Great service, ambiance, & wine selection. Was happy to finally check this spot out after their opening last year and definitely looking forward to going back. Like a slice of Manhattan in lic.
The peach salad and short ribs are a must! Great find in LIC.
I went to R40 with a group of 8 people. The majority of my party was late, but the restaurant was very understanding. We were lucky in that it wasn't super busy, otherwise we probably would've lost the table. The hostess is really sweet and accommodating. The food is very good. I had the fish and that was ok. I've had the steak before and that is really good. The empanadas are delicious as is the black rice.
This place exceeds all expectations and has become our go-to spot to celebrate special occasions. From the service, to the food, to the interior design of the space, it is always such a lovely experience visiting R40. You will find authentic Argentinian dishes, coupled with Italian dishes that incorporate Italian influence in Argentina. If you get the chance to try the peach salad (made from the peach tree in the backyard), you will NOT regret it. The outdoor space in the back is beautiful in the day time. Our favorite spot in LIC!
Food is very heavy and filling and over salted. Very heavy handed on butter / fat and I was burping up my meal for hours after.
Decided to celebrate a birthday with dinner at R40. We had a delicious meal, attentive and patient service, and even enjoyed a birthday dessert. Many thanks for the staff for making sure we had a memorable dinner.
BEST staff team!
Food was absolutely delish and the greeter/Hostess was beautiful and had such a great vibe. She was Asian
Incredible meal! The service and quality was so high. What a gem this place is!
Food was good, not to die for. Overpriced in my opinion. Drinks were great. Visited during a heat wave and it didn’t feel like the AC was on. We were sat next to the kitchen. It was very hot.
always fire 🔥
Staff was incredibly welcoming, professional and friendly. They created a great experience from the moment we came in till when we left. Best experience we’ve had at a restaurant. The food was great, interesting and fresh and the drinks were good. It felt so good to eat out in the backyard. Lovely ambience inside and out. Great for date night, or with friends or with family.
Amazing ! Chef Ross is the best, staff is great!!!
We have been here 3 times since its opening and every time is just perfect! The food is incredible! We had the choripan, the chitarra and the skirt steak. Everything was soooo delicious. Although we were full, we shared the espresso ice cream. The perfect ending to a perfect dinner! The service was just as wonderful! Definitely recommend R40!!! It's one of the best restaurants we've been to!
The food was amazing. The service was superb.
R40 is always a great experience! This was my second time dining here and I am always impressed with the food and service. I find that no matter what I order I am impressed! From the juicy New York strip, to the choripan and empenadas, everything is delicious. Kyla was our server and she has the best suggestions and service I’ve had in a while - thank you for making our dining experience special!
Kyla was an amazing waitress and would definitely come back.
What a fantastic place. The service was fast and attentive, the staff -extremely diverse and brings out the best part about New York City. The food arrived fast and was super delicious. The prices were steep but totally worth it. If you have a good occasion to celebrate-go there.
AC doesn't work which makes for an uncomfortable dining experience. Tables in the window are high for people sat at the chairs but low for people sat on the bench in the window; poor attention to detail which ruins the meal. Food is OK if over priced; would not recommend coming to the area specifically to visit this restaurant.
The food and cooking is excellent. The service is lovely and kind, but overly solicitous. It would be more pleasant if they spoke less and used eyes on tables more. Meals don't have to be descibed when dropped. It's invasive and the menu describes the dishes perfectly. The food was excellent and delicious. The outdoor patio is delightful. The inside was way too loud, with music way too loud! Hard to enjoy such delicious well prepared food in a nosiy room.
Food is delicious! Service was great! Drinks were awesome!
Amazing food and ambiance Always have a great time
Made it so special for my wife’s birthday! Thank you again!
We had a Great dinner! Food and drinks were both great
good food, good service, a fun night out near lic!
As a born and raised New Yorker I am glad to see a place like LIC coming up in the food scene. It shows that you don’t have to go to Manhattan to get quality food and service. I really enjoyed my experience. Beschal was extremely accommodating when I realized I made my reservation for the wrong day and was able to seat us. Victor and Lionel made our dining experience quite memorable along with the rest of the staff from the food runners to the server assistants. As someone who has worked in the service industry for 15 years I highly recommend R40 if you are in the mood for great quality food and service! Thank You!
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. Got the meat dish for 2 (I forgot the name), as well as cocktails, salads, filet minion empanadas & fries. Every dish was amazing. Definitely going back to try other menu options!
Loved everything about this restaurant! The host was phenomenal, so personable and knowledgeable. The wait staff were all friendly, warm and just lovely. The ambiance was beautiful. The repurposed wood, the smell and the outdoor patio were lovely. The food was heaven!!
The food was excellent, but the service was not good. From the moment we sat down, we felt rushed. We were told we had a time limit on the table (?) and then rushed to order, etc. I thought it was odd that our waiter didn’t know what a vodka soda is. After dinner, our waiter disappeared. We would’ve ordered wine and/or dessert, but we waited so long for someone to come over that we just paid and left. We ended up flagging someone down to pay. We are big supporters of this place so it was frustrating to not have the best service experience. Food/drinks were great as always though.
Amazing open kitchen concept with indoor and outdoor dining. Very cool ambiance, yummy food and impeccable service and attitude from the staff! Great cocktails and fun vibe. Definitely a place to check out in LIC!
I wanted to go to R40 to try their food for a long time. We went 4, we started with 4 apettaizers: black rice, provoleta, pepper shishitos and empanadas (one with meat and the other with mushrooms) We then ordered 2 16oz 30 day dry aged NY strip steak. We also ordered two bottles of wine. I must say that the outstanding thing there is the service, they treated us very well. the quality compared to the price of the food and variety is very poor and fair to poor. I don't recommend the steak, it's not worth $70. I do not recommend the empanadas, they are not good, the black rice delicious. Wines, of four options that we had selected, they did not have any, they served us what the house had, bad. The place is beautiful, but for beautiful there are many better places. In any case, do not be dissatisfied.
The hostess was super sweet, friendly and welcoming. Waitress was accommodating. The decor is very, very nice! Food presentation was perfect. Food was DELICIOUS. GREAT flavors. Can’t wait to go back!! Perfect spot.
Very friendly staff, but not that knowledgeable. The entrée was great, but overpriced. The appetizers were so-so. The cocktail menu is too ambitious.
Great food and service!
A bit overpriced for the food, and some dishes were too salty while some were too bland. The empanadas were on point though, but $7-8/ piece.
Be prepared to be full when leaving this place!!!!
Food and service was amazing! A gem in LIC. Highly recommend the parrillada for two. We sat in the outdoor area which was very nice.
Best restaurant in NYC. So blessed to live around the corner. Everything is amazing!
Shout out to General Manager, Trish. So professional and nice.
First and foremost, the food is just outstanding. Giovanni and his team have built an incredible restaurant. It's truly remarkable to be there, and the food is excellent. Everything was amazing. The service to the drinks was top-notch. The dry-aged steak melted in my mouth. It was delicious. I can't thank everyone at the restaurant for the fantastic night.
