“Lovely meal: excellent steak, lovely staff, great value”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a recent trip to NYC, and were thoroughly impressed. The staff were friendly, humorous and knowledgeable, and the steaks were excellent (and huge!).

Being natively South African, and thus used to high quality meat, Buenos Aires didn't disappoint.

The "Chorizo" cut is a gargantuan slab of meat which was looked formidable when served but was beautifully cooked (rare) and well seasoned. Likewise for the T-bone: a sumptuous and very tender cut that was also perfectly cooked (again, rare!).

We had two sides – a salad and some fries – both very nice and well presented. The meal was washed down with a phenomenal Argentinian Malbec which the waiter helped us choose after a brief conversation about our wine tastes.

The meal was topped off with a dessert of Panqueque de Dulce de Leche which was completely over the top but absolutely delicious. I had to eat most of it as my partner had given up completely, but I did not complain!

All in all, a lovely evening out and would highly recommend.

“Excellent Steak”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Good service, we didn't book but got a table straight away on a sunday night. The fillet steak was really very good, best I've had in a long while, almost melt in the mouth. Very good Malbec at an affordable price, I would / will go back.

“Extraordinay wait staff, cuisine, and atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

An exceptional lingering 4 hr family gathering (with young children in the group) and our day was made even more perfect by a very accomodting and responsive wait staff, a diversified menu that played to everyone's taste, and a deft hand in the kitchen (both on and off the grill). Danny Meyer and Mario Batali listen here, sometimes 'less is more". Bravo, well done, a memorable gathering in an old and familar neighborhood for the entire family.

“High end beef, staff and restaurant...”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The Argentinian restaurant "Buenos Aires" was recommended to us by friends - and we were definitely not dissapointed. Very attentative and serviceminded waiters all the way through. Good variety in the menu - super ribeye - an excellent evening in town. Lively and entertaining neighbourhood in East Village. Go there and try it out!
