Great Food and Great Service

A group of 8 of us went there and we had a set menu consisting of regular menu items. We began with drinks and a first course of Spanish Olives and Toasted Almonds and Bacon wrap dates. The dates were a hit with the group. For a second course we had Queso Azul - a blue cheese souffle with... read more

The charcuterie we started with was great. We loved the sangria. The mussels were fantastic with a little kick from the chorizo in the sauce. The pork carnitas were fantastic. And the Diablo chocolate mousse for desert with the cayenne kick was awesome. Ryan was a great server and really helped getting the gluten free options right.

We were staying downtown in Seattle and Tango sounded good to us and walkable. We made a reservation and when we arrived we were given a choice table, up front right next to a window (good for people watching). We decided to order the seafood paella as its not many restaurants that offer it. We were told it would take... More

We went on a crowded Wednesday night with a 7:30 reservation and our party of five was seated immediately. Throughout the evening, our well-informed server was attentive and cordial. We ordered 8+ tapas dishes that ranged from good to great. Service was extremely efficient and orders came up at appropriate intervals. Some of the tapas were bite size single serving... More

My wife and I had dinner at the bar in this restaurant prior to attending the ACT theater and found it very enjoyable. They had a nice dinner and tapas selection along with a good wine selection.

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!

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.
