The entire experience was great. The whole restaurant felt warm and inviting. The food was prepared perfectly. The service was prompt and appropriate. We all left satiated and not too light in the wallet. Well worth the trip downtown.

Everything was amazing from the food to the service. Our waiter Fernando was excellent and made sure to make us feel welcome! The food was so savory!! I love my meat cooked well done however sometimes I find that they over cooked it and leave it dry and tasteless, not at Buenos Aires Grill! The meet was cooked well and so juicy and savory!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Very good meal and drinks. Very friendly server who attended all our needs. My steak was perfect and I have had not better mushrooms. My wife and myself said, best meal in years and I meant it.

Made reservations for this first visit. The food was delicious. The steak was medium well instead of medium as we ordered but it was still perfect. I’d suggest splitting the tomahawk steak. It’s perfect for two.

Went for our anniversary dinner. We opted to sit outside in the sun which was very pleasant. We shared the Parrillada platter, mushrooms, and watermelon salad which were all so tasty. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. They even comped us a Dulce de leche dessert as we were celebrating at their restaurant. Overall, a 5 star experience. We will definitely eat there again.

Hoped for an Argentinean steakhouse experience like maybe steaks from Argentina? Not sure what this restaurant was...relatively good USDA steaks with sides in a so called tango bar with a few Argentinean "special" preparations/dishes on the menu. I guess I was mistaken that there would be an 'experience' here...the food was OK, incredibly salty and highly expensive for what it was. Steak preparation was pretty good and the server was nice but offered nothing special. There were maybe 2 tables seated so it was really empty. We got there when they opened but even when we left there may have been only one more table seated. I guess the bar does well? Not sure what keeps this restaurant open.

It's too expensive for what you get. We order the Parrillada for two and it appears that they eliminated the cold bar and instead just dump a bunch of overcooked fries on the grill with the meat. It really cheapens the meal and makes the $80 paid for this meal not even close to being worth it. Next time I want that style of meat I will go to Ipanema across the street while I will pay a little bit more but I will get more variety and a cold bar instead of overcooked french fries and a few pieces of meat.

We ordered the calamari appetizer, the combined meats for 3 (with fries) and the corn and mushroom dishes as sides. The calamari was fried well. The meats were delicious and didn't need much adornment. The fries that came with them were soaked in oil, my companions thought them especially good that way, I didn't agree. The corn dish was good. I didn't expect the mushrooms to be cold. My husband's complementary birthday flan was quite good. I enjoyed the watching the couple tango. I guess my only real complaint is that our waiter wasn't very knowledgeable about the menu.

We went to burnish Aires grill for a late Valentine’s Day dinner as a family. It was super cute and clean inside, the hostess was very sweet, and service was prompt. The food is sooop worth the money. Do yourself a favor and book a reservation NOW.

I have been wanting to try this place out for a long time and we finally went for our anniversary. The place was quiet (it was a Tuesday night after all) and that added to a great romantic ambiance. Our waiter was the only one serving that night and he did a great job juggling the people there. He was also the bartender and host. What I loved about him was he was friendly but mostly honest and didn’t try to sway us to get something we wouldn’t enjoy when we asked his opinion. Plus he makes a great pisco sour and knows his wine pairings. The food itself was AMAZING! I’ve never enjoyed a steak so much. I got the American Wagyu Bife Ancho with sweet potato and my bf chose the American Wagyu Bife de Chorizo with mashed potatoes. It was all delicious. They know how to make steak and potatoes and I’m sure everything else they serve. Everything we ordered was yummy. I would love to come back here again and hopefully soon!

This is a wonderful date night for steak lovers. I love the ambiance any night but on the nights when a tango dancing couple sweeps through the room every so often, it’s even more fun and carries you away. The steaks are great and extra sides dishes are modestly priced to entice. I like the zesty corn one a lot.

Incredibly disappointed with our experience. Per photos and other reviews, we were excited to book a reservations for V-Day. We already anticipated a busy night due to the holiday, but did not expect the level of poor service we experienced. The waiter never asked us for our drink order, once he we promoted him with our drink order, we had to ask several times and finally went to the hostess for assistance. Our steak was not cooked to order, one coming out completely undercooked and raw. Once this was escalated to the manager’s attention, his quick response, before we finished explaining what was happening, was to comp our meal. He advised it was a holiday and implied it should have been expected. Poor service overall. So disappointed.

We went there on Valentines day, environment is good. Tables are kinda closed to each other but overall not very noisy.
We really like the food. USDA prime ribeye is super juicy and tender, at the same time has the best crust I've ever had before. Sausage starter is also very unique.
We picked cocktail from Valentines day drink menu and they were both tasty.

We were regulars at Buenos Aires Grill's old location and were excited about its new location on 1st Ave. This was our second visit and unfortunately, if we didn't have the LivingSocial discount, I would have been disappointed with our meal. With the discount, it was an ok meal. The service was very good but both of our steaks were rare--one was extra rare, if there is such a category. In hindsight, I should have sent my extra-rare steak back instead of swapping it with my husband's much thinner but still rare steak. I miss the salad bar and am not sure how long Buenos Aires Grill can stay afloat when they are only attracting a handful of guests during the week.

Horribly understaffed on a Saturday. Apologetic but very Gen Z not too concerned. The manager came out and apologized but again he was not overly concerned nor was he out on the floor waiting tables to help out. Comped our drinks that came a half an hour after we ordered and after being brought lukewarm Empanads.
Have loved the restaurant for years but we walked out.

The atmosphere is wonderful, and the short tango shows are a nice touch. We found the Burrata salad incredible, the steak good, and the fries overly oily. The service was mostly great -- very attentive and helpful. The one thing that was odd was that we ordered a nice bottle of wine, and it was opened at the bar and brought to us open. There also wasn't any 'taste' to ensure that the bottle wasn't oxidized. For a restaurant that serves quite nice, expensive bottles, I would like to see them take as much care with their wine service as they seem to take with their food. Otherwise, we had a great experience here!

Third visit to Seattle and third time to Buenos Aires Grill. Ambiance, food, wine, and tango go together to create a sultry, sensual dining experience (and I've only gone with girl friends!). The servers are attentive without rushing or being intrusive. The foo/wine are divine. The tango is inspiring. See you in March!
