Great Food - but too loud and snotty service

We love dining here but have decided to never go on a weekend again. delicious meals, to be sure. But we've waited for tables and had the seater ignore us and seat others before us. Wait staff is so-so, bus boys have been awesome. No issues on weekday visits, so we'll stick to those!

we had dinner here the other night and it was just great. We ordered the dinner for two and that was enough for 3 people. The atmosphere was very cool and hip, the staff were great. Our waiter was from Argentina. We also had the baked cheese and pepper appetizer, another good choice. I can't wait to go again.

I eat here every time I go to Chicago. The steaks are fantastic, the food is super authentic. It is BYOB so bring some malbec wine or beer to go with your food. And save room for dessert too.

This is the third or fourth time I've eaten here. Great ambiance, and the service was great, too. We started off with the empanadas, and I highly recommend them. They are a great way to stat off your meal. We followed it up with a couple of their steaks to share among the table. Very very tasty, well prepared, and... More

Nice atmosphere but definitely pretty noisy for conversation. BYOB a very nice feature. Loved the appetizers - empanadas, Eggplant parm. All of us had steaks - the petit filet mignon was the best of the meals but really huge portion. I had the Vesuvius steak - not as tender as it could have been. We all left over at least... More

We went here with a group of 11 women for a birthday. For large parties they take reservations. One car load was late which was bad because we were rushed through the entire meal. I disliked more than I liked at this restaurant. It was so dark!!! I mean you cannot see what you are eating dark. Several of us... More

This place is excellent. We live in Chicago half the year and have had lots of steaks. This was maybe the best we've ever had at an unheard of price. And included a salad and potato as well. Doesn't take reservations for small groups so go early or expect a wait. We went on a weeknight around 5:15 and got... More

Came here for dinner after solid recommendations online. It's a BYOB (there is a great Wine Shop down the street, "Que Syrah") which is great, but frankly, I found the food to be trading quantity for quality. I expect Argentinian steakhouse cuts to be somewhat fattier and juicier than normal steakhouse cuts, but these seemed too fatty and poorly cooked... More

My daughter has been singing the praises of Tango Sur for months now and wanted me to experience it. We were celebrating her upcoming wedding and decided to pay the restaurant a visit for lunch. Her bridesmaids and I had never been there before but since she was so excited to take us there, we all eagerly agreed. Our waiter,... More

Great dark, candle-lit place to get a terrific steak (go with the filet) located in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago's northside. If you're staying downtown, hop in a cab. Here are the key things to know in advance 1.) It's BYOB so be sure to pick up your bottles of booze before you get there - or run down to... More

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighborhood Profile
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
