Our daughter gifted us with an anniversary dinner--what an amazing treat!!! We loved the exotic accordian tango music accompanied by sensual dancers--exquisitely performed while we drank wine and feasted in leisurely fashion. We sat in a booth that gave us full view of the dancers as well as the chefs. Our waiter, Robert, was a true professional in attentiveness, guidance and knowledge of wine and cuisine. We started with a luscious South American red wine blend. The complimentary bread/chips along with the chimichurri sauce were addictive. Meat selection was extensive, and we were extremely happy with the mid-range $$ rib eye that was cooked to our perfection. Robert made our anniversary very special by selecting a very nice dessert champagne to accompany a light, lovely (chocolate) dessert. The backup wait staff never let the water glasses get empty--thanks. Very upscale service and cuisine. We are hooked and will return for another romantic evening soon

We were staying at a hotel just around the corner and thought that we stop in and have some supper. The service was amazing. Very attentive, friendly, and courteous. The wine selection was large and very good. I had the ribeye and it was cooked perfectly to my specifications and was delicious. My wife had a swordfish, salmon, and scallop skewer which was also very good. Loved the atmosphere and would love to go back on a Saturday and catch the tango demonstration. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Although they advertise South American cuisine, the restaurant is almost purely Argentinian. There are only a few Uruguayan and Brazilian cuts. Nothing wrong with being Argentinian but do not false advertise...
Food was really well prepared and very tasty. Service definitely could be improved. On two occasions we asked for something and the waiter simply forgot and we had to ask again.
