Description: While it's no secret that Argentine beef is worth flying around the world for, visitors to Buenos Aires don't always get the chance to experience an Argentine asado and it's many rituals and traditions. An asado is so much more than a piece of beef on a plate so skip the parrilla circuit and join us for a night of food, wine and sharing as we bring the best of Argentine traditions into an urban, closed door setting. Our 5 course dinner includes a picada (cheese and cold-cut platter), salad, "achuras" (grilled starters), a great steak and if you're able, some dessert. Additionally, each course is paired with a specifically selected Argentine boutique wine. But most importantly you will have a chance to learn what an asado is and feels like.

“Still buzzing from this experience!”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

I stumbled across 'Steaks by Luis' purely by chance and what luck it was! My husband and I attended on a night when there was only one other couple in attendance and we were treated like VIP's from the moment we arrived. The loft is stunning and the host Maggie and chef Luis were delightful. It was fun to really learn about what we were eating as well as enjoying the wonderful food. I won't ruin any surprises but this has to be a 'must-do' event in Buenos Aires!

“Excellent And Real”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

There's a lot of different places you can go to get asado in this city. Any expat that has lived here a while will tell you the best places usually aren't restaurants, but friends' houses. Steaks By Luis isn't like other asado restaurants because it feels much more like a real asado in your friend's big modern loft apartment. Luis is an expert at what he does and you get to watch him do it all in front of you. You can even help on the grill. This private asado dinner with wine was the best real asado I've ever had.

“excellent”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

My wife and I hosted a friend from the US and we were wondering where could we take him to eat great steak and also have a nice intimate dinner. We decided to go to Steak because we heard that it was an authentic Asado experience and we were curious to see what that meant. We were totally happy with the experience! Not only it was the best steak I ever ate, but it was also fun, we shared the table with other people that were travelling, we even participated at the grill! My friend was very happy and we were too! The wines and food were excellent as well as the service. 100% worth it!

“Just perfect and amazing food cooked by a great chef who is also a great guy!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We really had an amazing night: everything was delicious, picada (nibbles), parilla (BBQ) and wines!! It is the true parilla that the argentinans do according to the chef Luis who is a really nice guy, passionate by what is doing and we really liked it!
The service done by Maggie was great too!
I strongly recommend it!

“Awesome authentic asado!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

I've travelled throughout Argentina and partaken of asados at high-end restaurants, estancias and many venues in between. The 5 course meal prepared by Louis, combined with the fantastic wine pairings was the best meal I've had in Argentina. The atmosphere is great and the variations that Louis brings to some of the classic Argentine dishes is wonderful. And the steak! Que Rico!
