Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "We hadn't been to Ya Ya's for some time ... too bad for us. The food was really very good. There were three of us in our party and everyone really liked their entree. Crab cake appetizers were wonderful. Pasta was fresh. We did not stay for dessert, but it was nice to hear that they were still doing their wonderful chocolate dessert souffle."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Last time I went to Ya Ya's I had the most amazing kale salad and was so looking forward to having it again. This time the kale wasn't chopped but was in big huge pieces that had to be cut with hardly any dressing and frankly tasted awful. So disappointing!!"

  • "To my surprise because I signed on to the website I received a coupon for a Birthday Steak. I had the tenderloin and it was delicious! The other food presented at the table was also very good. I was a nice evening out."

  • "Came for the first time with a business associate. Had a hard time picking from all the choices on the menu. Food was great. I'm surely going back to try out more dishes."

  • "The food at Yia Yia's is consistently good, no matter what we order...great roasted chicken, chops, salads,etc. the service is always wonderful and no matter how busy they are we never feel rushed. The wait staff and management team make it A friendly atmosphere. It's a great place to go with friends or alone."

  • "If you are looking for a great place to dine outside in the spring, this is the place. Music begins at 7:00, the sun is not an issue, and the noise from the highway is minimal. Nice variety of menu choices, and this place is sensitive to the needs of diners with food allergies. Ask for Kennedy - great server!"

  • "My wife and I visited Yia Yia's for Mother's Day brunch. By far this gas to be one of the best brunches in the St. Louis area. The food was fantastic and our server extremely polite and efficient. Overall a fantastic experience for any occasion. We will return. By the way, I found the price reasonable, especially considering the quality of the offerings."

  • "Great food and more selection than you can eat! All of your breakfast favorites with seafood, salads, and desserts galore. This is one of the best brunches in the county!"

  • "A Monday night so not crowded. Ahai tuna was outstanding as good as I have had in Japan or anywhere else. Service was attentive and efficient. Back soon!"

  • "Loved he extra mile they took with all of their offerings. Hot items were hot, cold items were perfectly presented. The food was outstanding. On Mother's Day, there are obviously more kids than usual. Instead of being annoyed or dismissive of kids, I noticed the staff going out of their way to make the experience pleasant. I even noticed a waitress taking the time (without being asked) to move a family as the sun was too bright for three small kids. Their mother was off somewhere on her cell phone so that fact that the waitress took this on herself was very kind. "

  • "The best service I have had in St. Louis! My sister treated us to dinner for our wedding anniversary and everyone was so nice. The manager came over personally to congratulate us. They made us feel like regulars. Beautiful ambiance and very friend staff. Amazing food! Reminding me of my favorite fusion restaurant in LA. Highly recommended. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The service at first was attentive, but as the meal progressed, the visits declined. I had the impression that our drinks were more important than the food. When we asked for bread as the meal was served, I had to flag down a bus to obtain it. The noise level is deafening, with virtually no fabric, carpet, etc to absorb sound. The food,was satisfactory, and the bill reasonable."

  • "Beautiful plating, scrumptious food, consistently fine service and a knowledgable staff make this place a reliably wonderful dining experience. Add in few unique offerings to compliment a hard-to-choose-just-one menu, choice between outdoor and indoors dining and every visit is a fresh experience. And to top it all off... They do gluten- free very well, a requirement for my husband with celiac disease. My out of town guests are always pleased and my husband and I like to stop in for the occasional spontaneous week night out."

  • "It had been awhile since I had been to Ya Ya's but I felt good about suggesting it. I had always enjoyed dining on their patio. It took an unusually long time for our food to arrive. We thought they had forgotten to place the order. When it finally arrived, we received an apology from our waiter for the long wait. I ordered the beef tenderloin sandwich. The beef was cut in chunks like beef stew and was tough & gristly. I couldn't chew it. I have never sent food back but did this time. Unfortunately, the 2nd sandwich wasn't much better. There were a few chunks that were chewable but overall it was a huge disappointment. I would not recommend that sandwich. My friend ordered a different sandwich and hers was fine."

  • "I live in ATL but am in STL on business 2 to 3 weeks a month. Ya Ya's has become my favorite go to place for client lunches & dinners for small groups of 5 to larger groups of 14+. The food is delicious. Every time. It's so good I'm never fearful of trying something new although one of my peers orders her same dish every time (scallops & tenderloin). The service is impeccable. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about YaYa's. They outdo themselves each visit. "

  • "I made last minute dinner reservations for Easter, and put a note on there that my mother is disabled and needs to sit close to the front. They accommodated our dinner request and our table request. Additionally, the waitress immediately picked up on the fact that my mom has mental issues as well (dementia) and handed me her steak knife. The waitress was very attentive as well. We love Ya Ya's for special occasions already, but I really appreciate their special help this weekend. "

  • "To thank the manager and the staff of the restaurant for taking the time to give my crippled mother - her meal - seeing she didn't fall. Taking the time to be really careful and caring about a bad situation with the health of an elderly person. The family loved the food - and the serving of it. We will definitely be back and recommend the restaurant to others. I have eaten both lunch and dinner there in the past. I picked the restaurant for Easter because I knew it had the best brunch in St. Louis. "
