    A great place to hangout and have a few drinks and enjoy some good food. Better quality than the usual chain restaurants but not at the same level as a fine dining steak house. Skirt steak won everyone over at the table. The filet that was part of the meat platter was overcooked *I don’t think they ask you how you want it cooked if it’s part of the platter* My friend tried a few empanadas and the short rib one was best. Drinks are nice and strong. I think the foundation of a great restaurant is here, just some attention to small details will elevate this place

    Accessibility is very good Food was disappointing, not authentic and bland, side dishes need improvement Busy night, but staff needs more training, server burnt his hand handling our plate, waiter needed to be reminded about extra items, no host/hostess on arrival, Maitre-d' appeared to be overwhelmed with the evenings activities

    Service was very poor, bar tenter never looked up to offer us a drink. We had to work hard to get his attention. The first interaction with the server, he asked if we were ready to order without providing us with a menu. The food did not have any flavor. Meal was expensive. They double charged us on our card and we had to get our credit card company involved to have it removed.

    I have to say that I was a little reluctant when I first got there, because it seemed pretty busy and they didn’t have many employees. However, our server was truly amazing. She was very quick. The food always came out really fast and the service was great.

    It started off bad, I had a reservation because it was Christmas Day but once I got there I checked in and they said they would be right with me and then kinda forgot about me. I finally stood by the door and the manager came and sat us down. Manager came back and brought us water and said that our server would be right with us. Unfortunately that wasn't true, our server was so busy and we literally sat there for a long time, more than 20 minutes. Am not blaming her because she did had a larger party but still. Finally came and we placed our drink orders as well as our food, we had already decided what we wanted. I ordered a appetizer which was an empanada and our dinner. They brought bread and 2 different Chimichurri sauce which was excellent, when our empanada arrived I cut it and bit into it and it was ice cold. I let the manager know and he took it and make it right. After that everything else was great. Steak was perfectly cooked, potatoes were excellent and there corn pudding was delicious. Started off kinda bad but ended great. Will be back but hoping for a better start next time.

    We were there to watch the fifa world cup final and the speakers weren't properly installed. They had no coffee available because they didn't have any cups. I had to drive to the Starbucks down the street to get some. Hard to get refills too.

    I asked for a booth ahead of time and then restaurant didn’t want to honor that. I had to argue and ended up with a half booth. The waiter was awesome! The food was not worth the price. Will not go back.

    I took my partner for our anniversary and this place flew short. The ambiance was great, but the food was not good. I ordered the short ribs with a salad and potatoes. The short ribs were chard and tough. The salad had little to no dressing and the potatoes lacked salt. My partner ordered the lobster and mashed potatoes. The lobster was over cooked and it had a tasteless sauce on it. Her mashed potatoes were bland, they needed a lot more salt. It’s safe to say that spending $200 at this place was not worth it.

    Overall good concept. I do like the option of ordering specific types of meats at desired temp. The service was slow to very slow. We eventually were served refills, etc but definitely on the slow side. The food I would call average to slightly below. Steak was definitely not top prime and I have had better from some name.brand restaurants. The sides were not bad. I was ok with them. For the price paid I think I would go to a quality steakhouse instead. Would get better service, better quality steaks and probably the same or lessor cost.

    Food was great, but the service could used some improvement. Expected the service to be better or mimic Morton steak house since we are looking at the same amount. Two other tables of groups of 4 got there food and alcoholic drinks before us and we arrived between 10-15 mins before and submitted our orders in advance compared to them and we where a party of two. Also our food waiter disappeared for quite a while and we where waiting for refills during the whole dining experience. Overall the food was delicious but is not worth it with the experience/ service we received. If I’m paying that amount for food I expect top notch service.

    Service a slow, but venue was busier than normal. Order took longer than usual to come out and my appetizers like salad and fries came out with my dinner. Food was delicious as always so worth the wait. Server was nice and tried to provide the best service he could. Took about 10 min to get the check and another 10 min for server to collect my payment. I would still keep going due to the food quality and taste, love the live guitar player. Makes atmosphere so much more pleasing.

    The table still had trash from the previous party when we sat down. We didn't get any plates or utensils until we had to flag somebody down AFTER we got our appetizers. And it was hard to get anybody's attention. When we got our entrees, it was room temperature at best, not even warm or hot, as if they were sitting out for a while.

    Sunday was a bit busy and understaffed. It took a while to get our order & the food & drink itself . The food however was delicious and price is good too. Staff was courteous. If you have lunch on a weekday, food & service are both excellent.

    Ate for Dine LA. Had the filet mignon and it was cooked dry. The corn was good as usual. They ran out of chocolate mousse. I go to the Downey location regularly and never had a bad meal and been to Buena Park also and was delicious. So disappointed at the West Covina location.

    Upon arrival to restaurant we observed a musician was preparing to perform out in patio. Luckily we had made reservations to be seated out in patio. The guitar singer was awesome! He absolutely made the ambiance so worth being there! Unfortunately, our meals took over 1.5 hour to be served. The lamb chops I ordered were charred. My sister ordered filet minion which was ok- but the wedge potatoes were raw. The seafood appetizer arrived after both entrees were served. The only delicious items included one empanada (short rib) and the welcome bread w the chimi churri sauces. Unbelievable. I suspect we recieved poor service BECAUSE we were there for the Dine LA event. Everyone else who was there ordered off the main menu and were attended to more immediately. Someone should explain to this business the actual reason for the Dine LA- is to expose their delicious meals so customers return. Not to punish those participating in DINE LA.

    I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food is fantastic. Literally everything I’ve tried is great. Have had the empanadas multiple times, the fillet multiple times and it is always fantastic… you must to get the corn pudding as a side!! I’ve also had their salad and pastas that are delicious. They have their own beer and great cocktails. Always make a reservation though 😉

    Steak chewy and service slow...the medium skirt steak was too chewy for our liking while the appetizers were good (prawns and palm, chorizo tasting). It took two waiters to get us salt and pepper and checking out took 7 minutes from the credit card was taken to return.
