As I wrote here What efforts has Yelp made to educate the public on its review ranking algorithm? and On Yelp, why aren't reviews that receive the most votes near the top? Does Yelp have a competitor that does do this? Could Quora eventually compete?, Yelp sort does take into account number of votes in their default sorting algorithm.

Precise sentence from Yelp confirming this:

The order is determined by recency, user voting, and other review quality factors.
