Even though I thought the waiter was very good and friendly, my lunch was too oily. I had the curly sausage from the grill section. Maybe I just chose badly as all other reviews of this place is positive. The warm bread that came at the beginning of the meal was very nice.

Live music, reasonably price wine list. Very good service. Enjoyed the arugula salad. Octopus app was tasty but with over-cooked greens.

Outstanding beef, wine, and appetizers. All of the cuts of meat looked excellent. The Caprese salad with ham was a nice touch. Even though this place is not cheap, I felt it was worth it. Xavier was an excellent waiter.

We had a intimate booth and the waiter Xavier was friendly, polite and attentive. We started out with complimentary chimichurri sauce with bread and homemade chips. We had plain and sparkling waters while we perused the menu. We ordered ceviche and a salad and while it was being prepared Xavier brought over a wooden board with a variety of beef... More

I had a great dinner at Tango & Malbec and was entertained by the amazing tango dancers. Coming from Australia, they were perplexed we ordered a steak to share (it was 560g). Steak was cooked to perfection. We also had the grilled jalapenos and key lime pie. Both were excellent. Great attentive service.

Went with a girlfriend and sat out on the patio. I guess lunches aren't their busiest time. There weren't many people there. Service was great. Ceviche offered fresh, tangy flavor. But I prefer ceviche in chunks instead of larger strips of fish. I also prefer more of the veggies, but the taste was spot on. The Caesar salad was pretty... More

The ambiance is incredible and you are immediately greeted with a warmth that makes you feel as though you were expected. The food and wine menu are extensive and at first you almost feel overwhelmed but then a waiter comes and offers to assist you and you can relax and just let them do what they do best, take care...

I had never heard of this restaurant before going but it's a friend's favorite eatery in Houston! Upon arrival we are seated in the front area near a window, the area is quiet so it's good for first dates. The ceviche is delicious and a fairly large portion. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. With this place in the... More

Stopped in for dinner during a business trip and overall has a good experience. The food options were good and there was a large wine menu. Out food was cooked to the right temperature and seasoned very well. Depending on the night you visit, there is entertainment. We had a live music during the evening we visited. I am not... More

In this restaurant you can find a good choice of Texan and south American cuisine. The service is very good. The prices are a little bit higher than expected.
