After reading some of the reviews I was hesitant about trying this restaurant. We were a party of four. We ordered the rolled steak which can easily be shared by two. The quality of the meat was very good, it was cooked perfectly fine and very tender. We ordered fries, empanadas, and an ensalada Rusa. Everything was great. They have... More

We ate here based upon the recommendation of our hotel clerk. What a mistake or, more appropriately, mis-steak! We called ahead to make reservations and when we arrived I re-confirmed our name with the Hostess. I had spoken to them when making the reservations and mentioned it was my husband's Birthday. I agreed to pay extra for the celebratory event... More

I almost did not go due to some negative reviews. I'm glad I didn't pay attention to them. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday & we will certainly go back. Great atmosphere, food & the server, Edyta, was very attentive. The owner sincerely wanted to hear all about our experience.

We thought the food was very good, however the waiter was very pushy. He insisted we order way more food then we needed or really wanted. Pricey

A week ago, me and my husband were celebrating our anniversary and decided to visit the restaurant. We ordered an appetizer and the main course. They never brought us bread, so we asked for it, then when it came I asked for olive oil, 15 min later she brought me balsamic vinegar and never the olive oil. We could never... More

$5 per person to share a steak that's one and a half pounds - do they expect 1 person to finish it alone? Then another $5 if you want to take a small container of chimichurri sauce home with your leftover steak - otherwise you have to mix it in. And another dollar for Mount Sinai Hospital (if they ever... More

One of the worst experience ever. They tried to sell you things you don't want,service horrible,no fresh ingredients,you ask for something and they won't listen to you. The ambient is sad and cold.There are tons of better choices.i'll strongly not recommend to anyone.

Ordered the flagship steak. It was excellent. And a bargain at $30. Of course. When I had asked the waitress which steak they recommended I was pointed towards the $150 Kobe beef. Obviously... We were asked if we wanted any veggies. My friend ordered some veggies, he got a mixed grill for $15. Every steak house I've ever been to... More
