Food was great, my girlfriend and I ordered the chicken for two. Only issue with the chicken was it didn’t come hot enough. Everything else was amazing. The butter, the Boursin, the bread which is my favorite haha. Great experience thank you.

We like Yves. Good ambiance. We had a very nice dinner with our friends. Food and wine are French bistro. I had the oysters and then the muscles and thought both were great. My friend had the spaghetti (I know not very French but prepared in a French way). He really enjoyed it . My wife had the salmon medium and thought it was good and his wife had the chicken and enjoyed it. We had peach sorbet and they had the profiterole . Nice serving of both. My only concern was that we ate inside because it was hot and muggy outside but it seemed like they turned off the air conditioning half way through our dinner and then it became uncomfortable. I would have sat outside had I known they would do that.

Yves has reopened in full force. We ate inside which we prefer to the busier, more energetic outside tables. They have added new items to the menu so now there is something for everyone. The food is well prepared and the drinks are generous.

The key additions as far as I was concerned was the selection of oysters, the snails and the salt infused king crab legs. All were enjoyed by our party.

It is getting to the point where a reservation will be necessary to eat when you want to eat.

Had dinner at Yves on a Tuesday night.. very busy for a Tuesday, but considering the weather was gorgeous the outdoor areas were completely full. We started with frozen Palomas, house made boursin, and the spaghetti. Absolutely Phenomenal! Next we had half a dozen oysters, and and the sea bass. It was incredible. We finished with the Lychee sorbet and it was the perfect ending. My date and I shared all these dishes and were fully satisfied. 10/10 will return another night

Kitchen service was extremely slow to the point that the server refilled our drinks a few times on the house. The food was average. We ordered bone marrow which was nearly $20, but when it came out, we were served with only HALF of the bone. There was barely enough marrow to cover half a slice of roast. So ridiculous. Music was also too loud. And they don’t even have proper wine glasses. Don’t think we will ever go back which is unfortunate because it’s such a cute spot.

The only good thing about this awful #%%@* it came with baguette and partially melted butter, olives, small salad, and a small slice of cheese. The artichoke and oysters were delicious, too.

I ordered the 95 dollar chicken for two (the only thing on the menu that looked very appealing) and it was served bald and nearly undercooked. Not even salt. No crispy skin, rosemary or anything. Just bald, slightly cold chicken.

A wonderful meal of creative French fare. Neighborhood Gem. All other mussel dishes pale in comparison to the ones we had at Yves. Steak Tartare to die for.

As a small venue, it's pretty charming. We started at the fully stocked bar, and moved to our table when ready. Wait staff were attentive when we summoned them, but we were not often asked if anything was needed. I had the veal schnitzel,v which was superb, my companion had a pasta dish. Serving sizes were perfect for us, as we had no need or desire for leftovers. Sometimes plates of pasta area enough for three meals, so I was grateful that I could finish my did without worrying.

Great baguette with an embarrassing small portion of Parisienne ham. So thin and barely enough to cover the bread. Our server was lovely and she gets 5 stars.

Visiting NYC for the Thanksgiving Day weekend and we blindly tried Yves. Could not have been more blown away top to bottom. Including three teenage kids who loved this place. Highly, highly recommended.
