We had a reservation for 7 people and was not notified that the place is closed. Not okay
It was CLOSED!!!!!
Yes. We made a reservation for the restaurant on the location on google and open table and this location does not exist anymore!!
They have the BEST guacamole in town. Good cocktails. Watermelon fries were interesting, worth the try. The meat platter for 2 was not worth ordering (the ribeye was full of fat, uneatable and under cooked, waiter did not ask for doneness; chorizo and short rib were dry dry dry; bone marrow was super greasy and had no seasoning). Very dry chicken breast in the arroz con pollo. And they ran out of the 2 desserts we wanted to order! Would go back for drinks and guacamole only.
Great service. Friendly staff. Food and drinks were perfect!
I've been here many times.
The service is wonderful.
When Paulie is tending bar, you never want to leave because the drinks are works of art.
But when he isn't the drinks are so-so.
Rebecca is charming, welcoming, attentive and gracious.
Now for the downside.
The appetizers are absolutely delicious but expensive for a tiny portion.
The large plates are sort of hit and miss.
The preparation of the main entree can be Interesting but the side dishes are extremely mediocre.
Sadly the last time my husband and I were there the rice was inedible, the beans were bland and the tostones were like stones.
I'm not giving up on this place because it has been wonderful.
So maybe it's just going through a little rough patch.
Great cocktails and food. Lobster ceviche to die for. Sampled a few different tacos and the poke belly arepas and all were fantastic.
The Guacamole was awesome but the main dish wasn't so good. I had steak from the brunch menu.
Such tasty food and fantastic drinks. Really friendly service. Loved it all!
Excellent good & great service.
Great spot to grab dinner in the West Village. I brought friends that were visiting NYC for dinner at six on a Saturday. It was pretty quiet when we showed up and we were seated right away. The restaurant filled up quickly. The service was great, as was the food! I'd definitely go back or try the East Village location.
Delicious food. A hidden gem
I went to Yerba Buena for Valentine's Day, and I was happy to see a 5-course, prix fixe menu for $85 (with a bottle of champagne or unlimited margaritas). It sounded like a great deal, but we were ultimately disappointed and wished we had gone elsewhere. The flavor of the food was great, but the portions were incredibly small and left us hungry at the end of the night. It's too bad, but I don't think I'll be coming back here any time soon.
Fantastic place! We come to Yerba Buena Perry quite often for a everyday dining as well as going out with friends. The cocktails are great, the bartender is very talented. The food and service are excellent. We strongly recommend it.
This place used to be amazing and it's really gone down hill. The spices and taste are way off as if they lost their chef. The service was slow even though the place was only 1/2 full at 8pm.
Yerba Buena was recommended to us by a friend and it lived up to the expectations! Delicious and cool atmosphere.
Delicious food. Great service. Very accommodating. Was able to change my party size with no problem one minute before my reservation.
This is a small restaurant, very intimate. I wouldn't recommend going with a group larger than 10 people. The service and food here was great. our waiter was very attentive. I went with a group of 7 people and everyone enjoyed the drinks, appetizers, meals, and desserts. We had a very good time.
Tasty food, huge portions for a NY reasonable price ($30 and under). The exception is the guacamole. While good, it was a small portion. It was also not green. Again, tasted good, but wasn't visually what one would expect. Arepas were delicious. The dinner portions were huge--from the steak to the black cod to the braised ribs. In particular, the braised ribs were very flavorful and the quinoa in place of fried rice was a perfect healthier substitute. In fact, it tasted better. You will not leave hungry. Cocktails superb and the happy hour ($8) deal is not to be missed.
Had an amazing experience here. The food was fantastic but what was most notable was the service. Our waitress was amazing! The boozy brunch special can't be beat. If you are looking for a quiet brunch this is not the place though. It is LOUD. But great spot overall.
Fun times with friends
Came here for brunch with a friend on a Sunday. It was a last minute choice to go here, but I'm absolutely glad we went! The brunch deal was great - 1 hour unlimited brunch drinks (and you can mix and match!). The mimosa was delicious and not watered down with too much OJ (!!) Definitely try the watermelon fries. They changed my life.
Marta was great!
Staff was efficient, attentive, warm and friendly!
Incredibly accommodating and attentive staff, excellent food, all around great experience!
Everything about this place is amazing. One of my top 10 restaurants.
Great place to have a bottomless brunch. The food was great!
I guess this place is overated, but the food was ok and the music was good
Food was delicious. .. Only drawback was the small portions at a $ price.
The food was very good. As a latin american I saw quality ingredients and the food was tasty. The cheese ball appetizer was terrific. Most of the portions are generous. but even as we had a reservation we had to wait half an hour
Went here for brunch. My friend and I both had the eggs Benedict. The food was amazing, but service was very slow. The noise level was also incredibly loud, to the point where we had to yell across our small table just to hear each other. My ears were ringing for a few hours even after we left. I would go back because the food is excellent.
Food is creative + delicious
My husband took me here for a date night surprise and it was wonderful! The food was fantastic and the vibe was sexy.
Went to Yerba Buena Perry early on a Friday evening on our way to a jazz set. The cocktails (mojito and Cholula) were excellent. We chose the special appetizer, which was crab "dip" served in a baked mini-pumpkin along with toasted bread. It was very flavorful. Service was prompt and attentive. This is NOT a Mexican restaurant as indicated on some of the maps, Latin American - yes, they have tacos (try the spicy lobster) - but there is really a mix of Latin American dishes.
Loved this spot!! The service was incredible! We had no idea it was happy hour and the dish I ordered was of great value and absolutely delicious. The ambience was also nice. It's a great spot to meet a friend or have a casual date. Highly recommend!
Great food! The calamari with plantains were so good. Very unique. Went with four girls for a birthday on a Thursday. Not crowded at all. So surprised bc the food was delicious. Cozy atmosphere. Great cocktails. Would be good for a date too. Highly recommend.
Food was great! People were kind. It was way too dark. We had to use our phones to be able to read the menu.
Drinks are suppppper yum the food is good too. Small tapas. Did I mention the drinks though!!!
What can be said that I didn't already rate. My friend and I had the prefixes menu with an extra special appetizer and split the 3 dishes. Plus we had the skirt steak chimichurri and deserts. All great food , amazing tastes and textures. Good place for a first date if your are out to impress. Staff was friendly , courteous and attentive. Highly recommend it.
The food and drinks were great. We opted to try several small plates, and we were not disappointed. We started with ceviche and then beef and fish tacos as well as fried avocado. All were excellent. We will be back.
