Small place, very loud. Service is attentive and efficient but not friendly. Food from beginning to end was excellent! Large portions, too. Selective wine list at ~2.5x retail, which is reasonable. I can recommend.

Unfortunately the food wasn't great. The staff were very friendly and atmosphere was great... however, the risotto was bland and overcooked. The beef rib was cooked well (at some point) as it was falling off the bone but unfortunately my whole dish came out luke...More

The restaurant is small but cosy. It's easy to have a conversation, service is friendly and attentive and, most importantly, the food is delicious. We'll be back for sure.

Fantastic little Argentinian restaurant in the Chelsea area. I'd recommend reserving a table (you can do this online) as it is a very small place. Definitely worth a visit. The staff, service, food and drink were all top notch!

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
