La casona que alberga este almacen, nos recuerda aquellos otros que dan ambiente en Buenos Aires a los viejos almacenes de Puerto Madero. Fue edificada a partir de bloques recuperados de fincas de la Ciudad de Mexico, que en su tiempo vivieron una tardia colonia y el lujo del Porfiriato. Las cabrillas que sostiene la techumbre, fueron forjadas en 1890, segun proclama en su piel el propio hierro, lugar perfecto para comidas de negocios o placer, rodeado de calidez y confort.

Fine dining

This is a place for fine dining. Although it is known for its meat cuts and drinks, I love their salads, italian pastries and pizzas. It is fairly priced to the higher end, but dishes are well prepared, it has a nice atmosphere, good service, childrens area,and good desserts.

Visited Almacen Thursday night that happened to be Short Ribs Special. Braised for 12 hours, this short rib was probably the best we ever had. Service at this restaurant is top notch and everything we ordered was outstanding. Wine list is extensive, though 3 of our wine selections were not available, ended up trying Baron Balche 2008 Mexican wine, which... More

The food was really good, a little expensive to go every weekend, save it for special occasions or visitors from out of town. The meat was excellent

I have been in el Almacen many times and have always had a good experience, the food is really good and they usually have new items every time. If you come to San Luis Potosi, visit them

I recently visited this steakhouse. The evening's specialty was short ribs..which were melting off the bone tender, delicious. The steaks were prepared well as well. A band was playing music upstairs. All in all I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.

I'm not as impressed by this restaurant as most folks seem to be. Don't get me wrong - it's not a bad place, but I got nothing that seperates El Almacen out from any other dime-a-dozen steakhouses. I started with a beer; both my companions and the waiter highly recommended the on-tap, locally made porter. That sounded good to me,... More
