Killer Steak

I had one of the single best steaks I've ever had at this place. They are an argentinean restaurant right on 5th. Might be a bit pricey for mexican standards but for international rates it's not bad at all. Their grilled vegetables salad is also really good.

Service is terrible! Incredibly slow. 25 minutes just to get drinks, then a whole hour to get the food. I don't know why people are lining up here, the food was not out of the ordinary. It took so long to get the bill in the end, I had lots of time to write this glowing review. Overall, bad experience,... More

Our group of four was strolling Fith Ave last Monday evening and decided to drop in El 10 Restaurant for dinner. Having been there in past years we knew it would be a nice meal. Nothing too fancy but good. The restaurant has a sister restaurant next door that is a sea food place so you can order off either... More

The first and the only time I write feedback on restaurant. Besides their great location in the 5th avenue their is nothing positive with this restaurant. Very Expensive restaurant for nothing. You need to know how to make a steak and they just don't know, It was burned outside and totaly rare inside. My wife didn't eat nothing and the... More

The service was not appropriate for the price of dinning at this place. It was too hot and humid so we decided to sit inside with air-conditioning. We rarely saw the waitress and when we asked for assistance with our drinks she could not help. We asked for a typical Mexican drink a "Michelada" consisting of a beer with lemon... More

This is an argentinian restaurant that is favorite to my carnivore friends. They all praise the steaks there and say the meat is very good quality. As a vegetarian, I usually take their pizza/pasta which are no bad, and the wonderful oven baked corn and cheese empanadas which is very well made. They also have some nice salads on the... More

We found this place at the end of our holiday and it was brilliant, Cheap steaks and the chimichurri was amazing!!! Wine was good too and all reasonably priced.great service and great atmosphere. The hostess is a bit crazy. Chasing you down if you just walk to the tables but you can understand her stress!

Three of us decided to try this restaurant as we walked around Fifth Avenue. The menu had a lot of variety for all different tastes. One of us got the grilled grouper with veggies, one got the grilled salmon with rosemary potatoes, and the last got the Spaghetti Bolognese. All were great, and the portions were ample but not overwhelming.... More

We decided to try this 5th Ave Parrilla after seeing that they had empanadas on the menu. In our party of three, two had the skirt steak specials. They arrived on a wooden platter piled with french fries, salad, potato salad, lentils, caramelized onions, grilled chile, and of course, the steak. One of our party asked for medium rare, and...
