This is a cute, little latin american restaurant. We usually order from the tapas menu & share. Sharing is Caring!! There isn't one thing we've ordered thus far that we haven't liked. The yuca burger is a must try if your in the mood for a burger. It has tasty shrimp in it & we order it with manchego cheese.... More

I visited at 10 AM on a weekday morning for brunch. I had a tasty Spanish-style egg dish, garnished with a few greens, which included a good Bloody Mary and coffee. The service was excellent, but I cannot help thinking that for the East Village, a $25 breakfast is too pricey.

I came into the restaurant on Wednesday this week with a few of my friends for a birthday dinner. It was a little crowded when I came in but the hostess took my name and told me a table would be available in less than 10 minutes. It wasn’t even 5 and he came back over to seat my party.... More

One of my regular and favorite nabes. Tasty food and a friendly atmosphere. The huevos rancheros are dynamite.

I lived less than a block away from Yuca Bar and from the beginning it was always a great place to brings friends for drinks. The tapas is great, especially if you're not looking for a full meal with drinks. Out of town visitors loved the constant flow of people passing by outside and around Tompkins Square Park. However when... More

I have gone three times to this bar. You have to keep in mind that this is a bar, so that means it is loud and service maybe is not that hands on. Said that, food is great. We always have tapas and some of them are big as an entrée. Our tipical order is the amazing ribs, tacos or... More

We finally had a chance to have lunch at Yuca today, after bookmarking it a really long time ago. The good: Food is nicely presented and for the most part really tasty. My husband's pancakes were quite good, my daughter had the special egg scramble in a corn arepa (hopefully I spelled that correctly) and it was definitely the best... More

Hello, Very tasty food, good drinks, very crowded. Staff was inattentive, my wife asked for water and never got it after we paid our bill, it was like we didnt exist. Still the food was great, very tasty. Shame the staff takes away from what it could be a great dining experience.

We just happened upon this place while on Avenue A desperately looking for cheap drinks and a bite to eat! We were lucky enough to be there on the day they have half priced appetizers, and boy were they delicious. We looked around at other people's plates and they also looked great. I only wish we could have gone back... More
