We really enjoyed our dinner at Yah Mon. The restaurant is very nice and the service was excellent. The combo meals are expensive but it is a ton of food. The Oxtails were excellent and the Jerk chicken is superb. All in all a very nice experience.

We couldn’t give the ambience more stars because even though we requested a booth when we made a reservation, we weren’t given one. They have 7 booths and tables for 2-6 in the middle of the restaurant but when we asked to be seated at a booth, we were told that they are reserved for larger parties (we were 2). Only one booth was seated during the hour we were there eating. No excuse for that.

This place is a hidden gem. The ambience and food were excellent. The service was some of the best I’ve had. The owner and the rest of the staff could not be more gracious. My only negative is I don’t think they need the TVs as they just detract from the totally cool setting.

Amazing evening with my wife. Andrae and Janise went all out in welcoming me and my wife to this lovely amazing restaurant. So clean and just good food. Better yet delicious food. Very rare you find this type of wonderful hands on customer service. All the employee greeted us and was attentive towards us. Jerk wings and co co bread yum. Oxtail. Mmmmgoood... goat just delight. And the bread pudding so great with ice cream on top. We had a great time and will be back. Prices were on point. They should be rated Michelin... because no service is like this. YAh MON KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...

Very amazing experience for our valentine dinner, we got there and were greeted promptly it was very pleasing, when we were sat it was with an amazing host and beautiful table decoration that fit the occasion. Food was amazing, the menu was a fixed rate that had a platter for an appetizer, two entrees and two desserts with two soft drinks. The entrees came out in a very timely manner, I had the tofu curry and can say I would go back over and over again for it. And then we had the choice of two desserts. Overall I loved the food. Moreover, the runners were also very nice offering sauces and checking up on us also. But Andre most definitely made the experience the best for me and my date. In the beginning he pulled out a long stem Rose came to the table and told her It was a pre planned gift for her from me. It was not, but something he did at every table with the dates. He checked up on us, complimented what we had on, asked for our names gave a name. If anything could’ve made the night better it was his amazing service.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The oxtail, and ribeye steak was amazing. I can see why they are 5 stars . The owner really care about the customers experience. We should have more customer service like what they give. The table was so nicely done. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable." Every time I’m in town I will come visit . I find it hard to understand why people complain about not getting great service here. Because I got the best service and continue to get the best service Everytime I’m in town. It’s beautifully design inside. Bathrooms are so clean. Andrae and Janise was amazing.

The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. We had a sampler platter and a couple of appetizers and really enjoyed everything on the plate. The flavors were amazing. And the leftovers the next day were even better. The service was top notch. We will be back.

Wife graduation day dinner plan destroyed


Made and confirm reservation also called 2 hours in advance and when we arrive ( did I mentioned our 2 kids are with us ) the gentleman greeting and simple state that there will be a 15 minutes wait . So we Waited 20 minutes and I did come back to see him and gave my table to another group. At the same time he his saying the same thing he states to me to another group.

Very disappointed of that restaurant for not using the open table app correctly

We went to boca and we were very very satisfied

Celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary. Amazing food, wonderful service. I had the veggie patty meal and it was to die for. The atmosphere was perfect for the occasion, they even played our wedding song. We will definitely be coming back next year.

It was a pleasant find with diverse options for Caribbean food. Both the omnivores and vegetarians at our table were impressed. Will be back next trip to Tampa!!!

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.

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.
