  • "Tried Yaya's with a client this past week. Yaya's did an excellent job. From the moment I walked in the service was wonderful and the food was great as well."

  • "A table for 6 for a birthday celebration. The bouquet of flowers ordered thru Open Table and delivered by Flowerpetal.com was attractive and on our table when we arrived. Our server was professional, articulate, knowledgeable, attentive and humorous. She gave the impression that she really enjoyed interacting with us. Our whole table enjoyed her knowledge of the menu and her attention to detail. The food was stunningly good. I had delicious scallops; everyone had a different dish and they all were very pleased. Kudos to the chef! We will return."

  • "I met two friends for lunch the other day to celebrate a birthday. The server was friendly, humorous and knowledgeable about the wine list and the menu items. The table was cleared in a timely manner and then the staff let us celebrate in quiet. I've always enjoyed dining at YaYa's whether for lunch, happy hour or late night."

  • "Arrived with 90 year old (w walker), 85 yr old, husband, son and I'm in a leg cast. Hostess marches us thru restaurant (hard to navigate w walker) to horseshoe booth. When I said that wouldn't work for us (obvious right?) she rolled her eyes at us - she really did. Then she very begrudgend sat us at a smaller table for 4 and once again rolled her eyes at us. Had it not been for how exhausted the 90 year old was from navigating back and forth with the walker we would have left immediately. Food was ok Salads looked good but were not. Shrimp had to be self peeled, but good. Liked eggs Ben bar but eggs should have cooked more, yogurt bar nice touch, liked that desserts were bite sized and prime rib was good but not melt in your mouth."

  • "After driving past this place a million times and always seeing the parking lot full, I am glad I finally tried it. However, there was nothing remarkable about it, and it felt just average. The server was friendly and attentive, but we felt somewhat rushed. My kale salad had very large pieces of lettuce that needed to be cut better to be presented better and eaten more easily. The scallops were cooked well, and had a nice flavor. Prices were reasonable. My husband ordered the tenderloin medium and it came out medium rare...a common mistake, and he was fine with it, although not his preference. Yaya's was fine but didn't leave me with a big desire to come back because there are so many other restaurants to try."

  • "Pasta Pomodora - pasta was over cooked (shouldnt it hae been al dente??)Scallops on the other hand were perfect!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Excellent lunch menu. Received a very warm and formal greeting from the host. He was very knowledgeable about the menu selections. The Porchetta sandwich was delicious and the fries were perfectly seasoned. Will definitely go again."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Ya Ya's is an excellent place for Sunday brunch, daily lunch or dinner! They offer a wide variety of dishes, from a mouth-watering salmon salad, to roasted chicken, steak and daily seafood offerings. They give you the most amazing bread, with a dip similar to babaganoush. Try to save room for dessert! If you will, order the chocolate soufflé at the same time you order dinner because it takes 15 minutes to bake. You won't regret it! I'm not a drinker, but they have a well trained sommelier and an extended wine list."

  • "The whole evening was pleasant with memorable food and service. The atmosphere was rather non-descript but calming. Wine and food were classic good taste with a twist of interesting. Enjoyable and knowledgeable service made the whole experience most enjoyable."

  • "We had very good food in a comfortable setting. The service was excellent too."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The manager, Scott, was extremely helpful in selecting a Malbec for a business associate traveling in for a meeting. While I have been to Ya Ya's many times, I had never ordered the free-range chicken. Scott commented that the chicken is delivered by a local farmer on Thursdays. I cannot wait to take my wife back on a future Thursday evening so she can also know why I raved about it."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Overall good food. Prices a little high. Gnocchi was the best I've tasted, and the scallops were terrific. My wife's pizza and beet salad were both just average. Choc soufflé was very good."

  • "This is always our "go to" place for consistency with food, service and atmosphere. The music on the patio is great! You cannot go wrong with this place. The management is always on top of things and is very friendly. The bartenders are great too. Love the infused vodkas."

  • "Food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Can't say enough about the service she was great."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Staff was very friendly. Manager helped me locate the establishment on the phone when I was lost getting there. Waiters very patient and let us talk / visit as friends. Almost too hands-off though as we had to track our waitress down a couple times."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We were basically forgotten after we were sat for at least 10+ min. Tables sat right before and after us had appetizers before we were even greeted by a manager whom which we had to flag down! The server sincerely apologized but the management staff did nothing to attempt to make up for the mistake. Actually because of the gaff the manager hovered over us the entire evening overlapping with the server so we heard the same thing repeated all night. It would have been better if the manager would have just apologized and left us something as an incentive to come back next time while leaving the server to do his job. That said the food and beverages were excellent; I just wish the service matched the quality of the food."

  • "We have had the Salmon salad and their special fried chicken salad numerous times. The last few times we have been sorely disappointed with the overall taste and preparation of each. Something has changed the chicken salad used to have fried bits and lots of goodies in it, this time it looked like Super Batter egg rolls, whole on top, with very little inside. The salmon, a total disappointment, small and not as tasty as in the past. The nuts blue cheese, was barely visible. We won't be ordering the delightful salads anymore!!! Why change things????"

  • "This was the first time my husband has been to Ya Ya's and I had been there over 50 times through the years. He was so looking forward to it and sometimes when that happen a place will fall down. Ya Ya's was excellent and our server was fantastic which you normally don't get in the Chesterfield area. Very pleased overall!"

  • "I always have good service and food the staff/management are very friendly and welcoming"

  • "We frequent Ya Ya's only a few times a year, but each time it is enjoyable. The food is always good. The pastry wrapped brownie in chocolate sauce was a hit at dessert."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "We went to celebrate a birthday on Sunday and had the Sunday brunch. Food was excellent. It was a warm day and the indoor temperature was a little too warm. Our server was sweating. But with all the warming trays out, it may be hard to keep it very cool."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Timing was way off. We waited at our table over 20 minutes for a waiter. After ordering, it took much too long to get our food, and when we did, entrees were brought with our salads. Celebrated birthdays and were given complimentary dessert, but it was chosen for us instead of our personal selection, as had been promised. When we got our check, we were double charged for several items. We like this restaurant too much to not return, but had this been our first visit, i doubt we would."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "As usual total experience was very good--good food, good ambiance moderate prices"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Visit often- food always excellent. Only complaint is servers getting a bit pretentious / somewhat condescending in menu descriptions. Otherwise everyone else friendly. Really no need to offer so many different types of water! It's Chesterfield- great water. And could have done without the jam/bread/cheese tasting- regretted it. Their Chef bites are usually great. Food SO GOOD! Will be back often."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We have been going to Ya Ya's for 14 years. My husband actually proposed there. It has always been a favorite. Food has always been excellent. Love the chocolate souffle. On our last visit, food was unremarkable. We both ordered different pastas. We both were disappointed with the lack of flavor. We have never been to this restaurant and had a bad meal. We have eaten brunch, lunch and dinner throughout the years. Maybe just an off night. Service was great. We would still, however, recommend this this restaurant. Think it was just a bad night. Worth a try."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The service was fine, but we ordered the chocolate souffle when we ordered, when we finished and ask our server for it, she returned and informed us it would be another 20 minutes. We said to just cancel it. She brought it out in about 10 minutes, but it was severely undercooked. In addition, 2 of our 3 steaks were over cooked. Not a good experience."

  • "Dynamic menu keeps us coming back, food always done to spec. Good wine list and in-house Manhattan is best in St Louis."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Unusual cocktails are offered that were very tasty at a better price point than many establishments. Special tuna dish was done perfectly with fresh products (included an heirloom salad - good but not great). Bread and babaganoush spread was one of the highlights. Overall consistent each time we've gone with attentive and friendly service."

  • "Popular restaurant. Never fails to please. Highly recommend. Servers are knowledgeable and really care."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We had a lot of issues with service this visit. There was no server assigned to our table and we actually had the manager take our order. This was not typical for this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I have been to Ya Ya's a few times now and I each time I come away more impressed. Simply wonderful! I always look forward to meeting my friend there. Mmmmmm"

  • "Our brunch was quite impressive, the food was excellent and freshly prepared, service was top notch. We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Have been here many times and it is consistently good. This time I did not care for the entree. My salmon was over cooked and dried out. I tend not to complain because I don't want another piece brought to me after everyone at our table has already finished. Will stick to their wonderful chicken next time."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Went here for the first time. First I want to mention the service, which was excellent. As we approached, a host rushed to hold open the door and greet us. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. When I strained a bit to read the menu, she dashed off to bring me a pair of reading glasses! Again, when we left, several employees held the door and wished us well. Food was quite good, although the menu was not extensive. I had the paella, which was a generous serving of shrimp mussels and calamari, but could have used a little more kick in the spice department. Prices were very reasonable for the quality. The dining room is beautiful."
