Joe was an amazing waiter and we loved Peter the singer
We are residence here in Naples and this is our favorite place.
Food is always good and staff very friendly and happy now that there is music and the last two performers were excellent!!!!
I have sent many many people to Yabba's
Family from out of town were visiting
Our server Katie was excellent and took great care of us. The Host was very accommodating and was able to seat us outside. The food was delicious and served promptly. We had a wonderful time
Great experience as always
Loved the coconut shrimp! Great everything...The ambiance, the service as well as the food and cocktails.
Great food and great service.
Thanks for the 5 stars Marv!
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!
Thanks for the awesome review Jackie!
A bit costly
We even had to pay for bread in the form of biscuits
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.

Sat in front room right by open doors, it was great and our server Connor was terrific! Will definitely be back!
Our waiter, Conner, was very good. I have food issues and he was very gracious to check everything with the kitchen.
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.
One of our favorites in Naples! Friendly atmosphere and servers.
Thanks for the awesome review Maureen!! We hope to see you at Yabba again soon!
The food was very food especially the crab cakes and the stone crab claws. The service was excellent and very friendly. My wife's steak was a bit overcooked but overall it was a pleasant dining experience.
Thank you for your review Mauricio. Great to hear everyone enjoyed there food. Please come back and see us again soon so we can make your wife's steak perfect!
The food is always awesome. Love the ambiance. Love Yabbas!!
Thanks for the stellar review Jeanie!
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.
The food was wonderful and our server Jessica was fabulous! Happy Anniversary!
Thank you for the awesome 5 star review !
Yabba is always the best dining experience. Best value for early dining and outstanding service.
Thanks for the great review David!
Delicious dining with a beautiful outdoor seating spot was what we were looking for, and Yabba Island Grill checked the boxes perfectly for our dinner with friends.
Thank you for the great review!
Way too loud with live music. Was not expecting live music. Way too loud for my taste.
Thank you for the stars. please let us know if the entertainment is to loud while your in the restaurant and we would be more than happy to turn it down for you.
Very enjoyable dinner with friends. Good food, service, and entertainment.
We had a festive party of 5 at a small table outside. The table would have been better for four, but we insisted on being outside so the smallish table was our own doing. Food, drinks, ambience and service were all terrific.
Thank you for the 5 stars
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.
Excellent meal !
Thank you for the 5 stars!
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!
Thanks for the great review and recommendation David!
Great Restaurant! The setting was magical with all the pretty lights. Excellent service! Delicious food!! The live music was such a delight! We had a great time!
Thank you for the stellar review! We have live music every friday and saturday from 6-9. hope to see you at Yabba again soon!
Birthday celebration with friends. The outdoor area is lovely and vibrant. Great service and food

Great food and Katie was fabulous. Noise made chatting very dit
Thank you for the stars
Fantastic every time we go to Yabba!! One of the best meals for the price in Naples.
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.
Outstanding Food and Service!
Thank you for the 5 stars!
Great food and service
Thank you for the 5 stars!
We enjoyed our meal and the service! Our waiter was amazing! The check in process was lacking, we didn’t feel like we were guests. I wish it had been more welcoming and inviting.
