My husband and I pass by Yabo on the way to the beach all the time and we always say we wanna eat there and now, we finally did! The restaurant has a cool atmosphere and unique character! Loved that they had some local craft beers on tap. Service was great and the food was delicious. We had the Truffle... More

YABO is now open for lunch (Monday thru Friday). Same great service, salads, truffle fries, flatbreads, and burgers. We had the fish of the day sandwich (delicious). Some of the other menu options we look forward to trying -the "the cod father", reuban, chicken parm sub, rigatoni bolognese, and veggie spaghettini.

First time to this restaurant. When we walked in around 1 pm the place was empty. We sat inside at the bar a little leery that we were the only people in the restaurant. We were looking for some appetizer bar food but were too early for happy hour which starts at 3. Stevie, the bartender gave us the happy... More

This was the first time we visited this restaurant which is very close to home. We were pleasantly surprised that Happy Hour drink prices are available all night on Mondays. They had a happy hour appetizer menu through 7PM. Portions were large enough to share. Friends had the gorgonzola salad and we had the Fries which came with 2 dipping... More

Intimate, close to home restaurant. Great food. I had "the cod father", it was enough food for two people, very good. My fiancé had the flatbread, he liked it. Service is great. A little expensive, depending on what you order. But I loved it.

I walked in here for lunch. One person was eating near the bar. No one else was there. Lunchtime? No one. Red flag. I stood at the entrance for at least 5 minutes. I know they saw me. I was dining alone. I still think I am entitled to a "someone will seat you in a moment" or "Hello, welcome... More

We gave it a try and were disappointed. Romance is not painting walls black and put a candle on the table. Looks more like a cheap version of a misic bar that also serves food.. Menue is short, but promising. I heard about the gnocci and found them as an appatizer for $12... When I asked how much the dinner... More

We were really excited to try Yabo out. Everything was so fantastic from the wine to the gnocchi to the specials we ordered. The vibe was very fun- it's kind of artistic with mostly musical inspiration. We will be back.

We read some reviews in a tour book and it stated that Yabo is one of the best dinning at Fort Myers. Overall we were disappointed. The appetizers were delicious but that was it. We both ordered the special, mine was Lamb shank and it was OK. My husband ordered the grouper, that was not good. The fish was cooked... More
