    My boyfriend and I went to YOT for Valentines Day and loved it! The atmosphere was great and the food was even better. We got the pepperoni flatbread, Korean wings, and cinnamon bun pudding to share and they were all amazing.

    A few take aways from date night here. 1) It took about 20 minutes before anyone came to our table for the drink order. When someone finally did , we were told a couple appetizers were no longer available. 2) The food quality was so-so. There are plenty of other restaurants where you can spend about $20 per entree and feel like you get value. This place isn’t one of those. 3) Ambience is extremely good. Sitting by the water , listening to live music. If I was to do this evening again, I would go sit at the high tops closest to the water, order drinks from the bar , listen to music , and not order any food. I probably won’t go back.

    One thing was odd.. one of the meals came with a side of some kind of mushrooms my husband asked if he could change it for the asparagus. They said no, you would have to buy a side of asparagus. But when we looked at the menu the asparagus was cheaper than the mushroom side they offered. So essentially they brought the meal without a side and brought a side plate of asparagus. It’s not about the money it’s the principal. If you’re allergic to mushrooms don’t order the scallops. And to boot the scallops were overcooked!

    Just left a beautiful Sunday brunch at Yot Bar. The weather made it perfect. We sat on the patio with a beautiful view of the water. There was a live band playing some great music, truly created a wonderful and relaxing experience. Our server was extremely attentive and friendly. There wasn’t a moment our cups ran dry. We both ordered the chicken and waffles. The flavors of the meal paired very well together. Perfect portion. The chicken are little nuggets, just in case you were wondering. We had a minor hiccup with the chicken being overcooked(burned) but our server was able to get it situated. Overall the view, the food, the weather, and the service created the perfect way to start a new week. We will definitely be back.

    I have been to Yot no less than 50 times over the last few years and wow, things are not so good anymore. We were seated at our table and waited at least 10 minutes for our server to greet us. When she finally came to the table to take our drink order, she had a full tray of another table's drinks in her hand and took our drink order on her mobile ordering device with one hand - which took talent - however she was so focused on not dropping the tray of drinks, that she took our order incorrectly. Our drinks arrived and they were all wrong (dirty martini on the rocks with blue cheese olives arrived up, no dirt and regular olives while the up martini with regular olives arrived extra dirty on the rocks with no olives). We finally got that straightened out and ordered our apps - guac and chips and brussel sprouts. The chips with the guac were so ridiculously over salted and spicy that no one at the table ate them. The brussel sprouts had some type of sticky, sweet gelatin boba-like balls in them and they were awful. For an entree, I ordered the Silver Lining Salad (which is my go to) and it was a giant bowl of greens, a few pieces of cold grilled chicken, some stale pecans and a sprinkle of cheese. On top of all of this, the music was pumping so loud, it rallied a South Beach club - not at all conducive to any type of conversation. Really disappointed in the last few visits here.

    The service and view makes this place worth the trip. The food is good, depending on what you order. I wasn’t impressed with my choice of steak and salad. It was a bland for my taste. The potatoes were excellent however. Drinks were also excellent. The place gets crowded, but the servers are attentive.

    First time eating here, won’t be the last! We came for brunch on New Year’s Day. Even though we had originally booked for inside, they were able to seat us outside per our request on arrival. Ambience is good. There was music (not live) but it was not too loud so we appreciated that. The view of the marina is great. The food was delicious—we ordered the Wasabi shrimp Caesar salad, the smoked salmon, and sides of crispy hash browns. Everything was on point! Couldn’t finish our hash browns—one order would’ve been enough for both of us. Sabrina was our server and she was wonderful—attentive, prompt, friendly, definitely on top of her game. We will be back soon! PS I’ve seen other reviews say it’s valet only, but we were able to self-park right outside the restaurant. Maybe it’s valet during busier hours? Also, it’s a bit off the beaten path but if you follow the signs you should have no problem.
