    The food here is friggin' amazing. Its rare you find a restaurant where everything from the appetizers to the main course to the sangria to the dessert is on point. Definitely coming back!

    All the condiments adds another flavor to this amazing steak to entertain the dinner through the night but simply with salt is still the best and you can tell how tasty the meat is.

    Great steaks, Argentinian food and Yerba mate. Also they have a good Latin American wines and drinks, and overall great for dates. The ambience is very Brooklyn-ish!

    Try their marinated olives as a side dish with Octopus and potato salad from their appetizer list and fish tacos (grilled). Cool vibe, very chill spot for singles and couples.

    By far the best short ribs I've ever had! Cocktails were also good. Great spot to take family, celebrate with friends or have a date night. Atmosphere was cozy and candle lit, and yet still lively.

    We were so happy when we left. We have tried so many things. You should try Empanadas, pulpo y rusa, tacos de castilla, molleja and finally churros

    Came for brunch on a Sunday and was so happy we did. Atmosphere is great, service was very helpful with the questions we had. The steak and truffle fries exceeded my expectations!

    so quaint. so chic. and the fact that it's argentine and run by argentines doesn't hurt. Rosarito Fish Shack and Shelter Pizza are all in the same family. reasonably priced and delicious.

    Skirt steak is a must order (is there an echo in here)? Also the artichokes that came with the salmon were scrumptious and lemony

    If you like juicy steak, no hesitations simply go for their Churrasco piece, one of the best meat I have had in New York. Their Syrah is good choice to accompany your steak.

    The Skirt steak was amazing! Among the best meat I’ve ever eaten. Service was also great. We had ceviche as an appetizer and that was also delicious.

    Charming nook with impressive wines and steaks. We ordered the skirt steak because first choice was out but it was an incredible "disappointment"! You'll want to return after your first bite!

    Hiding in plain sight right next door to Criff Dogs. Skirt steak, empanadas (ham and cheese) plus only south american wines. Excellent back patio situation.

    Get the churrasco. Now two options: get your own and split an appetizer; Or go splitties on one churrasco and sample a few apps (pulpo is dynamite)

    This place has some of the best meat in NYC, and the sauces to go with it! Also the staff is so accommodating, love this spot!

    Absolutely Amazing steak...had the ribeye (fattest thickest juiciest softest piece ever and the skirt done juuuuuust right that it melted on the tongue). Definitely recommend!

    Love truffle oil, but could barely get the ceviche down - drowning in it! Huge short rib portion. Saltiness of sauce needs a forkful of the sweet mashed potatoes to temper it - and it's awesome

    Avocado fries and steaks are no brainers. They also have a lot of fun using mate as an ingredient in cocktails and sauces

    The Parillada is the winning dish for two people. With an extra order of Mollejas and some corn.

    Perfect ribeye and the variety of selected steaks+sausages. Try the grilled vegetables as well. Nice vintage atmosphere.

    Next time you're craving a big hunk of cow, snag a table in the garden and order their parrillada. Bring a friend or two to help you finish it all and wash it down with a bottle of Malbec. -Jacqueline

    You just want some steak that isn’t crazy-expensive along with some tacos and avocado fries - and you can get all of that at El Almacén.

    Impressive: Avocado Fries - They turned out to be crescents of avocado rolled in panko crumbs and deep fried, leaving them green and creamy on the inside, and crunchy on the outside. Read more

    Share the Parrillada over a bottle of wine. Morcilla and mollejas (blood sausage and sweetbreads) are on point.

    Delicious hot chocolate & churros! Need to go there for breakfast as well. But the staff is really horrible. Every 3 mins they disturb you or directly brings you the check. Annoying.

    The guacamole is insanely good, and so is the stuffed pepper! Not a lot of veggie options, but the ones they had were great!

    Avocado fries were interesting in a good way, the hamachi ceviche with truffle oil was delightful , and the meat was plentiful and served just as ordered.

    I had chicken enchiladas. Standard dish, they did it well. However, they didn't have any wine left. Everything under 70 bucks was sold out and they had no house wine. Service curt. Atmos amazing.

    Try the avocado fries- When fried, they get admirably crisp on the outside, and imperially creamy in the interior. They're served with yerba mate ketchup which Sietsema says you don't even need

    One of the best restaurants in NYC. Surprisingly, grill are not the best dishes. Order the spinach salad, octopus, squid, tacos, fish special, ceviche, costillas de res, churros, and hot chocolate.

    Hamachi ceviche, shishito peppers, empanadas, red wine. I actually order in from here often. But the ambiance is lovely.
