We didn’t realize it was brunch only on Sundays, but it was an excellent brunch!

We love YaYa’s! The food is terrific and the service amazing! My favorite dish is the scallops and the phyllo wrapped brownie is amazing!

We eat here often. Have never had a problem since they opened. I am really puzzled when people say that the food and service are bad. Even on a bad day they are just fine, and I'd be critical if it was deserved.

As usual it was very nice and great service. It is the first time we had pizza and was very good but would prefer a little crisper crust and more topping, short on mushrooms especially. I will ask next time.

The service was amazing. The staff was attentive and engaging. The menu had numerous options and something for every type of eater. It is pricey, so it’s not something that could be done often for the average family, but it’s definitely worth trying at least once.

Excellent food was enjoyed by our friends’ group. “Delicious!”, “Can’t believe I’ve never been here before!”, and “This will be a great place for our anniversary dinner!” were just a few if the complimentary comments shared.

We went for my fiance's birthday after a co-worker recommended it. We were very happy with the choice. The baba ganoush was the best I've ever had! (the first time I've ever had it , ha, ha) spinach artichoke dip, tenderloin, scallops, all delicious. And the chocolate souffle for dessert! wonderful! Our server, Matt, was great too. He described the different dishes and made suggestions and was pleasant and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on November 27, 2017

We were assigned a waiter who also was responsible for the large party in the banquet room adjoining the restaurant dining area. We could see him taking this huge order as we waited and waited and waited. We finally asked if someone else could take our order and the other server willingly did so. However our order took forever to place and forever to come out of the kitchen. If the food wasn't so outstanding it would have been a bust. Next time the manager has to say no to the table rotation and not assign a server to both the dining room and the banquet room at the same time. This was a leadership issue, not a server issue.

We were a larger party with someone who needed gf/df options. I called ahead & they said they could accommodate us. And they really did! Laura was our waitress and suggested options, checked with the chef multiple times & never made our guest feel like a burden. It was a fabulous night & great food! Steak & scallops, crab cakes, hangar steak & salmon were some table faves, also the bread pudding for dessert. We will be back!

My wife and I joined their Thanksgiving buffet today. We have been going to Yia Yias for years and have always enjoyed their preparations. This year , everything was even better. The food offerings were uniformly excellent and our server did a wonderful job keeping the table clear and the water glasses filled. A very enjoyable Thanksgiving Day.

This visit at YaYa's was for their Thanksgiving Buffet. The food was wonderful with a lot to choose from salads, to side dishes to Turkey and more. Maybe the best mashed potatoes I have ever had! Also love their idea of having desserts in small servings so you can sample more than one item. Service was wonderful as we had our favorite server Charles. He always makes things special for us but all of the staff are professional and welcoming. We always have a great experience here no matter what the occasion.

A little pricey if you indulge but a delicious meal and wine can be yours without breaking the bank. We had wonderful service and thoroughly enjoyed the wide range of choices. Reservation made via Open Table ensured we had a table waiting for us without any wait, although the place was very busy. We'll be back.

Consistently good food that is fresh and professionally prepared. The right number of selections across several menu categories with a few unique, fresh caught fish selections every time we visit. YaYa’s is always the first place we choose when we are looking for high quality food in a clean, friendly atmosphere.
