Ushuaia Argentinean Steakhouse
UshuaiaNice place with a great menu. Service was great. I will dine here again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVisited for first time onVisited for first time on a Saturday night at 715 and was impressed with every step of the experience. Seated and greeted quickly with space on both sides of the table. Great specials and simple entrees. Bread and chimichuri was a nice starter. Was unsure of Empanada special so waiter without prompting suggested to split it into one special (bacon and corn) and one on the menu (spinach) - both were really terrific and fast and I wish I had two of the corn. Skirt steak and Malbec reduction hanger steak were fantastic - perfect medium rare and plenty of sauce for flavor and none needed to overcome overcooked or tough meet. Very large portions but more importantly - perfectly cooked and promptly served. There are plenty of non-meat choices.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAn unexpected gem!I had visited Argentina during the summer and decided to search for a restaurant that served Argentinian food. I remember driving by Ushaia before and making a mental note to try it out one day. I had read the reviews about their empanadas...hands down, absolutely rich with flavor (we ordered the spinach & ricotta and the lamb & porcini). As for entrees, we shared the seafood paella and was stunned by how fresh and succulent the shrimp, clams, and mussels were! My only thought was to add extra scallops next time or to add some sausage into it (more of a Spanish flair). We also ordered the skirt steak (a rarer medium rare: rare+) with grilled veg. The steak was hands down better than my experience in Argentina! Will definitely be returning!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinner with friends familyExcellent steaks with interesting sauces, olive oil and herb based, not heavy.
Best empanadas I have ever tasted.1/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
