Great Latin Fare – I came here with some girlfriends and I am very happy with my dinner.
I got the quesadilla with grilled chicken and sauteed spinach. the quesadilla is filling and it has tons of chicken inside. The salsa is a little weak but the overall flavor is excellent.
I also tried the skirt steak here and it was very flavorful and juicy. Got the coupon online and it was definitely a great deal.
GREAT PLACE-WONDERFUL STAFF AND MGR. – For the past 2 Valentine's Day, my boyfriend and I have celebrated at Novecento. The manager there (Maria), treated us like family. She accommodated us to a very romantic corner table upstairs and checked in with us during the course of the night making sure we were comfortable and that the food was to our expectations.
The menu was pre-fix and the price ($60 pp) was great with generous food portions including a bottle of champagne. The empanadas were amazing!
The vibe was definitely romantic, service was excellent and overall a really great time.
We highly recommend Novecento!!!
Awesome food for a VERY reasonable price. I love mediterranean food and this was right up there with the best. Friendly service also. Will definitely go back again.
GREAT STEAKS, AMBIANCE AND SERVICE – I ADORED MY EXPERIENCE HERE...I WILL BE BACK !! YOU MADE ME FEEL AT HOME AND LIKE IF I WAS PART OF THE FAMILY. THE SERVER WAS ATTENTIVE AND GUIDED ME WELL THROUGH MY DIFFICULT NEEDS. THE MEAT...I HAD THE RIBEYE; WAS FANTASIC. MANY CHOICES OF MALBECS AND YOU HAVE TO TRY THE PANQUEQUES DE DULCE DE LECHE....BEST DESERT EVER.
THE CHIC EURO-LATINO VIBE THAT WERE HOSTING AN EVENT IN THE MALBEC ROOM WAS THE PLACE TO BE AFTER DINER. I HEARD THESE PARTIES GO ON EVERY FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS...
I RECOMMEND THE PLACE TO ANYONE WHO WANT INTIMATE COZY FUN ENVIRONMENT!
RIP OFF!!!!!! – VISITED THIS PLACE ON CHRISTMAS DAY. WE CALLED BEFOREHAND TO ASK IF THERE WAS A SPECIAL MENU AND WERE TOLD IT WAS THE REGULAR MENU. THIS PLACE WAS AWFUL. THERE SEEMED TO BE ONLY ONE WAITRESS AND SHE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE HAPPY TO BE WORKING ON CHRISTMAS. SHE TOLD US THERE WAS NO MORE BREAD (WE WERE SEATED AT 6 PM). HOWEVER, BEING SEATED NEAR THE BACK WE COULD SEE THERE WERE LOAVES OF BREAD IN THE KITCHEN. ABOUT 25 MINS. LATER SHE BOUGHT US ONE SMALL BASKET OF BREAD FOR 8 OF US. THE SANGRIA IS GOOD BUT AT $50 A PITCHER IT IS NOT WORTH IT. I SEE NO RESEMBLANCE TO ARGENTINE FOOD HERE. THE CHIMICHURRI SAUCE WAS SO OILY IT WAS USELESS. THE MENU WAS NOTHING LIKE THE ONE ONLINE (AND THE PRICES WERE HIGHER IN THE RESTAURANT). THE MENU WAS VERY SMALL WITH FEW CHOICES. I ORDERED THE RIBEYE STEAK, WHICH WAS DONE TO MY LIKING AND VERY TASTY BUT NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY. IT CAME WITH SPINACH AND SWEET POTATOES, NEITHER OF WHICH I LIKE. I ASKED IF I COULD HAVE A DIFFERENT POTATO AND THE WAITRESS SAID "OH, NO. THE CHEF DOES NOT MAKE SUBSTITUTIONS." WHAT!? NOT TO SWITCH TO MASHED OR FRENCH FRIES BOTH OF WHICH ARE ON THE MENU AND AT THOSE PRICES IS INEXCUSABLE. WERE THEY JUST TRYING TO GET US TO PAY FOR SIDE DISHES? SEVERAL ORDERED THE SKIRT STEAK AND COULDN'T EVEN EAT IT. ONE ORDERED THE PASTA AND SAID IT WAS AWFUL. WE WERE NOT TOLD (IT IS NOT STATED ON THE MENU OR ANYWHERE ELSE) THERE IS A 20% GRATUITY ADDED (WE WERE 8 PEOPLE). ALL IN ALL WE LEFT $560+ DOLLARS IN A RESTAURANT WHERE THE SERVICE IS POOR, THE FOOD IS MEDIOCRE AND THE PRICES ARE WAAYYYYYY TOOOO HIGH! YOU CAN DO MUCH BETTER. DO NOT GO!

THAT'S ALL BAD, RESTROOM SMELL VERY BADLY..
VERY POOR AND DIRTY RESTAURANT IN SOHO
Eh .... Try to Avoid – We had a group of 10 for lunch on a Saturday. We were seated about 2:30 so I wouldn't consider it peak lunch time. They probably seat a maximum of 55 people, so it's relatively small. There seemed to be only one waiter and he was flustered & busy enough that he couldn't pay much attention to us. We were obviously ready to order for about 10 minutes before he came over. Granted, he was busy running around bringing out dishes and taking new orders, but they should hire an extra waiter or two. Our food was brought out at different times, I would say that we got 3 dishes, and then 7 minutes later, 3 more dishes, and then another 7 minutes after that, the rest of our order. That means we got the rest of our food a good 15 minutes after the last 3 people got their food. They also messed up an order, someone asked for fries instead of mashed potato, but they did bring the fries 10 minutes later. This led to a few people finished with their food while the others were halfway done. Timing was awful.<br><br>
Their linguini w/ seafood is horribly bland and watery. Steak was pretty good, I had the steak salad. The dessert came out far too quickly which leads me to believe that it's none too fresh. A small ramekin of creme brulee should not be $8, at least not what they had. Their flan, also at $8 was quite plain. Sure, they dress it up with pretty caramel swirls but as an accessory, it doesn't add much to what you're really ordering.
Another thing is that a bottle of beer costs $7. That's ridiculous. Their wine list is all bottles, and the 3 they have by the glass is too pricey. I ordered their cheapest, at $10 a glass, and the glass is so small that you could drink it in two gulps. This forced me to take very small sips, and since we waited so long, I needed 2 glasses, and I would say the total amount of wine in both glasses equal a regular amount at a different restaurant's one glass.
Great beef and excellent service – Novecento proved to be a great Soho dining experience. Our server, Luis, was from Brazil and provided nothing but first-rate service. We began the evening at the bar and were promptly waited on until our table was ready at exactly 9:30. At the table, we started with the Picada Criolla. One order was enough for the entire table; the chorizo and skirt steak were excellent. I ordered the special of the night: grilled rib-eye with sauteed spinach and potato gratin. The rib-eye was very tender and the "chimichurri" sauce was a great complement to the meat. Another highlight at the table was the grilled skirt steak. Portions were ample yet not humongous. We did not have dessert, although I imagine it was delicious.
Great food and friendly waitstaff but manager was arrogant – I had a great dinner last Saturday night, we arrived at 10 and were promptly seated. The food was perfect and our waiter was really nice. What ruined our dinner was that the music was turned on noticeable louder at about 11- 11:30, so much louder that we could not have a conversation. My friend talked to the manager on duty to see if he could do something, his reply was " this is our trademark, loud music, there's nothing we can do" in an arrogant and snobby way. We were very upset the rest of the time we were there and could not believe his answer; even our friendly waiter apologized. I thought it was rude and unpolite to answer like that to a customer.
