Reviewed 1 January 2016

On Christmas Day, we were told that in Puerto Madero restaurants would be open. I had read about Le Grill before, and fortunately for our group of 5, it opened for dinner at 7pm, and we were the first in. We were seated next to the window, with Calatrava's bridge just outside. Ariel was our server. We ordered two appetizers to share as well as our entrees before we were served the bread. It was varied, plentiful and delicious. A number of dipping sauces were provided along with a long slice of butter on a rectangular steel dish that sat on a wooden pedestal. If you are going to eat a lot of the bread, and want to try the desserts, you might want to pass up the appetizers. We had the empanada and fried goat cheese provoleta that we shared. For the main course, we had 1 ojo de bife, and 4 bife de lomos - cooked as ordered and all delicious. We had sides of mil hojas de papa and papines y r stica as well, since the meat dishes come alone. The lomo dish is about 300kg, a manageable amount. We could only manage to fit in one dessert, the chocolate y algarroba among all of us. After the entrees, Ariel brought us on the house a small sherbert as a palate cleanser.

The wine list looked to be quite large, with a wide spread of price ranges. Least expensive bottles were in the 230 peso range. We tried one of the Melbecs. We also had water and some Quilmes.

We had outstanding service and Ariel was quite helpful on all topics we quizzed him on. In fact, when the pork dish one ordered could not be offered with the crispy skin, he came back to ask if we wanted to change it, which we did. Note that cover charge is 40 pesos per person.

It was after 10PM but no reason for the bad service. Argentinians eat late... Though typical rude and bad service from waiters seem to be the norm everywhere you go.

Le Grill is located bu the Puerto Madero and Calatrava bridge, so good views guaranteed. Great and modern decor, nice bars and the meat is spectacular. I tried the 45-day aged cut and it indeed present some unique flavors i had never tried before.

Go for the meat, dont let the bad service keep you away because it is what youmwill get everywhere.

This one was on my top 5 list in BA. The sweetbreads melted in your mouth. The wine was perfectly paired with the meal. The sommelier was very knowledgable and the steak with side dishes superb !! Thumbs up!!!

At a choice location in Puerto Madero, with a great view of the old port area, this restaurant is an expensive but strong option for Argentine beef. Among the appetizers, the Mollejas were extremely tender and savory inside, nicely crisped on the outside (just a tad too salty a crust for my taste, but this happens often in Buenos Aires). The Provoleta was also outstanding. While the portions are enormous (by American standards, two can easily share a single main dish, particularly if accompanied by one of the large side dishes), but entrees were lackluster. Neither the recommended Ojo de Bife nor the Matambrito de Cerdo were particularly tender or flavorful (but the accompanying green salad had a most wonderful olive oil dressing). Desserts were great. Service is very attentive.
