My girlfriends and I recently went to Tandem for a girls night out dinner. We had such a wonderful time and loved the owner...She made excellent reccomendations for wine and food. We were already making plans to go back and maybe bring our husbands this time.

Recently tried Tandem for the first time. Fantastic!! Ordered the Filet and best I've ever had. Hubby had the Halibut, which was also so yummy! We will be back.

More than a wine bar, a full menu with great selections. Chef Brad is a master creator. They do have a super wine selection. They're located only one block off Main Street in Bothell, WA. Locals seem to love it.

The food was fine. The wine was excellent (albeit overpriced). The service was poor. We arrived to a full house and were shown upstairs which was out the front door, up a staircase and into a loft. This would have been romantic were it not for the cold and quiet. In addition, our server questioned the authenticity of our gift... More

Horrible wait time!!! So disappointed. Waitress talked up the wine and specials. Wine ok but halibut overpriced and drowning in butter. I eat fish but avoid chicken and beef. Pretty sure the risotto I subbed for mashed potatoes (@ $7) was cooked in chicken broth. Feel sick. Don't go if u value your time or taste.

My wife and I found this restaurant on the web and were looking for a short quick dinner. It lasted four hours. The service, food, wine, and atmosphere was fantastic, relaxing! The owner advised us on a couple of local wines and they were great! The food was fresh halibut, done perfectly and the best halibut I have had, and... More

It's quaint and charming = squished and overpriced. The food was all good, though the portions we thought were small for the price. I agree with many of the comments about getting oversold on wine and what I would call trickiness on billing. Reminded me a bit of a car salesman - not quite sure what each fee was. We've... More

Making reservations is awkward. When I called you are asked to leave a message and they will call you back. They called the next afternoon and said it would be 8 PM. When we got there they said they had no record of a reservation, but they did find a seat for us next to the door. Another couple came... More

It's a tiny restaurant, at least the downstairs part (which is all I've been in) and arriving without a reservation means you'll be crowded up against a wall, but nevertheless it's delightful. The food is very good and everything is cooked to order by one man, the owner, I think. So, the more crowded, the longer you'll wait. A bit... More
