The ham & cheese empanadas come highly recommended. The menu does offer black sausage(blood sausage) and beef sweetbreads, I usually like to try foods associated with the cuture. HOWEVER, I chose the filet, that others had recommended. The serving size was very generous, served on spinach mashed potatoes. The steak was very tender and flavorful. My friend had the flank...

I recently visited this restaurant and found it to be a place I will not visit again. Although the food and service were good you are actually timed and asked to leave after your time is up. If I am paying out hundreds of dollars for food I don't think I should be told when to leave so that the... More

I got a steak here and it was great. Well cooked and seasoned. The service was good and everyone that was with me was pleased with their meal also.

We waited 2 hours to eat at this restaurant. It would have been that it was posted some where that this restaurant does not have a bar. BYOB

I had heard so many great things about this place, so I had to try it myself! The food was amazing and the waiter was great too! There was no line for 4 if us at 6:30 on a Sunday. The Filet was one of the most delicious things I have eaten in a long time! The only reason it... More

High quality food with good friendly service. Meats (steaks, sausages, ribs) tender, properly done and tasty. Salmon excellent but only 2 seafood entrees on menu. BYOB

We went as a group of 5 and were seated promptly. Service was superb as was the food. Although it is know for its steaks, I had a Lasagna which was incredible! If you want wine, make sure you bring your bottle.

The lights are low, almost completely dark, so you can admire the face of your dinner date(s) flickering in the orange glow of the candlelight each time a muscled Argentinian server wisps past your table. The club-like thumping bass through the speakers begins to ignite the red wine in your veins, sending a sensuous charge through your body. You feel... More

We stopped by Tango Sur for a post-movie snack. Parking in the area is tough, but we found a freebie 2 blocks north. Tango Sur is BYOB; there's a terrific wine shop a block south. Some patrons were braving the October wind by dining outside, but we headed in. The place is intimate, darkly inviting, candle-lit. High ceilings, brick walls,... More

The service is great! The place is candle lit only and packed. Order an appetizer and any suggestions from the waiter. Worth the drive if you are from downtown. Call ahead for a Reservation!!!!! Parking is challenging but free. Some are metered. You will come back again & again! I promise!!!
