Tiny portions, over priced, oily, 2 people for dinner will set you back $180. Heavy food, felt ill for 3 days after trying to digest this food. There are much better authentic South American places worth the money and hype. Avoid this place.

I arrived a bit early to Porteno and they were very apologetic about my wait, which can't have been more than 15 minutes. While the hostess could probably smile a bit more, our waiter was nothing but smiles and politeness. Veal sweatbreads were one of...More

Argentine food, of course tasty and expensive. Mixed experience, some of the dishes were great and some average. great service and wide range of wine. Meat is a must selection. its good to read a bit on Argentine food before visiting this restaurant.
