Great seafood and a superb wine list. Somewhat noisy with a large "after work" crowd. Try to find a somewhat secluded table. Great martinis.

Had one of the best seafood meals in recent memory! Also had an fantastic breakfast. Service was very personable and engaging. The atmosphere on a Friday evening was bustling, but not over the top noisy. Breakfast Sunday morning left the same positive impressions! Will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful lobster dinner at the Yew last night and the portions were generous! The service was excellent as was the dinner, it was truly a special night! Thank you so much for the goodies, they were really appreciated! We would highly recommend the Yew and cannot wait to go back.

After a very long day, we stopped at the lounge before heading up to our room. Got a table, service and prompt service. Three scallops for $21 is really pricey, but they were very good. The salt and pepper chicken wings were excellent. A great Malbec. Very satisfiedL

This is more than a hotel restaurant- it's a worthy dining destination unto itself. The seafood appetizers and entrees are delicious, but the innovative cocktails and decadent, unique desserts are truly memorable. Try a spicy Scorpion's Tale or Stingray if you like cocktails that pack a punch. And for dessert, the cherry financier with popcorn ice cream and the deconstructed... More

Great hostess with professional skills promptly led us to our table and gave a very brief overview of the restaurant which was appreciated ,quickly followed up by our... More

It never crossed my mind to try Yew as I generally shy from hotel restaurants in cities with so many amazing restaurants. I was very pleasantly surprised with the brunches I've had a Yew so far. Instead of being in line at some other places, you can make an Open Table reservation, be seated promptly, and to indulge, I encourage... More

Staff here are second to none and the breakfast was faultless, I didn't enjoy our lunch very much but that may be down to choice in food and preferences rather than anything to do with YEW.

We go to the Yew for lunch, happy hour or dinner.....It's great every time we go. The waiters and bus boys in the lounge remember our names and what we drink. They will go out of their way to get you things that aren't on the menu. I love this place. The food is great but the service outshines everything.....if... More
