Diner Reviews
  • "I've been to Asado probably 10-12 times. I love that place, their wine selection is great. Probably my favorite restaurant."

  • "Not a good neighborhood and so so food make this an okay but not great place to eat. Slightly expensive for what you get."

  • "We had a fabulous dinner to celebrate a birthday. Food, service, everything was exceptional! Great cocktails and the ambiance was lovely. My only issue was that I was seated in a way to get the setting sun directly in my eyes - but an attentive server soon fixed that problem. Only complaint is that I wanted to ask a question and they don't answer their phone. I ended up going there in person to confirm my request would be OK."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We really looked forward to a new restaurant experience....Asado was a huge disappointment from the time we opened the door until we left. The noise level was overbearing, food was so-so and over-priced, service was good. Definately would not come back or recommend to anyone. This was a special birthday occasion, what a let-down."

  • "We had dinner here with our 13 YO daughter. We thoroughly enjoyed it but we don't recommend it for kids.It's just because the food is so different and not what kids would enjoy. She is a steak lover but did not care for the marinated one she ordered so she switched with my husband's which she liked better but still not as well as other stead she's eaten. I ordered the bass after reading several favorable reviews. I think this dish, as with many at Asado, is an acquired taste. My husband and I still enjoyed it and probably because it was so different. Our waiter selected my wine and my husband's beer.Both were great. We tried the spinach and kale salad. It was a little too oily, but otherwise delicious. The crème Brule was the best ever."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Came here to celebrate my birthday with family. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We got the 3 appatizer platter with empanadas, calimari and ceviche all of which were delicious. Everyone loved their steaks and the quinoa salad was one of the better meal salads I have tried at a restaurant. Overall great meal would come again."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The salmon was extremely dry, lentil beans a little under cooked. My wife through up after we got home, she said it was due to the ceasers salad."

  • "Had Asado recommended to me and it blew away even my high expectations. One bite of the corn was all it took. Great, great place."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Dining at Asado was wonderful and they superbly accomodated our need to rush off to a concert. Granted we were there at 5:15pm so dont' know if they could pull it off at peak hours but better not to have to rush off in under an hour. Our waitress recommended dishes that could be prepared quickly but the quality wasn't comprised one bit - the ceviche appetizer was delicious and the steak entree was melt in your mouth tender and spicey, and the mashed potatoes were flavorful and light. We will definitely be back when we can stay and really enjoy the place!"

  • "Great experience, well prepared food, could not ask for anything more."

  • "Everything about the experience was delightful. Great food awesome service. We will return."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The service was great! We ordered an appetizer and two salads and all of it was way too salty, not just for our taste but for anyone's taste. We couldn't eat them. We also had steak that was cooked perfectly and very tender but had a lot of pepper on it. We know that Argentinian food is peppery and we were able to eat the steak but only by scraping some of the pepper off of the meat. We will not return to Asado."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My husband and I had a delightful meal and will definitely come again. It is quite a popular spot and was busy even on a Monday night. All told our dinner took almost two hours - not sure if that is normal sine it was our first time. It was worth the wait though! GREAT FOOD! I have had a lot of creme brûlée in my day, and theirs was the very best I have ever had."

  • "We love the food here. We brought relatives from Las Vegas and they loved it! Said the food was fantastic."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Food was delicious, the steak was better than any other in all of pierce county, their appetizers were spot on and their drinks were so yummy! If you have the time in the day and would like a place to relax and enjoy tasty food and drinks and are ok with a $$ spending allowance during happy hour, or $$$ for a fancy dinner, I hands down recommend this place."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "The staff was friendly from the moment we walked in the door. It did not stop there... our waitress was friendly & knowledgeable and the food was excellent."

  • "My brother and I took our elderly father out for his birthday dinner. We had a great time. The food was outstanding and the service was nonobtrusive and helpful when needed. We had an excellent time and would come back again for more than just a special occasion."

  • "This is one of my favorite places to eat. The service is great and food is always great."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The scallops were amazing, and the steaks were cooked just right. My food, however, was drenched in salt and my husband's hardly had any. and even though we had a reservation and there were plenty of tables on the fringes of the restaurant, we were seated right in the middle of the restaurant where it was extremely loud. I've been there once before and it was much better. The waiter was great, though, and I'll give it one more shot, but I hope it was just a bad night and not a downhill slide."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Not much to look at from the outside. Spacious interior with cool decor. Restaurant is definitely loud. I had the mixta which was skewered steak, 2 shrimp and a chorizo sausage. All were very good. My wife had the sea bass and said it was excellent. She also had the pumpkin cake which she said was awesome. Will go back again. Dinner, drinks and dessert was $100 for 2 people. Service was friendly and attentive."

  • "My hubby enjoyed everything from the food to view the atomsphere, everything was great! Will be back soon"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was our first time and we LOVED it. The food was simply incredible, prices were reasonable and the staff was terrific. The only small complaint I might have is that they really pack folks in. We were there at 5:30pm and we fine, but even by 7:00pm the noise level was pretty high and the tables full and close to each other. I like a resturant that feels 'alive" and vibrant. Just need to know this would not be the place for a quiet getaway. :)"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Had dinner here with an associate who lives in the neighborhood. Will definitely come back in the future. Wonderful apps, entre AND dessert Good wine selection as well."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Special kale/spinach salad with goat cheese rolled in pistachios was the best salad I've ever had, I think. Wish I could eat that every day.Other highlights included the Chicken fettuccine and the banana churros (donuts). Only big misses were the too smoky asparagus and the too spicy calamari. We'll be back for sure!"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The food was very delicious and the dining room had a charming decor. The garage door wall opens to the street, which adds to its charm; however, I could barely hear a thing my wife was saying because the noise level was so loud. I will be back, maybe for lunch. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Our table wasn't ready when we arrived due to a miscommunication apparently regarding size of our party. We ordered drinks in bar & ended up waiting longer than we'd hoped for our seats. However, once we were seated the food (as always) was AMAZING & our waitress was pleasant. My husband & I frequent Asado but the others in our group had never been; they couldn't stop raving about the food, & thanking us for introducing them to this restaurant. It was disappointing to have made a reservation only to wait but overall it was nice evening. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We enjoy Asado's. We have eaten there many times and have always had excellent service and food. My wife's chicken was undercooked which was unfortunate. It would have been a real turn-off had we not eaten there before. We usually rate their food at 4 stars. The restaurant was kind enough to remove the meal from our bill. Having worked in the restaurant business these issues do sometimes occur."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We made a reservation and were seated right away. Our reservation was for 7pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was full and with everyone talking it was kinda loud. The seating is all open; no private booths. The food was good, lots of flavor. We only drank water and our cups were kept full. It's a little pricey but good for special occasions."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This was the second visit to Asado. The atmosphere was great however a tad loud, the wife and I had to lean into each other to converse. The wife had the PUERCO RELLENO which, according to her, was fantastically cooked. I had the COSTILLA DE LA CARNE medium rare; a bit small for the price but excellently prepared. Of course the Peruvian purple mashed: Well need I say more? Our sides were the grilled asparagus which could have been on the grill about a minute longer but overall very good; and our appetizer was your ASADO CAESAR salad with the manchego cheese, wow. I want to thank you for the fine dining experience. We will be back. PS: Hats off to Ben our waiter. Mighty fine job...mighty fine!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "The food tasted wonderful and the wines we had went with our meal superbly. I especially enjoyed the Argentinian Malbec, and the creme brulee dessert was great way to top off the meal. The service was very good as well. I was pleasantly surprised to have plenty of time to enjoy our appetizer before our entrees arrived. Anymore, I am tempted to not even order a dinner until I have completed my appetizer because of servers messing this up. That certainly did not happen here - Thank you!"

  • "Red meat and red wine. What more could you ask for. A great experience."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We tend to eat early which I am glad we did. There are any number of hard surfaces in this restaurant so when it started to get more crowded the noise volume went up. Had we gone later my husband who is hard of hearing would have had trouble. The food and drinks were excellent and the wait staff polite, knowledgeable and fun. They did mention that some of the dishes they sometimes run out of. Some of the dishes take a number of hours to prepare so such as lamb shanks so obviously there are only a set number. "

  • "Pricey. Urbanspoon gives Asado 3 dollar signs. It should be closer to 4. Food was good. Sea bass was a little "fishy"."
