The food was absolutely amazing. Only reason why service is "good" instead of "outstanding" is because we did not experience a tour after requesting one. Otherwise Branca exceeded our expectations!

Branca was amazing, second time there and easily one of my favourite restaurants in the city. If only I could afford to come more often.

Regardless worth the price and you leave satisfied.

This is a wonderful place. The food was delicious. The octopus appetizer was perfection. Done just right so that it wasn’t rubber. Can’t go wrong with any of the meat choices. The sauces were a great compliment. The sides simple but tasty. The dessert was scrumptious. The dulce de lece in the crepe was a delight and the peaches in cream was to die for. Will definitely come back!

Came for New Year’s Eve dinner and the meal was incredible. It was a last minute decision to go and try Branca for the first time but it exceeded our expectations. Can’t wair to go back in the summer to try out the patio.

Overall it was a good experience. Most dishes were very tasty. We were recommended to have short ribs over the steak but it was very fatty. The chicken was very tasty but a bit on a dry side. We however enjoyed the appetizers and side dishes very much. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. The dessert was interesting but we could taste a bit too much of sesame seed oil or something similar in it.

Had an excellent birthday meal. The place is cosy and vibrant, the food fantastic, service warm and knowledgeable and they even made a special dulce dessert with a candle for us. Highly recommended.

I love this restaurant and we had a great time however i made a reservation for a special ocassion and a large portion of the menu items were sold out when we got there so i felt our options were limited and the person i brought had never been there before so i felt he wasnt able to get a proper first impression of what the restaurant offers and he was a bit dissapointed.

We really loved the food and atmosphere. Service was definitely top-notch. My one observation is that I was expecting to eat Argentine food and drink Argentine Malbec. They only had one Argentine wine on the Menu and in my humblemble opinion the food was more Italian / French than Argentine. The provoleta is supposed to be circular and relatively big. Instead we got a rectangular super small provoleta. Don't get me wrong, it tasted incredible, but that's not an Argentine provoleta. Similar experience with all the other dishes, they tried to make it friendly for Canadians but in their attempt, they created samething else not Argentine.

Had a great time. 3 of us shared one of the signature 48 oz. Tomahawk with three different sides and only one starter. Had no room for desert but it was worth it. Great service.

We wanted somewhere special to go because my partner was meeting with a cousin she hadn't seen in 20+ years. We chose Branca where we had been several times before on special occasions. The food didn't disappoint, it was incredible. The service was also great. We are so lucky to have Branca in our neighbourhood.
