    Get the octopus and empanadas to start and then share the steak! Absolutely divine. Happy hour drinks are also a steal - $6 strong cocktails!

    The churrasco alone is worth the visit. Add in half-price wines for happy hour and grab a seat in the small backyard garden and you're in for a wonderful treat.

    The Flank Steak with Chimichurri is excellent, as is the Chivito Completo sandwich, which is layered with filet mignon, bacon, olives, onions, a fried egg, and aoili. Cash only!

    My husband had the famous sandwich which was filet, bacon, cheese, ham on a light fluffy role with amazing fries & aioli. The chicken liver pate was spot on- smooth creamy savory deliciousness!

    Came at the tail end of Sunday brunch. Great service, food, drinks and value. Happy hour deals are good. Mate infused vodka drink was awesome. Can't wait to go back.

    So dark in the patio had to use phones to read menu! Beef was a bit chewy but flavorful & cooked to perfection. . I would definitely go back. Incident at a table caused a 'stir' fun story to tell now

    Mussles & the empanadas were finger licking good! They have a special sauce that has a good kick too. Their layered cookie dessert is awesome too! :) But bring cash bc they dont like plastic! Lol

    Unusual cuisine with a familiar taste of Italian and Spanish influences in a charming, carefully curated decor with a rather reasonable price tags ... a gem.

    Uruguayan sausage is a must at this cute and cost neighborhood restaurant. Loved the decor that takes you right back to Montevideo.

    The chivito complete is a MUST try at Tabare. The drinks are on point. Pricey, but worth it. Been here a handful of times and it's always an amazing experience.

    Muscles, house made gnocchi & ravioli, octopus casserole, flan ALL SO good! Skirt steak: cooked well but a bit bland (blue cheese topped baked potato that came with = YUM). Go with a Uruguayan wine.

    The whole fish was very good. Come during happy hour with a date and get a bottle of wine for half off.

    The empanadas really are the bomb diggity, but the entrees were so damn oily. If you don't wanna stare at your date in the dark, ask for a table in the back garden.

    I can't even deal with how good this place is. Get empanadas to start, particularly the caramelized onions one. I will be craving the steak sandwich for days.

    You MUST have the manjar del cielo (dulce de leche flan) and don't forget to try some Uruguayan wine too (we had the Tempranillo and it was very good)

    We tried to be adventurous with the blood sausage but unless you're a huge fan, it's not worth it. Everything else was delicious!

    This place is CASH ONLY. I didn't see it written anywhere on the menu or in the restaurant so a bit of an unpleasant surprise at the end. The bodega across the street charged $1.75 to take out cash.
