Great Customer Service, Yummy Food, Awesome Cocktails...

Had just arrived in South Beach and took a walk from the Gansevoort. Somehow found the Lincoln Rd Mall by chance and decided to take a chance when we saw the menu outside. It was the first time we were asked how the salmon should be prepared. Salmon?!!! Man, I was wondering how good it would be if they paid so much attention to detail. My fiance loved the salmon and I loved the Churassco..I admit I tried her sal... view more

Flavorful authentic Cuban

We loved this restaurant. Based on past reviews from 2006 and before, we assume this restaurant is now under new management or has a new chef de cuisine. Let me first say that we ate here during Miami Spice, which is basically Restaurant Week everywhere else but lasts 2 months in Miami. The prix fixe menu is smaller portions of appetizer, entree and dessert for $36. The waiter was a little resistant to us ordering ... view more

it was just right...

I have just returned from Miami and my 1st night there I decided to give myself a treat. Yucca was just right.\r I had a passion fruit (parcha) mojito that was fabulous and an appetizer as my meal which was just the right portion since it was already 10pm. I had the Seafood Puteria and it was certainly tasty, not bland. I will also add that the presentation was just as good and made my dinner even more of a treat... view more

don't waste your time or money

Yucca is not only ridiculously overpriced, but its food is far below mediocre. They should be ashamed to butcher Cuban cuisine in Miami. Portions were small, as was the flavor. I'll give them credit for creativity, but there's a difference between simply putting interesting foods together, and putting interesting foods together to achieve interesting flavors. I really don't understand what all the hype is about, ... view more

Poor service

This would have been a wonderful experience if not for the snooty waiter. It started when we decided to have two appetizers and split an entree - we are not big eaters - we do not live in Florida so could not doggy bag leftovers and I will not waste food. First thing the waiter says - we have a charge for splitting entree - fine with us we said. After that he proceeded to slam stuff on the table - the rest of t... view more

Tourist Trap

What can I say about a place that serves glorified TGIF's cuisine at 5 star prices? How are they getting away with this? I'm only in town for a couple of nights, and was looking for innovative Latin cuisine. This is most definitely not it. Terrible food. Mediocre slop.. Stale bread. Stale plantains. Overcooked fish. No flavor. And at $30 an entree?! Give me a break. Please, please, PLEASE do yourself a favor and walk... view more

Quite Different

Definetely not traditional Cuban food but cuban food unlike I've ever had. Allow yourself to be led into a surprising yet fullfilling experience. The music show on Saturday nights was awesome.
