Our server was wonderful, but the seafood was awful. My friends ordered a meat-centric dinner and seemed to enjoy it. I’m a pescatarian and maybe this just isn’t the place to go for fish (although there’s quite a bit on the menu).
It was all over cooked, the octopus was chewy and not tender, and the shrimp and fish was not at all fresh and had a truly terrible going bad fishy taste. Sent it back and they were very accommodating. Nice wine list

The food was delicious. We had a hard time choosing from many tempting dishes. The waitress tried to rush us and recommend a rather expensive wine but otherwise the staff was friendly and attentive.

Excellent meal with a variety of choices for even the non-red meat eater. The octopus was exceptional and the staff delights in how they source from the best - and the flavor proves it. Most enjoyed the beef combo and raves about it. The yuca fries were tremendous and the tostones were great. The large salad with heart of palm was indeed large and provided for sharing.

As with everywhere now, business exceeds staff and the waits could be long for service. But well worth the visit. Happy to see so many diners out enjoying a beautiful evening in a great restaurant.

Food was good and the portions were enormous. Would have loved to have some sauces for the meat to try some different flavors. The meat was seasoned perfectly however so the true flavors came out in all of the dishes that we tried. The black beans were fantastic.

the restaurant has good ratings but on this night, the service was slow, inconsistence, and food was cold. You arrive for a 8pm dinner, and end up leaving around 1030pm... way to long for cold food, the positive was the red wine we had it was excellent. it looked like restaurant was short staff and that may have impacted the overall service.

The menu had nice variety and the food was fine. We tried a variety of appetizers and the gnocchi. The empanadas were bland. The gnocchi was nothing special. The croquetas were the best thing we had.

Ordered a pitcher of red sangria. It was pink and tasted like water with fruit. They brought a pitcher to another table and it was twice the size of ours and it was red. Asked if there were two sizes and were told no. The waiter mumbled and was not very outgoing. Was supposed to split a Caesar salad onto two plates and did not do so. One of the beef steaks was a low quality shoulder steak. The sausage was burnt. The short ribs were so overdone they could not be chewed. The pork was dried and tasteless. Spend your money someplace else.

My husband and I shared the Seafood Parillo for two, and it was delicious. The only thing worth noting was that we didn't recognize one of the seafood items on the mixed seafood plate, and we asked the waiter what it was. He asked the cook, who explained that it wasn't what they usually served but didn't know its name. It was indeed tasty, and so were the sides and Argentinian wines.

This place wouldn’t be my first recommendations to someone. Made reservations ahead of time and showed up with indoor and outdoor seating widely open. Asked for an outdoor table and was told they have been reserved by other people. 45 mins into seating and still there even more empty seating outside than inside. Menus are sticky and dirty along with the table. The carpet has crumbs and yet the bathrooms were nice. There was not enough silverware set up at our table, we asked for more end it didn’t come. We had to reach to another empty table to get the set. Tapas plates were still soaking wet which makes an appearance that they aren’t clean or the staff doesn’t care enough to make sure things are tidy and ready for a guest. They set up a table next to us which was not wiped down and glasses were soaking wet and hand lipstick remaining on it. Again, more signs there is no attention to detail. Our first course was the large Caesar salad. It’s a mayonnaise base with very little resemblance to a Caesar salad. We ordered the paella and we couldn’t jump right into it since we were waiting for he serving spoon to come out a few minutes behind it. The paella was just okay. It lacked flavor and needed those amazing spices which paella has. I was disappointed because I was really looking forward to have the amazing aroma of paella. I would recommend other places before coming here.

I would like add they are understaffed and the wait staff is amazing. They are very kind and sweet. Kudos to busting their butts to make it happen.

Celebrated Mother’s Day with mine and my daughter, was seated at an outside table, it was in the shade of the building which was fine but a bit warm. We ordered a grilled steak sampler for 2, with a few extra sides as well as a spinach and ricotta stuffed chicken breast. While waiting a hand an hour for the food the shade completely disappeared and we waited another 20 mins sweating in the

Ordered the all steaks sampler for 2. Ordered everything to be med rare. Only 1 steak was even med. Everything else was well done, filled with fat and or really thin. Not to mention took a long time to receive. Honestly, best thing we ate was the mashed potatoes. Ruth Chris was booked so we ended up here. Next time id skip it.

We sat outside because we had a baby with is. Our server was attentive and I had the half rack of lamb, cooked just the way I ordered it. It was outstanding!! My friends had the beef sampler for two. It's a tough meal to cook because the meats are different thicknesses so no selection on temp. The French fries were delicious - perfect for my taste - and the mashed potatoes were excellent also. Well worth the trip. Try it!

Waiter Josh P was horrible, ruined our meal. Drinks took forever then only brought my husbands and my wine in a small carafe no wineglass. Waited again. Salad came with the entree. Ordered the meats for two, plunked down on table, no Info on what was what. When asked waiter said oh maybe they didn’t give you pork, shrug and walked away. Two sauces no idea what they were. Food was promising but would not go back.

Arrived at 8:55 pm and waited one hour and 15 min to get my food . I was not sure what the problem was but even my entree took 30 min to be served. I visited Renzos on Kennedy Blvd twice before and even that the dining space is smaller , the service is way better including food quality.
The location is awesome, I really expected more because of that .
One thing that called my attention was a couple that had the same issue and left the table with food served without paying to Fords Garage across the street . Take a look at this before loosing more clients .
