Sorry, I would not recommend this place. We arrived for a 6 pm Sunday reservation to an almost empty restaurant and yet it took over 1.5 hours to get our main course. There were out of two appetizers, didn't have the wine we chose, and the music was so loud we had to lean in to hear each other (despite having asked them to turn it down). Sadly, once the food finally came, it was lukewarm and not great. No need to repeat this experience.

Fantastic restaurant. The chef really knows what he/she is doing. Very nuanced meal. I ordered the pistachio encrusted salmon and was thrilled with it. It's a wonderful venue that's been on my radar for a while. The only drawbacks are that it was a bit hot, the evening sun was blazing into the restaurant, and noise level was high for the number of people enjoying the early evening there. Otherwise the service was wonderful.

It was a disappointing experience at Yves. Overall, they have a problem executing the food and portions are too small for the price. The server was not particularly accommodating when a complaint was brought to his attention. We began with a half-dozen oysters that arrived at room temperature--bear in mind that the room was quite warm on a summer night with all the windows open--probably over 80 degrees. They were so unappetizing that we declined to eat half of them. Instead of being plated on a bed of ice, they were set up salt--which is more suitable to cooked oysters. We suspect they'd been opened far in advance or sat out in the hot kitchen. We pointed out to the server that raw oysters should be served quite cold and his response was "I'll just get them out of the way" . A charge for $21 for 6 oysters remained on the bill ($3+ per piece!!) As present and former hospitality employees ourselves, we know that this is usually the point where a comp is offered--maybe a glass of wine or a shared dessert--but there was nothing. The cheese Gougères were twice the normal size--not necessarily a bad thing--but they were floppy and deflated with hot and cold spots, which suggests a hasty reheating and not freshly made. The "marinated seasonal vegetables" were pretty ordinary and included an out-of-season asparagus tucked among the big chunks of summer squash. The fish portions seemed pretty meager for the $31 price tag and were pretty forgettable. We declined to order dessert (the offerings were uninspired). We had to vigorously wave down the server to get the bill. With no adjustment for the poorly executed oysters and the uninterested service, our usual 20% tip didn't feel justified. For the first time in years, we left only 15%. Yves doesn't need to worry about our return--though we live 2 blocks away.

Food was good. We ordered oysters which were totally overpriced for what they were. Other than that we ordered a salad and a burger and they were both really good.
You will definitely need to have patience as the service is slow, we went on Friday for dinner and even though it didn’t look too busy it took them a lot of time to bring food and just take the order.

Yves used to be excellent. But something has changed. Serve isn’t great, the food takes a very long time (even when you are the only customer) and the portions have definitely gotten smaller over time perhaps to cut costs.

Brunch was no fun to slow my friend could not eat cream with his eggs it was a fuss to get just two fried eggs.

They was only two vegan plate and the leeks where not cooked !

The size of the portions are ridiculous for the price !

They kindly offer me a glass of wine because we had to wait so long !

I hate brunch is NY just an excuse for bad menu and service !

You really want this place to work. It’s a lovey, cozy spot and would make the perfect neighborhood go-to. But the weekend brunch menu is way too sophisticated and complex (escargot, beef tongue, duck confit hacks).
It really needs to be simplified, with some staple dishes.

A cozy and elegant French restaurant. We were greeted warmly by the bar tender, which was a good start, then a pretty and efficient server named Diana took care of us. I loved the Branzino and what came with it (crushed hazelnuts, lemons, asparagus), but found the pistachio-crusted Salmon a bit dry. I highly recommend the Branzino, which I would like to eat again soon! Just a note that it is only served at dinner time.

The portions are smaller than usual. Not surprising as this is the “French” way.

The only negative is that there was a group of around 10 to 12 people dining, and they were very loud and noisy. That was about timing - we could have had a quieter dinner if it had been another time.

Went for dinner. Delicious steak, chicken, side dishes. Salads were fresh and tasty. Lemon cake was a surprise hit--paired well with a perfect, strong shot of espresso. Lively atmosphere, but we were able to talk/hear each other. I loved the decor: white brick, wood shutters, retro chic light fixtures. Low key, casual french chic. Service friendly and stylish. Waiters in black turtle necks and little white chef coats. My new go-to place in the neighborhood. Great for a date or small group.

The food was less than stellar considering the price - ordered the baked eggs and had to send back because they weren't actually baked. It's a cute restaurant and service was nice but the food wasn't worth the price.

No one came to get a drink order. It was challenging to get attention when needed. Love the spot. But felt the service (coordination assuring the patrons needs are met) could’ve been better. Lastly, and in support of the staff, one of our party is difficult. Our waiter handled that and all else well.

Yves is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC! The food is outstanding and everyone who works there is kind and attentive. Chef Alex and her team put so much love and care into their dishes. It’s cozy and intimate, and quiet enough that you can hear your dining companions. It’s great for a weeknight date night or a special occasion - we celebrated a family milestone birthday at Yves and would 100% do so again.
