    Yes Bistro was a complete surprise . From the decor to the food to the service; my wife and I had a romantic time with rich flavored food. I recommend Yes Bistro as a great place for Date Night.

    First time here. We met another couple after work so we were there at 5:30. We were immediately seated & the Server came by right away. We were sitting chatting and the Server came over and asked if we would like a drink. No, not yet. He came back 5 minutes later and asked again. We felt pressured so we just hurried and ordered wine/beer. He delivered our drinks within 2 min. He at that time asked if we would like to order. No, not yet. 5 min later he came by again. No not yet. We informed him we have been busy chatting & haven't looked. He came by again in 5 min and we were very frustrated and told him to come back in 15 minutes, he came back in 5!!! Again so rushed that we quickly ordered while he stood over us.

    Came for dinner with the family at the last minute. It was a Monday night and therefore not busy when we arrived. The atmosphere was relaxed, quiet but not dull. The staff were friendly and our waitress was attentive. The food was on point this time around. The last time we came, my husband and I found it to be somewhat disappointing. Food didn't seem as fresh and mostly over-seasoned or overdone. This night however, we found everything to be fresh and properly prepared and seasoned just right except for the slaw that accompanied his ribs. I had the filet mignon special and although I specified medium, it arrived more on the medium well but still tasty and not dry.Overall, food and service were satisfactory! Will be back!

    The service is above par, the food is tasty and the menu is interesting. We love this place and have enjoyed dining there several times. In a town with lots to choose from, this is one of our top ten picks!

    Yes was very accommodating as we had to keep changing our reservation time. The service staff seemed inexperienced but super nice. They were out of a lot of items on the menu. The grilled seafood salad was great. Pizza wasn't a fav....I'm more of a sweet/savory bbq sauce and theirs was interesting. The orange cake with chocolate ganache was tasty. Decent all the way around. Nice ambiance....seems like it would be good for a group birthday party.

  • Quite Pleased
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/18/2014
    First time dining here, and as this was a business lunch, a reservation was made through OpenTable. Upon arrival, we were seated at the only white-clothed table in the area, so reservations are treated somewhat differently than walk-ins. The decor is modern with warm, neutral tones which I liked very much. We had several different servers throughout the meal, much like you'd expect at a high-end restaurant. All courses came artfully displayed, and the food was prepared with fresh ingredients. Tasty, but not over the top. I would recommend this restaurant for business lunches/dinners, date-night, or other special occasions. Refreshing to find a place meant for adults that's not a bar.

    This place has been the answer to fervent hopes of the foodies among us on the east side. Have been coming here since the beginning, which wasn't too long ago, and have loved everything I've ordered. They have been responsive to my requests for more (high quality) California chardonnays by the glass and have a reasonable corkage fee when I still want to bring my own wine or champagne. This is important to me and I bring everyone I possibly can to experience the creative menu and fun environment. If you haven't already, I recommend trying Yes Bistro for your next fun meal out! And SOOOOOOOOO happy to finally see Yes Bistro on OpenTable.com!!!!

    Our waitress was OK. She wasn't very attentive and she left our appetizers under the heat lamp for awhile. The food was okay. I got the general chicken and fried rice and my boyfriend got a pasta. We also got two alcoholic drinks and the whole meal costed us over $80. Not worth it.

    The big negative is that I don't think this establishment is ready for Open Table. I made a reservation online yet when I showed up, the girl at the front didn't seem to know what Open Table was and said they did not have a reservation for my party. As the place was almost empty, this didn't cause a problem.

    We reserved a table for lunch at Yes Bistro to say good-bye to one of our co-workers. The staff was outstanding, the food was spectacular! We really felt special with a cloth tablecloth that other tables without Open Table Reservations did not have. Fantastic experience all the way around. Thank you Yes Bistro for making our lunch special!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/31/2014
    My husband and I like to dine here on our date nights. I ordered the Rib eye, and my husband had the Skirt Steak. Both cooked perfectly to our liking. The fries that come with the skirt steak are amazing. It's like a sweet Asian potato. The Caesar salad was delicious, and our appetizer, the ravioli was better than any other I've tasted. From prior experience, the duck flatbread has fantastic flavoring!

    We went on Mother's Day after I had a mostly good experience with a service club luncheon there - slow service blamed on this being their first time serving such a large group. It was one of the few places with wide open reservations. Perhaps a clue? The food was good. The problem was the forty minutes that elapsed between taking our order and receiving it. The place was pretty empty - maybe 3-4 tables inside and 4 outside full. We were offered no discount, nothing to tide us over while we waited - not even bread for the table. If they're going to try and put this kind of restaurant in East Anchorage, they need to up their service. It's not worth the drive. Suite 100 is better, closer, and cheaper.

    Food was not fresh. We ordered lamb shank and the dish was nothing like the description. Too salty. We ordered crab claws off the Asian menu...disaster. Worst bday dinner ever.

    We drove by this restaurant several times before trying their menu. It was fairly slow and several employees were standing around chatting with each other. It took several minutes before we were greeted and taken to be seated. We were surprised with the limited menu. We were offered bread, which actually arrived after our meal was served. The food was better than average, so we will definately give it another chance to overcome the poor service we received.
