Having been in Argentina for the past six months we were ready for something different, and Roux delivered with a variety of gourmet seafood options. While the appetizer portions were small, they were bursting with flavor and the main course, which in my case was...a grilled shrimp risotto was more than filling. The service could not have been better. As an aside, I looked at the meat dishes as they came out and they also looked perfect. If I have one suggestion, it is to replace the plastic water bottles with glass, as the clutter of the plastic bottles on tables detracts from the overall refined ambience.More

Californians visiting Buenos Aires were transported to France at our dinner here. From the amuse bouche to dessert the restaurant executed everything well.

I have been to Roux twice for lunch recently. On both visits, the service is absolutely impeccable, and they consistently perform to the highest level. Also, Chef Rebaudino always make a point to greet each guest, which is (to me) a very important gesture: it...makes clear the underlying purpose of this whole venture, that is, to connect individually with each and every one of his customers through a beautiful dining experience. In other words, he really cares - about his work and its impact on the recipients. Regarding the food, sometimes it is a top score 10/10 hit, but other times it is a miss. For example, regarding desserts: the figs dessert was a sensational experience, but the peach tart dessert was extremely disappointing and dull. Regarding starters: while the pumpkin tart was exquisite and gorgeous, the pumpkin & brie croquettas really needed some sort of sauce and were just too dry to eat alone. Regarding the main dishes: for example, the guitar-string pasta dish was excellent in its conception (creative, innovative), but the execution entirely failed - it just didn't work to mix the tuna tataki and squid rings into the pasta, but eating the dish in a 'layered' manner (i.e. the tuna tataki, and squid rings first, then the pasta below) left an entirely tasteless bottom layer of pasta, which just did absolutely nothing on the palate. (I didn't even bother to eat the pasta once I had tasted it.) I think this dish really needed 'critical back-ending' - even the strongest concept (the 'front-end') can fail in execution and you need to have someone to test if it works from the 'back-end' - i.e. a diner's palate. And this dish just doesn't work at all. I think there is lots of potential to re-work something like this. (Oh, by the way, the bread basket is absolutely fabulous - perhaps the best that I've come across of the Michelin restaurants in BsAs.) Anyway, I will be back because I really like the team and what they are aiming at.More

We had one of the best meals of our honeymoon in Argentina at Roux. The dinner was the perfect mix of warm ambiance, thoughtful service, and spectacular food. Our server was incredibly attentive, unpretentious, and made our meal feel like the most celebratory occasion. We...tried a couple of the appetizers, a pasta, the fish of the day, and were surprised by a dessert at the end. One of our favourites was the scallop ceviche, which had such a balanced acidity and richness, with fantastic texture. We also loved the delicacy of the sea bass and the comforting flavours of the ravioli. There were so many intentional elements of the meal that made it special - the small tasters to start, candied orange with our coffee and tea, and waiters who were patient with our nonexistent Spanish. Highly recommended!More

Ended up going 3 times because I enjoyed it so much. Small menu with a very well varied selection of dishes to suit all tastes. Excellent service, although on my final visit I was left for 40 minutes after finishing my main course whilst other...tables got the service. The maitre d' apologised and said it was because it was a "special day" for them but didn't explain any further. Then the waiter nearly messed up my bill payment by putting on 35000 pesos instead of 53000 pesos. Fortunately we both saw it in time. A meal here, with good wine, would probably cost 2-3 times more in a similar restaurant in Europe. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g312741-d7075694-r945714491-Roux-Buenos_Aires_Capital_Federal_District.html#More

We had dinner at Roux twice. The first time we ordered only appetizers (5) and sat outside. The second time we ordered a two appetizers and two entrees and ate inside. Both times the service and food were top notch. The appetizers were always fresh...and had a wonderful mix of flavors. The entrees (fish of the day and quail) were outstanding. The quail sat on a wonderful pastry cup filled with sweet red peppers additional parts of the quail. Both evenings we had white wine. The bottles recommended were never the most expensive but were delicious and paired well with what we ordered. I can’t say enough good things about the service and food.More

Well from the moment you sit down you will not regret the experience at this restaurant. I think they had the welcome sparkling or Still Water within seconds and staff was quick to attend to any need that you might have. There was a fleet...of other waiters, and they worked as a true team. We did not realize they were a Michelin restaurant before arrival. My husband felt it was the best pork dish he ever had ! I enjoyed the venison also amazing the green salad it's also delicious with a light lemon dressing and my husband had the tomato salad which was out of this world. Again, all the food was amazing the service spectacular and lots of extras that were not expected like a glass of dessert wine and the appetizers which were free. Again, the wait stuff attend to every detail. We had a peach tart for dessert . Also the gifted dessert wine. This is a " do not miss situation". The restaurant is not that big. Don't forget to bring your cash tip because of the inflation credit cards you need to tip in cash and they're more deserving than the 10% which is standard. We thought the bill was very reasonable with two appetizers, 3 glasses of wine , 2 dinners and one dessert we paid around $105 dollers. Cheers!More

Gourmet food served at most reasonable prices considering what one gets. The service was outstanding from beginning to end. We asked for wine recommendations and felt the recommendation paired perfectly with our meals and was delicious. Complimentary starters and extra comp dessert tidbits were yummy...and fun. My green salad had such tasty and varied greens which made a delightful combination. My sea bass was divine, so very delicious, as were the desserts, as was everything in fact. A wonderful meal for a special occasion or for just an evening out. Highly, highly recommended.More

We saved Roux for our last night of a three week vacation in Argentina. We were excited based on all the great reviews and its recommendation on Eater. Our less than great experience started when the host appeared confused about our reservation, but chose to...seat us quietly. The tables are very close together and our table was against the front window and door. We could hear the conversations of everyone around us. The gazpacho amuse bouche came quickly and a basket of lovely breads followed. From there we waited. No one took our order. After quite a long wait the waiter took our drink order and collected the menus. We had to explain we didn’t order yet. After another uncomfortably long wait our drinks were served. The waiter said he made the cocktails despite three staff standing behind the bar the entire time. Then he reconfirmed our order which he remembered incorrectly and entered it in the kitchen. We were in no hurry so it wasn’t a big deal. Our food was eventually served and the lamb ravioli and steak were well prepared. There was nothing to make the evening feel special. It felt to us like they hadn’t grown as a restaurant since they were listed as the best new restaurant in 2014, which was still displayed on the menu. The dishes are an odd mix of local, French and Spanish. We felt like un-invited guests at a party with few locals dining. We ate at so many great restaurants with excellent service while in Argentina and dined twice at one of our favorites. We would not return to Roux.More

Good question. The steak knives and their placeholders appeared a little over a year ago. It would be my guess that they were engraved just for use at the restaurant, unless they ordered way more than they needed.
