Diner Reviews
  • "Great place. Quiet and the waiter the name i can't recall was the nicest friendliest and very knowledgable and accomodating. I will definitely go back and will recommend to my friends and relatives as well. The only thing they could do better by cleaning or updated upholstery on their couches."

  • "Yves is always great, very crowded. The linguini and Tilipia were both excellent. The waiter attentive at first, was non-existent thereafter. The place was busy, but to be ignored was not cool. We tracked down other waiters to get us more water and lemons."

  • "Over the years we have had good times and bad times at Yves. Once we had The Hostess From Hell and another time The Waitress From Hell (and these experiences convinced us that the then-manager hadn't a clue what was going on under his nose). Lately Yves has been looking up. Except for the fact the waiter kept noodging us to order although we told him we were in no hurry and wanted to enjoy our drinks first, the service was polished and professional and our main courses were first-rate (the souffles we ordered for dessert were a little disappointng). We appreciated the fact that the current menu is so large and varied. Certainly, if you go there you'll have a fine time."

  • "Not at all as represented by the website. Families with the dad wearing shorts and flip flops. Loud and not very clean. The service is very good and bar is more fun but overall feels a little yucky."

  • "Food is outstanding, the atmosphere peaceful and the wait staff courteous, smiling and extremely helpful and attentive. Owner spent time at our table in lighthearted conversation and cared about our dining experience and was warm and friendly. This restaurant is in my top three of all time. Their souffle was the perfect final touch."

  • "I made reservations two weeks out for our dinner at what was listed as a romantic spot. I said in my reservation we were celebrating our anniversary. We arrived and the restaurant was not yet busy. We were given a choice of two tables and chose one in the corner near the patio. After we had placed our order for dinner they seated a party of 12 women celebrating a birthday right next to us. They could have told us there was going to be a large party coming in and we might like to sit elsewhere? Gone was any conversation and any service. Never checked to see if our food was good. It was average. We had to ask for a dessert menu and got wrong order along with cold coffee without any cream or sugar. Overall a very disappointing visit. "

  • "You'll want to stick around and linger in this place! The food was great, the service was super friendly and very attentive. Big comfy chairs to lounge and enjoy your wine in. It's all very relaxing and you'll find yourself not wanting to rush anything about it. And that's just what we did! Our group of 8 stayed, (unknowling) until after closing, and the staff didn't say a word, they just let us enjoy it and linger! We'll be back!!"

  • "We enjoy a relaxing evening of sharing small plates and a craft beer followed by sharing a dessert and coffee. Excellent selection for a wide variety of tastes. Also, salads and entrees also are excellent and we have dined on these in the past. The service this time was very good and much better than in the past. The noise level is usually annoying as there is always a large table of people who shout to carry on a conversation with everyone else at their table. Otherwise, Yves is a nice place and one that we frequent often and for over 20 years."

  • "seared Ahi was overcooked and a bit pricey for the amount on the plate. Everything else was fine...nice atmosphere. We were well taken care of. We will definitely go back, but the Ahi was a bit disappointing and will not order again."

  • "Yves' Restaurant & Wine Bar has been around for a while. I have been a patron of this establishment for a long time; when it was Yves' Bistro. Always an enjoyable dining experience and Yves himself makes a point to visit each guest. "

  • "We had a late 915 dinner, great 2 piece acoustic set to enjoy and took the waiters suggestions for apps dinner and the dessert...great value and closer to home than Antonello's, easy to miss this little gem's but worth checking out. ~Enjoy"

  • "Small portions, you may leave still hungry. Had the Chilean Sea Bass served with small side of rice. 2 appetizers and Cesar salad & apple tart dessert-all extra & small portions again. Stingy on the bread, only bringing 2 small pieces at a time. "

  • "Don't be discouarged by outside of restaurant which looks very small. There are 2 dining rooms, a small bar and a quaint living room style area which you can also eat / drink at. Later in the evening they also have music. Food was delicious. I had grilled stalls and prawns over mushroom risotto with asparagus and a few baby carrots. We bought our own wine which had a $15.00 corkage fee. For Deseret we shared the chocolate espresso creme burelle. Perfect. Highly recommend - can't wait to go back."

  • "My wife and I had a reservation, made through Open Table for 7:00 p.m.. We arrived on time and were seated immediately, at a table across from a table of nine people. Due to the size of the room there is no where to escape from a group this size in Yves, which is just the luck of the draw an a Wednesday evening. While the noise level was intrusive as we celebrated our anniversary, the food and service were excellent. In fact I would rate my steak dinner and my wife, who had salmon, exceptionally good. The service was attentive, coffee and desert were very good, with a nice selection of items to choose from on the menu. The large group left about 1/2 way through our meal and dinner returned to a most enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Had a good beer, shared 4 small plates and dessert with coffee. Sometimes we have full meals, other times share as this week. Both offer a large variiety of choices, all prepared excellently. Service is attentive, but allows for leisurely dining. We tend to avoid Friday and Saturday as it can get very noisy due to large groups. They are open late on Thursday and it is quiet."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Our group of four had a very nice dinner at Yves last weekend. There were a couple of large parties but our service was still wonderful and the staff attentive. The food was delicious and wine list was very good. Leave room for the soufflé dessert -- excellent!! The restaurant ambiance is comfortable."

  • "I consider Yves in Anaheim Hills a rare gem. This outstanding restaurant is noteworthy for it's fine food and service. Our dinner tonight was flawless and superb. Service by David was outstanding. A true pro, who was extremely knowledgeable about the menu items and his recommendations were 'spot on'. No question in my mind to request him again. Everything was so well done. The Penne Vodka was to die for and the Linguini with clams fresh and seasoned just right. Run, don't walk to this Anaheim Hills treasure."

  • "Visiting relatives for a special occasion here. A great change of pace from the corporate restaurants all over the area. A huge menu with lots of choices, some very creative and unique and some quite traditional. Great salads and desserts. Gets pricey - this puts it into a category where I have some places I'd rather go in Laguna or Newport Beach, but for this area its really hard to beat. Nice they didn't charge us a corkage fee. This is in that category of really good but not amazing. For sure there is something on the menu for everyone."

  • "WE took our 102 Mother there on Friday night, We had never experienced a weekend crowd there like it was. However, the food, ambiance and the host, Yves, topped the entire evening with an excellent experience. We will be back, and it is indeed a hidden gem for those who are unaware of where it is. The patio dining is always our favorite. There was a lively jazz band there as well as bar activity to match. We had the scallops and the pork tenderloin. Fabulous!!!!"

  • "Another great time with my daughters in town - this venue is one of their favorites over the years and we always end our family visits with Yve's fabulous chocolate raspberry soufflé! The quiet atmosphere, superb service, and extremely flexible hours allow for our lively conversation and for sharing warm memories together. Yve's varied menu appeals to both my vegetarian and meat loving family members - often, the enticing appetizers are just as tempting as their hearty entrees, which allows everyone to find something great to devour. The cozy bar area is truly built for both comfort and conversation - and gives me many special memories to treasure until we are together again."

  • "What a beautiful Christmas Eve dinner we had at Yve's Bistrot. Yve is the consummate host, and this carries over to his excellent staff. Our dinner was superb.......the service impeccable......and the price very reasonable. The evening could not have been better. We'll certainly be back very soon."

  • "Yves is just a delightful place for a casual dinner for two or a special occasion. Food, wine and service are always top notch, but still warm, friendly and personal. We had our pre-wedding party at Yves. The bar area with comfy sofas and chairs was a wonderful gathering place for about 20 friends and family who traveled cross country to get together, mingle and catch up. Yves and his staff were friendly, helpful and happily went out of their way. Just a great place, period !"
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "The food and wine were delicious, as always. However there was a large party that was so noisy we had to ell to each other across the table to carry on a conversation. There were about 18 or 20 of they and while they had a grand time - we did and could not wait to get out. I will check on that before I reserve again. Lunch is ALWAYS wonderful and relaxing."

  • "Waiter was great. Restaurant allowed the 3 of us to sit leisurely and chit chat. Most restaurants are not as flexible and customer oriented in that way. It probably helped that it was lunch."

  • "Because it is family owned and run you can tell that they take pride in what they do and how they want to present themselves to the community. They have a spirtit of letting you know that you are important to them and that they will listen to you."

  • "This was our second time to Yves. Our first time was great, but this time, we were seated next to a large party. There were a few guests from that party that arrived throughout the course of 2-3 hours and were obviously heavily intoxicated, yet they continuously had alcoholic beverages in their hands the whole time they were here. Several of the gentlemen shouted through the entire patio seating disrupting every table's conversations. This was evident by nearly every table stopping their conversations to look at the large party and unruly guests. Unfortunately, none of the management or staff spoke a word to the guests. We would re-consider dining there again if we saw just a rowdy table upon arriving at your restaurant."

  • "Yves Bistro has been a neighborhood favorite for decades. The memu has remained consistent with many proven entrees. Has a pleasant ambiance and is reliable for both dinner and lunch. Recently upgraded the entryway creating a 'wine bar' atmosphere. Staff is always friendly,"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "The food is always good at Yves but the service is TERRIBLE. There were probably only a total of 5 tables that were occupied and only 1 had a large group that by the time we arrived was nearly finished eating. So we were talking maybe 5 tables of 2 or 3 (our party had 3) and we only ordered salads and it took 50 minutes to get our meal. As we had tickets for a play (and we told the server) we allowed ourselves 90 minutes for lunch and more than half was wasted on waiting. I had to continually ask for refill on my ice tea and waited FOREVER for the bus boy to bring me sugar. It is really too bad the service is so bad because the food and ambiance is good."

  • "Went to Yves for lunch and the food was great. I want to go back for date night with my hubby and try some of the wines. I also heard that they have wine tasting once a month, definitely have to attend this event! I had the Brie appetizer, Artichoke soup, and a Lasagna roll up pasta(cannot remember the name). All of my choices were EXCELLENT! The pasta portion could have been bigger(only had two pasta rolls) but the quality was awesome! Can't wait togo back!"
