Service was inconsistent and we had to ask for the check multiple times. Server never asked if we liked the food or if we needed anything (we needed salt). I would not recommend.

Food was excellent, the frisée and Lardon salad was on point. The French cafe music was just the right level. Waitstaff was attentive and manager was friendly. Great seat by the window. Perfect neighborhood French bistro.

Cramped tables. So close that the woman’s hair from next table kept falling into my drink. French onion soup looked as if someone picked off all the cheese before it came to me. Took three asks to get water. The lag between ordering a drink and getting the drink was about 15 minutes.

Not the best experience. Very packed restaurant and our table was so close to a birthday party that a woman sitting at the end of that table was able to flick her hair onto our table repeatedly. We ended up having to go outside to the outdoor seating area.

Don't bother going unless you want to eat outside. We made reservations for an inside table but were told nothing was available inside. They were polite and pleasant but turned aside our objections. So we sat outside even though we were not properly dressed for it. We ate outside and looked through the window at a few empty tables inside that were never occupied during the entire time we ate. I don't know what their game was, but it made us unhappy. The cold weather is coming so we will not return until next May or June. Too bad, because the food is good.

I brought a party for brunch and we didn't get served drinks for an entire hour then they messed up our order 5 times over. They didn't do anything to accommodate. It was awful and really disappointing. I felt like I was being punked. Would love to give this place another chance but i'm extremely disappointed.

Food was good - overpriced for a more simple brunch menu. Would recommend the burger, fries were amazing too. Service could have been a lot better, we had to ask a few times for plates/glasses/etc. and it was hard to get anyone’s attention. Overall good food/slow service, probably wouldn’t go back

Overall I was disappointed. First and foremost not one employee in the Restaurant had on a mask. Not even the servers. It took 3 requests to have another glass of wine. While the steak was fantastic, the $42 chicken was just okay and came to the table almost room temp.
This has the bones to be a nice restaurant but for the prices, lack of excellent service, and no respect for COVID safety measure we won’t be back.

Food was great, my girlfriend and I ordered the chicken for two. Only issue with the chicken was it didn’t come hot enough. Everything else was amazing. The butter, the Boursin, the bread which is my favorite haha. Great experience thank you.

One of my favorite restaurants in the city. From the staff to the food to the atmosphere and location, it is the perfect spot for a date or casual drinks. I’ve had almost everything on the menu and can honestly say everything is amazing. Always enjoy coming back and excited to go back again soon!

We like Yves. Good ambiance. We had a very nice dinner with our friends. Food and wine are French bistro. I had the oysters and then the muscles and thought both were great. My friend had the spaghetti (I know not very French but prepared in a French way). He really enjoyed it . My wife had the salmon medium and thought it was good and his wife had the chicken and enjoyed it. We had peach sorbet and they had the profiterole . Nice serving of both. My only concern was that we ate inside because it was hot and muggy outside but it seemed like they turned off the air conditioning half way through our dinner and then it became uncomfortable. I would have sat outside had I known they would do that.

Yves has reopened in full force. We ate inside which we prefer to the busier, more energetic outside tables. They have added new items to the menu so now there is something for everyone. The food is well prepared and the drinks are generous.

The key additions as far as I was concerned was the selection of oysters, the snails and the salt infused king crab legs. All were enjoyed by our party.

It is getting to the point where a reservation will be necessary to eat when you want to eat.

Had dinner at Yves on a Tuesday night.. very busy for a Tuesday, but considering the weather was gorgeous the outdoor areas were completely full. We started with frozen Palomas, house made boursin, and the spaghetti. Absolutely Phenomenal! Next we had half a dozen oysters, and and the sea bass. It was incredible. We finished with the Lychee sorbet and it was the perfect ending. My date and I shared all these dishes and were fully satisfied. 10/10 will return another night

Kitchen service was extremely slow to the point that the server refilled our drinks a few times on the house. The food was average. We ordered bone marrow which was nearly $20, but when it came out, we were served with only HALF of the bone. There was barely enough marrow to cover half a slice of roast. So ridiculous. Music was also too loud. And they don’t even have proper wine glasses. Don’t think we will ever go back which is unfortunate because it’s such a cute spot.
