Somewhat disappointing. The appetizer of Salmon tacos was very good, but the churrasquinho skewers were terrible: hard meat, dry, overcooked. The flan was overly sweet, that is not how flan is done. The place had some large tables of families, and there were babies too,...More

We got here around 6 on a Saturday night and were lucky to get a table right away. A half hour later and the place was packed. Excellent food, the platano relleno was a standout. The margaritas were exceptional and so was the service. And...More

I like this place! It's very busy and hectic after work, but the service is excellent and the food (latin fusion I think) comes out in a fair amount of time. Tuesdays tapas are half off!

Lively atmosphere as if in another country. Excellent food and variety, especially yuca, sauces, OJ (fresh on weekends). Noisy.

Yuca is one of my fav places in the city. Great drinks, really really tasty ceviche and the meat tapas are amazing! Plantain chips are divine!

Food is basic and all pre-made. I asked to remove mushrooms from a quesadilla and the waitress replied the food was all pre-made and cannot be altered. Service was poor to average. I would definitely not come back to this place. Very loud audience/ambience.

Great Latin food. Great music and tasty sangrias. I had the pork shoulder with yuca fries and mash for dinner and a tres Leche for dessert. Soo good

I attended a bridal shower brunch at the Yuca Bar but only partook in some Yuca Fries and a whole lotta white sangria. The fries were fried to perfection with a nice crunch topped with olive oil and cilantro. Lovely little snack to accompany some...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
