Food was great but the service was horrible. The waiters are friendly but the time to serve is out of mind. We order a starter that was cheese and cold cuts and it took almost 45 minutes to be served.
I do recommend the owner to have a better flow in the kitchen otherwise customer will lie the food but will not go back since the service doesn't correspond to the service

Menu options, food, drinks selections, service & food/wine market were terrific! Lovely outdoor patio with solid playlist playing nice background music. Overall excellent independently run dining option with good prices. Enjoyed a deliciously prepared lunch with a small group and everyone left looking forward to a return visit. Was able to shop at the market after lunch for some homemade empanadas, alfajores & Argentinian beer & wine to go. Party on :)

As always eating at itar Bistro its a pleasure, the food, the service and the place; they are absolutely great. Our meats were cooked by a young kid named Juan, he did an outstanding job, both pasta plates were awesome and the mahi no words to describe it.

Thanks again itar.

Probably OpenTable has to know that we made a reservation. We drove 45 min to go to the restaurant and when we arrived at the time of the reservation, the restaurant was closed!!!!
We were very upset and we will never come back again...... seems that they open the restaurant as they please ..... do not care about the reservations.... luck of consideration to the customers!
DO NOT go to this restaurant!!!!

My only regret is not having found this restaurant previously! I have been in Central FL for 13 years...this is without a doubt Top 3 in Central FL, and for the price point, an easy #1!! Amazing food, elegant plating, very typical Argentinian atmosphere, and excellent service. As fantastic as the food is, the fruit juices are probably even better, and I didn't even get to try desserts. Can't wait for my next visit...

The interior is more like a deli than a dinner place, and too cold to my taste. Outdoors was tolerable only in that it was 9pm and finally a comfortable temperature. Service began slowly, as the one server started with six tables, but improved greatly as the meal progressed and others left. The food leans heavily toward beef, as is appropriate, but there's also a section of the menu that's quite Italian. Because of this, one supposes, half the wine list was also Italian, but that complimented the Argentinian offerings nicely. Portions are large, and we almost could have made a meal from the empanadas. The "spicy" ones actually do have some heat to them, it's not just a marketing term.

The food at Itar is exceptional. We highly recommend the lomito (beef loin) with the Malbec reduction and also the same popular Argentine cut with the gorgonzola sauce. Which is not to say that the pastas are not wonderful as well - we are fans of the gnocchi and of the pappardelle. Extensive wine list of Argentine and Italian wines, great appetizers and desserts. The waitstaff is consistently friendly in English, Spanish and Portuguese. And you can bring your pet to dine on patio.

We were questioning why it said .Market in the add. Now we know! Noise or should I say music was too much for the dining area.
Food was good and service very good.
We were expecting a restaurant not an open area. Not described clearly on website. It was different but not probably going to return. Prices were reasonable but there are so many great restaurants in the area.

Service and servers were 5 star all the way. I ordered the empanadas as a starter they were stale and the meat was extremely salty. I ate them because I love empanadas regardless, those were disappointing. Entree Was the Churrasco steak with mash. Mash was tasteless but the steak was Devine perfectly cooked medium rare. I’m disappointed I love Argentinian food and this really was extremely underwhelming for the price.

Itar was a great place for a relaxed dinner. The waitress was engaging, fun and knowledgeable about the food and restaurant overall. Start with the octopus appetizer and then any of the steaks....great flavor, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Wine selection was good and fairly priced.
