Rumbo Al Sur
Fit for Foodies who want to stay FiFit for Foodies who want to stay FIT! We were told that sharing is suggested ; we were four people and so we ordered 5 dinner dishes. We had just a taste of everything; like maybe a dice size piece of yellow-tail each! So, either don't come real hungry or be prepared to spend a lot of money! $9.00 desserts is sort of high but we got by with just 2 for the four of us.
Also, I think we would have enjoyed the ambiance in the main room with the windows more than the back room we were taken to. I did make a reservation several days in advance BTW. It was very quiet where we sat because there was no one else in that corner of the restaurant.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, fair serviceFood was very good. Mexican dishes prepared with more interesting ingredients and flair. Food came out hot and quickly -- more quickly than our drinks which we ordered first. Waitress seemed to forget about us for a time, and the last dish we ordered was delivered only after we asked for it. Still a nice spot in Glenview's restaurant row on Park Blvd. Good deals during the week and fair prices on margarita pitchers.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSomething NewIt was a nice change of pace. I loved my meal. The cocktail I had could have been better. This was our first time at this restaurant. We will go back again.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMargaritavilleBest drinks . Love the margaritas. My husband and I are local. We eat here a lot and we love it. I recommend taco Tuesdays. But all the food was wonderful any time I've been there. When you guys first opened I had heard the service wasn't so great and the food was just ok but I think that is long past. Drinks outstanding. Food excellent. Service great.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMlove this place......exceptionallove this place......exceptional in every way. staff is top notch as is the entire eating experience every time we visit.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMpretty goodOur meal at Rumbo was a little bit hit-or-miss. The margaritas (by the pitcher or glass) were excellent--strong and tart, the way they should be. We tried the crispy chicken (good), the scallops (amazing) with black-eyed pea fritters (so-so), the duck tamales (meat was stringy and a little tough), the guacamole (yum), and the beef empanadas (good). The margarita pie was the best part of the meal, a little like a key lime pie but with pretzel crust--great combination!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTiming is EverythingMy second time at Rumba and I was pleased again. There was a group of 6 nearby and they were really noisy, so, at times it was hard to talk, but before and after their noisiness, it was fine.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNice addition to the GlenviewNice addition to the Glenview area. I have not been for Happy Hour but understand that it is good. We shared several dishes and they were all execellent. Service is "OK". It was not very busy so the waiter was not around much (probably in the back talking). Otherwise I really enjoyed the restaurant.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent interesting cocktailsExcellent interesting cocktails and really good food, fun festive environment but not super noisy.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for a QueenTreat yourself to some of their special dinners. This restaurant is off the charts. Service is impeccable.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall plates of fine SouthSmall plates of fine South American food with a modern twist served in low lit rooms with warm earth tones. Cocktails were tasty, esp very fresh sangrita that accompanied the mezcal in El Gran Combo (which did not need the provided beer chaser, btw, it was so nice). Native Argentinian in our group was impressed with flavors and commented on nouveau presentation of classic dishes like Lomo Saltado. Bar was pleasantly humming at 7:30 but hushed by 9 which is good in Glenview neighborhood spot. Good for our business dinner, but would easily work for date night. We'll definitely be back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe constantly updated andThe constantly updated and refreshed menu is great. There's always something new to try here, and it keeps me and my wife coming back for more.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat individual service!Waiter was excellent! Super knowledgeable about the menu... as he could address and accomodate all my food allergies. Definitely going back!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWow. What a meal.If you like Tapas, this is a must try. The staff was "on the ball". We were greeted and seated quickly. Drinks came out in no time. Next thing you know, we were already working on our first 2 plates. I can't wait to return. There are still, so many plates I would love to try.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful andThe food was wonderful and the service was personal and attentive. There seemed to be an issue in the kitchen; the food did not arrive at the same time so the 3 of us ending up eating somewhat separately.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood restaurantGreat neighborhood restaurant with great latin american food. Good reasonable wine list.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMwe have never stopped lovingwe have never stopped loving A Cote, so when that team opened Rumbo, we had to try it.
