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.

Diner Reviews
  • "Very good food, friendly, eager to please staff. They were really accommodating to one member of our group who was stuck in traffic and arrived 45 minutes late.I couldn't be more pleased."

  • "Food was delicious. Sea Bass, tacos & ceviche were all excellent. Almond Quinoa Cake was yummy. Mango Panna Catta w/marshmallows was fun & innovative. Waiters picked up our dishes the moment we put down our forks."

  • "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."

  • "I came here for brunch last October and had a good experience but just went back this passed Monday for Restaurant week with my girl friends and we were blown away by how great everything was! The service was very friendly, the food and drinks were delectable, all in all a GREAT experience. Highly recommend the Arepas, Fish Tacos, and the Nina Fresa (cocktail) (a must have!)"

  • "I lost my voice screaming at my dining partner, but I'm an oldie. Suitable for young 20-somethings that want to have unlimited cocktails for an hour during brunch and Mexican eats. Food was good."

  • "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!"

  • "Way too loud for any party greater than 2 people. Food was excellent flavorful and well portioned. Beers were $6.00."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food and service were great. It's not cheap and it's really, really noisy, but we had a great time. Nicholas is a blast, and the food is interesting and creative."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I went here with my GF Saturday night. The food and drink are amazing, but it was just too dark inside the restaurant, especially in the back. The tables were candlelit, but it was not enough. We needed the iPhone flashlight to read the menu. Aside from that, I'd definitely recommend this place. Drinks are delicious, and I highly recommend the suckling pig."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Have been there a couple of times and really enjoy the great Latin-inspired food. Salmon ceviche especially nice. Service always friendly and attentive, including (on recent visit) manager Nicholas. Lively bar scene and noise level fine despite small crowded tables."

  • "We're not looking for a zen-garden like atmosphere but YBP is WAY TOO LOUD!!! NEED TO SPEAK AT THE TOP OF YOUR VOICE TO BE HEARD. Service was good, food ranged from really outstanding (the cool cocktails, my fish tacos starter, my sucking pig main) to mildly disappointing (my wife's sashimi-like cerviche starter and quinoa/kale salad main). Worth it if you don't mind the noise."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food was very good, but the service was snobby. Possibly it was because it was a trendy-ish place so most of them had an attitude. It was not a welcoming place, but again, the food was very good. Having said that, I probably won't go back. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food was great and the ambience was perfect. We were a party of 8 and everyone loved their choices. My favorites.: tuna tartare, guacamole as an app and the cod as the main. Will be back!! "

  • "The food & drinks here are amazing and the service is excellent. Love the quinoa palea!!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I wanted to take my date out for her birthday & dinner and she suggested YBP being she had been there a few times and knowing my style and energy. She made the right choice, vibrant & energetice atmosphere. Everything from the crowed enjoying a Saturday night out to the bottle of wine we choose with the help of our knowledgeable server to the great choices of food was nerar perfect. I give YBP a 9 out of 10. Only drawback i had was trouble conversating because it was a high noise level between the crowd and the music but that's to be expected when you dine at a place like YBP it's hip & trendy. I will 100% be back, if you're looking for energy along with really good food and drink this is the place."

  • "Most essential: the food is excellent. It's kinda counter-intuitive, but the watermelon fries really are exceptional (so are the avocado and hearts-of-palm...). The evening we ate at Yerba Buena, there were four large-ish parties in the restaurant, and the noise level grew and grew (more people, more need to talk loud, then the more need to talk very loud, etc); and the service was a little distracted, but if anything too quick (but with that noise, lingering pleasantly wasn't really an option...). Still: good food..."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Loved the fried watermelon and Brussels sprouts. Will definitely be coming back soon!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Yerba Buena Perry has an exciting menu with playful riffs off traditional Latin American cuisines. The suckling pig was fantastic; the appetizers were generous. But even at a small two-top with an empty table next to us, it was nearly impossible to hold a conversation over the din. This is a place that could use a serious acoustic intervention: some sound bafflers on the ceiling would be a good start. If you are looking for innovative, excellent food, this is your place. If you come with a group bigger than two, don't expect to enjoy any meaningful conversation with your meal."

  • "I went here for my birthday. I invited 8 people for brunch and they were able to accommodate. Book early because this place is super popular especially for large parties. Brunch is $15 all you can drink for an hour with an amazing drink selection, nothing cheap here. Food is outstanding."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Went with a girlfriend who's visiting that I hadn't seen in a year. Figured I'd try a new place somewhere quiet in West Village and catch up over dinner. Yerba Buena was incredibly loud, as it was the weekend before Cinco de Mayo, and the place was completely packed. Food and service was decent, but we had to shout at the top of our lungs to hear each other."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "They serve really tasty all-you-can-drink cocktails during brunch & the food was delicious although some portions were on the small side. The trio of "fries" are unique and so good! But the real treat here is the service. Our server was excellent and took very good care of our party of 10. "
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Have been here a number of times. Food is Latin inspired without trying too hard and the menu is made-up of dishes you can only get at Yerba Buena. The pork belly, black cod and chicken were delicious and the cocktails are inventive enjoyable. The service was off and the staff seemed to be bickering with each other, so that was a bit off-putting, but all-in-all Yerba Buena is on my short list and I'll be back again, soon."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Yerba Buena is hands down amazing. Their cocktails are all made with fresh fruit juice and absolutely delicious, the food is fit for foodies (latino inspired, healthy, and reasonable portions), and the prices are beyond reasonable. Add to that a charming decor and great staff, and you have yourself a fantastic spot. I'd go back anytime!"
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Food and drinks were good for the most part. The starters (guacamole, croquetas) and desserts (churros) were actually better than some entrees (I was somewhat disappointed with the arepas which were 2 very small sandwiches with not much egg or chicken inside). Drink deal was worth it as our server was good about refilling glasses frequently. However, he was not very helpful or engaging and seemed to want to rush us out as quickly as possible. He actually put the check on the table without asking if we wanted dessert! We had to ask him for it and then he had to go back and print out another check."

  • "Great food (especially the fish tacos), great staff, great ambience, all around good time. A bit pricy, but worth it."

  • "amazing food and customer service. Our party was not seated until half an hour after our reservation time, as the party before us would not leave and the owner/manager apologized profusely and sent us complimentary guacamole and champagne. the thought alone was enough to make up for the delay but the guacamole also happened to be delicious. the food was wondeful - highly recommend the trio of fries, brussel sprouts and arepas. but everything I sampled was amazing. The vibe is young, fun, trendy and energetic. I would definitely come here again and recommend it to friends. Thank you YB!"

  • "The food was amazing! Paella for two was delicious and the Short ribs were amazing. The blackberry gimlet, excellent. Rebecca out waitress and Nicolas the Manager were super friendly and attentive. Would absolutely go back or recommend to friends."

  • "I am always surprised when restaurants put out bland and flavorless food out during restaurant week. Isn't the whole point to introduce new diners to your great food, well at Yerba Buena that was clearly not the case. My starter which was the shrimp empanadas with Machengo cheese was so bland and flavorless I felt I was eating at an old folks home. I love Machengo and I love shrimp, but I could taste neither in this doughy mess. My entree was the skirt steak which although it looked delicious was again lacking any seasoning, thank god for the herbs and spices on the plate, it help, but clearly they must realize that meat needs a little salt on it! The cheese flan was tasty and went really well with the pineapple, but that was it."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Yerba Buena has a great atmosphere. The crowd is lively and the bar is lined with people. The tables are a bit close to one another but that did not bother me. Great place for a first date, or to catch up with old friends. The servers were helpful and made sure customers were all attended to. Good size portions and great menu variety."

  • "The food is always great, but the noise level is so loud that it makes it difficult to have a conversation with the person across from you. My husband will not go back and I think we will stick to their sister restaurant, Toloache."

  • "Had one of the best dinners in recent memory at Yerba Buena. The staff was perfectly attentive, and the food was delectable. No regret moving going here; and we will be back for sure."

  • "Food was very good and attentive service. Generous servings and consistently good - the steak, tuna tatare and flan dessert. My wife had the cod that was very tasty too We were on a two person table that was sandwitched between two other similar tables. A bit hard to carry a conversation"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The food was great. Waiter spilled all the juice from the plates on our coats without an apology or offer to clean up. Credit card machine was down and we were asked if we were in a rush. We asked for an estimated time and he said no idea. After 40 minutes we were able to pay but many others were stuck longer. No apologies or acknowledgement that this was a poor experience."

  • "Went here with a group of colleagues for restaurant week and it was great. The cocktails (for happy hour prices) were amazing. The 3 way fries (watermelon, hearts of palm, and avocado with chipotle mayo) were incredible. The three course restaurant week meal was perfection."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Went with a large group of friends and they gave us a long table by the window. It's a great place to bring a big group, since you can be loud and have fun and nobody cares since everyone else is doing the same. The food is amazing! Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "YBP is a neighborhood Nuevo Latino mainstay (along with Baracca). A creative menu that lures you back - to try something new or order an old favorite. Tonight the empanada's were so light and crispy - as a starter, they could have easily "weighed" down the entire meal - but they did not. The Maitre D's (Nick) table visit was warm, sincere and re-inviting. And we will come back."
