European
There is something about YaYas that is both sophisticated and whimsical. The atmosphere and menu are certainly sophisticated. Mosaic tile floors, stone columns and fabric-covered wall panels are complemented by heavy beamed ceilings, hand-blown chandeliers, and curvy wrought-iron railings. The eclectic menu is inspired by a combination of American, French, Italian and Greek cuisines. Mediterranean Euro bites share the menu with oak fired pizzas baked in our own brick oven; rich, creative pastas and an array of the freshest seafood dishes and innovative meat entrees.
Perhaps the whimsical is the name itself and what it conjures up. Yia Yia means grandmother. The restaurant is actually named after co-founder Paul Khoury’s own grandmother, who as the wife of an ambassador, traveled in many European countries gathering ideas for her own special recipes.

Due to social distancing, patio seating does have limited availability, thank you for your patience and understanding!

The meal and service were as always great. In this pandemic, there was not enough social distancing. While that is not good for the restaurant, it is important until we get vaccines available. Please try to social distance more.

YaYas is definitely our go to place for a great meal. During covid we have gotten to go at least once a week. The Salmon Salad is my fav and my go to. I have to say getting salmon to go is kind of a scary thing BUT these guy have done such a fantastic job of to go during covid. i wanted to thank the management when we were there on friday but there were pretty busy. love the break and Baba Ganoush for a starter is such a treat. We also had the Calamari and the Gnocchi and you have to have the philo brownie for desert. Ya Yas is the go to place also for drinks with the girls and sitting on the patio. Thanks for a great night.

Working my way through this fine menu every week! From seafood to chops to pasta, this is fine dining. Walter is the consumate server with knowledge of all things on the menu. He also has a very good understanding of the wine list which is pretty substantial.

After calling the restaurant to reserve a table outdoors, I was told outdoor dining was first come first served, which was understandable. Decided to go ahead and make reservations on Open Table, get there early and request outdoor dining, as instructed. Once our group arrived and we asked to be seated outside, we were told all of the tables had been reserved for the night. Confused, I explained what I had been told, but the hostess was pretty insistent that they do take outdoor reservations. We settled for a table in an indoor corner of the restaurant, and moved on. Not that big of a deal, since we were all just happy to get out of our houses for the night!

Our server was comically bad. Wore his mask below his nose, walked away multi times while someone was trying to order from him, literally rolled his eyes when one of my friends was asking for his opinion on which entree to order. He had to be drunk. No way was he sober.

All in all, the food and drinks were delicious, ambience was fine (although we would have preferred to be outside), but the hostess staff needs to get on the same page and the service I will chalk up to just a bad night. Not a deal breaker, but it was a bummer.

Ya Ya’s is one of my favorite places in JoCo., but this time was extremely disappointing. We arrived on time for our reservation and didn’t get seated for over a half hour. The bar was packed so we had to wait out front. We like to eat on their patio and have been there a number of times this summer. This night it was jammed with no social distancing. Our waiter was overwhelmed with tables and he was not able to provide the level of service you would expect. Once our food came two meals were not properly cooked. Salmon was extremely undercooked, even after being returned to be recooked. It seemed that no one was in charge and there was insufficient staffing. I hope they get these issues addressed.

The patio at YaYa's is always so beautiful. We enjoy how comfortable it is too. There was live music and the food was perfect. I had the pear salad with added chicken. Delicious! The server recommended a perfect glass of wine and I was set.

Sat on the Patio, good social distancing. All servers wore masks. Food was brought
out promptly and was hot. However, we went for happy hour, and there were specials. A happy hour menu would have been nice.

Server kept pulling her mask below her chin, especially when close to customers and taking orders. Drinks menu was on an iPad that was not cleaned or sanitized between customers. It came to our table with crumbs on it and server took it directly from our table to another table. Service was extremely slow but expected for Covid times. One server for an entire patio of 12+ tables.

We had brunch for my birthday! The menu was really good. They had breakfast, sandwiches, salads, pasta. It was something for everyone, but limited (as it should be). I was concerned because we were fans of the buffet. I shouldn't have worried as I stated there was something for everyone's appetite.

For lunchtime, the prices were very expensive, which would be okay if the food was seasoned, which it wasn’t. Everything tasted very fresh but very bland. Enjoyed the patio though. And our server was very personable.

Shrimp Risotto was delicious! Service was great at first half but slowed down second half. Started getting busier? Dessert was the triple Creme Brûlée. It was disappointing in that the vanilla one was great but the chocolate and fruit ones were not good at all. Their texture was like curdled milk and flavors not good. Needs some work on those two.

We made a reservation for outdoor seating, but needless to say, we had to wait 15 minutes to be seated so they could set up more outside tables in the grass off to the side because they had already filled the outdoor seating area. The waitress was young and unexperienced, sweet, but didn't know much about the wine or the menu. Bread came out late and was cold , dinner entrees were good.

YaYa’s is great! The food is always wonderful and so is the service. The bar staff are friendly too. I’ve only been here a couple of times since moving to the area but I will keep coming back because they are friendly, welcoming and clearly appreciate their patrons. Bonus - The ambiance is spot on every time.

Great food served on the open air patio. One of the nicest patios for outside dining around as well shaded. Recommend crab cakes and Bill’s Salad. Our server, Brad was very nice and informative, regarding menu items resulting in a lovely lunch experience.

We had a great experience and Yaya's is consistently excellent. Outstanding food and service, always. I should have asked for a different table, we were too close to the patio door and it was very busy.
