Even though I don't eat meat myself, I went here together with my traveling companions in order to please their cravings for good meat. We were all more than pleased and satisfied with the food. The meat was very well prepared and the vegetarian Aji Relleno was also very tasteful. Good wines, excellent service and nice atmosphere makes this a... More

A couple of the steak dishes were sold but not a problem still plenty of choice, we have the octopus to start as recommended on... More

Recently I went to a top steak house in NYC and paid a small fortune for the food, which I was very disappointed by the following weekend I came to El Almacen. Although I've been here before it's been quite some time. Service was good, restaurant is small but that's my type of place, but the food wow, I travel... More

I really do love this place. My favorite appetizer is the pulpo(octopus) grilled to perfection and served right on top of potato salad. OMG! I wish they had the octopus as an entree its that good. Whenever i go and no matter who I go with, we all have to order our own grilled octopus cause none of us want... More

Great food and service in NYC. A really busy resturant so book ahead. Friday nights are really congested,so, book. This is great food in a small area, and I mean inside. Be ready to talk to the next table. Nice wine list. Very attentive staff. Fab!

We came with friends to have some good Argentina meat and we had a great experience of it! The food is really good the wine as well and the truffle french fries are amazing! We strongly recommend this Brooklyn restaurant.

El Almacen is cozy and delicious. The restaurant feels like a pub, with moody lighting and wood everywhere. But there's a quirky touch of Brooklyn chic. The staff are knowledgable and accommodating, and you really get service with personality. Everything on the menu is mouthwateringly good, and cooked to perfection. Good portions, too: small plates are great for sharing. Although... More

I LOVE this place. Really - I could eat here every night. Every time I dine here I get the Hamachi appetizer - padrons, truffle, and sea salt. I've had meat here twice and each time it has been cooked perfectly. Extremely generous portions. The wine list is also solid. What adds to the experience though is the ambience, atmosphere,...
