The food was excellent. I had a steak that ranked with Morton's and other fine dining steak houses. My husband ordered Wild Boar, which he has never had and it was fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant. .

I have lived in this area for the past 9 months and have walked past this place probably 100 times. I'm so disappointed in myself for not stopping in sooner. This place was wonderful! I was so surprised with the atmosphere when we walked in. It had very nice, trendy feel. Service was very good. Great wine list! I ordered... More

Excellent service, food, and wine selections. Ate outside as it was a lovely night, but the inside also looked very nice. I would go back here for sure.

I had to wheel myself out of this place I ate so much. From the strawberry mojito to the Gourmet Parrillada (best thing ever) to the vanilla custard to wrap it up.. We were pleased every step of the way. The service was superb and we loved our server! Would highly recommend.

My wife and I had a very nice dinner here. I had a filet that was outstanding and my wife, who is not a big steak person, had the small skirt steak and she raved about it. That takes some doing. The wine list was very good and we shared a bottle of Argentinian Malbec for 38 or 39 bucks... More

We just ate here, at 5:30 on a Tuesday, there were no other diners when we first got there. I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio, it was ice ice cold and wonderful. My husband and I shared the beef filet empanadas appetizer, which were so good that my husband said he could just ordered them for his meal. They... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel check-in staff. Our waiter was so nice and recommended great drinks and meals. The bread was fresh and hot and served with fresh butter. My husband had the most tender beef filet ever and I had the stuffed grouper with shrimp. We also shared an Arugula Salad that was excellent and... More

I had the short ribs. They were well done when I had wanted medium. Still, it was quite tasty and my wife enjoyed her fish. The server was very inattentive and was hitting up some chick in the front section. We had to summon him a couple of times and I just did not get the feeling that he wanted... More

Skirt steak made just the way you ask for and desire. Service is very good and side dishes are excellent. Tables chairs and steak knives and all silverware really make this a fine steak house.

Ummo was only a block from the Marriott Stellaris where we were staying. We walked down for an early dinner. We were one of the first couples there and it was still a bit warm out so we decided to sit inside. We were seated toward the back of the restaurant...warning, it's COLD back there! They even have sweaters/blankets on... More
