This place has gone down hill with worn out stained fabric booths and no soap in the bathroom. The menus were dirty and hand annotated with many dishes crossed out and prices increased substantially. Only 3 appetizers on the menu and no specials. No bread...or rolls with dinner. A cup of chowder was $16 and a bowl was $24. 2 dinners came out 25 minutes after the other two meals with no comp for the wait. The server had lots of excuses but didn't attempt to make up for the late meals. The ribeye was tough and overcooked. The pizza and burger were the best dishes. I dont recommend Yes Bistro for a special occasion. I am so disappointed.More

We ate here last night on a whim. It was great! The pizza was thin crust cooked in an open flame oven. Had to take some home with us. They are going to update their menu at the end of July. We are going back...for their Sunday brunch this week!More

Been coming here for a few months on and off. Biscuits and gravy are delicious. Low staffing due to the place recently re-opening, makes for some long wait times but not too bad. Food and atmosphere is great and we are excited for the liquor...license to come up, should be a few more weeks. Mimosas in the mean time are pretty good. Reasonable price considering the higher class atmosphere.More

I was beyond impressed by quality of food and atmosphere! Rare find in East Anchorage! Oxtail pasta plate blew my mind.

We live right down the road from Yes Bistro and have gone several times over the years, and the new management at the restaurant is amazing. The menu is completely redone, and everyone in our group had great meals, from steak to seafood to pizza....The service there was exceptional, all the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend it! We will definitely be going back for more date nights.More

Food is average to below. Long wait for food. Not going back. Save your time and money. Pick somewhere else. The Denys across the street is a better bet.

We had enjoyed meals here before, and decided to have lunch there. We had purchased four $50 coupons to use at their restaurant, and when we went to pay using a coupon, the manager became extremely loud,and would not honor the coupon, called us liars,...dishonest, and thieves while everyone in the restaurant watched. It was so embarrassing. He could have calmly said he would not honor the coupon, but he had to shout at us for five minutes while I gave the waitress a credit card to cover our bill. Never going back, and have told as many people as possible about their rude manager and our experience there.More

We were on vacation in Alaska and required vehicle servicing. We had a 2 hour wait and the garage suggested walking across the street to Yes as we had our little dog with us and could not leave him behind. He said they were pet...friendly. Were they ever! We asked the waitress just to make sure. No problem. They found us a spot on the patio. We really appreciated it. It was a warm June day and we had no vehicle and no place we could go into with a dog. We both had a casear wrap for lunch. Very tasty. Thank you Yes for making us feel so welcome!More

Not impressed but it could have potential. The service was horrible. It took our server over 15 minutes to come to our table after we were initially seated. Instead of greeting us, the first thing that she said was something about a personal health excuse...as to why it took her so long. The place was dead so there was no excuse for poor service. Food was mediocre. Calamari tasted like it was fried in old oil, nacho chips were so stale that I thought I was going to break my teeth. Salad didn’t have enough dressing and we had to flag down our waitress (once she reappeared from the back) to get more, coconut shrimp was so heavy on the shredded coconut that I could hardly tell that there was shrimp under there. The only positives is that the decor was great (especially LOVED the copper sink in the bathroom) and the wine quality and wine glasses were perfect.....the pour could have been a bit more generous.......I believe we only got a 4-5 ounce pour for a $9 glass. And the waitress never returned to ask if we wanted another glass or to check on us about our food.........would def not return :-(More

Stopped in during happy hour, ordered three appetizers. Ahi, totally average, Ray’s Vietnamese is still the best at ahi. Also had their calamari and crab cake. Yikes, I’m still trying to get the smell of the calamari seasoning off my hands. “Out damn spot”...overdone, inside...and out. Calamari is tender and this was tough and rubbery. Too much of the light seasoning. Ugh. The crab cake came as mush inside in three different temperatures ranging from cold to warm. Crab cake should be primarily crabmeat, not a soupy mix.More

Omg the sweet potato ravioli is delicious, you must try. I really loved it. The seafood chowder is very good. The scallops were perfectly cooked, melted in your mouth. The atmosphere is calm and quiet, what a good place for a date night. Our server...is kind and attentive. Our date night was very enjoyable, enjoyed the food and chit chat waiting for our main meal. Seafood risotto is very delicious and my filet mignon perfectly cooked. They brought me a steak knife as a courtesy.More

We are sitting here with quite a few other patrons. No one has received their food. There is food sitting under the hot lamps, but it's not completed. We are leaving since our server told us it was still going to be a while.

Last August, after a very successful fishing day in Seward, we went to the restaurant to see if they could cooked us the piece of halibut we had cut. (We had visited the restaurant the night before and had enjoyed our meal and the service.)...The manager, Ray Urea, accepted to cook the fish for us. He prepared the fish using his own recipe. It was a heavenly meal. Also, he gave us some great advice on how to vacuum pack our fish. Overall,food was great, servers where friendly, and the manager was a kind, caring professional. If you visit Anchorage, you should put this restaurant on your list.More

Some friends joined us for a delicious Sunday brunch where we took advantage of the outdoor seating and the beautiful weather. The music was a tad loud at first but the staff turned it down upon request. My husband and I ordered the delicious McKinley...Wrap and we were both very impressed with quality and quantity of our choice. There is a choice of sides that comes with the wrap, I enjoyed the fruit and my husband says the home fries were excellent. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, timely service and a great value brunch enjoyed in the company of friends.More
