Awesome Tapas

My wife and I stopped in before a show at the Paramount. It happened to be Monday which is half price bottle of wine day. Very nice selection of Spanish reds and the tapas on happy hour were great. We will certainly be back here when in the area.

While visiting Seattle we had the pleasure of dining at Tango. We received wonderful attentive service without the server hovering over us. The food was delicious and beautiful...Definitely would recommend Tango.

Heading to a play nearby and saw that it was close so decided to check it out and we were very impressed. There were four of us so we chose a variety of items and all of them were so very good, some of the items we had never heard of. I also love the ambiance! Will definitely go back!

We had a delicious tapas dinner - the carnitas, octopus, croquettes, and cheap date - all awesome! Our server was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and gave us great recommendations. Loved it!!!

Came here on recommendation from a friend to try the El Diablo. Easily one of the best desserts I've ever had. Mouthwatering flavors and that caramel sauce is divine.

I've had a lot of tapas and I thought this had a good menu and fair prices. The server was helpful and polite, not so much the host. Food was well prepared and delicious.

We loved the tapas choices at Tango. The croquettes, octopus, dates, white anchovies and queso azul were all particularly well done. The desserts were also excellent, particularly the notable El Diablo. The service was only okay for us. I hate getting a bad table when good ones go unused. Our server seemed a bit indifferent and did not want to... More

Best happy hour I've experienced yet, and that's saying something! Drinks are well-priced classics, tapas are transcendent. A new favorite hang-out.

Loved the atmosphere! Just like a little bistro in Madrid or Barcelona. Service by Sabrina was very attentive and she gave excellent suggestions. They had a great selection of tapas, salads, and larger plates, all unique and perfect for foodies. The carafe of Sangria was a perfect pairing for their food. Wines selections were good as well. Make a reservation... More
