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
Matt is an outstanding waiter to make your evening even more special. Easily one of the very best I have ever worked with at any restaurant I have visited.
Love this place! One of my new favorites. Food is delicious and the service was great!
We had a nice dinner for two. Not a quiet place for sure despitw the speakeasy feel. Happening scene and full on a Wednesday evening. We had tuna tartare which was quite good. The chicken crocettes were reccomended by staff but were unremarkable. Other small plates were steak and a beet salad. The food was well prepared if not pedestrian. I have spent more time in NYC and Philadelphia so Boston tastes are new to me. I would go here again but try different options. Service was ok but inattentive.
Such a festive atmosphere with fabulous food. We loved sharing dish after dish. Great for celebrating special occasions.
Took nearly 30 minutes for cocktails to arrive, generally poor service through the evening. Poor wine list and not well-informed wait staff. Food was fine, nothing special.
It’s a very cool place
Amazing craft cocktails and wine with beautiful artwork. Food is a bit spicy but they cater to those who can’t do it. Authentic G&T, very good!
Absolutely cannot recommend this place too much or too many times.
Service was quick, efficient and pleasant and food was good- we liked everything except one dish and the waiter removed it from the bill. One thing that irked me was getting 3 confirmation emails which i dutifully filled out. One asked about special occasions and allergies- both or which were important. When we got seated it was obvious that the wait staff had no idea about either . Good thing I checked bc one of the dishes would have killed me...and my allergies are pretty unusual.
Overall we really liked the place and it had me reminiscing about my young days at it's previous incarnations. Hope to go back soon.
It was pricey, but we absolutely loved it. Service, food, ambiance, and atmosphere were great. The only thing I recommend is that the staff rate the spice level of the food.
Everything delicious and creative
We have been before and we will go again! It is a cool spot with a great vibe...this time was drinks and apps after a show....great spot for drink, plenty of people (but not crazy crowded). See you soon!
We always love coming to Yvonne's! It's such a fun place to grab drinks with a super cool vibe!
This is such a cool place for tapas and drinks or just drinks! I went on a double date with my best friend and her husband. We enjoyed it very much. It's also an awesome place for pictures.
Great experience, all the food is absolutely fantastic. The ambiance is wonderful
Only thing that bothered me, they charge a “back of house service fee”, which seems like a nice gesture, until you realize its a way for restaurants to shirk their responsibility to pay people. They charge very high prices, it should be covered.
One of the highest ratings I have given a restaurant. The entire evening was a wonderful experience, from the ambiance to the food to the exceptional service. Highly recommended.
Food and service was great. Felt cramped at the table however.
Delicious food, helpful and engaging waiter, and amazing ambiance.
It was my birthday and it was great!! Great service and amazing food.
Definitely a wonderful experience and highly suggest it to anyone who is exploring Boston! You won’t regret your choice if you’re looking for a hipster vibe, delicious food, and creative cocktails!
Very trendy eatery. The portions are small and delicious. Highly recommended.
I had heard alot about Yvonne's and it lived up to expectations. It was a special celebration and the ambiance, decor, food and service was top notch. I kept our destination for dinner a surprise, and as soon as we took the corner and saw the sign, they were so excited! Our evening was made even more special by our waitress who brought over glasses of champagne to help us celebrate - the perfect ending to our memorable night. I can't wait to go back again.
