I bought a online offer and went to the restaurant. It's decoration has a very intimate feel and it is as if Chef Tino's personality is reflected on it. The place is a little pricey for me (like $30 on a plate) but the food has very good quality and amazing taste. The downside of the place is that parking... More

Loved this restaurant. Quiet, dark atmosphere and wonderful service. The staff was almost too good to be true. They actually thanked us for coming to their restaurant right off the bat. I am a vegetarian which can be hard in Puerto Rico. I ordered pasta. Then the chef came over and told me that he could make several other dishes... More

My wife and I ate here under the recommendation of a friend who said chef Tino was one of the best chef's in Puerto Rico. He was supposed to have a cooking show on the food network, like the Puerto Rican Emeril. I have eaten at Emeril's in New Orleans, this is not Emeril's. First, it is loud. It was... More

First of all we will like to thank you for your visit and considerations. Yia's is not your average place, known for our unique style of decor and food. It's not for everyone, and we are very aware of that. We are a family owned restaurant that for almost 8 years now had been serving GREAT food with a GREAT... More

I went with my wife to dinner, the place seems interesting. Staff is very nice but the food is normal/avarage, not momorable. Bolitas de yuca: overcook; sangria: too sweet; altough they offer a nice selectiin of beers most them were not in stock. Pasta isabela was the best pasta I ever eat but the other stuff just make everything fall... More

I went to Yia’s after purchasing a “dinner for two” at a fundraiser event benefiting Carib Christian School. After I arrived the wait staff told me that Yia’s would not honor my coupon since they had already set aside a specific number of tables to accommodate patrons holding the same kind of voucher. The coupon expired that night. I reached... More

I have visited Yia's several times. I have mentioned how service was once not what we have expected and that chairs were not comfortable. All is great now!!! Perfectly well! The service is perfect, they have new chairs & food is great. The steaks are juicy and cook to perfection. The Churrasco is to die for, Porterhouse on mustard sauce... More

I Have visited this place twice, one was for a 15 person private activity and the other for some good Rib eye steak. The steak cooked to how I love it, medium rare was juicy & tender bursting with flavor. I've had good steak all over the world, but this one is definitely one the top three of my experience.... More

We went to Yia's recently and were impressed, in a positive way. We ordered the ribeye steak to share, medium well. We were afraid it would not be cooked as ordered, since we've had unpleasant surprises in other restaurants. I have to say it was cooked to perfection! And it tasted great! Service was good! Only suggestion is to have... More
