Steakhouse
Experience Buenos Aires’ Golden Age at Artango Bar and Steakhouse, where the rich cultural heritage of Argentina comes alive. Set amidst a tableau of Art Nouveau and Neo-classical architecture and décor are the exciting tastes, lively music and dancing of Argentina.

An evening at Artango feels as if you’ve traveled to Buenos Aires, and guests have the opportunity to enjoy authentic Argentinian steaks prepared by Executive Chef Saul Roman.

Roman’s selection of 120 day wet-aged, grass-fed black angus beef cuts are grilled on an Argentinian parrilla at a slightly lower temperature and for a longer period of time – similar to the Patagonian method of barbecuing crafted by Buenos Aires-born celebrity chef, Francis Mallmann.
Chef Roman finds the Argentine cuts to be lean, tender and full of flavor.
Pair your meal with Prohibition-era cocktails and both classic and rare European and Argentine wines.
Dining at Artango is a memorable journey to Argentina.

I will never come here again. I came here for NYE dinner and there was supposed to be live latin jazz all night. There was no live music for an hour and a half, so the majority of the time I was there. When the band finally did come on, they played stevie wonder covers, not even latin jazz. They were not good at all. The NYE dinner was a total mess. They only gave us half the appetizer dish that we should have gotten, nothing tasted great and the things that they have on their normal menu didnt even look like they normally would. Service was super slow and unfriendly. We were served a near-raw steak, which we requested to be medium rare. It was cold in the center. The dessert was baked for probably a fraction of the time it should have been. The lime beans that came with my dish was about one tablespoon smeared all over the plate in a thin paste. Two other tables nearby sent back their food, too. I have never seen anything like that in a restaraunt. I truly feel robbed after coming here and I will never be back. I would recommend someone to go literally anywhere else than here. Like find the tamale guy and you will have a better time.

NYE out with my large group of friends (13 this year) is an annual event. We have been to Artango three times; the first time at the Ravenswood location and twice here.

We are always impressed with the food and the service. This year was no exception!

Gracias!

We enjoyed dining at Artango very much. However, we came there to hear the music. It was so loud there that we were unable to hear Luciano, Ana, and Heitor perform. We were sitting on the right side against the wall where there weren't any speakers. The spot where we sat was really comfy, but we couldn't hear. Perhaps you could think about getting a sound engineer in to evaluate the room and make effective changes in the acoustics. I know it's not realistic to expect people to be quiet. Changng the ceiling and walls and placing speakers in better places could really help!! (I didn't want the review to reflect one star but couldn't edit it-sorry)

Loved the entertainment. Ana Ewerling. She is so engaging, confident and a great talent. The noise level and clanging from the room interfered
A little. All in all a magical night with the band and Ana Ewerling!

Great for drinks and ambiance. Cocktails and music are amazing. The food was only passable. I’ve been there when it’s been better, so might have been an off night. It was Christmas Day dinner, so it was a set menu, and I wonder if it was all a bit too prepped in advance, or if the regular staff was off.

Family dinner. Loved the atmosphere, menu, cocktails and service. Food was really good except My Paella which was not very good as the seafood was overcooked - mushy prawn and rubbery calamari. Very disappointing as I was really looking forward to it. Will try the restaurant again, just not the paella.

We ordered the steak flight (which was amazing) and the short rib (which we would not recommend). The cocktails were very good and the service could not have been better. Vilma was our waitress and she took our experience to the next level! We will be requesting her when we dine again.

I asked to be close to the stage . I wasn’t .
On website it said the show started at 8pm it didn’t it was the main reason we came to the restaurant . We left without seeing anything .
The staff when asked about it acted as if they didn’t care.

The food was delicious. Excellent appetizers and high quality steaks. The live music created a very nice atmosphere. We were seated close enough to enjoy, yet still able to carry on a conversation. Great service!

All of the food was fantastic! Started with the provoleta (crisp bread with a side of flavorful melted cheese), Had a variety of the empanadas( great!) and the ceviche was very good. Steaks were cooked perfectly and were delicious. Server was courteous and prompt. No complaints! The prices arent cheap but the food was well worth it. Great atmosphere and also had some live music which was good but not overly loud. Highly recommend!

Thanksgiving dinner. The steak was burnt on the outside. Had to fill my own wine glass part of the time. It was really hard to talk to my wife it was so loud. Also we asked for a booth when we arrived with reservation and was told no.

We went for Thanksgiving Dinner. Artango was putting on quite a show. There was a prix fixe dinner with options for Appetizer, Entree and Dessert.

The place was pretty full for Thanksgiving. Service was attentive and friendly. The cocktails were great, there were plenty of wines to choose from. All of the food was delicious. Particularly the empanadas and lobster bisque. Steaks were great, too.

Most of all, the band was terrific, playing all kinds of instrumental covers and standards. We had a wonderful time.

Artango is an authentic gem that is a great anchor to a rapidly changing Lincoln Square. The food is great and the wine menu terrifically compliments the food. Great for a romantic dinner or a fun and raucous group outing. Live tango is a great addition.

Incredible appetizers (ceviche & grilled octopus was our favorite) and steaks. Beautiful ambience and fantastic service.
They also have a nice selection of exceptional wines. Absolutely first rate experience.
I highly recommend visiting on a night that has live entertainment.
They even offer Tango lessons ~ Matthew

My family and I live in the neighborhood, and Artango has become our "go to" place when where in a spur-of-the-moment mood for steak. The food has always been great, the cocktail menu is wonderful, and the dessert menu imaginative. We are really glad it's there.

The service was aweful. Francisco kept us wait too long and got one order wrong. My mother ordered a soup and an entree at the same time and they didn't bring out the soup before the entree. Soups and salads should always come out first besides that the food was delicious
