Yvonne’s was amazing! My husband and I are both chefs and came here to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Our server was incredible from the start. So knowledgeable and welcoming. The cocktails were insanely good and elegant. The food was also amazing! We had the croquettes, octopus, halloumi, lamb ribs, and the sujuk pita. They were all exceptional. It was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long time. Recommend it to everyone!

Very cool spot. A redone classic supper club with a very cool new look. Food is creative and excellent. Small plates are perfect for sharing. the bar areas are open and inviting, great for a few drinks and snacks. Will return the next time in Boston.

Don't go there if you want a quiet conversation! The sound is very high. Go there for fun evenings with friends and delicious food.

Yvonne’s is like a secret speakeasy! It is thrilling, from the moment you walk through the fake barbershop into the elaborate library bar and dining room with chandeliers and fancy chairs. The atmosphere is chic and sexy, and the food and cocktails are outstanding. It was so much fun for our fancy girl’s night out!

A Speakeasy in Downtown Boston - this place is cool, fun, vibrant and the food was awesome! Our server was very helpful pointing out items (due to a shellfish allergy) that we could not order and in guiding to have enough food but not too much. Everything tasted as good as looked which isn't easy because the presentation was just as awesome as the food. Yes, we will be back!

I am afraid that the very good food was ruined for us by the volume of the restaurant. This is the loudest place I have ever eaten. Anyone carrying on a conversation was yelling at high volume to compete with the other folks and the very loud and energetic music being played over the system. I am aware that some folks like this atmosphere and if you are one of them, I do recommend Yvonne's because it is a beautiful place and the food is excellent. If you don't like loud dining establishments, stay away.

We’ve been here before and this was a very different, and disappointing experience. Service was miserable, with inexperienced and inattentive waitress. Wine portions ridiculously skimpy for the price. Food was mostly interesting, but descriptions not very good relative to what you get. For example, Kale salad Very Spicy (consider avoiding). To top it off, they forgot the special desert we ordered in honor of my husband’s birthday. Not a place to do a special occasion. I like the food but not sure we’ll go back.

Full disclosure up front: we own several restaurants and bars. That being said, we tend to look at operations from both the operator and customer viewpoint, and that’s often hard to do.

Yvonne’s gets the brass ring. We felt welcomed and welcome during our two hour stay. Sampled 7 or 8 of the very interesting plates on the menu and were impressed. Great presentation and a really good variety of different taste experiences.

Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Very professional and an asset to the great staff there.

Thanks, Yvonne’s for a very enjoyable, seamless evening. Your success is well earned.

Hands down, my favorite dinner spot in Boston. The food is inventive and delicious. My date leans towards plain, American or Italian food. While the menu strikes us as “inventive” as soon as the food arrives it becomes new favorites....the chicken meatballs are out of this world. Lamb ribs were finger licking good. The menu nod to the 100+ year old original bar Locke Obers...oysters savanah are great. As soon as we saw the group dinner sized beef dish pass our table, I texted friends to join us to try that and the Baked Alaska on our next visit.
Service was spot on. They nail the best aspects of formal service while taking the attitude down to casual, not overly friendly.
The dining room is stunning, warm, polished and elegant. How they kept so many original features of a Victorian German Restaurant yet make it feel so modern....magic.
Don’t be put off by the unusual entry or the casual youthful vibe...this is serious grown up food and service.

Arrived @ 7:30 when reservations were at 9:00 hoping to get an earlier seat, just hung out at the bar and had a few very good cocktails. Not a word or an acknowledgement from the host/hostess so at 8:45 I checked in with them and was told “we’ll do our best to seat you at 9:00”. About 9:10 we went to the other bar and managed to grab two seats, at about 9:20 they came by to finally tell us the table was ready. I’m not complaining about the lack of any early table but a little acknowledgement and communication goes a long way. They both must have passed me a dozen times in the hour and a half that we were sitting at the bar, provide a status or a heads up that the 9:00 might even be late as a courtesy at least. Good food, good atmosphere, host staff needs a lesson or two in customer service.

Enjoyed a great night out at Yvonne’s prior to a show.
- Bootlegger cocktail was fantastic, overall an excellent cocktail list
- Kale salad and oyster mushroom flatbread were both delicious. We loved sharing these choices and would choose them both again.
- The carrots were a small portion, flavor seemed unbalanced, a confusing “social plate” for $15 - should be categorized as a side.
- Haloumi cheese also very tiny and was just ok.
- Service could use more polish considering the menu prices

We will definitely be back. Would really love to see a few more vegetarian / pescatarian options next time. Menu is on the meaty side.

The ambiance alone makes this a special place and the food is every bit as interesting and
appealing. We enjoy restaurants that specialize in small plates (tapas). Yvonne's small
plate offerings are imaginative and tasty. My wife and I had plenty to eat with an order
of four plates and a dessert all of which we shared. That and wine by the glass only set us
back $115,00 (before tip). Order taker Emily was very good in her recommendations and
explanations. We would definitely return to Yvonne's, this is a really neat restaurant.

This is NOT your grandparents supper club! This concept by the COJE Management Group has certainly attracted quite a following in Boston and when you visit you'll see why. From the painstaking refresh and modernization of the old Locke Ober, outstanding cocktail list and curated wine list, to the delicious tapas, they left no detail overlooked. Try to make some time to grab a seat at the bar before your reservation to people watch and watch the outstanding bartenders at their craft.
The service is efficient and polished almost to a fault. The menu is a tad bit confusing but is broken down into snacks, sharing plates, flat breads, and feasts. The portion sizes on the sharing plates are rather on the small side so you'll need to order quite a few for a party of four. If you are someone with a larger appetite be sure to include one of the feasts as part of your order. It certainly won't take long to rack up a hefty bill at Yvonne's. Standout dishes from our most recent visit include; the chicken & quinoa meatballs, the honey shrimp, croquettes, and octopus.
