Came here on a Sunday evening to celebrate my birthday. Discovered it simply by its good reviews. We weren't disappointed. The restaurant was not too busy and Juanelias, our waiter was really lovely. We are from England so he helped us out by telling us the best route to get back to our hotel right before we left.
Portion sizes are large and the good is tasty and varied. The restaurant also has a happy friendly vibe. A really nice find.

Thank SPDLondon

Very nice little spot with excellent service & great food. I recommend the Arroz con pollo & the calamari for a appetizer

My wife and I dined here a few evenings ago. Started with mojitos.... absolutely delicious; never had a better one! We were expecting good things but were almost overwhelmed by the quality of the tasty seasoned dishes and very friendly staff. Kudos to our server Yvette. She made an enjoyable evening better with her warmth, attention to detail, and efficient service. We eat at a lot of good restaurants in New York City but Yerba Buena will go down as one of our all time favorites. We'll be back every time we get to the city. Many thanks to the chef and all the staff!

Quaint little restaurant with excellent food - sufficient choices to meet most appetites. I ordered the carnitas special which was spicy, tasty and good.
