Seated 15 mins after our reservation time. Other than that, great.
As always Tango delivers wonderful food in a warm atmosphere with great service
Great food and drinks and service.
Tango is a friendly and enjoyable neighborhood restaurant. The menu features a wide variety of Argentine classics as well as "kitchen specials". My husband had the Tango Tips with Tango fries from the "specials" menu, while I had the pork tenderloin served with cherries. Both were excellent. Tango seems to be a favorite of couples as well as larger groups and families. Make sure you make a reservation. Tango is always quite full!
It was our first time at Tango and first time at an Argentine restaurant. We had salmon and lamb. Both were excellent and the lamb particularly succulent and expertly done. Our waiter was attentive, polite and helpful in making our food and dessert choices. The dulce con leche dessert was out of this world!
We will be back!
This is my favorite restaurant in Arlington!
It was excellent food and excellent service, highly recommended.
The food, atmosphere,cocktails, appetizers and desserts were wonderful.
Trying a new restaurant.
The grilled food here was excellent. The pork tenderloin with a cherry and wine reduction sauce was outstanding (Day's Special). The grilled sampler platter (PARRILLADA ARGENTINA) was amazing and 1 serving was enough for a second dinner. All the plates were generous and enough to have a second meal at home. The passion fruit mousse was both tangy and sweet, delicious. The app. Dátiles al Tocino: Dates wrapped in bacon, provolone were fabulous.
First time just trying something new
We had 7:15pm reservations for a party of 4 and were sat within a few minutes. However, by the time our appetizers came the waitress told us they had run out of filet mignons. My husband ordered the sirloin which was ordered rare and cooked to perfection but our friends medium rare was over cooked. They both raved about their baked potato! The fourth ordered salmon which he said was ok. Why one orders fish when they eat meat at a steak restaurant I will never understand!
The beef and chicken empanadas were excellent. Other than making you order 2 orders I can never understand why apps come in 3s when you will always have 4 or more in your party. Even cutting them in half someone always doesn't get an equal share.
My pork tenderloin was the best I have had. Moist and tender and the butternut squash and sweet potato puree was delicious. While I do prefer my vegetables on the crunchy side the zucchini in the vegetable medley could have been cooked much longer.
All in all we will definitely be back but our friends said they wouldn't.
Food was great! Portions better than ample size. Service was friendly, and informed. Atmosphere was energetic and friendly. I would definately recommend it for group get togethers. with friends. I will definately go back.
Had a great meal on Valentines day! Great service, great food. New wine suggested was very good also.
The restaurant was well recommended by friends. However, I was not impressed, nor was my date. Staff was excellent and friendly. However, we both agreed that the food was so-so. Because it was Valentine's day, the usual menu was not available. What was available was overpriced. I have had much better meals for less $ at other restaurants. I doubt I will return to this one, especially given that truly great restaurants are available in Boston and the Cape.
Excellent restaurant with great steaks. Good service
The service was very good. I had the lamb chops with squash/sweet potato puree and rice. I found the squash/sweet potato puree to be to sweet. Everything else was excellent.
My date had the pork chop and it was overcooked, dry, and tough. Everything else was good.
The sausage appetizer was just okay.
I would go back again.
Limited menu, but it is a chop house.
Based on previous reviews, we decided to meet at Tango since it was halfway between our two gigs, and there was an option for a dinner reservation as late as 10:30. We made it by 10:40, but the waitstaff was exceptionally pleasant with us as they made it clear we had to order pretty fast. We love the chimichurri sauce (soaked it up), which you can buy by the bottle also, and we both had steaks which were exceptional. As someone who rarely finishes his vegetables, I nevertheless ate all my mixed grilled veggies, and loved every bite. The caipirinhas also were terrific. We'll definitely be back.
This place has excellent food, great service and a really neat vibe and environment.
Great waiter and great food. Nice live music. Not too loud. We could have a nice conversation. The waiter took extra care to explain the menu and recommended steak and apps we really loved. I would definitely go back.
Tango is a great restaurant, and their response to my inquiry was very helpful. The fault in the end lay with OpenTable as a website, not with the restaurant. We look forward to dining here again!
Original: Be careful making reservations using OpenTable. The site doesn't know if the restaurant is actually open. We made a reservation for my wife's birthday, with a gift card that was given for this purpose of a birthday dinner, but they were closed, despite being well within their hours. There was no online notification of their closure, so we were rather upset, and had to re-plan our evening, which was a waste of time, and somewhat soured the gift of a birthday dinner. We hope that more care will be taken with irregular closures in the future. If you aren't open, don't let people make a reservation. It's really quite simple, and should be considered a fundamentally essential feature of this service. Period, end of conversation.
We have been to this restaurant before, and their food and service were great, and we were very excited to go again, and we still are! However, seeing as this review did not actually involve eating any food, my food ratings are based on past visits.
Good service the food is excellent the atmosphere is the best it’s just wowwww great to go with your family or friends
Also enjoy Tango. The steaks are amazing. I love the Baked Potato and Squash/Sweet Potato combo too. Nice list of cocktails. Wonderful service.
Always fabulous food and drink. Different items on menu.
Excellent service. Excellent food. Everything cam out quickly without overlapping the prior course. Our server was attentive without interfering with our meal. The Buenos Aires martini was very good. We enjoyed our meatballs, stuffed peppers and bacon wrapped pork sirloin. The malbec reduction was awesome.
This place as always excellent, food, ambient, service,New Years dinner with my family, we had a grate time, the bartender “Edison”always gives a warm welcome, Armando gets the perfect table, always a good experience, wine suggestions the best.
With no doubt, We will go again, and again. The Argentinian Churrasco , is the best.
First time at Tango. I went with a friend; we both enjoyed it immensely. We each started with a Pisco Sour, a traditional Argentinian drink and it was very well done. Good appetizers and an excellent strip steak. Not cheap but good value for what we got.
Amazing food, pricey, great service!
Beware - if you leave your kids home with a babysitter and expect a fancy meal in a good restaurant, in a romantic atmosphere- think twice. We were blessed with screaming infants in the restaurant and when the waiters came to get the table next to us ready by combining a few tables we said jokingly “as long as you don’t bring us more crying babies” we got scolded “what’s wrong with babies? I have babies at home! We are a family restaurant!“ and then a family with toddlers showed up. Yey!
We love kids, have kids, but when we go out to a “too fancy for kids” expensive restaurant, we would really love to enjoy it without screaming toddlers next to us.
Meat / grill is the reason why I went, and Tango did not disappoint!
The sides are less impressive than the meat, but they serve overall very good food.
And the service was excellent
Very good Argentine/American food in a pleasant and casual setting. Everyone was very welcoming from our arrival to departure. Steaks were superb and so reasonably priced. Try the stuffed dates for an appetizer and you won't be disappointed. This is our second visit and certainly not the last. Can't wait to return.
Service is great - staff very attentive. The quality of the food perhaps is not all there for a typical Gaucho Steak house. Chorizos and Morcillas .. did not taste quiet as good. The meat was ok. a bit greasy the chimichurri.
Everything was great , just a little noisy and loud difficult ebpven in a quiet corner to hear each other.
Consistently great food and excellent service. reasonably priced for nice steak meals.
Broght some friends from Italy because they wanted meat. Everything was good, especially the wine and steaks. Lively atmosphere and good service made for a good night.
Everything is great about this place. The food is amazing and the service is superb. I had a hard time finding true Argentinian restaurants in the New England area but I think I finally found one here. Came with my parents for a last dinner before they left the US and they were not dissapointed. Definitely coming back for more empanadas and meat!
This restaurant feels just like being in Argentina! The meat was outstanding. The mushroom crepes not so much. Very good service.
Absolutely loved Tango! Very cozy atmosphere with live Spanish music, very friendly and welcoming staff. The pork chop was amazingly juicy and tender and so full of flavor. I definitely recommend this place! Great for a group of friends or a date.
The food at Tango Restaurant was fantastic. It was for a mom's night out and my friend and I shared 4 appetizers and a dessert and all were well flavored and delicious. It's a bit of a loud ambiance, but everyone is very friendly and it's definitely kid-friendly.
We went a couple weeks ago too and the skirt steak was unbelievably good. Last week-end things were good, but the steak was just not what it was the first time. It was still good, except the steak tips were chewy (should have gotten the skirt steak again) but I wonder why it was so different/not as good. We were excited to bring a friend there because we'd raved about the steaks and we were all underwhelmed. We'd definitely try again because the service is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, the avocado appetizer amazingly good and we're sure we can recreate our first try again sometime soon!
Phenomenal food, service, and ambiance. The servers are super attentive and friendly.
