We had dinner outside which was perfect. They have a good menu and wine list, completed by great service. It's located in a area with other restaurants and bars. We had Surf and Turf - Filet Mignon, Rack of Lamb, House Sausage, Baby Octopus, Lobster and Mussels. It was excellent and was made for two people.

The first time I went to this restaurant, my husband and I immediately decided we would come back again before the end of our vacation. Three years later, I returned with a group of girlfriends and the food was just as good. Between the six of us, we tried the rib eye, lamb, boar and braised ribs. All of them... More

Food was good, particularly enjoyed the appetizers-the queso provoleta w/ shrimp and fresh herbs could have been a meal in itself. Service was just average and the atmosphere was not what I was used to in other Argentinan restaurants I've been. But overall a decent night of dining.

It's easy for me to say that the rib eye steak I recently had at UMMO's was excellent. It was cooked to perfection with just the right blend of spices. Unfortunately I couldn't say the same for the baked potato which was dry and appeared to be leftover from the day before. But I would return again just to order... More

We been there quite a few times and I had already reviewed this place. I decided to write once again because of the consistency of this restaurant. Their food is yummy! And the service is excellent, thanks to Auleen Parker for been so attentive and for taking a little time to give us some hints and places to check in... More

Went for a late dinner on New Years. Atmosphere nice. Had a private table in a cove of wine bottles. Homemade pasta was not as good as I thought it would be. But it might have been that the marinara sauce. Pesto sauce gnocchi was better. Everyone said meat platter was " pretty good." Everyone was nice. Waiter was indifferent... More

We went to Ummo based on the great trip advisor reviews and really enjoyed it. We did not need a reservation even though they are available on Open Table. We had a great little table tucked in a little wine room, felt like private dining! I had a small filet which was perfectly prepared and my husband had a ribeye... More

We were told good things and were not disappointed. Our family of four enjoys a skirt steak. There was a skirt steak for 4 (22oz) on the menu which was served after being cooked on a grill at your table. (Nice idea). We shared generous salads and enjoyed the chocolate lava cake dessert special. Our dinner plus cab fare ($30... More

Our family of 5 ate at Ummo and each had a delicious meal. We all ordered a different beef dish and chose a variety of sides. The beef was tender, tasty and well prepared. We also enjoyed our salads and shared a fabulous platter of grilled vegetables. There is a nice outdoor eating area, but be sure to make a... More
