The Customer Service is superb, the food is to die for and the atmosphere was over the top. You must try Yah Mon once or every month in your life time :). I can't wait to come back to Tampa and patronize this great establishment.

I absolutely enjoyed everything about Yah Mon. The owner was very pleasant and personable. The food was delicious. Our server was fantastic (I apologize because I can’t remember her name). The ambiance was very romantic as I was on a date night. I would absolutely refer friends and family to visit Yah Mon. I ordered the ribeye and it was very tender and juicy. The appetizer wings delicious. I can not say enough positive things about Yah Mon, just trust and go try it for yourself!!!!

The restaurant was very nice and the owners were very welcoming. I had the jerk chicken which came with rice, salad and a small pickle selection. The Jerk chicken portion was very good and is was spicy. I would imagine that you would be able to choose your level of spicyness but you may have to ask. The rice was cooked perfectly and the chicken was moist.

The owner Andre was overbearing, pushy, tried to up sell us on everything from appetizers all the way to dessert! Like a pesky car salesman, business must be terribly slow because he wanted us to buy everything!! This place is not worth the bill!!!

We finally found what we’ve been looking for. The Tampa Bay Area have some decent Caribbean restaurants but none with great food and a great atmosphere. I love taking my family to nice restaurants and we all love Caribbean cuisine but we can never have the best of both worlds until we discovered Yah Mon. Great food with a great dining experience. We’ve been 3x in one week. You may think it’s overkill but it’s not. There are many more items left on the menu that we can’t wait to taste.

The food here is excellent! They have a unique and delicious menu. The waitstaff is very attentive and kind. They gave us recommendations not only on food and drinks, but also other places go visit while in Tampa. We took their advice and we're not disappointed! I would highly recommend this place to adventurous eaters who like flavor!

Booked reservations 7 am that morning for booth. Drove an hour to get there. When I did arrive Manger refused to seat me at a booth, although all booths were empty. Very small crowded place
Food is overpriced, small portions. Manager had his 3 kids running throughout, chasing each other. Will not return.

The food was very spicy. I ordered red snapper which came as a small whole fish, deep fried with head, tail and all bones. Hard to eat. The desert took 30 minutes to be served. Owner's car was parked directly in front of the door, occupying the prime parking space in a limited space lot for customers.
Staff was friendly.

First time at this place. It is tucked away on the backside of a strip mall, so not so easiest to find. The place looked nice and the service was good. My partner had a variety platter including the jerk chick, chicken curry and oxtail, while I tried the jerk chicken pasta. There was ample food, but I was a bit surprised how overcooked the pasta was. With each bite it pretty much turned to mush in your mouth, with little texture. Not sure if that is typical of Caribbean food or not. The dish was certainly flavorful, but the texture was much too soft for my taste. Her food looked and tasted great.

Overall, a very good and worth returning to try some of their other dishes.

The food was excellent! I had the oxtail and my wife ordered the curry goat. They both were large portions that filled us up. Both entree’s came with rice and peas, plantain, and a side salad. The meals were piping hot when we received them only about a twenty minute wait for the plates. Server was a nice young lady however she could have been a bit more attentive. My appetizer plate was left on the table for the entire meal. Not that big of a deal but to some it may be. Speaking of appetizers the veggie patty was on point! Overall great place to eat, really nice decor don’t let the parking lot turn you away. We will most definitely be dining at this hidden gem in the near future!! Sorry I was too busy grubbing to take photos.

This was my first time here. I booked the reservation for our anniversary and the waiter delivered impeccable service to make it an enjoyable night. He was very doting and attentive and even played a special anniversary playlist to set the mood for us. Everything we ordered was very good and authentic; the mac and cheese, jerk chicken, curry chicken and curry goat. The brown stew chicken and ox tail were just OK. As a native NYer I was surprised to see NY prices in Tampa but the portions more than made up for that.

The food was excellent. The service, unfortunately, was not. Our food was more than 45 minutes getting to the table. Drinks were 20 minutes after placing the order. Our server seemed as if she had no training and this was her first job as a server. To wit: She took my order for an Arnold Palmer. Then returned after 20 minutes. When I asked her where the drink was, she said they were out of Arnold Palmers. (How can you run out of iced tea and lemonade?) The hostess, not the waitress, then brought me an Arnold Palmer. Weird. That said, the oxtail was to die for, as were the spicy chicken dishes. Disappointed that the restaurant had run out of curry goat. If you have plenty of time and service is inconsequential to you as a diner, the food is worth it.

We had reservations for 6:45 and we were seating quickly, but it took them over an hour to bring out our food, including the appetizer order and bread. At the hour and fifteen minutes make, I called out a server and they began to bring the bread out ten minutes later. All of our food was served about an hour and a half after we ordered it and we decided to cancel the salad order. The food was fine, I liked the jerk chicken, but it certainly wasn’t work a wait that long. The staff was friendly, but I think they need to work on managing the restaurant and making sure there is a enough staff working because we were not the only ones with a long wait.

This is my favorite place in the Tampa area. Yah Mon has a great quiet environment and a personal touch on every experience. The owner has greeted us every time I have come to the restaurant and the interaction was not forced. The food is top notch and some of the best Caribbean food i have had anywhere. I recommend this restaurant almost every day.

I was expecting to have a quiet dinner. The restaurant is very small and beautifully decorated. It is not a good fit for large groups. It would be perfect for a couple’s date or small groups. My Sunday evening was spoiled by a large party that included 7 adults and 7 children. They required a lot of the staff’s attention. The restaurant went from being intimate and cozy to being uncomfortably crowded. The food is too expensive if this is to be a family restaurant . My fish dish was over cooked. My husband’s was too salty to eat My son requested white meat chicken and received dark meat. After spending almost $150.00 for 3 dinners, this was not a good value or experience. I do not understand how it has received such high ratings for food. Decor and service are important but so is the food.
