This is a very nice Argentinian restaurant with great food and service. I highly recommend this cozy place for a romantic dinner, or for casual dining.

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.

Overpriced for the quantity and quality of food. Nice outdoor seating setup, but other than the carne empanada I was disappointed.

As always, the food, drinks and service were terrific. Though it was cold (32), we ate outside and the setup was thoughtful, cozy and quaint, and warm enough to sit comfortably.

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.

Overpriced (!), bland taste (Salmon and Empanadas) and a rather small menu.

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!!!

Food was exquisite. I had black and blue flank steak. Hubby had scallops and grouper. Do not miss out on the calamari... it’s not the usual boring fried dish.... very yummy.

Service outstanding. We were greeted at the door with a big warm smile and given a tiny bit of ‘real estate’ to wait. The proprietor insisted on buying us two glasses of Prosecco because we had to wait 5 minutes.... Angel, our server, was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant.
I cannot imagine a better nyc dining experience. I would highly recommend. We will certainly go back.

I dined at Porteno for the first time - and had the most wonderful experience. The butternut squash soup was vegan and absolutely delicious. The snapper with clams and tomatoes was excellent, perfectly supplemented with the mashed potatoes. The bread pudding was one of the best dessert that I've ever had. The dining room is charming and quite cozy. But given the small space, it's definitely smart to make a reservation.

Very cute Argentinian restaurant with delicious food. Definitely worth to go there. What we did not like at all was that the waiters rushed us, for example because they cleared the plates too fast, asked us if we wanted to order more food even though we just finished our dishes or asked us to change our table because they need more space for new guests.
