I have eaten here several times. The space is small, but somehow I never feel cramped. The decor is simple and serene. Lots of white--white paint on the walls, white tablecloths. The service is friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. The food is excellent--there is a focus on meat, often served with various sauces. When I was here recently, one friend had the hangar steak, another had the skirt steak, I had a flattened, very tender, filet. All of us were very happy with our choices. We had grilled calamari to start and they were chewy but not rubbery and very tasty. Lots of choices for sides. Long wine list, organized red/white, and by prices ascending. They also advertise and serve fancy cocktails, which we didn't try. We drank a very reasonable malbec by the glass and were very happy. Because it's a small space, and it's New York, and we ate there pre-theater the noise level was high, but it wasn't out of control. No loud background music. I really like this place.

I'm a New Yorker, a foodie, cook and traveler. I thought the restaurant was fantastic with the exception of the regular salad. Usually bad bread and or bad salad it's downhill from there. Although the regular salad was not great at all the ceviche, fish and hanger steak were fantastic. The french fries were fantastic as well as the veggies.

We went before an early theater date. They were very accommodating to our timeline. We found the staff very friendly and chatty. Food was tasty and perfectly prepared. I wanted to return the next night for the ribeye! Prices were quite reasonable for a Manhattan restaurant. Overall, a nice experience.

Second time eating here and have no complaints.
Service was fantastic, food great!
4 of us at dinner:
We had beef and chicken empanadas and meatballs to start - both great.
We all ordered red meat (it's an Argentinian restaurant!!) for our entrees including the flattened filet Mignon and a 24oz ribeye. All steaks ordered were requested at medium rare and came out perfectly.
Chimichurri sauces are so delicious!!!
Also ordered sauted kale and spinach and grilled zucchini as sides.

Most disgusting food ever! The grilled octopus was barely grilled and covered with a slimey film and the most disgusting octopus I’ve ever had anywhere! The skirt steak covered with a fatty film and the filet mignon wasn’t any better they definitely buy the cheapest meat they can find DO NOT Eat here! I literally threw away $140 STAY AWAY you’ve been warned

As always, food was excellent - *. The reasons for the overall lower rating: (1). The service was incredibly slow. We waited at least 30 minutes for appetizers & 1 hour for our entrees. (2) We reserved a table after the theatre crowd was gone to reduce the noise level, but there was a table of 6 or so clearly drunk patrons that were literally yelling - not talking- and the staff did nothing to quiet them down. It made any conversation impossible for us & the whole evening very unpleasant. Chimmichurri has been one of our favorites but this experience has soured us on returning.

La nourriture était très bonne ! Par contre nous étions 4 sur une table de 2 alors qu il y avait largement de la place ... nous avons mangé avec les assiettes entassées les unes sur les autres ! Le service était très moyen ... on ne s est pas senti les bienvenus ... peut être à cause de la langue ! Heureusement que nous avons au moins bien mangés !

The waitress was an absolute pleasure and the food was really good. We tried the steak and it was cooked to perfection!

The only downside to our experience was the way the chef came out the kitchen to yell/curse at the delivery guy. Other than that phenomenal place

The restaurant is very tiny, but super super cute and romantic. Came here on date night right before seeing a broadway show (reservations were for 6:15 and we were out by 7:30). The service is a little on the slower end strictly because they are very busy with only 2/3 waiters. The food was delicious, cannot recommend the empanadas enough. I will be honest, I was a bit disappointed in the ribeye (the special for the night). As a steak-lover, Argentinian beef is supposed to be a big deal and honestly, it was a little dry and tough. Overall, probably would not recommend getting the $68 ribeye as other steakhouses will give you a tastier and more tender ribeye. But would definitely recommend coming here in general as my boyfriend loved their chilean sea bass (another special) and the other foods around the restaurant spelled heavenly.

EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE! THIS IS A VERY SMALL RESTAURANT SO RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST! WE HAD THE GRILLED ROMAINE SALAD , WHICH WAS EXCELLENT. MY WIFE AND I EACH HAD SKIRT STEAKS, SERVED WITH THE BEST CHIMICHURRI SAUCE ON THE PLANET. THE GARLIC FRENCH FRIES WERE ALSO EXCELLENT: MY WIFE CANNOT STOP TALKING ABOUT THEM. THE GRILLED CAULIFLOWER WAS AN EXCELLENT SIDE DISH.
WE INFORMED OUR WAITER OF A TIME CONSTRAINT, AS WE HAD THEATRE TICKETS. HE MADE SURE THAT THE ORDERS WERE DELIVERED TO US ON TIME , IN A WAY THAT WE NEVER FELT RUSHED. WE HAVE BEEN IN THE SAME SITUATION ELSEWHERE , AND FOUND THAT USING THE WORD "RUSH" MEANT FOR THE STAFF TO BRING EVERYTHING AT ONCE ( SUCH AS, APPETIZERS WITH THE MAINS). OUR WAITER AT CHIMICHURRI GRILL TIMED EVERYTHING PERFECTLY!
WE HAVE BEEN TO THIS RESTAURANT MANY TIMES, AS IT IS VERY CONVENIENT TO THE BROADWAY THEATRE DISTRICT. YOU WILL ALSO FIND THAT THEATRE DISTRICT PARKING LOTS ARE A LITTLE LESS EXPENSIVE ON THE WEST SIDE . (GET THE "SPOT HERO"APP. )
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Good steak offerings and variety of menu offerings. A little confusing at first arrival with staff not quite
"together" but once organized, all was good service and good food. A small venue so if you want to spread out or have a group, this might not be the best choice. Lovely for "a deux"
