Feels like a small, cozy upscale bar with a wonderful menu - not "bar food". Some local/organic options, nice salads, wraps & sandwiches plus full entrees. They offer both full and half size salads & sandwiches.

Have been here a few times and absolutely love the food, although it's a little on the pricey side. Last experience wasn't terrible, but could have been better. We were seated at a large table with extremely high chairs that were hard to move, and...More

Shockingly disappointed in the service at Buenos Aires cafe. The hostess took an inordinate amount of time to seat us and I was with my mother in law in a wheel chair. We finally did get a table (they weren't busy) but it literally took...More

Not a good experience. Service was indifferent, ordered appetizer never appeared and food when it arrived was lukewarm. Lamb chop special was good but served without the accompanying chimichurri sauce. Price was ridiculously expensive for the quality.

Waitress forgot our water, forgot the appetizer and the main course was stone cold so we had to send it back to be heated. One couple shared an entree and the bill was still quite expensive. Banned.

There is nothing too special about this restaurant. The food tasted average and the service was sub par. The service was slow and the food was what you would expect. The prices were high for the size of the portions.

We arrived for a late lunch during happy hour, lucky for us...very good martini was $5. We selected a couple of appetizers: olives and empanadas (large selection, we had the spicy beef, chicken and spinach) to go with cocktails...all very good. The chimichurri sauce was...More

Been here a few times. Food is decent. It does depend on what you get. The sauce in the mussels is wonderful. The French fries are good as well. Service is usually good as well. I haven't been impressed with the deserts but I shouldn't...More

Outstanding empanadas and chimichurri sauce! Would definitely recommend. The restaurant is unique and I would return at the earliest opportunity.
