    This is the 2nd time we have been to Novecento, the first was during the week. On a Saturday night the crowd was more lively and we struggled a little to communicate with our friends. The food was good, although my entree - NY Strip Steak was quite tough and was not as well presented as I would have expected. They also had the Stanley Cup playing which I must admit I wasn't unhappy about. However 1/3 of the way through the TV's were switched to some obscure boxing event. When I asked if we could return to the hockey, I was told that the owner had a business interest in the boxing and they weren't allowed to change it. Overall this second visit did not live up to my first which I was hoping it would.

    Had a nice meal in Downtown NYC with my partner from Argentina. We enjoyed the meal with good appetizers. Best treat was that they carried Colome wine, which is a great Malbec from Salta region. The staff were very attentive and informative. Check it out.

    Restaurant claims to be affiliated to a traditional Buenos Aires joint, so I invited a friend to savor real Argentine fare. I was surprised when entering the place and hearing Mexican music being played. This is the 21st century, most people already know there is a difference between Argentina and Mexico, it is increasingly difficult to fool anyone. If I wanted a quesadilla while listening to Julieta Benegas, I would have gone to Rosa Mexicano, not to Novecento. When I asked the manager if he could play some Argentine music (tango for example), he said he couldn't because the songs were coming from the satellite (sic) in a perfect Mexican accent... If you want an authentic Argentine place and good service, I suggest you go elsewhere...

    The food was just ok. Mostly bland I would say. The menu is plain. The bar is very traditional. No flavored vodka, which each lady at our table tried to order. It was a Saturday night at 8pm and the restaurant was more than 50% empty.

    Novocento remains a steady, solid option for Soho. It is mostly no nonsense, with just a touch of the area's pretentiousness. I find the meals satisfying and reliable. Just good basic Argentine food with a few interesting touches. The environment is comfortable and the staff usually good. Welcoming for date night or groups or even kids. Feels like Buenos Aires meets New York.

    I took the family up to the city to celebrate my grandmother's birthday, and looked for something off the beaten path for them (not a chain), and decently appealing cuisine-wise to everyone. It worked out well. The food reminded me of being down in Buenos Aires earlier this year, the bar was great, and massive windows gave it a nice open air yet cozy feeling letting a perfect night drift in. The staff was responsive and knowledgeable.

    My husband is Argentine and loves to seek out Argentine restaurants when we travel. We had been to Novecento in South Beach so decided to try them out in NYC. We had a great meal, with all of the traditional Argentine dishes prepared to perfection. We tried the provoleta, mollejas, hangar steak and of course the dulce de leche crepes for dessert. Not only did the dishes rival visits to other US-based Argentine restaurants, they were all better than much of the food we had while in Buenos Aires this past February. Great restaurant with very attentive and polite staff!!

    Mojitos packed with a punch. Mussels are delicious but the serving bowl has gotten considerably smaller as I've been dining here for the past few years. Use to be served in a deep dish bowl now its in a size of soup bowl. Disappointing with the shrinkage.

    The food was good, but I have eaten at better Argentinian restaurants. It was not bad at all, but not as good as expected. The atmosphere was very loud, hectic, & chaotic, but that is the scene of this restaurant and that is OK as long as that is what you want. The wine we had was great. I will try again when I have the opportunity.

    Definitely one of my favorite restaurants. The decor, ambiance, service and food are all exceptional! The food portions are very generous and they use the highest quality meat, fish and ingredients. Everything tastes so savory and delicious. Located in the heart of Soho, Novecento is one of the best restaurants in NY. Whether to go on a date or just with some friends I highly recommend Novecento.

    Missing Buenos Aires ? Never been, but want to go ? Try Novecento, as close to Barrio Norte as one can get without flying 10 hours to EZE. Great place, and fun drinks specials. Meats and pasta the way to go, and do not forget a glass of Malbec.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    A sturdy, old time Soho restaurant and bar, with big screens for watching soccer matches, with beer on tap and plenty of Malbec. Really delicious empanadas, skirt steak and chicken, but the chorizo was softer than the type I'm used to eating, more like a hot dog than a cured sausage. Salad was very fresh and not over-dressed. Service was very nice and attentive.

    Having avoided this place noticing that while the food was decent, prices had increased nearly 50% in the last 5 years (hello economic downturn?) it was late and options were limited. BUT "Private" party upstairs resulted in disco level music BLASTED into dining area. After screaming at each other "Is this OK with you?" we left.

    My husband and I went to Novecento based off a simple Open Table search for Argentine restaurants. We grabbed a drink at the noisy and busy bar - Sangria was good. We tried the Argentine Trio (we are meat lovers). The morcilla, molleja and chorizo was perfectly cooked and accompanied by chimichurri sauce. We ordered the Pesto Pasta dish and an Entrana. STEAK was delicious...pasta was al dente and all around a GREAT MEAL. We finished the meal with panqueque con dulce de lech con elado vanilla. My husband who isn't much of a dulce de leche lover ate the entire thing (with my help). Its a busy hip restaurant in a great area.... My only request is some Tango music to make you feel like your in BA!

    I have been going to Novecento for years and always enjoyed the friendly nature of the staff and the delicious food. There was always a good balance of trendy SoHo types and everyday neighborhood New Yorkers sprinkled with folks from Europe and South America that made the hang there a nice experience. It is no longer like this. It was full of kids with no manners, the service was terrible and the food was passable. I was saddened to see the decline. I do hope that it is temporary.

    We went for Mother's Day Lunch as my daughter wanted Argentinian food. It was very noisy and the tables were very close together. The waiter was very pleasant and the food was good. The prices were not too high. They were showing soccer on a big screen tv. It was a fun place for young people. Not a place to go and have a quiet meal and be able to talk with your companion.

    We have been to 900 in Miami beach many times and have had consistently good experiences there. Our visit here in Soho kept that tradition in good stead. The positives - We ordered the mixed meat grill which was very good with 2 glasses of the house red which was very good for a house red. We have a little boy and the staff were very attentive to adapt the menu to his picky needs. The negatives - the steak and chicken in the mixed grill were cut finely and so they got cold very quickly. How about serving it on a hot plate instead? Or cooking it on a hot plate - basque style? The house wine was very good but was $12 a glass - that seemed pricey to me. Overalll food good, staff very friendly and I'm sure we will visit again.

    Could be very romantic if it was not so noisy and full but this must be normal for a neighborhood gem and with the little candle you can imagine you are only 2... Not a lot of wines but the Malbec is good. Good food (we took the meat, the ceviche appetizer was not the best of NY...) and friendly service.
