One of the good things about a road trip is the great restaurants you find along the way, one of the challenges of a road trip is finding great restaurants along the way. We found quite the respite in a little French restaurant in Virginia...Beach in Le Yaca. The ambiance is great, the staff is exceptional, friendly and knowledgeable (thank you Terri and Cecile) and the food lives up to it all. From the cocktail to the dessert, I loved it, but if you are ever in Virginia Beach and find yourself at Le Yaca, order.the.crab.cake! One final note: Wednesday is burger and frites night, and you can bet, we’ll be back.More

Reserved a table at Le Yaca for our 25th Anniversary, which we celebrated in Virginia Beach (first time there). This restaurant was an exceptional treat; it went beyond our expectations for anniversary dinner, and is worth every penny. It is an up-scale French restaurant -...white tablecloths and black tie wait staff. Service was outstanding - very attentive, but not at all pushy. Waitress gave us excellent suggestions for wine pairing with our meal. We went with the $47 Price Fixed menu. Started with house salad that was so fresh we could have had seconds on that alone. I chose the tenderloin and lobster tail combo; my wife had the crab cake and lobster tail combo. Both meals were exceptional, and we obviously shared the crab cake and tenderloin with one another. Sides were excellent. For dessert, we had the molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and the caramelized apple pastry with vanilla ice cream. Shared, of course, and both desserts were delicious. When asked if the dinner was a special occasion, we mentioned our Anniversary, and we were treated to a champagne toast. All in all, it was a wonderful dining experience. We would wholeheartedly recommend Le Yaca to anyone looking for a special event and a special meal.More

He was knowledgeable but not stuffy and was actually a real...person. Alex definitely added to the experience.

We had an amazing evening with our waiter Andrew. As an indecisive person, I appreciated how he made us feel like we could take our time and relax. Not to mention he made us laugh! The food was simply perfect. After hearing about this place...from a friend, it met every expectation we had. We recently ate at Orion’s Roof and didn’t think it could be topped, well Le Yaca has done so! I wish I could give the evening 10 stars!More

The atmosphere fantastic, elegant. The service the best ever!! The food was to die for!! I live in NYC, and have always craved a tasting menu and finally have one in Virginia Beach. However, I thought a 5 course tasting menu was that 5 tastes....This was 5 courses I thought the first Lobster, scallops and truffle was the Entre, but it wasn't and I was full after the second course, the duck and foie gras was next. Omg so soft and tender!!! But then got sorbet with champagne was the top. I told the wonderful French manager I am so full, and she said the Entre was next. I had to get it to go it broke my heart. Then the dessert, a souffle like I never had, ate the souffle, could take it to go. Brought back the cakes, cheese and breads. So good. But had I been told the meals will be so big, I wouldn't have ordered it. I told the French manager that in NY a tasting menu is just tasting, and I figured in France all portions are small she agreed and said they are catering to America. I can see that! Most Americans like big portions. Not me.ook what I left behind!!!More
