Impeccable service. Fantastic food. Though famous for steaks try the grilled Sea Bass! Side order of mushrooms - tasty! Not inexpensive but well worth a special occasion dinner. Be sure and make reservations. Not a large restaurant but nice setting.

More than 30min before closing they turned us away because it was a "slow night". I was actually going in there for my birthday dinner. Super disappointed. I worked in restaurants for years and years...no excuse for this.

If you enjoy a true Argentinean meal, especially steak, Garufa is a must stop and dine. A great setting with good wine to top off the fantastic meal is how I would reference this place. If you like steak don't miss this place

My daughter and I dined here July 1st, 2016. I had no idea we were in for such a wonderful experience. Neither of us had any prior experience with Argentine cuisine but we both became big fans after our visit to Garufa. We arrived around 5:30 on a Friday with no reservations but we were greeted quickly and professionally by... More

We dined at Garufa on a recent Saturday night. The live music started about 9 pm and was reasonably understated, and fortunately there was no large party in the middle of the room, so the general atmosphere was good. We ordered an appetizer, and a bottle of wine. After about ten minutes our server returned and said they did not... More

The food was delicious, but the service could use some improvement. I would recommend everything on the menu. It looked delicious.

This is the third time me and my wife come here for dinner. Excellent service! Awesome food, steaks delicious. Try the Atun Carpacio appetizer. Real tasty. Try to go Fridays because they have live musician. I will continue to come here. Come here for a nice, romantic, tasty dinner.

Food is over rated and over priced. Watching the cleanliness of the staff is depressing. The waiters in their spare time use napkins to take the spots off the wine glasses against health department regulations and if you sit in the right place you can watch the cooks eat as they prepare your food, also against health department regs.
