We had a great time at Novecento! Great steaks (esp. the entra~na), very good wine selection (inexpensive, too) and a very pleasant atmosphere -- perfect for dinner with friends and good conversation.

A friend and I stumbled upon Novecento while shopping in Soho. It was a beautiful Friday afternoon, and although they didn't have outdoor seating, the restaurant front was open to the street, which made it so that we could enjoy the weather but still be in the shade. The restaurant was about half full when we arrived and almost completely full when we left, but we never had to raise our voices. We both had the chicken guacamole salad, which was fantastic and very filling. The waiter was attentive until we finished our meal, at which point it took a long time to get the check, but they continued to refill our water glasses and seemed content to let us stay as long as we wanted without pressuring us to leave. Overall, we had a fantastic time.

Having lived in B.A. - and been to the Novecento there and in Miami - I have to say while Novecento is OK - its not where I go for a true culinary trip home. Its Argentine food for the gringos - overpriced, fussed up, and they make an exquisite dish like mollejas by sauteing rather than grilling them. THe place is cramped, the lights too dim and I could not see my food, the music too loud - so I had to yell at my date most of the time and the waiter did not speak spanish. 3 of the wines I ordered were out of stock. Very disappointing! For a place that most NYorkers associate as Argentine - this place should really try and change their menu, service, and ambience to make it a more pleasurable experience.

Nice atmosphere, good service and good food. Maybe the wine cart could be improved, especially knowing the exquisite wines that Argentina had given in the last years. Anyway, a place to try!

I actually have been to the restaurant twice. The first time it was for lunch over two years ago and I though it was good. I returned for dinner about a month ago and was not very impressed, particularly with the selection of the menu and the atmostphere. Also, if I go to an Argentinean restaurant I expect to get a full Argentinean experience, after all one is only nostalgic. Therefore a waiter that does not speak Spanish and a poor menu selection is unimpressive to me. To add on to that point, I have never eaten in what I would say is a very simple Argentinean menu under dim light and distubing noisy music . Restroom facilities were unimpressive as well. I also think that for a "Milanesas con pure" dish we over paid. I would definitely recommend a similar venue in New Jersey "La Fusta" that offers a more diverse and real Argentinean menu for a better price and more comfortable atmosphere.

I've been to the Novecento in Buenos Aires, Miami, and Soho. They are all good. Is the perfect place for a cheap date..... Try the ham & cheese empanada with the skirt steak... can't go wrong. Dont forget a nice Merlot from Mendoza... the whole meal won't cost much more than $110.

My boyfriend, who is of Argentinean origin, decided to take me there for dinner last week. Being of Greek origin, I was skeptical at first. However, I must say that I was impressed. The food was great, and the people were quite pleasant. It's a great place with both a Latin American and European vibe.
