Had two strip steaks that were cooked perfectly but full of grizzle. Guess I should have known better and stuck with the pasta that they do very well. They did have great entertainment and great service though.

From the moment we walked in the door, we received excellent service - from the welcoming host who guided us to a great little table for two - to our attentive and lovely server Sara H. We enjoyed the fresh and tasty gorgonzola salad that was generous for us to share. The eggplant parmesan was also generous in size and... More

Chef Ryan is Awesome! I had the gnocchi and it was a winner. Gorgonzola salad was very good. For the main course I had their Lasagna, which is by far the best in town. Wine menu is very good, and everything on the menu is affordable. I love coming to this restaurant!

They have an unusual but interesting menu. The gnocchi are especially good and all the salads are very good. A little noisy on Music nights but not unbearable. Good service and nice bar.

Recently went to Yabo with my fiancé for our anniversary. Loved the rock memorabilia, dim lights, and guitar soloist playing while we ate dinner. Groovy experience and phenomenal food. Highly recommend.

Excellent food, excellent service, great atmosphere Every time we have visited we have enjoyed ourselves and the food. Very accommodating for both large and small groups. Would recommend reservations for larger groups so you're not disappointed

What a great place! We went for happy hour after hearing rave reviews from a friend. I really like the atmosphere and the friendly helpful staff. We tried several things on the menu. Choices were reasonably priced, and there was a good variety of them. I wasnt a fan of the calimari, but loved the pepperoni flatbread, pierogis and fied... More

Used to enjoy the intimate dining experience off McGregor but they opened a larger establishment off Summerlin and struggle for an identity. The open "garage door" from the bar to patio invites ALL of SW FL's insects in to dine with you. Thy are focusing on the bar/band scene more and lost their way.

Heard nothing but good things, figured it was time to finally try it. The gnocchi is out of this world along with the classic caprese salad. They also offer a late night tapas menu with awesome prices. Overall great food with good service. Will definitely be back!
