    Waited 2 hours for cold food. It was only one plate for the table. When I asked the waitress for the food (after more than 1.5 hours waiting) she answered “cant you see the restaurant is full?” … Terrible service, terrible food… not recommended!

    El Viejo Almacén San JuanResponded on October 24, 2022We are very sorry for what happened, I apologize on behalf of the staff, know that we continue working to improve. A delay in the dishes is normal when the place is very busy, but not the response of the service. We hope you can return and reverse the bad experience, best regards. El Viejo Almacén.

    Nice place with great food. But don't sit at a table near the bar. The bartender that night kept slamming his empty bottles into the garbage. He did that about 6 or 7 times during our anniversary dinner. It was annoying and distracting. The charcuterie board was really great!

    Amazing salmon in honey, the manchego cheesecake was great and the dulce Catalina drink was yummy. The risotto was not cooked all the way but it tasted okay anyways. The band was lovely and the services too. Would visit again and its not too pricy either.

    This is a local steakhouse with an Argentinian theme. I had the ribeye and side salad, both were good, but not exceptional. Service was efficient, but not overly friendly. No complaints really; it was a good meal and I would go back, but I am not in a hurry to do so.

    Me encanta, tuve una veñada romantica con mi pareja. Muy buena la musica. Es mi tercera visita y la calidad de la comida no cambia. En cuanto a precio los platos son un poco caros pero valen la pena pagarlos. Mi plato del chuleton de ternera es riquísimo.

    For starters we had caprese salad and chrizo Al vino, both were very good. Filet mignon medium was perfectly cooked to order and the papas a la crema were 10/10. So full couldn’t order any desert but they all sounded very appetizing. Cocktails were a bit too sweet for my taste but good overall. I would give my experience a 10/10 and would definitely recommend El viejo almacén.

    This is the first time I have a bad experience in this restaurant. But it was truly terrible, we reported a shrimp allergy and they serve us shrimp. Also they brought us the wrong dessert after waiting for a ridiculously long period of time. Won’t be coming back in a while.

    Very busy restaurant. We had a mix up with our order though, very inexperienced and young wait staff. The restaurant did not make any adjustments or offer any comp on our bill and we had to accept the wrong dish. Just disappointing for the cost ($130 for two apps, two entrees, two drinks). Food was ok though everything was plated oddly (ie a beautiful steak plate that the pasta side dish was placed on top of in a bowl, rendering the sauce uneatable). The pasta swimming in sauce like a soup. Risotto was good but very salty. Doesnt seem like the staff actually understand the food they are preparing. It was easy to get a last minute reservation but it’s the only restaurant on our trip I wouldn’t recommend—not worth the convenience.

    Meal was good, meats were all good. Only negative was the risotto as both the traditional and spinach were gummy and bland. The meats for two were terrific especially the chorizo and chicken. The sea bass was also very good. Charcuterie plate was very tasty. Service was adequate but a tad slow. Drinks were well liked. Restaurant was lively with a appealing decor. Mushroom soup was outstanding. Dessert of salted dark chocolate dulce tart was fine. All in all a very nice experience, thanks.

    Food was great. Everything ordered by a party of 3 was very good, including appetizers. I wish the empanadas were the genuine baked Argentine ones instead deep fried. Independently of this, empanadas were good and well filled with the protein of your choice. Service was not bad but it took a little bit at the beginning to be helped and a bit to pay the check, this did not have a negative impact on the gratuity since service was good once we got it. Will definitely return!
