My husband and I went to dinner at Yellowfin's last night. From start to finish, everything was wonderful! We had crab cakes for an appetizer. They appeared overcooked when they arrived but they tasted delicious! I had stuffed haddock-yum! My husband had swordfish. The salads could have had a little less dressing but that is a minor complaint. The service was fantastic! We will definitely return!

We're local to the area and have given this place a number of chances to get better, but it just doesn't happen. We think it's just a lack of care by the owner. He is not friendly or very warm and just doesn't make you feel very welcome. If there's an error that needs to be corrected, he'll argue you with you and make you feel like it's your fault for the poor quality of the filet- go figure?

Three of us went there for the last time a week ago and the bill was 140.00 with no alcohol and it was mediocre at best. There's just too many great restaurants in the greater Portland area to put up with this guy's attitude and pay 140.00 for a chewy filet and escargot with zero presentation or flavor.
Last time for us!

Went with family for our anniversary celebration. Very disappointed as food was undercooked (both planked salmon and the rack of lamb) and very pricey.

White table cloths, highly trained staff, high, high quality food. We arrived with a reservation fur four but needed to add four more people, not a worry due to impeccable management. This establishment offers BYOB, a massive bonus but does not diminish the high end value of the cuisine. This place melds European bistro and New England traditional fare. Food came out attentively and quickly considering a full house. We made modifications due to kids at the table with no issues. Stuffed haddock and seafood pasta were excellent as was chicken parmigiana. The desserts and coffee was a real treat to cap off a fantastic experience in a wonderful setting. This was more than a meal, it was a memorable evening with good friends and family.

This is a dry restaurant, bring you own drinks, glasses are provided and no corking fee is charged. What a quaint, clean, classy restaurant! So pleasantly surprised! The menu offers something for everyone, diverse but not extensive. Our shrimp cocktail was the freshest we have ever had, and we eat a lot of shrimp. My swordfish was cooked perfectly and very well seasoned. It seems we may have to double dip on this restaurant while in Old Orchard. I found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and thank this community for sharing.
