Lamb, steak entrees and sides were great. Various starters were all delicious. Argentine wine was excellent. Waiting staff was courteous and professional. This is the first time I tried a South American restaurant and overall experience was very positive.

Went with friends. Server was very curteous and also knowledgeable about menu and food, since this was our first time there. My only issue was that though some of us ordered the meat medium rare and others medium well done, we could see no difference with all cuts seemingly prepared medium well done. However all steaks were amazingly tender and... More

We were looking for a real steak house to celebrate a double wedding anniversary, ours as parents = 55 years and our daughter and SIL = 25 years and found Tango. Read the reviews, made the reservation, told the restaurant what the special occasion was and went along with a party of 5. Spent just a hair less than $300.... More

I attended a large group dinner at Tango and not only was the food wonderful (my steak was blue rare, just how I like it) the servers were attentive and friendly, and this makes all the difference in the world. My one minor complaint was the climate control; it was unreasonably warm. I don't know if this had to do... More

We selected Tango because of its location and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and ambience. Raves for the skirt steak, as well as the grilled salmon. Tasty sides came with the entrees. Large dessert was very shareable.

The Margaritas are so good that I remember them even when drunk from many glasses :-) Steaks are great too. With Argentinian music and traditional cuisines to chose from, it is a better alternative to any standard Mexican fare!

Our dinner here was nothing but 5 star. From the gentleman who welcomed us in making us feel like family to our knowledgable and friendly server Polo, it was truly a perfect dining experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and sexy , holding true to its name. Packing in many tables, I would recommend a reservation in advance on Saturday but... More

This felt something like an Argentinian Cheers. Great neighborhoody feel to it. You're seated by a very charming man, who could be your uncle! The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the decor was charming, the music wasn't overpowering and the noise level was OK. Everything about the restaurant was muy bueno!

I went here with a friend and we had an excellent meal. I went with the server's suggestions. The steak was perfectly cooked, and I love the chimichurri.
