The oyster mushroom flatbread was spectacular.our entrees we’re all excellent.
The amuse-Bouche was an asparagus soup. It was too thick to drink & tasted like asparagus mush. Very unusual bcs everything is always excellent.

Best meal we had the 2 weeks spent in Cape May; been going for many years & so glad walked past their menu. Portions much bigger than expected. Even went to 1 of their others, George’s, for breakfast next morning.

This place is so great, food is very fresh and the staff are wonderful. Only issue here is the lack of air conditioning making a great experience rather a challenge to want to hang out. You have it made with the location right on Beach Ave and the innovation you bring to your dishes.

Excellent service.
Amazing appetizers…we had the wings and the flatbread. Wonderful!
Our main courses were good but I’m afraid we were too full to really enjoy them!
We will definitely go again.

Service and food were impeccable ... the space is tight for indoor dining and a bit dark, but a nice location right off of the beach. We dined booked early in the evening, so avoided the crowd of prime-time.
We ordered two of the seafood dinners and immensely enjoyed the complementary bites from the kitchen pre-dinner, which were delicious.
Overall, would highly recommend as the chef did an all-around amazing job!

I made a reservation here almost by accident (I was late to make a reservation and other restaurants were not available) so I was a little concerned when I saw the rather limited choices on the menu. I should not have been. The experience was delightful. We ordered the tuna pizza as an appetizer (it was delicious). The chef sent out two amuse bouches, a tiny cup of mushroom soup and gorgonzola wrapped in grape leaves, both delicious. I ordered the Arctic char and my wife had the Halibut. If you are a fan of great fish simply cooked, then eat here.
The service was excellent.

So the food was amazing! Service was great but my God- put the air conditioner on. It was a shame, such good food but we were unable to enjoy it as it was sweltering . Couldn’t even make it to dessert and coffee but wanted to . Such great music, atmosphere, food and service but if no AC in summer, I would not return.

Fabulous food, Amazingly perfect service (Heather) and accommodating… I needed my meal to be completely gluten free. Our meals were delicious and prepared perfectly (thank you chef!) and our waitress was so sweet and knowledgeable and made our night with her perfect service! We left very happy and we will definitely be back. Loved it. Thank you YB, best dinner out this summer.

We tried the Sunday lobster brunch for the first time and it was AMAZING. We have eaten at YB in the past and loved it but the lobster brunch is new this year. It was spectacular. My son and I had the Lobster Benedict and my wife had the lobster omelette. The servings were substantial and the price was extremely reasonable for the amount and QUALITY. We were all so happy with our meals. Everything on the menu sounded delicious. I hope YB keeps doing the Sunday lobster brunch so next year when we visit Cape May we can go again.

I went for brunch and ordered the lobster flatbread and it was amazing!! Generous portions of lobster 🦞 on the flatbread and the tater tots were the best I have ever had. Highly recommend YB for brunch because of the various lobster dishes.

A giant shout out to this unassuming newbie restaurant which is giving fancier (and more expensive) places a throw down. Expecting a Michelin Star pending next time I hear about this! :)

The ambience was incredible, from the decor to Frech rock music to rosemary tucked in the napkins. The meal was even more fantastic. We split the tuna pizza which was delicious and fun. I got the halibut which was a huge portion and so tender. My husband got the dorado which was so moist and juicy. My daughter got the Korean wings which were soooo good. The ricotta cheesecake was to die for! We highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal in Cape May.
