Carlitos Gardel Argentine Steakhouse

Very nice atmosphere, bus boy was very nice and extremely helpful.
Carlitos Gardel is the best steakhouse I have eaten at. The food is superb. In addition to the meats which are cooked to perfection, our fennel salad was wonderful and the gnocchi, my wife's favorite dish, perfectly prepared . Likewise, the sides of mashed potatoes, mushrooms and above all the garlic infused French fries, and dessert were delectable. Once inside, the ambiance is that of a restaurant in Buenos Aires and you can forget reality for a while. The service is impeccable and the staff and owners the nicest people, friendly and always concerned about enhancing your experience. The wine list is sublime. It is expensive but not more than any other first class restaurant and very much worth the experience.
Top notch service and wonderful food. This family run restaurant has it all. We were so impressed with everything!
A very classy nice restaurant. A warm welcoming, followed by an excellent service, with a lot of attention to details on order to please you. If you have the opportunity to go eat there, do not hesitate!
Food was extraordinary!
Service great but food for the price was not so excellent as I thought it going to be.
Great steak and wine dinner with an even better staff. The lamb chops were to die for.
Outstanding food and service.
It was an awesome experience, the taste of food was just excellent, I will bring friends and Family
If you miss old school Nyc Little Italy, then this is the place for you! The steak was fantastic. It’s a small, intimate environment and great place to catch up with friends or nice date night. So glad we went, everyone was very friendly...our waiter was a little too proactive on checking in on us, but that’s better then him forgetting about us. We’re really glad we tried it.
The best time I’ve had for a long time in a restaurant very professional great food expensive but I don’t do it every day loved it
The food was delicious and the service was excellent! I’ll definitely be back.
Que delicia de postres!!!!!! Todo estuvo muy rico.
Excellent food and service. It was an accident that we ate at this restaurant and what a happy accident it was. The service felt personal, like we were the only customers there and the steaks were some of the best I’ve ever had.
We went for my husband’s birthday - it was absolutely perfect. The atmosphere is incredibly romantic, service right on point, and the food is insanely good.
The perfect date night! Alex and Fabio took great care of us and even had the pleasure of meeting the owner afterwards. Food was OUTSTANDING!! Will be back soon
Strongly recommend Carlito’s Gardel! Great wine selection, incredible ambiance, amazing food! Absolute must try
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
