My wife and I had our second visit to Yo In Yo Out last evening - both visits have been on a Sunday evening. We were alone in the restaurant both times we visited. The food was good each time - we both had evening specials, seafood and risotto & pasta. Unfortunately, since we went partially for United Mileage Plus... More

Having heard about Yo In Yo Out and chef Yo, I was very interested in trying it. Ended up there for a Sunday brunch and was a bit disappointed. First of all the grade given to it (as displayed in there window) by NYC Health Inspection is a "B". Not a good starting place. The 2nd really big negative was... More

Nice place for lunch. Don't know if we would go after dark, because of the neighborhood. Portabella mushroom sandwich with truffle oil was fantastic. Parisian cream puff dessert was rich and fruity with unusual butterscotch filling and fresh berries. Clean and comfortable unisex restroom was unusual for NYC.

You know you are eating quality French food when the other patrons are speaking French... The food here is quite scrumptious--very fresh and very French. If you are deciding between the crepes, the wraps, and the sandwiches, go with crepes. They are delicious!!! My wife ordered the crepe version of the goat cheese/mushroom sandwich, and I ordered the sandwich version... More

Chef Joanna is a talented cook able to bring her creative talents to this great little unpretentious restaurant. New twists to some classical dishes like beef bourguignon and chicken marsala make this place an exciting find. Deserts are a treat, chocolate mousse fabulous. The prix-fixe dinner is a deal. A great place to go after visiting the nearby Museum of... More

We went here because it was close to our accommodation but it proved to be an excellent choice. Cosy, welcoming, good menu choice and very good staff. Good value for NYC.

The food was very affordable, you get a lot of it, and the flavors were to absolutely top notch. I went with two friends for brunch, and the place was packed. Luckily we had called ahead for a reservation, so we had a table waiting for us. The waiters and what seemed to be the owner were very attentive to... More
