The five of us began with the Mediterranean Board appetizer which consisted of spanakopita, baba ganoush, hummus, greek salad, tabbouleh, and pita. It was so good and very large. We ordered the chicken mole sandwich, smoked salmon wrap, spinach toastie, chicken salad sandwich, and split pea soup. Everything we had was top notch, and was totally eaten right there! Chris...

Four of us went for lunch to York Street and found it thoroughly enjoyable. It is interestingly decorated with memorabilia and has a good menu. We shared a Mediterranean Board for an appetizer and each had a delicious sandwiches or "toasties" for lunch. We were too full to try any desserts but they looked great. Waitress and staff were very... More

First, the atmosphere is relaxed amidst a great collection of various collections of memorabilia. The waitstaff could not have been better, but the menu needs some updating. We did not try a main course, so this review is limited to the large dish of Mediterranean appetizer plate and the dessert. It would have been ok if we had asked about... More

Heading to a play nearby we decided to give York Street Cafe a try...so glad we did. The atmosphere is eclectic, cozy and inviting. The menu is varied and creative. The Amish Chicken was recommended...and was wonderfully juicy. The grilled chicken spinach salad was so fresh and flavorful. We'll be back!!

Any place with a velvet Elvis, is my kind of place. This is a really neat place and the food is outstanding (as is the service). I met a couple of schoolmates there and we stayed until closing. The menu is great with fresh fish dishes and a broad menu. Laid back place with a lot of vibe!

Service was great. This building offers ambience with great eclectic. After dinner we went upstairs for live music. It was a bit warm upstairs but... More

Always delicious. Service is great, very friendly staff. My husband had the stuffed chicken breast and I had the night's special - grilled ahi tuna with wasabi glaze. Both were delicious. I think the plating could be better, as nothing looks pretty, although it tastes good. And they could give the side veggies some pizazz. Desserts are fantastic.
