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

    55555 by Radim S.

  • Amor KGood 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.

    55555 by Erman A.

  • Bojan R.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

    55555 by Bojan R.

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

    55555 by Monica S.

  • Kate L.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.

    33333 by Kate L.

  • 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!

    33333 by Cody B.

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

    22222 by Rebecca K.

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

    55555 by Kristi D.

  • KevoThe para dos is humongous and tasty!

    55555 by Kevo

  • 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.

    22222 by Eric P.

  • Sandy R.My favorite place! This place means a lot to me and my hubby!! Great food and service!

    55555 by Sandy R.

    55555 by Anthony G.

  • 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!

    55555 by Tom A.

  • kholoudVery nice stake and mash

    55555 by kholoud

  • Marissa R.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

    55555 by Marissa R.

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

    55555 by Albert P.

  • Brian S.El Filet: top notch meat

    55555 by Brian S.

  • Ross G.BYOB. Bring a bottle.

    55555 by Ross G.

  • 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.

    55555 by Charlé W.

  • Ryan W.Right across the street from a school, so BYOB

    55555 by Ryan W.

    33333 by Juan G.

  • ISC C.There is always a line, so be prepared to wait. Excellent chimichuri, a meatlover's dream!

    55555 by ISC C.

    22222 by Benjamin F.

  • MulleBring enough booze to get seated in the back party room while you wait. Chances are, you'll meet an Argentinian couple celebrating their 50th anniversary with $250 tequila!

    33333 by Mulle

    55555 by The Dave

    55555 by Natasha

  • Richard C.I was going to try this place out but one of the workers who answered the phone, Ricardo, was extremely rude to my girlfriend. He even went as far a hanging up on her when she asked about reservations

    22222 by Richard C.

    55555 by Rosa M.

    55555 by Jessica M.

  • Ben V.The flavors, sauces, and spices were fantastic however the cuts of meat were subpar. I had a sampler of different meats/sausage. Most were tough and gristly. This place is overrated. BYOB helped.

    33333 by Ben V.

    55555 by Ashley P.

  • Eric S.Don't be fooled by the name--the "Para Uno" is more than enough for two people. Share one, along with some provoleta.

    55555 by Eric S.

  • Charlie F.Really just not worth the wait. 90 mins for a party of two is ridiculous. Sure is cheap and byob but that just means every other sucker in the world is waiting also.

    33333 by Charlie F.

    11111 by Jessi S.
