The food and atmosphere was great. The service was just ok, not slow, just felt like we were putting them out with our order....
Food and Ambiance good. Service amongst the worst I have ever experienced
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.
Very cool ambience. Fabulous cocktails and wine. Outstanding service. Will definitely be back next time I visit Boston! Highly recommend!
Consistently good meal. Usually quite bustling but nice and quiet on this Sunday night.
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)...
Matt was a great server, enjoyed the experience, and sharing the small plates
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.
Wonderful meal. Inventive. Bustling atmosphere!
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.
Great food, and service.... INSANE noise level for a Wednesday at 6:30pm. Great for friends dinner, but not for a business or casual-catch-up-over- dinner.
We loved Yvonne’s 😊👍🏻
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.
We went here for my birthday on a busy Saturday night and Michael our waiter was outstanding! He was friendly, super helpful, and attentive. If we could request him again next time we would! As always, the food, drinks, and atmosphere were perfect!
The food was amazing and the staff was very professional. Defiantly good for a special occasion or a date. Defiantly going to be recommending this place to my friends!
Everything was wonderful. Specialty cocktail presentation was awesome!
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!
Our experience began when the uber driver was late and dropped is off in the wrong block. Made a courtesy call at 8:02 that we might run 10 late for our 8pm Friday evening res. A very rude voice said "well if you dont get here within tje 15 minute grace we will give the table away. Arrived with 3 minitea to spare!
After being seated - the table wobbled like a bobblehead and needed to me fixed.
I asked for a quiet table through the app. Now this is a noisy venue but to have the only 2top between 2 aiz tops but he with gaggles of drunk screaming women made hearing my partner impossible. At all!
The food was passable but served randomly. I get it is tapas bit some thought please. Nothing was warmer than room temperature and obviously prepared an mass earlier. The beet salad had virtually no beets other than a couple tiny slivers.
The only highlight was a $38 glass of Rodney Strong Cabernet Savigon which was heavenly despite the spilled pour onto the table. Infact everyone who poured anything spilled some in a rush
No attention to detail - all rush.
Cheap check only $135 with tip and wine
Fun atmosphere! Good food, attentive service , definitely a bar scene on the periphery of one dining area - so lots of energy- will return
Excellent food, amazing ambience and fun times!
This is one of my favorite places to dine in Boston. They have a fun and eclectic cocktail menu, and the surrounding ambiance makes it all the more enjoyable. I'll definitely be coming back here again!
My favorite restaurant in Boston. Great food, cocktails, service, and ambiance. In my book can't do better.
Our server Cassandra was wonderful! The food was perfect and we appreciated the tour of downstairs!
Absolutely amazing! We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday! Lovely and exquisite!! Our server was fantastic! Our new favourite restaurant x
Visited my son who started a new job in Boston. I traveled from Maryland. My husband helped move my son to Boston in June and they ate here. They both loved it and so I took my son there on this visit. The restaurant is a “speak Easy”. A hidden jewel down a little side street. I was amazed at the architectural beauty of this restaurant! Every room is prettier than the next and the food and service are first class. Everyone should experience this restaurant!
Made a late night reservation and was told that I couldn’t sit in the dining room if we weren’t having a full dinner, reallllly wish this information was posted somewhere. Thankfully my group was able to be sat in the lounge. They also missed the birthday note on the reservation.
Highly recommend the Tuna!!
Food is always delicious - service was slow
The food was simply incredible. The menu - and each menu item - is a testament to creativity and culinary adventure. The execution was masterful. This is a restaurant for foodies, epicures, cooks... basically any food lovers. But you may well have to endure (or overlook) some really inexcusable gaffes.
The cocktail menu is clever, but it seemed like the drinks were made by someone who doesn’t realize there’s a reason for actually measuring each ingredient. That heavy-handedness was especially evident when ordering a repeat that tasted notably different... same ingredients but clearly different proportions (and served in a completely different type of glass).
The service was unreasonably bad. Frankly, the inarticulate and seemingly disinterested hostess should have been the warning sign. While our server was friendly and welcoming, she took our orders and then disappeared. We would not see her for another hour. Her disappearance didn’t really matter to us —the food was brought by a parade of different people (each conveying a level of happy-to-be-here that you’d expect from an indentured worker) and that drink “refill” order was taken by some guy in a suit. The food, however, was superb.
At some point after plates had been cleared, another guy in a suit appeared (unprompted) offering a convoluted apology for why one of our dishes had not made it to the table... followed by a cameo appearance from our waitress who shrugged her shoulders while saying something about a mixup.
The place itself is cool — although more a caricature of “cool”... which makes for an energetic and entertaining spot. The food is remarkable, but sadly undermined by the junior varsity level of service. We’ll certainly try again... maybe it was just an anomaly. Maybe.
Great place. Great atmosphere. Tuna was off the hook good.
Wow!!! What an experience! This is a very energetic wonderful restaurant. The decor is fabulous. The service was amazing and the food was exceptional. Love all the original cocktails. Definitely on my list to go back when I'm back in town.
Worst experience of my life rude manager Bruno and waitress
The menu is outstanding and the ambiance is incredible!
It is kind of dark and table was really small. Other than that service and food was good.
A really cool vibe and atmosphere. Food is tapas style and allows for lots of variety at one sitting. Service was attentive and very helpful with choices.
We had a great night? Food was spectacular but one dish was extremely undercooked, it was pork with kimchee rice, had it in the past, we sent it back, it came back out still raw. The waitress told us “that’s the way we cook it” with a real attitude. Up until then she was great, but that put a bad taste in my mouth. Previously we were there and our server made the night!! It’s a great place with delicious food, but waitstaff can make or break the evening. Drinks were amazing on a very positive note
