Had to wait to be seated due to maintaining social distancing. The restaurant was very Covid safe and they went above and beyond in terms of the service. Sat in the back patio with heating lamps- lovely. We will go back!
Delicious food, very good staff and was very safe!
Everything was just amazing! My compliments to the chef and to the FOH for a great team effort! Def going back soon!
Great time delish food!
The food, service and attention at R40 was impeccable. I received a celebratory drink for my birthday .
R40 was easily the most COVID safe restaurant that I’ve been to. Their outdoor area is heated and not enclosed. The service excellent. The food is incredible. Highly recommend and particularly for people who will only eat outdoors during the pandemic.
Amazing! Everything was impeccable. Went for a birthday - highly recommend!
Amazing food and ambiance, as an Argentinean I loved it and will be going back!
This is a great addition to the LIC restaurant scene. Highly recommend.
My favorite restaurant. Amazing food. Wonderful staff.
My boyfriend and I love R40 so my boyfriend picked it for his bday dinner. Food was great as always. The service was excellent. Ambience was romantic but not too serious. We really had a great experience. In my opinion one of the best restaurants in LIC.
The food and service were both really good. We got the choripan, napolitana chicken milanesa and skirt steak. We sat outside in the patio since they had space heaters and throughout our meal, they were incredibly attentive to make sure that we were comfortable and warm. Really enjoyed our experience and would highly recommend!
We have been wanting to go to R40 since we first saw the sign... then we got busy, then COVID happened, you know the rest. My husband's birthday seemed the perfect occasion to finally make a reservation and go. We are so happy we did. We were given excellent service, including a celebratory birthday drink, and the food was outstanding. We brought our teenaged kids, one who is vegetarian, and they loved it as much as we did. Best of all, they let you take your time. Just like in Argentina, the meal lingered, nobody there is trying to hurry you in and out... it was just perfect and we think, probably the best restaurant in Long Island City.
Overall was a pleasant dinning experience, food is very good and drinks were great!
Had a lovely time at R40. The outdoor space is beautiful and they had plenty of heaters to warm up the space even on a 45 degree evening.
Shoutouts Gio and Melvin
Great wine list and the Tomahawk Steak UNREAL, pure perfection. Unique and delicious appetizers. Moderately priced, and worth every penny!!
Food was absolutely delicious! Service was excellent and very friendly.
All around a wonderful surprise and will be coming back.
I can't say enough good things about R40! Every staff member was so friendly, knowledgeable about the wine and food, and made our experience so amazing. The cocktail were a great way to start, really well done. The mezcal drinks and mezcal old fashion were lovely. Every bite of food we had was cooked perfectly. Order the seasonal focaccia, was fantastic. Empanadas were so delicious and flavorful. My husband doesn't even like olives but the warm olives with almonds here were a big hit! The pasta was cooked perfectly and ragu on top was so full of meat! The meat platter, must order! Sweetbreads and blood sausage were the best I've ever had. Chicken thighs were cooked to perfection. The chicken milanese was simple and somehow so flavorful, best chicken I've had in a very long time, not dry at all. My only complaint is that I was SO full after the meal. :) Def go with a group and order everything so you can try it all. 10/10 will definitely be coming back very soon!
I believe our server’s name was Ana and she was very pleasant and made our anniversary extra special!
The food was good and I’m always happy when the get my steak temp perfect (medium rare).
First time in a restaurant since the pandemic began and it was a good experience.
My husband and I went to celebrate my birthday, the hostess gave us some champagne and desert on the house, extremely kind of them:) Food was absolutely delicious! All staff was super helpful and friendly. Will definitely be back!
Service ambiance food and heat lamp created a near perfect evening. No issues and even the wine choice went well with meal.
Service was awesome. Food presentation gets 5 stars too. Drinks are a bit pricey for the area. The food was average but great service always makes it taste better.
A welcome addition to Long Island City. Quality food and service. Stylish, relaxing and comfortable decor. Argentinian food with a flair. Definitely a must place visit.
Absolutely perfect. Both food and service were flawless.
The restaurant was extremely cold on the evening I went. If they had a technical issue with the heaters they should’ve told guests before arriving. The food was good but it was hard to enjoy it.
The food and waitstaff were amazing, but we drove all the way in from Northern New Jersey (over an hour) and when we got there, we were told that a message had been left for us canceling our reservation due to the weather even though there was no more rain in the forecast, people were still seated outside, and we had requested outdoor dining. We were also told we couldn’t get a table inside and we were given that news once we got there and the message was left only 7 minutes prior to our reservation time. We politely asked the greeter to speak to the manager and then we were allowed to sit outside and had a wonderful time and a delicious meal, but we were initially being turned away on 7 minutes notice.
Did a birthday dinner here as a gift and it was perfect. Complementary champagne to start and a fun firework sprinkler at dessert. The food was amazing, beautifully curated wine and cocktails as well. Great attentive staff as well. Five out of five stars.
The food was amazing, the restaurant is beautiful, and there was even live Argentine music and flamenco dancers! Was the perfect ambiance for a date night. The service was excellent! Can’t wait to go back again and again!
We went to celebrate. Birthday. The staff was very attentive. Loved the food. Will definitely come back
Great value and fine dining experience. Gem to the neighborhood! Outdoor back patio is perfect for covid dining requirements.
The best Argentinian food that we've had in a while! We highly recommend the Parrillada and Chicken Milanesa to share.
Also, the service was excellent! The manager knew we were celebrating a birthday, so he sat us inside, away from the main dining area. He was also very accommodating to the mother-to-be in our group, and brought her a delicious, virgin cocktail that was not on the menu.
R40 is definitely a must in LIC. We will definitely be back again soon!
We had an outstanding meal at R40. The food was excellent and the service could not have been better. The head waiter went out of his way to make sure we felt special on our anniversary. Additionally, the back patio was set up beautifully for dinning with space between the tables and plenty of heaters. We can’t wait to go back; a fantastic restaurant!
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. We’ll be back!
a last-minute decision to eat out became a great evening. glad to get a res so quick on a Weds night and glad to see the place busy. great local restaurant
Incredible experience for any occasion. The staff was fantastic and the food was even better! Highly recommend
This was our first night dining out since the pandemic lockdown and based on the outdoor garden and overall good reviews, I decided to make a reservation. We arrived a little early and were lead to our table which was located in a tightly packed area completely opposite of my request of a corner table. The manger came over and we explained the situation.
He then proceeded to recite their COVID procedures as though holding a press conference when all we wanted was a different seat.
He came up a with few solutions - either sit inside (?) wait for an undetermined time for an outdoor seat (?) or side walk seating (?) The night ended up in a poor experience that could’ve been remedied by an experienced manager. We ended up leave as clearly there was no effort to accommodate.
Great food and even better service all around. Ambiance is sensational too. Best outdoor dining in the area
Last night was my first time experiencing R40 and every element was carefully thought through and it showed. From the decor, cups /plates and vibe of the spot I was very impressed. Service delivered mainly by Natalia was exceptional - that I would expect in any five star restaurant in the city. Natalia’s professionalism and care and accommodation to my group was top tier and greatly appreciated. Additional service was provided by Lionel who was equally as great. Thank you R40 team, take care and be well.
The manager Pablo is fantastic and knowledgeable.
