Something different and unique

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!

Not bad, but nothing to write home about for the prices they charge. The service and atmosphere were good, but this is more of a Bar than a Resturant.

Decent setup , reminds you of a rock club -dark walls with musician pics and posters scattered throughout . We had a reservation and we were started off right away with drinks and a crusty bread with butter/mashed garlic and oil. Perfect ! Appetizers were tomato crab bisque (superb with bread) , Mac and cheese(cheesy goodness) and the Cesar's salad(huge... More

Yabo is a trendy bar and restaurant with unique dishes and live music. I've been several times with my wife and friends and we always enjoy our time there. The seating area is relatively small and fills quickly, so reservations would be advised. The menu items are always tasty if a bit too limited in scope, so if you are... More

This was our first time visiting Yabo but will definitely not be our last. My friend and I decided to celebrate our birthday here and we were not disappointed one bit. We had the calamari and flatbread of the day for appetizers, both were excellent... the calamari was tender and the sauce was amazing, the flatbread was perfect with fresh... More
