A bit too busy and loud for my taste. Good menu and portion size for meat lover. But for me , a bit too much meat and boring.

We stopped in early on a Monday evening as we had heard that it can get crowded and busy. The service was very good and helpful. The atmosphere was about what we expected for an Argentinian restaurant. The food was flavorful, but my son and I found our bone-in ribeye steaks to be a little tougher than one would expect....

The ham & cheese empanadas come highly recommended. The menu does offer black sausage(blood sausage) and beef sweetbreads, I usually like to try foods associated with the cuture. HOWEVER, I chose the filet, that others had recommended. The serving size was very generous, served on spinach mashed potatoes. The steak was very tender and flavorful. My friend had the flank...

I recently visited this restaurant and found it to be a place I will not visit again. Although the food and service were good you are actually timed and asked to leave after your time is up. If I am paying out hundreds of dollars for food I don't think I should be told when to leave so that the... More

We waited 2 hours to eat at this restaurant. It would have been that it was posted some where that this restaurant does not have a bar. BYOB

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighborhood Profile
Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
