Libertador Parrilla Argentina
Posted by sad on 04/14/2011
I have gotten take-out several times. It's always "okay". But "okay" is just not worth the price or the time. This last time I got an assortment of appetizers, including the chorizo, morcilla, and sweetbreads. While the quality was fine, the chorizo was chewy, and none of it tasted like authentic parillada. I could have cooked it just as well in my frying pan. Argentinian barbeque should taste like it was on a grill, with charcoal. What a waste.

The steak at this place is pretty good but what I really enjoyed was the garlic fries! They are so good, very addicting. If you do decide to eat here, I would recommend that you try them out for yourself!

I am honestly SHOCKED by some of the negative reviews. My husband and I thought this place was amazing! I dropped my knife and before i had time to pick it up, the waiter was there with a new one! I got the seafood pasta and my husband got the skirt steak with mashed potatoes. Everything was beyond delicious. I loved this place and will definitely go back as well as recommend it to friends. Try it for yourself before you believe the negative reviews.

I really like this restaurant, the food was excellent specially their steak. The empanadas were also amazing. I noticed a lot of reviews complaining about service but my experience was a great one. I will definitely visit this restaurant again.

The food wasn't bad and the place is cute. Unfortunately I'm never setting foot in there again. It took 90 minutes for our food to come out and when we complained about the wait the manager yelled about it being our fault and threatened to call the police (after she asked us to move to another table so she could seat another party). The best part was that the owner was listening to the whole thing and he did nothing. Saturday is a big night out for us - and we've never had it ruined so completely. We tried to support a local place but from now on we'll go downtown.

I went to this placelast night and I have to say I really enjoyed it. our waitress was suer nice and really on point, she kept bringing glasses of ice for sangria(we got a pitcher) and pouring. I had the skirt steak with fries. YUMMY! My steak was cooked perfectly med rare-rare and those fries were like crack they were so good. I am not one to eat fries so much, butthey were so good andhad herbs de provence on them which made them so good. My date had lamb chops which were also really good and cooked nicely. There was some upbeat music playingand the place had a good vibe. All in all a good night out. I will def be back.

Despite the mixed reviews my wife and I decided to give this place a try (and brought some friends) as we both love Argentinean food and have spent quite a bit of time in that country in recent years. While they've lost a little bit in translation the steaks (we tried the skirt and the rib eye) and milanesa were both excellent as were the sides, special salad and the empanadas were good. The service wasn't attentive, and the sauces were a little lacking but all in all this a very nice addition to the UES dining scene. It's well worth a visit for one of the better steaks in the area.
