The server was recalcitrant and surly. The restaurant was freezing cold. In fact, my husband was shivering throughout the meal. The food was fairly good but it didn’t stay warm because the atmosphere was frigid. We will not be back.

I’m quite sure the couple that left the bad review (Omni) was seated right in front of us. They came in 20 minutes late for their reservation, no apologies, and complained constantly. The server DID in fact turn the heat up, it was a freezing cold night, but I could feel that it definitely got warmer in the restaurant after they requested she turn up the heat. They proceeded to demand that she turn it up two more times. I couldn’t help but notice how they spoke to her. I was actually disgusted by their extremely self centered, spoiled behavior.
Anyway, our meal was DELICIOUS as it always is! We love the K&B salad and the Halibut w/ Brussels sprouts. We will be back this weekend to do it again!
We also thought the server did an awesome job!

A quiet night in Cape May after the bustle of New Years celebrations.. we were delighted to dine at YB. All meals are ala carte and portions are surprisingly large.

A complimentary demi cup of tomato basil soup was delicious and unexpected. Appetizers and salads are almost meal-sized. We had the kale and Brussels salad and wings, both were superb.

Entrees we enjoyed were crackling pork belly, a treat I’ve never experienced but so glad I ordered it, with Brussels sprouts. My husband’s scallops were perfectly prepared and served with baby carrots.

Dessert of caramel cake~~ there is nothing to say except OMG! Outstandingly scrumptious. The coffee even exceeded expectations. Our server was top notch and made our meal even more enjoyable.

Needless to say, we’ll be back!

We have been going to Cape May for over 20 years but yesterday was the first time we had brunch at YB and we loved it. They offer a lot of brunch dishes with lobster and I must say that was the best lobster I have had! We loved brunch so much that we ordered 4 additional dishes as a takeout to eat for dinner back at home in PA. The place was very clean, with nice French, Italian and Spanish music. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Now we have a new favorite restaurant at Cape May. This is a hidden gem.

I was excited to eat here because I had heard good things. My husband had the sea bass and it was undercooked. I’ve never seen him not finish a meal!! I had scallops and they were average. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly.

I have visted this restaurant before and thought it was very good, however this time
I felt it was disappointing. I had the Dorade which was very fishy, my husband had the scalllops and they were undercooked. The waitress never visited us untill the end of the meal therfore we didn't request another meal.

Initially I was disappointed that the entire menu had changed (yes, I loved those duck fat fries!), but our recent dinner from the new menu was excellent. Specifically, I was super impressed with how well prepared the scallops were. Cooked to perfection and served hot (which I find is often not the case as they can cool off quickly). My husband was also very pleased with the Artic Char. Our server was delightful. Well done, YB!

This is a great little restaurant with great interior vibe. The food and service were both excellent. Unfortunately I forget the name of the woman that helped us but there were two girls and both were terrific. Perfect amount of attention and both were super nice. The one even offered to try and find an umbrella for me as it was raining when we were leaving the restaurant. We had with Caesar salad and wings to start and both were delicious. They also bring you a little sampling of soup and another bite size appetizer which was included in our dinner. For entrees, I had the halibut which was cooked perfectly and my husband had the pork belly that he loved as well. It’s BYOB so remember to bring your wine! All around great dining experience and we will definitely dine there again.

Had the pleasure of dining at the YB last night. This has become our new favorite! The mushroom flatbread , the halibut and the cauliflower steak were all amazing. Portions are very generous. Our server , Sophia, was an absolute delight. And the ambiance is very cozy and romantic. This restaurant is a must if you’re near Cape May!

We loved the food we were served at this restaurant. We were a little surprised to find that no bread was served, but not having bread left room for the delicious food and generous portions. We were also given a tasty asparagus soup and an amuse bouche of stuffed grape leaves. My friend asked for coffee after dinner, but they did not have coffee. Perhaps they did not want us to linger, though we ordered dessert. Everyone enjoyed their dinner.
