It had been six years since our last dinner at Asado, but our recent meal there was just as good as we remembered. Our waitress, Sarah, was terrific--friendly and efficient. But then the entire staff contributes to that efficiency; everyone is an expediter. The deck...More

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

Yes, I agree with the other answers; business casual, or just nicely dressed casual. It's a nice restaurant, but not a formal restaurant. Great food! Don't forget to order a creme brulee- they make the best!

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.
