We chose Yabba because of its close proximity to the theater, which it is right next to. I ordered the Vegetable Lasagna, made with vegetable noodles... (not pasta noodles). It came with a vodka sauce. If somebody orders this type of dish, they are usually very health conscious, which I am. The vodka sauce that is mixed into it is sooo loaded with cream. I asked for it on the side and was told it was all mixed together, pre-made like that. So I thought I would try it. But Yabba really missed the mark, because they should know that a health conscious person usually does not want all that cream. Maybe having it also available with just a marinara type sauce would be a suggestion. Service was great. Restaurant is lovely to be in.

Service was ok. Food was not cooked properly outer surface was hard and very crisp. Inside fish was not cooked. When asked how the food was and explained the food wasn’t that great and possible not cooked on the inside the waitress oh ok. And brought the bill. Must have been a bad day. Unfurtunaty I won’t go back.

From the beginning when our hostess (who was incredible) seated us, we had a great time. Spicy Steak dish was a bit disappointing as the "medallions" of steak were barely large enough to make a meal for a small appetite. But all else was great. Good menu and great deals on wine.
Will definitely go back and tell friends to try it out.

Third time there this seaso . Each visit has been very good. All in our pry you enjoyed the meal and all would return.
If I had a negative comment, it would only be to turn the music down a bit, and maybe a softer type of music.
Great restaurant, will definitely return when back in the fall.

He was attentive coming over several times to see how our meals were & bringing over additional water.

Lovely restaurant! Good service by Chris and delicious food! "Specials" are a bit pricey! It's nice to sit outside on the side patio and people watch while enjoying the evening. Right next door to Sugden Theater if your going to a play afterwards

We have been several times we love it.
Waiting until into April to go back, not so many people.
The valet parking downtown is awesome, would not frequent as much without it.
We just had a simple date night and choose Yabbas.

Have dined there many times over the past three years and have always loved it for the food and value. This time the menu items have changed (been removed) and what I had to eat in the past was not as good or as large and the price increased 30%.

Since we had a large group of 9 girls of all ages, I thought Yabba Island Grille was the best pick for showing off downtown Naples. I had also listed on Open Table that we were celebrating a birthday & the waitress remembered & even brought out a birthday dessert and sang happy birthday. Nice surprise. We all had something different & everyone enjoyed their meal.

Thank you Yabba! We are already recommending your restaurant! The early-bird dinner & special on a bottle of wine made for a very affordable dinner, and a VERY delicious dinner!!

We'll be back!!

We had a great meal. Our group included a 6 year-old and a person requiring a gluten-free menu. My husband was disappointed in his meal. He thought he ordered blackened grouper and it came deep-fried, Not sure if he misread the menu or it wasn't clearly represented. My rasta pasta was fantastic. We wished we had asked for an outside table. Their area is away from the traffic

We have been coming to Yabba's for over 15 years and the updates to the decor a few years ago are great but the recent menu updates took away some favorites and limited the choices. The food was all good and the appetizers were good but some favorites were missing. Fast service and it was nice to be able to sit outside on a pretty evening. We will come back but hope they bring back a larger menu and have more local fresh fish choices.

The service for 4 was very good and most of the food was very good, but the medallions of beef were very small and they were chewy so I suspect they were not tenderloin. If they were tenderloin then they cut one piece into quarters and gave me 3/4. The spicy seafood topping on the beef was very good. My dish was accompanied with lots of vegetables so I did not leave hungry. I would go back again.

Perfect meal before the show at Sudgen Theater; surprisingly delicious sushi, would definitely order again. Wish the server or hostess had told us about happy hour; we had no clue until the check came and the second round of drinks was more expensive than the first round - would have ordered the second round earlier. Will know for next time, because there definitely will be a next time. Enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service.

Family dinner on our vacation to Naples. The service was terrible and the food was incredibly overpriced. In addition I left an expensive pair of sunglasses in the booth. When I called to see if they were found I was told to come in and look through the lost and found because so many sunglasses were left there daily. Upon returning to the restaurant, the lost and found had a total of six pairs of glasses. Far too many for the hostess to look through on the phone apparently. Nevertheless my glasses were not there. Save yourself the time, money and frustration by going some place else!

We enjoyed our evening but felt rushed to order. 2 of our dinners were incorrect and one came with all the sides that were specifically asked to be excluded. The manager came over even though we did not complain and removed 2 meals from our bill. Nice touch.

We were seated in the front of the restaurant. Do not sit in the front of the restaurant. You are completely disconnected from the true ambiance of the rest of the restaurant.

The gulf oysters were not good. They were very small and not shucked properly. If the manager is reading this, please properly train the kitchen staff that shuck your oysters.

Our entrees were served while we were still eating our appetizers. This makes we want to walk out of the restaurant on the spot and tell them to charge the bill to the smug waiter with the attitude.

The fish entrees should be 8 ounces. 6.5oz is for the birds.

After my Yabba Island dinner, I feel I received the worst experience a customer could have.

I still tipped 20% because karma is not worth it.
