Recommended Mostly For Their Meat... 4/14/2009

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? more

Just Amazing 11/14/2008

I went with my husband for my wedding aniversary. The T-bone steak is to die for. The aceitunas rellenas they are just amazing, and what can i tell about sangria i just love it. Andres our waiter that night was very attentive. I saw a review that someone one posted and let me tell you that you should go out more often to nice restaurants; in any restaurant they will charge if you bring a cake from outside. Restaurants sell desserts, it's like if you want to bring your own food. There is a corkage fee if you want to bring your own bottle of wine cause they sell wine; so they do the same thing with dessert. La Rural is a place where you will have a great dining experience. The person of the bad review get educated please Pros: Food, Service more

Excellent food 11/14/2008

I went there with my boyfriend for our first year anniversary because he is Argentinean and there are not many places which serve good Argentinean food in NY City, I did some research about this place and I wanted to impress him... I ordered the Lamb chop while he ordered the skirt steak, we both agreed that our meals where delicious, tasty, juicy and very well cooked; in top of that we were able to pair our meals with a good bottle of Argentinean wine :-). Service was excellent and the manager, was very good as well. We wanted to try the panqueques de dulce de leche but after such a good meal, there was not room for desert. Pros: a great dinning experience more

great steaks, great ambiance 9/13/2008

Ever since we found this restaurant when it used to be called Pampa, we've been coming back at least twice a month. It is the center of our meetings, made cheerful with the very friendly staff and simple yet cozy atmosphere. We are always seated promptly even when we don't have a reservation, and the wine bar makes for a nice waiting spot if there is a wait. Pros: affordable steaks, ambiance, good for groups, outdoor seating Cons: have had an occasional mix-up of orders more

GREAT SERVICE AND STEAK 7/8/2008

Love this place!!! Steak is great ( and I have been to Argentina and know what good steak should taste like) and the service is even better! The staff is extremely friendly and you often feel like you are a friend and not just a customer. Pros: Great food and service more

Best Authentic Argentine food in NYC and Great service! 4/28/2008

I went here with my family over the weekend and had a great meal. I've been to Argentina many times and loved the food there so we thought we'd try it. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with friendly service. We were seated promptly which was also a plus. We ordered a bunch of appetizers (empanadas, salads etc) and loved them all. The parilla style meats were tender & juicy just like in Argentina. The wines were just as tasty as the ones we tried in Mendoza at the vineyards. We will definitely go back when we want to experience Argentina without having to fly for 10 hours! It's also great for kids. Pros: great fresh food and friendly service. more

Fantastic Steaks, Great food, Great ambience 4/11/2008

My husband and I ate at La Rural last night and we thought it was the best Argentine food offered in Manhattan. We honeymooned in Argentina this past October, and have visited four other Argentine restaurants since then. This one was the best. The steaks are unbelievably flavorful, juicy and perfectly cooked. The empanadas were amazing, by far the best we've had since the honeymoon. The service was fantastic. We can't wait to go back. Pros: Amazing steaks, Amazing food, Great ambience, Friendly service Cons: I honestly can't think of one more
