I have been going here for a while now, sometimes every week. The food is excellent, the coffee is great but the orange juice is incredible. The food is why I go back. The place isn't big but for some reason the service is poor (except the bus boys--they are super attentive). We take breaks from this place because of this. If you want good food and don't care about service, I definitely recommend it.

A friend had suggested grabbing dinner together here. I arrived early and asked the host if I could grab a table. She told me no she could not sit us unless the whole party was here. When my friend arrived and we got a table the waitress kept hovering over us. She dropped the check on us while we were still eating because her night was over. She said that she was transferring the table to another server but after we paid no one came to the table afterwards. Food was phenomenal. Bartender was great. Service was lacking.

Was at the restaurant for dinner. Tab came out to $378 w/ $55 gratuity included for less then tasty food. Paid $400 and did not ask for change. Still sitting at table drinking and asking to order more drinks when we were advised to leave, 2 hr limit at the table, that is posted on the web site. I was completely appalled at this request, never experienced such service at any establishment.

My Husband and I heard about Yuca bar and decided to try it. We usually go to their competitor located about 1 block away.The service is 100 times better there( they treat you like family) but the food is better at Yuca Bar. The staff at Yuca bar seemed to be more concerned with catching up with their daily gossip then making sure we had what we needed.Thank god the food was amazing so it made up for the lack of service.I work in the hotel industry so service is important to me.I guess on my next trip to Yuca bar my tip will reflect that.

I've gone a few times for brunch and the food is tasty but the service is consistently slow and the waitresses all have poor attitudes - which I was able to look past and continue to tip well and bring friends - until this last time. I went with two other ppl on Saturday and the host said it would be a 10 min. wait. We ordered cocktails at the bar only after 25 minutes did we notice that everyone walking in (from 2-tops to 4-tops) were getting seated right away. Still in good spirits, we asked the host about our wait time and instead of apologizing for forgetting about us, he had major attitude and said that we were a 3-top and he couldn't seat us until our 4th got there. We said there was no 4th person, it was just us, and we're all here and ready. He walked away without a word. We sat back down at the bar and then it became apparent that he had no intention of seating us at all. Another 10 minutes went by and now there were some empty tables, plus ppl walking in and getting seated, and still nothing. He wouldn't look at us and seemed on a power trip. I have no clue why, we were nothing but polite. We finally left. There is no reason to ever treat good customers that way!

hey, we,a group of about 10 go there on a weekly basis for happy hour. freddy makes the best mojitos ever. table service is a little spotty and snooty so we stick to the bar and appetizers near the open windows and we have a great time . even when it gets crowded the guests are polite and accommodating. a favorite by far.

Food was great but felt like server ignored us on too many occasions. Service gets worse the more crowded it is.
