2nd location by city college???? – We came in at 6:30pm on a Monday night and were quickly seated. We were told there was not yet a liquor license (which is understandable for a new-ish restaurant), but they only had fruit juice and water, no other drinks. We tried to order two appetizers, fried calamari and a sausage platter. The sausage platter which was $10, had 2 small sausages on it. It was decent tasting but seemed a bit expensive for what we got. They were out of calamari and no alternative was suggested . We ordered 3 meals: a $21 medium rare skirt steak, a $23 medium rare fillet mignon, and a $23 VERY (still moo-ing) rare filet mignon. The skirt steak was the cheapest steak on the menu. Our steaks arrived on sizzling platters and continued to cook quite quickly on the plate. The medium rares ended up 1 under cooked and one overcooked, the rare basically medium rare. The filet mignons were also not filet mignons. They were very large, fatty misshaped hunks of meat. The flavor was okay but the texture was abominable. The mashed potatoes were okay but nothing to write home about, the steak fries barely passable, completely unseasoned. There was a bit of pico de gallo on the plate, but no vegetables nor were there any to be ordered as side dishes. After dinner, we were asked if we wanted desert. I said probably not but asked to see a menu in case I could be enticed while they wrapped my leftover 2/3 of a steak and 1/2 order of mashed potatoes. The waiter took my plate and said they didn't have one before walking away. 10 minutes later we flagged down the waiter (who was busy flirting with the waitress behind the bar) to ask for the check. He brought it back a few minutes later and hidden on the very bottom was a $12 service charge. When we asked he said they add 15% once an order is over $60. This was not mentioned anywhere on the menu or when we sat down or ordered. I decided that was his tip and we sat for a while waiting for change before we left the exact amount and got up to leave, with me never receiving my take home bag. Dinner for 3 with one appetizer and no beverages was $94.27. For that price I'd much rather have eaten downtown. Even with it's uptown location close to my house, I will never eat here again.
A great find – I just recently moved to the area and found ths place by chance. Its a great argentine restaurant with a great ambiance. The entrana was delicious.
