Argentinean
Perfect For:
  • Good for a Date
  • Neighborhood Gem
  • Special Occasion
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!

I had the salmon, a little overcooked and chewy. My date had the steak tips and had to send them back. They were tough and had no taste. They should at least marinate them to tenderize them and give them some flavor.
We had the blood and regular sausage as an appetizer which was good, but I thought was expensive at $12. for two links. The diningroom tables were very close together, so it seemed as though you were dining with the people next to you. I don't mind paying for excellent prepared food, but this place was somewhat disappointing. I will say the lamb chops my date replaced the tough steak tips with were very good.
I had to sit and eat my meal and then wait for my date to eat. Not a very enjoyable time dining out for over $100.00.
I wouldn't rush to get back here to dine.

Great food and the staff was excellent! I got the sirloin steak, tango fries, and medley of vegetables. I ate everything on my plate, plus the lovely glasses of pinot noir that complemented my dinner. Went with a few friends and the atmosphere and food were perfection!

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!

We wanted to try something different and had heard good things about it. If you’re strictly going for the meat, it was great; the rest of the food was meh. Cute spot, but not one of our favorites.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
