YUCA, an acronym for Young Urban Cuban-Americans, is widely known as being South Florida's original upscale Cuban restaurant featuring Innovative Nuevo Latino Cuisine or as the locals call it "Nuevo Latino." This style of cooking includes traditional Latin ingredients such as a plethora of textures, colors, and flavors that when combined creates a cuisine that is unique to anything offered outside of the Caribbean and Latin America.

Excellent Gazpacho, loved the Yuca Rellena and the tacos. Nice blend of Cuban and Spanish cuisine.

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.
