My husband and I have not visited this in a long time. Pricy and many items were sold out. Hard to go to a local fish restaurant and them out of fish! Not sure why this is talked about being one of the better restaurants in the area. Service slow and nothing special about this place. Parking is limited and... More

Our 2nd visit and again had a lovely meal, food was delicious but not inexpensive. Menu is small with some wonderful specials, but a missing food delivery meant a certain banana dessert was unavailable😂, BYOB is a bonus. Was completely booked so reservations necessary. Would definitely return!!! Tuna pizza is a must appetizer!

We have been going to Yellowfin for several years. After our visit in August, I had my 5 Star review deleted due to a terrible experience we had in 2016. Most likely if we had sat elsewhere in the restaurant, we would have had a better experience but we got who we got in terms of waiters. The food was... More

Never really crazy about this place..always TOO crowded and TOO noisy and TOO small. But last night, in anticipation of Huricaine Hermine,we decided to change our reservation in another place to a day earlier, to avoid the storm. We couldn't get into the other place and tried Yellow Fin. They took us for a late seating and it was crowded.... More

Great food but shifty pricing. Not only were we accused of not paying enough when our check was misplaced but then Lo and behold the book appeared.,,, thank God because the owner Gina was adamantly defending her workers... Which is good if you're not accusing your customers of cheating. Oh well. Mistakes happen. We gave it another shot ..... Great... More

The tables are packed so tight, that to enter/exit you need to disturb strangers to get to your seat. The restaurant was so LOUD that I couldn't hear someone two seats away and the servers had to YELL to be heard. We have been to over fifty countries and this was the loudest restaurant ever. If you tell the restaurant... More

Were unable to get reservations at Blackeyed Susans so we revisited an old favorite. It was good but it has not kept up with the competition. My black & blue steak was med rare. Each element of my lobster salad was good but visually the plate was overloaded. The beet salad was great looking & tasting. The duck was perfect,... More

No prices on specials, fake crab in an appetizer at this price that was a sin. Salmon undercooked, we didn't go there for sushi. Server reached in front us across the table to serve other people. Very expensive for the overall experience
