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.

We recently visited Tacoma for the first time. We sought out best steak houses and were so surprised to find Argentinian cuisine in Tacoma! We’re from Miami and are very familiar with Argentinian food. Although there was a hint of Mexican, it is pretty authentic...More

I found Asado in Tacoma to be very loud, so it was not a pleasant atmosphere for me. Our 4 person table was wedged next to another 4 person table making it a tight, uncomfortable sitting. This coupled with the ok food has me rating...More

Group of 4, ordered various items to share, everything was bland & they cooked our steak wrong. Overpriced for sure.

The food was absolutely incredible! My husband got the mixed meat dish and raved about it for the rest of our trip! I got the gnocchi and it was also phenomenal. The service was also wonderful. Highly recommend!

Definitely a fine cuisine, food was delicious if the price tags don't scare you. We had a dinner there. Valet parking was $5, well worth it as only street parking was available and can be difficult to find around meal times. We tried the appetizer...More

I went there on a Saturday night and there was a special menu with excellent prices on smaller plates and cocktails I had a blast and only spent about $20. Good for dates as well.

Check out their menu on-line. I’m pretty sure you ask them to not serve or substitute anything that may have gluten. Lots of meat, poultry and veggie options

Hi Susan from Poulsbo Go check their menus on the website. Lunch is a great option for tasting many of the dishes, without paying the higher prices and it is just as lovely during the day. Good luck
