Went with a large group of people... AMAZING SERVICE. ambiance and lighting was gorgeous. Will be back!
Violin was far too loud and focus on meat dishes as that appears to be their specialty
Good place but for tourist. Real Cuban Rest. Are not like this.
The food was excellent & the atmosphere was great. they had live music on Friday night and it was perfect for dining with friends. I had the Cuban corvino, and others had the oxtail, pork, steak, paella, yucca & chicken. We also had the goat cheese salad, the ceviche & calamari. The calamari & ceviche were fantastic. I loved my fish. Drinks were all good as well.
My friends and I were in Miami for a physician's conference and based on the reviews already up, we chose to come to Yuca and we couldn't be happier we did. The violin player that walked around the tables was fantastic and really added to the experience. My friends and I sampled each others dishes and they were excellent and the desserts were incredible as well. I've pretty much already told people that when and if they go to Miami they should go to Yuca. Thank you guys for adding to a really great experience in Miami.
Waiter forgot about me. Didn’t refill my water. Moved myself to the bar so I could at least get something to drink. Would not go back.
The service was some of the worst I’ve ever had. Food and ambiance was mediocre.
We arrived at the restaurant a few minutes late, but the staff were so exceptionally accommodating! We were seated right away (12 girls) and were there for a friend's Bachelorette dinner. We were greeted with smiles, and courteous staff. Our waiter KAE was absolutely amazing!!! He was attentive, quick, and answered all of our questions without a hesitation! We had a celiac individual at our table, and he guided her through the menu for all of the options available for her to enjoy! Kae brought a round of drinks to our table, complimentary for the bride to be! The menu was vast, and there was something for everyone. The food was delicious, the drinks came quick and were great! Next time I am in Miami, I will definitely be returning to YUCA and can't wait to enjoy the great restaurant again!! Thank you Kae - you were amazing!!
Just ok. Appetizer came out quickly, before our drinks arrived. We had just finished our appetizer when dinner came out —still no drinks. We signaled our waiter who seemed to have forgotten the drink order b/c he asked us to repeat it and then brought them over quickly. As for the food, the empanadas ranged from very good to just ok. My husband really enjoyed his churrasco steak. My plantain crusted mahi mahi was not great — not very flavorful and a little dry. Ambience was great though — lovely to sit outside and people watch while we dined. We enjoyed the live music too!
Llevar a amigos que no viven en Miami
Had a great time! Sat outside! Food and service was great!!!
Top notch in every way. The service was attentive and friendly. The cocktails were delicious and the food was spectacular. Excellent
nice location for a quick late supper after the new world symphony
We had one night in Miami and wanted some good Cuban food. I found this place to be overpriced and just ok. Our waiter disappeared for a while, a long while and apologized. Our guests liked the sea bass, but the steaks we had were slightly tough. There was a lovely violinist playing which was nice. This place needs to have a little more creativity in their presentation of their dishes and more complex flavors. My octopus just had four tentacles sitting on the plate with one piece of broccoli rabe. It tasted ok but just not appetizing as a presentation.
Food was good
Yuca is a lovely experience. The staff are welcoming and look great in their Cuban fedoras. The food is amazing and portion sizes just right. We were slightly unlucky with a large stag party taking place behind us but the staff were great
Had a great time the food was amazing and the server was really attentive.
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
