A word from Yerba Buena Perry
Chef Partner Julian Medina and restaurant group YB & Co introduce Christopher Gilman and their newest Latin hot spot, YerbaBuena Perry. Located at One Perry Street in Manhattan's West Village. YerbaBuena Perry is a chic 55-seater that stirs up an era gone by-1950's Cuba. The restaurant features Julian Medina's reinterpreted Cocina Latina cuisine complemented by signature cocktails, many made with Yerba Buena, a latin mint.

YerbaBuena Perry transports guests from the West Village to an exclusive club in Havana with a feel that is retro yet chic and sophisticated. Designer Welly Lai outfitted the space with floral wall coverings in sea foam hues and leather banquettes, setting a mood of elegance. The restaurant's focal point is an expansive hand-carved bar with an Italian marble top.

Julian Medina's cusine evokes Peru, Cuba, Argentina, Colombia, México and Spain. Yerba Buena Perry's menu includes Ceviches, Tacos, and Parrillada, an Argentine mixed Grill.

    A close friend recommended Yerba Buena to us. We had a wonderful evening hosted by Michael. Make sure to start out with a selection of one of their truly creative cocktails. The ceviche and fish tacos are great starters along with the truly yummy avacado croquettes. The black cod main course with kale incorporated into the flavorful sauce was amazing. Five stars for this Latin American dining experience!

    I went there with 10 girls, and we had the time of our lives....the service was amazing. The food was delightful. I highly recommend the empanadas, and the A La Parilla rib eye. I cannot sing it's praises enough. I had so many challenges getting this group together for a time and the restaurant really was so very accommodating and so very easy to work with....It is now one of my new favorite places in NYC and as a meeting planner, it's a pleasure to dine here....thank you for such a wonderful experience!

    Thank you for a wonderful brunch on Saturday - you kept the bellinis flowing continually without even asking and the one on the house at the end was a nice touch. It is also a great spot for celiacs due to all the rice and beans and corn tortillas so thank you. Will definitely come back.

    I have been here several times-each time with a big group-for brunch. I celebrated my birthday here in February and have since returned with friends who were present for my birthday. We all love it. The drinks are great, the food is great and generally speaking the service is really good. Everyone is friendly and welcoming.

    Dinner at Yerba Buena Perry was a treat. The guacamole was exceptional as were the two small plates that I ordered after finishing the appetizer. I enjoyed a spicy pork dish served with coleslaw on a bun and the calamari was wonderful. My waitress was friendly and very professional and it made for a very good evening. This restaurant is usually bustling, but I guess on a late summer's evening the place was less than half full. This is a great spot to visit in the West Village.

    The food was delicious- we tried the empanadas, fish tacos, beef short rib and quinoa kale dish- all excellent. Tried a couple specialty cocktails, I had the blackberry gimlet, it was also very nice. We also had the trio of fries, we thought it was just ok. The restaurant was quite dimly lit and we had to back to our car to grab our jackets, the A/C was really pumping. Am definitely looking forward to a return visit:)

    All I can say is WOW. Their food is AMAZING. My first time here I came for their unlimited brunch with a group of friends, my second time I took my mom to dinner. I had a great experience each time. Their wait staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Their restaurant week menu was delicious. Great for brunch, dinner, and happy hour. I would recommend making reservations because this place is popular and fills up fast. If you forget to book a spot, it's definitely worth the wait.

    I regretted not getting the restaurant week menu because I wanted more - but I had the Atun Ceviche and the fish tacos - they were incredible! The fish tacos had this great, flavorful coleslaw on it and it had a small kick. The fish was fried perfectly. The ceviche was tangy and delicious. Cocktails were incredible - each of my friends had a different one - all great. The Sandia drinks was incredibly fresh. We couldn't stop talking about how fresh everything tasted. At the end we had an after dinner small mojito and were given coupons for our next time. Really great service as well.

    At first we were worried about the food because we couldn't smell the flavor that we are so used when going to Latin restaurants, but I have to say we were impressed by what we ordered. Our appetizers/entrees/desserts were so full of the right ingredients and flavors that made our mouths more watery. We highly recommend this place. A bit tight but highly recommend it.

    However, the dining experience was adversely impacted by the decibel level. Could hardly hear the waitress and ourselves; conversation of any depth or value was impossible. Thankfully, the food occupied a good chunk of non-verbal time! Trio of fries consisted of lightly battered and fried wedges of hearts of palm, avocado and watermelon, with a spicy mayo and a smokey mate-flavored ketchup. Texture alone was intriguing, but the dips changed and enhanced the 'fries' as well. One of the highlights of the evening. We ordered RW menu, and the food was beautifully presented and cooked, obviously not suffering from lack of attention just because it was RW. Our waitress was awesome, everyone was generally friendly and professional.

    My friend and I came here for restaurant week and had the most amazing experience. We were seated immediately and the waitress came right over and was very attentive all night, making sure that we had food at all times and that our wine glasses were always full. In addition to the great service, the food was perfect. the apps were just the right size. Each entree was great. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly and melted like butter in my mouth. The sea bass had crispy skin and the fish was still flaky.

    The food is terrific. Of the 4 items on the menu, each one was top-notch. However, the chef's talents get drowned out by the decibel level, so we will not be going back. A lively place is good. But when you combine loud music, lively bartending (shaking the drinks was an event unto itself, if you happened to notice it above the rest of the noise), extremely packed-in tables (like many NYC restaurants), and nothing on the floor/walls/ceiling to absorb the noise, it is painful to the ears and distracts from the experience. Customers at other tables were screaming just to converse with others in their party, which resulting in an evening of listening to others' conversations. Waitstaff practically had to yell. They should focus-on food!

    While the hostess was very nice, the rest off the staff was slow. Steak came over cooked. Server brought the drinks very slowly when we were there for the unlimited drink brunch. They also brought the wrong drinks/ drinks that were supposed to be the same but there was a clear day and night difference between them. I have been here before and it wasn't like this, just a disappointing brunch this weekend.
