As an Argentinean myself, I can safely say this is the best gourmet argentine cuisine in Los Angeles. Although it's a bit pricey, the meat cuts are top notch, with an impressive wine list and delicious desserts. I had some delicious dulce de leche, chocolate with walnuts dessert that was to die for! If you want to enjoy a truly... More

Excellent Argentinean restaurant, managed and personally served by the 2 brothers who are the owners. The menu gives you a great taste of Argentinean cuisine, and then some. The meat cuts and the appetizers are to die for. They even make their own dulce de leche and homemade ice cream. The Merengue tart desert is an amazing hommade Postre Balcarce... More

My wife had visited the place before and told me that she had the best steak ever. She was right! We had a 16 oz Prime skirt and a 12 oz Prime Ribeye Cap. The flavor is very rich in both of them. It is very difficult to decide which one is the best, but I would probably vote for... More

You will leave this place wondering why you even bother eating at less tasty restaurants. This is a steakhouse, so order steak. I ate with friends so we all had a chance to eat a little bit of one another's meal and the steaks were the best! The chimichurri ribeye ($52) cooked medium was by far the best. The pasta... More

We have visited Carlitos Gardel many times over the years, usually to satisfy a craving for a great steak dinner, and it never disappoints! This small, elegant, family-run restaurant is pricey but offers absolutely delicious steak, lamb and seafood dishes, very good-sized portions using quality meats, perfectly cooked to order. They have a select wine list. Desserts, which are mostly... More

This is an Argentinian steakhouse in Melrose Ave. We came for dinner and loved it! The atmosphere was pleasant, the service was very good and the food was absolutely delicious. We ordered tasty Empanadas, excellent steaks (Bife de Lomo a la Portabella and Entraña and very good pasta dishes (Ravioles de Porcini, Ñoquis de Papa). We are pleased to recommend!
