“sophisticated cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

We stayed at the Fierro Hotel and enjoyed our dinner at its in-house restaurant. We ordered a la carte and were impressed by the creativity and preparation of the dishes. The wine we selected was the best malbec that we had during our week long stay in Buenos Aires.

The meat in the hamburger had a foul smell. Service was not friendly.

“Expectations did not meet reality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

After Reading all the great reviews i was really excited to have made a reservation and enjoy the dining experience. Unfortunately that was not the case. Im going to chalk it up to they were probably having a off nite. On the PLus side the Sommelier was great and definately knew his wines. The food was good not great. I definately know what they were shooting for but the food just seemed to miss the mark each time. The presentations were awesome but the taste was again just missing the mark. The reason I am giving it a 3 was due to the Complete lack of knowledege the servers had when asked what each course we were having and what was in it. We recieved a lot of blank looks or Oh sorry let me ask the Chef. I get the first time or even the second time but at some point they should have figured out we would ask each time. Its unfortunate and is something that should be addressed for the Front of the HOuse.

“Beyond Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

The sommelier at the Hernan Gipponi restaurant in the Fierro hotel organizes wine tastings on Thursday evenings. We were lucky enough to get a booking. This ended up being one of the highlights of our four days in Buenos Aires. Martin, the sommelier, had five wines for tasting- a sparkling, a Torrontes, a Chardonnay, a Malbec and a Pinot Noir with small plates of tapas on the table as well. His skillful presentation, love of Argentinian wines and generous pours ensured the night was a resounding success, exceeding all our expectations. Highly recommended.
