Great food and great service. You wouldn’t expect a place in a strip center to be this good. Kinda a hidden gem.

This place is way overpriced for the medium to average food quality they serve. No wonder why it had 3 tables occupied on Friday night. First and last time.

I'm sorry I haven't been here before, but it will definitely not be my last. Love this place. I'm already telling people about it and plan to go back again this week. Can't wait.

We’ve had great experiences in the past at this place but something must have changed as this was not the case tonight. Service was mediocre and our food was less than mediocre and incredibly overpriced! We will not be returning.

The steaks were seasoned to perfection but both mine and my husband’s were over cooked. The waiter was very nice and attentive but when we told him about the steaks he just said sorry, hope you will give us another chance and come back.

The restaurant is lovely once inside as it is located in a strip center. The food I ordered was fine but the others in my group was not so. One didn't receive the correct order, the other received a higher priced dish that appeared less in value due to the size of the food. Timing of the staff to notice issue and resolve took longer than expected.

Great food, South American vibe. Typically a restaurant I will go to for lunch with clients, but their lunch menu is a little pricey. Very similar to dinner menu

I had no expectations, positive or negative when we booked our reservation. To sum up our experience, everyone was very happy with the food, but the service was lackluster at best! it took forever to order, we were never offered any bread, if they even had it, they did not have either of the first two wines I ordered or the bourbon I ordered for a cocktail. Our waiter seemed confused and when the food did arrive, he hadn't a clue as to who ordered what! he and his assistants actually stood and called out the food to see who would respond!!
But I am adventurous, because the food was so good, I would return once, only to see if this was an off night or a new waiter. If the same service was provided, we would never return.

Delicious food, great service! Very expensive but worth treating yourself to a night out. My husband had the filet this time..it was good but the presentation was missing. Just a piece of meat on a plate, wouldnt hurt to add some grilled veggies or potatoes..mashed potatoe swirl? For the high prices a more artistic presentation please

My girlfriend and I came here as a result of HRW (wanting to try places that we have never tried before). Everything started off well and the staff seemed nice and we were seated promptly.

We ended up ordering the:
Mango Ceviche and the Crab Cake,
New York Steak and Ribeye
Dulce de leche crepe and an alfajor.

The biggest reason for my one star rating is the following: as my girlfriend was eating the Crab cake, she ended up finding a big piece of crab shell! If one of us had accidentally eaten that, it could have easily scratched our throats. This is not what I expect from a fine dining restaurant. The server took it away and I was expecting a manager to come talk to us and at the very least apologize to us.

He comes back and he has the audacity to actually say "at least you know it's fresh now!" That completely ruined my night and when I told him how serious it was, he just kept downplaying it.

The steaks were cooked decently (medium rare) but desperately needed seasoning.
The desserts were okay, but the maraschino cherries had no place on that plate.

Overall: A big piece of crab shell in the crab cake is NOT acceptable from a fine dining establishment. A big piece of crab shell being downplayed is NOT acceptable. I will never recommend this place and I suggest you stay clear of it as well.

Wine is way overpriced. No options below $52. Which wouldn’t be so bad of the $50+ options were worth it

We had 5 in our party. Once seated, we were served water and the waiter never returned to take drink or food orders. We were seated 30 minutes when I finally had to hail down a random waiter to place our drink & food order.

It will be a long time before I take clients or colleagues to Patagonia, which is unfortunate since the restaurant is close to my office.

The food was amazing. I took my team to celebrate the completion of a big project. They were all very happy with the service and the amazing flavor of everything we ate. The only disappointment was that the crepe did not come with ice cream :) but the overall experience was fantastic! Can't wait to visit La Patagonia again!!

Surprising good restaurant in a shopping strip center. You can taste the attention and efforts they put into the food. All food seems to be made in the kitchen and not from commercial kitchen unlike some of the fancy restaurants in the Galleria area. Hate eating Costo/Sysco food in restaurants. LOL

I really like this restaurant. Have recently had lunch here twice with a group that meets different places. Tasty food and the 4 course executive lunch is a great value. And it is not loud. You can easily have table conversations.

I don’t usually leave bad reviews, but I cannot let this one go. We had the platter and it was the most overpriced meat I’ve had. Beef was over cooked, salads were poor. Wine wasn’t bad and the sausage was decent.

I recommend that you try the duck. It was cooked perfectly and it was so tender. The sauce was buttery and flavorful.

My friend loved his short ribs.

I had not remembered the menu being so expensive from my previous visits but still the food was top rate.

We had a wonderful lunch at Patagonia Grill. The food was fabulous and plentiful, the service was good and the setting was very nice. The executive lunch special is a great bargain, and gives the opportunity to try lots of things on the menu. We will be back.

I have been going there for several years and this is the first time that I was disappointed! We ordered the Tomahawk and one of us understood it was a steak worth $80 dollars - it turned out to be $335 (it serves several persons but the meet wasn't that great) - I guess it was a pound???? We knew the wine was expensive but didn't expect the one steak to be that expensive! So go but make sure you ask for pricing!

The food is fantastic, ambiance is great, great service, but it is VERY expensive. That’s why they don’t put their menu with prices anywhere (not even on their website). All of their entrees are over $40 each, including the pasta, it’s crazy. A parrillada for 2 people is $92. A tiny empanada is $7, and a fairly empty glass of Malbec is $15 or more. You’ll spend at least $80 per person. Just be aware. Otherwise, the best meat I had in a long time.

Appetizers, entrees and sides were excellent, except for some distressingly mushy onion rings. Saturday night features live music—skilled saxophonist playing standards—but offset from the main dining room so it truly was background music. Great date night place.

Open Table shows it $$ dollar sign for cost. It is not. It is outrageously expensive. I would equate this to a $$$$ category.
To top things off, one of my dining companions wanted to swap the side dishes on one pork dish with another. The waiter said it would cost 10.00 dollars to do so. Unbelievable! Next, we asked for additional bread. The bread was served warm but nothing fancy, plain French bread. They had the nerve to tell us there is a charge for additional bread.
Their entrees easily average 55-60 plus. Their ravioli costs 65.00. What??? Yes, you heard me! You would think they could offer more than one basket of bread.
I don’t mind spending this type of money for dinner but certainly not at this restaurant.
Open Table, please update to the correct $$$$ so that future diners know what they are getting themselves into.

Great place to eat and visit with friends. Reminds us of Argentina with excellent cimichuri and empanadas.
