Attentive knowledgeable service. The grilled Octopus Mad Chilean Sea Bass was awesome.
The restaurant was location was great and the serves was brilliant.
Food was quick to the table and very tasty as well as the drinks!
I would recommend visiting Yuca.
Food was amazing. Very delicious. Service was outstanding. We had calamari, goat cheese and truffle croquettes...all were amazing. The coconut shrimp and gnocchi entree were excellent. The gnocchi had a spice sauce which was delightful. We had the panacotta and mango tiramisu for dessert. I would have to say hands down the mango tiramisu is he go to dessert. The have an wide variety of mojitoa and margaritas, both of which were delicious as well.
It was one of our long time go 2 when visiting SOBE for past 15 years. We always get the whole red snapper, because it was the best anywhere. Except this time sorry to say very disappointed. The snapper wasn't fresh and the coconut rice had no cocnut. Sad to say, probably won't be a go 2 any longer.
Yuca was recommended to us by a bartender at our favorite restaurant in New Jersey. We opted for outside seating. Beside the great food and service the people watching made the night a very enjoyable experience. We recommend to all when staying in South Beach.
It’ so tough to tell what to order, because it’s all so good. We skipped lunch so we could try more dishes at dinner; that was an excellent strategy. Try the fresh tasting Mojito, the date appetizer, and the sugar shrimp, and the vegetarian plate, and you won’t regret it!
Honestly, like too many places in Miami Beach, this is a tourist/drunk sales force people trap.
The food is okay, but not spectacular and quite blend. My ox tail dish was dry and seriously lacking onto vegetables side. Desserts were sugary,
Noise level is atrocious if you happen to be seated next to a table of 20 business revelers, already drunk when they walked in.
But, make no mistake, even for a party of three, you will be automatically billed for the 18% service charge as Yuca correctly assumes not too many sophisticated clients visit their place. :(
Great food. Very personalized service from knowledgeable servers. Romantic setting in an old world in town South Beach location.
Super staff, great food, wonderful location. Staff did a great job accommodating us. Highly recommend.
Too loud in there
Pork Shank was unbelievably good...service was excellent
YUCA is on Lincoln Road in South Beach. If you eat outside it is great for people watching. Also great location if going to the New World Symphony as it is a short walk. Great Mojito cocktail. Interesting and very good Cuban/American based food and not heavy like some Cuban food. My wife and I go there every year as our annual Lincoln Road dinner outing.
Birthday. Server was just floating around
Great food and great vibes! Our waiter was excellent and gave us great recommendations.
Excellent Gazpacho, loved the Yuca Rellena and the tacos. Nice blend of Cuban and Spanish cuisine.
Terrible service. Terrible service. Food was mediocre.
Everything went just fine! I highly recommend the place! Excellent service, outstanding food!
Enjoyed the flavours and the Cuban ambiance with violinist.
Honestly, don’t waste your money. The place looks good but the food is bad. Ceviche wasn’t fresh, tasted fishy and poorly seasoned. Paella tasted like instant rice seasoned with a flavor packet, tossed with old seafood.
did not have a pleasant experience. was seated in corner table next to a very very very loud table of about 15 people. could not even talk to my date without having to raise my voice. second floor was closed to my dismay. online I understood there was dancing. food was good and server was kind and attentive however overall experience was poor.
The food is very good. The service, well, let's just say that everything that we ordered arrived at the same time; appetizers, entrees, salads on large plates that were too bit for the table of 4
The restaurant is located in a great location and the service is very good. The food has a nice presentation but is mediocre. This was my second time to dine here. Both times the service was good but the food was lacking.
This is a great place for appetizers and drinks. We had the paella for dinner and it was good, but apps were the highlight of the meal.
Nestor was our waiter, he was very good- we had friends from London and the south Hamptons first time in south Florida- they were very impressed with the delicious meals. Only negative was the noise level- very hard to hear each other - otherwise we will go back
Simply amazing. Food was perfect, service was awesome, music was great. Thank you for everything
Yuca provides an excellent venue on Lincoln Road Mall to enjoy Nuevo Cubano cuisine while taking in the eclectic celebration known as Lincoln Road Mall. I recommend it to all my friends who come in from out of town. Thanks.
What a find, great location, great food & awesome mojito's.
People watching venue +++
Outdoor seating makes the venue more enjoyable.
Staff friendly & very helpful.
Awesome mojitos! Good service. Empanadas were tasty.
This restaurant was amazing! From the minute we walked in the door, we received the best customer service!! The manager, Orlando, was great! He greeted us warmly, attentively took care of us, and made us feel very welcome. Drinks, food, service and atmosphere were all really amazing!! The food was authentic upscale Cuban food, and it was delicious! Throughout the meal, we were serenaded by the talented violinist! My friends and I all agree that Yuca was definitely the highlight of the trip! Thanks to the restaurant and staff who made our night so special and fun!
It was our first visit- Six of us enjoyed every bite! Our waiter guided us through the menu and made wonderful suggestions!
The noise level was a bit too much for meaningful conversation but a great time!
The special steak of the day which was shredded and served with onions was to dry. There steaks were too tough. The paella was awesome. The half chicken was very good. Plenty of staff. The waiter was not Cuban so every time we asked specific questions as to preparation or ingredients he was not very knowledgeable. Empanadas were excellent.
We really wanted to like YUCA, but our experience fell short of our expectations. The food was very expensive ($50+ per person) for what you get. I ordered the grouper special for $36 and it was about a 3 ounce portion of fish with some grilled squash and rice. The service was efficient, friendly and professional. A friend ordered the whole fried fish ($39) and he said he was very disappointed because it was very overcooked and dry.
We wouldn't go back. Too many other places in South Beach that offer better food at more reasonable prices.
Excellent service and innovative food. Pleasantly surprised to have an authentic meal in the heart of South Beach...
Amazing food, service was incredible, overall great great night with my honey! Also I’m gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, and have a lot of food allergies, and there was plenty I found to eat!
We were staying in Palm Beach area but wanted to head down to Lincoln Road for dinner.
We had heard that YUCA was good.
Traffic was terrible on I-95 S with multiple car crashes.
It took around 2 1/2 hours to get down to the restaurant and find parking but it was worth the effort.
Very good appetizer with warm goat cheese.
All entrees were very good as were the side dishes.
Slow service at start, but then commented to hostess and service was Great!!!
Service was poor but food excellent. They completely ignored the reservation time so we had to wait for 30 min at the bar. Then had to ask a few times to get a beer. The food though was very good. So if you are not in a rush, very nice place.
Nice evening, nothing special was here years ago, seemed more special. I had an early reservation, seated inside upfront, next to a table with a child that was not seated, sorry people even though it’s early, keep your children seated. This is not McDonald’s with a playroom. My table was set for 4, reservation for 2. I consistently saw 3-4 waitstaff watching the Lincoln Road walking traffic, no one intended to make our 4 a 2 until after appetizers. Twice had to ask a waiter (not mine) to refill water glasses, he never did. Finally a busboy did. Not without three waiters watching the walking 🚶 pass by. Not really worth $140 for 2. No alcohol. No dessert. I always leave a 20%+ tip, but Yuca included a 18% tip in the bill for 2, I gave no extra.
Service was outstanding! Tried very hard to accommodate my picky teenager and made a dish not on the menu. When my soup came out room temperature they heated it up right away. Black bean soup outstanding. Loved the beet Salad and nice enough weather to sit outside. Something for everyone.
