We had the meat platters. They were delicious but the food is very expensive. Their chimicurri sauce is the best!

Great steak reasonable prices. The mixed grilled for one person is enough for 2. Make sure you order Sangria and the Empanadas, we had spinach which are by far one of the best ones ever...

The service can be slow if you go on a Saturday or Sunday, place gets packed.

We all (three people) found our meals very sad - food was bland and or over cooked, French fries I would not serve a dog. waiters that looked like they wanted to be anywhere else rather than there, beer served in a wine glass !!
beware restaurants with very large menus is an old feeling/instinct I have always followed - la frusta's is very large and we should have left when we first saw it. pity we did not.
Shame as the place looked appealing. needless to say we did not tip.

I've been to many restaurants in NYC and surrounding areas, including North NJ, but La Fusta really stands out as the best quality meat you can ever find and taste around here. No restaurant in NYC equals flavor, freshness and experience in preparing these native Argentinian dishes, ranging from delicious appetizers like the authentic empanadas and chunchulines to the finest meat cuts.

My favorite picks: skirt and also the bife chorizo. They are tender and juicy.
Do me a favor and visit La Fusta. You'll immerse in a whole different gastronomic experience and it will cost you 3x less than any fancy restaurant with bad meat cuts in the city. It's just 10 minutes away after crossing the Lincoln Tunnel.

The service was good, friendly and professional. The restaurant is well maintained, classy and clean. The tango music is a delight as you dine. We got the parrillada for two which had a little bit of all: morcilla, chorizo, skirt steak, ribs, chinchulín, etc. The chimichurri is very good. For dessert we had the banana pancake which is delivered to your table and flamed in front of your eyes, making it very tasty (maybe they use cognac?), and the flan with dulce de leche. Overall a very pleasant evening for all.
