Le Yaca began in a tiny, country village(Courchevel)in the French Alps in 1964.Daniele Bourderau & Gerard decided that it would be fun to open a small restaurant. When friends learned of their plans they told the hopeful restaurateurs that they were crazy to think that people would drive 8 kilometers on a winding, icy road for dinner. Daniele and Gerard hesitated for 3 months and then decided: “yaca le faire,” a contraction of the French phrase “ il n’y a qu’a le faire” which basically means “let’s do it.” They called the restaurant Le Yaca as a gag. But the name caught on with customers, who were amused by the pun and contributed to the restaurant’s lore by inventing “yaca-isms ” of their own: yaca y aller (let’s go). Daniele came to the United States & opened Le Yaca in Williamsburg. Daniel Abid bought le Yaca in 2001. Daniel worked and trained in such prestigious places as “Le Pre Catelan” and “Lenotre” in Paris; “L’Amandier” and “Roger Verge; and to top it all off “Alain Ducasse.”

    We love Le Yaca. The 3 course menus are very well priced and delicious. They were very crowded and the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. Took quite a while for someone to take our drink order and then again quite a wait to take our food order. This has not been our past experience. We will return.

    Probably the best dinner out that I have had in a long time. My mom and I had dinner in the bar and chose from the Bar Bistro menu. Everything was superb - from the attentive wait staff to our menu choices (the Le Saumon and Filet Mignon and for dessert- the decadent Marquise au Chocolat). The ambiance and decor was delightful too. I cannot wait to come back the next time I am in town. Bravo!

    Husband and I decided to come here for dinner due to all the great reviews and the place didn't disappoint. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and seated at our table. Our waitress whose name I can't remember was extremely warm and friendly. For drinks I ordered a virgin mojito since I'm expecting and it was quite refreshing. My husband ordered a Manhattan and he enjoyed it. We ordered off the prix fix menu, but ordered the escargot separately just to try. The escargot was pretty good, but in my opinion a little lite on the salt. For dinner, I had the salmon in lemon butter caper sauce which came with potatoes which were delicious. Again, I thought it was lacking on the salt. My husband had the filet Mignone and lobster tail which he enjoyed. Both entrees came with a choice of soup or salad and both of us had the salad. The dressing on the salad was delicious! For desert I had the crème brûlée with fresh berries which was fantastic and my husband the soufflé which was equally as good. Overall, the whole experience was great and I would definitely recommend.

    A family member recommended this restaurant to us so we can celebrate our anniversary with great food and wine. Gabriel and his staff went above and beyond to make sure that our celebration was wonderful. I ordered the duck which was very flavorful and juicy, my wife ordered the crabcakes which was very tasty and filling. We enjoyed the food so much we asked the staff if they would relay the message to the chef that we very much enjoyed the food. We enjoyed ourselves so very much we made reservations to return to the restaurant with friends next week.

    As longtime patrons of Le Yaca, we routinely invite friends and family to join us. Occasionally we have the opportunity to bring folks for the first time, which was the occasion last night. They commented more than once on how extremely impressed they were with the entire dining experience: from the initial ambiance as they entered, to the attention of the reception team/hostess's, each of the dishes as they came out, and of course the excellent service throughout the evening. They even contacted us this morning to thank us again for everything and the introduction of a new destination in the future when they want to have a wonderful evening. I have a feeling they too will be bringing friends to share the experience.

    Food and service were fantastic, I loved the filet mignon and crab cake 3 course meal option! We only had one issue: it was a very hot day and the AC was not performing that well, we sat closer to the front of the room and it was a little too warm, to the point that we had to leave earlier than we wanted to. We mentioned it to the server and they were aware of the issue and apologized for it. We will definitely go back but we might wait until cooler weather! If you do go on a hot summer day, I recommend trying to get seated closer the the back of the room where it was noticeably cooler.
