The meat is not bad but really over priced and I didn't like the way that the owner was going up and down in the place starring And he talked to his employees in a bad way in front of us. Never going back . Also Pelegrino 750ml $7... Please por favor:(

One hour and ten minutes to get our steak, incompetent waitress. They forced us to include the tip on the bill. Bad educated and terrible service. Skip this place if you can. Worst experience in Maimi Beach

To make a long story short...the owner's son is a rookie at dealing w/customers and has no clue about customer service. Our son fell asleep after we have settled, so we asked if we could bring in a small stroller despite the no stroller sign at the door...We asked and the waiter said it was ok...We insisted and he said...

We just waisted 20 min of our time for no one to care. The waiter brought the menu and then disappeared...for good. Mind you it was at 10pm on a Wednesday night, restaurant half full. It is true, their portions are huge, but whoever says their meat is great knows nothing about meat. The only way they can afford these... More

We had a nice time at LVG. The food is always great. We haven’t been back for a year and the prices went way up. $9 for fries? $6 for rice? $15 for a simple skinny sausage? The place is a tad expensive, but if 2-3 people share the Enrollada, it’s well worth it. They know how to cook steak.... More

We ordered stake and was delicious, the waitress sugestion was good exept, she didn't mention was too much for two, I think the price is a little to high, if you go, some plates are more than enough for two.

After a few times at Las Vacas Gordas I can say that: Steak is normally good, not flawless though and not consistent. Service is normally bad, that though is consistent. They want to force you to order more that a normal human can consume. We (party of three) order 2 enrollados for the guy, and my petite sister wants the... More

Gracious and unpretentious service surrounded by a very modern locale with bossa nova beats and beautiful Latin American flavors. Will keep coming back.

We went there to celebrate family members' birthdays. The service is very slow and disorganized. The waiters are showing very little hospitality and not attentive to the customers. You have to request for several times and to multiple servers to get small things, like refill the water glass. Very limited space between tables made it uncomfortable, the waitress passed my...
