Party of 3 and all had different steaks and they were all perfect. Sides, especially the quinoa, was very flavorful. Save room for any of the desserts. Service was good. Atmosphere is nice in that not to bright, not to dark. Go early to find parking.

We entered restaurant and were asked by bartender if we wanted to sit in the bar or restauran. We said we didn't mind. She pointed at a bunch of empty tables and told us to sit in the other room so we did. We were then approached by another person with menus who told us that the table we were... More

We loved the busy, energetic ambiance of this bar and restaurant in the heart of downtown Tacoma. I had a gin cocktail from the specials menu, called Ophelia something, and it was wonderful. Our food was great all around. When crowded, the indoor seating is loud, but there's a small patio out front that's a little quieter.

This restaurant has a longstanding reputation in Tacoma so we were not surprised when we tried to get a reservation online and it was constantly booked. But it turns out that you just need to go there. They will try to accommodate you and once seated they make your eating experience delightful. The food was consistently good, from the refreshing...

What can I say, I have always had a great time, either with a date or a group of friends. Skirt steak was amazing! They had a Kobe beef special once it was soo amazing! Polenta plate is great, I use that as an appetizer! I'm sad my fave waiter is gone!

This is our third time visiting Asado, we love their food. Especially good are the serrano wrapped prawns as an appetizer, the steelhead trout was delicious as was everything else we had. The waiter we had was also very good and gave us many good suggestions as to what to order from the menu. Love this restaurant and will go... More

Our second visit, first was a year ago. We made different choices this time and were delighted with the food. We both had skirt steak, my wife with Peruvian blue potatoes and I had polenta. Both were excellent, loved the polenta and the skirt steak was better than the filet mignon at a lot of chain restaurants. Very busy waiter,... More

Love the selection of great seafood & strong delicious cocktails. I'm a pescatarian so I can't really comment on the steaks- but the service, atmosphere, and veggie and fish dishes are awesome. I love the Ceviche and the empanadas!

I have to say that this place is the BEST food that I have had while living my life in Tacoma, Washington. Do yourself a favor and stop in for dinner, you will not regret 1 moment of it.

Thank MIKE M

Sizzle and smoke define Asado Cucina Argentina, the South Sound's only Argentine-themed steakhouse and a staple restaurant of the trendy Sixth Avenue dining district. Heady smoke wafts from the display kitchen where chefs sear beef over a mesquite grill. Low lighting is moody by night, bright and beautiful by day because of the expansive garage doors that roll up in the summertime, spilling diners onto Sixth Avenue. A mural evokes pastoral Argentina. Metalwork and heavy doses of deep-hued wood create a rustic urban palette. Social by design, with a large chef's table straddling the display kitchen. Bench booth seating connects diners to neighbors, but without being overly intrusive. The word "asado" means a gathering of friends for a grill party - the Argentine equivalent of an American patio barbecue - and that theme translates into a convivial gathering spot for friends and family. A steakhouse with a flavor-forward menu with preparations licked with smoke and sophistication.
