    From the appetizers to the entree to desserts, all very appealing and tasty. Appears most all is done with a flair from Argentina and the soloist singing appropriate music while you dine was a very nice touch.

    I took my group of 16 women there for lunch. When we walked in they were prepared for us. The tables were lovely, the service (with only one waiter -Matthew) was quick and excellent, the food was delicious. I liked the argentine bistro well enough to return (we live in the east side of Cincinnati) two weeks later for dinner with friends. Once again, the same experience was had for dinner. I highly recommend the argentine bistro for dinner and lunch.

    The food was so beautiful, delicious and fresh! The portions are perfect and they had vegetarian selections as well. They had a fabulous saxophone player live during our dinner! Our waitress was adorable and very helpful. It is a very peaceful and romantic setting. WE LOVE IT!

    I came here a while back and I had an OK experience by myself, but when I came with my husband and my parents, the waiter seemed to be in a hurry to get us our food and out of the restaurant. My dinner was OK, but my husband said that his chicken was rubbery and tough to eat. My mom commented to me that she won't be back to this restaurant ever again.

    Music by Karl Dappen was excellent. The live music was a perfect background, not too loud for our group conversation, but not canned music. Gives the restaurant a more upscale feeling.

    We went here because it was a place that would let us make a reservation. It was great! It was quiet enough to carry on a conversation, even when the musician was performing. The food was wonderful, the service (by the owner) was excellent, it is close to home and the prices are reasonable.

    Argentine Bistro makes everything themselves from fresh and local ingredients whenever possible. The food is extremely good. Everything my friends and I tried we would happily order again the next time we go to this bistro.

    Had lunch here a couple weeks ago and decided to give it a try for dinner. So glad we did. Had lamb shank, which was absolutely done to perfection. Waiter was attentive, personable, and efficient. Would definitely return.

    I went to Argentine Bistro on a whim to try it out on an off day. I enjoyed the food and it was pretty quiet in there, considering that there were a maximum of 3 other tables in use the whole time that I was there. I recommend going here in the afternoons, (because it's so quiet in there at the time, apparently) and the food was good. The waitress was nice as well.

    Food was delicious, had empanada and bruschetta with goat cheese and veggie ragu to start. In our party of four, one had steak, one lamb, one pork and one salmon; all very tasty- all with roasted brussel sprouts (which i love). Very good bottle of pinot noir with dinner. and free dessert (creme brulee) because it was my birthday :) Had guitarist, playing and singing, not too loud, nice with dinner. Fear the chains (max and erma's, fridays, mo's) cutting into business. Shame, people should support, very nice restaurant.

    We were surprised that the restaurant was not that crowded when we arrived but it must have been the hour we chose to dine. We had a late lunch celebration for a birthday and almost spent the entire afternoon. The wine list was great and our server, Logan, was knowledgeable and very attentive. We could actually relax and enjoy each course along with each other's company. Portions were were sensible and delicious. It was a little pricey for our usual birthday lunches but...we did have wine, appetizers, lunch entrees and dessert. If we had just had wine and lunch it would have been on par for what we usually pay. The experience was delightful and worth the added expense.

    Logan was a our server. He was so personable and friendly, only checking on us when it was appropriate. The dessert was on the house b/c it was our anniversary. My husband ordered lamb shanks that were to die for-seriously it just melted in our mouths. I ordered the eggplant lasagna and it was so filling that I couldn't finish it. We had baked brie that was scrumptious for an appetizer and martinis throughout! The saxophone player was awesome too! We will be back.

    Can't find one thing wrong; the tapas menu very original and tasty; the crusted salmon and veggie lasagna prepared exactly right and filling. Our servers couldn't have been nicer. We'll definitely be back-- a real find!

    I made reservation for 10, and tried to call twice the day of to change to lower amount. I got answering machine each time. Left message but upon arrival it was still set for 10. Our server took forever to get drinks, food, checks, everything. And service is always that way. for 6 of us to get salads and sandwiches (with water and diet coke) shouldn't take 2 hour lunch break.

    I went on a Friday night. There was a musician singing and playing guitar. This is a pretty small place, and we sat in the opposite corner so it wasn't too loud for us. Friday was 1/2 off martini's. We ordered 4 and none of them came with anything on the rim. We ordered a cheese plate which was great. Our main course was also pretty good. But the price it was a little high for what we got. The decor is a little confusing. There are so many different hanging lights it was distracting. Also the art on the walls was a little off. From paintings of people to a huge sun with a grinning face it was a little much.

    We always have a great time when we eat at Argentine Bistro. The servers can't do enough to please us. It's great that they have house wines for $5/glass (which are quite good), and their desserts are fabulous. Let's help support this locally-owned neighborhood gem!!!

    Dined on 9/12/2013
    waited this time 20 minutes for water, longer for a menu then the wrong soup arrived after the entre and we had already canceled it. Not the fault of the only waiter, as he was seating, bartending, waiter and clean up...handling all the tables outside and inside.And there was only one waiter the last time also.Poorly managed and understaffed since it opened. A shame as it has good food and an interesting menu, good location,parking but no one ever is willing to go there with me because everyone has had the same bad experience. Also it is overpriced. Which just makes the extremely poor service an even bigger insult.
