Superb appetizers and steaks
Mushrooms with truffle oil & poached egg- wow! The croquettas, empanadas, and skirt steak (with a beautiful and yummy head of sweet & luscious roasted garlic) were beautifully prepared and so tasty. We’ll be back!
Fantastic service and the food was amazing. They remembered it was our anniversary and made the evening special.
We had a wonderful meal at Balvanera. Loved loved loved the empanadas! Everything we tasted was delicious and service was friendly and efficient. Can't wait to return.
The food was amazing! Service was quick and very friendly.
Excellent Staff. Great food. I would have given 5 stars except I ordered my skirt steak medium rare and it was way underdone. Husbands sirloin came out on point. Side salad was excellent. Epanadas and Grilled Octopus delicious. So 4 .5 for me
Dinner with another couple
I absolutely LOVE Balvanera! It's a wonderful take on Argentine food--classics but with updated twists. Great wine offerings and a charming ambiance!
Cozy, beautiful & delicious food, friendly staff, relaxed
Amazing Argentinan restaurant!
Great service and delicious meats. And the beer is great .
Excellent wine list, good-quality meat. We had a very nice time
All our food was delicious, and the service was excellent. Thanks for a great meal!
Red sauce that came with the skirt steak was delicious. Wait staff very friendly. The kids enjoyed the ham and cheese empanadas (and so did I). Definitely coming again.
We arrived early for a brunch here, and were fortunate that there were very few people inside. The waiters were attentive, and the food was delicious. It really felt like an undiscovered gem.
Love the food here
Great energy in an elegant yet casual room with exceptional service from a very helpful waiter.
Food was above expectations as we were not prepared for anything in particular.
We came with friends who travel a lot to Argentina. So we gave a shot.
Cauliflower appetiser it's a must starter. So is the octopus and the mushrooms.
Steak was above par too. Nice wine list. Definitely considering to go back.
Not even close to what we expected. The menu on the open table info sone of the diabes are not available
The food was great but it was INCREDIBLY loud. There was a party group there for dinner that was so loud that every other table looked visibly distracted from their own meals. It's a bit annoying that the staff couldn't tell them to tone it down even a little.
Aside from that, the food was fantastic.
The staff was nice but they took forever to do anything and I think it's mainly because their attention was turned toward the party group.
I think on an average day, the noise level would be much better.
Great food empanadas and outside table
Excellent food and service. I will go back and bring friends.
Great skirt steak and fries. Solid food but not your typical overpriced Argentine steak house. I will be back
Food was excellent and service was sometimes slow but extremely cordial. We ordered a drink that was not available and received free mimosas instead, which was nice. We had brunch on Mother's day and everything we tried exceeded our expectations.
Staff was professional though welcoming and the environment was warm and comfortable. The corn empanadas were the best empanadas I have ever had and the meat platter was perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant!
I love this restaurant. The food is great; if you like a good steak this is definitely the place for you. It’s also in a fantastic location if you fancy a cocktail afterwards.
Nice ambiance, good food. Dish was very simple though for it's price. Service was functional.
Nice steak and good sides. Try the croquettes--they are delicious and easy to share.
Marvelous empanadas, sausages, steaks...and a good expansion of the vegetable side of the menu since our last visit...
Excellent torta dessert
The steak was excellent!!! The waitstaff were friendly and attentive!
Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Always a great experience at this place. We love it.
Great Argentinean food and a great place for a date. Get the tabla de carnes!
I went with a friend and we had a great meal. It was quiet, the atmosphere was perfect as was the service and the food. I will definitely be going back.
Came here for my Fiancé’s Birthday one time and ever since then have kept coming back for every reason we can think of!.. great service and amazing food. Quite possibly the best steak in all the city! Worth comparing and finding out yourself;)
we are meat lovers and we LOVED their rib eye! mouth watering, tender, delicious! service was adorable and very accommodating - thumbs up!
Food is excellent and a great value! The staff was very accommodating and added some special touches for my friend's birthday. Will go again!
Love this cozy, noisy, restaurant in the LES. Food is interesting, different and the staff do a great job offering advice for ordering. Wine list is great. Thoroughly enjoyed!
excellent food! would love to come back!
Amazing service, great food, and awesome atmosphere. Perfect date night or girls dinner.
