The food was good and the set up is really nice, but the staff kept interrupting all the time. There were 3 waiters all the time around us forcing us to order more food. They didn't let us have a normal conversation because they would ask if we need anything or change our plates that still had food on them without us even asking for it. We were for sure not the only customers that went through it that night and also saw reviews in different websites that mentioned the same problem. I would not recommend this place just because of how uncomfortable it was.

Service was excellent. Bilingual staff, professional and courteous. We had our 3yr old with us and they accommodated as much as possible. We ordered the churrasco and parrilla, each cooked to perfection. Price was avg for NYC- 2 adults with no alcohol runs you about $100 with apps and dessert.

I really loved the service and the food. The appetizers were delicious - especially the calamari. We ordered steak, lamb and fish and each dish was had a great flavor. The only criticism is that I have were that two of our steaks were a bit over cooked for medium rare. However, they remade them to our specification and were really kind about it. The space is beautiful and everyone in our party of 9 had a blast. Would recommend.

Beautiful spot with excellent service. My only gripe is paying $16 for a glass of wine that I can buy in NYC FOR $13 a bottle. Makes you feel like a fool. Quality of the meat is not quite up to par with the prices they charge

We chose this place because we loved that happy hour on the web site said it was till 8. But when we got there it indeed ended at 7....but the owner was gracious enough to allow us to have the happy hour because of the mistake. We enjoyed our time sitting at the bar.... JOSE WAS AWESOME!!! HE WAS VERY ATTENTIVE AND GREAT WITH RECOMMENDATIONS! His drinks were excellent! Because of how we were treated we will be returning very soon. They have an extensive menu.... Empanadas are delicious and their dessert menu, I could of tried everything!!

I was there on a snowy night, so the restaurant was about half empty. So no surprise that least during the night I was there, it was great for conversation. The tables are well-spaced, and there was almost a blessed hush to the place.

The space is downright elegant, in an old townhouse. The service excellent. The cuisine was typical Argentine. If I may be permitted two small cavils, it seemed to me that the menu was just a little bit too pricey, and the room was a trifle too dark. I needed to use my I-phone flashlight to read it and I noticed the man at the next table doing the same.. But all-in-all, I had a very good experience there.

Enjoyable meal that was very good in all three aspects of food, ambiance and service. It is a re-purposed townhouse that allows for a variety of seating options from very private tables for two to larger groups in the main room. So, it is good for many different types of occasion. We had the Lobster Bisque, Oysters, Ribeye, and Sea Bass (Toothfish). The Sea Bass was excellent but the quality of the Ribeye was beneath top steakhouse standards (nicely cooked though) and my Manhattan had way too much bitters (so many bartenders do this!) but, all in, a solid culinary experience.

The food was phenomenal but one thing that got to me and I see other reviews is that many waiters come to the table which is really annoying I would have liked to have dinner in piece without having different waiters coming to the table. It was nice and quiet on the side I was on but did hear music somewhere else which I would have liked to hear as well.

I was so excited to have our team lunch here for our project celebration. I made reservations early and called early about vegetarian options. Upon arrival we saw that we were one of three tables filled, with ours being the largest group. After nealy 20 minutes I had to ask the waiter to order. We placed our orders by 12:50. By 1:30 our appetizers finally came out and they were tasty. But having planned a 2pm wrap up we got nervous and several of us started canceling our 2pm meetings. By 1:50 we started asking the waiter how much longer ...he said a few minutes ...this went on until by 2:20 I had to physically get up to the kitchen to see what was going on. Again three more meetings cancelled. Our food didn’t come out till 2:30. Two hours after we first sat down. What did we order? Chicken salad, grilled steak and a few vegetarian pastas. The pastas came last and were so plain and poorly assembled our teammates couldn’t eat it. Overall everyone felt the food was a huge letdown. Either lukewarm, over seasoned or under seasoned. Just all over the place. The calliflower sides were burnt, not caramelized or toasted...burnt. Huge disappointment after reading the other reviews. It’s like we got a totally different chef and staff. Why do I know all the timelines? Because when it takes two hours to get your main course you look at your watch constantly.

What a gem! The only thing that was better than the food was the outstanding service. The wait staff explained the menu very well and made excellent recommendations. From the Sazerac Manhattan, through dinner and desert, the team never let my water glass get empty and quickly brought another Manhattan when that got low. Chimichurri Grill will now be a regular stop on my visits to New York.

To me this is the epitome of fine dining : the ambience, the service, and, of course the food. We started with 2 appetizers, the goat-cheese ravioli and the crispy polenta. Wow. The tastes were delicious and the plates were generous enough for the 4 of us. I shared a rib-eye steak whichwhich I can't resist ordering was juicy and delicious. The whole bronzino another dining partner ordered was also perfectly prepared snd presented. The fourth person had the paparadelle with meat sauce and loved it. We shared several veggie sides (my favorite being the burnt cauliflower. A nice bottle of cabernet and a few desserts and espresso rounded out the meal. Service was xuperb, attentive, and friendly. And let's just say we didn't break the bank as we might have in some other restaurants of this caliber. I highly recommend it.
