Incredible meal. We did the long form tasting plus wine pairing, and each had a cocktail. The cocktails were creative and tasty (Five Ages of Corn; Spicy Margarita; Stirred Margarita). The food was very creative, flavorful and tasty. They added a few small dishes outside of the formal menu which were really good as well. The wine pairing was perfect. And the service was very attentive and friendly. Well done! We will be back.
The food is excellent here...especially the main dishes. The wait time between courses was too much. The portions for the appetizers was way too small.
Wonderful upscale Mexican. The chef was able to perfectly blend the right amount of chili in all the dishes including the aguachili sorbet. Their sommelier found me the perfect beverage for each course and made our night very special. Cant say enough good things.
Return again a second time, this restaurant continues to wow. The corn soup pork butt, the oxtail, ceviche, all the deserts are all excellent. They also have a great wine list and good service.
This is some of the best food in NYC regardless of style. I would recommend Yuco to anyone looking for a fine dining restaurant. Highly Recommended.
We had the 3 course pre-fixe. Great value and plenty of options. The squash blossom taco was surprisingly good middle course. The braised oxtail with mole was a hearty and delicious entree. This is not a place for burritos. Come here to enjoy gourmet Mexican at its finest. We left feeling satisfied, not hungry-which is good considering the price. Lighting in the main dining area could be a little lower for a more downtown ambiance.
The most amazing food, definitely recommend doing the prix fixe with the wine pairings, they were beautiful. Was a perfect place to celebrate a big birthday.
A true michelin star kitchen! The staff was not your regular michelin star restaurant staff, which we loved. They were friendly and nice. The food was amazing we loved the amuse bouche tastings! Would definitely recommend if you are looking for mexican food with an edge.
Fantastic dimming room, comfortable seating, great lighting and lots of character. Food was complex, balanced with excellent acidity. Portions may have been a bit small in my opinion, but at the same time I didn’t feel like I overate, so that’s good too. I highly recommend this restaurant and would certainly return!
YUCO should be a Michelin one star restaurant. At least. Not just the quality of the food, but the creative combination of intense flavors; the presentation (including the design of dish ware — especially glassware — crockery, and utensils); the quality and enthusiasm of all service staff, who clearly love their work and this restaurant make the dining experience not only supremely satisfying but also a uniquely pleasurable and memorable experience. We did not have to drink wine as the cocktail concoctions provided one delight after another and they always complemented whatever course was being served. Wizardry is a likely explanation. Simply a treasure.
Amazing food, a lovely experience esp for our anniversary. It was a once in a lifetime experience. And the level of detail and culinary artistry was unmatched. And the stirred Margarita was the best drink we have ever had.
You want to pay a lot for no food? Go here
This may be the best Mexican restaurant in town. The three course pre fixe for $95 was good to excellent. We had the Flor en Nogada (squash blossom, sweet plantain, prickly pear, walnut cream source. Excellent. The Lobster and Rajas was very good, though the lobster was a little rubbery. The Heritage Chicken Tamal was fine, though not in keeping with the other dishes. It was a little dry. The chocolate desert was excellent, along with the granite. Cocktails were quite good. There is an excellent wine list though there could be more to choose from in the under $100 category. Service was outstanding.
Amazing, top shelf experience, Michelin style dining, chefs are obviously well trained, presentation was posh, highly recommend
Amazing food! Highly recommend it
Food was excellent! I had the ceviche (wish it were slightly bigger) and the lobster (which was a perfect portion). I also had the chocolate dessert, which is probably one of the best desserts I’ve ever had! We all enjoyed the food immensely. Great decor too.
While the appetizers were extraordinarily delicious, the main dishes left a lot to be desired. The lobster was tough and seemed undercooked and almost inedible; the scallops were tasty but overly salty. The service was quite attentive but we felt almost "bullied" by the waitress to get the most expensive items and treated with some disdain for not choosing to order the way she recommended, which made the dining experience unpleasant. That said, the cost of the lobster was removed from our bill, which was quite gracious. The chocolate dessert was really inventive and complex.
This place is exceptionally good! Just go and enjoy!!
An incredible food journey through the Yucatán. Some of the most delicious and inventive dishes I’ve experienced recently. The setting, ambiance and service were impeccable. Relaxed and courteous, charming and elegant. Can’t wait to go back.
Unique experience, servers very qualified, incredibly food and unbelievably drinks.
Great service and presentation of the food but the taste was not that great considering how small and expensive the dishes were. I was excited to try the corn cocktail but didn’t like it much. They’re obviously putting a lot of effort into making this place nice but the food just didn’t do it for me.
This was easily one of the best restaurants we’ve been to in NYC. The food was incredible - molecular gastronomy at its finest. The service was outstanding - attentive but not overbearing. The sommelier provided thoughtful pairings to each course. The ambiance was chic and refined.
It may have been the most expensive “Taco Tuesday” I’ve ever had, but it was worth it.
This was a romantic getaway weekend and the absolute perfect dinner experience! This ranks easily as the best modern Mexican meal I’ve ever had, and as one of my top three meals of all time! The food hit all of the marks - presentation, flavor, texture, balance, portions, etc. High praise to the Chef and the kitchen team! The bartender did an amazing job on an amazing drink - the 5 ages of corn. Joseph was the perfect host-maître'd-waiter. (Not sure his real title but he was super helpful and accommodating with educating us around our food choices and requests!) The ambiance was amazing too, with fine attention to details on all design elements - not sure why this is not yet a Michelin star. We will definitely be back!
Food is good, not great. Portions are small. I love the concept, they need to fine tune the food and service though. Worth checking out.
We had a great date night dinner at Yuco! Refined, unique, and absolutely delicious food. Everything we tried had great flavors and textures. Don't skip dessert. The service was attentive, warm, and friendly. Incredible cocktails and knowledgeable staff. Refreshing to see a fine dining destination that is outside the box and learned a bit about Yucatan cuisine to top it off. We want to go back to try other dishes!
10/10 all around! Astounding modern twist on Mexican cuisine. Food very tasty and more importantly super pleasant, attentive and professional service. The cocktails are a feast for the eye as well as the soul.
Phenomenal food and service. Top notch in every way, even for NYC.
Yuco has succeeded in creating a fine dining experience for Mexican-inspired food. The service, the platings, and the food itself were outstanding. My only suggestions are more of the homemade tortillas to soak up the sauce on the entrees and maybe a little more time in between courses to allow yourself time to savor what you've just eaten. And don't forget to order a cocktail off their unique list - I discovered corn whisky last night and its the perfect, lighter version of a more traditional whiskey which is perfect for a hot, summer night.
Amazing ambiance. Experienced, nice staff. Sophisticated delicious food.
interesting, artistic, memorable and delicious - a breakthrough for mex food
Great experience! Would not be surprised if Yuco is awarded a Michelin star next year. Very creative dishes and the Somm is fantastic.
The service & food is outstanding here - lots of nice little details. Everything we tried was delicious- do not miss out on the oxtail with mole.
Yuko was wonderful. We had a great time and the food was delectable. We will be adding this restaurant to our regular dinner rotation, assuming we can still get reservations as people discover this lovely, delicious restaurant.
Wonderful experience! Food was interesting and excellent. Great service, we felt very well taken care of.
Hostess to be replaced. Busy or flirting with someone at the bar.
Table service very good.
Cocktails are fun and creative.
Food good and well presented. Portions however are really minimal. They need also to work to serve warm food warm… it arrived most of the times cold. Plates need to be warmed up.
Desserts are a must to try. They are special
Prices very very high.
Hi Antonella, We know you were very upset that we could not seat your dog in the main dining room. We are dog lovers as well and it was obviously very upsetting to you. Unfortunately, health code prevents dogs, even cute ones, from being around an open kitchen. Obviously sitting at the bar wasn't quite the same but it was the best we could do given the regulations. Thanks for stopping by, and yes, we agree, the desserts are great!
Amazing food and service. Highly recommend for a really unique and upscale dining experience.
Very refined Mexican cooking beautifully presented in an attractive setting. The kitchen is a bit slow but we were there only on the second night they were open.
The food here is very good though perhaps a little too precious.
