One of our favorites - Samantha was very attentive and prompt … she paced our food perfectly from appetizers to end of meal....she didn't rush us; she was friendly and professional; the food was excellent. We'll be back!

This is the go to restaurant in the Denver Tech center. The menu is varied, the wine list is good and the service is good. The food is good but not inspired. Good spot for a business lunch

Very busy for Sunday brunch. Our server was amazing but the restaurant in general seemed to be struggling to keep up with the crowd and keep the buffet stocked.

We had the Filet Mignon and the Lamb Steak. The delicious locally-sourced lamb came with a somewhat light chimichurri sauce and roasted potatoes. The filet mignon melted in our mouths and was truly outstanding with the Chianti-Gorgonzola reduction and mashed potatoes. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. We enjoyed the tablet-based interactive wine menu. We also shared house-made dark chocolate and banana ice cream which was superbly creamy. The only miss was that the entrees came out so quickly that they arrived before the freshly-baked bread we had intended to munch as an appetizer.

Wait staff was very prompt and attentive, but not overwhelming. The appetizers and entrees were incredible with great attention to presentation, seasoning and temperatures. Noise level was a perfect level for ambiance and sane conversation where you didn’t feel like you had to yell to hear one another.

Chicken Caesar :( D+/C-) below-average salad. Tasteless grilled chicken (not blackened as requested), stale croutons, institutional dressing. Lunch service slow and incomplete (necessary secondary requests for both iced tea and dressing on-the-side.

Love their gnocchi and roast chicken but everything on the menu is superb. For some reason service seems more crisp at lunch. Went there for dinner same day and had to move to the bar to get service after being seated on the patio and waiting for 20 mins while being ignored. Moved to the bar and there service was good.

Tuesday Date Night Dinner. We thought the restaurant would be empty, but it was full and lively. I guess word of a great restaurant--especially one that's been around for decades--spreads and fills tables even on a Tuesday night. Our waiter Jake was awesome and attentive, and his assistant Gerardo made us laugh. The wine, food and service were top-notch. The calamari appetizer was fresh and crispy, the nightly seafood special was spectacular (and the chef modified it to our order), and both desserts were incredible. When we couldn't decide which one to share, Jake brought both the pana cotta and the bread pudding (one was on the house). It's been a while since we've been to Ya Ya's before this week, but now we can't wait to come back again. Thank you for making our date night special!

We had a small birthday lunch celebration at Ya-Ya's. Everything was wonderful. Great salads for everyone's taste. I mentioned to our server that it was a birthday. She brought out the most amazing chocolate brownie wrapped in phyllo dough. We all enjoyed.

The hostess was rude, her back was turned to me as I walked in and when I peeked past her to see if someone from my party was there yet, she turned around and snapped at me? I explained I had a reservation and she snapped that "only dinner" reservations could accommodate a reservation... understandable I said, I'll just seat myself. Then the waitress had NO personality and the food was cold my the time it came out. Gees, I'll just find another spot to purchase a bottle of wine and have light apps with my girlfriends....
