5 Stars simply because its a gratuity free establishment.

All Jokes aside. This is a great place to take a date - although parking sucks and you'll have to look for street parking.

Dine LA menu for two (29.00 a person) + 2 drinks each = bill is 112 after tax and you don't tip!

Drinks AKA CÓCTELES - 10 - 13 Dollars

Appetizers -

1. Steak Tartare - My blistered tomato vinaigrette and house potatoe chips have never tasted so good! A Must get!

2. Chicken Liver Mousse - Toasted baguette with house pickled crudite. I could have lived without the pickled cucumbers and I preferred the tartare over the mouse. However; it was pretty damn good.

Entrees -

1. Choripan - housemade sausage patty, parsley slaw, and brioche bun. I wish the patty matched the bun size because we were left with more buns and no patty!

2. Asado - braised shortrib, sunchokes, chimichurri. A little dry for being braised, I felt like I should have gone with the fried chicken.

Dessert - Churros; that's right my first thought was the same. Churros...? Damn these must be some damn good churros and Barcito delivers! Barcito manages to drill a hole in the middle of the Churro and injected some sweet amazingness which landed the Churro on the dessert menu.

You'll be full after this tasting!

This is a nice spot in DTLA. Kind of quiet actually when I came for dinner on a weekend. Food is good. It's more like a tapas place than anything because the plates are small. I recommend coming as a group and sharing each plate. Don't expect to come and get filled because you won't. Prices are more on the higher end, so it's really more for the dining experience than anything. Good place for a date as well.

Barcito js an Argentina Reataurant that has unique policy of gratitude is included in the menu price.

Walking distance from LA Live. Simple and small menu. Their happy hour comes with compliment nuts, chips, and olive. I like their grilled octopus dish but they mess up in my third visit. Their dessert churros is the best churros I ever eaten.

Came here for a BID event for their launch of gratuity free menu.

We were treated to a small bowl of olives, nuts, and chips.
This used to be chocho chicken. It was not that great. No wonder it closed down. We ordered some drinks and it was not that great so we went to another bar for food and drinks.

Overall, I cannot recommend this place.

First time I try this Argentina restaurant and enjoy the food and atmosphere.

Service here is excellent and I recommend here. My favorite dish is pulpo aka fried octopus. Tips is included.

Interior was inviting and hip.

Was there on the first day of the launch of their new gratuity-included menu pricing. Diners no longer have to figure out the tip at the end of their meals at this eatery--prices on the menu includes the tip. I wonder what percentage it is.

This place has some of the best mixed drinks and tapas I've ever had at a bar. I can't remember any of their names but trust me when I say you need to try Barcito out.
