Phenomenal food and dining experience

This was my second visit and I appreciate this restaurant even more! I took my wife and daughter who are not fans of red meat. My wife had salmon and daughter had chicken and they loved their food. My father in law and I had the mixed grill of meats for two and the food was fantastic. The... read more

We stayed at the hotel just across the road and were delighted to find this restaurant. Coming from overseas, we feel that there are so many generic and chain "restaurants" in America and it's not always easy to find "real" freshly cooked food and good wine. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. There was a superb choice of cuts... More

Just returned from dinner and had to review!! While our dinner was very good (we had the salmon ravioli and Caesar salad) the service was so bad that we will probably never return. There are too many excellent choices in the Galleria area to settle.

I love Argentinian. Mash that with exotic game like ostrich or elk. They do it right here. Yes to the gnocchi. Yes to the Milanesa. Appetizers like the mango salad - check! No to American- styled deep fried Calamari. Here it's a rubbery flank steak. Inedible. The desserts are killah. Service impeccable. Tango dancers start at 8 Saturday. If you're... More

We've been to Tango and Malbec a number of times and it never disappoints. Waiters are very friendly, the ambience is stupendous, tango music and occasionally dancers are great and the food is delicious. They have a large selection of wines, malbecs being the best. Make sure you try the appetizers, they are to die for, including the argentine sausage,... More

We stopped by after work to avoid having to deal with late afternoon Galleria-area traffic. We were the first people in the dining room - quite a few in the bar/lounge area, and had a great time. Great service, very pleasant waiter. Very strong menu - fully covering the spectrum of the South American food it advertises and obviously specializes... More

We reserved dinner there the other night with some friends who were visiting and were disappointed with the food and service. The good points: - Nice ambience - Live tango dancers - Good location The bad points - Service was not good - we were only shown the different cuts of meat after we had already selected our dishes so...

This was my first visit to Tango & Malbec and I was very impressed. A great selection of steaks and different cuts of beef from across South America. The service was excellent and it has a nice atmosphere. The only negative is that the wines are overpriced compared to other similar restaurants. But overall I enjoyed the meal and experience...

Overall average experience. Was in Houston for a week and had better experiences elsewhere. The service was really slow, and although no complaints with the food - was just average.
