We came here with friends (4 of us total), two of us had steak, a pasta and a vegan meal. All the food was wonderful and we had 2 really good bottles of wine. Our service was great, she was very knowledgeable on the wine offerings and was very helpful with the food menu options. We will definitely be going back soon.

Wanted to try Asado after a friend recommended. Dimly lit restaurant and pretty crowded, but got seated with our reservation quickly. Water and bread brought over immediately to us. Waitress was quick and attentive. We ordered a few beers (limited tap selection). Ordered chorizo crab cakes, they weren’t the norm. Had good flavor and spice along with the aioli drizzle. I ordered the pork belly plate, my husband chose the 12 oz tenderloin ($49).
They arrived and I found my pork belly to be a bit on the dry side, I also found a small piece of hair in the food. I was pretty turned off by that, but hey, it happens. My husband asked for blue rare, i assume it was cooked to the standard they allow. But nothing over the top for such pricey food. Desserts chosen were a peppermint creme brulee, we weren’t fans. The other was a soufflé chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, now this was AMAZING. Overall the wait staff did a superb job, but the food just didn’t stack up. Total bill with tip was $158, that includes 3 beers. One time there is enough for us.

I ordered the chicken picata and it was the furthest thing from that I have ever had. There was no creamy lemon/wine/butter/caper sauce, and the chicken breast was pastey and flavorless. Although the waiter said it was cooked in all these things I couldn't detect one flavor of any of it. The asparagus was woody and stringy. Clearly I didn't eat but a couple bites but no one seemed to notice.
The wine was good. I had the calamari for an appetizer which was tasty but not crispy like it should be, instead, was floppy and a bit soggy.
All in all I was super dissapointed in meal.

Enjoyed a very nice dinner for three friends on a Monday evening. Conversation was easy (not always the case here) and the food was excellent. We all had beef, each prepared differently. I look forward to returning on another week night when the ambiance is pleasant. The food and service are outstanding.

My friends and I have dined at Asado dozens of times in the last few years and have never been disappointed. Their quality of steaks is on par with the fancier steak houses in Tacoma/Seattle for half the cost. 10/10 would recommend

We returned to Asado after having a stellar first experience. This date? Not so much. Had a reservation. We waited more than 20 minutes to be seated. I know...popular place...unavoidable. It should be noted that one might wait for your pre-reserved table...a problem with new booking system. But that was all easy to overlook.

We ordered. We ate. Then our bill came.

It was off on 50% of the menu choices, okay in fairness, 2 of the 4 items. When I inquired to the hostess, she took it to the manager on duty to which we received this explanation, "I'm sorry. We discovered the mistake on the menu LAST NIGHT and overlooked changing the menu."

Uh, I'm sorry. So, you left a mistake on your menu that resulted in a customer being charged $32 instead of $25 and an entire business day later, at the end of an evening, you're still charging a different price than what's on the menu?

If you don't have a printer, the cost of a sharpy is far less than two customers who were incredibly put off by the dismissive attitude about that item. But that's not all. My wife and I ordered two sets of identical cocktails -- she had a Manhatten; me an Old Fashioned. We were not asked what bourbon to use so assumed the well choice. But when our bill arrived, not only were we overcharged for the $25 entree, but we were charged two different prices for two identical cocktails.

This was not about the finances of it. We just happened to look at the bill and catch the mistake. What it is about, however, is an ambiance of integrity and trust. Questions arose between us like "How many people ordered that dish and were charged incorrectly?" and "How many people didn't look that closely at their bill and it went unnoticed?"

Paired with the manager's indifference, once is too many for us. We won't be back. We won't recommend it. It's a shame because the food is fantastic and most of the wait staff and hostesses were kind, attentive, and unfortunately paid the cost of the manager's poor behavior.

We wanted to try a new (to us) restaurant. The place is small, tables are packed in there, it is rather loud ~ we were ok with that. Had the crab cakes for a starter-these were tasty. I️ had the lamb shank, this dish made me decide to probably not come again. It wasn’t cooked long enough to be a pricey piece of meat/dish. Forgot what my husband had, it had pork, he liked what he ordered. Service was great.

We came on Halloween, a night where I would expect restaurants to be prepared to be busy. We were seated in a great seat - good. However, it took awhile (10 minutes) before we saw the waiter, then it took nearly 30 minutes to get our appetizers, followed by another 45 minutes to get our food. Appetizers were good (shrimp A+) but my steak was tough - not good. My wife's salad was good (A). The waiter's excuse for why it took so long to get our food were the demands of a big table right next to us - not a good excuse for such a good restaurant, which should be prepared for this. This is the 5th time we have eaten here - before things were great, this time was very disappointing!

Loved the valet parking! The service was top notch and food was amazing! The only downfall was the nose level was unbearable! It was incredibly crowded and our table was scrunched in. If it wasn't for the amazing food and service (which is definatly fine dining grade) I probably wouldn't consider this again. I couldn't hear my server let alone my husband sitting straight across from me.

We had a reservation for 7:45 pm. We were forgotten when we stood waiting in the bar area, which is where we were directed to stay. Did not enjoy any beverages at the bar because theu were slammed. Checked in with hostess at 8:15 after witnessing several other diners being seated. Hostess apologized for forgetting us. We then were seated right away. Noise level in the restaurant was super high. Service was terrible. Refills to our beverages, other then water, were never provided. It took an hour for a soda refill after stopping the server to request it. Then the food comes and the puerco relleno, that I have gotten numerous times, was super dry and overcooked. Just an overall terrible experience. We normally opt for dessert but when the time came we were done with the whole experience. As previously stated, we have dined at Asados on numerous occasions and have always had a wonderful time. Great food and service.

Asado has a warmth about it as soon as you're seated. It is loud because the entire layout is very open but that is the only and I mean only slight negative about the restaurant. This is a place to go if you love steak, Argentinian cuisine or refreshing cocktails. Make a reservation when you do visit and plan to spend about 2 hours eating. If you do it the right way you will have drinks, appetizers, main meals and Desert, non of which should be skipped. I give Asado a 9/10 the only slight against them is the noise level, it can be too loud at times but oh well.

It was my birthday. We took good friend/neighbors who had never dined there. 2 of the 4 steaks had to be sent back and the replacements were better but not what we used to get at Asado. Disappointed.
They gave us each free dessert but still disappointment. We were a bit embarrassed as we had raved about the food.
