Aqui es! was advertised as an Argentinian steakhouse where they offered a variety of meats with a side of vegetables. Almost all dishes were served with potatoes and a house salad. The options we got for the group were: beef, mix of meats, and chicken. If you go here, the beef was the best in my opinion. They also had a variety of house wines and sangria. It was a tight squeeze for a group of 17 but we managed. It had a cozy feel and was overall enjoyable.

We had lunch with friends on a late Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed our meals as well as the atmosphere of the restaurant.
We shared empanadas as a starter and then had the shared plate of meat (for 2) which was huge and delicious.

I've walked by this restaurant several times and yesterday (10 Sep 18) had lunch with a friend.

No bread served which I always enjoy with a little chimichurri to start. Beef was good - not sure why they were so stingy with the small sides of french fries and eggplant.

The bill included 23% tax and tip which were NOT included in the prices - this was probably mentioned on the menu but as these charges are customarily included in the prices this represented an extra $5+/person for our lunch which brings their prices up to the level of my favorite Argentine grill which I think is a better choice.

Overall - not bud, but no compelling reason to return...

We had a late lunch here during a business trip. The service was great, and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, with a homey neighborhood-restaurant feel. The menu is surprisingly extensive: they offer a variety of pizzas, pastas and traditional Argentinian steaks, on top of the 5-6 specials of the day. The Provoleta was adequate, but nothing to write home about. The lasagna and pasta were delicious and very fresh. The Tiramisu feels homemade and packs a strong coffee flavor. Overall, it was a nice meal and a great experience.
