L'Atelier d'Argentine Downtown is contemporary Argentinean in food and style as if torn out of the heart of Buenos Aires. Rooted in the history and nestled in the urban and regional landscape, the genuine Argentinean cuisine is distinct with a strong flavorful identity —easy to understand and even easier to love.
L’Atelier d’Argentine’s menu is honest, focusing on the quality of the core ingredient and a true reflection of contemporary Argentinian food.

Natalia Machado is now a host of One World Kitchen, the first original show of GustoTV, a new Canadian network dedicated to all things culinary. Natalia brings her contemporary flair for authentic Argentinian flavors to this exciting series scheduled to air starting summer 2015.

Great authentic Argentinian food, but not great value for money. Food was really good, but it didn’t make up for the slow service or over priced food. The fixed price menu bore no resemblance to the theme of the restaurant. We opted for a la carte, but paid the price. Given that the restaurant was almost empty, I couldn’t understand why the service was so bad. Guess there was more to do in the back than out with the diners.

We were there during Le Chop. We were informed it wasn't happening that night because of Valentine, but that was on Wednesday, but your restaurant was celebrating Valentine week. Anyhow you did honour it which was wonderful. The food was alright, nothing great. But
One thing, the restaurant is very dark, we had to use flashlights to read the menu.

My experience was alright....The food was good (not great) and quite pricey for what you were getting.
I went with two of my co-workers and we decided to order a bunch of different plates and share everything. The waitress was very nice and accomodating to our needs. The restaurant was also pretty quiet even for a Friday evening.
In general, the portions were small and the price super high. Some of the tapas ranged from 12-18$ but were so small we could only have a little bite. The hangar steak was quite good and was 22$ (but does not come with any sides so you would have to order fries-rice-etc as an extra). Desserts were average at best and tiny.

I understand the restaurant is on Crescent and that makes the prices higher....but it really makes it not worth it to go and check out this restaurant.

La nourriture était froide, le service très lent. le restaurant manquait de chauffage. Lors d'un lunch, 2h sans entrée ni dessert, c'est non.

I went for a birthday dinner with 9 of my friends. Off the bat, I didn't feel welcome as I sat down and asked about the le chop menu. Maybe the waiter was having a bad day or didn't like his job, but I certainly was not the only one at the table who felt that way about the service, he was very curt throughout the dinner. There were items missing from the drink menu and le chop menu, and what was mentioned on the website menu (drink specials)was not consistent with prices in the menu. The food, although some dishes very tasty, was tepid in temperature. The side salad or garnish on the main dish was wilted and not appetizing.The fries tasted like old oil, and the panqueques was disappointing as it was with raw banana in a cold crepe. There was no crowd, so the ambiance with friends was cozy. The decor is very nice, too bad the service is feeling the hate. My dining experience falls just short of satisfactory. Hoping the restaurant takes heed and that future diners have truly better things to say. Looking forward!

Steak was not cooked well and took an hour to get.Waiter laughed at us when we didn't order a drink from the bar. NYE menu was simple $50 for a soup steak and dessert. Soup was good. Dessert was ok.

Went for an early New Year’s Eve dinner. Fixed menu but food was good. Seemed like they were in a rush to get people out to move on to their party later in the evening

If you are looking for a true authentic Argentinian place it might not meet your expectations but the food is still really good!

La qualité de la nourriture et la cuisine son très bons. Par contre, le restaurant était tellement froid que nous avons due manger avec notre manteau! Et ce, malgré les requêtes répétées au serveur d'augmenter le chauffage, ce qui n'a evidemment jamais été fait. Le service était acceptable, mais le serveur nous dictait ce que nous devion laisser comme pourboire, ce qui était assez "ordinaire", surtout qu'il recommandait 18%.
Il y avait trois items (plats principaux) qui n'étaient pas disponibles lors de notre commande, ce qui me laisse croire que le restaurant était en voie de fermeture définitive.

Très belle première expérience; je vais définitivement y retourner. Le seul hic: il faisait très froid dans le restaurant.

This was by far one of the worst meals we have ever had. I ordered the Mediterranean Sea bass. The fish was frozen and didn’t look like any sea bass I have ever had, the sauce was over salted, the rice was under cooked and the muscles tasted like they had gone bad. My boyfriend got the ribeye. The quality of meat was terrible and full of gristle. Both meals were inedible. We did not eat it, told the waitress and she still proceeded to charge us for the meals, which were extremely over priced to begin with. I complained to another waiter who eventually rectified it. Overall I would never recommend this restaurant and it’s a shame because it is in one of the most popular areas of the city.

Rapport qualité prix vraiment décevant, pourquoi ne pas inclure un accompagnement avec un steak a 33$? De plus le service est assez lent, 40 min pour avoir les factures.

Nous avons réservé à la dernière minute, l’endroit offre peu de stationnement, mais nous sommes sur Crescent! Très bon service un staff très accueillant et bien rodé. Belle carte de vin d’Argentine , avec quelques vins européens. On y vient pour la cuisine d’arentine, donc allez-up our les acouoe Argentine, les viandes sont succulentes, et les cuissons parfaites. Le souper suivait une rencontre d affaire avec des fournisseurs américains dont certains originaient du Texas, donc le bœuf ils apprécient. Ils n’avaient que des compliments pour le chef.

The ambiance was great and it's a very quiet which makes it very nice for a date. We were a bit disappointed about the salmon and the desserts. The steak was good, some vegetables served with it would have made the plate better.

Great ambiance. MTL a la table menu was great and quickly served. We both took lamb empanadas which were amazing, and chocolate flan, which was surprisingly good despite the fact that I am usually not a fan of that type of texture. For the main course, I took steak with potato salad. The steak was good but the potato salad was WOW. My partner took the salmon plate which neither of us would recommend. Overall, great date night!
