Yvonne’s is my new favorite Boston restaurant. The space is unique and comfortable but with a wow factor.

The small plates menu is very well balanced with meat, cheese, vegan options. Our party of four ordered 10 plates and each was uniquely seasoned, spectacular in taste and presentation.

“Holly” our waitress was a fount of knowledge about the menu but also Locke Ober, the men’s club previously in the space for a very long time. We all enjoyed learning about the interiors and renovations.

Don’t change a thing!

We have been wanting to go to Yvonne’s for a while and it just never seems to happen. I have to say it was worth the wait. The menu has lots of short plates and we had many. Every single item we had was delicious. Don’t miss the fritters! Just an incredible experience. Our server wasn’t the best but she has lots of other staff helping and they were all great. For the “feast” we had the brisket which was totally worth the wait. Can’t wait to go back and try the few dishes we didn’t eat. Can’t say enough great things about this place

One bartender let my wife sit there for 7-8 mins without asking her if she wanted anything... Paige the other bartender was good and we’re glad she was there. Our service at the table was very good, would just avoid that one bartender (sorry, didn’t get a name)

We're big fans of Yvonne's, and while we don't go as often as we'd like, when we go our experience is excellent.

We went because it was our anniversary, and our server helped make it even more special. He recommended drinks and other menu items, took pictures for us, let my wife try a drink to be sure it was what she expected. Great service!

Our reservation was early, so it wasn't super busy, and relatively quiet. Seemed like a good time to go if you wanted a reasonable noice level. Dinner on a Thursday - Saturday can be quite noisy.

For new visitors, think of it as mostly small plates for sharing. Well seasoned, good quality. We loved the lamb, the beef tartar, and potato snacks (the menu name escapes me). The desserts didn't measure up to the rest of the menu, and were just ok.

We spent about $100pp and felt like it was good value for a special occasion.

I came here with my boyfriend for our anniversary dinner. Yvonne’s really went above and beyond! I had indicated that it was our anniversary on opentable and take gave us some complimentary champagne to start off the night. The food and drinks were amazing and the service was great as well!

I have only been to Yvonne's once and I tried to return just a week later but they were already booked! The food has a lot of flavors and came out as it was ready -- I highly recommend the hummus and shrimp!

We were really enjoying our evening at the bar, the drinks were great and the ambiance was perfect. But once we were brought to our dinner table the night changed. Our host escorted us past several open tables in the main dining area through a clandestine passageway into a completely different part of the Yvonne's that I was not expecting. Although intrigued at first by the completely different decor, the dark space and thumping techno music just wasn't for me. It was too loud and too club-like for what we had in mind. Given how different the two sections are, I wish the host, the website or someone gave us a choice of seating space in advance. The food was great. Not rushing to go back.

We have been making Yvonne's a tradition to begin our evening's prior to the opening night at the Boston Ballet and have to say that the menu changes are wonderful - always great to change things up! The food is, as always, creative and delicious! The cocktails are fabulous and the wine list is excellent! We love Yvonne's and look forward to our next evening there!!

I love the food and ambiance at Yvonne's, which is why I keep coming back! I know they get busy on weekends, but I wish the waiters wouldn't rush the food out quite so fast. It can feel like quick table turnover is being prioritized over dining experience.

Amazing meal at Yvonnes! We had our first date here over a year ago and on this visit they somehow managed to seat us at the same table. Yvonnes remains one of our favorite restaurants in Boston. Incredible food and ambiance.

BAMM! Another great meal and dining experience... the staff is A-plus as is the food. Viper CHOP..yummy. Tater tots... so good and a reminder of childhood. Just a great time all around ... if I had to change one thing it would be the new martini glasses (get back to traditional)...

We loved it. The decor and overall ambiance were perfect. We had an early dinner before a concert at the Orpheum Theater but it didn't feel early. We sat at a good sized table in the library among the books and cool artwork. The lighting is dim and comfortable and plenty of room at the table. Atmosphere was loud but not too loud--I felt like we could talk without being overheard and vice versa. They offer some really fun drinks. I ordered one that was spiced up for the holidays. Delicious, a little pricey, but justified for a night out in Boston. We ordered several small plates and snacks. Everything was delicious. Easy walk to the concert afterward. Highly recommend!

The room is elaborately decorated and evokes a speakeasy vibe. Service was attentive and friendly. That's it. The food was assertively mediocre. Not going back for food, but perhaps for drinks.

Food was fantastic at Yvonne’s but the ambiance was sub-par. Very noisy Restuarant, more like a club than a place for a romantic dinner.

Food was outstanding.

The ambiance was excellent and the food wonderful! Loved the tuna. The only complaint I have is the slow service that night. No menus, no water and no attention until we had to (friendly) ask for attention three times until one of the waitresses actually attended to our table.

First time at Yvonne’s for a date. Great experience overall, we grabbed drinks at the bar and were seated per reservation once the time came. The service was good and the drinks and food were outstanding. Will come back!
