We were seated at 7:30 which was on time. When we tried to order, we were told many times that they were out of food we wanted to order, including hamburger buns for a hamburger order. Once we did order, we didn't get our food for over 1.5 hours. I ordered a beer to come with my entree, but never got it. It was a busy weekend night on President's Day weekend but sheesh. We were told that the kitchen manager was on vacation all that week...bad idea to allow that to happen.

I was terribly disappointed after hearing good things about this restaurant. We waited more than one hour for our dinner and the waitress was very nice and told us there were problems in he kitchen. Our mussel appetizer was salty and extremely creamy that you couldn’t taste the fish and we got the vegetable lasagna which came out as a soup bowl of raw vegetables in a cream sauce and no ricotta. We sent back and again the waitress apologize and told us they were having problems in kitchen. The waitress was very nice but never offered us another meal she just gave us the check less the dinners but we left disappointed and hungry , so we went to another restaurant for dinner. Very disappointed and someone should teach the chef on how to make lasagna or simply change the name to vegetable soup in a cream sauce.

Waited 1-1/2 hours for our food. Unacceptable

Tonight’s dinner was easily the worst dining experience we’ve ever had in Naples.

Atmosphere similar to a Disney-property dining room.
Cilantro allergy made clear and first dish comes piled high with — guess what — cilantro. Waiter removed cilantro right there in front of us — with his hands. Revolting.
Water glass chipped and with long crack.
“6.5 oz.” file fish was actually minute. The accompanying “mixed vegetables” was actually all squash.
Salt and pepper shakers appear to never have been wiped, with greasy handprints all over them.
Food arrived over-cooked, cold, and late. Dishes inaccurately described.
Clean utensils requested never arrived.
AC blowing so hard we were chilled for 20 minutes after we left.
Loud rock music and abundance of loud children made this the perfect storm of horrible-ness.

Kitchen was likely overwhelmed, but there’s no excuse for having such a poorly trained staff in Naples at high Season.

Usually Awesome but kitchen fell short this time. My husband and I took my mother here for dinner. One of her favorite places. We had apps at the bar - drinks, green beans, and crab cakes were fabulous and so was Bishop. We went into dinner and had many issues. More apps came out quickly and they were good ... then there was dinner. My mom ordered a Jumbo Stone Crab for $3995 that came out and was the size of a large thumb ... perhaps. She asked for it warm with drawn butter but it came out cold without butter. We waited another 5 minutes for that. I ordered the Mahi Mac (which I've had before) which was supposed to come with veggies - NO veggies. I also ordered a baked potato - they brought out cold with no butter or sour cream. My husband ordered the spicy steak dish which is supposed to be steak medallions with crab, lobster and shrimp ... THERE WAS NO SEAFOOD AT ALL ... JUST 3 PIECES OF STEAK!!! When the waitress came over, and we complained a little mostly about the stone crab, she came back and told us the Manager took the ENTIRE meal for all 3 of us off the bill. There was no check at all. NOW - THAT'S HOW YOU MAKE UP A SCREWED UP NIGHT! THIS IS WHY I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YABBA'S. THEY HARDLY EVER SCREW UP BUT WHEN THEY DO, THEY KNOW IT, ACCEPT IT, AND COMPENSATE FOR IT. I WILL BE BACK MANY MORE TIMES BECAUSE OF THIS!

This is a great restaurant if you don’t mind the organized chaos. Our reservation was for 7:30 but didn’t get seated until 8:15. Once we sat down the service was great. Food and drinks where delivered on a timely basis. Our waitress was great, very nice, friendly and very profesional. Desserts where awesome. I would highly recommend to friends and family.

Nothing Special. Did not have there sh*t together at all. No bread until we were halfway through dinner. Missed on some other things as well.

Excellent except the shrimp cocktail had very small shrimp. When brought to the waitresses attention she just shrugged her shouldars. Otherwise no complaints

My companions had good meals. I had the fried grouper and shrimp that wasn't as good. The dish was a bit overcooked and the breading masked any flavor of the fish and shrimp. The staff was exceedingly helpful as I required handicap seating.

We had a 7:45 reservation and were not seated until 8:15. Then when we were seated we were put right by the door.

We have been occasional diners at your restaurant for many years. We found the overall experience disappointing compared to the past. The Grouper Scampi lacked taste . The mixed green salad was good and the wine and drinks were good. Our friends felt that their meals lacked taste also. We did not have any beef so we can not comment on that.

Always enjoy our visits to Yabba and this was no exception. Great experience!

It was Valentines Day and while we were rushed to order, we learned that our server was helping us to take advantage of the early dining prices until 5:30 so it was fine. My only disappointment was that I chose from the full price menu & ordered 1 stone crab claw of the largest size. It was $16 a piece and I got maybe 2 bites from it. Not reasonable at all. Otherwise the food was good.

All 6 of us had a wonderful experience, which is always true a Yabba.

Everything was great!!!!!!! Great food. Had out of town guests. Could not have chosen a better place. Loved sitting outside and watching everything on 5th Avenue.
