Delicious !! Our only complaint is that we were placed outside but the strong smell of cigarette smoke wafted over the fence during our meal.

Already recommended this to my friends in the area. Great food, and service was great. The environment is amazing, although we realized the plants were not real which was a bummer. Portions were great size and plenty of options.

I ordered the kimchi pasta, which was really good. However, the spam musubi and the Yellow House sampler were not good. It tasted like what you would get at the ready to eat food at the grocery store (didn’t taste fresh). :( My friend and I got hot drinks too, but my friend’s latte was room temperature when it came and we had to send it back and it took so long before it came back.

The service was outstanding though! Our server was really attentive and every time we rang the bell to ask for things, the staff was very responsive.

I went for my birthday and called in advance to make sure my party of 11 had private seating. The staff assured me that we'd be in a private room, but when I got there, we were seated in the back room with several other tables.

There were buttons to press to call the staff, but they never came. We had been pressing the buttons all night for drink refills and other things, but not once did anyone come by. My boyfriend had to get up each time to find the staff. We were done with our meal, but had to wait a while for our checks despite hearing the bell go off after pressing the button. When my boyfriend alerted them, they frantically came by and ripped the buttons off the wall, claiming they didn't work.


The food was alright, not phenomenal.

In all, I would avoid this place. It really set a damper on my birthday night.

Haven’t been here for awhile ( since pandemic) but this place is always our favorite ( husband and I). Staff were patience, of course the food is good as always and the patio is really nice. Thanks to our server last night for putting us to the patio ( initially he said it’s for 2 guests only and we’re 4). Thank you!!! Appreciate your kindness and patience with us. For sure, we’re coming back!

Surprisingly big inside. Loved the decor. Can come here on a date night for coffee/dessert or with family for dinner. Service was really polite and accommodating. Food and dessert was delicious and interesting! If traveling on a Saturday night be prepared for traffic and difficult parking, but luckily they have $3 valet which made it stressfree for my mom. Overall a great experience!!

Had dinner with my girlfriend and it was beyond my expectations. We had a strawberry lemonade and blueberry jasmine tea for drinks. Both drinks were delicious! Then our food came out: Hamburger steak and Yellow House combo. Honestly the meal I've had in a long time; everything was fire! If you like spicy, I'd definitely recommend. We finished our food journey with some shaved ice which was the perfect end to this summer night romantic dinner. Highly recommend!

Interesting and innovative new menu. A nice place to take a break from it all - guess why I keep going back. Keep up the good work.

Second time here, and the verdict is the same. I won't be a regular here because of the service and the fact that they will allow people to smoke on the patio area (which is most of the seating there as far as I can tell).

The Yellow House is quite unique. I would return to this restaurant even though there were a few things that weren't so pleasant but tolerable.

1. They were not able to readily find our reservation. In the end, we were seated in a study room. It is quite uncomfortable to speak freely when there are people who are trying to study.

2. They allowed smoking in the outside area which is disturbing for other guests.

3. Our waitress was in such a hurry that she kept on disrupting us while we ordered.

4. The waiters didn't clear our table even after several additional orders. Our plates continued to pile up on our table. They only took everything away after we handed them the card.

Valet parking is great at $2. The food w

This place is a real find, a very cozy place for friends and family. The food is great and the tea selection is even better. It's a great place to relax and unwind. Been trying different items on the menu and haven't been disappointed yet. I'll be back for more.

This is a wonderful oasis in the middle of the city. Once inside, you feel like you are in a story book garden - a great place for kids or just to relax with tea. They have an interesting variety of food and everything we tried from the noodles to the stews were great. I was especially surprised at the selection of medicinal teas - not everyone has these readily available. I'd go back just for that.
