  • "Service was stellar with great communication and attentiveness (friendly but not intrusive). The food was fantastic! Make sure you save room for the crepe dessert."

  • "The menu had something for everyone in our party of 8!! The strip steaks were outstanding and the filet of sole was delicious. The veggies accompanying the entrees were cooked perfectly and the variety was amazing. The French fries were the best ever!!! Portions were generous enough to share. Service could have been a bit more efficient as there were only 2 other tables occupied at the time. Bus boys did not know where to place the food. Dressings on the side had to be asked for a second time. But, we will all return."

  • "I've been to Ushuaia a few times now, bringing different people along each time and have had a 5 star experience each time. Great service and incredible food. The price point is a little high for a casual night now, so we reserve this spot for special occasions! Can't wait for the next time!"

  • "We enjoyed a really good (not too sweet) house made sangria, and our server suggested a salad to share for 3 of us (instead of one salad per person which was more than we wanted). Skirt steak was flavorful, as was the paella and the salmon was also quite good. With friendly service and good food, this was a very enjoyable evening out."

  • "Good service, great food, a definite return to this restaurant"

  • "The food is incredible. Not only is it unique but also presented in a extremely attractive way. The restaurant is expensive but worth every penny. The service is also incredible."

  • "We tried it for the first time & were really impressed, the food is great, the servers attentive without smothering you. We made reservations at 6:30 for 7pm on a Saturday without problem. We were seated immediately upon arrival, it was full but not packed. By the time we finished dinner it was at capacity and the tables are pretty close to each other. Any possibility for conversation was lost, just too loud, so go before 6pm to avoid the noise. We split a salad to start and it was more than plenty for us. I had Flat Iron Steak (Churassco al Malbec) based on reviews and they were right, it was delicious, very well prepared. My date had the salmon and was very impressed. The crepes for dessert were yummy! I say 2 thumbs up!"

  • "Hadn't been here to over a year - last experience was Valentine's Day 2013 - not a great experience. Had out of town visitors and decided to try it again and glad we did. The food was outstanding, the service great and the corkage reasonable. Definitely glad for the return visit and will be back again soon."

  • "I Highly recommend Ushuaia, the food was excellent, steaks made to perfection, and the food presentation was fabulous. Our server Amy was wonderful and attentive, we would definitely return. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food is great but the service does not match this quality. We found on their web site about the happy hour, with tapas till 6.30; so we arrived early for dinner, wanting to enjoy tapas at our table. However, we were told that tapas were only served at the bar and there was no way to have them at our table. If we wanted to have tapas we had to move to the bar, after we were already seated. I found this not only hard to understand but also rude . There will not be a second visit to Ushuaia for us."

  • "food is good and best to order steaks not fish here"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Third time there and people are clearly finding out this is a good place to eat. After a rather slow start, the place was packed and the crowd was younger and more vibrant. They still could use a couple of different and more varied entres, but the place is happening."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was very good. I had the steak wrapped in butter which was excellent, and the creme brûlée was amazing as well. The restaurant was slow and therefore quiet, but the meal was great and service very good as well. Recommended!"
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "I was expecting a much better experience as I know argentine food very well. Although the service was good as were the empanadas and the dessert, the main meat dishes were very poor and flavorless. I would not recommend the restaurant."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Having actually been to Ushuaia, Argentina we discovered this local restaurant about a year ago. It's a steak house, and a good alternative to Pacific Dining Car nearby. My favorite on the menu is the skirt steak, which is heavenly (and probably the best in town). The atmosphere is delightful, and the service always excellent. The low ceiling with no drapes does add to the noise level. We have celebrated several birthdays at Ushuaia and find it a special treat."

  • "This is my second visit to this place- I love the food and brought a friend. The first time they were just opening and it was a bit empty decor wise- This time, I believe it's all there but one room, tables are too close for comfort and the large one, there's a cold feeling to it. So I suppose it wouldn't matter if you come here for your lunch hour or a dinner meeting instead of a night out. "
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "We could not understand why they would not serve the Tapas (small plates) in the main dining since the place is not big. We had reservations, but waited 30 minutes to be moved to the lounge area so that we could pick also have Tapas. The place was very noisy so we had a hard time hearing each other at our table. The food was very good and the service was good also. I was disappointed that they do not carry A-1 steak sauce."

  • "Great food, great service . I brought my wife here for our 5 year anniversary, she is Argentinian and she felt it was very authentic."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Food is divine and the service even better. Servers are so welcoming, helpful and attentitve it's a pleasure to be there. And the food is exquisite, beautifully cooked just as you ordered and bursting with flavor. The Argentine sauces are spectacular! Don't hesitate to go - you will be richly rewarded!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Steak! Steak! Steak! Absolutely delicious! Thanks for the excellent service as well :)"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "This was our 3rd time at Ushuaia and frankly, it was disappointing. Empanada appetizer was delish! New York steak, while it was cooked just as I ordered it, was gristly and had more fat than it should have. My husband had the Rib Eye and he was disappointed also. I think we'll take a break from Ushuaia for a while. It is expensive and while we knew that, this time it was expensive and disappointing! NOT a good combination!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Amazing steaks at a very fair price and cooked exactly to order (I ordered mine "medium rare plus" and it was spot on). Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I liked their side sauces, although they are a little bit too oily for me personally. The steaks are so good that you don't want to mask the flavor with a sauce anyways..."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I tried Ushuaia for the first time this weekend. Went there on a Sunday night, not very crowded. We had a couple of empanadas, a steak, and the paella. All the food was good, although I thought the paella was the weakest of our dishes. The steak was definitely the standout winner. Our waiter was great. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Overall, a very good experience."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We always like Ushuaia for their delicious steaks. It is a little noisy ."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Salad dressing was too oily and needed more sharpness. Lamb dish had hard boiled eggs in it which were not mentioned on the menu.My friend does not eat eggs!!! Also, that dish was very salty."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Just three old guys getting together to eat and catch up. New york strip, salmon and skirt steak were all outstanding. Same for salads and sides. Noise level low enough that you could talk and service that was prompt and friendly. And a pretty reasonable price, too. Not much more you can ask for."

  • "My dear friend told me about this place, my boyfriend comes to visit me one time a month and he is a total meat lover! So I thought to make it a perfect end to a great day to go and check this place out. It's so close to home I could walk, great service Amazing "steaks" even though I had the Lamb I did taste his steak. The empanda's are yummy too. I love my glass of Malbec the selection of the evening. And yes we even made room for desset the crepes off the chain goodnes. I will pass on my new find and will return again real soon! And check out your Happy Hour Tthank you for sure a great meal and romantic evening. Marie"

  • "Empanadas made an excellent start to dinner at Ushuaia. Disappointing and peculiar to be out of a signature dish -- NY strip -- for Sunday dinner. The prime rib served as a good substitute, but it was a substitute -- no getting around not having the star of the show. Desert proved too rich for my blood, but many a foodie would likely enjoy the interesting offerings. Yelp's four-star review seems accurate (but running out of NY strip seems questionable)."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The customer service was phenomenal. Ordered the Paella and it was alright. Not spectacular, but not horrible. Salad was nice and fresh. Friend ordered the steak, not complaints, Malbec reduction sauce and veggies served alongside were quite tasty. Customer service definitely is the buy in and would return again for another go around."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "When walking into the restaurant it looks amazing and as you look around at what others have ordered everything looks spectacular. Our waitress was sub par because we sat at the table for about 5 minutes after asking for water until we just asked a buser. The wait for the entree was about the worst I have seen at a $$$. There was honestly a 45 minute wait for our entree after the appetizer came. It was so bad I ordered coffee to keep my self awake. Once our food came my wife's fish was overcooked. The staff was nice and provided an alternative dish but it was more expensive and we had to pay the difference. It was disheartening to wait and then wait again. We had an 8pm reservation and we didn't give to leave until 10pm for two courses."

  • "Reserved for valentines day 4-6 weeks ahead based on the wife's love of chimcuri and sauces as they had some great reviews on this. But to arrive and find that they have a special menu and it is not on the menu, the table is stuck almost in a broom closet and is one that is in desperate repair and should not have been in service"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's. The service was superb, very attentive to all our needs. The food was delicious and it felt very filling without making me feel heavy or bloated. For me that's one of the signs of quality food. The Crepes for desert with fruit and ice cream were probably the best I've ever had. Great place to take a date. My girlfriend loved it! The ambience is very clean and quiet and the wine list is extensive with something for any person's taste. The prices are expensive, but reasonable. About $90 per person if you order two drinks. This is definitely a place I would go back to and I would recommend it to friends."

  • "I go often to Ushuaia (third time in Feb alone) and have never had a bad meal, until now. This was Valentine's Dinner and the management (should you grace them with that term) destroyed the dining experience. First, they changed the menu (without any notice - big negative) taking off the best items and those that remained they altered at least slightly, not for the better, and charged more (okay, this I can live with since it is a big night). The food came slowly, service was much worse than normal (come-on guys, you know how many people are coming and when, why is it so hard for you to staff??).. I asked for a specific item to be altered due to an allergy, and the cook did not bother to change. The owners should terminate the managers!"

  • "They know how to grill and the meat quality was superb."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Just a great steakhouse with excellent alternatives other than steak. Food is creative, salads and soups are good. Very good seafood nicely and gently prepared. Dessert was wonderful, too. Well worth consideration for a great date night spot, business dinner or birthday party. This was our third visit and we were never dissappointed."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Food and service outstanding and the best part, for lunch at least, is that it was quiet enough for 4 of us to visit comfortably - the most important quality we look for in a restaurant. It's rare to find it all - go to this great restaurant - you will be thrilled!"
