Sangria was great as well, I got a good nights sleep ha Service: Friendly and very attentive. Michael was our waiter, cool guy :) Atmosphere: small intimate space, dimly lit... More

I just spent $65 for a meal that was tasteless. I've been to Argentine restaurants many of times. My friend and I decided to try this one. My skirt steak was tough in some spots and rubbery in others.The chimmichurri was not made right. You could not taste hardly anything in it--it was so bland. The potato salad (salad russa)... More

We had a family lunch here on Christmas Day and everyone loved the food. There were 11 of us and there was something for everyone, even the kids. Our favorites were the morcilla appetizers, the fresh grilled fish, pasta Alfredo and chorizo. It's a small restaurant and on the day we were there it was full of families. Nice service,... More

Based on previous reviews, my husband and I decided to try this place and we were disappointed. Really I would give the place a 2 1/2. The meat empanada was okay. The calamari seemed like it was bought frozen and very chewy. The skirt steak was okay but the shellfish paella was not at all seasoned and had way too... More

We stopped by tonight without a reservation. They were very busy, but made room for us. We ordered from the list of specials. For appetizers we ordered the aparagus special and the clams and mussels special . Both were excellent. For dinner, we shared a whole branzino with paprika and rosemary, superb. One of the best meals we've had in... More
