This restaurant is permanently closed. Yerba Buena presents an innovative take on Latin cuisine. Located at Avenue A in the East Village, the menu features an array of unique exquisite dishes freshly prepared by the Chef Julian Medina. He works his magic to blend exotic flavors from Cuba, Peru, Chile, Mexico, and Argentina in an open kitchen visible from the dining room.

The Cockteleria Clasica (classic cocktail bar) includes a list of signature handcrafted cocktails such as the popular Poquito Picante created exclusively for Yerba Buena by top shelf Mixologists. Owner Giovanny Campos has carefully and tastefully selected an extensive wine list from Argentina, Chile, Spain, and United States.

We invite you to join us for a memorable and a one of a kind experience!

They're closed until Spring 2018. I made this reservation, showed up, and saw the sign letting me know.

We came in to Yerba Buena for a fun weekend brunch and it did not disappoint!! Great unlimited brunch drink deal ($16 dollars for fun brunch cocktails). Delicious Latin inspired brunch food with an appropriate price point. Wonderful service-- they definitely wanted us to have a good time and kept the drinks and smiles coming. There was a fun youthful crowd and good Latin pop/hip hop music playing but it didn't have an aggressive 'brunch club' vibe. They're moving locations but I hope they keep this same menu and staff-- we left saying that Yerba Buena is our new classic brunch spot for when our group of friends is all in town.

The botanas were amazing, but the dinners were disappointing. My husband's short ribs came on a bed of grape tomatoes--impossible to cut. The shrimp in my chaufa was so fishy--not at all fresh. Drinks were good.

I believe we had a new waiter at the section we had been seated. He was very nice but still a bit unfamiliar with the menu but the staff assisted him with providing us great service and making us feel very comfortable. The food was delicious, drinks were full of flavor with the right mix of liquor. I definitely would go again. Highly recommended for a nice date night!

Food was amazing, but it's such a small restaurant. I recommend making a reservation. Don't expect it to be too comfortable.

Drinks were okay, I had the pisco punch, but it was alright. I

The food was great. The table we were seated at was under a speaker. Our waiter could not great us and messed up our orders 3 times. Also, the wait staff hovers a bit too much. With that said, I would go back anytime...Just wouldn't sit at that table.
