The place is really gorgeous with all the wood work but my salad was nothing special. The price was high and return here with the intent to order a salad. Even the dressing was nothing special..

Love the food, but I always leave there hungry. I'm not a big eater (175 pound male) But I always leave hungry unless I eat a lot of bread.

This place is incredible. The atmosphere is very peaceful (zen-like peaceful) and the service was excellent. The menu items were different which made the place that much more enjoyable!

I went here and the only thing on the menu which was vegan was a veggie burger, and they couldn't guarantee it wasn't GMO soy. Everything else is loaded with cheese..

This restaurant is a very well-kept secret in which the only problem is if you're looking to have an in-and-out lunch or dinner you can forget about it. Just take your time and suck in the atmosphere and enjoy a fabulous menu.

Stumbled, fortuitously, on Yellow Deli in search of something other than fast food to eat late at night. I was so pleasantly surprised by the ambience when I was greeted at the front patio of this restaurant. Even at 11 o'clock at night I had...More

I would not recommend it. I don't think they have the space and also the food selection for a large family group
