The noise level was a little too loud when the saxaphonist was playing. My wife is hearing impaired and this did not help. Other than that we enjoy this restaurant.

Food and service was very excellent. The only bad thing I can say is the wait to be seated. Waited over 30 minutes even though I had a reservation.

Ordered a steak for “2” (were told that is was 30oz) @ Medium Rare. First steak couldn’t have been more than 18oz and was completely well done. Sent back. Second steak was about the same size and was still medium well and not anything close to what was ordered. Will not be returning. Quality doesn’t justify the steep price

This place is a gem! The food was amazing from start to finish, everything was well portioned and fresh and delicious. The lunch menu specials were a great deal and this is the perfect spot to have a sophisticated meal with the special someone.

This is my second visit to Patagonia, both times I have been pleased with my entree choice, but the service has been exceptional both times, this last time the bottle of wine we selected was out of stock. The waiter recommended another bottle at approximately the same price and it was excellent. I highly recommend this place albeit a little expensive

nice restaurant in a simple strip center
nice service
but very expensive for the quality. I tried the most expensive item on the menu wanting and expecting to be wowed. I wasn't. 68$ for a conventional braised lamb shank with mash potatoes, green beans, and spinach is, in my opinion, excessive. The executive lunch menu does not offer anything Argentinean of note. My guest ordered the...salmon! he enjoyed it but...salmon? All non executive lunch choices of interest were also expensive. in my opinion compared to more high-end steakhouse restaurants...

The quality of the food and service were on point. It was a little pricey for a neighborhood restaurant but top shelf just the same.

The holiday decorations we're very tastefully done.

Have been there for dinner on numerous occasions. The food is always great and portions are generous. The wine list is extensive. Saturday evenings usually includes calm live music. There’s a screen behind the bar that runs through some beautiful Argentine landscapes. Very friendly and efficient staff.

Had the braised (beef?) ribs...gotta say they were horrible. Did not taste like beef at all...very heavy "fat" taste...and not in a good way. The porcini raviolis on the other hand were fabulous!! Best I have ever eaten. May have been an off night, they appeared to be preparing for a couple large parties...

Made reservations for 7 pm on a Saturday night and when we walked the place was nearly empty. Probably should have a red flag, but I was hyped based on the reviews I saw. My wife and I had the mixed grill, a plate of mixed grilled meats. The sausages had a unique flavor that we not found of. The short ribs were charred on the outside and tough and sinewy. The char gave the meat a bitter taste. The "fajita" skirt had a unique flavor that we just weren't feeling. One of the plates was ravioli and my daughter was wowed or blown away. The last plate was a filet mignon that was ordered medium and came out medium rare and sent it back to the kitchen. After making the correction the filet mignon was good. If I go back I would be because the steaks listed on the menu are at a better than fair price. I like to try them before totaling writing this restaurant off.

We have eaten here many times before. The restaurant is a good place to meet and be able to have a conversation. The food is close to what you can get in Buenos Aires. The staff is very attentive. Some food items are done very well and others not so much. The Beef Filet (Lomo) is excellent as well as the salads. This time I ordered the long bone ribs which were disappointing, tough and dry. We will be back again and order what they are good at which includes the empanadas.

Came here for wife’s bday. The empanadas were pretty good, normal, but the meat platter was outstanding. We substituted more sausages for sweet breads which we felt was a solid move. The steak and short ribs were really really good and the wine picked by the waiter was great. Definitely worth a try and I’m sure we’ll be back at some point. Wish the location was better.

We had never heard of this restaurant and were looking for some place new in the Memorial City/Town & Country area and I googled the area zip code and found Patagonia Grill and thought we'd try it to meet our friends. We all 4 very pleased and impressed and now this is our new favorite restaurant. Such nice and friendly staff. Our only issue would be that sometimes the live music was a it loud for us to converse with each other but LOVE, LOVE the live music. There are few, if any, restaurants that provide live music and we were so pleased that you have it and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait to come back. Thanks for making our first visit so nice. Food was great, wait staff was friendly and accommodating, and music was wonderful. Thanks to all of you. Tried uploading our photo and it wouldn't take it. Sorry.

Great Aregentinian food in unremarkable location. Inside the decor transports you to a different world. You forget your in a shopette near a Home Depot on I-10. Food is quite good but pricey with an extensive wine list. An Aregentinian star.

Food was just okay. The value for the HRW was not there. Our party was still hungry after we finished our meal, but the regular menu was very expensive.

Background music was pleasant but we were on the other side of the restaurant. I am not so sure it would be pleasant if you were seated by the music.

Our waiter was good until it got crowded and then he was ok.

Overall review is ok, food nothing special and pricey.

Very good, attentive service - Marzio was knowledgeable and interesting. Great selection on the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu. The red snapper was very nice - not dry, and lightly seasoned. My wife's skirt steak was cooked perfectly and full of flavor. This is a smaller place, and we liked that as it seemed more personal, but there was a bit of background noise. The live music (saxophone with auto accompaniment) was very nice - good oldies selections and the volume was just right. The Argentinian sausage was yummy, as were the beef empanadas.

I brought my wife and some good friends there on Saturday night, and we all enjoyed our meals. Our waiter pointed out some great wines by the glass and recommended great entree’s. We all decided that we would want to come back.

Discovered this gem when planning a hrw dinner with a friend and we wanted a half-way meeting place. It was very good, quite unexpected. Crab cakes were full of crab meat, not lots of fillers. Meat was tender and cooked perfect. And they have great cuts of meet (like entrana), and delicious desserts. I’d drive back out here. And our server was funny, helpful, kind, and overall terrific.

I made a reservation at 7:45pm for 5 people. When my friends and I arrived at the restaurant, we still had to wait another 45min before we were seated. Thankfully our waiter was very attentive and pleasant. We ordered our food and the food came out pretty quickly. I went here for HRW and ordered the sausage with chimichurri sauce, Argentinian steak, and crepes for dessert. Food was great but not worth the 45min wait.
