All the empanadas were great, can't fault anything we ordered. The Dulce de leche icecream with the bread pudding was the best. I found the cold avocado soup a little bland, but service and everything else made up for it.

Finding a great restaurant in NYC at a reasonable price is not easy. Porteño meets the bill. The pros are friendly staff, good food, intimate setting, reasonable prices. The cons are noise level can be high, and empanadas. A cauliflower special starter was amazing.

3 of us came here for lunch and we all chose rib eye steak. It was absolutely fantastic and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed the ambiance of this small restaurant. Very charming

We came here for dinner on Memorial Day weekend. We had reservations and it's a good thing we did. Place is tiny and was packed. Cocktails were great ($16), food was very good. We had empanadas (3 for $13), grilled vegetables, a salad and rigatoni with Argentinian sausage. The rigatoni was the only thing that didn't wow us. Service was top notch. Our server was very friendly and let us take our time, ordering one dish at a time, so we could see how full we were after each.

Small place, very loud. Service is attentive and efficient but not friendly. Food from beginning to end was excellent! Large portions, too. Selective wine list at ~2.5x retail, which is reasonable. I can recommend.
