Beautiful restaurant. Excellent, fresh homemade pasta. Sangria was yum! Happy hour on patio or bar 4pm-6:30pm.

I liked the menu options. The food itself was ok. The New York steak and mashes potatoes was ok. The ravioli spinach pasta was some what tasty, but I didn't like the bacon in it. The crème brulea was interesting due to the citrus taste it had. The service needs improvement. We had to constantly be looking for our server, they weren't attentive, and would take kind of long.

Crepes de dulce de leche....these crepes just melt in your mouth and the dulce de leche adds a sweet, creamy goodness

I had my Christmas dinner here with a friend. Despite the fact, that all tables were booked and we couldn't get any on the "Open Table" app the lady on the phone was super nice and encouraged us to come, because she would do her best to get us a table.
At arrival she recognized me and after around 20min wait we were seated. Lucky for us.

This restaurant looks nice, our waiter was very cheerful and energetic yet it took him forever to come back to us after we told him that we were just seated and needed a few minutes. It was clearly busy and all tables were taken.

The food was nice and delicious, I enjoyed it with wine and dessert for the finishing touch yet I didn't expect to pay $73 per person for a only "$$" on Yelp. At the same time I couldn't taste any Argentinian flavor nor did any of the dishes looked Argentinian. It was simply American steaks and American dishes for me. And I remember us weren't giving any water. Upon request it took them another 10 min after forgetting our request.

Especially in the restaurant business small things add up to the whole experience of dining at a place. Therefore guests should've been greeted with "Welcome, Merry Christmas" and "Goodbye, Merry Christmas". Especially because it's Christmas it should be a memorable dinner for all guests. And playing random music except Christmas music or some ambiance music to support the whole feel would've been very nice.

It was definitely a good night. Don't be discouraged to see an only 3 stars rating. But it's those small little things that add up and I can't rate it more.

Get the sweetbreads here- they are amazing! The beef carpaccio is also very nicely done. Bring a date and sit on the tiny patio.

Good food and of course it is expensive. Features beef, vegetables and wine. Valet parking is available if you are unlucky in finding parking on the street.

I've always loved this place every time I come. My beau loves Argentina and Malbecs so I plan dinners here because it's his style. Of course the meat in Argentina is different than here but it's the same style at least.

Service:
Good. I always get pretty good service here.

Food:
Bread is yummy and FREE. Very fresh too.

I don't eat steak but my beau does and he said the steak is good here but of course not the same as Argentina.

I get fish and/or lobster ravioli... Salmon is a hit or miss... which is why I'll get the lobster ravioli... the sauce... AMAZING. I have a photo of it on here. OMG.

Parking:
Street or the bank lot. ;) Late at night when the banks are closed. Don't worry about it.

Ambiance:
Can be romantic but it can get pretty loud there. Don't sit outdoors... unless you want to people watch.

Overall: I enjoy it.
