Try it, you'll like it.

Great service at a leisurely pace. Delicious food, especially if you like beef. Enjoyed the outdoor seating.

Food was excellent. Service was top notch. Good wine list. Reasonable prices and great atmosphere. Highly recommend to anyone to try this one in an area that has many good resturants.

I've been trying to avoid steak in my diet, but this place sent me right off the rails. Everyone knows that nobody cooks steak as well as they do in Argentina and Brazil, and this restaurant is a prime example of how incredible the former cuisine can be when prepared correctly. The steak could almost be cut with a butter... More

The Argentine reputation for steak was the initial allure of coming here, particularly as a choice for an anniversary dinner. While staff was accommodating in 'reserving' a preferred two-top despite emphasizing a no reservations policy, if I had a second chance I'd go elsewhere. The sangria was tasty but tepid (more ice on a warm night would have been nice).... More

Went here once in the wintertime, and was serenaded by an acoustic guitar player and a tango dancing couple. This time, it was a hot summer day, and we ate outside on a nice patio overlooking Forbes block. Biscuit like rolls with chimichurri relish arrived. The heat of the sauce was nice to match with our beverages. Appetizers consisted of... More

I've been to Caminito a few times, and I always have a pretty good experience, although I may find them a bit expensive for what you get. Their chimichurri with bread is a good starter to the meal, although the rolls could be a bit crisper. For a starter on my most recent trip, I had the chorizo, which wasn't... More

First visit to this restaurant. Can't understand the negative reviews! Made reservations for 6 pm Saturday and the 4 of us arrived early and were seated quickly. Stayed indoors as a storm was expected but deck seating looked inviting. Great waitress who answered our menu questions enthusiastically. 2 thumbs up to the asparagus appetizer- yum. My filet with mustard sauce... More

My husband and I were really looking forward to trying Caminito after we purchased a Groupon. We were early for our reservation, but one of the wait staff was very accommodating and sat us early. That was the best service we received the rest of the evening. We were seated for almost 10 minutes before we were greeted by a... More

We have been here 3 times and never have been disappointed. The staff is very friendly, even when they are busy. If you are looking for a quick place to have dinner, this is not the place. Each meal is made in a wood fire oven, so it isnt quick, but it is worth the wait. Desserts are home made... More

Recently visited with family. We were seated immediately. The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. On that day they seemed to only have two waitresses and two cooks. Inspite of this the food was excellent and the waitresses were attentive. We enjoyed the steaks, crepes and ravioli. We also had appetizers and dessert. All of which was great. Would come... More
