Wow, behind those doors, who knew!! The more we ordered, the more we loved it. Luckily share plates is the theme here b/c you literally want a bite of everything. We had great service and my only semi issue was how loud it was in the restaurant. It's not a big deal, but if you are looking for a quite meal, this probably isn't the best spot to choose. Super lively, very lovely staff and we shall return!

Love this place! I always bring friends from out of town to impress and I’ve never been disappointed. I will say the music was playing way too loud for a Monday evening for a business dinner.

Portions for some appetizers were pretty small, e.g. fish ceviche. Taste was awesome would have loved to have more than one bite of it for what you pay. Drinks are awesome... Ambiance is also great.

I always have a great time at Lolinda with really chill and nice service and their skirt steaks are also top notch. They really know how to cook meat exactly how a customer wants it. It is very lively, so I don't know if I would take my parents, who enjoy quieter dining experience, here but for friends and siblings night out, this this the place to be!

We had a lovely birthday dinner. The staff was very nice and attentive. The general manager gave us four complementary shots of a delicious Amaro digestif, one for my girlfriend and i, one for himself and one for our waitress. So much fun! They also gave us a birthday cake, of course. It was a slice of a four layer cake, alternating chocolate and tres leches. Yum!

I would recommend Lolinda. However, the noise level, makes a conversation impossible without shouting. The Chardonnay we ordered was not chilled, we asked for ice. And The Chardonnay tasted more like a Sauvignon Blanc than a Chardonnay. The Malbec was the excellent.

The ambiance was romantic and chic. Prices for the amount of food too high.
The asado for two was more for one not worth the $48. I don’t think I will be going back nor recommend it. Our waitress was very very nice.

The food is pretty good. The only bad thing is that you have to wait for everything for a long time. The place was way too noisy. You could barely hear what the people on your table were saying. The tables are too close to each other as well. The aesthetic of the place is very nice but too much noise and too much waiting.

Great service, food and wine. Not the best chimichurri I’ve had but not bad. The variety was excellent. Recommend the bone marrow if you like rich, buttery deliciousness. The peppers are also excellent.

My wife and I are travelling from Scotland and have been recommended to go here, it is an amazing place!
The food was incredible! Our waiter was really good and a lovely person! He’s travelling to the uk in 2 weeks time so we helped him out with some places to go, eat and drink.

All in all, great service, great food and a great atmosphere!

Fantastic food but our server was terrible and with a lot of attitude towards us. One of the glasses broke (exploded) on our table and she didn’t even apologize and just blamed it on the “ghosts” which was so ridiculous.

There was not one stand out dish and we had eight different things even the steak was lackluster. :( My partner sat facing the open kitchen, which isn't a treat as there is little to see but florescent lighting.

I have been coming to Lolinda for a few years and they have never disappointed until now. They recently changed their Tartar - a delicatessen I looked forward to every time. Needless to say, I will not be ordering the tartar any longer. Furthermore, it seems that the restaurant filters through waiters/waitresses. My last few experiences have been with waiters/waitresses that seem to be training and lack good service. I expect more from a trendy and higher-priced restaurant.

Not authentic Argentinian food at all. Good food, but definitely not close to authentic Argentinian. Tables are right next to each other so there's no privacy at all, we could hear every word of the conversations of the 3 tables closest to us.

Okkkkk so! The food was the best food I’ve had since 2019 began. I was in HEAVEN. The milkshake with a lil bourbon in it for dessert was my favorite and the ceviche starter was impeccable. The server was pleasant and knowledgeable as well!!
