Our Rib Eyes were superb and cooked to perfection. The Heart of Palm salad with Gulf Dressing was unusual and wonderful. There are three Argentinean wines on the list (by the glass) and when I asked for a recommendation, the most expensive one was suggested....More

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
