Birthday celebration for co-worker. Just happened to be Restaurant Week 2022. Everything was amazing! Drinks, apps, main courses and dessert. No complaints. Best service ever by our waiter Tim!! Excellent in all aspects. Will definitely return.
Thanks Tim for making it a great evening.

Ya Ya's is always a great dining experience. Really enjoyed the mushroom agnolotti. You can tell this is a very well run restaurant.

Dropped by for lunch during Restaurant Week, had eaten there in the past but just not the first place we think of...my husband had never eaten there. Greeted and sat down quickly, the server came and gave us water...then he was gone. For well over 15 minutes...crickets. While every other server was walking by, tables sat after us ordering and even getting bread etc...we were just waiting. My husband asked another server if he could find ours, he did and the server came over. My husband nicely said, we weren't sure if you remembered us...the server from that point was pretty short with us, and we only saw him 1 more time when we paid. The runner brought the food, another server filled our water carafe...Food was great (recommend Bills chicken salad - Yummy), love the atmosphere...and surprised by the level of service. It may have just been the wrong time for the server to be given more tables....

Good food, good service, good accommodations. YaYas is the kind of restaurant you enjoy coming back to for its consistency and catering to the customer.
Dining, libations, and pleasant conversations always bring us back for more.
Tasty varieties for vegan pescatarians, vegetarian, and carnivores! All served with the classic sour tough bread and baba!

The side of the restaurant where they seated us felt like a banquet hall. The lights were very bright and it just felt kind of cheap. Would have preferred the main area. The food was really good, I had scallops and my husband had the filet. We also shared the butter cake. The service was good. Our server was very friendly it just took awhile for someone to acknowledge us once we sat down.

We decided to do this for restaurant week and absolutely loved it!!! Our server was amazing, the food tasted AMAZING!!!! The only downside was my daughters burger was a little red. I told the server, and he had no problem taking it back to be cooked up until done. I felt so bad about asking since they were so swamped and apologized to him. He was just amazing to say the least!

Use to be a big fan!

Upon arriving, there were 5 staff members standing at the check-in desk chatting with one another and not one of them made eye contact with us or acknowledged us. I’ve never experienced that at YiaYia’s before. My husband and I even glanced at each other, and he asked if we were invisible. For a split second, I thought about walking out. I had to say, “hello” loudly to get someone to respond to me.

Once seated, it took about 10 minutes to even get water. Turns out the person who was our server had passed us multiple times (very odd she didn’t once acknowledge us, even to say I’ll be right with you). When she finally came over, we asked for water and a beer and ordered an appetizer. We got our water and our appetizer arrived long before our beer. We had witnessed our server just standing around. We asked the person who brought our app to check on our beer, and we saw him check with our server. She immediately came with our beer and said “sorry I had to help with a banquet”. (Wow) She definitely needed some training and was not at all wanting to service her customers. We almost just paid for our app and beer and went elsewhere, but it was late so we decided to stay. Ordered our meal, food fantastic as always! You used to be really really great and we loved the service. What happened (and do NOT say “COVID”). I see all the signs about appreciating and respecting those that ”showed up”. How about showing the same appreciation and respect to those of us those CHOSE your restaurant. Next time we will choose differently.

First day of restaurant week at 11:30 and they ran out of soup, and gave us some to take home. Strange. Salads were excellent. Server was wonderful!

On the edge of annoyance by the wait in a tiny space when we had a reservation. Service was not amazing but we assume the girl was new. Wine tasting not properly handled. Recommended wine choice was not great. Barely any fish on my very overdone trout skin. Dessert was ho-hum. Won’t return for a long while.

Ya Yas is one of our favorites and we are there often. Maybe it’s because it was NYE, but the food was terrible. Steak way over cooked. Salmon burned on the bottom to the point we had to scrape the meat off the burned part. We didn’t say anything because we generally have a very good experience ….maybe I should have. It wasn’t an overcrowded kind of night. Perhaps the regular chef wasn’t on duty. That said we will keep coming back. It’s been a favorite for years!

Visited Ya Yas last week and again this week. Was disappointed both times. Week one my hamburger was dry and served on a hard bun. This week my meal was just OK. For dessert I ordered the berries with whipped cream, expecting a bowl of berries with a dollop of whipped cream. Instead, I literally got a bowl full of whipped cream with a few blueberries and a few strawberries on top. As for service, not too long into eating our meal, when we had the majority of our food in front of us, our server came by with the dessert menu and wanted our order. Nothing required advanced order. Overall, I have had two disappointing experiences in a row.

Excellent food and service as usual at YaYas. The Crabcargot is a delicious appetizer and definitely worth trying! Shrimp La Plancha was also quite good but just a tad overdone.

Warm and friendly atmosphere continues to be the spirit. Even though they were packed with party goes as well as guests like us, service was quick but not rushed. Food quality and taste was excellent and the bread and ‘baba’ are complimentary a tasty hallmark of every visit. We are long frequent diners and appreciate the consistency!

Wow! From the time the host greeted us immediately during this super busy Friday night our experience was excellent! Mark, our server, was attentive and offered great drink and food suggestions. Rob, the manager, brought our awesome dinner and engaged us in great conversation. Our dining experience at Ya Yas was exactly what I wish we received every time we dined at a restaurant. Staff makes all the difference. The host, server, and manager all knew customer service and it showed in the quality of food, drink and service! Thank you Ya Yas! We will be in again soon.
