    We were 6. I ordered Pargo a la Plancha, it was supposed to be the last one and it was terrible, another ordered the same but he had to settle for Trucha. Other 2 ordered crab cakes, the menu said 3 but the girl said that the portion only had 2. i told her to be sure that she brought 3, she said she had to talk to the manager, the portions are very small, the prices high and the noise imcredible. We wont return

    Food was not good. My spaghetti was too salty my husbands picanha was the worst piece of steak ever. It was like eating meatloaf but with tons of meat fat. Half of the steak was uneatable fat an the rest disgusting ground beef. The wine list is very confusing. Ended up paying triple for a bottle of wine because the price was in the wrong spot. Ended up spending a fortune in disgusting food awful experience

    An otherwise excellent lunch for the 6 of us was chilled by inattentive, absent-minded waitress who preferred losing herself in long talks with other waiters in an at-the-time fairly empty place. PLEASE NOTE: The busgirl/assistant was very helpful. The food was excellent but the waitress put in wrong orders and meat arrived improperly cooked, so dishes had to be returned. I guess the waitress felt she was going to get an included-in-bill 18% gratuity regardless of what she did, so why bother? As a matter of fact we customarily leave a higher tip, so she wound up short-changing herself.

    Inattentive manager/hostess busy with takeout orders made us wait on arrival despite restaurant being practically empty and plenty other staff to handle orders. So, it reminded me of sign at railroad crossings where you cool your heels watching uncoming train. Balance if experience good.

    After having dined there a few times I must say the last visit was the best. I have not previously been too impressed but it is a convenient location and it might improve with time. They used to validate parking but now you have to pay 3 dollars and lots of parking places are reserved only for valet so that it might be difficult to park yourself.

    lechilango
    Dined on 4/13/2014
    Looking for a good Argentinean place to have dinner, this is not really the best. You expect to find typical meat cut, but there is not really big choice in meats. You will find more fish options in the menu. As for the typical "mollejas", not bad as such, pity the sauce it goes with... On the average, medium. Advantage : outdoor dinning, although it is in a Parking lot.

  • Brazilian Steak - Dry - Over cooked
    Knifeguy
    Dined on 3/22/2014
    One in our party didn't ask enough about this entree & was very disappointed. The menu says slow cooked for 12 hours then grill finished. We thought braised falling off the bone tender, with quick outside char to complement. Ack, dry as a bone, very overdone. Thankfully, our big shared for two bone in ribeye was do e to Med Rare perfection & really big enough to share with the unfortunate one, with still a nice size bone for lunch the next day. Ambiance, servers were very warm. A very enjoyable evening and the Brazilian Steak was removed from our bill. First class restaurant and a testament to the legacy of their very recent and tragic death of the organization's CEO. Very sad, indeed.

    I've been coming since the opening and while the servers do try hard for the most part, there is definitely a communication problem with many of the staff not understanding english sufficiently. On two occasions, the hostess station did not check us in on open table even though we clearly announced our reservation on the system upon arrival. And, it is also frustrating when our table's food orders are routinely brought out incorrectly. We want this establishment to succeed because Aventura is lacking in pleasant, outdoor dining areas and the food here is generally quite good.

    If you're looking to eat food with absolutely no taste, visit Novecento Aventura. It was obvious the food was heated in the microwave. The linguine shrimp tasted like plain pasta and the beef cappricio tasted like wet bread. Martinis were made with entirely too much alcohol. Ruined Valentine's. Mentioned to the staff the food was not to our liking, they responded, "we're sorry"......OK. Thanks Novecento Aventura.

    Great for lunch and dinner. Food is excellent, and while the name is Italian, it's not Italian, it's Argentenian. The food is good: predominantly beef dishes, though. The staff doesn't speak English too proficiently and it's not a place for children. It's a great date night spot.

    I suggest you tell your waiters to be a little more observant. Ours walked by us 5 maybe 6 times before he took our order. We got our drinks from the busboy. I read some of the other reviews. Service is bad. Might have something to do with the tip being included on the check. You should change that policy. Let the server earn his tip. Most people I know would give 20% or better.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    The waiters and waitresses were too busy talking to each other than being available for service. The owner(Mgr was not there) After waiting an inordinate period of time for a check- we had to approach the group of 'busy waiters' congregated in the back of the restaurant for a check. However, we will be regulars despite the lackadaisical attitude. I believe the owner should address this issue and monitor the waiters and waitresses performance in the future.
