    Absolute start is the melted cheese. If you are into lean steaks, churasco is the best choice.

    Good food! Cute Place! The wait can be worked on. We waited over two hours after we were told an hour and a half. The host lost our name and seemed very confused on what he was doing.

    The filet mignon is basically free. The value for money you get at this place for the quality of steak is unparalleled. And the ambiance is great too.

    A favorite for dates, this candlelit BYOB Argentine steakhouse serves massive platters of grilled meat that make a tasty match for your own bottle of red wine. Read more

    Great jamon and queso was the best and the filet mignon leaves you speechless. ....fyi order your meat more done than normally because they tend to make them a notch more rare

    Great place for steak...they have a really cute Argentian store next door

    Expect a true Argentine experience- there's no rush, so if you want something ask! We were there 2 hours on a Monday with a large group and had to ask to place our dinner order. LOVE this place.

    Kate Larkin · September 24, 2013
  • Cody B.

    Amazing food but extremely difficult to get seated unless you have a reservation for which you need to have at least 6 people. Get the filet!

    Surprised no one ever mentioned, that the staff are jerks. Okay service, decent food. However, on more than one occasion rude service.

    Rebecca · August 31, 2013

    Giant plate of melty cheese, hot crusty bread, delicious empanadas. Yummm.

    The para dos is humongous and tasty!

    Kevo · August 19, 2013
  • Eric P.

    Seriously skip this place. Not worth 1.5 hours to get in and the 1.5 hours it took to get our food. Steaks are horrible cuts, can't cook the gnocchi at all. And the service just sucks.

    Impressive place with delicious churrasco. Definitely go for the empanadas. Best chimchurri sauce I've ever had. Byob & great service. Don't even think twice. Just eat here.

    Anthony Gomez · June 30, 2013
  • Tom A.

    This is my favorite place in the city - 2 appetizers, an entree (get the Vacio for two people!), and a dessert for under $75. Get there early or be prepared to wait!

    Very nice stake and mash

    Lots & LOTS of food. 1 dish can easily feed 2 people w/ leftovers. We got 2 dishes for 2 people & we are bringing 1 full dish home. Wonderful service, BYOW (wine) awesome food. Will definitely be back

    Marissa Ryan · April 30, 2013

    Get the fillet mignon (medium if you like - and that's how I tried it) - melts in your mouth! Delicious!

    Albert Pak · March 31, 2013

    El Filet: top notch meat

    Brian Singleton · March 12, 2013
  • Wesley

    If you have a large group (6 or more) you can call in advance and reserve a table. Portions are HUGE (you can share most dishes). Get the empanadas to start!

    Wesley · February 17, 2013

    Slow service undercooked steaks

    Avrom Litin · February 3, 2013

    Cousins swear by the Vacio on the grill with fries and lots of chimichurri. I love the veal.

    Carlos · January 26, 2013
  • Marquieta M.

    Provaleta is a really good starter also great atmosphere, music. Great for date night!

    BYOB. Bring a bottle.

    Ross Guthrie · January 17, 2013
  • Charlé W.

    When they tell you the Lomo Relleno is for 2 people, give them the hand (mentally). It's easily split between 3 full grown adults. 4 people, If you plan on having a bunch of empanadas and bread.
