We arrived without a reservation and the restaurant was full. Been a small restaurant there is no seating area so waited outside for a couple of minutes on the steps of a neighbouring property. Been in New York we wanted the American steak experience. Something that is hard to find in the U.K. Our waitress was lovely – efficient, charming... More

My wife and I always visit this place wen visiting our daughter in NYC. Cozy atmosphere, great service and amazing food. The BEST morcilla outside Argentina! Great selection of wines, but nothing goes better with your asado than a good Malbec. A bit of a wait even with reservations, but worth the wait. Love it!

This place is awesome, great atmosphere and the food is awesome. We had paella and tacos. The paella was possible the best I've ever had, the seafood was cooked to perfection and so tasty. Next time I'm in NYC I want to go here!

The staff was magnificent andso cheerful. We hadn't made an reservation but the staff quickly arranged a place for us to... More

Even though I don't eat meat myself, I went here together with my traveling companions in order to please their cravings for good meat. We were all more than pleased and satisfied with the food. The meat was very well prepared and the vegetarian Aji Relleno was also very tasteful. Good wines, excellent service and nice atmosphere makes this a... More

A couple of the steak dishes were sold but not a problem still plenty of choice, we have the octopus to start as recommended on... More

Recently I went to a top steak house in NYC and paid a small fortune for the food, which I was very disappointed by the following weekend I came to El Almacen. Although I've been here before it's been quite some time. Service was good, restaurant is small but that's my type of place, but the food wow, I travel... More
