    Portion size was great but the dishes only came with potatoes or vegetables not both. No GF options other than 1 fish. In a made to order environment/kitchen would think this wouldn't be an issue. Waitress kind of looked at us like we had 5 heads. Just an eh experience overall.

    They were short staffed and we waited about 15 minutes before getting menus or water. We have some dietary restrictions which weren’t even listened to. Waitress never brought back or asked if we wanted extra water. Nice atmosphere but just bad overall experience.

    We took advantage of restaurant week menu which was excellent in value as per todays prices. Portions were not as hearty as we would have liked but we love to eat and portions as per pricing was fair. but dessert filled us up. We have not been happy with dining out lately but this is second time at YB and fresh food lovely service was same.

    The food was very good although I felt the scallops were under cooked a bit but the Artic Char and Shrimp dish were delicious. The wait staff of two were overwhelmed and chatty. As our waitress spent over 5 minutes speaking with other tables seemed unnecessary especially after we asked for water twice.

    We were first timers last night. The greeting, the music, comfortable intimate setting sets you up for a wonderful experience. As with any place your first visit, you are not quite sure about portions— it’s such a personal preference. We were both quite hungry and didn’t strategize the menu- we both wanted ceviche to start so we both ordered it and it was outstanding. A very festive, and generous unique presentation to say the least! For entrees, we learned for next time. Because the ceviche was such a generous portion, we could have share one entree— but that is just us! My husband had Arctic char with cauliflower, and I had halibut with asparagus. We both enjoyed, however, again, for us as first timers, we both left a large portion on our plates which I hate doing. I’m not a bring home left over person, particularly when it comes to fish, so I didn’t like being wasteful- which personally, put a damper on our experience. But that’s on us not YB! This said, one table over, a gentleman ate ever bite of his large portion Arctic char. We look forward to visiting again to enjoy the scallops and perhaps to share an appetizer. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    The filet steak was excellent and melted in your mouth. As long as they have something other then fish, seafood and pork belly we will come back. Since the steak was not on the menu and is a "special dish" we would have had to leave since there was nothing else on the menu we could eat so we lucked out and it was excellent steak.

    We were alone in the restaurant so it was very quiet. Ambience lovely. Service excellent. Food very good. But can one complain about getting too much food? The piece of Arctic char we got must have been 2-3 lbs, enormous. It could have fed a group of 6. We could only eat a small portion. It seemed gross and wasteful. Yes, a piece more appropriate in size to a reasonable portion would have been preferred (tho I guess better too much than too little). Cape May is a vacation area and so we had no way of bringing the leftovers home. The other piece of fish we ordered was normal in size. I know this is a strange complaint. And it should discourage no one from dining there.

    While the food was cooked nicely, it was totally bland. No seasoning, no sauce, nothing. I’m not sure if that is the theme of the restaurant?

    In Cape May for anniversary weekend and decided to try the lobster brunch. Megan was our server and she was really sweet and accommodating. Restaurant was modern and had a great jazz soundtrack. The majority of the choices on the menu are all lobster dishes. I had the lobster scramble which was excellent, had plenty of lobster and was served with an ample side of tater tots. The tater tots were tasty, but ordinary. Don’t get me wrong who doesn’t love a good tater tot, but I think a place that’s trying to have a high end lobster brunch would want to try and do a homemade hash brown or something to partner the elegance of the lobster dish. If you do not like lobster there are only 3 or 4 other items on the menu. Considering there were lines out the door for neighboring restaurants and only a few tables filled here, my only suggestion would be that they add other non-lobster dishes to the brunch menu. Otherwise it’s def worth a try!
