Enjoyed the 'business lunch' where you pick a starter, main and side. The wild mushroom soup was probably the best I have ever eaten. The chicken and Brie sandwich and the pear and blackberry salad were also very tasty. The food was nicely presented. Will definitely visit here again.

I had eaten here a couple of years ago and thought it was only ok. The portions seemed too small for what they were charging. I ate here again on July 4, and not only were the portions larger, but the food seemed better as well. The highlights for me were the beet fries and the peanut butter cookie/banana gelato... More

Good cuisine. Tapas style so 3-4 people/guests are optimum. Moderate prices. Service is good. Nice decore and atmosphere. Parking can be a problem because it's popular.

Took everyone from two 4 year olds to 94 and everyone really enjoyed it. Excellent mushroom soup beautifully presented, and great blackberry Brie salad. Article char, Great chicken cordon blue and family style roasted cauliflower. Bread pudding was amazing. Not your average kid menu. Excellent value.

We were visiting Calgary for a couple of days and looking for a restaurant to have a nice dinner. The pear and gorgonzola flat bread was just amazing! and the fried beets and fried yams were surprisingly tasteful. our server was super nice and genuine. Could not be happier!

I was taken to Tango by a friend who thought I may like the unusual menu and great options for a diner like me who is NOT a steak and baked potato sort of gal! Suffice to say, even with just 2 of us ordering and tasting the wonderful small dishes, I was wishing I had a bigger belly to... More

First time at this restaurant. A little hard to find since it's between Smugglers Inn and Sesame. The waitress explained how many dishes to order for our table size and we went to town. Our favourites were the the tenderloin, lobster rolls and the yam fries. We had the bread pudding for dessert - it's large so you should share... More

Went with a group of 7, and tried 15 different items on menu not including dessert. Everything was delicious especially the risotto. Service was also excellent.

Tried this restaurant out, based on recommendations. The food was delicious. We had risotto, poutine, brie, yam fries, and a couple of dessert shooters. It was very tasty. The service was...ok. The servers were not quick enough to refill water (we had to ask), and I had to remind her that we ordered wine. It wasn't bad service, just...inexperienced. All... More

The first time I went, I loved it, then each subsequent time I've gone the food has been less good and the service slower. I don't understand why, when you order tapas to share, they bring them out one teeny tiny plate at a time. If two adults are sharing and there are 3 scallops on the plate, don't you... More
