    Great Food.. Poor Service

    A friend of mine invited me to Brooklyn this weekend and, as always, was super excited about dining there. Believe what I, as well as the majority of the people on here have said, the food is great, but the service is poor. The food was seasoned well and the steaks were cooked to perfection, but the service could not have been worse. From the start, we were told there would be a 30 minute wait - ok - no worries - we went to the bar across the street. After 45 minutes, we didn't get a call and deciced to walk back. The hostess was like.. oh.. umm.. I think I might have forgotten about you. It was 10pm at this point and we were starving. It took them 20 minutes to get a cheese plate and guacomole to our table along with some bread (which we had asked for a few times). Again, the guacomole was good.. not spicy enough, but good. What was the worst was that we felt like we were the ones who kept asking for things and she never asked us if we wanted anything. With all the other amazing options in Williamsburg - there is no need to resort yourself to poor service.

    unassumingly delicious

    given some of the reviews regarding service price and portions i was shocked by how much my experience was nothing short of awesome. margarita with only simple syrup and lime was just the way it should be. guacamole, definitely too small of portion for $8 and 3-4 people, was the only dish i ordered out of proportion. i split the the baby back ribs and corn stuff and chile relleno. what a nice combo and with the healthy portions splitting gave me just the amount of both. my friend had the chicken in enchilada which i had a healthy portion of as well because it was so good. warm chocolate cake? delicious. either it was the munchies or that food was amazing. and perhaps they've made some changes since those older reviews were submitted.

    Loved it here!

    I absolutely love this place, I am glad I do not live nearby or I would be 200lbs. Avocado fries? omg, so good. I had the grilled octopus with homemade potato salad and had to order a second plate. It is pricy that dish but worth it! i loved the music they were playing and had to shazam 2 songs.

    Loved it!

    Very laid back athmosphere, with a pleasant patio in the back. The food is great-all Argentine specialties are done just right, maybe except for the empanadas. I remember having some fried empanadas there that I didn't care much for, so we never ordered that again, but everything else on the menu is just fantastic! I love the steaks. Make sure you go hungry! Ps. Their Santa Julia Reserva Malbec is just heaven! Goes well with your steak :)

    Fantastic food!!

    The food is fantastic!! I ordered Matambrito de Pollo and Ensalada de Reomolacha, both were DELICIOUS. It was so good I actually considered asking the chef how it was prepared. The restaurant is cute, great atmosphere, very cozy. It's great for friends and i'm sure it would be great for a date as well. I'm definitely planning on coming back and trying the other dishes on the menu.

    what disappointing service

    the food was ok, the place is cute. the service was lacking. the servers had no clue what was what. my meal (we were 7) never made it. my friend got the wrong dish... no one seem to care... and the bill was over $400. n
