Argentinean
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.

Very entertaining and compelling Club environment. Great night out for food and a show. Argentinian music and dance was fantastic. High energy in an open and well designed environment. A sense of shared experience was present for all, even those not know. Food is good, but not great. Nicely presented although not even close to expectations in the highly competitive Chicago food scene. Drinks on the other were creative and well curated. Multiple crafted cocktails. Summary: great night out, excellent drinks, outstanding entertainment, adequate food.

Not our first visit, we try to come every time there is a classic guitar or a flamenco show, got the octopus on the grill, very nice cooked, not chewy, fish of the day was barzini, was excellent, wife and friends got steaks and were very happy. We follow our waitress recommendation and got a nice bottle of Malbec. Flamenco show was excellent. Overall, a beautiful night, we will go back.

We went for the Flamenco show and dinner. The show was professional with a good dancer, vocalist and guitarist. The performers were embracing of the little kids who came to dance on the sidelines and other adults who came for dinner and were clearly dancers on a night off. It was a lovely atmosphere and what Flamenco is all about.

The food was very good from appetizer to dessert.

Went here for the first time and can say was not disappointed! The main flaw of the evening would be that as a table with a reservation I would have expected to have been sat in the direction facing the stage to be able to thoroughly enjoy the 30 minute tango dancers. I sat giving my back to the stage so when the dancers came out, I had to turnaround (couch seating) and watch them without being able to enjoy my meal. And the drink delivery was delayed, the table next to us also complained about how they were almost done with their meal and the drinks had not arrived. We enjoyed the grilled octopus and an empanada trio as appetizers with 2 of their signature cocktails. The octopus was perfectly grilled and paired perfectly with the purple sweet potato mash, arugula and sauce. I'd skip the empanadas, definitely not the highlight of dinner. We chose to share the traditional Asado and of the 4 items (flank, morcilla, chorizo and short rib) the short rib was the winner! The flank stay was a close second, the morcilla is definitely acquired taste but highly recommended if you never have had it. To accompany our meal we added charred brussel sprouts and fried plantains, the sweetness of the plantains balanced this meal. Dessert was inevitable, mostly because the place I had in mind post dinner was closed. Opted for the mil novias - which is a super crispy pastry puff (as close as I could get to describe it) with a passion fruit mousse. It was beautiful to the eye but due to the nature of the pastry it was a bit dry if you got a bite with no mousse and it actually hurt my gum at one point - didn't have much after that. Service was nice, not too constant, we did have to grab out servers attention once, who takes an empty bottle of water and doesn't replace it? And just so you know, you will be charged the sparkling water if you select it over still. I have been to restaurants where this isn't the case so shocked when I saw it as the 1st item on our bill.

This is our second time at Artango. The steak is awesome! They had a solo guitarist playing and it was beautiful. It really added to the meal. Our server the first time around was exceptional. This time our server was just ok. He may have been busier than expected. I was under the impression we were supposed to get a special deal for booking on open table. But it wasn’t offered and I didn’t know if I was supposed to ask for it. Maybe next time?

The service started out a bit slow, but once our nice cocktails arrived the pacing was perfect. Great Caipirinhas, nice ceviche (Nikkei) and empanadas (beef)!

Para Compartir, steak tasting plate for two, is yummy and enough for three when accompanied with a couple of sides; get the plantains!

The churro desert is to die for with the tres leche and chocolate dipping sauces!

This is not just a restaurant. If you go when there's live music, it's an experience. The food, service, and ambiance are wonderful, and the music and the crowd the night we were there really made our night. The one small caveat is that the bar executes their signature cocktails well, but a standard drink was oddly mixed. Our server replaced it immediately, so it was all good. Don't let the prices on the shared dishes scare you. They are an excellent value.

I traveled to this place from Chicago North suburbs to celebrate a birthday. To my big surprise the service was so terrible that I would leave that place but didn't want to upset my guests. Waited for food for about 45-50 min, asked for water refill and never got it . Ever..... Will never go back there again.

The food was very good. The main course had three different steak and unfortunately one was rare. The other two medium rare, which I had requested. The waitress was not very attentive and it took time to get our order in. The live tango was amazing, but the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation with my wife. The appetizers and dessert were excellent. Overall a good experience and we would give it another shot.

Love this place! Always so fun and festive. We've been a few times before, but this time we came for Mother's Day brunch. The food was great as always. My only complaint was that the prix-fixe option for kids was $25 - which seemed a bit absurd. My daughter ordered the french toast, and it was literally 2 half pieces of toast.... so $25 felt a little steep.

I looked forward to trying Artango and was happy we finally did. The ceviches were made of fresh fish and the empanadas were warm and well baked. My wife and daughter split a paella, my son had the rib-eye steak, his girlfriend had the lamb patagonico with polenta, and I had the slow-grilled short ribs. The meats were cooked to perfection. The portions were generous and we all left very satisfied. We left enough room for desserts as well. The Oblivion is excellent if you’re a chocolate lover and the flan and milhojas were also excellent. We had a great time!

Food is good, but for the portion the price wasn't matching. 2 ppl in our party had the same dish and both were missing a main [filling] ingredient. One dish had the whole middle of the Chicken milanesa, Raw. Service was bad. Asked for straw when water was served, never came. Someone in our party ordered a mimosa, Never came. Some orders were wrong or waiting too long for one. Waiter check-in with us [party of 8] three times in a matter of 2 hrs.

We visited this place many times, my ceviche crudo was excellent, same for the mushroom with tomato and cheese. I had the fish of the day, branzino, whole fish, very tasteful, but the skin was on the top with the sauce over the skin, make more sense the other way, since you don't eat the skin. Wife got the beef, was very good. Nice bottle of Malbec. The Quitarra Azull show and the flamenco performance were awsome.
Overall, a beautiful night, will go back.

The server kept rushing us and didn’t even introduce himself. This was our first time there and we had to constantly keep asking questions about the menu. For the price, I expected the service to be a little more personal. He didn’t even look at us, he was more concerned about the iPad than the food we were ordering off the menu.
