Yuca "Nightmare at Yuca!!!"
Date: November 8, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, NY, NY
I went to eat at Yuca before returning home to NY. I heard it was a really good restaurant. First of all the meals are overpriced there are much nicer and better restaurants on Lincoln Road other than Yuca. I was highly disappointed the food was not tasty at all. They try to be gourmet but they are not!

Yuca "Great Food, Excellent Service"

Date: June 11, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, FL
Despite bad reviews I read today, we decided to go to Yuca at Miami Beach. The service was not just good, it was excellent. We were treated in a very curtious manner since we walked in and every time the waiter brought a place, he would come back a couple of minutes later and asked if everything was OK. The food was very good and served in a very attractive presentation.
We recommend Yuca highly.

Yuca "Indescribable"

Date: May 1, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Palm Beach, FL
Wow, I have never had worse service in my life. The waiter was horrible, rude, and unpleasant even to be around. I took the time to tell the owner/manager when I left, and he barely shrugged. I figured with the prices as high as they were, that the service would be great. You are treated better at McDonalds.

Yuca "Terrible Service, mediocre food"

Date: April 20, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Minneapolis
Yuca gives the impression of fine Cuban dining, but delivers little in the way of service or tastful cuisine. We took a group of clients and ordered the appetizer sampler (2 to be exact). We were led to believe the sampler consisted of a few items of each appetizer. In fact we were charged for every appetizer on the menu--at FULL price! Two "sampler" plates came to $150. The food was adequte--nothing fancy. Looking back the wait staff was almost comical--bus boys stealing our plates before we finished, water boys hovering over us constantly, and waiters smashing into eachother with trays (no lie--one waiter took out another with an entire tray of entrees). Why would anyone go there knowing what we know now? Skip it and try the restraunts on Espanola Way--a far better value and much more enjoyable evening await.

Yuca "Poor service at Yuca"

Date: May 16, 2004
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, New Hampshire
The service on 4/24/04 was terrible. The hostess was sullen and very apathetic. I was only served quicker when I spoke in spanish. shame... on the staff for that. The only redemming quality was the food was fabulous. I was to tired and starved to go to another restaurant. And I really wanted Latin cusine. I paid the price of being a typical white american girl who did not look rich or latin enough to get better service.

Yuca "What a treat"

Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Indianapolis, IN
If you love Cuban food and the elegance of an upscale eatery, then you will flip over Yuca. A friend of ours recommended Yuca to us and we were not diappointed. Friendly, informed wait staff and excellent food make this a place where you want to linger. From mojitoes and appetizers to entrees and dessert, every bite was savored.
