    Amazing steak! The chimichurri is some of the best we’ve ever had. I loved the potato pumpkin purée. It’s expensive, but the service was outstanding. Will definitely visit again on a special occasion.

    Staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable of specials/food/wine, on top of re-fills for water/wine/anything we may have needed. Food was phenomenal. Shared a 40oz bone-in ribeye with my dad who was visiting from out of town. The sommelier offered a great pairing of wine with our food. Overall, great experience for a nice outing! Highly recommend.

    L'entrée du restaurant côté terrasse se fait dans une arrière rue très glauque et insalubre la nuit . Nous avions réservé à 20h45, dès notre arrivée le serveur nous mettait constamment la pression car la cuisine devait fermer .. il venait nous le rappeler toutes les 5 minutes jusqu'à ce que nous choisissions , et nous a proposé les desserts alors que nous venions à peine de recevoir nos plats. La nourriture était bonne mais pas extraordinaire, les viandes étaient servies sans accompagnement malgré le prix très élevé des plats. Accompagnements payants. Le cadre était sympathique malgré tout. Ce restaurants ne vaut pas son prix , nous ne recommandons pas . 380$ pour 3... Avec un verre de vin ...

    Restaurant is well decorated and very quiet. But it was very hot inside and many insects flying around. The bread and steak was delicious. The Chimichurri sauce was pretty good. We also ordered the chocolate cake with banana ice cream. But it was too sweet and the cake was very hard even it was served hot. I would not recommend ordering the cake. Please note they don’t have tap water and is charging $10 per bottle.

    Carlitos Gardel Steakhouse has been one of the best experiences I've had in both service and food quality. Indoor dining is classic. There's never wrong with classic. The outdoor patio has a more higher end casual vibe. I'd definitely recommend company gatherings, family gatherings, and or to date at this dining. Oh, food is exquisite.

    We had an amazing dinner for my husbands birthday. My husband loves a food rib eye and bread pudding so this was the perfect place to treat him! What we loved most about this place is the attention and hospitality. The owner himself was our server and took amazing care of us. Unique experience, will go back to try other menu items.

    Carlitos was absolutely amazing. The restaurant is small and cozy which makes it feel like a more intimate setting. The staff were extremely friendly, and perfectly toed the line between being around to ask if we needed anything and giving us space. But the best part about Carlitos was the food. The Caesar salad and empanadas were an excellent appetizer. And the steak was absolutely divine. It was perfectly cooked for all in my dinner party and melted in your mouth. The salt on the side and presentation on wood cutting boards was an excellent touch. And the bread pudding for dessert was phenomenal.

    This was our first time dining here with colleagues and we had a good time. Food: was amazing honestly. It was was definitely worth the money paid. Service: not amazing. Our waiter, which I don’t know his name because he never gave it to us, was cold. We weren’t done ordering our appetizers and he just walked away really quickly. Mind you, this was at 6:30, we were the second table to arrive at the patio so there shouldn’t be a reason to rush away. The chef did walk around the tables and he did come to ask us how our food was and thanked us for coming in, and I did like that. The ambience was really nice as we chose to sit on the patio but it did start to get a little cold and the 2 heaters they had above were not enough to reach our table. So maybe grab a sweater! Overall, I would go again to this place because the food was up there and that’s what matters to me really.

    The discomfort commenced from the moment we walked in. It was undeniably obvious we were assumed by staff that we should not be there, consequently we made the decision to not order wine or a meal. We ordered an appetizer and removed ourselves from the restaurant for air we could breath. Imagine not being stared down by patrons but by the service staff at what is referenced as a popular and highly rated restaurant- dissatisfied, disappointing.
