My wife got a gift card for Yabo, we are both very glad she did. Memorable. This is a must visit. My wife had a salad to start, I had the crab bisque. She liked the salad, the bisque was...memorable ! Lots of crab, nice a creamy. She had a drink, I opted for chiraz. The meal came with bread... More

We celebrated our company Christmas get together with 20 plus attending. We had a limited menu but all the choices were delicious. I had the Lasagna Bolognese. It was great! Appetizers and salad was fresh and tasty. Wait staff very attentive. Atmosphere fun, eclectic but a bit noisy. I will go back to explore the menu my own.

This place is a bar and should stick to that. The food is horrendous. Ordered lasagna and it was covered with a white creamy velveeta like cheese sauce. Scrapped the sauce off but still could not eat what was under it. My friend had to ask again what she ordered as it was nothing like what was expected. Sent lasagna... 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
