    Si te querés sentir como en casa, éste es el lugar. Atendido por sus propios dueños, tanto las empanadas, como la carne, papas fritas provenzal y los postres son un delicatessen. Tienen una bodega de vinos increíble y la atención es perfecta, son sus propios dueños! Hay música en vivo.

    We had an amazing dinner for my husbands birthday. My husband loves a food rib eye and bread pudding so this was the perfect place to treat him! What we loved most about this place is the attention and hospitality. The owner himself was our server and took amazing care of us. Unique experience, will go back to try other menu items.

    This was our first time dining here with colleagues and we had a good time. Food: was amazing honestly. It was was definitely worth the money paid. Service: not amazing. Our waiter, which I don’t know his name because he never gave it to us, was cold. We weren’t done ordering our appetizers and he just walked away really quickly. Mind you, this was at 6:30, we were the second table to arrive at the patio so there shouldn’t be a reason to rush away. The chef did walk around the tables and he did come to ask us how our food was and thanked us for coming in, and I did like that. The ambience was really nice as we chose to sit on the patio but it did start to get a little cold and the 2 heaters they had above were not enough to reach our table. So maybe grab a sweater! Overall, I would go again to this place because the food was up there and that’s what matters to me really.

    The discomfort commenced from the moment we walked in. It was undeniably obvious we were assumed by staff that we should not be there, consequently we made the decision to not order wine or a meal. We ordered an appetizer and removed ourselves from the restaurant for air we could breath. Imagine not being stared down by patrons but by the service staff at what is referenced as a popular and highly rated restaurant- dissatisfied, disappointing.

    Max was our server last night, who happens to be a Sommelier. We ordered a Pinot which was fruity and light. We ordered one of the best Ceasar salad we had, Entrana with Chimichuri, Ravioles with Porcini and Pollo Romanoff. They were all delectable. We also met Carlito, who stopped by our table. Very pleasant guy. When it read time to order dessert,I had to hold back. Everything looks good and tempting. Max mentioned they were his mother's recipes, and his brother makes the ice cream. And yes,we ordered the one with banana ice cream, so so good with Americano coffee. Will definitely recommend.

    Phenomenal food and excellent service which went hand in hand from our greeting to us leaving realizing that this was not simply dinner rather a wonderful , awesome experience. They made you feel like you were part of the family, simply being pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable overall in the Their attention to detail was impeccable. The food was perfectly done to our desired temperatures, we started with the stuffed mushrooms, incredible flavor and a Cabernet based sauce which I dipped the papis fritas provenzal, super delicious. Then I shared the penne boloñesa (better than most Italian restaurants I have been to) and the 14 ounce ribeye, chimichurri sauce, medium rare done to perfection. They also have an extensive, outstanding wine selection. I asked for Pascual Toso Finca Pedregal, Barranacas, Maipu , Mendoza 2017 Cabernet, Malbec blend which was served at a perfect temperature and paired beautifully with out food. I would highly recommend Carlito’s Gardel Argentine steakhouse. You won’t want to wait to go back again, trust me, so many other choices of food to experience!!

    Steak practically melted as I chewed and it tasted like I was eating my first rib eye. The ambiance was casual and classy. It made me feel a bit like I was in NYC. As a family graduation celebration, it was perfect. We also stayed for 3 hours and felt pampered throughout. Thank you!

    The best steak in the city of Angels. One of my favorite places to dine. The staff is very professional and the food is 5 star. Do yourself a favor and go to Carlitos it feels like a mini-vacation to Buenos Aires with the best chimichurri as well!

    We went for my husband’s birthday. The sommelier remembered us (we’ve been going for special occasions for the last 7-10 years) and as always took special care to make the evening memorable. The suggested wine pairing was perfect! We absolutely adore Carlitos, the food is impeccable, service is outstanding and every time we are there we’re reminded we need to return more often!

    Quite possibly the best meal we've ever had. Unparalleled quality, creative dishes, inspiring presentation. All clearly prepared by the family with love and passion; and delivered with the hospitality and ambiance that somehow feels celebratory while also intimate. Gerard is the consummate host who truly understands that they're providing more than just Michelin-rated fare, they're creating a special experience-and priceless memories-that will stay with our family for years to come. We couldn't recommend CG any higher.

    An outstanding restaurant. From the call to confirm the reservation until the last bite of dessert, Carlitos was among the finest dining experiences I’ve had. The filet was cooked to perfection, the wine selection incredible, and the staff were out of this world. Next time we are in the area, we will certainly be returning.

    Overpriced and over salted! We saw the reviews and wanted to try this. The lasting impression was salt. Everything was over salted- we couldn’t finish the fries due to the high salt taste. 2 steaks, fries and a sauce =$275….Ouch

    The food here is very good. The waiter and server were very nice. The maitre d’ had an attitude. My wife and daughter placed their pocketbooks on the table. The place was not busy. The snotty maitre d’ walked over to our table and “suggested” (and I’m being kind) that we place them on the empty seat. He was clearly annoyed. If looks can kill, this guy was giving us the stare down. I didn’t create a scene, because we were hungry. This guy needs a Jersey attitude adjustment. Never going back. No thanks. Not after spending $500. Lose the attitude pal. You’re not that special.

    Food was good and the service and attention was excellent! The food was very overpriced!!!! The wine by the glass was over priced. The least expressive glass of red wine was $21 !!!! OUCH!!! It was good but not great and not for that price. The food was good but toooooo expensive!!! Again, the food was good but not excellent for the price they charge.
