    Over hyped !

    Don't bother with this place unless u don't mind severely overpaying for steak you can get at several other decent steakhouses, or charged off menu prices for other items. Speaking of secret charges, expect to pay a resort tax with your bill! I definitely agree with other reviewers that the service was deplorable. Snobby , unhelpful staff looked bored, were not courteous, and never came back to check on us (the humble attentive busboy was the one exception). Ambiance was unimpressive and layout of restaurant was uncomfortable. We even had a smoker light up as we were receiving our food ! Pretentious and undeserving of its alleged reputation best describes this place and my experience.

    Not recommended

    Clue should have been when we were told to go eat some place else. After having appetizers and a few drinks the diner we came for Veal was not available. Excuse was that it was frozen. They said they could not unfreeze it. When asked to speak with the manager we were told he was busy and would come by in a little while. After 15 minutes we ordered something else but manager never came by even after asking for him 7 times. The first wine we asked for was not available and the one we ordered was corked but it was never replaced. I know it’s not corked because of anything they did but establishment usually replaces the bottle when this happens. Finally we had our meal and it was OK. We were very disappointed that the manager never came to see us or did anything about it. He could have told the waiter to get us another bottle but he didn’t so we drank water. Not a good experience and they did not care for us so I will not go back.

    Not worth the trip

    We drove 35 miles thinking to have a good argentinean dinner. We were very disappointed. Asked for the house wine, they didn't have it. Asked for grill Provoleta (it was also on the menu) but they don't serve it since six month ago. Jamon Crudo con ensalada Rusa. The prosciutto was cheap not well cured and very salty Carando brand from Canada. They should go and purchase a better one and inexpensive one at Costco. Then we asked parrillada, I never saw a parrillada without asado or short ribs. Empanadas are good when they are juicy but this ones the juice was just oil with paprika. Only good thing the panqueques with dulce de leche. Despite other bad reviews about service, it was not bad at all. Very disappointed.

    The meat is great but food is overpriced. The place is small, service is not good, and even if portions are very big they should offer a small portion at an affordable price considering that the restaurant is not fancy at all.
