We had a lovely date night dining on the sidewalk at Portneo. The ambience is relaxed but refined, the service is impeccable, and the portions are generous. The empanadas and cocktails were especially delicious. I'd definitely go again!

The waitstaff was super welcoming and attentive, and the ambiance was homey. They did mess up a bit with our order, but quickly made things right. The empanadas were delicious, and our steaks were cooked just right. Quilmes beer hit the spot!

A lovely ambiance with an especial focus on Covid-safety. Each indoor table is surrounded by plastic partitions while the outside space interior has cordoned off private tables. Sadly, the food did not live up to expectations: elements--vegetables, feta, meat-- were not of good quality and the Argentinian Chardonnay mediocre.

I got the veggie lomito and it was seriously delicious but the potatoes it came with were just bad. My boyfriend got the short rib and he loved it but his side of the corn cake was also bad.

So mains were great but sides weren’t very good.

Service was great and so were the drinks.

Overall it was pretty pricey for what you get but because my sandwich was so delicious I would still go back.

This is a very nice place. We were there for a brunch on Saturday. We had sandwiches and a warm burrata appetizer (delicious!). The service was great, and the music was not too loud - just enough to create an atmosphere, but still let you talk to each other.

We had a octopus special which was grilled octopus with arugula and cherry tomato salada. Octopus was a bit rubbery and definitely pricey for what you get.
Empanadas were too small. Chicken was dry. Radicheta was not a radicheta taste. Caprese was fantastic. Again very small empanadas.
Service was below basic... Not expect anything different.

Beer was cold but from chicago!!!
