    YaYa's never fails to impress! Our waitperson, Eldon, deserves a big shout out; he was outstanding in every way. The crab cakes were perfect, the scallops about the best around, the peach tart with Chantilly creme was to die for, and the YaYa dirty martini my new favorite cocktail. This restaurant remains one of our top favorites in Denver. I've had lunch and dinner here a number of times and hope to try the Sunday brunch soon. You can't beat the patio overlooking the pond on a pleasant evening, either.

    Ya Ya's 5280 dinner menu was incredible for all 4 courses including the wine specials. They outdid themselves compared to other 5280 dinners I have had. Ya Ya's has been one of my constant favorite spots since it opened about 15 years ago. The service was fantastic! I recommend Ya's Ya's for everything from lunch, dinner. brunch and Happy Hours. I always love their outdoor patio when weather permits!

    Ya Ya's has one of the best wine lists in Denver and if you know what to look for you can find values that are hard to find anywhere else. The food for restaurant week was good, the braised pork had incredible flavor although presentation was lacking. Definitely one of my favorites for overall value and dining experience.

    Until recently, we had the pleasure of dining (and specifically chose to dine) at Ya Ya's twice in a couple of weeks. For no reason we had not kept the restaurant on our "radar". As we indicated in our "dining experience", it will not fall off our "radar" again because the ambiance, food, service and noise level are outstanding. Specifically for Open Table, re acoustics, your categories go from "moderate" to "energetic". Really?! Frankly, "energetic" should be classified as "obnoxious" or "yelling only". Ya Ya's, as one can see when observing the ceiling and wall, has taken that into consideration with its choices. Applause! The additional consideration and expense is what one expects with fine dining.

    Ya Ya's ended up being the 1st restaurant my husband and I both enjoyed and will return to AFTER restaurant week is over. As a vegan, I was pampered and therefore ate the most amazing 4-course meal. Our service was friendly, attentive without being annoying. The menu options and wine list covers the desires of dining groups, large and small. We are planning a return trip to try out the lunch menu soon.

    This was a great place for my friends and colleagues to get together. We happened to be there during restaurant week and had a great 4 course meal for a great price. It was nice to have the many courses so we could spend the time catching up. The restaurant was very nice to not rush us. The atmosphere is also very nice.

    This was our first and last time at Ya Ya's. I had the avocado humus, which was amazing! My husband had their soup, which came luke warm, perhaps that's how it's supposed to be, but he likes his soup hot (me too, so I wouldn't have enjoyed it either). Then Entrees, I had the cider braised pork, which was delicious and nice and hot! My husband had the smoked roasted pork loin and it was cold, he said it seemed old/not fresh at all (like they just microwaved it, but clearly didn't microwave it long enough because it wasn't warm at all). To top it off there was a hair on his pork - not okay! We both had the phyllo wrapped brownie, mine was raw, my husbands was cooked perfectly. Very inconsistent! I can not recommend this place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    We loved the selections on the 5280 menu, with the exception of the cauliflower steak, which was rather misleading. The waitress recommended this item, but neglected to mention, that it was a vegetarian choice (she even preset a steak knife for it). After we brought it to her attention, she informed the manager, who offered to serve a steak in addition which we appreciated, particularly because we recommended Ya Ya to our friends (first time visitors) and we didn't want to disappoint them. We also had to ask for bread, which we believe should be standard service with a soup/salad course.

    I always enjoy my meal at Yia Yias. Don't miss their bread served with baba ganoush and pesto olive oil. So good. Mussels were not my favorite, too many empty shells And closed mussels. All of their main courses are delicious. And their brunch is really good.

    Ya Ya's is a great place for a foodie to eat - the manager and staff know their stuff, and are happy to talk ingredients, wine, preparation. The service is just as great. My dining companions were an hour late, so the staff kept me company and made me feel like family. Ya Ya's is friendly and inviting, a place where food nerds and non-nerds can all enjoy themselves. I've been here every time I've come to Denver on business (twice now), and that it is a trend that will continue. Do yourself a favor and no matter what you have for dinner, have a scoop of the mint ice cream for desert. It's life changing!

    Lots of brunch options in Denver and Yaya's is a great one. The price is pretty good and the food is better. I would have liked to have seen a few more breakfast items, but that said there was a ton of quality product presented. There was a carving station and omelette station, both of which were great. Also pancakes and French toast (try the lemon Mascarpone) were prepared in the kitchen, which delivered very fresh food that also incurred a wait so order that stuff immediately as it'll take a while. Definitely a good value for the quality of food and I would go back again without hesitation.

    Great food and service. The waiter was very attentive and helpful. The food was divine. Love that everything is made fresh and to order. Met an old friend for dinner on a busy Friday night and we sat and talked long after we finished our meal. Even though they were busy and I'm sure they wanted to turn the table, we received no pressure to move on.

    Being from Colorado, the waitress knew nothing about where Palisade is located nor the history of its peaches. Maybe the description came from the chef, but those of us from Colorado and know its produce find it offensive that people who move here try to wing it. The waitress stated basically there is only one type of peach from Palisade, Colorado - WRONG! The food is always good here and glad to see you are offering Gluten Free options.

    Decided at the last minute to go out for dinner. Made Reservation for two approximately 15 minutes from present time using Open Table. Friendly greeting on arriving at restaurant, given our choice of type of table and asked for a booth. Seated immediately and greeted by wait staff quickly. Ordered beverage and received our appetizer and beverage immediately. Ordered Entrée. Advised by waitress that entrée should be ready shortly but took a little longer then I thought it should have since restaurant wasn't that busy. When it arrived food was delicious and worth the wait. Waitress was very attentive and apologized for the delay in getting our entrée. Overall a very enjoyable dinner.

    I'm not going to recommend this brunch for vegans, however I am going to recommend this brunch for everyone else. This is a lovely restaurant which you love immediately because you feel as though you are dining in some romantic stone building in Italy...or somewhere in Europe. Based on my traveling experience, I was thinking Italy, but it could be many other places...nonetheless, I was no longer in Denver on the tail end of my weekend. This is the type of restaurant that inspires you to do the things you do on vacation, enjoy one more glass of wine (or mimosa). The brunch buffet provides so many delicious options, I would go over my word limit if I attempted to list it all. Delicious experience with fantastic service sums it up.

    My wife and I go to Yaya's for all our special occasions including birthdays and anniversaries. So we decided to share our favorite place with some friends, one of whom had a recent birthday. In the past, when I inform them of a special event they are great about recognizing the event with a dessert or a nice hand written card. This time the server didn't know/do any of that. The food was good as always, but my we felt their timing was off as well. It took a long time for my friends 1st drinks and our salads, so my wife didn't have time to finish hers before the meal came. It wasn't as good as we have come to expect from "our place". We'll be back again and hopefully it goes better next time so I can give the 5 stars they normally deserve.

    Whether it's a special occasion or happy hour, there's no better place south of Hampden along the I-25 corridor than YaYa's for its outstanding menu and atmosphere. Part of what makes each visit a great experience is the staff are true professionals. They know when to engage and when to be invisible; which requires savvy, sophistication and intuition. They recognize their job is to facilitate a memorable evening without their being the most memorable part of the evening (good or bad). Unfortunately, this past weekend, our waiter was a bit like a yellow jacket at a picnic. It was as if he still had his training wheels on. With that said, he was well-intentioned, and I can appreciate that he was trying very hard. Everything else was divine.

    While our entrees were delicious, my Greek salad was waaaay overdressed, and it was missing the cucumbers. My iced tea was never refilled. We preferred the soufflé, but it wasn't a "real" soufflé... It was a brownie cooked in a soufflé ramiken. Soufflés rise, and this was literally just flat and cake-like. My mom ordered a cappuccino which didn't come out until she got the bill and it was like warm. We are pretty sure our waiter just forgot about it, but he blamed whomever was making the drinks and said the cappuccino machine had malfunctioned and they took that long to get it fixed... (Yeah ok). I have been to Yaya's for lunch, and my experience was better. For what we paid for dinner, it would have been nice to have better service.
