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.

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.

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.

We had a group of 6 to celebrate 2 friends' birthdays. I requested a round table which we did not get. We ordered the baba ganoush with our bread and waited a long time for it. The waiter only bought one loaf of bread for 2 plates of baba ganoush (which is delicious by the way). We asked for more bread 3 different times and were told it was in the oven. We saw other tables getting bread. Then, itt took way too long for the waiter to take our food order and we had no bread with which to eat our baba ganoush while we waited. After finally getting our entrees, he brought the bread. When the waiter brought the dessert tray, we mentioned the birthdays we were celebrating, and were told they'd each get a free dessert. The waiter said sure, it would be 'on him', making it seem like he'd have to pay for them. Seriously? That was uncomfortable for us. We were all frustrated by the service we received and talked about never choosing Ya Ya's for a group celebration again when there are plenty of other quality restaurants in the Chesterfield area.

We took friends who had never been- because we love this place- but the service was awful this time around- they ran out of the beer I ordered- we had to ask for bread at the end of our meal - the souffle i ordered with my meal came a full 1/2 hour after we were done eating- i felt the manager should have done something- didn’t like to complain but was very unhappy - we’ll see how long before we go back

The "french toast special" was simple: cinnamon and cream cheese drizzle. YUM. Maybe,
there weren't enough people selecting the eggs benedict, because the tray was more than half full, and mine was cool/cold. BUT, I like the idea of having the gentleman pour the sauce over
the bene. That way you can ask for more, and the bene is wallowing in sauce beforehand.
Everything was very good or outstanding, as usual. We also like that the desserts are cut into
very small portions. That way, I can have five or six desserts.

The food was OK. Not great. Salmon was first overcooked and then almost raw. It was taken away and no one asked what they could do to rectify situation. Just told sorry you didn't want the salmon. We never had our water refilled even though we asked. We had to ask for bread. Think you need to hire some bus people to help out the wait staff. Best part of the meal were the wonderful Manhattan's and the bread.

We had a great time. The service and the food was excellent. And they have a nice wine selection that they do not overprice where most restaurants double the price right out of the gate.
We asked ourselves why we don't go here more often and decided we are going to change that and use this as our go-to restaurant going forward.

Unfortunately our food was not up to par for this restaurant, and that was the case for all six in our party. The service was very good, but something was definitively off in the kitchen. Hoping it was just an off night.

Amazing food, service exceptional. However, the floor under our table was not cleared from lunch rush: food and fallen spoon still on the floor. For a fine dining experience it was cutting short the beauty of the restaurant. My thoughts: YaYa take the time to clean up after lunch rush, details are important and a clean environment is attractive.
