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.
The flan is to die for! Rich caramel flavor, creamy and scrumptious!
I had friend from out of town and we decided to try Yxta Cocina. What a terrific choice! Very hip, new open layout, not too loud and great service. The food was amazing! I also have to say I really enjoyed the spicy cucumber margarita too. Thanks Yxta
Happy Hour is the best, however, do try the dinner items which are all excellent.
As I always get at Yxta Cocina Mexicana, delicious food, expert cocktails, and impeccable service.
Our party of 9 was celebrating a birthday. The staff was exceptional. I arrived early and since the bar was full, our table was prepared early so that I could be seated. The food, service and ambiance was great!
Enjoyed the different menu selections, the professional and friendly staff and the ambiance. It got us away from work.
It’s always great dining at Yxta 🙌🏼
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!
Excellent food with everything were had... highly recommended!
The food was great with an ice
The ambiance was good. It’s a gem in this area and the food and drinks were great!!
Great restaurant in an unsuspecting place. I keep coming back here and bringing others. Everyone always loves it!
Excellent as always. Quality delicious food with excellent service. Fun downtown eating..
Love the food!! =) I've been there many times and the food is always delicious! I would definitely recommend it to all of my friends & coworkers.
My overall experience was great, food and service was outstanding! My waitress was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. I’ll certainly be back again soon .
Yxta Cocina Mexicana is an amazing place near downtown. It's a hidden gem. Their food is always amazing, and can accommodate large parties well. They're flan is perfect.
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.
Great service, excellent food, the best guacamole that has ever passed over my lips...be sure to park in the parking lot in front of the restaurant and not on the street
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.
I'm a big fan of this place, though not of the neighborhood it's in. Food is yummy (especially the guacamole!) & Margaritas are fabulous!
Great spot, not overly difficult to park and just have a low stress dinner.
Staff is friendly and personable...we had a great time.
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!
We went for my friends birthday and had a very good time!
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).
Fantastic restaurant! Our favorite Latin restaurant in LA!
It’s a great place to have a group of friends meet up. Parking is available and secured. Food was amazing and so were the drinks. Having a reservations made seating a fast and no waiting around. Staff is friendly and helpful.
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.
I came here to celebrate my brother's life ( he had passed on a few years ago) with a few of my friends and my mom. The inside of the restaurant is so nice and everyone kept commenting on the ambiance. I really liked the inside. Everything was great although the service was a little wonky. Our drink orders were taken but we sat for probably close to 45 min before anyone came and took our food orders. My mom went and got someone and the manager came over and spoke primarily to my mom and he had told us they didn't take our orders because it looked like we were having a good time. While I completely understand this concept, we were left sitting wondering why no one had come over and as a result, entertained ourselves. He had offered a round of drinks on the house and that he would take care of us. The rest of the night was wonderful however at the end they still charged us for one of the drinks they said they would cover and my mom had to speak to them again. Despite the service ( our server was still a real sweetheart), the food and ambiance would bring me back. Food was delicious, the drinks were great. :) I would still recommend and as a former server myself, I understand that things happen and I would not let this experience keep me from coming back.
Very accommodating location, considering we had a couple people join our group late, total of 11 people. The food was exceptional, cocktails and recommendations by the server were delicious. They have a good happy hour before 6. Best Chips and Guacamole in this part of LA and it’s all Fresh. The atmosphere can be romantic even with their TVs located in suttle areas for the sports fan in your group. We loved this place so much, we didn’t want to leave.
The food was excellent and the menu offers lots of choice. We shared tacos, appetizers, guacamole (really delicious) and salads. Everything tasted great. The chef will adjust the heat level for those who want the food more or less spicy. There is both patio and indoor dining with plenty of room for large groups. The service was great. I will definitely go back.
Good and vibe are both great.
The food was excellent and the service was great !
Yxta was ab-fab!!! Food outstanding...drinks amazing
Went looking forward to the carnitas that don't disappoint. Others in our party ordered tacos. Food portions are generous. Yummy margaritas and smoky chili with chips and guacamole started the meal.
Great place when friends want a spot to get together and catch up. Nice ambiance and excellent menu.
