Very nice cozy restaurant and warm greeting. We were the first to arrive at 9:30pm. Our food was all very tasty but the entrees could have been more hot. I noticed throughout BA no one serves food on hot plates. It was all enjoyable, very relaxing and delicious. It was nice to have something besides all beef on a menu.

We had a wonderful dinner, the menu was excellent and the service was amazing. The tasting menu shows a lot of thought and was very well executed. I really appreciated that the chef came out to explain each course and loved that the restaurant is still small enough that we were being cooked a meal by the executive chef himself.... More

Was interesting to try as we are "steaked out". Sweetbreads were fried to a crisp, would have enjoyed a bit more delicateness, we had buratta which on its own with some good olive oil would have been amazing but this presentation was served up with mushy peas, Australia style! Good with a pie, not so good with amazing buratta, but... More

Thank you to all the previous reviewers for helping guide us to Mesa 542. After a few days of steak it was time to try something else and Mesa 524 was fantastic. Somehow the restaurant was absolutely empty despite other places nearby being packed. Our waitress was so kind and told us about how she was originally from Costa Rica... More

We went here based on proximity to our hotel and perhaps a little to much parilla. What a great place. The vibe is pleasant, low key with nice English language indie music playing. Wait staff are professional, attentive and helpful. The food is where this really earns the high rating. Everything was perfectly done. We went a little outside our... More

A small and intimate setting. Cuisine is excellent and a must for anyone seeking a break from all the parilla action in town. We had gnocchi with pork confit and spinach, paparadelle with mussels and green olives, seafood rice, porchetta sandwich, and lamb confit. The flavors are modern with Argentinian ingredients and twist. The gnocchi was as airy and delicious... More

This restaurant is absolutely amazing!!! We just happened across it but it is simply incredible. And not expensive! I had the gnocchi, which was the best I've ever had. My friends got sandwiches which looked amazing as well. We also got a brownie with passionfruit dessert which was equally amazing. Everything was amazing. The restaurant is adorable, and we had...

The restaurant was flawless. The hostesses were all polite, all the waiters greeted you as you walked in. The dining area was pretty small but every table had enough room such that you couldn't really listen to people's conversations at other tables. The starters and desserts were very gastronomic. Pretty intensely made. The flavor and quality was definitely there. But... More

We had lunch here and the food was lovely, healthy and well presented. The service however was slow and the portions small so we left feeling a little unsatisfied but the food was good.
