Beautiful restaurant; however, food was disappointing. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but I expected really, really good food... the kind you take a bite of and immediately think "oh my... this is yummy". The food was just OK.

Awesome vibe and very cool setting...Adams Family meets Alice in Wonderland! Better for drinks and ambience that for food.

I really loved the ambiance, and would recommend coming here if you want to have some weekend drinks in a trendy spot. Great cocktail selection, but wine list was far too limited. I enjoyed the cocktail that was a mixture of don Julio tequila, lime, cucumber, and ancho chile.

I want wowed by any of the food, but was not put off either..I found it to be better than average, but overpriced for portion size and flavors. The The king mushroom, yogurt dish, under “social plates” was quite good! I also enjoyed the octopus & chickpea fritter dish, and the garlic cheese toast appetizer. However, the hummus dish was underwhelming.

Service was better than average, especially considering how busy it was! They were attentive enough, and very friendly!

Took my dad for father’s day after raving about the food. I was so embarrassed. There were breadcrumbs on the seats. He was missing silverware and had to take it from an adjacent table. Our server didn’t appear to take our order for over 10 minutes and we had to ask someone to call him before he came another 5-10 minutes later. No one asked how our meal was or if we wanted dessert. Overall the service was sloppy and we were made to feel like an afterthought rather than a customer someone cared about. I have been an avid fan of Yvonne’s, but after this experience will not be returning anytime soon. What a shame

Food was very good albeit expensive. We ordered many different small plates. Sent back 1 dish (smoked shishito toast) which was disgusting, but all the rest was very good. Main concern was the entire meal 1.5hrs+, the server and buser never once cleared our dirty plates or changed our silverware and they were small salad plates. At a place like this paying these prices, we should have had our plates changed after every course. Table cleaned etc. By the end of the meal our plates were filthy and flavors were mixing all around.

Amazing food and service, and atmosphere! We went to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and we’re treated to complimentary champagne-such a lovely touch. The food was wonderful-some of the best tasting and beautifully presented food we’ve had. Our waiter Brendan was fantastic and made our night very special. Would definitely recommend and we will be back for sure!

Always a treat to dine here. Food is great and unique. Service is impeccable. Must when we are going to theater. Before you can eat small with tapas so you are not to full to sit through the show. After theater to sit back and enjoy...and any other time as well.

great food and wonderful environment and our server was fantastic. The dining room/supper club was way to loud however. I don't much care for having to basically yell or speak in a very loud voice and having it be hard to hear one another while trying to enjoy great food. It definitely detracts from enjoying the food and the company of friends.

Very inelegant in that regard and doesn't match the aesthetic cool architectural vibe. The place should save the loudness for the bar area and give cool grooves to the supper club.

thanks

Service--particularly bar service--needs to be greatly improved! We have enjoyed Yvonne's in the past and think it's a beautiful, interesting spot--but twice recently now we've been disappointed with the service. I hope this is not a trend! We really want to continue coming here. Food is delicious but something has to be done to make timing and overall service better!!

This was our first time at Yvonne's and weren't sure what to expect. While the meal was good, we were confused by too many themes going on; won't hurry back. It started off on a rough note---I was looking forward to one of the martinis described on the website, but the waiter didn't know what I was referring to...although he did bring me a fine drink. The food was tasty, but our table of 4 didn't think the food concept fit the vibe of the place at all. In fact, we thought the vibe was all over the place. The pounding music didn't fit the sense of elegance, the tapas style menu didn't fit the setting, and what's with the female erotica artwork all over the place? Weird. Loved the ladies room.

Such a unique Boston spot. You walk through what looks like a defunct hair salon, into a cavernous speakeasy type space, with multiple rooms. They are ornately decorated, with comfy chairs, yet feel modern, not stodgy. The food is innovative, cross cultural tapas. Everything is excellent! A great spot for occasions, foodies, and fun nights out.

Yvonne's was a great experience. The food and service was excellent and while the wine list was small, there were good options. The ambiance felt great and exclusive, but my only complaint is that the music seemed way too loud for the scene. Still a place I would go back to.

Yvonne's was on my bucket list for a while and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, especially the viper chop social feast! Flavorful, tender and well prepared. The beautiful decor and grand ambiance transport you back to another time, but it's still lively and approachable. Our server was friendly, helpful and attentive. My only gripe -- the hostesses are not the friendliest, but once you get past the speakeasy door, a wonderful dining experience awaits inside.

My wife and I went to Yvonne’s for our 2nd anniversary. We didn’t tell any of the staff, just wanted a special night together at a romantic setting. We were greeted out front of a non descript business type entrance by very friendly hostesses. We were thru a doorway into a room that made you feel like you were walking into a club that the Great Gatsby might attend. Beautiful wood bar and walls, romantic setting was definitely achieved. The food was amazing. Everything was cooked and presented perfectly. My wife loved the cocktail. I had to take a picture of the beer bottle so I would remember it. Best beer I’ve ever had. Amazing house music played at a nice volume that allowed conversation. We would recommend Yvonne’s to anyone that wishes to enjoy a special night. We will be back again when we visit Boston in 2 years.

The place was a bit too crowded and a tad too loud for my taste but it was Saturday night at 8:30 PM so what did I expect? Anyway, the food and drinks made me forget about both pretty quickly. We decided to go for small bites and ordered the Turkish hummus, the lamb sausage pita, the seared octopus and charred lamb ribs. Every dish was perfectly cooked and everything was a-ma-zing! I enjoyed every single bite. They have a lot of different and interesting cocktails which are NOT watered down. Our waiter, Kelvin, was very friendly and attentive even though he had quite a few tables to take care of. He let us enjoy every dish w/out rushing us from one to the next. Finally our bill was $135 (w/out tip) for 4 dishes and 4 drinks. What else can you ask for? Great food, great drinks and a decent bill. We will definitively go back.

You can tell they train their waitstaff well or only hire well seasoned professionals. Service was top notch! Food was delicious - favorites were the lamb ribs, walnut shrimp, and chicken and quinoa meatballs. The only disappointment was the gulf shrimp - while large pieces, it lacked flavor. Must get the Greek doughnuts for dessert! The kitchen also sent out a compliment dessert for our birthday girl.

Very chic vibe. A bit dark in there. Cool spot.

We had dinner at Yvonne's while visiting Boston on our 20th anniversary/my birthday. Dinner was delicious; we had the ham & cheese croquettes, crispy tater cubes, chicken and quinoa meatballs, and lamb ribs. The cocktails were tasty and inventive, and after dinner we had several drinks in the bar area. Highly recommended.

Our server Eden was fantastic. The atmosphere was very glam. Cool vibe and nice change from the usual Boston decor.
Food was interesting and thoughtfully prepared however dishes were in the hot and spicy side. A bit too much in some cases. Didn’t feel it was necessary as plates were quite flavorful all on own without sauces adding heat.
Definitely would return and recommend.

We had our last dinner here for our vacation in Boston. We thoroughly enjoyed this venue. It is very unique: dark and cozy and yet still had a vibrant vibe.
Our waitress was wonderful, explaining each dish and also telling us about the history of Yvonne's. If I ever come back,, this will be the first place I will book.
