Atmosphere is very noisy when we went. Place is small. Food was great, but not excellent. Waiters were nice.

Came here on a late Friday night and most of the sides were not available. The friendly waiter was nice enough to explain the reason and recommended the potato salad. We ordered the short ribs and skirt steak. The skirt steak was amazing! We ordered it medium rare and it came out perfect; juicy and tender. The short ribs wasn't... More

One of the best steakhouses in NY at the heart of Elmhurst. The food is excellent and the service is warm. They will have delivery soon which is great!

Fantastic meats, great wines, delicious desserts and friendly experienced service. Great salads too... This is a place I bring visiting friends to, and it's one if the first places I come to whenever I return to New York.

La Fusta is great and well priced, we usually order the meat grill platter and it's more than enough for two and with enough to take home. If I can convince my girl, next time I would like to order an individual steak, they look pretty good. Part of the grill platter we get includes some entrana and it's decent,... More

La Fusta signifies the whip they use during horse races. This type of restaurant is authentic, welcoming and serves excellent food. You must order a steak of some kind, or the parrillada. You can't go wrong with their skirt steak and chimichurri. Our server recommended a Malbec to us and it went perfectly with the steak. Dim and rustic atmosphere.... More

This neighbourhood, Jackson Heights, is heavily ethnic and diverse in both reputation and literature. This restaurant appeals to Argentinian and Columbian cuisines as well as most others in S. America. It is heavy on the steak and grill components (including some that Americans are unfamiliar with like blood sausage and chinchulin and others). But the steaks are exceptional and hearty...

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT!! The steaks, the pastas, the chickens, salads, appetizers, desserts (panqueque de dulce de leche, flan, etc.) is by far one of the best restaurants in the U.S. I have yet to try one dish that i do not love! I have been coming to this restaurant since i was very little...and over 30 years... More

This restaurant has been a mainstay of Jackson Heights/Elmhurst for many years and has maintained its reputation for fine staff and well-prepared food. The steaks are varied and cooked to order and , if your tastes run to SA grills, surely a unique taste, the chinchulinas and blood sausage are authentic and effulgent. Families especially enjoy occasions here as they... More

I dined here many, many years ago (1987 wasn't an option). The food was amazing. The fact that it is still around speaks for itself. I am going to make a point to stop by soon.
