Thoroughly enjoyed our outdoor dining at Yabba! All food choices were good (swordfish, beef, grouper), and the half-price wines enabled us to step up our selections. Pablo was also very attentive. A really nice evening!

A bit costly
We even had to pay for bread in the form of biscuits

Responded 3 days ago

Thank you for your review. it is true we do not offer complementary bread. instead we offer our house made mini corn muffins, not biscuits, that are topped with a brown sugar crumble and served with a house made honey butter. They come 6 in a basket for $5.50 some of our neighboring restaurants offer "complementary bread and then offer a side of mashed potatoes for $14 dollars or a baked potato for $13 all of our sides are just 5.50.

The food and ambiance were good but we both wanted a side salad with our meal, and there were none available in the menu. We also found that there was no complimentary bread, so had to pay an extra $5.50 for muffins - something we found disappointing for such a quality restaurant.

We were having an enjoyable evening with our group until the server came out and told us our table of 8 were being too loud. We were probably laughing but not being offensive or inappropriate. We visit Yabba’s every month but this experience has ruined the restaurant and we will not be returning.

Thank you for your review. on the night of your visit 3 different family's asked to move either inside or to the opposite end of the outdoor patio that your were seated at. in addition you wrote "loud and proud" on your receipts. Of course we want you to have an enjoyable relaxed evening when dining in any of our restaurants but we want all of our guest to feel comfortable and able to enjoy there experience as well.

Slow waiter who did not want to put our appetizer order in until we ordered our meal. He did not tell us till 20 minutes after ordering our appetizer and said it was restaurant policy. Finally he put it in without ordering dinner.

Reservation at 5:45. Showed up 10 minutes early. 3 People at Hostess station. Told that our table would be closer to the timed schedule. Inside was totally empty. Stood outside in the line of Hostess station and watched as others went in and were seated. No one came and said you table is ready. Went in at 5:45 table in our name. Yes, this way to table in the inside that was totally empty. Bad start to meal.

Thank you for your review John. We apologize you had to wait 10 minuets for your reservation but we do this so that you and all of our other guests, 387 guests ate dinner on the night of your visit, will all have an enjoyable dinner that is both timely and still fell well attended to by the service staff, bar and kitchen. Controlling the flow of guests coming into the restaurant by holding them to there designated reservation times is a key factor in delivering that experience.

Sat outdoors cause of COVID only to be crowded over by bar overflow, very disconcerting. No one asked bar overflow to move and not encroach on diners even after mentioned it to waiter. When reserving table mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, no one even asked if we wanted dessert. Food good but atmosphere not worth returning for.

Thank you for your review Patricia. due to limited seats out door dining spaces are becoming over crowded. we have our tables spaced apart but with the high demand for outdoor seating people dont realize that a table inside that is spaced far away from people is a much safer alternative. please let us know next time and we can move you to a table inside that will be away from other diners.

We really enjoyed this place. Ended up eating at bar so we could hear music. Great bartenders and drinks. We loved our food. Crab cake was delicious. Also enjoyed the crab stuffed fish over rice it had the most delicious sauce. Appreciated the plastic partisans between groups at bar. Our only complaint was the host. We had made a reservation and came a few minutes early . Host was unfriendly and not helpful. Did not say they had a bar to wait at or how or where to wait. Told us nothing. Just rudely said couldn’t guarantee outside. We said no problem. He said checked in but didn’t say anything else. So we waited outside awhile but he never came out. Most who walked in were seated. So we went to bar on our own loved it and my husband then told him we were eating at bar instead. That was only time he actually acknowledged us said thank you so much for telling him. Since a host is a first impression definitely needs training. The rest of staff was fantastic. We almost left based on our interaction with host. This place had been recommended by friends glad we stayed really enjoyed it.

Always a great dining experience at Yabba. When returning to the parking garage after dining at Yabba, a couple, new residents to Naples, asked for dining recommendations. We said the best restaurants on 5th are Yabba, Pazzo and Chops are by far the best!

It seems as if they’ve limited the menu not as much to offer on it, the calamari was cheap with too many banana peppers in it than calamari. Salmon entrée delicious, Delmonico steak a little on the small side. We love the place but it seems little different these days.
