The Zagat Review
“Upbeat” and “crowded” with “good-looking” types, this “colorful” East Villager mixes “better-than-average” , well-priced Pan-Latin fare with “killer” drinks; it gets “loud” and service can lag, but for “people-watching” by the open doors and windows, it's hard to beat.

This place deserves no star. Luis (who seemed like the manager) was extremely rude and unprofessional. After we walked in he immediately had an attitude. Apparently he doesn’t care about the business and doesn’t care for customers trying to spend money at Yuca. On top of that he tells his employees of the incident, like his the victim, which made the situation even worse. Some employees even got a kick out of it. I heard him say “I don’t care”. I feel bad for whatever sane person works under this kind of management. I came in to have a great time with a group of friends. I recommended the place and didn’t expect this kind of unprofessional behavior. Luis should reconsider working in the service industry. Extremely bad experience.

I came in here around 4pm and it was empty as it was right before the dinner rush. I enjoyed couple of beers on the $6 happy hour and ordered the arepas samplers. I have to say it's one of the best arepas dishes I ever had minus the street vendors in South America . The sweetness of the cornmeal and the savory of the meats was a amazing paring . I can't speak for the other dishes but the sampler was on point .

I give it this raging because My husband and I went on Friday we wanted to be seated there was plenty of empty space they told us to wait 20 minutes and to go to the bar We wanted to eat and not drink but they pushed us to the bar and the person that greeted us was extremely rude.... This place was recommended to me by a friend I must say she has horrible taste. Try to get better people to work there that are courteous and treat people better..ugh..
