The food and the atmosphere is unlike anything in SWFL. Have a seat and transport yourself to an amazing meal and a vibe that is non-existant in Ft. Myers. It has become our favorite place for a weekend date night and I simply can not say enough about it. After trying various (ALL delicious) menu items, I must say that... More

Vegan diet asked for a dinner that was full of veggies and flavor. They were more than happy to cook a dinner that was not on the menu and accommodate my diet and it was the best meal I had all week while vacationing in Florida. I crave the taste and wished I could be closer. The veggies were crisp... More

We have taken friends to Yabo at least 6 or more times in the last few months and last night was another stellar experience! Reservations a must in season and check on line for their times of entertainment if you want the full show. Our group of six over 60 kids liked the rock art on the black walls and... More

Don't be dismayed by the decor or hard to read menus, the food is divinely prepared and paired. From the Caesar salad and daily flat breads, to seared to perfection scallops and enormous veal chop... This us where I take my out if town guests. But don't be in a hurry, enjoy your conversation.

Hidden at the far end of a strip mall, this place was a great find. Do not let the rock and roll bar motif turn you away. The food is amazing! Indoor and outdoor seating are available. Clientele was both casual and dressed up, a nice blend. Wine list was decent and they were missing a few menu items, but... More

How can a great Restaurant have such crummy toilets.Not very inviting. Also the decorating is dark and forboding. Shame, had such a good meal.

Loved this place for years until the happy hour got so big it took fifteen minutes to get a watered or iced down drink and menu was so poorly reduced. Patrons so involved with looking at who was there and shallow conversation that they can;t make room for another person and take a pocketbook off a chair so I could... More

We come to Yabo a lot. Especially for the happy hour. It's a nice happy hour for drinks and food. I almost always get the ceaser salad. The burger, the tomato mozzarella salad and the gnocchi are my other top choices. The place is really cool to look at. If you are into music this is the place for you!... More

We had a great meal here -- superb service, attentive to every detail, and we weren't exactly a small party (eight), so our male server had a lot to attend to. Did a great job. The food was great and lots of it. The Caprese salad appetizer is HUGE and very fresh! My mahi mahi was fresh and nicely prepared.... More
