We went at Novencento on Sunday night where we both loved our delicious steak (rare is a perfect way to appreciate it!) with a glass of Malbec ( it was a good combination!). To finish with something sweet we recommend you to try their "Dulce de leche crème brulée"!

i am writing this review just because my service was so excellent. i came with a group of coworkers who were finicky and made what could have been a scene when it came time to divide the bill. our waitress was patient, understanding, and sweet about the whole thing, a total sweetheart when she had every right to be annoyed. she made our night -- and the food was great (especially the empanadas). reasonably priced wines too. i'll be back!

was there for lunch recently - vg steak and good milanese. potatoes, both mashed and french fries, vg...but the best, very best, were the empanadas. just great! both the beef and chicken, excellent. nice place. be warned: if you go on a day there's a big soccer game, it gets mad crazy there.

We had a group of 10 for lunch on a Saturday. We were seated about 2:30 so I wouldn't consider it peak lunch time. They probably seat a maximum of 55 people, so it's relatively small. There seemed to be only one waiter and he was flustered & busy enough that he couldn't pay much attention to us. We were obviously ready to order for about 10 minutes before he came over. Granted, he was busy running around bringing out dishes and taking new orders, but they should hire an extra waiter or two. Our food was brought out at different times, I would say that we got 3 dishes, and then 7 minutes later, 3 more dishes, and then another 7 minutes after that, the rest of our order. That means we got the rest of our food a good 15 minutes after the last 3 people got their food. They also messed up an order, someone asked for fries instead of mashed potato, but they did bring the fries 10 minutes later. This led to a few people finished with their food while the others were halfway done. Timing was awful. Their linguini w/ seafood is bland and watery. Steak was pretty good, I had the steak salad. The dessert came out far too quickly which leads me to believe that it's none too fresh. A small ramekin of creme brulee should not be $8, at least not what they had. Their flan, also at $8 was quite plain. Sure, they dress it up with pretty caramel swirls but as an accessory, it doesn't add much to what you're really ordering. Another thing is that a bottle of beer costs $7. That's ridiculous. Their wine list is all bottles, and the 3 they have by the glass is too pricey. I ordered their cheapest, at $10 a glass, and the glass is so small that you could drink it in two gulps.

Being from Argentina, I was quite dissapointed with my experience at Novecento. First of all, they don't know how to handle reservations, giving me the worst table on the place when the restaurant was half full. I saw people coming from the street being turned down and other people, also walks in, being sat down. No logic at all. Second, no Quilmes, which is the argentine beer or any other argentines drinks at all which you can get in any argentine restaurant in Queens. The wine list was extremely overprice, as I usually buy those wines myself. We have two ron and coke and they were 12 dollars each. The empanadas and chorizo were good, the rest mediocre and extremelly overpriced. If you are looking for the soho experience, I think you can find a better restaurant, if you are looking for argentine food, this is not your place. Keep looking.

Have visited twice this summer. First time for wedding anniversary in May. Great service,sexy vibe to this place. Best mojitos we ever had($12 each). Bartender is from Argentina(very authentic). Steaks were very good. Molten chocolate cake was a piece of heaven. Loved this place so we came back with another couple in June. We all sat in front of the open air windows enjoying a beautiful summer evening with excellent food, drinks, and service. Only one complaint. The music was a little loud for our standards but noone else seemed to be bothered. You can't go wrong at Novecento. We can't wait to return.

I love red meat, steaks, grilled meats, cooked medium rare. I ordered a medium rare steak and received a medium well, ugh... I am pointing to the waitress with my small finger at a specific mendoza red wine bottle from the wine menu while I am describing it to order, she throws at me with attitude "they are all Mendoza!" Wow, calm down dear, why all the attitude... Mashed potatoes dry and tasteless... Grilled asparagus feels more like steamed... Bring ear plugs... The music is loud! I love house music, but when I dance, I kind of appreciate a little less volume when I am trying to feed myself... Next time, if I decide to come back, as I love the location, I will make sure to threat them of returning my Steak if it is not cooked the way I asked, or don't ask me how I like it then... My wife's steak was dry as well, my friend and his girlfriend liked the location as well, but this place needs help...
