Food was excellent. We think Le Yaca holds its own against many of the great restaurants in New York and Baltimore and it has gotten better over the years.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe perfect lunch!As always, we had a lovely lunch and good service in a relaxed and quiet atmosphere that is perfect for conversation.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellentExcellent food, service, and wine.

The service is impeccable and the three course lunch is always delicious ,healthy, and memorable.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at La YacaLa Yaca's atmosphere is romantic with the separate dining areas clustered throughout. Their dining chairs are so comfortable, and the fresh wild flowers were a lovely touch to the evening's elegant dining experience. Our waiter couldn't have made our evening more special. You will NOT be disappointed with the chef's masterpieces. We shared escargot, and the butter-pesto-garlic sauce was perfect for dipping the extraordinary french bread into. The chilled watermelon-cantalope soup was so refreshing, the beef medallion and shelled lobster tail were cooked to perfection, and I loved the light lemon mousse with fresh berries and raspberry sauce. Thanks for a truly unforgettable evening.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Sunday BrunchWe had a special occasion and our son gave us a gift certificate for Le Yaca because he knows that we enjoy dining there. We arrived just as a group of 70 were assembling for a birthday party. We and others were seated in smaller rooms. The food and service were not impacted by the large group. Many restaurants that would have been a disaster, but not Le Yaca. We always enjoy our visits there.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMost of the dishes were excellentMost of the dishes were excellent (fish, duck, crab cake); the others just very good (scallops, oysters, salmon appetizer; Grand Marnier souffle).6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone will love....This restaurant was truely amazing.

I recommend this to anyone!!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food but priceyI've only been here a couple of times and had fanatstic meals each time.

We had fresh fish that cooked to perfection, and a steak that was delicious. You won't be disappointed here!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatThe suggested lunch courses are always great with the suggested wine pairings.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGem in Williamsburg, VAMy husband & I went on a weekend getaway to Williamsburg and we were fortunate enough to find this lovely French restaurant. The design of the restaurant is classic and inviting. We had a choice to order a la carte or from a pre-fixe menu, and we chose pre-fixe for price & selection. My husband had the beef tenderloin which he loved. I had the grilled flounder which was prepared excellently. For dessert, we both ordered the grand mariner soufflé. There is a slight upcharge from the pre-fixe menu, but it is worth it. It is served with a side of crème anglaise and fresh raspberry sorbet. I wish I had some right now! During the meal the owner visited tables and spoke to everyone. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful diningWe had a wonderful dining experience at LeYaca. The french onion soup is outstanding - not the usual drowning in cheese mess! The crepe appetizer - delicious with wonderful balance of flavors. Don't miss this Williamsburg gem tucked in a shopping center.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodwe celebrated our anniversary here. It was a very nice experience and we will definitely return.

Thank you, Le Yaca.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great FindWe found this gem on our last visit to Williamsburg and make it a point to stop for dinner every time we are in the area. The food never disappoints and the services is always excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMmain couse was good but we expectedWe expected more, but the woman owner greeted every table and provided a personal experience for every patron. The main course was really good but the appetizers' were a bit disappointing. Foie Gras was tasty but a bit too fatty. And the crab crepe was overpowered by cheese. The champagne recommendation was great. The main course fillet was flavorful and cooked perfectly. All in all, a good meal but for the price, could have been better.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOff in a quiet shipping mallOff in a quiet shipping mall this was a complete surprise.

Service was much better this time than at our firs visit.
Food is always excellent. The wine list is adequate but more variety for glass of wine would be nice.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWish it were closer to home - DCA special reunion with dear, old friends was made even more special by the excellent service. The atmosphere was food for the weary traveler (me)'s spirit - it both elegant yet relaxed. The food was beautifully presented and prepared -- creative but accessibly in composition. The ingredients told their tale of freshness and encouraging one to think that health was as much an outcome as delight. I wish that there was a Le Yaca here so that I might dine there weekly. A plethora of restaurants in the DC area - but alas, I must return to Williamsburg to find such an experience.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLe Yaca dining experienceI would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a romantic evening!

The quality of food and service is always outstanding, and the atmosphere is elegant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice Mothers Day lunchWe sat in the back room which was fairly noisy but not so that we couldn't talk to each other. The restaurant was busy, the waitstaff was patient with our table. The food was fantastic - they had a set menu for Mother's Day which made it easy for us to pick. The French onion soup, asparagus soup (in season), halibut, and steak were all big hits at our table!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMcelebrationWe went for Mother's Day and were treated like old friends.
Good service and great food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench CharmerWe chose this restaurant for a special occasion sight unseen based upon user comments. We were not disappointed.

Definitely would recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDessert was awesome, but,,,I ordered seafood and the shrimp smelled like it smelled like it was saturated with bleach. It smelled pretty bad. I don't recommend anyone to order seafood.
The best part was dessert. All the dessert we ordered (total of 8)were all good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesWe always stop in when in Williamsburg. The owner is friendly, personable, gave us great wine recommendations( as usual). Has maintained high standards and consistancy over years. We'll be back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food. Classic FrenchAwesome food. Classic French winners like the baquette, union soup and escargots were fabulous. Everything else was simply very good except for the sole. A little rubbery, where these need to be very fresh. Location is wierd, but we were told they will move soon. Hopefully they find a place closer to old town, so you can scrawl a little after dinner...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming restaurantLe Yaca is a lovely restaurant with delicious food. Everything on the menu is wonderful. It's a great place to celebrate a special occasion. The ambiance is elegant, marred only by the inappropriate attire of guests wearing T-shirts and jeans.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ExcellentOver the years we have eaten here many times a year. We went here 10 years ago for a surprise birthday party for my mom. This year it was for an early mother's day dinner. It is always perfect. The food, the service, the whole package. We always know dining at Le Yaca will be a memorable and enjoyable experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt would have been nice ifIt would have been nice if the Hostess would have greeted us with a smile and a welcome. Maybe she was just having a Bad day. The food was great as usual. Nobody knew anything about their wines and selection by the glass was lacking. We had noted it was an Anniversary on your notes,but they did not bring it up. This restaurant has been great for many years,but I am afriaid the ownership maybe are getting"tired".5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistenly SpectacularMy fiance and I dined at Williamsburg's lovely Le Yaca restaurant for the fourth time this past week and, once again, it exceeded our already high expectations. It is one of our top three favorites, across the country. We're already looking forward to the next experience!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
