I go here fairly regularly for my red meat fix. I love their skirt steak and their filet mignon. Their sides are also pretty good. Be sure to order a pitcher of sangria! I don't recommend the pasta dishes because they're really not on par with anything else here. Besides, why eat pasta at a steakhouse?!

La Portena has been getting some good press and the buzz grows. Churascarias are 5minutes ago, and S.American steak is in. LaPortena offers steaks that you can't always find at traditional steakhouses (flank, skirt, etc.), it's not just strips and porterhouses, plus they add some flair to the menu items. Rather simple in preparation, they let the meat do the tallking. The best part about this place is the prices are VERY reasonable. For the same as dinner at any chain steakhouse (outback, lonestar, etc.) you can get a MUCH better steak dinner. Sure, its not the Palm or Sparks, but its good, friendly and affordable. Looking forward to my next visit.

A great dining expierence. Excellent food was cooked perfectly to order, served in a timely fashion, and best of all was delicious. The portions are huge, so bring your appetite. The prices are so reasonable i felt like i robbed the place. If you dont leave full, you need to go on a diet!

I adore La Portena. I ate there once and I was hooked. The steaks are deliciously juicy and have so much flavor, but not too much to overwhelm. They have great wine to accompany the meat and the mashed potatoes are light and fluffy...absolutely to die for!

A carnivores paradise where one can easily attain a ratio of 8 meats to 1 sitting. Save intellect for wine and opt for Argentine Antipasto: Matambre, hunger killer, a flank steak roulade with hard boiled egg and carrot, chimichurri soaked lengua, marinated eggplant and potato salad with peas. The chicken Guacho Pie is remarkably appealing. There's no point avoiding the Parrillada mixta, a metal trough laden with short ribs (grilled to juicy perfection), sweetbread, blood (unremarkable) and pork (slightly dry) sausages and skirt steak. La Portenas signature beef Milanese, is buried under sumptuous cream sauce. After sitting down with Don Pedro (vanilla ice cream with scotch and walnuts) finding even the mammoth E,V,F,R,G,7 station may prove difficult. Wrap up with Cachamai tea and youll find this wood and mirror clad joint has more to offer than the unsettling headshot of Donald Trump and posters of Carlos Gardelit offers meatglorious meat.

Pros: quite good service, nice argentine wines, atypical sountrack

Cons: , nearly too bright

La Portena is a very good, authentic Argentinean restaurant. The steak is not any more chewy than it should be, and is very tasty. my mouth waters just thinking about a good parrillada at Portena. If you want a better steak, a flight to Argentina is about $800.
