One of my all time favorite restaurants. We always leave happy. Absolutely love how personable the owner and his staff are. A must try !
Food was horrible 😫. Over priced and taste was bad
The service, food, and drinks are exquisite! This is a family business and they make you feel like family when dining. The attention to detail is superb and you will thoroughly enjoy your meal. During covid they built the cutest patio for diners and I enjoy it more than being indoors. I have been a repeat customer since LA restaurants opened back up in 2020 and every time I'm amazed.
Love Carlitos. Been coming for over 15 years and it never disappoints. Always consistently amazing.
Hands down my most favorite restaurant! What they have created in their patio area is fabulous... make sure you consult Max about the most exquisite wine to pair with your meat or pasta. Pay special attention to the specials, they are SPECIAL!
Wonderful dinner. Food is spectacular. The new outdoor patio is the best I have seen. The service is friendly and fast...
No question, Carlitos is our favorite restaurant in LA. The food, the service, the ambiance, the family...all superb! Highly recommended.
The food and service were both excellent, but $12 for a 750ml bottle of San Pellegrino seemed excessive.
The food and the service was very good . If I knew how the outdoors is I would book indoors. The outdoors area feels boxed in.
Beautiful amazing restaurant! Better than all the steakhouses in BH!
The ambiance was great along with the staff and customer service. Above all the meal was amazing. Some of the best steak I’ve ever had. Will definitely return.
Great experience. Service was very friendly & personable. They were attentive & knowledgeable about the items on the menu & the wine list. Of the dishes I had I liked the Shrimp appetizer (shrimp was large & succulent), and the Rib Cap were the best. The ambiance is a warm & cozy inviting area. Wood paneling to an outside area. Great date spot or having a quiet conversation. Overall, a lovely evening.
We have been coming to this wonderful, family owned and operated restaurant for a few decades now and last night was our first time back since things started to get back to normal.
The wonderful News is other than adding a charming back room, nothing has changed. Dinner was fabulous, the service and hospitality could not have been any better and we just had a fantastic time, all the way around.
This is the kind of place that you want to succeed.
Go out and dine here. You’ll be so glad you did.
Courteous & prompt! Went early before they got busy.
Our favorite stake house ever! Excellent as always!!!
The quality of the food and the service was absolutely outstanding; excellent wine list. This place is a gem....the beef tongue and sweetbreads are a must!
I’m going to this restaurant since it reopened during the pandemic. Its food is outstanding, service impeccable, and ambience welcoming.
Wow wow wow! The service from beginning to end was amazing. I asked them to put a candle in the empanadas for my boyfriends birthday, and they did this no issue! The waiter recommended the 2 best steaks and we got both and they were unbelievable, the flavour was incredible and they were cooked to perfection. I highly recommend!!
Fantastic service, delicious food, and with the Chef running the whole show both in the kitchen and on the floor. Top-tier!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Excellent atmosphere. Cant wait to go back.
Awesome service with awesome Food. All their cuts are great!
Overall great experience! Food was perfect!
Every dining experience is special at this restaurant. Superb food. Extraordinary service! You must go!
Friday night family dinner - Fabulous time great food !
Max and Gerard have done an outstanding job of recreating an excellent atmosphere during the pandemic, all the while maintains terrific service and a wonderful meat-centric menu.
Best experience ever. Staff is so friendly and the food is great
This place was great, all around I could not have asked for anything else. The food was amazing, the people were friendly and quick to provide service, and the atmosphere was perfect. I would recommend this place for a couples date, or even a small group celebration.
Every dinner is special at this wonderful restaurant. The food and service are impeccable and worth celebrating.
They were amazing!!!! Best steak house in LA! People need to wake up and taste real steak with a great experience and warm inviting hosts and waiters. The Lady of the House is amazingly sweet!
We love visiting Carlitos it’s a family favorite, their food is phenomenal and I have to say better than Mastros!
Carlitos is always great!
Amazing steaks, sides and wines. Fantastic service, highly knowledgeable proprietor.
Our first time there, we loved it! The food was excellent, the service was warm and inviting. It was my husbands birthday, he loves steak....and was not disappointed! We’ll definitely be back. I loved the cozy, comfortable atmosphere.
A long time favorite and was stunned to receive a bill for $206 one appetizer each I flank steak a rib steak and french fries then a tip?
food was AMAZING. i think we said 'wow' with every bite. will be back!
Went for an anniversary dinner with my partner. Very good service, our server was really attentive and didn’t hesitate to answer any questions we had. I wish I got his name! I got the 10 oz. New York sirloin, medium rare, and it was the best steak I’ve ever had. Very juicy and tender. My partner got the 16 oz. skirt steak, medium rare as well, and he thought it was very good also. This might be odd, but their water was the best water I’ve had, I couldn’t stop drinking it! Because we were here for our anniversary, they offered us a free dessert (vanilla ice cream topped with dulce de leche) on the house. Loved this restaurant and the experience!
Always a great experience dining at Carlito’s. Thank you Gerald for making our dinner so special once again. Hope to see you soon.
Always the same high quality food and service. Highly recommend it. Very quaint homey place.
If you haven’t been there you are missing a lot. Great ambiance, delicious food, exceptional service and on top of that never seen before dessert menu ❤️
Totally worth the money, always a great time when we go. Will definitely be going back again, best steak I’ve had, great in-house wine selection along with international beers.
