Something for everyone

Went here with a group of 15, age 60+. Terry accommodated us in the separate bar area. It was perfect. The menu had something for everyone, our salad ladies, our sandwich folks and the dinner lovers. Everyone was satisfied. The food and drinks were both good.

Arranged a Mother's Day surprise get together there between 3 families and everything was perfect. Most importantly, the brunch was delicious, the restaurant is very interesting and everything was wonderful!!! The staff was super helpful in keeping/arranging the surprise too.

We were a party of 5, sat on the patio and had Chris as our server. Everything from the drinks to the dessert and the food in-between was amazing! Well prepared, fresh and beautifully presented. The restaurant itself is something to behold - make sure you go upstairs and check out the big band.....fabulous!

First time there, and so glad we went. We had snapper and stuffed poblonos (stuffed pepper) - both were amazing. The fish was very fresh. YSC is in a beautiful old building. It was a perfect spring evening so we were out on the paver patio, which was gorgeous. There was a "big band" playing on the 3rd floor in... More

My wife and I had another good dinner at York Street Cafe. This place has a quirky but nice atmosphere, an unusual menu, and good casual service. The prices are moderate so it is always a good value. Some days they offer wine specials that are a special value.

The burger was really good and the scenery was nice. Good soup and salad. Very eclectic place with lots of old time knick knacks. Reminded us of grandmas house!

We arrived at 7pm on a Friday night, fully expecting to wait an hour for a table. We were greeted promptly, seated at a window table immediately, and our waiter was spot-on the entire night. It was as though we were celebrities. We were introduced to the daily specials (rack of lamb and red snapper) and as we looked through... More

We were anxious to try this establishment based on some positive reviews but boy was our experience a bummer. Arriving @ 7:00 on a Saturday night can be a challenge but waiting an hour to get seated was not a problem. The service and food thereafter can a only be described as non-existent and poor. We sat down at 8:00... More

York street cafe is a staple in newport. They have been in business for years. We eat here several times a year and it is always wonderful. The desserts are all amazing. The decor is eclectic and fun. You can't go wrong ordering a meal.

The food is really good. Lots of things to choose from and they are all delicious. They have a very different decor. Lots of old things to look at and enjoy.
