Diner Reviews
  • "Try to get Adam as your waiter. Knowledge about the dishes and wine choices and appropriately attentive. First rate. Food preparation, presentation and taste was all very good. Place seems always busy; there must be a reason."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Of the 4 entrees we ordered, the trout was excellent but the others were mediocre at best. Disappointing as the fish special was highly recommended by our waiter. Service was slower than usual."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We dined here on a Friday night. I had the duck and my companion had the carbonara. We each enjoyed our dish. He had enough to have his for lunch the next day. We started with the spinach salad, which is really good. There are some interesting wines by the glass and the prices are pretty reasonable. Service is professional. Parking is easy. We enjoyed our dinner."

  • "we went there on Sunday, had a great meal, the salmon was cook to order and delicious as well as the trout, and on Sunday the wine bottle are 1/2 price!!!! great. Our waiter Sasa did an excellent job"

  • "We wanted to take some out of town relatives to a local restaurant that would demonstrate the quality of the restaurant scene in the Kansas City metro. Our choice of Ya Ya's Euro Bistro didn't disappoint. Each of the entrees we selected from the varied menu was delicious, and the wine was top notch. The service was attentive but not intrusive. I'd recommend it to a friend."

  • "We were very sad to learn that YaYa's will be moving soon to the 135th & Metcalf area. First WestChase Grill closes, now YaYa's moves from this area....what a great loss. I can't believe any real estate manager would think a Containers and More store will ever supplant a great restaurant like YaYa's. This has been a special occasion restaurant, a lunch place with the girls, a romantic dinner for two and never fail menu--how sad to think it is leaving! We already drive from Lenexa to Leawood for this great place and can't imagine driving as often to 135th & Metcalf. Sob! We're so sad to see you go."

  • "What a great find! We really enjoyed the food - fun and flavorful - and my cocktail was perfect. They are supposed to move a couple of miles away soon, and I am glad we tried it while they are still in this location - it was quite nice, and the patio was beautiful!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I had friends in town and needed to find a place that could seat 7 on fair short notice. YaYa's accomodated us and everyone was impressed by the food from starters to dessert."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The server was completely awkward - he approached us without an word and started rattling off the specials without a hello or offer for drinks. When we said we needed a minute to look at the drink menu, he waited 15 minutes before returning. Then was oddly agitated and asked what we wanted to order - no niceties. We ordered our wine and when he delivered it, he asked is we wanted an appetizer and we said yes, a salad. He responded, do you want me to order that now? His irritated attitude continued throughout the meal and the entire experience was terrible. We had been there many times prior and had him before with the same terrible service - we won't return if this is what we can expect. Also, it is a sea of grey hair patrons!"

    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I surprised my sister for her 48th Birthday! We live 3 hours apart and this was a half way point for us. Even though my family got lost for an hour, our waitress kept me and my daughter entertained while we waited on them to arrive. Food was excellent and the wine was most enjoyable. My family loved this place. We will be back. Thanks to all the staff that waited on us, Sheila Woosley"

  • "Will miss them in "my" neighborhood. Will make the trek to 135th when they move, but probably not as often."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I met a friend @ Ya Ya's - we wanted someplace that would offer healthy selections as my friend is gluten & dairy free. She ordered the Atlantic salmon and substituted the potatoes with another selection. They were happy to make the changes. She said it was absolutely delicious! I ordered the steak and quinoa salad which is thinly sliced steak over a bed of quinoa & a few other veggies. The server was proactive and warned me there were no mixed greens in this dish which I appreciated. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly - medium rare. Unfortunately the steak and quinoa were both completely flavorless. I added salt and pepper and that helped, but I wouldn't order this dish again. Very busy & noisy restaurant! Prepare to talk loudly. :)"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Service was unusually NOT great. For example, hot water served, then took 7 or 8 minutes to find server to ask for a tea bag. Also took too much time (had an older gentleman who should have had something to snack on) to see him again to request bread and appetizer. Check was presented in the middle of main course - when I asked to please hold it since we would order coffee and desserts (each member of the party ordered a dessert) - was told that's policy to leave it - and he did! We did not want to rush our guest in any way."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We've been to Ya Ya's several times, and while we don't find it to be the best meal in town, it's got such a good menu that hits on many different areas, i.e. something for everyone. (We are lovers of their beef carpaccio and of course, everyone loves the baba ganoush.) This feels like coming home."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Our server, Ashton was wonderful!! 5 star service and a killer smile to go with it. He deserves kudos for being at the top of his game! This was a birthday celebration and I had called ahead and asked for a filo brownie with a candle. The arrangements were made through the manager. When out meal was finished, Ashton asked if we would like dessert. I said something had been pre ordered (which ruined the surprise). He was not told of this and I put him at ease and then went to talk with the Manager. He was a bit dismissive, gave an insincere apology and blamed the person or persons who were to have read his notes. I told him that his responsibility was to do a follow up"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Not having tried this restaurant before my wife and I didn't know what to expect. We were both pleasantly surprised and look forward to going back again. The service was fabulous, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and tastey."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This regional restaurant has always delighted us. The menu is always fresh and the dinners are elegantly prepared. This isn't a sports bar and its not the Ritz. Instead, this restaurant is better classified as a haunt. You just love to hang out here and eat great food. The restaurant atmosphere isn't cluttered which makes for a pleasant experience. See you there."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Reasonable restaurant in a crowded field. Food was well-prepared and presented but a bit pricey. Quantity was reasonably small. One leaves sated but not stuffed. Every waiter/waitress/host greets your party as you are seated. Nice touch at first but on leaving seemed contrived. Party orders small plate, salad and scallops. All well-done, artfully presented. Noise level was quiet with no interference from tables around us. Server needed better training and presentation."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "This is a great spot for business lunches. The food is excellent and the place is quiet enough to have good conversation. The wait staff was efficient for the times when you do not have a long time to use for lunch."

  • "as always had a great meal with my girlfriend for valentines day. the service was just as great."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I visited Ya Ya's for a Valentine's Day celebration. We had not been to Ya Ya's in a while but it seems to be one of those places that is alway good and always consistent. The wine was great, our meals were great. And, it's an appealing, comfortable."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It was our first time eating here. We went earlier than we would normally have, but really glad we did. Everyone - staff and regulars who were hanging out and eating at the bar - were sooo friendly and down. The food was wonderful. I didn't really care for the pan steak, but the chicken was great. I like to try new foods, so I run this risk some times. Great place! We will be back! We don't drink wine, so no idea on this, but it had a large selection."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Our dining adventure at Ya-Ya's was mixed. We ordered the roasted beet salad as an appetizer which was good. The next course was the salads. Mine was so -so since I had the ceaser and the croutons were very stale. But the entree made up for all the stale croutons. I had the scallops and I have to say they were the best I ever had in any restaurant in Kansas so far. perfectly cooked and seasoned on a bed of orzo. Very tasty!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "food was fine , service perfect---as always. Chef or kitchen manager was upset (maybe justified--busy!) and was loud (unjustified)."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Salmon was too fishy tasting. Shrimp linguini was not good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was only fair. Prices were way too high. Paying extra for a salad with a main entree is ridiculous. Waiter was not overly friendly. I can get better food and service for half the cost elsewhere. I will not be returning."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Larry did a great job of checking on our drinks and to see if we needed anything else. Other staff helped out too. Good place to go to for most any meal."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "The atmosphere is conducive for a romantic evening or a relaxing night out with friends. We tried four of the pasta dishes which were fabulous. The presentation was inticing. Of course, the bread and baba ganoush starts the meal out and shouldn't be missed."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Our fantastic waiter told us they have a new pastry chef who created this brown butter cake. We tried it and it melts in your mouth! It's amazing and technically doesn't need the berries on the side. Our lunch was also great but this new cake was the highlight of the meal."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Our waiter was great. He was professional, kind and had great timing."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "I have ate here many times but mostly for lunch on my wife's break they are very good about not coursing your meal and letting everything come out as its done as long as you ask. Although the last time I ate here for dinner the service was lacking im not sure if it was because my wife and I are a young couple and servers perceive us as bad tippers? But my wife is also a server at a fine dinning restaurant we tip accordingly. The food was outstanding and any changes we made to our meal we kept and the food was great"
