We like certain Argentinian dishes and went there to try their mollejas and asado de tira. Very tasty dishes but it took them 45 minutes to bring the appetizer. The worst part was when we asked for our bill , they had automatically added 18% tip. I understand that the tip is for good service and one cannot be forced... More

First thing love it the restaurant decoration. The Server very nice and polite. The food really good. The chimichurri delicious, the enrollada crazy good and the vegetables and mashed potatoes awesome. The wine really good. Awesome experience. 100% recomended.

We had a family gathering here while in town for the Presidents Day weekend. My brother lives in Miami, and I've been here before with him, so I was expecting better. The steak was very average, and took a long time to arrive. We had some appetizers, which were decent, but overall, small things like not asking for more drinks,... More

We just come from that restaurant and it was terrible. The food was good but the service was the worst I'Ve ever seen. We've waited more than 15 min to have our order taken (the place wasn't full at all, it's Monday), once one of the waiters decided to take care of us he was trying to convince us to... More

Where to start. Very lively place, super service, and extraordinary food. Our wait person Carmela was outstanding and it was crowded. Always there. Food was carefully prepared and served with perfect sauces. All the trimming and the house dessert was inspired.

I'll explain my review by further detail. I had heard about this place for many years prior to moving to the area. I was always told that the food was great but you have to deal with the worst possible service in Miami. I am not a scared diner in any way so a few years back, along with some... More

This place is super cool visually. The walls are covered in cow hide but everything else is sleek and modern. The grill is open to view while you dine or while you stand outside in line (and there was indeed a line to get in). They even have a fog machine; that's how "Miami Beach" they are. The music was...

Not a very nice place, even the meat was not so good. The staff is running everywhere and is useless... don't be surprised if you have to wait 45 min for your meal... and almost the same for the check... The prices are totally overrated, even the food don't worth it.
