Server did ok just nothing special. Seemed to have to many tables. Dishes set empty for long periods, refills were slow, no bread offered or coffee after dinner. No management interaction.
The prices were a bit high relative to the quality of the food. Waiter was OK, but was very slow in bringing our bill. Entertainment was good.
Thank you for your review frank, what did you have for dinner? Please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com
Our party of 4 enjoyed a comfortable booth. The air conditioning was a bit on the cool side, easily fixed with a light sweater. The half price wines allowed us to choose a very nice Italian barbaresco. The appetizer salads were delicious and portioned large enough to share. We all enjoyed a different entree. Standouts were cedar plank salmon and chicken chow chow.
Thanks for the awesome 5 star review!
Our server rushed us through and the restaurant was maybe 10% occupied. Another thing where we come from bread is served as part of a dinner. Not going back for a while if ever.

Food and service were great. Wonderful location, lovely music.
We had 5 in our party, everyone ordered something different, food s for years,
Thanks for the 5 stars Steve!
Restaurant was more than half empty with many servers buzzing around, yet I waited 15 minutes, trying to catch someone’s eye and eventually waving at staff, to no avail, and finally got up and tracked someone down half way across the restaurant to ask to send server to our table for a drink order. Neither she nor the server that finally showed up was pleasant. Fish and shrimp fry was mediocre at best - thick breading, dry and tasteless .

Not the Yabba our family used to enjoy over the years😞
please let us know what we can do to make your next visit worthy of 5 stars
Food was good, but not hot. Surprised, because it’s always been hot before.
Thanks Garbo for your review. Please let us know of any issues while your in the restaurant so we can fix any problems while your still here.
Great indoor table location with view of 5th Avenue activity. Food very good, but overpriced. Service was reasonably quick, but perfunctory. Waiter uninterested.
thanks for your review dan. We have been known as the most affordable restaurant on 5th ave. We offer an early dinging menu that might be more your style. Hope to see you again soon!!!
Thanks for the stars
The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was very good and large portions.
Thanks for the 5 stars!!!
Miguel was terrific ! The shwimps appetizers was delish!
Thanks for the 5 stars mike
Yabba continues to impress. The Rasta Pasta was excellent and the wine list is the best value in Naples (although not quite the bargain they represent on the menu).
Also, have to mention the excellent sax player doing entertainment.
Thanks for the awesome review!
Lively casual spot! Great food and fun atmosphere. Terrific music. Good for families as there is. a lot to see and do. Terrific people watching!
Thanks for the great review
We love Yabba. It is one of our favorites before going to The Naples Players next door. But now that they have live music at night it’s important for those who want a peaceful meal to reserve an outdoor table.
Thanks for the 5 star review! We do have our entertainment schedule posted on our website.
Only disappointment was the stone crab claws. $8.50 each which was not the problem - they just didn't have much meat. Other than that, the steaks were excellent, sweet potato fries crispy and delicious. Yabba's is rated $$ but I'd have to say it's $$$. $90 per person two drinks. Still, I would go back - just not order the crab claws.
Thanks for your review Roy. We do receive our stone crabs daily so that they are of the highest quality. Also they are weighed in house each day. Maybe order the large claws net time they are 3-5 oz with shell weight. Hope to see you again soon
Great dinner! Lots of wonderful menu choices! It was difficult to select just one!
Thanks for the great review!
Great food-especially when taking advantage of the early bird! Fantastic service and a great booth!
Thanks for the 5 stars Anne!
We have eaten here several times with guests who came to visit us in Florida and we have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious, the service is great and so is the atmosphere there. Our guests have always enjoyed their meals there as much as we do. Would highly recommend!
Thanks for the 5 stars
We used to enjoy everything about Yabbas for years. However , lately our experiences have been disappointing. Food was so-so with tough, rubbery fish. No butter was served with my baked potato. When asked to get some, it came long after my potato went cold. Ordered a bottle of wine. It came after we had finished 3/4 of our meal. Server never once came to see how things were or if we needed anything. This place was always popular and crowded for years, but it wasn’t crowded at all. Sure sign things aren’t going well.

Items on the menu were priced high. No additional add-ins were offered i.e. bread, salad etc. Prices were high in comparison to the offerings on the menu---and also the service was mediocre. Will choose a different place to dine the next time,
Thank you for your review Joan. Here at Yabba we strive to provide our guests with a high quality and affordable dining experience. We have been know as one of the most affordable restaurants on 5th avenue. Also we do have many salads on our menu starting at $11, as well as entree salads starting at $17. We do not serve plain bread, we offer our guests mini cornbread muffins, with cheddar cheese, a brown sugar topping, and served with our honey butter.
We had a great table outside. We were not rushed by our server. Very good wine selection. Very good service and excellent food. Perfect evening.
Thanks for the great review Roger!!
Hubby’s birthday great setting. Cozy and relaxed. Great service by Chase!
Thank you for the kind words. I will pass them along to Chase for you.
Unfortunately they brought out and place our main course on the table before we had finished our salad.
I know they have to turn the table over but that was rude.
Fantastic Evening. Dined with quests from out of state, first time together in over 25 years! Food was excellent, wait staff super, great table....will be back again and again.
Thanks for the awesome 5 star review
Great food, and we love the outside seating.
Thank you very much.
The food and service were excellent. I requested a table in the main dining room since the last time we were there, the live entertainment was mellow. This time it was very loud so we were annoyed by it.
The next time I'll request a table in the quieter front room.
We appreciate the 5 stars and feedback. Yabba offers live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays, it does tend to interfere with casual conversations but it has been a huge success for us. Most guests dance and really get into the party vibe. We would have moved you away and will definitely get you a quieter table on your next visit.
Great venue, with live music that night, however found the food to be mediocre and slow. We had a great server that helped to keep the night enjoyable
I am sorry to hear you were not happy with the service from the kitchen. I will share your feedback with the Chef so he can make sure Yabba is making every guest 100% happy while they are here. We are dedicated to being the best and hope to see you again soon so we can show you.
Great food, fun setting, good live music.
We were seated about 15 minutes later than our reservation, and the server could have had a little more personality, but overall, it was a really nice experience.
Thank you for the stars and the positive feedback. I will share some of your critiques with the staff so we are better for you next visit. Hope to see you again soon.
Hard to get a reservation for a last minute dinner on Saturday night in Naples but Yabba had a few openings so we gave it a try. The food was very good. Introduced some relatives to Stone Crab. They loved it. Excellent service all round. Wine pricing seems very fair.
Thank you very much for the kind words. Hope to see you again before Stone Crab session ends.
Yummy as usual. Early dining is a great deal.
Thank you for the perfect rating and kind words. Hope to see you again soon.
Great food and excellent staff.
Thank you for the stars and kind words. Hopefully we will see you again soon so we can earn that 5th star.
Great location and Live Music !
Food was very well prepared.
What , No bread with Dinner ? !
We appreciate the stars and your feedback. Yabba has not been serving bread for a couple of years now. Most people do not eat bread anymore so they can be healthier. By having a small charge for bread we are allowed to offer something better than just white bread and butter. Additionally, restaurants that do offer free bread work that cost into the price of everything so even if you are not eating bread you are still paying for it. Hope to see you soon so you can try one of our amazing Smurfs!!
Our food was great. The live music was really fun, but loud. It was a fun evening.
Thank you so much.
We were there with friends and were seated practically on the dance floor. Did not know being our first time to ask to be seated away from the music or outside. Although food and service were good, the music was so loud we could not have conversation with our guests. In my experience music should be at a lower volume until at least 8:30 or later. Will be back again but, will ask to be seated away from the music. On a positive note entertainment was good.

Our waitress Roisin was great !
Thank you very much, I will pass along your praise to Roisin. Hope to see you again soon.
Requested a table for a party of 4 in the front room of restaurant by one of the doors
We were seated at the best table
Thank you so much for the perfect rating. Hope to see you again soon.
