Went on a Saturday evening and it was definitely crowded even at an early 6:15 reservation. Less noisy in the back section. Had a great waitress...Lauren. Food was very good although the vegetables were cold. Wine pour is very good. It is always a nice place for a good meal.
Great food, atmosphere and well trained service staff provides a pleasant evening out. But seems too high in price for the value rendered.
Very busy, vibrant. Service was outstanding. Need more vegetarian entrees. Only reason we are not a frequent patron.
Great from start to Finnish . Loved the service , atmosphere and food . Had the free range chicken sandwich... what a creation
We have always had a great meal at ya ya's. The staff treated us very well. Thanks
The service was attentive, the food was passable, but my take away from this reservation was that restaurants must block the least desirable tables for those who make reservations via OpenTable. This was the third consecutive time we've had and undesirable table using the service with this table being in a room that felt like a large closet which in no way reflected the ambiance of the restaurant. Be aware that you will probably need to request better seating at the restaurant when booking through OpenTable unless you want to be near the kitchen, service well or in a broom closet.
We went there for Valentine's Day and had a great time. Babysitter nights are at a premium so you can't waste a night at a bad restaurant. This place was great! The variety was excellent and our waiter was experienced and knew the menu well. I had a great steak scallops and Manhattan and would definitely go back again.
We were seated immediately upon arriving, waitress was very
Prompt in greeting us, she was very attentive and made sure everything we needed was delivered quickly. Each course came out quickly and was very good, definitely going back.
Our server and the restaurant manager checked on us several times but without being overbearing. Food was amazing and staff was very friendly and welcoming.
Excellent food be it steak, chicken, seafood, pasta, pizza, et al. at a reasonable price!
We really enjoy Yaya's! We love the ambience, everyone is so friendly and the food is excellent! We will definitely be back!
Great brunch buffet on Sundays. A good assortment of breakfast and lunch choices, as well as desserts.
Nice brunch. Great selection of salads entrees and deserts
Food was excellent. Unfortunately, I feel the tables are too close to other tables and we did have a noisy table next to us. That was a big group and it seemed somewhat disconcerting to us. It was difficult to carry on a conversation. Maybe I'm just old and cranky because it seems like a lot of restaurants are configured like this with hard ceilings and floors. I saw noise abatement panels, but it was still noisy. We were there are a Saturday so I discount the situation too. A week night would probably have been vastly better with fewer people. They were running at capacity. Staff was quite excellent and attentive. Wait times were virtually non-existent and service was prompt and efficient. The only miscue was a green salad was provided instead of the Caesar I had requested, but perhaps she couldn't hear me over the noise. What I got was still exquisite and there was really no reason to complain. I would still come back - just on a different night.
My wife and I had a 7:15p reservation and we were seated almost immediately even though the restaurant was very busy. Our waiter, Fernando, was very good and made great recommendations. My wife and I both had fish, she had trout and I had the special, both were excellent. The restaurant has been there a long time, and we have visited it many times, but it keeps up its appearance and food choices.
