Stopped in for a quick bit yummy dinner. Had the bacon wrapped dates, the duck confit salad and carnitas. All great. Staff was friendly and the service was excellent.

Wandered into this place after recommendation from a local friend. Kyle, a friendly, knowledgeable and lovely waiter met us and welcomed us in. The tapas are perfect: fave is the fig! The rest of the menu is also ah-mazing. The white sangria is to die for! Also the cake called El Diablo and the banana/ pine nut tart is life... More

Just several weeks after being in Barcelona, we visited Seattle for a long weekend. We heard about Tango from a friend, and wanted to enjoy the tapas experience again. Tango is in a great location, just two blocks from our downtown hotel. We were warmly greeted, were sat immediately, and greeted by waitstaff quickly. We got water right away, but... More

This is the best Paella I have had stateside. Once you order it, it can take up to an hour to come but it's worth every minute wait

Tapas style eating. I loved the food and the price isn't that bad. We sampled a bunch of different tapas and none of them disappointed. I happened to love the anchovies appetizer.

The service was better than the food. The food is well prepared but unremarkable. The cuisine is Pacific Northwest, not Spanish. The atmosphere is dingy, although the restaurant appeared clean. It's OK to go to once.

Tango by far sets the standard all the way around for what an ideal restaurant experience is to my husband and I: superb service, friendly faces, low lit with a welcoming ambience, inspired menu, and mouth-watering food! We love it here. Whenever we see shows at The Paramount Theater which is only two blocks away, we dine here. It is... More

We ordered the carne paella for our table which was lay your head down on the table... More
