Had such a wonderful experience as this restaurant crushes the food and service categories (atmosphere enjoyable for sure). The black cod and Peruvian corn was better than what I enjoyed in Lima. All the dishes totally rocked. Best guacamole as it was eclectic and delicious.

So this restaurant came up after I googled, "NYC restaurants for birthdays", aren't I clever? Everyone there was celebrating a birthday, so they must've googled the same thing. Anyways, we were there for fours hours, ordering plate after plate of food, drinking, and laughing hysterically. Our waiter was a hoot!! Great drink selection, ceviche selection, yes the short rib is delicious. Definitely go w a group.

Very intimate and charming spot. The fish tacos, civiche, and the guacamole are the best dishes. You can't go wrong with these dishes.

Table for six and a birthday celebration. Could not have been happier with the service and the food. We were treated like family - not just saying that - and they really cared to make this a special experience. And it was.

We recently hosted a dinner party at YB to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We reserved the private room downstairs for a group of about 18 people, mostly young adults. We could not have been more pleased with the food, which was both flavorful and plentiful. And the service exceeded our high expectations. The waitress in charge of our group was very friendly and efficient and went out of her way to help me hang some celebratory decorations. The room was narrow, so mingling would have been difficult, but this really was meant to be a dining experience, so it was more than fine. (It was also nice that there were two newer bathrooms on the lower level dedicated to party guests.) The restaurant was wonderful to work with from the time of booking till the end of the evening. They helped make the night special by putting together a lovely custom menu and providing a giant sparkler candle for the dessert. Great job, YB!
