“Would like to try again”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

In fairness to the restaurant, the tapas was good and so was the food. My wife and I wanted Paella and despite temptations to get something else from the extensive menu, we stuck to it and got the paella. It was good but not really authentic in my opinion. I really wanted to get a steak made in the Argentine way, with a nice glass of Malbec. We are planning on going again soon. Service was very helpful in navigating the menu and the sangira was very good, servicde a little slow though maybe because it was crowded.

Want to try again.

“Go for the Tapas good food-- better value and don't go on a Friday or Saturday night”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

The service and food was so much better when we went on Sunday around 5 pm. It was not noisy, the services was really good and we got to try the tapas menu which was much better than the food I had on a Friday night from the main menu. Stay away from Friday and Saturday night crowds, the service can't handle it and neither can the kitchen. The food on those occasions was over-salted and cold and we waited forever for our food and we felt like sardines packed in place where they did not have AC to keep up with the crowds. Again.. go on less popular night and its a whole different experience. I do feel the entrees.

“Yummy Tapas”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

A nice change of pace from a regular app then entree is to have tapas and this is just the place to do that! Great atmosphere and great food, not to mention the wine selection!

“Always a great meal”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The best empanadas around-even a veggie option. The host Hugo is a charmer and knows how to take care of his guests. The Argentine meat selections are excellent. The entraña (skirt steak) is always a hit. Surprisingly, the fish specials are always fantastic. The meat grill for two easily feeds three people with left-overs. Be bold and try the morcilla (black sausage-really blood sausage)-delicious! Excellent appetizers and very good tapas. Very good selection of Argentine wines.

“Great venue, lousy beef”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The venue is wonderful, wait staff friendly, but the parilla ( beef barbeque) suffers from over salting and poor quality beef. Chicken is tasty, but every other item has problems. The sweet breads are dry and salty, chorizo over salted, short ribs, tough and over salted, hanger steak tough and, of course, over salted. Morcilla ok. In sum, as strange as this sounds, avoid the most typical dish at an other wise delightful place. If you really want parilla, drive to Queens and try Puerto Madero just off the expressway, save a few dollars and have a better meal. By the way the owner, Hugo, at Cafe Buenos Aires, is from Mendoza and the wine list reflects his excellent taste in wine, it is a pity he has yet to improve on the parilla.
