I had the entrecote, ordered it medium-well... came pretty much well done. I guess should off ordered medium. The steak was very tender (saying a lot for local cuts), somewhat less tastier than i expected for a $34 steak. My wife had de "lomito", she felt satisfied. Service was very good. The place was nice... nicer than Esq. Bs Aires, but slightly prefer beef a Esq Bs Aires. Would put this place in top 3 steak restaurants in the San Jose metro area.

bread, food and surroundings excellent. Price too high for a good piece of meat. Service is great and place is nice.

Had a nice lunch. Ordered the lamb kebabs, tough and very greasy, but my husband enjoyed his burger. Nice atmosphere inside but we didn't want the air conditioning and preferred to enjoy the nice Santa Ana breeze. At these prices we thought they could afford a gardener. I could suggest them for a desperate makeover, landscaping, etc. They have a nice deck but it lookls like the patio of a low class neighborhood, unkept and neglected with trash lying around. That was the reason we decided for a quick lunch and leave.

Never expected to find such a great US-style steakhouse in Santa Ana. The highlights were the bread assortment to start, along with excellent salads and sides. The beef was also very good, but was grass fed so not quite the same flavor profile as corn fed beef. There is an extensive wine list and a very good selection of desserts.
Overall ambiance and service was top notch - clearly a very well run establishment. We had a great experience and definitely look forward to returning.

Just got out of there. The place is very nice, bread was good. My wife ordered pasta and it was really bad, probably not the best place to order pasta. Anyway I ordered a New York Steak, and I am very disappointed, had a very good recommendation of this place. Meat was very hard, flavor-less, and for the price, it is just unacceptable. Want a good piece of meat? Go to Esquina de Buenos Aires, downtown San Jose.
