    Most of their meat is free range and free of antibiotics. And also delicious.

    20% off on Fridays for teachers and nurses; reasonably priced, better than its sister restaurant, and it takes reservations

    Lomo, medium. Chimichurri. Death by juicy meat. That's what she said. Stop it.

    Ok, I want to love it. The ambience is so gorgeous. But overall the food is just ok(and a bit in the expensive side for what it us). One exception, the empanadas.

    It's good. Tues is half price wine. I'd go again- but not rushing. Try it. Chicken chimi was great. Steak a big chewy. But overall good. We ate outside which was nice at 75 degrees

    Service was very slow and their were not that many people there. Took forever to find our waiter Esteban. Tango Sur is much better!

    The food was just OK. Service wasn't the best. The El Filet was very vainy and kinda gross.

    Mojitoes and caipirinha are exceptional! The food was decent, but the service and wait between orders left A LOT to be desired. All in all, I would certainly give it another shot.

    Get the filet (it's actually 2 steaks) with spinach mashed potatoes. Medium rare, and you will go home happy.

    Start with empanadas; share the lomo relleno for dinner. If there's a wait, hit Small Bar and ask the host to call your cell.
