“Excellent East Village Restaurant for Brunch, Lunch, Dinner or Drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

All around excellent for the price. I've had at least five different meals and many mojitos and its never been less than stellar.

Expect tight quarters and elbow to elbow seating. This is probably the largest downside.

“Great food and decent servings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

The food was really great, flavourful and fresh and really great portion sizes. The sangria was ok, the coconut mojito really too sweet for me, stick with the original mojito! Service was really good.

“A favorite East Village spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Yuca Bar is genuinely one of my favorite places anywhere in NYC to go for either drinks, tapas or a full-on meal. The pan-Latin menu offers many intruiging options, and the drinks (particularly the sangria) are always satisfying. Happy hour until 8:00 pm every weekday and half price tapas on Tuesdays are worth noting. Great vibe and always buzzing with people after work during the week.

“Delish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Everything is so delicious here and randomly the yuca burger is one of the best I have ever had. Shrimp, avocado, and corn salsa on a burger?! Wow.The yuca fries are also awesome. Just like the waitress said- tastes like a mix between onion rings and french fries. Prices are amazing compared to portion size and shear deliciousness. So so so highly recommended!
