Description: 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 have been enjoying Asado's excellent Argentinian fare since they opened a few years ago. The staff is friendly, the food is consistently flavorful and well executed, and the ambiance is warm and lively.

This restaurant is incredible. Service was excellent. The food was fanstastic, everything that was ordered was excellent and was amazingly fast. The filet was melt in your mouth delicious. The wrapped prawns... can't say enough! This is a must place to go to for dinner!

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

Had a great evening with friends and LOVED the food. We fell upon the restaurant by luck as we where looking for a bite late after spending the whole day in the car.

I am relatively new at posting on trip advisor but happy to say I will return again when I am in the area. I had the Camarones con Jamon y Chorizo... Amazing. I am originally from spain and this is as close as you can get to the quality we are use to in the Iberian peninsula. Well done y hasta pronto!

“Unexpected dining totally worth the shot.”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We stumbled upon Asado Cucina by "winging it". Our plan to dine at another place didn't pan out so we sat, in the car, at some random parking lot in Gig Harbor trying to figure out where to go. Thank goodness for tripadvisor app!! After an hour (yep took that long), we decided to head out to Tacoma and wing Asado based on the good reviews and ratings. We had no reservation so we took our chance and waited for seats in the bar. Needless to say, it was all worth it. The food was great!! The beef and lamb empanada was perfection and the flat iron steak was tender and scrumptious. I especially loved the Mango Motini!! We will definitely go back and making a reservation this time :)
