I went to La Rural because of all the great reviews and hype I had heard of this restaurant. I'm South American so I know what a good parrillada should taste like. This restaurant has great meat, cooked and seasoned to perfection. Their mash potatoes are also to die for. Their stuffed olives are actually not that tasty and with all the hyped reviews they receive, after tasting them, I thought they were very overrated. The decor is very artisan which is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The only two downfalls were...1) My waiter Ulysses was not attentive. I had to look for him and call him over every time I wanted something. He was slow and would forget to bring what I asked. Not to say all the waiters at the restaurant are not attentive. 2) Beware...their Sangria is not made from scratch. They use Carlos Rossi sangria by the gallon, which if you bought it at your local liquor store would only be about 8 dollars for the 1/2 gallon. They pour it into a huge container, add sliced apples and oranges, and have people believe its homemade. Other than my bad waiter and the not from scratch (not homemade) sangria, my experience was ok. Like I said, meat and mash were great!!!
Pros: Example: best croissants in town
Cons: What are the drawbacks?
