We have eaten here several times and this had to be one of the worst experiences. We had made reservations well in advance but had to wait upon arrival for them to set up a table right next to the entrance. Our waitress was condescending and rude. At one point she took my husband’s seat when he had gone to the restroom and he had to wait for her to move when he came back. She accused my friend of having a midlife crisis. She brought our tickets out wrong and blamed us for the error. When we had paid she literally walked up to our table and said “get out. I want to go home and we’re closing.” There were a lot of other tables with diners still. We had to ask for our glasses to be refilled continuously and she acted out out every single time. The other issue is the restaurant was out of all steak except for ribeye so the menu was slim. Love this restaurant but the waitress definitely ruined the evening.

We travel from Hays Ks to Salina many times just to go to YaYa's we found it 2 years ago and, our experiences there have been remarkable. However, we were very disappointed on New Year's Eve, we made our reservation a week in advance just to make brining in the year special but were very disappointed yesterday. What happened to the waiters and servers from the past? Our waitress made us feel unwelcome almost, kept wanting to take our plates even while we were still eating from them, look when we order wine and appetizers with the flat iron steak, we intend on enjoying every bite to savor the taste and the atmosphere while enjoying conversation, but when you have to hold your breath seeing the waitress coming your way well... Then to top it off before we had finished our meal asks us if she can bring our check to the table. Very unsatisfied to say the least.

We celebrated our anniversary. The waitress told us the desert would be free but apparently we ordered the wrong one because the one we chose was half price. But we did have a good experience.

I was expecting some really good food. We were celebrating Christmas and the food was a big disappointment for the money. My husband got the salmon he said it was pretty good except for the noodles served underneath it. I ordered the penne carbonara and it was terrible. Was served with a raw egg yolk on top. No flavor at all. Asked for salt and pepper and the salt shaker was empty. Had to ask for another one. It just didn’t feel special at all. Will not be going back there.

Great menu plus outstanding service. Showed up for Happy Hour before a film viewing at the Salina Arts Cinema. Eclectic, diverse menu with a wide variety of choices.
Table service was outstanding = prompt and attentive but not not intrusive.
Felt the $ value was dood and the taste of each item indicated pride in prep and taste.
Will be back again and again.

Absolutely excellent! Our new favorite restaurant. I had the Scottish Salmon. I have had Salmon all around the country and this was by far the best I have ever had. The wait staff was professional and friendly. If I could I would set up a standing reservation every Saturday night. Anyone who finds out about YAYAS and doesn't go is cheating themselves!

The waiter had an off night, so we did too. Very disappointing.
Table not clean. Waiter slow to come. We ordered an appetizer to share, 2 entree salads, and one $15 glass of wine. Waiter returned and set an empty wine glass on the table. We waited a long while. Then another waiter brought our entrees! Still no wine, no appetizer. The new waiter was surprised to hear about the wine and appetizer.
Our first waiter finally returned and put the appetizer order into the kitchen, and brought the wine.The Greek salad (large) was meager and about the same amount of salad as the half salad with Salmon. The bruschetta and wine were great. Our bill was $50. We went to Baum's for ice cream.

Yaya's is a refreshing new restaurant in rejuvenated Salina downtown. It is a welcome site to Salina's restaurants. We enjoyed a good beverage selection as well as inviting chef's choice menu items. The server was excellent and catered to all of our dining needs. You will find this to be a memorable dining experience!
