    Extremely expensive for the type of restaurant, very informal, no table cloths. I mentioned it was my daughters bday, they told me they would sing happy bday and bring her a plate with just cream and a candle, so, since there was no dessert, according to waitress, we ordered one. Well, they brought yes a dessert good for four, but what was surprising was that under the cream they brought to her with the candle, there was a flan. When we got the bill, we were charged $10.00 for the bday singing and the candle and $16 for the dessert. I refused to pay For the $10. I was very upset. They build up your bill because they also charge beforehand for their 18% tip. Total ripoff. Service was Good food

    poor service, overpriced, resort tax?!

    The food was decent, but very overpriced. Customer service was poor; the server did not speak any English, and "assumed" I wanted the more expensive provoleta, without explaining to me it was the more expensive item on the menu. I clearly pointed to the plain provoleta and she brought the other one instead. She accused me of not telling her she brought me the wrong one, and therefore I was supposed to pay for the difference. I spoke to the manager and he still did not adjust the price. There was also a donation of $1 to Mount Sinai Medical center included in the bill, the waitress did not even ask me if I wanted to donate it. It was added without my consent. There was also a 2% resort tax?! added to my bill, and when I asked the manager he proceeded to tell me that " it was just a tax to improve tourism in Miami Beach." Not only he gave me false information, there was no disclosure, either written on verbally of such tax. Resort taxes are to be charged by an establishment such a Hotel of Motel only. Las Vacas Gordas is a restaurant only; it is not a hotel. Needless to say, the manager did not remove the tax from the bill. Conclusion: I am never going back there again.

    Poor service

    My husband and I went yesterday to celebrate his birthday, we ordered a parrillada for two, and a mix salad. We couldn't finish it, and asked the server for a side of chimichurri to go, he charged us $5.00 for a container that contains no more than a tablespoon. Plus his service was poor, the only nice person in the restaurant was the busboy, always making sure we have our water glasses full. This was the third and last time there

    Service + Food

    I just celebrated my birthday there. I didn't want any hype, but my wife insisted. The birthday song comes complete with special colorful lights & dancing plush animal cows. The server couldn't have been nicer & made great suggestions. The owner stopped by our table & was VERY interested to hear about our experience! It's a great place for any celebration or just a night out.

    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.

    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.
