It was my 1st time at Asado during Tacoma’s Restaurant’s week. I figured I would stop in and eat something new. The food was delicious, definitely worth coming back. But the service was decent I don’t feel like my waiter was very engaged with me or the day. My water cup was empty for awhile and it took him awhile to ask me about the another cocktail. I don’t recall him ever asking how was the food, which was I think he was uninterested. But I will stop in again and eat delicious empanadas!

Every item is overpriced even though very tasty. The noise level is incredibly high, so much so, I couldn’t hear the person next to or across from me or the server. There were no gluten/dairy free desert options. This was our second visit hoping it would be a better experience than the first, but was even more disappointed. Will most likely not return.

My husband, adult son and I went to Asado for a celebratory dinner Friday night and had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend Asado for drinks, appetizers and a scrumptious dinner. Many thanks to our server for his suggestions and guidance. On top of helping us make tasty choices, he highlighted foods that were dairy-free to help me make my decisions. We enjoyed the lamb shank with butter beans, the combination plate with skirt steak, prawns and chorizo, and the flank steak. We are sure to return for a full dinner soon and my husband and I may go back sometime to make a light meal of the ceviche with plantains that we enjoyed Friday as an appetizer.
The atmosphere is very energetic and reservations on a Friday night are a must. We also appreciate that they have valet parking available for $5, although we lucked out and found parking on a side street.

We always enjoy Asado, but were sad to see that the previously admirable wine list had been reduced since our last visit. Understandable, but nonetheless a bummer. The current wine list is still quite good, if simplified. The dishes—calamari, octopus, salads, veggie relleno, wagyu special—were all well prepared, well served. My wagyu had a significant vein of fat that accounted for a good eighth of the portion, but the flavor was rich as expected.

This is a destination restaurant for sure. South American steaks and seafood. As good as el gaucho .... correction ... better. Love the smells, the steaks, and fresh fish. 4 people, 1 seabass, and top steaks.... and drinks.... $300. Would have been 600 at Goucho or met grill. As good or better food.

We had reservations for 2 and got crammed in a corner by a very hot fireplace. My shoulder was actually resting against it we were so close. We were told we could have it turned off but then the server left before we could take her up on it. Drinks took about 15-20 minutes. We ordered a steak and it didn't really taste like anything. Not a horrible experience but not whats expected for the price tag. Bummer.

Unexpected great find on Trip Advisor as we drove into town looking for a good late-night dining option. Not inexpensive but very well-prepared and flavorful food across the board. Ben provided extremely professional, well-informed, timely and friendly service. Very pleasant casual atmosphere. Will certainly return!

We loved the relaxed feel of Asado. We have put this on our list to return to try more dishes. The Wagyu short ribs and poblano polenta was amazing! Our waiter provided excellent service and made us feel at home. The desert topped the end of the night. Thank you. We will be back.

We took an out of town friend here, and Im so glad we did! The interior is cozy but the manage to make it feel that theres ample room. Lovely decorations inside. We had a very nice server, thank you Sarah! Very knowledgeable about the menu. Lucky for us they had just gotten in Kagoshima Wagyu. We ordered that and whst a treat! I can honestly say i have never had a steak that good. It was amazing! But everything we had was excellent. They have a plantain/bread pudding tupe of dessert that is frankly impossible to describe, all i can say is get it!! We will definately be back, i loved everything about this place!!

This was our 2nd time to Asado and we enjoyed a fabulous meal. The menu is creative with something for everyone. The food is well season and cooked to perfection. The meat on the short ribs was so tender, did ont need a knife to cut. We were celebrating my father's 79th birthday and when the waiter heard that he brought the dessert menu and told us his dessert was on the house. He ordered the donuts which came out hot out of the fryer, dipped in cinnamon sugar with two different dipping sauces. They were amazing! Will definitely return!

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We both ordered the beef short ribs (the server recommended them). The flavor was good but my cut of meat was so marbled with an excessive amount of fat that it made the texture mushy.

We are long time diners at Asado. Part of why we choose to go there for special occasions and to entertain is the consistent quality. Unfortunately this time we were very disappointed in our meal. Service etc was good but both my husband and I felt the food was very below par and for a $50 steak his was plain and did not come with all of the toppings it usually does. My stuffed chicken Serrano was not even stuffed at all and did not come with the glaze it normally does.
I’m sure we will try again but for a meal costing over $200.00 we expect excellence.
