We went for my friends birthday. The service is a little slow but the food is great. Enrollada is best value. Some things are pricey, but if you penny pinch go eat BK.

I was astonished by such a poor service and overall management of the place. If someone out there is going to read this I highly suggest you to never come to this restaurant for your health.

Got a nice 70$ surprise for an single steak item that WASN'T ON ANY MENU and was recommended by the waitress. After talking to the waitress and several people they washed their hands about the whole deal and "took the tip off" like it did anything. I really regretted taking my girlfriend there. I definitely DO NOT recommend this restaurant.... More

I was there today, 10/11, for my birthday after many years. We got there around 6pm, the indoors area was half full and outside empty. We opted to seat outside because the weather was very nice. I was impress with the changes made. Before, I would have never wanted to seat inside but now its pleasant. As for the service...I... More

There's steakhouses, then there's Argentinian steakhouses, then there's las vacas gordas!!!! I've been many times and to be honest the service could be better sure but go for the steak! There's no better skirt steak anywhere! The provoletta is amazing and the wine list was great. Chimichuri is heavenly. Have to respect a business that's been successful in the same... More

Came in short after they opened. The Restaurant was half empty, they did not allow us to go in with the stroller! It was not our plan to spend all the evening at the restaurant and we understand, if the restaurant would be full, you can't go in with a stroller. But since they have only Baby seats which are...

I went with my family on a Sunday night. As soon as the waitress came she explained the meat cuts, so far so good, then we ordered a bottle of wine that was $40, her face changed completely maybe she was expecting us to spent more. She took the order and we shared parrillada and skirt steak (portions are huge)... More

As frequent travellers to South Beach we decided too go with 4 of us to this restaurant. It really is a shambles but nevertheless still a popular place , i do not know why. We were hesitant because of some of the negative reviews but decided to still give it a try. The music was too loud , it took... More

The worst service and stressful experience. Besides the hard to find parking, all this place care about is your money: they will do whatever takes to overcharge you, make you order more food than humanly possible to eat, will apply any gratuity they want ( but don't deserve) and no matter how reasonable you try to be, they will never...

Its a good place to have dinner, but every side dish is charge separately. The waiter didnt care to much about us purchasing the house wine. She really want us to spend more money on another wine. But the house wine was $32.00 per bottle and it wasn't bad.
