Some of our food was decent, but some wasn't up to our expectations. If I'm spending $150 for dinner for two, the food needs to be great. The atmosphere here is nice, and the servers were attentive, but when I have to sign a check...More

Had lunch with business associate just the two of us. We shared a calamari app, which was really great, had fresh tomatoes and avocado drizzled in light oil but the main star was fresh calamari. Not deep fried, fresh grilled in a bowl. Nice start....More

When coming into the restaurant we were impressed by the surroundings, small but very pleasant. We were immediately visited by a attentive server. She announced the specials and my colleague ordered a branzino and I ordered the rack of lamb from her pronouncements. While we...More

Went with an Argentinian business colleague and had steak dishes. Never had this type of food before and it was very good.

Not, perhaps, as exclusively Argentine as places such as Buenos Aires in the East Village, but terrific steak and top-notch empanadas. A bit cramped, but friendly and attentive service.

This restaurant is by far the best of it kind. The chipa guazu with the short rib is like traveling Baco in time when my mom used to cook. I recommend this place. One of the most authentic Argentinian food you could have in New...More

This place is amazing. Had a wonderful dinner. The food is really good, the Empanadas are Fantastic, the Beef was great and the dessert was out of this world. And the cherry on the cake, the service. Sasa and Josu did an amazing job. Thanks...More

The service and food were fantastic in this small place. Good wine and desert (bread pudding) but the charred octopus on salad appetizer may be my new favorite thing ever. Empanadas were fantastic as well (try all three). We will return next time we are...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
