Wonderful evening. The relaxed pace and excellent service is worth the wait for delicious food. The owner is very involved in making sure everyone feels welcome and well taken care of.

Based on good reviews, we looked forward to this meal; however, our prompt arrival for our reservation seemed to flummox the two person wait staff. Things went downhill from there. Although there was only one couple on the patio finishing, one couple inside at mid-meal, and a just seated and menu-ed trio next to us, everything moved glacially. When an ounce of what tasted like tomato paste with a dab of old oil and a pinch of exhausted herb finally arrived with bread, I sensed we were in trouble. The two ounces of mushy eggplant for my entree tasted as though it had been taken out of a grocery store jar and left uncovered for 48 hours and the cup of yellow rice lacked any seasoning. Both were almost cold. My husband’s lamb shank might have been ok if it had not been accompanied by a loose soupy, barely warm gravy which rendered the “garlic” mashed potatoes and the whole dish unappetizing. Since I wanted beer and my husband wanted wine, we didn’t order our usual bottle of wine with dinner; mistake! The house Pinot looked and tasted like day old coffee gone bad. By the way, if the watermelon is not spectacular, take the feta and watermelon salad off the menu, if you don’t know how to serve ouzo, don’t, and if you pay so little attention to details that there’s no toilet paper in the ladies room perhaps you should close. We’ve spent lots of time in Mediterranean countries so we know how this food could/should taste. 09/07/2021

The rice was over cooked, mushy and flavorless. Pita bread was burnt. Other than that, the kebabs were good. Eggplant delight was lacking though.

Dia and his team present an absolutely lovely experience. The hummus is heavenly, the pita is fresh and light, their lamb chops are unmatched and served with incredibly fresh spinach and melt-in-your-mouth mashed potatoes. Ask for a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream with the date dessert...simply decadent. The environment is warm and inviting with the team to match. Definitely worth visiting anytime you are in Carmel

Service was extremely spotty. I believe the staff were overworked. It took about an hour for our fairly standard items to be prepared. The chicken dish I had was overcooked and tough.

We enjoyed our meal at YAFA. The owner (I’m assuming) was very friendly. Our dinner took a while to arrive and they forgot my sauvignon blanc, but once we had our dinners, we were quite happy. I had the pan seared salmon in a dill and caper sauce over veggies and my husband had the seafood pasta We ended the evening with a decadent chocolate cake and
Ouzo which were perfect! It’s a small, somewhat noisy place with plastic tablecloths. I would love to see better linens, but everything else was great.

We were disappointed in the food taste - we had been here a couple of years ago and the food seemed much better. Everything we ordered was far from the best we have enjoyed at other Mediterranean restaurants.

The food was excellent and the staff friendly and accommodating. When our waiter noticed that I didn't eat my chicken skewers, the owner came to our table and apologized that they were over cooked. He then insisted on not charging us. Wonderful customer service!

The service was terrible. We waited and waited to get water and it never came. Normally you get drinks before your food but we received our food and didn’t get drinks until we were almost done eating our food. That was after we asked three separate times for water. Then at the end we ask for the bill and I never came after 45 minutes so we ended up walking up to the cash register and ask him to pay then. There was a dog inside the restaurant that would not stop barking.

Food was pretty good… but as a Lebanese, not exactly what I expected. Everything was delicious, though.
We had lamb meatballs in pasta, Kafta kabobs of lamb and beef, and a labneh starter. The labneh starter was the one that threw me off- it was tzadziki flavored labneh!
It was good… but just not what I was expecting. The pasta seemed authentic and hand pulled, and meats were high quality, tasty, perfectly spiced, and the meat was not dry.

To be fair, I've been to Yafa many times and the service is usually excellent. However, I took a new guest there on a Saturday and it took us an HOUR to get drinks and and hour and 15-20 minutes to get food. As there was really no other place to go in Carmel, we were stuck. The food here is always excellent, but the service was atrocious. One server served several other tables before us multiple times. The staff made us feel invisible. Covid has ravaged the service industry and I also feel they did not have enough help. Food was fantastic as always, but you should'nt have to wait an hour and a half for it- especially with a reservation.

Incredibly busy. We booked a reservation online but waited 35 minutes to be seated. Once seated ambiance was lovely. All the staff members were working extremely fast and seemed completely overwhelmed. The pace of food arriving was slow. The food was delicious. It’s a great place but it seems like they need a bigger kitchen & more tables for 2 so seats don’t go vacant while so many people are waiting.

I appreciated the dessert with candle per the birthday mention in the OpenTable notes. Many places forget it. Our table was on large outdoor slat, but the heat lamps were most appreciated. Service was spotty - but probably understaffed due to Covid. Most of our dishes were excellent- get the lamb, shrimp, and cauliflower steak, but skip the octopus. Nice pours for the wine by the glass.
