Once again amazing food. Best steak in Los Angeles. Great service, love the wine.
Thanks for everything.
The food is was amazing. We had the ribeye and the cap and both were cook perfectly. The service is 2nd to none and they even remembered it was our anniversary. Great place.
too xpensive. the portions were too large. it would be better to have normal porrtions and a better price
Thank you Max!
The food. . . the service. . . the wine. . . exceptional as always.
Carlitos is one our favorite steakhouses in LA. It's been a few years since we've been back, but I was pleasantly reminded as to how good their food is. Especially the dessert! The mascarpone tart! I would go back for this dessert alone.
Everything else was equally delicious - mashed potatoes, gnocchi special, super fresh warm bread. The only thing that was a bit disturbing was the amount of blood coming out of the steaks, which made me think it wasn't properly rested before serving? Irregardless, it was still good and perfectly cooked medium. It even tasted good as leftovers the next day.
It's a super cozy, casual place with great good and amazing service.
Absolutely everything was phenomenal!! I am so impressed by this restaurant. Puts all other restaurants to shame in Los Angeles. What an amazing experience!!
Service is impeccable. So much so it brings the great food out of focus. We were slightly disappointed with the toughness of our meet but really no complaints.
Go to eat here. Be mindful that the noise level is high so intimate conversation is difficult.
This place is exceptional
This was the first time my husband and I went to Carlitos and it was amazing. My husband and I were very satisfied and pleased. The food was so delicious. A list of food that we ate that was so delicious are Endivia con Camarones salad, Empanada Argentina both spinach and beef, Gambas al Ajillo, Filet Mignon, also one of the nights specials. Also with the grand finale postre Gardel and Marscapone Cheese tart. I would recommend this place for nice date night or just to go with a group of friends. The service was great and the ambiance was really nice. Love love love
Amazing lunch of tender steak and more
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
