio at night.

Ye I is my favorite restaurant.
Ye I is my favorite restaurant. The food is consistently excellent; however, this time I was disappointed by the bar. I looked forward to having the "Zulu"' which was absolutely delicious the first time I had it. This time it was not very good. I should have sent it back, but declined to do so.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yebo is a fun Buckhead hot spot!
Our family enjoyed discovering Yebo on our Atlanta vacation. It was just a quick walk from out hotel and the outdoor patio was filled with locals. After being seated, it took me a few minutes to realize the amazing music was actually coming over the speakers from the live guitarist/vocalist on the patio - amazing! The truffle fries, beet salad, mussels, mac & cheese, cous cous and bread bowl we tried were all excellent and the ambiance just added to the flavor. Thanks for a great night out!

In love with Yebo...
I have been to Yebo on several occasions. The atmosphere, food, drinks, and service have all been nothing less than amazing. I always drink the Moscow Mule. Sooooo good!!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall I enjoyed my experience at the restaurant. The food was good and so was the atmosphere of the place. The one thing I did not enjoy as much was the noise level inside the restaurant, it was really loud. The people were fine, but the music was way louder than it should be indoors. There was no party inside, it was just groups chatting and I can barely hear myself over the music. The service was ok, though I do wish the server was a bit more attentive. The food was really good, the only thing I did not care for was the bread bowls, the one I had was the seafood. It was mediocre and bland. There wasn't really any flavor so that was disappointing. Other than that, the place was good. I definitely recommend this place for a night out.

I have eaten three times at
I have eaten three times at Yebo in the last one year. They have some great tasting tapas. The food is very flavorful and delicious. It is a great place to hangout and very reasonably priced. I do wish they would expand their menu especially the large plates section. If you are hungry and looking for large portions, then it is not the most ideal place.

Everyone in the group (3)
Everyone in the group (3) enjoyed. The Bread Bowl was excellent.The service was wonderful, one of our group had a special request , the waitress was eager to and found a solution to her menu request.
Will definitely return and recommend to others!

Great place to dress up and have drinks & yummy food! Highly recommend!!!

Just What Phipps Needed
Yebo is a lovely place for just a drink with appetizers, a light meal or just dessert. The food is a delightful range of unusual to standard small plates but even the standard dishes have a unique and memorable preparation. The hummus is made with red beans rather than garbanzos. The mussels are in a white wine sauce that is made creamy with butter. Larger plates feature the newly standard sliders but these sliders are made of lamb or ostrich. Many wines by the glass and fun featured cocktails. The best place to sit is outside; listening to the entertainment, watching the street and other patrons. The other patrons are eclectic but all seem very happy. The atmosphere is fun. The service was excellent when we were there.

2nd Visit in 2 Weeks
Back at Phipps again this week and decided we wanted to see if Yebo was really good or we caught them on a good day and we were in a good mood. Our 2nd visit was good as the 1st. We had a different waiter who was as pleasant and attentive as the one we had last week.. We tried different menu items. The beef jerky was South African biltong style. Good but not for everyone. The lamb lollipops were even than the lamb sliders we had last time. The Malva Pudding is a deliciously dense caramel bread pudding topped with ice cream. It was VERY GOOD but did not equal the Foie Gras Pancakes we had last week in complexity and "foodie interest." Again, sitting outside seems to be the real draw here. The scene inside seems to be a bit dark and sedate.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique food, nothing crazy
Sure, there are ostrich sliders and crab tacos, but none of the food has the overwhelming South African vibe that you may be seeking. Hummus with vegetables, beet salad, beer... and the music was all modern stuff you'd hear on the radio. A good experience and good food, but if you're looking for authentic, this probably isn't it.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice mix
This is a great mix of South African snacks, street food, and flavors with an American spin. Delicious! Also, great for sharing or ordering on your own.

Yebo is a tapas style extension
Yebo is a tapas style extension of 10-degrees South. The food was flavorful and the staff was extremely friendly in offering excellent selections during my experience. The bar scene was very energetic and the community table gives you an opportunity to engage in conversation with other patrons. I'll definitely be visiting again.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yay, Yay for Yebo!
I brought a friend from out of town, who had never had South African food, and he was just completely "wowed" by Yebo. Food, atmosphere, service were all magnificent. Will definitely return soon. A great place for Sunday dinner.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
enjoyed the food
Good fresh food, hefty portions although tapa style
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A few things you have to try are the truffle fries, the fried chicken, the shrimp salad, and the chicken curry bread bowl!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made a reservation on open table which made it pretty simple. Was seated right when I got there. The place has a nice decor and the food is amazing. I had ostrich sliders, Mac and cheese, lamb lollipops, and my gf had the seafood bread bowl. We really enjoyed our food and the wines are pretty good as well.

Fun South African Experience
This restaurant has some very good South African wine. We had the 2007 Meerlust Rubicon, which despite having a little age is still a big, full-bodied wine. The food is delicious, especially Chicken Curry and Bobotie bowls. The live music (we were there on Sunday evening) made you forget that you were next to the parking lot. Great, fun place for good South African food and wine!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
WOW - the food was absolutely great
What a find - I was really pleasantly surprised when I met a few friends out at Yebo the other evening for dinner before a show. The food was creative and totally delicious. I had the most amazing popcorn appetizer - believe it or not - piping hot. Be adventurous and order up some fabulous food at this cool new restaurant.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
The chicken curry bunny bowl and shrimp with fried grits were both fabulous! I don't even like grits but in this dish they were perfect.
