La Yuma did not disappoint! The food and drinks and service were all top notch, and we already can't wait to go back!!
We had a very good experience.. food was fantastic and great costumer service
Highly recommend. Food is delicious. Just please work on quicker service.
Our wedding anniversary.
Absolutely fantastic as usual. Chris makes us feel at home every time we come, and the food is just as good as the staff!
Fantastic authentic Cuban food. Best yuca, I have had. Serving mojo with garlic Cuban bread is very inventive.
Service, food, and ambiance were all great.
It was great as always irs about time Tampa has a nice Cuban restaurant that has live music and a full bar!
It was great!
Great food, big portions, great service!
Owner and employees are excellent, food outstanding and atmosphere the best.
From the moment we were greeted we knew La Yuma had great energy. Our server was friendly and fun. Cocktails, tapas, entree, dessert, and espresso were a delight. Authentic Cuban experience. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much, we ended up sitting at the bar after dinner for more conversation and enjoyment. This family business has an intimate feel with hands-on friendly owners, and delicious Cuban food!
We stumbled on a great place with even a better staff. Wife ordered paella and it was fabulous and there was so much she took half home. I had a childhood favorite ropa vieja (shredded beef) and it took me back. Chicken soup was to die for a must try. Owners came over and sat for awhile introducing us to their family. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely go back !
Excellent food, service and friendly atmosphere! Highly recommend this restaurant.
Finally! A good Cuban restaurant in the area. Sat at the bar and ordered 3 tapas plates to get a taste of many things on the menu. Very impressed. Food was tasty, drinks were good, and they had live music! Flan and some Cuban coffees for dessert and we were all set. Will definitely be back.
Loved the food, it was amazing but we knew this as we have eaten at there restaurant in Key West. We Will be Back soon.
Awesome everything! Birthday celebration with friends and family food was wonderful and so was the sangria. Everyone is our party was pleased.
First time. Food was very good but service was very slow.
My wife and I truly enjoyed La Yuma. My wife loved The While Fish, and I enjoyed the Pork Chop. The Cuban food was well flavored, cooked right and very tasty. The owners visited or table and showed a genuine interest in whether or food was to our liking.
I would strongly recommend La Yuma.
The food was amazing and the service outstanding!!
Excellent Cuban cuisine without going to Ybor City! Delightful owners visited the table to welcome us and made the experience that much better. We will be going back soon!
The first time we went it was awful. This time, based on Open Table's top 10 list, we tried again, ordering nothing but Paella and drinks. the first craft beers we ordered were flat, but the bartender cheerfully replaced them. The Paella was very good, if a little too salty. We ordered Paella for 2 which was really Paella for 6! Plenty to take home.... we're ready to try again....
Delicious food and ambiance!
La Yuma was just okay. The food was mediocre and it was cold when I received it. By the time the server was able to return to check on us, I had already eaten. She did feel sorry and offered us a free dessert. However, at that point we were ready to be done with this forgettable experience. There are far better cuban restaurants in Tampa Bay.
Where to start? A great experience from the moment we walked in. Our waiter Wendell was on point all night, exceptionally friendly and knew the menu inside and out! Visiting there with friends from the UK who had never had Cuban food before and La Yuma didn't disappoint. It was my first yep there as well and I have to say everything there was fantastic! We had roast pork dinner, v the sampler platter, and the mahi mahi. All of it was exceptional! The yucca was good with the sauteed onions and the plantains were sweet and cooked perfectly. The roast pork was my favorite but the ropa vieja was great to! Excellent sangria and the tres leche was fantastic! I have to add, the manager tonight went out of his way to spend time with us and my friend's son and it was just fantastic. That alone earned my respect and will learn them a repeat visit from me. Can't say enough good about how well we were treated and how impressed I am with our experience! Will return for sure!
Overall the meal was good, the entrees were fantastic. I am extremely picky when it comes to Hispanic food, as I can cook it at home, and I did NOT want to stop eating the palomilla steak. The beans were a little bland, the yuca needed more garlic, but I will definitely visit again. I did have to ask the waiter for a refill on my drink, they were empty for a while, and although he walked right by a million times, he not once glanced to see if our drinks were in need of refills.
La Yuma should be called La Yumo! Great food, friendly staff. Great service!
The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. I will return.
Great place and friendly service. Family owned and operated so make sure to go and support a local business !
Food was very fresh and service was fast for Valentine's Day. I had the snapper, tasted amazing!
The menu has a nice variety to choose from. My wife had the Cuban Grande Trio and had a lot to take home. I had the Seafood combo in a creamy garlic sauce that was outstanding. I cannot recall a better seafood presentation anywhere. The service was beyond impeccable with friendly and very knowledgeable staff at every position. Glad to have found this gem of a restaurant. We will definitely be back.
Shane was our server he took time me to explain the menu too us, which we really appreciated because it was our first time eating Cuban food. The food was absolutely fantastic! And the service was better!! Highly recommend this place for a quiet romantic dinner and great food!
A great choice for a family meal. The food and service were fantastic.
2nd visit, just as good as the first! Very busy, but didnt feel crowded. Live music was nice touch without being loud and overpowering
A great dinner on a date night with my wife. Service and food were fantastic.
After just one visit it is on the top of my list of restaurants in the Tampa Bay area
We came here based the past reviews, food was very good. Looking for cuban food come here, I'll be back for sure!
Outstanding food that is freshly prepared. Shane was our waiter and he was Great!
