Good argentinean steakhouse. I ordered the large sirloin, which was well priced for its size. Despite being 1.5 inch thick it was consistently cooked throughout. Decent ambience, not a bad place for a date night or catching up with friends.

We were a party of six that enjoyed Tango this past Saturday evening. We highly recommend making reservations-they fill fast. The poulenta appetizer was AMAZING! Three of us got the Pork Chop dinner. OMG!! Cooked to perfection. The pork chops were a double rib size so plenty of meatand thick. One of us got the steaks tips and that was... More

This is an Argentinian style steakhouse. It's very dark and intimate. The menu is filled with options for everyone but really their steaks shine! They also have a wonderful bar. This is not the place to go for a quick bite- this really is a true nice dinner out.

We were a party of six, looked for a good steakhouse with a reasonable prices. I were recommended the Tango and decided to give it a chance. We were glad we did! The food was delicious, the service was great and the live music was a nice addition to this enjoyable evening.

My review is brief. The steak was hard as a rock, the sweetbreads were rubbery, the dessert was poorly done and extremely sweet, the expresso was burnt. Do no try this restaurant, food is very expensive ($170 for 2 persons), and not good at all.

Visited Tango many years ago. Remembered its Argentine fare being really nice. This visit proved those memories accurate. Menu, quality, and service still top-notch. it's a real testament to a restaurant when those attributes survive the test of time. Our visit was nicely enhanced by the friendly attentiveness and beautiful smile of our server, Mary. Her explanations to our questions,... More

We didn't know that you needed a reservation(Friday, Saturdays a great idea) but we had gotten there early enough to get a seat in the dining room. Plenty of seats at the bar, with the same menu! Edison was our waiter and he was amazing! It was our first time her and he walked us through everything, even making suggestions... More

Food not so good, way overly priced, The reason it attracted us to go was agrentinaian cuisine, it didn 't turn out as our expectation. We were disappointed. Service was average, not exception. Location was convenient.

It's hard to call this place a steak house, but that’s essentially what it is. The menu is steak heavy but also has lots of interesting small plates. The food was good - our filets were carefully prepared. The apps were great — we tried the grilled avocado with cheese and ham. They have an incredible homemade chimichurri that’s really... More
