This is apparently the place to be for lunch and dinner in the business area of Santiago. Crowded at all times. There is a large choice of dishes and good service (quick and efficient). Quality of the food is what one expects (good but nothing fancy).

I went there with a colleague and we had a great meal. The steaks were cooked to our liking and they did an excellent job in recommending a wine to match our meal. I will definitely go back.

This is the place to take clients you want to impress and great for large family gatherings also. Excellent cuisine, a very good wine list and professional service in a restaurant with comfortable upscale ambience. We were a big family of all abe groups and everyone found something to like in the menu of continental and regional dishes

Headed here he other week based on a recommendation from a colleague. I wasn't overly impressed, have definitely eaten better elsewhere whilst being in Santiago. The most off putting thing we found about this restaurant is how the waiters pounce on you when you walk in the restaurant, as thy want you to sit at one of the tables they... More

The rib eye was average and expensive for Santiago. I did really like my salad (Avacado, Tomato, and onion) . A very nice wine selection , but again very expensive for the area. I would recommend La Hacienda instead.

I have eaten at Happening many times during trips (business and family) to Santiago. It is one of my favorite places in Chile to eat. The tuna is exquisite. The beef is superb. All of the seafood is very good. It has a wonderful atmosphere, perfect for business and family dining.

We sat outside which was great as t he next day we were heading back to the cold of the Uk. Inside looked very large and impersonal. But this meant we were with the smokers which was a downside. It was clean but not spotless. Service was friendly and English spoken. Starters were bizarre. We ordered chorizo and another type... More

I don't speak Spanish and was very grateful for them assigning me an English speaking waiter. He made a great recommendation for a matching wine and the steak was great

This is part of an Argentinian chain. The meat dishes are outstanding and the portions very large. The staff were very obliging and service was quite good. The atmosphere is excellent and we were part of a 20 person group. Most could not finish their meals We had a most enjoyable evening andvwould happily return
