Perfect For:

  • Neighborhood Gem
If there is a single food that can represent Argentina, it is beef. The rich grassland plains, the pampas, rest in the shadows of the Andes and feed the people not only their wheat and corn, but also the grazing land for the cattle and sheep. Argentine beef is highly prized for its flavor and tenderness. It is our wish that at Tango you will experience a bit of Argentina and enjoy this authentic and unique cuisine. Buen Provecho!

The food and service were great, but parking was a nightmare. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone, but I would also tell them to arrive early to find a parking spot.

We had a wonderful meal here, but unfortunately we had to deal with some rude diners behind us. The staff did as much as they could for us, apologizing for the rude diners. Other than that, we really enjoyed our meal. Super friendly staff and great meal.

The service was very good, but food disappointing. Big portions of unremarkable food. We had the lamp chops and the steak, with sides of mixed greens and puréed butternut squash. As with much restaurant food today, the sides were overly sweet which we assume is from added sugar or another form of sweetener. We miss a time when vegetables were prepared in a way to enhance their natural savory or sweet character without the candied flavoring. The meats were ok, but nothing special; even simply grilled meat can appeal more if especially tender or juicy. These were merely acceptable, which given the price, is not enough. We would also like to see the bar offer more options for diners who would like an evening without alcohol, or less of it. Thanks.

I've been to Tango several times for dinner; which is always great but sometimes, I might not want to have a whole meal. Their Sunday-Thursday $5 Appetizer special is just terrific, especially when coupled with a great bottle of wine. The wine selection has been well curated with many price points. The bartender is also very knowledgeable about the wines and the food and is especially gracious. If you're lucky, you'll drop in when Edison is working! He just made the evening! Especially good: lamb chop app, meatballs, chicken skewers, and the flan.

Disappointing milanesas (greasy), OK steak, great empanadas and morcilla/chorizo.
But balance doesn't justify a return.

Good argentinian food, but not excellent. Only the beef empanadas stood out as very good. The entraña was ok, the canelones were bland, the steamed side vegetables were tasteless (no seasoning at all), and the dulce de leche was watery. I would not pay this much money for this food again. But the service was excellent, and our waitress was great!

This was my 3rd time at Tango. The first time was really lovely and sold us. The second time we had mediocre sweetbreads, but still consistently good steak. This final time, things started to slip away even a little more. The restaurant was WAYY louder than we ever remember it being before. The table next to us was literally screaming to hear each other which did not make it a romantic evening for us. We asked our waitress for a wine recommendation and she pretty much said nothing on their menu was dry/full bodied we asked for (which is shocking because we love South American wines). The appetizers were mediocre and not Argentinian. The steak won the show again (the sides were also mediocre including truffle chips that were soggy and not crisp!). I will say the value for the steak was great. Tango is super close to where we live, but I think it is likely off the list of places to attend, better to spend our money elsewhere.

Recommended by a friend who loves it there. 3 girl friends out for dinner before a show at the Regent Theater. Steak and Salmon along with the sides was delicious. Our server was awesome, friendly, and just wanted us to enjoy all that was served. Definitely on my go to again list!

Our family had a lovely evening. We all ordered some form or steak or beef (their specialty) and enjoyed it. Everything was tasty--they did some interesting things with herbs on the vegetables. Dessert was good too. And the service was top-notch, with the waiter very attentive.

Having lived in Argentina, this is one of the few (if only) place in the Boston Area that has a typical Argentine menu. The service is great, they go out of their way, to make sure you have a positive experience every time I have been there. Great selection of Argentina wines and a good bar makes this place a favorite for my family.

Usually a solid place for folks who want a meat experience that has some flavor. Group of 6 on Sunday night. 3 at our table ordered the Entrana steak which we have all had before. It was less evenly cooked to medium rare and a tougher cut than we all had, but still good. Service struggled several times to get some food and drinks to the table in a timely manner and with the other's orders. Could be Sunday isn't the time to go. We will continue to go on more popular evenings.

Even better than last time. The steaks were very flavorful, while the temperature was not spot on, the seasoning, and service more than made up for it. A great steak option with South America flavors ( chimichurri and pure porteño were great).
