Great food

The food and the ambience it's great,the day we went there was live music,the only thing it's that it's too expensive for the amount of food they serve you,I guess that is because it's fine dining but still I have been in other fine dinning restaurants and the portions are more generous, the taste... read more

I usually don't go to the same restaurant more than once. Yia's is an exception. I've been here three times so far and will be back. The decor is dark, like many have already said. But, I like the look. It reminds of a lounge in a major city (ie NYC or Chicago). Music matches. Chef Tino and his staff... More

Excellent meal. Very good service. If you are in the west side of the island this is a good spot to have a very cozy meal. Recommend as a must

Chef Tino received us and explained the whole menu for the night. We had an awesome Tuscany soup to begin with and ordered our duaghter's food. We explained to the chef about our daughter's food allergies and he assured us that everything would be taken care of, and that was the case! The food was tasty, delicious and beautifully presented.... More

I have gone three times to Yia's because truthfully the food at the restaurant is very good. What always has me rethinking my returning is the dark atmosphere. I'm not a fan of the very dark lighting that prevents me from enjoying the presentation of my meal and the red and black color that gives the place a very Gothic... More

The decoration too dark, not like us. The service ok. The food flavors average. The skirt steak appetizer was oooversalted. The house rice was good.Large amount of food serving. It is a little pricey for a restaurant in this area. We expected something better. We would not return again

The place is just amazing. The chef visit every table, tell the recomendations, if there is something you want that is not on the menu and they have the ingredients, they will cook it for you, is unbelievable. The food is incredible. The place is really cozy, every table feels really private and enjoyable. I will come back for sure.

I went with my family on January 2, After seating Chef Tino came to our table explain all the dishes and talk to ours kids about food, he also talk about his family. They deliver an exceptional meal, including the kids plates. Taste, presentation from appetizers main course and desserts was as expected.
