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!
Brought my mom here for post thanksgiving brunch! Always a great time!
A must when we visit NYC! Love the service and food is exceptional.
The experience was overall amazing. The food and service was great.
Servizio premuroso, buon cibo, locale molto caldo.
Rumoroso ma è il tipo di locale.
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.
Awesome food, amazing drinks, and the staff is very friendly and easy going. All around a great time for a start to a night out.
Fantastic food with a great vibe. The food is very modern, clean and really flavorful. Try the Sangria it is wonderful.
As always a special experience, amazing service and atmosphere, excellent food, drinks and wine.
Had a really great experience . Food was amazing and our host was incredible and very accommodating. Will come back soon!
This place is a really fun joint on the lower east side. As soon as I walked in, I got a warm feeling of the space. The staff was friendly and let me tell you, the drinks were s-t-r-o-n-g. Order the Yerba Mate Cocktail. It's herbal, slightly sweet, and well balanced. Something I could have continuously sipped on all night. But I didn't because after I got up from one I realized how strong it was. The food was delicious as well. I had the carnitas which is served with a nice amount of tortillas. My friends had the steak which, to their words, "was cooked almost too perfectly". Bottom line, try this place out. It's small, but it's fun.
Great time everytime. A little louder than usual on weekends though but the food does not dissapoint.
Great food and great service at a reasonable price. Good wine choices. One course did arrive a little cold. But it was still mighty tasty. And I'd still go back. There a few restaurants in Manhattan I've hit more than once or twice because there are so many. But Yerba Buena is one.
Nice place for Latin food. Appetizers and ceviche are very good. Nice drink selection and the service was great. Plan to return soon.
Great place for a date night or dinner. I was surprised how quiet and cozy it was (but maybe we just got lucky) the cocktails were sublime and the food really tasty. Chips and guac are great, totally worth the hype. Our server have great attitude and knowledge about the food and cocktail menu.
Came on a Thursday evening and was surprised at how quiet it was since it always seemed packed on days I've walked by. Sat at the bar for dinner even though we had made reservations. The bartender was nice but not super attentive. We ordered the gin and jalepeño cocktail which tasted really fresh and had a strong, hot kick to it. The food was also good. Shared the salmon ceviche which was more like a carpaccio, but had a great flavor. We both ordered the cod with Peruvian corn which was also good. It was flakey with a nice crisp skin. The corn was a bit greasy but not too bad. One man who I think was the general manager came over twice to ask if we enjoyed everything. Overall the experience was good. It was a nice place to check out but it probably won't be a place I go regularly.
