I cannot say enough good things about Yxta Cocina Mexicana. The food and service are consistently on point. If I lived closer and was not so busy I would dine there more often. Go for happy hour and order the tacos from the happy hr menu along with the duck taquitos. Don't forget to order the flan (leaving room for it is up to you), either way, order it and you won't regret it. Ask to sit in Juana's section. She's an absolute angel.

We had a really good meal: tacos and margaritas! It was relaxed, comfortable, and very attentive servers.

Meal was delicious and service was fast. I had the shrimp enchiladas and my coworker had the chile relleno and we shared guacamole. Guacamole is great, I love the crunchy pepitas. Love this place!

Went for dinner with my wife and her friend to celebrate both of their birthdays. Looking for something tasty but not too fancy near the brewery we were hitting up later. Tasty food, very friendly waiter.

We sat outside which was fine. Inside noise level was too high for conversation. Chips for salsa were fresh home made and very tasty - probably ate too many - We all had taccos and enjoyed them though later felt rather "heavy". Freshly made fruit drinks were wonderful and the flan which 3 of us shared made a nice final touch. I will probably go again. Those chips were soooo good!

I enjoy the food hands down some of the best prepared Mexican food in Los Angeles. But for a tequila bar the drinks are a little on the light side. So hear is what I do 3 fingers, tequila of your choice in a whisky glass no ice. The house fresh waters or Arnold Palmer and mix to your liking or sip the tequila like its supposed be.

Our dinning experience was great. Easy parking, easy check-in. Sat our group on time. Accomodated the extra person that was not a part of our reservation with no hesitation. Our entire party enjoyed each meal. Drinks were perfect and dessert was delicious! The wait staff was very pleasant and accomodating. We will definitly be going back to try more of there menu!

I decided to visit Yxta based on the yelp reviews. It was no surprise that I wasn’t disappointed. The service was excellent from the moment I walked in, to second I exited the restaurant. The staff was very polite and attentive to my table, as well as those of others’ around me. I appreciated the amount of lighting in the room- not to bright, not too dark. (I didn’t need a flashlight to read the menu unlike other places.) It was also good enough to capture some food shots. I was a bit nervous about ordering a Chile relleno since I haven’t tasted any better than my grandma’s. But this one came pretty close. Although I would have preferred it spicier, the ooey, gooey cheese filling made up for it. The batter coating on the Chile was light and fluffy; the sauce was flavorful, especially when mixed with the Spanish rice it rested on. Since I’m vegetarian, I’m not sure what else I’d try on the menu, but I’d definitely recommend Yxta to my meat-lover friends.

Took a long time to get drink refills.
Unwilling to veer from the menu on two different requests. One was just to make chicken tacos and the other a virgin mojito. Charged $1 for sour cream that took so long to get we didn’t even need it because we were done eating.

YTXA is probably one of the best and authentic Mexican restaurants in LA. The service is always excellent, the staff friendly and accommodating and the food absolutely delicious -plus great value.

Highly recommend and great for big groups and family get togethers!

The food and service is always consistent and great! The waiters and servers are down to earth and not snobby like some other DTLA restaurants. There's no attitude here. It's all about the food and the flan is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! If you can, request Juana's section if she's working that evening. She's super attentive and awesome! You won't regret dining at Yxta. I never do. If I had the chance, money, lived closer, etc. I'd eat there more often!

Servicer was very nice and patient with helping us to choose our food. Individual care was taken and servicer was knowledgeable about the food. The only negative was that I felt there was a lot of ice in my margarita, so much so that there was less of a drink (the glasses are on the smaller size).

Work colleagues and I have gone to YXTA to celebrate Christmas since it opened. The food and service are consistently good. We each have our favorite dish though one of us will generally try something new. I visit more than just around Christmas and have introduced several friends to this delightful restaurant and dining experience. Their carnitas are the best and their potato tacos are a favorite for all of us.
