Best grilled meat in town!!! Awesome service, friendly staff and delightful atmosphere. Excellent wine selection.
Casual vibe, old school , very authentic and delicious food
Our meal started “good” and then moved to “very good” and ended after our meal and experience as “Excellent”. Thank you Max for your recommendations!
We will most definitely be back!
It was my birthday dinner. I was expecting an extravagant birthday dessert because at places like Nobu they have gone all out but I nearly thought they forgot it but brought out 1 scoop of ice cream with a candle. The patio was nice but the plexiglass was a little much. We had to listen to two people there alone flirting across multiple tables. It just wasn’t very romantic or made it feel like a special day.
Staff was extremely friend and all safety measures were taken. The food was absolutely delicious. The blood sausage and chorizo were delicious appetizers and we ordered the 40oz ribeye medium rare which came out exactly that. The crust was beautiful and it went extremely well with delicious sides (garlic fries and pepper corn reduction mushrooms). Definitely recommended!
A must-visit for any steak lover. Phenomenal food and service.
Amazing place! Everything on point!
One of the best spots I’ve been to in LA. Every bite was great. Cap steak FTW!
great time. good food. definitely returning back again soon.
Lovely! Gerard and Max treated us very well. The dinner was excellent as well as the paired wines. Also, loved the live music.
True, it's a tough time to review a restaurant based on what's going on, but they did everything they could to make this a normal experience. Gave us a great table, service was excellent, food cooked perfectly.
Best steakhouse in LA with a fantastic wine list. Service is unmatched. Everyone should skip the “usual”, bland steakhouses and pay a visit to Carlito’s.
Patio experience: Good food for average dinner out, not ideal for celebration. Food and service were average.
Hands down the BEST place for a romantic or birthday or family or whatever dinner! The food is spectacular: the bone in rib eye for two hit the ball out of the park! The Burrata said was amazing and you must not miss their Gnocchi! Max, the sommelier, is a gem and one of the central reasons we love Carlitos Gardel!
Fantastic start to finish!
THIS PLACE IS OUTSTANDING. SERVICE IMPECCABLE, FOOD WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!! MUST TRY THIS PLACE!!!
The service, the setting, the steaks: All Sublime!
The steaks were out of this world! The service was flawless inside the restaurant. Outside was cold so we moved inside. We ordered the rib eye cap and the filet, and both were flavorful, juicy and tender. They were the best steaks we’ve ever had. I was thankful they accommodated my food allergies graciously.
Great place delicious food and amazing service!!!

Fantastic Food! Unbelievable!! Outside dining is 1st class!
Amazing food and service. An exceptional evening.
From the empanadas to the morcilla, everything was fantastic. If you're looking for authentic Argentinian cuisine, this is your place.
The food is simply amazing, Girair provides great advice and his mother’s desserts complete the most gorgeous experience in restaurants in LA.
Wonderful dining experience, definitely recommend. The chimichurri was outstanding and the service was exceptional.
The ambiance was great and we felt very safe dining outdoors with plexiglass between the tables. The food was outstanding as was the service. I cannot recommend this restauarnt highly enough for any carnivore as the steaks (Ribeye and New York) were among the best I've ever tasted. Excellent wine list and great wine recommendations.
Food was great, although it would have been nice to know that we were going to be charged for the birthday dessert and the water.
Great food and service. Server was really nice. Just a bit cold by the side but after some wine it warmed up
Service host was not
Incredible experience from front to back. Wow. 10 stars
Best place. Super under rated.
Seating was in an outdoor setting- which was cold. Couldn’t take my coat off.
Food was ok, but not amazing, for this price point
The food was amazing! From the stuffed portabella mushroom to the steak and the tres leche dessert! Will come back.
Excellent customer service and the food was amazing. Perfectly cooked and flavor was perfect. The host an server went above and beyond our expectations. Will definitely recommend this place. We will be back.
One of LAs best. Food is always perfect and the service is friendly and impeccable. I've been coming to Carlitos for over 20 years. Never disappoints.
Great “tapa de ojo” cut of meat. Great service thanks to Gerardo’s attention and love. We will be back.
Based on many experienced around the country and world, this is the best Argentine restaurant outside of Argentina. We get to eat here every couple of years -- always seems to get better and wine list more amazing!
