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.

Really, really good tapa place. Food is always great, the staff is terrific and it is easy walking from downtown and Capital Hill. Great value too. We keep coming back. LOVE.

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

A tapas style restaurant in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle. We ordered several small plates including the octopus, the Spanish cheese that was broiled and served with apples and toasted bread and a couple of other plates all of which were fabulous! We ordered the carne paella for our table which was lay your head down on the table... More

The dinner was delicious, but left my fiance and I with upset stomachs for the entire next day. May have been just a bad night. We were a little disappointed that we received all of our food almost at once and then waited quite awhile for our last dish.... could have been timed better. We waited a little, but our... More

It is helpful to have a tappaeducator waitress for the tappa- impaired ordering public (me) and they do it just right. Dates & bacon. Who woulda thunk it.

This night they had a special 4 course meal for $45 a person. We decided just to order tapas and i was glad we did. THe food is absolutely delicious here. They are very small plates, so you may want to get two. We ordered carnitas; my mouth is salivating just to think about the juicy tender pork. I also... More

I've received the name of the restaurant from AMEX platinum concierge, which is a promising start by itself. Arrived a bit early than the reservation but was seated with minimal delay. Appetizers looked and tasted great. Wine selection is superb, great matching wine to the menu. We ordered the carne paella, the wait time was a bit long but filled... More

A nice little restaurant in Seattle. Their paella is pretty good with loads of seafood overflowing the pan. Love the chocolate Diablo - very smooth with a complex flavor. Queso Azul is not bad. The Queso Fundido was way overcooked. Also tried their Carnitas del Puerco - was expecting more flavor... so I was a little disappointed. The Croquetas and... More

My husband and I spent an impromptu 2 day trip to Seattle over New Year's and we were lucky enough to get a last minute reservation for New Year's Eve dinner at Tango. We took a risk as we had never been there before, but were pleasantly surprised. Everything from the ambiance, service, food and drinks was excellent! We opted... More
