“They nailed it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

I regularly visit YR when in Fresno on business and have not been disappointed. Most recently, I ordered the 14oz Ribeye Chicago Style served on a sizzling plate with butter. The steak was a great cut of meat and was a perfect medium-rare (not easy to get at some restaurants). I also enjoyed the double nut calamari app and the creme brûlée cheesecake for dessert - both were amazing! The service was attentive and the atmosphere was nice. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Fresno!

“Pretty good food but no need to go back for awhile unless it's for the bar specials and music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We had a fun night here with friends. I'd like to give YR a 3-4 on value, but that option isn't available. I rated the atmosphere based on restaurants in this area; this is a Fansler restaurant and he does like to make you feel as though you've left the central valley. I know this restaurant has turned into a hangout spot on some nights when there is live music and drink and appetizer specials and it might be fun to come back to that. This is ironic, because I think that after Williker's (how's THAT for old school?) Fansler wanted to stay away from that kind of venture, but I think that this restaurant is the closest to becoming a slightly more upscale, less TGI Fridays version of Williker's. Not that that's a bad thing- Fresno might be in need of a hangout with this vibe since there are only a couple outside of the tower district. Bottom line: try this as a restaurant at least once before simply making it your hangout. The food isn't roll-your-eyes-back-in-your-head-and-make-that-noise fantastic, but it is good, and it might be just what you're looking for.

“Good Anytime”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Every time we have dined at this restaurant the food and the service has been excellent. Best tables are away from the bar. The steaks melt in your mouth and the fish is always outstanding. Last time here we had the Brownie Sundae for dessert and shared because it is huge and delicious. I wish they were opened for lunch.
