I highly recommend visiting Yvonne if you are in the Boston area. This place has great tapas infused with American flare. I really enjoyed the Chicken and quinoa meatballs there. The location is hidden so you might need to use your GPS to find it. Other then that, it’s great.

We were looking for a dark romantic place for drinks and dinner. We’d heard good things about Yvonne’s but I hadn’t been in the space since the old Lockober days. As soon as I walked in I knew we had made the right choice. The lighting the decor the ambiance the drinks. Just perfect. The food was great and the service was excellent. A gem

Don't look for steak and potatoes. Food tastes fine, just fairly funky.
Loud crowd.
If you went to Loch Obers don't plan on seeing anything you will remember.
Not very pricey so that took some of the sting out of eating strange stuff.

Last time I had been to Yvonne’s place was two years ago and wow! What a difference that makes. We had the rudest hostess and bartender. Luckily our sever was pleasant. Unfortunately food was extremely salty and over seasoned. Our tapas thing was a good 20/30 in between although restaurant wasn’t that busy. Unfortunately brought friends with me and was very disappointing overall. Especially flying all the from west coast and choosing to die there. Will not be going there again.

This restaurant was a great disappointment! We found the food to be absolutely undistinguished..even tasteless.
And the wonderful ambience of this venerable Boston landmark has been destroyed by the overwrought replacement decor. The seating was particularly uncomfortable. We certainly will not return.

I always like going to a restaurant deeply rooted in its location; there is a very appealing authenticity to that. But then it has to be well done in terms of decor; respectful, fun, fresh. The service has to be responsive and welcoming. The food adventurous yet accessible. Yvonne's hits all of these. In our post-trip-to-Boston conversations, we put Yvonne's at the top.

Our pre-show dinner for 4 could not have been better. We enjoyed tasty and varied shared dishes, along with an unexpected but much appreciated complementary birthday dessert for one of our guests. Most of our dishes were vegetarian, and all were delicious. The wait staff made sure that we were finished in time and were generous with their attention. Yvonne's provided a cozy atmosphere in a relatively quiet spot. This is a perfect pre-show dinner restaurant, and we will definitely return.

It was very loud, very crowded, rather chaotic. I think the library area should be closed off from the bar and social area. The restaurant is beautiful and the decor very appealing. It is missed by being so crowded.

Lived in Boston for 25 years never thought to go to Downtown crossing for dinner. This is my new favorite restaurant in Boston. Already told all my friends about it. Awesome aesthetics & even better food. Food came out fast & hot and service was top notch. We went for my gf birthday and they had 2 glasses of champagne waiting for us (comped) and gave us a free dessert. Really first class restaurant - can’t speak highly enough!

What s fun place! It was a Speak Easy restaurant! Very close to Boston Common and in the Financial district. We were in town for a National Conference and our hotel was around the corner. The front looks like a closed down hair salon but then the receptionist opens the door next to her, and WOW! Two bars and two big rooms appear! It’s very noisy and there are no windows. The food was mostly small plates with the exception of four or five larger plates to share. Our waitress was wonderful. Warning! We were not told nor was it indicated on the menu what level of spicy heat was in each dish. Some of the dishes we had were a little too spicy for both of us, delicious, but too spicy hot. We each had a toast. My husband had the “Short Rib Pastrami” I had the “Charred Maitake Mushrooms” both very good. Next my husband had the “Charred Lamb Ribs” he had never had them but unfortunately they were pretty spicy and he didn’t get to finish them. I had the “Naked Farro“ salad which also was very spicy. We also shared the “Berbere Carrots “ and they were delicious! We finished the night with the “Black Raspberry Chip Ice Cream with Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Cookie Crumble” yum!! We saw one of the larger “share” plates go by and it was a lot of food! The waitress said it was the Grilled “Viper” Chop.

Our Yvonne's experience was made thanks to our server, Jeff. He guided our entire meal and cocktail experience. From the Rubicon to duck pizza to gifting us a special anniversary dessert, we fell in love with this place. Highly recommend. And try to get Jeff A. for your waiter - amazing!
