Grilled fish was over cooked and left under the warming lamp too long, as it had developed a crust on it. Black Grouper Scampi was really good however.
We had a fabulous meal here. Really enjoy the surf and turf. The wine list is very reasonable. Enjoy our server who took our time between each course we never felt rushed. Would certainly return again.
Good food and service. Would recommend. Fair pricing
This place is overpriced. Great location on 5th. Some good choices, but just not that special and not worth the prices. Very mediocre steaks.
It was disappointing that the restaurant did not do anything for my husbands birthday. I noted it on our reservation. Other than that, everything was good.
We loved Yabba’s. The food was so gormet! The bread and specialty butter was outstanding.
Our waitress was so sweet and helpful. We sat outside on a beautiful night.
Crab cakes were good but we waited an hour and 15 minutes for our entrée. We were told the kitchen was backed up - still that's no excuse. The food is probably worth the money, but the lack of service ruins the meal.
Nice outdoor seating— pleasant staff and lovely dinner!
Yabba Island Grill's decor is outstanding, and it's a fun place to have dinner. We had a reservation and were seated promptly and courteously. Our table was in a raised area, and it was perfect for viewing in all directions and really feeling the energy of the place. Menu choices were interesting and fun, and the prices were affordable. Everything was great; our only issue was that there was too long a wait between our soup/salad and entrees. Our waitress did apologize, however, by saying that our entrees would be coming soon. The entrees were worth the wait!
Great service, a bit noisy but it’s one of our favorite restaurant when our 20 something sons are visiting.
We are outside in their covered eating area. They have a great dinner pricing for meals ordered before 5:30. Service was good and attentive. We have 2 children and they enjoyed the restaurant as well.
Overall nice experience & good location. Area outside the restaurant is open and good place for several people to wait on table if needed.
Food was great. We had oysters on the half shell, stone crab claws to start. Fresh snapper was perfectly cooked, and we highly recommend the Rasta pasta. We sat outside and it was nice, but the tables are very, very small which was uncomfortable given the massive plates.
Service was painfully slow. Drinks took forever to arrive as did food. No apps and mains only took about 1.5 hours to arrive. Young unprofessional servers. Was rather painful. But food was delicious. So flavorful and unexpected.
Had a reservation but still had to wait almost 1/2 hour and only seated when we went back to host and asked “how much longer?” leading us to believe that we had been forgotten. Four meals. Two people liked theirs and two did not. Sauce on salmon was so salty it was hardly edible and beef in one entree was tough. Definitely not worth the price. Our Server was very good, although we never did get our second round of drinks. We won’t be back anytime soon.
Our service and food was outstanding brining with our experience at the bar having drinks and an appetizer while waiting for our table to become available. The bar tender/ server (did not get his name) was extremely attentive and “entertains”. Dinner was superb in all respects and, in particular, the service and attention of our server Olivia , a great representative for Yabba’s for sure.
We go to Yabba every year when we come to Naples. We love the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. The food is wonderful with great presentation.
Excellent meal with good service! After a mishap caused by another guest, the manager handled it very well and offered a round of drinks! I
We went with another couple for their early dining menu. What a great deal - 50% off entrees, except only 20% off steaks. Besides the great price, it gets really busy and very loud as the night wears on. I only gave the food 4 stars because we had mixed results - 2 had pork chops, which were great and 2 had lobster, which was not very good. Service was good except they really want you gone quickly after the early dining deal - coffee and dessert not offered. She just brought the check. I get it, but we felt rushed. We were also told we had to order at 5:15, despite the fact that menu said until 5:30. Waitress said it took 15 minutes to put the order in! Great value on entrees of course, wine and beer expensive. But Naples is expensive.....
My dinner guests didn’t like the angel hair pasta in the Rasta pasta they said it should be linguini.
Excellent food, steak perfectly done, chicken delish, sweet potato fries, yum!
Outside watching pedestrian traffic that. We like,
Waitress very attentive
Felt we were being rushed and would like to have more time between courses. Food was good but not brilliant, our Tuna was very bland , probably frozen .If we went again we would ask to be given more time.
There were four of us. I’ve been going there for years. This is the first time I was disappointed. They have definitely kept with Jones’s. Selection of food was very different than it used to be and pricey.
We ordered soup and never got it. So again I was very disappointed.
We went for the early dining special so it was a great value and our server was excellent!
My guest meals were good. My lobster was not completely cooked.
We went there on a Sunday. They open at 4:45. If you order before 5:30, dinner entrees are 50% off, steaks are 20% off. I ordered pecan chicken which was excellent. Our waiter was very prompt and attentive. Yabba is a great restaurant to visit.
great food and wine list. good value on wines. nice ambiance
Fabulous Food! Wonderful Vibe, both in its location and the inside decor! Just a wonderful experience. We had a great time. Thanks Yabba! The cheesey garlic biscuits and the cornbread were over the top! Carrot cake, warm & with Ice Cream, YUM. Not something you find just anywhere. Fresh and expertly prepared seafood and steaks. Delicious! Definitely recommend.
Great time, excellent food.
great menu. Great wine list. Unbelievable desserts. Superior service. Our group of 6 people were amazed.
Delivered bad smelling crab claws to the table that we sent back.The smell stayed with us and it ruined the evening. Only gave us a free round of drinks.Hope it was worth losing customers.Could have got sick.
Familie of 4 from the Netherlands, enjoyed the food and the nice and helpful waitress.
Table was ready on time, service great and dinner delish!
We have been coming here for 7 years. The food and service are always excellent. We had friends in from out of town. It was their first time here and they loved it.
Nice enough. Good service in nice environment. Good not quite up to expectations but OK.
Yabba never disappoints. Have been here with large group as well as just husband and me. Food is good. Our service by Maya recently was just right. Attentive without cloying. We dined early before theater, 5:45. We had a table near the stree twindows and could watch people walking by. Also, at this hour noise level was low. As people filled the space we were in the noise level did not get so loud that we couldn't hear the four of us talking. What a joy!
Atmosphere was excellent, but service was not ideal. Took over an hour for food to arrive. Food was good, but not exceptional based on price. We had to ask for bread and refills of drinks. The sweet potato fries are delicious as well as group, but other food was mediocre. Will not return when visiting Naples as there are much better options.
We were seated at 5:30 with reservations that specifically for early dining only to find because the waitress didn’t “take” our order they would not honor early dining prices and just repeated those r the rulesSeemed their only interest was in selling bottles of wine which delayed Submitting the dinner order—seemed an intentional move on the staff
We chose Yabba because they accomodate large parties nicely. It is our go to for out of town guests. The choice cut of steak and the whole lobster was delicious.
We sat in the front section with our friends and were able to chat without a lot of noise.
The food was great for the price.
It was our third time eating at Yabba and would go back.
