Great girls night out!
Myself and 2 girlfriends had a great evening at L'Atelier d'Argentine. The food was outstanding. The wine and cocktail list was extensive and the service was great. We ordered the ribeye which was done exactly as we asked. The chimichurri and salsa were great accompaniments.
We would definitely go back!

Trendy but approachable
We loved this restaurant and although there were just two of us dining...we were jealous of the large groups drinking wine and soaking up the atmosphere. We commented that it would be great to be here with friends. Very chic setting, but not stand-offish. The food was very, very good. Nice wine list and great service.
We were lost, called the restaurant and you could hear how busy they were and they took the time to give us landmarks without sounding annoyed or put upon. When we arrived they greeted us with a huge smile, welcomed us and seated us right away. We've been going to Montreal for 20+ years, have enjoyed many different restaurants. We have already recommended it to friends and are looking forward to visiting again next year.

Nice ambiance, if a bit loud, and excellent authentic Argentinian food.

First experience at this restaurant left us with a very good impression, food is great, service is outstanding and the overall ambience of the restaurant is excellently thought through, From the large tables for family and friends to the bench facing the old port for a romantic dinner...
Food was great, excellent meat selection, preparation was spot on. We loved the wine selection and signature cocktails.
My only comment would be on the noise level but even then, waiter offered us to drop the music level once we asked him to.
Great experience, would go back for sure and will recommend it without a doubt!

Hot Spot In The Old Port
We were a group of 6 people, which is difficult to book in MTL. I found L'Atelier d'Argentine on open table & thought we'd give it a try. The ambiance/design of the restaurant was very modern with glass walls, unique light fixtures, & dark furniture. The menu had many delish options for food & wine. We started off with pre-dinner cocktails, I had a passionfruit mojito - so good! We ended up all ordering some variety of steak, & none of us was disappointed. One of our steaks did come overdone, but they quickly rectified the problem & brought out a replacement. If you stay for dessert, you must try this bannana dulche-de-leche crepe - it was to die for!
The one thing that made our night was the service - best service we had in MTL.

Good food, good ambience
Enjoyed the food and service was very good. We appreciated the décor which shows imagination in creating new lighting fixtures.
We had a great lunch with friends and we also experienced L'Atelier in the evening to celebrate birthdays while remembering our travel to Buenos Aires.

Good food and attention to detail
Situation 1. A couple of friends arrived 15 minutes after everybody had ordered their food. They order different cuts of meat and the waiter suggested them that if they wanted their food to be served at the same time than the rest, they could order a different cut of meat or keep the same cut and have it grilled "butterfly" mode (cut sideways, opened, facing the grill). That is "added value", it was valuable information provided to the client.
Situation 2. Somebody in our table dropped a knife. Literally, by the time the person was lifting the knife form the floor, the waiter was putting a clean knife on the table.

Best steak I've had in Montréal, service was impeccable, will definitely come back!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm very glad I had to try Atelier d'Argentine. I will definitely go back for lunch or try out dinners. Amazing decor!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great spot
L'Atelier d'Argentine lived up to its billing on this visit. Great and attentive service, good recommendations on food and wine selections and generally an authentic Argentine experience in food we were served. (All we need know is a bit more of the true Argentine music (from tangos to chamames). The one recommendation: A greater selection of wine by the glass at the bar and make sure that the right liquor is available for the drinks on the list (e.g. cachaca and pisco which they did not have and which are the key ingredient in a lot of their drinks). This should not distract those however that want to have a good evening out to enjoy a classy ojo de bife (ribeye).
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had friends over from out of town, the food and service was excellent. I will go back for sure.

versatile+vibrant in Old Montreal
Have eaten here on several occasions with different friends. Food is always excellent. Service seamless. Decor detailed and different. Wonderful wine list. Unpretentious yet cool atmosphere. And in addition to a wonderful selection of Argentinian beef cuts, there are fish and seafood selections, and for fellow vegetarians there is a welcome selection of dishes. Moreover, the charming chef from Buenos Aires is more than happy to accommodate to special needs.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food! Great atmosphere!
The food is fantastic! Had the gaspacho, chilean sea bass and quinotto and all were delicious. The desert, panequeques, was particularly impressive. The staff were very accommodating and extremely helpful in answering questions about the menu. Atmosphere was comfortable and very relaxing with great music!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had wonderful food and even better service when we went this week. I was pleased 100%.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I absolutely recommend it!
Wine list was excellent, service was wonderful, and the atmosphere was fun and energetic. Decor was very modern and fun. And the food was delicious! We had gnocchi, t-bone, fries, and the empanadas between us. All were great! Best gnocchi I have ever had. Perfectly seasoned empanadas. I absolutely recommend it!

Saveurs. musique et passion
Première visite dans ce chaleureux resto au look très branché. La nourriture est excellente. La terrine de pieuvre et les beignets aux épinards nous ont permis de réaliser un excellent départ lors de cette soirée. La suite composée du Bar du chili et sa salade de mangue a su nous régaler. De l'autre côté de la table, les côtelettes d'agneau légèrement trop cuites étaient accompagnée d'un morceau de gigot fort tendre et savoureux.
Le gâteau au fromage de chèvre et le sorbet au citron ont conclut ce repas savoureux.
Belle soirée soutenu par une DJ passionnée et une musique stimulante nous rappelant les années 80.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
por un restaurant argentino solo falta un poco de español dans la atencion
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Un belle découverte
Nous avons choisi le menu anniversaire (disponible pour un temps limité cependant) avec vins assortis et nous avons été enchantés par les mélanges de saveurs avec une très belle présentation. À deux pas du vieux ports, avec quelques tables qui offrent une belle vue sur les environs.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent. We loved
Food was excellent. We loved the private room, specially because we had children with us.
Very nice and friendly service. We will go back, for sure!

C'était ma 1 ière visite Je voulais goûter à cette cuisine d'Argentine Cela aurait pu être plus relevé mais dans l'ensemble c'était très bien. Le gérant a été particulièrement avenant très agréable il voulait vraiment satisfaire la clientèle

Having supper sitting side by side on a rocking little bench with some pillows...really nice experience...Great food and ambiance...
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great! Service
The food was great! Service was OK...mostly because it took a long time before anybody came to see us to offer us drinks, and the appetizers subsequently arrived before our bottle of wine.
Overall it was a great dinner, and we would definitely go back!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
2nd visit ... much better !
This was my 2nd visit in a week at L'Atelier d'Argentine, this time only because we wanted to take advantage of their nice patio to enjoy one the the last summer day in Montreal. And nice surprise, everything was much better this time around ! Professional service, good food, overall, very satisfied.

Amateurs de viandes...accourez
Excellente bouffe, grande qualité de viande et superbe resto. Service sans faille !
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Une superbe soirée.
Le 5@8 est tout simplement génial. La qualité des cocktails m'a impressionnée.
De l'entrée au désert la nourriture était excellente. Un must!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, charming place
We were a group of 4 people dining so we had the pleasure of sharing some appetizers and everything we tried was delicious.
3 of us had beef as a main meal and one had the chilean seabass. The fish was cooked to perfection so was the meat. We were all very pleased by our plates and the side dishes we chose which were quite varied.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very pleasant diner
We have been delighted by the charms of this restaurant, the decor, the service but on top, the food! It was our 1st time for diner and we didn't regret the choice, we enjoyed the ambiance, the people and of course the gastronomic experience. It brings a young touch to the old Montreal.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the atmosphere and decor!
I liked the decor of the glass and its atmosphere. Very chic, but you can dress casually too. Went for dinner. Food was good, but the service was pretty slow. Waited an hour for our main meal after our drinks and starter. Other than that, I would go back.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great night in Argentina
From start to finish it was a great experience. The service was attentive and with a smile
And the food was delicious.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went there to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were offered the private room downstairs. The room decor was fabulous. The service excellent. The food was very delicious. We all had a great evening and will highly recommend this restaurant.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Group of 7 on a Wednesday night
The place was quite, most probably because it was a Wednesday night. The atmosphere and the vibe of the place is very well engineered. The decor is unique and cozy with a touch of elegance. The food was really good and was enjoyed by all of us. Although we didn't have wine on this specific occasion, the wine list seemed nice. The service was warm, welcoming, and fast.
Definitely suggest this place for an above average night out with friends, family, or a date.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing decor and great food
This restaurant is a perfect combination of great food in really nice modern decor. When we went, the service was also first class. The food is excellent but more choices would be appreciated as we found we liked more their special dishes than what they describe as their specialty, which are grilled meats.
A really great place to go whether as a group, a family or for a romantic evening. Great selection of South American and Spanish wines, too.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food and servive.
Very good food and servive. Beautiful big windows and view on the Old Port!

Belle ambiance personnel chaleureux excellents drinks! Et très agréable d'entendre le dj.jouer.du tam tam sur de là musique d'aujourd'hui. Endroit a recommander. J'y suis retournée pour les brunch et c'était excellent.et là serveuse était fort sympathique. Petite bémol, c est très sombre dans le lounge durant le 5à8 mais c est magnifiquement éclairé le jour!!!
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great happy hour, food OK.
The happy hour drinks are well worth it, they do drinks very well with a nice twist. The unexpected finger food asparagus wrapped with sirloin steaks was very thoughtful. Not sure if all guests are comped everyday like this but it was very good.
Having been to other argentinian restaurants, I wasn't that really impressed with the quality of the food although it was still good. Choices are plenty but I've seen meat cooked better and much more tender elsewhere.
Overall, good restaurant and good service.

The best Bavette I've ever tasted
Went there for the Taste MTL event. The beef Bavette was incredibly good! Honestly the best I've tasted. Their mojito was also very tasty. Overall presentation of the plates were very nice.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, very good food
Very enjoyable evening. Reasonable table d 'hote menu with very good wines. Very attentive service. Come early and enjoy the bar first!
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is delicious, service is good and prices are reasonnable for the quality. One of my favourite spot in Montréal Old Port.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Découvert ce bel endroit dans le cadre de Montreal à table...le menu proposé interessant..abordable..
Magret de canard et bavette de boeuf en plats principal...excellent..par contre assiette trop petite ( surtout les pièces de viande)
Excellent service...rapide..et avec le sourire..bravo !
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
My boyfriend and I were seated at a window seat in a secluded corner, which was perfect for our birthday dinner. We had the ceviche and the mini empanadas, both were very flavourful and a perfect size. We both had steaks and we got the carrots and fries on the side - steaks were grilled perfectly and had that delicious charred taste. Chimichurri on the side was a bit salty, but the other salsa that was provided was perfect. We had the duo of ice cream for dessert and one of them was creamy and delicious while the other was practically an almond paste. All in all, a great meal with a perfect atmosphere.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
You must recommend to your friends!
Excellent Food, Nice decoration, service is excellent. However, very noicy when there is a lot people at the bar.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is as good as it gets!
When on a date and started off at the bar with a fantastic recommendation of a great Argentinian Malbec. Had our coats checked and the seated in the amazing dinning area. The Cuisine, ambiance, service and view of the old port was implacable to say the least. A true gem of a restaurant that is young and vibrant and one that will forever we special! Merci and thank you for the amazing dinning experience!
As to the date: +++ for brownie points in the bag!:)
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We very much enjoyed this restaurant. The food was great, and the service was impeccable. We had to wait a few minutes for our table to be cleared. The manager brought us a glass of prosecco for our wait. The waiter explained the menu and helped us pick our wine. It was a real pleasure!!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect date night
My fiance and I found out about this restaurant while browsing listings for the Taste of Montreal. We thought we would check it out and were absolutely pleased. Our meal was delicious. And the ambiance of the restaurant was perfect.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner and Brunch
We have enjoyed it very much. It is not exactly like back in Argentina - but they manage to bring out the essential: we are known for our prime grade meat. (for the complainer below which undoubtly has never set foot in Argentina) They have a vast selection of wines (bottles starting at 40$ up to 100+$) and you also have a good choice for glasses. We went for dinner to celebrate our anniverssary and they tended to us very well. We noticed they serve brunch - so we went back last weekend. They have all you can drink Mimosas. And a variety of meals for breakfast lovers and lunch lovers. All their meats are high quality, desserts housemade and their entrees are just as delicious and fresh. I must mention: they have a "bar/lounge" section :)
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
A bit slow but awesome food
Place was awesome, the food took a while to arrive, but it was so good that we quickly forgot about the delay.
Desserts are also awesome! I think this place is a must! if you are in montreal
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place, awesome food
Great place, awesome food and varied wine list. On a Saturday at 9 p.m. I was expecting a somewhat more quiet/romantic ambiance, but despite the noise level we enjoyed the evening. We'll return.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
With several cuts of beef to choose from and cooked in the Argentinian style, steak lovers will be well served at this restaurant. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. On a Tuesday night the restaurant was fairly quiet, but the lighting and overall ambiance are nice. The only downside was the music which felt a little too "themed" whether it was Argentinian specific or just generic latin American music. Something more contemporary would have been more in keeping with the style of the restaurant. Overall a very good experience.
