Wow I don’t even know where to begin! I can’t believe I have never been to this restaurant!! The staff was so unbelievably friendly they actually called my husband and I by our first name the entire time we were there and the food was awesome!! The service was awesome and the owner came out to our table and introduced herself and thanked us for our service!! We will definitely be going back regularly!!!!!!!!!!

Everything was delicious and for the quality, very reasonably priced!

During the day it's a salon, and in the afternoon/evening you can wine and dine!

We are foodies and enjoy cigars, this place totally delights our palates and our hearts. Great food has that special ingredient of love that is difficult to replicate. Everything here was fantastic.. we kept asking "are we really in Crystal River?!" We honestly couldn't believe it.

We drove past so many times, each time unsure what it was until I saw them on open table. Then went there thinking they only had sushi(for some reason). We had no idea the foodie experience we were about to have...

We ended up having the guava shrimp and grits, steak, crab cakes and caprese salad. Then we ended the night with key lime CAKE. They were all delicious and to perfection! Seriously get them all! Follow their suggestions in the wine/ beer pairings too.

It's the perfect balance of chill vibes and great food. Right across from a small airport/hangar.
And if you enjoy cigars, they have a "Cigarden". It's a cigar patio in the back along with their little garden where they grow their own fresh veggies and herbs! How cool is that?! Oh and to add to it they also have the hottest peppers in the world growing in the back! (Just don't touch em. You’ve been warned)

We can't wait to come back!

Food was great, but the service and attentiveness provided by Jerry was outstanding. The fresh crab rolls were by far my favorite. Highly recommend!

Exceptional! We took our daughter and son-in-law. They are sort of 'foodies.' So, since we had not been there ourselves, we were concerned that everything would be acceptable for them. We had some wonderful cocktails, great appetizers and wonderful dinners. It is a GREAT place and our server Jerry was wonderful. The food was a little slow coming out of the kitchen but we had to remind ourselves that everything is made fresh. With cocktails and appetizers and great conversation you won't mind the wait. Just don't go there hoping to have your food in 10 minutes. It is well worth the delay. We will be back!!

YAI YAI Style Lounge is a true gem! We dined indoors in the lounge. They have a back lounge which is outdoors with live music and an amazing ambiance! The menu is dine around the world with light tapas, heavy tapas, flatbreads and sushi. We had the SoHo Cap (which is a portabella mushroom cap stuffed with parmesan, feta, and organic habanero peppers) -- just a little spice and simply breath-taking! We also had the Portabella Flatbread (bellas, feta, parmesan, fresh mozzarella, habanero, balsamic glaze and olive oil herb on an artisan flatbread) -- simply delicious! We also had Mango Salmon (grilled salmon topped with this addictive mango salsa) served with black beans and rice -- this is so good it will bring tears to your eyes! We will be back again soon and often. This is our new go-to place! Great vibe - great friendly people - great service! Love this place!

Back for a second time -- and it just keeps getting better. This time we dined on what they call the Back Lounge -- which is an outdoor deck with seating and a live DJ. The music was SO cool -- reminded us of many high-end restaurants we've been to in New York, Los Angles, Chicago and other metropolitan markets. We had sushi -- the ingredients were SO FRESH - and they use the VERY HIGHEST QUALITY organic ingredients - and you can certainly taste the difference! We also enjoyed a bottle of our new favorite wine - Luna Crescente! I looked up our $60 bottle of wine on my Vivino app -- it was $375! We're BLOWN AWAY! We met the owners and the sushi chef as well! They were all so nice and welcoming! This is definitely the coolest place with the best food, wine, craft beer and cocktails anywhere in Central Florida! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
