The ambiance of the place is great, but the food is extremely mediocre.
We went there for restaurant week and were not impressed by anything we ate. Three people ordered steak but none of us received the steak as per our order. One of the steaks was so rare that there was some blood oozing, but about a quarter of the same steak was cooked to medium-rare.
Would perhaps go for drinks but not for food.

We celebrated NYE at Bar Vasquez. When we arrived the manager was working at the hostess stand and let us know that they were running behind and it would be a while past our reservation before we could be sat. We waited over an hour for a table, but we enjoyed a few drinks at the bar. Once sat, the service was terrific, and the food was delicious. We all had different choices, and no one was disappointed. I was nervous that the food would not be good on a big holiday with a prix fixe menu, but I was completely wrong. I didn't get her name, but the manager who was working that night did a fantastic job of handling frustrated guests. I will definitely return.

I recommend Bar Vazquez for the uniqueness and quality of its menu. Everything we had on the price fix menu was excellent. However, I would not return on New Year's Eve. I was disappointed that my party of four was seated in an overflow room on the second floor. I had booked the reservation a month in advance and responded by phone several times to confirm the reservation. I asked for seating on the second floor and assumed it would-be along the railing so we could enjoy the entertainment and general ambience of the evening. When we were seated, we asked if we could sit in the main area but were told no changes could be made at that point. Very disappointing.

The food and service were exceptional - it’s a beautiful space, and the music very much added to the experience. I recommend getting tapas - it lets you try a lot of things on the menu and is fun to share on a date.

Still a great space. I like the menu for the most part. Ordered crispy calamari. It was Luke warm and not crispy. Waitress just giggles when I commented. Hmmm. Empanadas very tasty. Mince wine. She was a bit ignorant in my wine questions but was happy to get advise. She was a sweetheart. Shocked at the small crowd at the holidays on a Thursday night. Guess that is the new BALTIMORE.

Very disappointing. Service was soooo slow!! Restaurant wasn’t that busy so had no idea why we had to wait so long! When food arrived it was cold. My husband ordered 3 lamb chops but received 2. Another one arrived about 5 minutes later and they were all terrible.
In general it was expensive and not worth the price! There were 6 of us and no one enjoyed their meal.

The duck, octopus and filet mignon are out of this world good! We love love love Freddy! He made us feel like VIPs and was so friendly. He checked in on us throughout the night and made us feel valued. We came for my mom's 60th birthday on Nov 14 and everyone from Freddy to our waiter to the bartenders later in the evening made the night incredible.

Even though we had reservation and arriving on time we had to wait for hostess, there were no one at the entrance to greet guests.
No specials for special occasions. Reservation stated it was birthday celebration and hostess still asked. Table had candle and no one lit it and I had to do it myself even though other tables had candles lit. Restaurant didn’t make a smallest attempt to make it anyhow special. Why even bother if it’s special occasion?
Love the food but won’t go for special occasion as they don’t make you feel any special at all.

I brought my family and friends here for my 25th birthday dinner and I was extremely happy with the experience. Food was amazing, our server was an absolute joy and I loved sitting front and center next to the jazz trio. A perfect night.

The ambiance is secomd to none. Our food was very good, but our server was just ok. We are half Argentinian so it’s nice that there is a high quality Argentine restaurant in Baltimore. It is a very good date place with a chic feel.

This place was recommended to me by a friend some time ago and I was finally able to get a reservation. It’s exactly the ambiance of a very nice argentine restaurant. The music is live and it’s lovely. The food and drinks are really good. The service is outstanding. The whole experience was 5 stars. I will definitely come back and recommend it to others.

I felt compelled to write a review after our experience last night. The apps were decent, pasta good, duck delicious, but the steaks were not.We asked to speak to the manager about the tough and chewy wagyu. Inedible. When she came over - glass of champagne in hand - she essentially told us we didn’t know about steak and cuts of meat. We were appalled. My wife and friends looked at each other like - “what just happened.” Her pompous attitude ruined the night. At least the steak was taken off the bill but needless to say, with all our dining options, we will never return.
