They brag steaks and meats are their specialty, but the steak I had was grizzly and tough, even though it was cooked medium rare. Most of wait staff very friendly and helpful but one of them would not give me change for a $10. Made an excuse they had no change. And she didn't even check so I knew she was lying.

It was wonderful! The food was delicious. We ordered a mixed grill for 2 which had a little of all their meats!! Everything was was uniquely great! The pork was especially good! We definitely will return!
Our waiter Humberto was very helpful. He guided me through the wines and made excellent suggestions!
I look forward to trying their St Petersburg location next!

My friend ordered 3 different drinks and each time they came back and told her they didn't have them.

The steak I ordered was rather chewy and very tough to cut through with a LOT of fat. The yucca fries on the side were disappointing as well and tasted frozen.

My friend ordered the ravioli and Alfredo sauce, but the sauce was so thick it looked more like the consistency of butter than sauce.

The wait staff was very kind, but a little slow given the restaurant wasn't very packed.

Oh, and the outside seating is in a parking lot...

One of my regular go-to places for steak. Quality is invariably excellent and the prices are more than reasonable.

Food is overall good. Service not so much. Inattentive wait staff. Brought out meals staggered on a party of four and brought two meals out before the appetizer. Refused to sub my kids fries for vegetables. I understand "no substitutions" but seriously? My wife's gnocchi came bathed in parmesan. She doesn't like parmesan and her white wine came very warm. Will not return.

Not what we expected after reading the review in the newspaper. The platters of steak and one of steak and other meats arrived on heated Hibachi type units, floating in grease! The meats had been ordered medium rare, but were so thin they all came out well done. The greasy residue on the meats made them extremely unappetizing. The small iceberg and tomato salad looked and tasted like it came from a MacDonald's. The wine and the plantains were both tasty.

Some of the food was great, some of it was good.
Very good service (not sure what other people are talking about).
Price was ridiculously low in my opinion, so as the value goes, it's awesome.

The churrasco grilled steak & the churrasco al polo were quite tasty. However the french fries were under-cooked and the cheap frozen type. That was very disappointing.
However the Argentinian wine list was extensive and vey reasonable. A. good reason to return.

The atmosphere here is on the casual side..clean and cute but more like a lunch cafe than a dinner spot. We ordered the 7 meat sampler for two with sides, wine and desserts. The Sampler was brought to our table on a brazziere and was deliciously prepared, perfectly medium rare...exactly as ordered. When I first glanced at the wine list...I thought there must have been a mistake...the opening price for a bottle reads more like the price of a glass..so when I ordered a moderately priced wine..I wasn't sure what I was going to get....but wow was it delicious...we even bought a second bottle to take home. This is great spot when you want a delicious steak and some vino.... with out much fuss all at a great price. We will definitely be back.
