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.

Upscale Argentine steakhouse in Houston. Great food, amazing malbecs, and live tango shows during dinner on weekend evenings.

Great location near the Galleria. Spacious parking without valet. Warm decor with a lot of energy in the air. Unique menu from start to finish but steak choices extraordinary. Even the selection of plates for each selection is unique. Excellent friendly and professional wait staff.Desserts and coffees bring a great evening to an end.

Being in Texas for the first time we were determined to have a big steak. Not as easy as it might sound and Houston seems to close up at dark (not sure where they all go). Anyway a random internet search suggested that Tango & Malbec is the 9th best restaurant in Houston AND it just happened to be right... More

Let me start by saying the décor is amazing. You walk through a heavy red velvet drape into a dimly lit dining room. The open fire concept allows you to look right into the kitchen area, and the tables are adorned with black and red linens, the room is filled with vintage looking street lamps, and there are plenty of...
