Wow, wow, and more wow! I heard this place was good, but honestly it was one of the best meals I've ever had. A couple of months ago we were checking the place out, and the chef/owner came out to talk to us. I had explained that I had a gluten allergy, He basically told me most of the stuff... More

This was our first visit to YB-we have been wanting to try this since we've consistently had great food at his brothers restaurant (George's Place). We were not disappointed with our dinner-the service and food were both excellent. Interesting menu with a nod to the owners Greek heritage. The setting is relaxed and simple. The duck breast in lavender emulsion... More

Again was there for breakfast, both Dave and I had the breakfast pizza. Again very good. BUT disappointed with how the place looked. I understand places are busy in Cape May in the summer but under the long table in the middle of the room there were all sorts of napkins and paper and food on the floor that should... More

We went here on Sunday for breakfast. We walked in and there was no hostess; as it turned out, there were only two waitresses working the entire floor. There was another couple ahead of us and about three minutes after we walked in they were seated. There were two empty tables, but the waitress who greeted us said it would... More

We had a wonderful meal here. The staff was engaging and the service was excellent. A larger space is necessary to support this growing business. Well done younger brother!

It was our first time trying this restaurant, and we found the atmosphere and staff to be pleasant. The waitress accommodated our dining companion's request to make the music softer, which helped our conversation. I had the Greek Village salad as an app which could have fed, well, a Greek Village. My husband had the spicy soba noodles. Both were... More

We go to Cape May every year. Y.B. is quite new (2 or 3 years?) and we can't wait to return each year. It is small so reservations are helpful. The chef is young and quite frankly, a genius! We have never had a meal that was less than incredible. Unusual flavor combinations just work! WTF is my favorite appetizer.... More

My wife and I came across YB one evening in the spring and decided to give it a try. We found the menu to have some very interesting, creative items on it. We had a pork belly appetizer that was excellent. Then we had entrees that were close to wonderful, but not quite. My wife fish entree was very tasty... More

We have on a number of occasions gone to The Y.B. with friends. The food and staff are excellent. Most of the time we order numerous appetizers and share. Always the mac & cheese poppers and the duck fat fries. Have never seen small children at this intimate restaurant and very happy for that. Cape May over the years has... More

Really, really SUPER service from Corinne, the only server on duty on our mid-september weeknight visit. She was knowledgable, friendly and accommodating --- to EVERY guest in the room. Our seafood entrees were delicious and fresh with flavorful, contemporary preparations. The mac & cheese poppers, not something we are normally likely to order, were spectacular. BYOB makes this trendy little... More
