I've eaten in this restaurant twice, both times with my Argentine friend Cecilia who confirmed that the food was very authenic. We both loved it. The meat is excellent!

we had brunch here today and i have to say that this is one of the worst places I have ever been too!! we came for brunch and my son had steak and eggs...the steak was hard as a rock!! just like horse meat maybe? my husband and I had the parilla mixed grill for two...the worst mixed grill i ever had!! the two sausages namely the blood sausage was yuck !! service was atrocious too considering there were only two other guests besides us.. i usually give fair reviews but this place just ruined my sunday and even my 8 year old son could not eat!

This is a welcome addition to a neighborhood filled with mediocre bars and burger joints. True, Cafe D'Alsace is across the street, but this place is more relaxing and fun and the food isn't as heavy. The best part was the drinks -- a menu of delicious variations on summer drinks. There's a giant jar of white sangria marinating on the bar counter and they have lots of mojito-like concotions. Really fun. Two of us had empanadas, and just a small order of two was very filling and tasty. We also split a large salad and a skirt steak and still had to take some of the steak home. Our waiter was from Brazil and the soundtrack was all South American. I wonder whether it gets noisy as the place fills up but during our early dinner the sound level was fine. Would definitely go back. The neighborhood needs more of this sort of place.

To my friends that rarely venture above of 14th Street, I say, bite it! (a delicious empanada, that is...) I enjoyed this restaurant very much. The food and mood were really nice. Worth every step north.

to those that dislike the empanadas is just because they don't know about good empanadas, they only know about oil.everything is great from the food to the service.to all you should go and try it out. you will realize that this is the best argentinian restaurant in the upper east side.

Great food. Great service. Wonderful atmosphere. If you are heading out to dinner on the Upper East Side, grab a table at Libertador, sip some wine, eat some really good food, and love your life.

This is one of the worst Argentine restaurants that I've been to in NYC. We started with empanadas which were mediocre at best but that ended up looking great in comparison with what followed. My wife ordered a milanesa and got a refried burnt paper-thin joke that tasted like old cheap oil, with a side of mashed potatoes that was neither mashed nor potatoes. I ordered a salad that was served with exactly half the greens and ingredientes promised in the menu. We then tried to order a dulce de leche dessert highlighted in their menu but were warned by the waiter that, in fact, it didn't have dulce de leche at all and that he couldn't offer a side of dulce de leche because the restaurant simply didn't have it. Yes, this is supposed to be an Argentine restaurant and they manage to completely screw up the simplest Argentine dish and to advertise but refuse to serve dulce de leche. Plus, their "selection" of (about five!) Argentine wines is just pathetic.
