I had one of the best steak dinners here in my life. Lovely romantic atmosphere, sat at bar and still cozy. Good drinks and excellent food.

I love Tango, but I can rarely eat there. They open at 5pm and even if you show up at 5pm if you order steak it takes almost an hour to get your food. I don't mind the wait since the meat is cooked per your order and it really is one of the best ones around but if you... More

The food is delicious. You must try the churrasco, the tango fries and the empanadas. The sauce they serve with the bread is amazing.

We recently went to dinner at Tango on a Sunday evening and had a really good meal with exceptional service . We live in Arlington and it was a treat to have a nice restaurant close by on a cold late winter night. The waiter was knowledgeable and helped us chose the wine , they have quite a selection. The...

Tango is a very nice Argentinian style steakhouse in the heart of Arlington Center. The prices are a bit on the high side for Arlington, but very moderate compared to restaurants of similar quality in Boston or Cambridge. There is public metered parking nearby. The food is very good, and similar to European Continental cuisine, with a certain flair from... More

I was looking for a restaurant that served steak (our daughter loves steak) but was a little different from your traditional steakhouse so we chose Tango. Nice decor, ample seating, good parking (about 2 mins walk) and good food. Good appetizers were Chorizo y Morcilla, Dátiles al Tocino (bacon wrapped dates) and Chuletitas de Cordero (lamp chops). My wife had... More

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night and really enjoyed the meal. The chimichurra sauce and the empanadas were amazing and everything came out piping hot. I have travelled to Argentina for business and this food was as good as the food I had there. They had an extensive wine selection (lots of fabulous Malbecs of course) and... More

The Boston area has many great features, but a surfeit of latin restaurants is not one of them. Our adventure lead to Arlington: on street parking, nice New England town which lo and behold is home to Tango, a bit of Argentina in the bleak cold. We went early, the restaurant, decorated in a charming, rustic style, slowly filled up.... More

Spending a couple of days on business in Boston, we were looking for a nice and quiet place to have a good meal after a long day of work. We've find a nice place, not too crowded, easy to access (park) with a warm welcome from the staff. We had some appetizers (mix of meat and veggie empanadas) and we... More
