“An Amazing dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

It's rare to find a restaurant that is consistant with food and service....even harder to find a restaurant that is as good as Yolanda's. Our experience has been with dinner on each visit.

The food is creative, well plated and most importantly delicious. We have tried various menu offerings and found the same consistancy on each visit. The servers are attentive and friendly.

We found it by a coupon that came in the mail......but the experience was so good we didn't use the coupon. It's worth the trip, the price (which is very reasonable) and the experience.

Keep up the good work!

“GOT RIPPED OFF THERE FROM THE BARTENEDER”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Be careful in this place!!!The bartender padded my bill with an extra 25 dollar tip-after I tipped her over 20%. Aside from her stealing from me she overcharged me for every drink that my wife and I had. After questioning the rude and arrogant owner I was recompensated. I asked what was
going to be done about the bartender-he said he stands by his employees!!! This girl still works
there. Aside from the food being crap the owner and service are even worse. AVOID!!!

“Very Pleased”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Had drinks and dinner in the Bar lounge and was very satisfied with the service and food. Ate from the bar menu and my soup and burger were great. I will visit again.

“Stephanie is a hard worker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

The food was pretty good wasn't expecting too much after other reviews ...I will say Stephanie was the one running around taking care of everyone while 4 other waiter's stood around and hung out not once even attempting to help out...than Rachel decide to change her shirt right there at bar instead of going into bathroom...really...because of that not sure I will return. Owner obviously has no control over staff
