We loved this restaurant, I don't know why there are negative reviews about this place, we had the most amazing experience. Recommended by our host who lives just a few hundred yards from where we stayed. The staff were very attentive and efficient, we were seated right away, given wine list and food list, ordered bottle of wine, came within... More

we loved the food at the restaurant, we ordered chorizo, sausage and empanada for appetizers and 3 different kind of steaks, fries, vegetables for dinner. The food was great but the kitchen is very very slow. If you can be patient and go there and wait you'll enjoy the food, make sure you don't over order. The portions are big... More

Went with my family to celebrate my sisters 46th birthday. The atmosphere was fun and hip, the Sangria was wonderful and the Chimichurri provided was to die for. It alone was worth the visit. Everything we got was delicious. We tried pork, beef and chorizo sausage. All of the food is large enough to split. I would definately return for... More

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
