We had eaten in the Yaca Restaurant in Williamsburg and were delighted to find one in Virginia Beach.It's an east 15-minute drive from the north beach. We had the fixed menu and started with Onion Soup. The flavor was wonderful, but it was served differently...than I've come to expect--maybe that's my problem! For the main course, my husband the pork and I had the combination shrimp and tenderloin--both $42 for 3 courses. Both were excellent. For dessert, he had the Lemon Mousse and I had the Tarte Tartine--both amazing. The tarte Tartine included a swath of the best caramel I've ever tasted. We shared a bottle of Bordeaux that was tasty (once it had breathed for a bit) and was only $35. Service was impeccable. Our total bill for 3 courses and wine was $119.More

World class French cuisine. French onion soup with a country twist. Coquilles St Jacques perfectly prepared. Although not traditional French, best crab cakes ever! Save room for dessert. Exceptional staff at every level. Thanks Janelle!

Beautiful dining area tastefully decorated. Parking was an issue, but not intolerable in the crowded shopping center parking lot. I'm 1/2 French which is only worth noting because I grew up enjoying authentic French cooking in Paris. The meal I enjoyed at Le Yaca was...as close to my mother's cooking as I have enjoyed. No one will be disappointed with the food at this restaurant. However, the service was a bit confused. Three times during our dinner we were brought plates for other tables. This is not high traffic restaurant which might explain the mistakes on the contrary there were only 3 tables other than ours being served. Otherwise, the service was pleasant and not rushed. The only other observation to share involves the included "sommelier selected" glass of wine that was included in the special I selected. The wine was never offered or provided. A disappointment accompanying an otherwise excellent experience.More

Everything was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Our meal started with excellent crusty French bread. We opted for the three course menu, choosing the salad and the French onion soup for our first course. Their slightly different take on the soup is lighter than the...traditional and full of flavor. Our entrees were the combination filet and crab cake and the special of the day, Hawaiian snapper. Both were perfectly prepared and we devoured every bite. For dessert we enjoyed the apple pastry and the warm chocolate cake. The cake absolutely melts in your mouth. Wine recommendation was spot on. Service was excellent, attentive and friendly, but never “stuffy”. Le Yaca is my new favorite Virginia Beach restaurant. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area.More

Second time for brunch here at Le Yaca and couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. Service (Gabriel) was professional, fast and attentive. Brunch was superb with very good selection with balanced mix of top quality meats (filet, ribeye, etc.), fish (sole, salmon, crab..),...soup or salads and desserts. We had the crab and smoked salmon seafood benedicte which included two poached eggs with hollandaise and spinach along with the steak poivre (8 oz. tenderloin) . Both were gastronomic delights! The house salads were fresh, crisp and tastily dressed. The apple and chocolate desserts were rich, plentiful and oh so good!! The mimosas and bloody mary were included in the incredibly low set price of $35 per person for what I would say was the "best deal" in town!!! How could we not highly recommend Le Yaca. This is a "MUST" experience when dining in Virginia Beach!More

Had lunch at Le Yaca on June 18. (Suggest making reservations if you want to sit in the dining room. Otherwise, you may be able to eat in the bistro/bar area.) From start to finish, everything was excellent. Promptly seated. Andrew our server attended to...our every need. The food was delicious (petit filet -perfectly prepared with veggies/spinach/sliced potatoes and seafood casserole with veggies). Great three course menu (mushroom soup and salad to start with five or six options for dessert.) Very nice wine list (bottles, by the glass or carafe. If I could give them 10 stars I would do so. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend Le Yaca for a wonderful meal, excellent atmosphere and fabulous service.More
