Travel back in time to Argentina’s Golden Age – when Buenos Aires was booming with tango salons, nightlife, restaurants and opera houses. The cityscape was decorated with magnificent art nouveau and neo-classical architecture. The best bartenders from all over the world traveled south to the roaring saloons and nightclubs.
Experience the aura of the Golden Age through our décor: a blend of wooden bodegas, raw and recycled materials, marble, copper, and stone and concrete like the porteño streets. Metallic adornments and the hand-painted antique tin ceiling give a hint of Golden era glamour.
Artango's food goes back to Argentine roots, without compromising a contemporary touch. Local, fresh ingredients are used to create rustic, flavorful dishes. Try the best steaks in town using ancestral Argentine techniques. Enjoy a full bar with prohibition-era inspired cocktails, and a selection of classic and rare wines from Europe to Argentina.

My husband and I went because of the Brazilian trio playing that night. It was busy and noisy and we weren't able to seat close to the music. But even with the noise level, we could enjoy the music (excellent) and the food surprised us with its freshness and quality. Also, for an Argentinian restaurant, we were pleased to find great options besides meat. The ceviche trio was fantastic, as were the empanadas and the desserts were amazing (we generally are disappointed with desserts). We will be back!

My first time at Artango...candlelit interior and nice artwork all around the space. It was raining and cold outside and my friend and I were so excited to catch up and enjoy a juicy steak. The food was excellent. I tried the empanadas (baked, so yum) and my friend had the grilled octopus. Then we had the steak platter for two with different cuts and sauces. The rib eye was my favorite of the three with the spicy chimichurri. Our waiter recommended a Malbec to go with our dinner. Next time I want to try their cocktails and tango classes. Unique spot in Chicago.

Not Argentinean taste. Thus is an Americanized Argentinean cuisine. Think of a "Chipotle Mexican meals"
Servings are way too small.

We made reservations via Open Table with a promotion. This was a birthday dinner for 2 of us, noted in the reservation. The space is large, open and visually interesting. We were first to arrive and sat in the front section. Other couples came to sit in this section which stayed nicely quiet until the business group of 10-12 loudly took over the space. The one waiter was generally pleasant and maybe a bit overly descriptive of the simple menu and options. Drinks were interesting and fun to drink. Ceviche flight was served in stacks which allowed the juices to drain to the bottom so that the top pieces were flavorless. We shared a steak flight (3 pieces smaller than the palm of your hand) which was tasty but fell short of a good value at $53. Comes with potato wedges which could not be substituted with mashed (same price in sides). No mention from the waiter regarding birthday options. We were done and gone in just over an hour.

This was a date night dinner and we were trying something new. We won’t be going back. We had an 8:30 reservation. We were sat at a two top table behind a partial wall erected next to the stage. I could not see any of the live stage act. My husband could only see if he leaned all the way back in his chair and peered around the wall. The noise from the stage however was deafening and we found it extremely difficult to hold a conversation while they were performing. From what I could tell we were one of the only tables in the place with this level of an obstructed view. I was very surprised that the hostess did not ask us if the table would be ok (given the obstruction and the volume being so close to the stage) when she sat us. — but she didn’t. We were going to ask to be moved when we saw a table open up but it took so long for our waitress to come back — the open table was seated again before we could ask. We had to wait a very long time to order drinks and then another long period to get the drinks. And then had to wait again for our waitress to come back and take our order. The cocktails were poor to mediocre and definitely overpriced for what they were. The empanadas were great. My husband and I both ordered steaks, a filet and a ribeye. The flavoring was good but the cuts of meat were not particularly high in quality which was disappointing given the hefty price tag. Also, I’m not sure who designed the ladies bathroom but they need to gut it and start over. Totally dysfunctional.

None of the food felt very fresh or of high quality. Also the filet we ordered was huge with A good amount of fat... pretty sure it was not a tenderloin. There are plenty of better spots in Lincoln Square.

This was my first time at their new location. Definitely has a good ambiance and love the space. Similar to my previous visit I thought the food was very good, but maybe a bit overpriced. Our service was fantastic and did a great job explaining the menu and recommending items.

The staff was wonderful and the food terrific. The menu ranged from affordable, to some pricy items. I love seafood, and their grilled octopus was the most tender I've ever had. I like how the Asado Argentino had 4 different meats to sample.

The only negative were it was loud because it's a big open space that fits a lot of people, most of whom were talking, and even shouting. It wouldn't be so bad if my girlfriend and I weren't also there for a show and had a hard time hearing the singer. That evening they had a flamenco dancer dancing to a singer accompanied by a guitarist. They were amazing. The second negative was that from time to time other diners stood up by the stage to get a better view and take pictures/videos, which was distracting and rude because they often blocked our view. I don't think the staff should allow that.

Overall, it was a good experience, and we'll be back to try other things on the menu.

Artango has turned into our favorite restaurant for live music. This time it featured a Latin Jazz guiter trio. Music was wonderful, as is the atmosphere. Very romantic for a date or get together with good friends. We had steak and rabbit with empanadas. Cocktails were excellent and we enjoyed watching the bar tender making them. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Maybe we just had that rare sub-par experience at a good place. No "starter"bread. Limited menu. Entree portions were small. Asked for a menu to order another item. Waited 15 minutes for the server to come back to the table to take my order. Still willing to recommend because other diners were satisfied.

Great service- we were a party of 10 (six who had never been to this restaurant) with an early reservation and needing to be out the door within 100 minutes. Half the party arrived on time, ordered cocktails and appetizers for the table (which arrived before rest of party). As soon as the latecomers arrived - the server took their drink orders- allowed them time to settle in and came back to explain menu and take dinner orders. Halfway into service- additional staff reported for work (as more diners arrived)--and it was perfect. We all had a second (or third ) drink with dinner and managed to be out the door in time to make the curtain call down in Lincoln Park.
Trio of ceviche was fresh and enjoyed by all- as was the eggplant "caviar". The pickiest steak eaters got what they ordered (medium well, not-garnished)- two couples enjoyed the platters for two- and extra sides were a big hit (asparagus, sweet potato and mashed potato- which also had another veg, cauliflower? in the mash, but very tasty.) Server explained (and reexplained) the choices and sauces in a kind and friendly manner.

Valentine’s day. Staff seemed overwhelmed. We were told the kitchen was backed up when our food didn’t come out for a good long while. May be a better option on a quiet night. Apps on prefixed menu left much to be desired. Main entree was much more on point. Get the Sangria.

Our dinner was only ok. Our server was the main issue. We sat down around 8.45p and the menu was a 3 course fixed price selection for Valentine's Day. He took our appetizer order and nothing else. The appetizers came and we weren't checked on or asked about main courses, dessert or drinks for another 45 minutes to an hour. Mind you, our server passed by us at least 6 times, never stopped in to check if we needed anything and barely looked our way.

When he did stop, he said 'your food should be out in just a moment.' My reply was 'that would be amazing seeing that you haven't even taken our main dish order or dessert.' Shocked, he quickly took our order and our food didn't show up for about 45 minutes. We got the food and it was honestly sub par. It was luke warm and nothing special.

Probably won't be going back.
