    Great food and drinks. Perfect seat near the open kitchen. Only complaint is the service. Our actual server only took our orders and then really never came back to the table. We had empty and low drink wine and beer glasses that we had to ask around different staff to get another round for.

    We’ve been to R40 a number of times and have always enjoyed it. Tonight’s service was unfortunately subpar. The waiter forgot our order and we had to repeat it. We never got the bread. And it took forever to get the check.

    I wanted to enjoy this restaurant. This is the second time I've visited and unfortunately it was rather disappointing. The service was very slow. The dishes were hit or miss. The Focaccia, Heirloom Tomato salad, and Rigatoni were great! The Ceviche and Market Fish (it was trout) were under seasoned, bordering on bland. The Trout Market Fish dish specifically was one of the worst dishes I've ever received at a restaurant. It was very fishy, lacked acidity, lacked salt, and I found it to be inedible. It put me off my whole meal. When the waiter asked about my meal, I told him about my issues with the fish, he apologized but no accommodations were made to satisfy me. Paid the bill, which still included the subpar fish, walked to Trader Joe's and bought a salad to take home. The first time I visited, the food and service were great. I don't think I'll be visiting again in the future.

    The restaurant isn’t bad however for what they charge you can go somewhere else for an elevated experience. For example the empanadas were between 7-8 dollars per which is a bit extreme. Jora, a Peruvian restaurant in the area, charges 11 for 3 empanadas of equal or better quality.

    One of our favorite LIC restaurants! Wide range of menu options that are great for sharing. Empanadas are a classic choice and are paired with a sauce that compliments them so well. Love the ambiance and the patio in the back of the restaurant for outdoor dining.

    Our server was attentive and well versed in the menu and food POV. He helped us determined what to order and made this a memorable experience. The empanadas were delicious. The the Choripan and Parilldalla for two were exceptional. Highly recommend and can see why this is a Michelin star restaurant.

    The concept is good, but the delivery needs work. The main dishes were generally tasty but somewhat overpriced and frankly I have had better chicken milanesa and skirt steak. The empanadas to start were decent. The employees seemed a bit overwhelmed. The environment is quite inviting. The restaurant needs to work out some rough edges and perhaps get back to basics on the food preparation.

    The food is really delicious! Empanadas, drinks and desserts, really chef’s kiss!! Well cook and super fresh ingredients, including the really important to the sea food. The place it’s cozy. But the excellence is the crew members, very attentive, since the barman, servers and highlight to Kevin. I will back sooner than I planned.

    Great place to bring family and friends for a good dinner. The food is very tasty paired with delicious cocktails and a nice selection of wines. Last night was my second time dining at R40 and unfortunately the service felt very short and it didn’t match the quality of the food. Waiter completely neglected our table, food order was taken 40 min after we sat down then no more service for another 35 min, I had to go inside the restaurant to order drinks because he was completely MIA. I hope this was just an off night because the food is good and I’d like to come back again when service improves. That’s the reason I gave 4 starts

    Each drink took 15-20 minutes to receive with us having to remind the server. We were a party of 2. The server had no idea about what was gluten free or dairy free. My friend’s food came out 15 min before mine. My steak was rare when I requested that it be medium well. Tre only redeeming part was that the hostess Catherine attempted to sooth the situation by providing us with a complimentary glass of wine and informed us that there was only one server working. However, the restaurant failed at multiple points.

    It’s expensive don’t get me wrong but the people were very friendly and the food was unbelievable. Unfortunately food tends to be very expensive nowadays. For Example it was nine dollars for one empanada and $16 for a drink so it’s not a place we could go all the time but honestly the food was amazing and it was a nice experience.
