Great Steaks Absolutely incredible dining experience. Buenos Aires Grill is one of those places in Seattle that flies under most peoples' radar. Some have heard of it, few have tried it. If you count yourself among this group, then you do not know what you are missing. We've visited Buenos Aires Grill on two occasions, and we were thoroughly impressed both times. Inside the restaurant, you fell like you are in a bar in Argentina -- sexy ambiance, excellent music, great smells from the grill, and tango dancers moving about on Friday and Saturday nights. You can't truly enjoy a great restaurant without a bottle of wine, so we consulted the list and ordered a bottle of Fourteen Hands Merlot, one of our favorites. Sadly, they were out of stock. Instead, the waiter offered a nice bottle of (more expensive) Malbec for the same price as the Merlot. The recommendation was a great match for our dinner. The menu is definitely focused on grilled meats, but there are range of salads and empanadas on offer. If you are a cheese fan, the Provoleta appetizer is a must order. A small wheel of provolone is placed in a clay crock, topped with herbs, a touch of chimichuri sauce, and broiled in the oven. It's served with focaccia and it is a hedonistic pleasure that is almost indescribable. For dinner, we had a 10 oz fillet Mignon that was one of the featured specials. As was the case on our last visit, the steak was ... divine. A caramelized and smoky exterior encased a warm pink center. The steak was joined by a colorful serving of roasted vegetables (squash, zucchini, carrots, peppers, mushrooms) and a delicious, light creamed spinach. The spinach hid tiny pieces of bacon (or possibly ham) that took it to a whole different level. Buenos Aires grill is an excellent alternative to stuffy traditional steakhouses, whose dark wood and velvet booths are great for 10th anniversary celebrations but may not be the best place for a special date.Was this review helpful?

The tango dancing on Friday and Saturday nights is interesting... technically, the place is fairly small with little room to move around, but the dancers manager. It's a nice 3-4 minute distraction from the meal, but not even close to great tango dancing (primarily due to the lack of space). Great place to go if you like meat and lots of it! Their porterhouse is my favourite. Although it's not close to being one of my favourite steak places, but the atmosphere is well worth it.Was this review helpful?
