French
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.”

    My friend came in town to visit so we decided to try this place out for brunch. It was AMAZING. Definitely worth it. It came with an alcoholic beverage so I got the kir royal while my friend opted for just coffee. Next, we got a basket of bread with chocolate croissants. They were warm and fresh out of the oven. So good. Next, we got to choose between a house salad, onion soup or the soup of the day which was potato leek. We both picked potato leek and it was fabulous. Even the croutons were good in the soup. It also had a truffle drizzle which was so good. For my main course, I got lobster tail with spinach and potatoes. My friend got filet mignon with potatoes, spinach and veggies. For dessert, I got the sorbet trio which was passion fruit, raspberry and lemon. My friend got the apple tart. We LOVED everything. Service was excellent but the food was phenomenal. I will definitely be back!

    I love salad. I have eaten a lifetime of salads. The Salade vegeterienne was the most delightful play of crisp and soft, cool and warm, mild and tart. And it was so beautiful I loved it so much. Everything is delicious here. If all flounder tasted like what was on my husband’s plate, the ocean would be empty of flounder. All that said, I go there for the sole. Everytime. Never disappointed. Our server, Theodora, was charming and professional.

    The quality of the food was outstanding and reminiscent of being back in France. The portions were large, well prepared, and high quality. The tables are set far enough apart so that conversations were easy and the ambiance quiet. The decor and architecture are thoughtful, and calm---creating a warm friendly environment. The service team worked together to provide seamless service and accommodating. The meal value was generous. Highly recommended and where we plan to frequent often.

    This was our first time at Le Yaca and we were very impressed with everything. It is restaurant week; all our selections (onion and butternut squash soups, fish of the day, surf & turf, fondant and creme brulee desserts) were exceptional. Gabriel was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu selections. It was a great culinary experience. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

    Fantastic service and a fabulous meal. We went for an early dinner and was amazed. Both of us order Terr & Mer (filet mignon and crab cake) and they were the best we have had in the area (we go out at least once a week to fine dinning). It was so good we are going back next Thursday...

    Cecile and several staff members graciously welcomed us when arriving for my husband's birthday dinner. Le Yaca's fine wine selections are appealing and many are unique. Our food was perfectly prepared, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. Our servers were genuine, professional, and knowledgeable. The ambiance was exactly as we desired: French moderne, with elegant touches. The desserts are excellent. We planned our next visit, as we drove home.

    Dinner and Wine were amazing! I recommend this place to anyone! However, one issue that was very unpleasant is the men's bathroom smelled terrible like the urinals weren't working. It was a stale urea smell and was extremely strong. We went on Tuesday night at 5 pm, so I would assume the restrooms would have been cleaned at this time.

    We went to Sunday Brunch at Le Yaca in Virginia Beach on January 15, 2023. We were celebrating my nieces first pregnancy. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. Whenever our family wants to enjoy a delicious meal, we have something special to celebrate or guests visiting us from out of town, we think of Le Yaca. Everything on the menu is fabulous. The atmosphere is lovely, and the customer service is excellent. I always enjoy sitting in Terry’s section. Le Yaca is by far one of the nicest restaurants in Virginia Beach.

    We had a really nice time! Gabriel our server was top-notch. The 3-course dinner menu is your best value. My wife had the scallops and those were delicious. I ordered the lobster tail with crab cake. The lobster tail was on the premium dinner menu which costs more and had an additional upcharge of $8. It was good but for the price I wouldn't order it again. Overall we had a great time and would plan to go back.

    AmazIng experience. The service is what sets it apart from other restaurants. Food was great but really it’s the service. I don’t have to wait for something I reserved, my food was perfect from temperature to taste. My empty plates were moved with haste and our glasses were never empty and they did it with grace and a smile. A+
