I was really surprised by the quality and prep of the steaks here, very good quality and grilled to perfection. Everything was very fresh. The service by Erica, was friendly and professional. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Recommended.

We had dinner here last night with some friends. We've lived nearby for a few years, and had always been meaning to go. Definitely lived up to the expectation! We were treated very well, the atmosphere felt authentic, and we had a relaxed and lively evening. This is not a place to go for speedy service, but a place to... More

The ambiance at tango sur is amazing and is perfect for a romantic night out. Since the establishment is BYOB you can purchase a bottle of red wine to pair with the meal prior. The cost is reasonable and the portion sizes are outstanding. It has one of the best wait staffs in Chicago.

My girlfriend and I decided to eat somewhere close to the Music Box theater. Well after looking at the reviews of near by restaurants we decided to try Tango Sur. The food was prepared differently than usual American style with a very pleasurable unique flavor. However the noise and the crowd made for an extremely unromantic evening. Also it is... More

The food is really good, Argentinean food. I went for dinner, but there is no light at all. Only candles, so its hard to see your plate really well. Moreover there is a guy who plays the guitar, but the music is so laud that you can hardly talk. You have to take your own wine. The customer service is... More

We went early since we know the place gets very busy at night. The place is cozy, nice decor. The waiters are Argentinian which is really nice!. We brought our own wine. The portions are really big, so, we decided to split them, one for two people. Then we were told that they will split them for a fee of... More

The food at this restaurant was excellent, but it is a meat-eaters heaven. The empanadas are excellent! My daugher and I shared the Lomo Relleno with chimichurri sauce. It was incredible! This was enough for 3-4 people so we had a lot of leftovers which heated up well the next day for another meal for two people. This is a... More

It isn't exactly Argentina, but in the City of broad Shoulders it's my favorite joint if I do have to eat steak. Prices a bit high, but not compared to the other steakhouses in this area. Busy for a reason; the bifes there are pretty divine.

Neighbourhood Profile
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
