Our server has given us an excellent customer service and great food recommendations, the overall service is impeccable. Sorry I forgot our waiters name but thank you sir for the experience, a must try for an authentic mexican cuisine!!!
Great food. The guacamole is excellent.
It was a beautiful afternoon so our group ate on the patio. I understand insects when you dine outdoors however we spent the next 1 1/2 hrs shooing flies. It distracted from the great food
Loved that the chef stopped by and customized the dinner enchiladas to a Suisa Sauce since normally just lunch. Of all the many choices in downtown LA it was tough but we were not disappointed. Fabulous Margs too.
The location of this restaurant is something that the restaurant can't help with. It's located in an area full of homeless population, so use your imagination about the surroundings. NOT A GOOD PLACE FOR A FIRST DATE, or to impress someone, in my opinion. Unless Skid Row was one of your visiting locations. The inside of the restaurant is immaculate and the ambience is great! They do have valet parking, which is something you should do, even though there's plenty of street parking. For safety reasons.
The food is made of quality ingredients and you can taste the difference. We ordered the carnitas (very flavorful, a bit too salty), mole and one more dish that I can't remember the name. They were all very good and everything was finished. We had a separate order of the guacamole, which was very pricey, but very tasty. I'd order it again. For dessert we ordered the tres leches cake. It was divine!
In summary, if this restaurant was located in a safer area, I might visit again, but not frequently. After all, a 3 entree dinner with 1 side, one desert and 1 drink, ended up over $100. Kind of a bit too much over of what one would usually pay for some delicious Mexican food.
Great food and atmosphere and attentive service. Only flaw was rough neighborhood at night
We’ve been several times now and it just keeps getting better! We sat at the bar with Sam before our friends arrived and had a great conversation about their very large selection of tequilas and mescal and random chit chat. You must get the guacamole, kale salad, shrimp dish and also a big fan of their carnitas! Can’t wait until we go back again!
The dining experience here was wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Have never had a bad or even compromised meal here. The food is delicious and fresh. The bar is extensive with many varieties of tequila and mezcal. The ambiance comfortable. Generally quiet unless big groups are there.
Great happy hour! Excellent margaritas and ceviche at half price.
For dinner we shared the grilled fresh branzino and a kale salad. Service was very sincere and friendly — bartender happily carried out drinks and appetizer to the table when we were ready to be seated. I was tempted to give the overall experience 5 stars, except there were no serving utensils for the shared fish, and the salad was swimming in too much dressing.
A friend who often travels to Mexico City says that Yxta Cocina feels like an authentic duplicate of any of the finer restaurants in that city.
I travel quite far to eat at Yxta's. I am of Mexican descent, have traveled throughout Mexic and I can honestly say this is some of the best Mexican food I have ever tasted. Try it, you will not be disappointed!
Food and drinks were all outstanding. We ordered tacos Al pastor, enchiladas de mole, and a few sides and everything was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive and the food came very quickly. The restaurant is located in a strip mall area and I would recommend valet parking ($4) to avoid walking around at night in this area.
We went to Yxta to celebrate my birthday with some friends. I made a reservation for 6 but we had 3 more people coming that I was not expecting. I talked to the hostess and she was so nice to set up a bigger table for all of us. We started with delicious drinks, I loved the spicy margaritas and the micheladas were to die for. Food was delicious and it didn’t take them long to get everyone’s food. My husband ordered the carnitas and it was amazing! Service was great, our server was so nice and helpful, I forgot her name but she was extremely pleasant and made sure we would have a great dinner. Loved this beautiful restaurant and I’m definitely coming back!
Attentive service, upscale, clean venue with delicious food.
Authenic Mexican Food with a foodie twist. Always is worth the drive, never disappoints.
Delicious food and drinks! Valet parking makes it easy.
Always a great experience at YXTA....
Food and service is top notch every time!
Food was fantastic, service excellent. Great cocktail list as well. I've loved this place for years but it's just getting better.
Good restaurant for lunch or dinner. Nice spot with delicious food. Location is sketchy though, so not for the type of person who’s squeamish about the “bad parts of town”.
It was a hot day and the AC wasn’t sufficient to make the meal comfortable
Outstanding food and service! We had the guacamole, ceviche, and tabalita. Everything was delicious. Definitely will be in our restaurant rotation.
Fantastic,the guacamole was so delicious. I had chicken enchiladas mole also amazing and the flan was the best I ever had.. go here
Food fresh as always. Jamaica margaritas refreshing!
One of my favorite places to eat but really missed the mark this time. Food was very salty didn’t even eat half of it and left special instructions to bring out pice of cake for friend’s birthday which was not done. I had to remind server to check for special instructions again missed the mark on this visit.
This place is consistently fabulous! I've never had a bad experience here; food, service and drinks are simply superior.
Always good food, but we wish they were open on Sundays too
Server was absolutely great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Always reliably good Mexican Cuisine. We especially like their molé sauce and guacamole.
As always excellent food with a diverse menu and great service
DELICIOUS margaritas! And the shrimp taquitos are unreal amazing.
Went for a team dinner with Co-workers. The food was excellent, as always (empty plates all around)! But the service was pretty slow and sparse, due to there not seeming to be enough serving staff on at the dinner hour. No rudeness—just too many tables for the 1 or 2 waitstaff they had on. I kind of understand; it was a weeknight and the dinner hour is clearly less busy for them, but you still ought to have had at least one more server on.
Excellent food, sophisticated food, attentive service.
The food is always good, but the service was HORRIBLE! the waitress never asked to take our drink order, or lunch order; I had to ask around. It was a late lunch- so the place was not full. I took a very important client there for her bday lunch, noted it in the reservation, she knew, yet she never brought out a cake or anything! Finally, to add insult to injury she brought the check before even asking us if we wanted dessert and kept coming back to see if it was paid, until she had the audacity to tell me she needed to have the check paid because she was off! She was rude, unprofessional and ruined what was supposed to be a special lunch!
Very tasty food, solid service in an okay neighborhood. Inside dining area was very loud, outside was better. The guacamole was to die for and all of the food was excellent.
Great service and Happy Hour menu. Reasonable prices.
The food is very good and the service is attentive. We eat there fairly often and have never been disappointed.
Good food, excellent drinks, excellent service. The mole enchiladas are a must!
The food is always amazing.
Had dessert this time. The chocolate ice cream is like a frozen Mexican hot chocolate.
Their chips never ever disappoint.
I wish they offered the enchiladas verdes for dinner.
And last but not least the drinks are really good!!
Food, service and atmosphere are all terrific. My group had the roast pork entree, the shrimp and the steak...and of course guac, margaritas and chips. Everyone loved what they ate! Can't wait to go back.
