    Nice place with great food. But don't sit at a table near the bar. The bartender that night kept slamming his empty bottles into the garbage. He did that about 6 or 7 times during our anniversary dinner. It was annoying and distracting. The charcuterie board was really great!

    Amazing salmon in honey, the manchego cheesecake was great and the dulce Catalina drink was yummy. The risotto was not cooked all the way but it tasted okay anyways. The band was lovely and the services too. Would visit again and its not too pricy either.

    This is a local steakhouse with an Argentinian theme. I had the ribeye and side salad, both were good, but not exceptional. Service was efficient, but not overly friendly. No complaints really; it was a good meal and I would go back, but I am not in a hurry to do so.

    Me encanta, tuve una veñada romantica con mi pareja. Muy buena la musica. Es mi tercera visita y la calidad de la comida no cambia. En cuanto a precio los platos son un poco caros pero valen la pena pagarlos. Mi plato del chuleton de ternera es riquísimo.

    For starters we had caprese salad and chrizo Al vino, both were very good. Filet mignon medium was perfectly cooked to order and the papas a la crema were 10/10. So full couldn’t order any desert but they all sounded very appetizing. Cocktails were a bit too sweet for my taste but good overall. I would give my experience a 10/10 and would definitely recommend El viejo almacén.

    This is the first time I have a bad experience in this restaurant. But it was truly terrible, we reported a shrimp allergy and they serve us shrimp. Also they brought us the wrong dessert after waiting for a ridiculously long period of time. Won’t be coming back in a while.

    Very busy restaurant. We had a mix up with our order though, very inexperienced and young wait staff. The restaurant did not make any adjustments or offer any comp on our bill and we had to accept the wrong dish. Just disappointing for the cost ($130 for two apps, two entrees, two drinks). Food was ok though everything was plated oddly (ie a beautiful steak plate that the pasta side dish was placed on top of in a bowl, rendering the sauce uneatable). The pasta swimming in sauce like a soup. Risotto was good but very salty. Doesnt seem like the staff actually understand the food they are preparing. It was easy to get a last minute reservation but it’s the only restaurant on our trip I wouldn’t recommend—not worth the convenience.

    Meal was good, meats were all good. Only negative was the risotto as both the traditional and spinach were gummy and bland. The meats for two were terrific especially the chorizo and chicken. The sea bass was also very good. Charcuterie plate was very tasty. Service was adequate but a tad slow. Drinks were well liked. Restaurant was lively with a appealing decor. Mushroom soup was outstanding. Dessert of salted dark chocolate dulce tart was fine. All in all a very nice experience, thanks.

    Food was great. Everything ordered by a party of 3 was very good, including appetizers. I wish the empanadas were the genuine baked Argentine ones instead deep fried. Independently of this, empanadas were good and well filled with the protein of your choice. Service was not bad but it took a little bit at the beginning to be helped and a bit to pay the check, this did not have a negative impact on the gratuity since service was good once we got it. Will definitely return!

    Very cute place aesthetically. However, we only saw our waitress when we ordered the meal. Then it became a game about who’s attention we could get when we needed something. My friend ordered chicken and got veal instead and didn’t realize until after she ate a piece since it was breaded (she is not a beef eater). The leg of lamb was severely over cooked. The lamb meat was very chewy and the mashed potatoes were flavorless. Would not recommend if you’re looking for a good meal.

    I went to celebrate my birthday I regret it. The greeting experience was awful, the host let us in the entrance withou telling us we could sit, she just took the reserve sign and left and went to answer the phone and let us their. The couple near us when we got their were super upset because of the service but we tried to be positive and give the waitress a chance. The service was horrible we were a couple and ordered for appetizers la Salchicha a la parrilla and she brought us one small portion, we had to ask for one more and an extra appetizer, the least she could do is recommend another choice of appetizer for the 2 of us. We did not get mad because of that, the presentation of the food was horrible, my husband had a steak and didn’t get a steak knife. The couple next to us ordered a sangria and didn’t like it they put it aside completely and it was already melting, the waitress pass y 4 times and never asked them if they disliked their drinks or if they wanted another one. We spend nearly 7 minutes with our wine glass empty she came and ask how was everything but we had to tell her to get us more wine (we were with our entres with no drinks not even water was offered). My husbands fries were super cold. We just wanted to leave and didn’t even ordered dessert. I left the waitress tip because I work in restaurant industry myself but she did not deserved any kind of tip. The manager or the owner was seated near us with some friends (they sound Argentinian or Spanish) and he was literally seating while all this caps was going around. We were not the only party that was complaining and upset. We even witnessed a party of 4 lady’s sit down, they ordered some drinks and did not spend even 10 minutes their and asked for the check and left. This place is horrible! I lead a restaurant and work in this industry and this place is a joke.
