When we Arrived for 6:30 reservation restaurant was nearly empty. Hostess joked that our service would be outstanding. Well that couldn’t have been further from the truth. After 45 minutes we asked the waitress about our salads. She went back to the kitchen and brought them out immediately. Lettuce was warm and croutons were soggy, so they’d obviously been sitting a long time. Less than a minute later main courses came out which were sent back since the salads just arrived. I confronted the waitress that the salads had been obviously sitting because she wasn’t paying attention. She argued with me and made excuses. When we finished the salads and asked for the mains they were no longer hot. Really inexcusable service failure. I asked for the manager and explained the whole story. He commiserated but made no offer of taking the salads off the check or buying a round of drinks. A most disappointing experience for an expensive dinner.

We went last night with friends. We orden watermelon mojitos and they had not alcohol at all.. they were very watery.
The food was ok (nothing special), the mahi was dry and the lobster roll was no good. The only good food were the fries haha. Very noisy place and the service was informal.
Won’t be back 👎🏼👎🏼

Sunday Funday! What a fantastic place! A hidden gem! Our first time and we will definitely be back! Our waitress, Kimberly was so sweet, friendly and attentive. The food was delicious! I loved my chicken and waffles. Even the person delivering the food was so nice- “Enjoy! And let me know if you need anything else.” The ambiance is beautiful! I found my yacht! Hey a girl can dream!
Looking forward to going back! Thank you!!

Overall great place and will definitely come back. I ordered the scallops (dinner option), and the scallops were surprisingly briny and overall equivalent to the local supermarket. The presentation includes bits of bacon - which was very high quality bacon, but served in rather large chunks and often overwhelmed the other flavors.

This was my first time visiting this restaurant, came across on the Yelp app, decided to take my wife here, the min we walked thru the door we were immediately greeted with smiles, I like how spaced out the tables were, it wasn’t so crowded nor loud, ambiance was amazing, we had started with appetizers but one disappointing moment was that my wife had a piece of plastic in her calamari, matter of fact she was chewing it, that was the only default, I like the fact our waitress immediately took care of this discrepancy. but that’s why I gave them a 4 star. Other than that, the entree was spectacular, food was succulent and delicious!

We loved the location and plan to return in the day when we can see all the yachts in the marina. Our server was wonderful. Our only complaint was the kitchen did not give us our salads before the entree.

This was a first time for my friends and myself Ari YOT. We weren’t disappointed in any way. The staff the food and the location were all perfect. The DJ was a great surprise, and played awesome music. The waiter Alejandro was amazing, friendly, and attentive. While leaving we all agreed we would be back multiple times. The food had great flavor, fresh ingredients and shareable portions. Can’t wait to introduce all my friends and family to YOT Kitchen and Bar.

Overall nice ambiance and the food was good, however it’s unfortunate that you cannot order from the lunch menu on the weekend. Also- if you order bottomless you will be lucky to get 2 drinks as the servers deliberately
