VERY GOOD！とっても美味しく頂きました。次回LAに行った時もいきます！ステーキ は一番上の赤身がおすすめです。
Great food and amazing wine list... what else can you say
Best steak in LA! Expensive but worth every penny!
Great food and service. Completely enjoyed a relaxing dinner.
Had a great meal out with the Guys. Brought my wife to enjoy the restaurant and they didn’t disappoint.
Hands down the BEST steak and and everything else place! Max is so knowldgable about the wines . You cannot go wrong. The meat is beyond perfection. The gnocchi is to die for and the mixed green salad is phenomenal-who knew that a green salad could be that good! Tuly a wonderful dinner!
Just the best steak in LA. A fantastic dining experience.
The food was really good. Our server was very stiff. However, the quality of the dishes was amazing.
Carlitos Gardel NEVER disappoints! Whether you kick-off the New Year with their scrumptious pre-fixe menu paired with a great wine picked by Max or you decide to go for a great dinner (business or with friends), this place is a rare jewel among a sea of restaurants and by far the BEST Argentinian restaurant in Los Angeles.
We celebrated our grandma’s 70th birthday here with the family-and this restaurant always makes it extra special! She absolutely loved the warmth, the service, the instrumental music that took her back to her happiest memories with a cozy-home like ambiance. She loved every flavor of each dish and she was so happy with the best experience it left her with! Carlitos Gardel never disappoints the expectations of a great dinner with the greatest company and good energy that you are constantly surrounded with! My husband and I have been here several times and we enjoy returning back especially with friends and family who haven’t been to Carlitos Gardel. Make sure to make reservations in advance because it always has a full-house.
Reserve y me asignaron la mesa en la hora solicitada, buena oferta de vinos, la carne es extraordinaria. Todo el personal habla español, lo que facilita la experiencia. El servicio brindado de los meseros y gente al mando es sobresaliente
Was an excellent experience the steak where a bit generous in size . They should have told us the one plate is enough for 2 .
In the middle of a busy street lies this gem of a restaurant. From the moment you walk you in you are greeted as if you were entering a familial home. Live music plays in the background and the smells of meat fill your nostrils and make your mouth salivate with anticipation. The tables are clean and watching the staff do their thing is mesmerizing as they move around like a miniature merry go-round. The food is amazing and the selection and service is top notch. Impress your date, your wife, your family or your co-workers in a setting that's fit for king and queen.
The tuna tartare was stunning.The salted caramel ice cream was served with pecans, whipped cream and pepper. The combination was actually very flavourful and balanced. Definitely recommend it.
We had a good time!
Wanna come back with friends
The sommelier recommended an outstanding wine and helped us pair our meal with the wine. Everything was perfect.
Food is great and so is the service
Muy buena atención lugar impecable, un ambiente acogedor, la comida excelente!!
The mushroom raviolis were fantastic. We split them as an appetizer. The rack of lamb and creamed spinach were both delicious. Great restaurant, but can get pricey.
Everything was delicious from the wine to the entree.
Carlitos Gardel is my longtime favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. The owners will make certain that every aspect of your meal is perfect.
It’s great. Amazing food and fantastic service. Cute, cozy atmosphere. Definitely recommend.
Wonderful hospitality, food and wine
one of the best dining experiences in the city. Great food, music and service.
Amazing experience! Our party of four was left raving about each of our individual meals.
The meal was good but the streak special was a little fatty and we had sticker shock when we got the bill and realized it was $140. The server hardly engaged with us throughout the night and then walked away after we asked a question about the bill. The hand written bill was illegible; it was almost like they purposely wanted to hide the amount of the special. Then the manager came up and said “what’s wrong guys?” and proceeded to act like a used car salesman as he tried to sell us on how our steak was such a good value. Then he tried to comp the dessert (a scoop of ice cream) which the server already didn’t charge us for because we were celebrating a birthday. He did ultimately knock $20 off the price but the night had already ended on a sour note. Won’t be going back to this place. Oh, and I forgot to mention that the restaurant had a funny smell that we both noticed right when we walked in. And it wasn’t the fishy nature of the manger that we also sensed right away upon his greeting. We should have followed our instincts and left before it was too late.
Food is amazing. Fantastic wine list. Service is great. No attitude, just great food, fantastic people and always great low key, elegant ambience
Always a fun evening. Authentic Argentine food, quality ingredients, cooked perfectly.
Steak was fantastic and service was awesome
I'll visit next time again!
food and service were terrific! A really enjoyable meal!
Great meat. Skirt steak was incredible. Garlic fries are special. Nice ambience and good service.
Amazing Entraña and Pollo Romanoff! Max made our night fantastic! Alex brought excellent wines. The food, service, ambiance were all top notch and just perfect.
Love this place so much!
Very good Argentinian food, super friendly staff, the owner himself welcomed us upon arrival.
My boys asked for milanesa, that was very good (although a little on the small side), with mashed potatoes. I had the gnocchi that were delicious and also a bug portion.
For desert we had two different cakes, both perfect!
The place is decorated with Tango motives, and also played Tango music.
We enjoyed our meal very much!
Had an incredible meal here on Saturday night. The entrana steak was one of the best steaks of my life. I would go back here just to eat that again and again. Everything was delicious!
mejor restaurante argentino en LA - best argentine restaurant in LA
The dishes we ordered varied from okay to good. The presentation was not impressive. The french fries, however, were spectacular -- rather ironically. Who would expect an Argentine restaurant to get highest marks for fries. The service was excellent. The ambiance nothing to write home about, but pleasant and the noise level was very good.
I loved the service everyone was very attentive and the food was delicious!
Love this restaurant :)
Not as special as it used to be. Service indifferent at best. Pushy with certain wines, no insights
