Great Tapas and fun location

If you enjoy tapas and like a young energetic bar scene this is the place for you. The meats were spiced just right, the seafood fresh and vegetables were all done extremely well. No hesitation in recommending Tango.

In Capitol Hill, this cozy and well decorated place offers a good selection of wine and tapas. Ideal for romantic dates or friends. Of course, and as in every north American Spanish restaurant I miss Pata Negra. But is an excellent place in Seattle.

Make sure you plan enough time to have the Paella. It is outstanding, but takes up to an hour to make. It is worth the wait and you can have a some small plates and vino while you wait. The atmosphere is fun and this is a great place.

We loved Tango. Great table by the window, romantic candlelight, bottle of wine. Love the tapas and small plates. We ordered the cheap dates, green beans and harissa, roasted brussel sprouts, Penn Cove mussels, and queso fundido. Every dish was great. If I had to choose a favorite, it would probably be the brussel sprouts, amazingly enough. We will return.... More

I love this restaurant. I've been to Seattle twice, and hit this restaurant both times. The portion sizes are quite large for tapas style. In addition, they have a small tapas menu where you can pick and choose and order by bites. Will definitely be visiting again.

Could see this place from our hotel for the night so looked it up on TA. Good reviews so we had to check it out. Only tried the single serve appetizers, and had the Bacon wrapped dates (tasty but yes, a little too sweet), croquetas de Papas,( deep fried and delicious) but the winner was the Gambas Picantes (large grilled...

We booked this restaurant for New Year's Eve. We ordered the paella in advance, plus a few tapas. The paella had some good seafood on it but it was nothing special. The tapas were the best part of the meal. When we first arrived the music was much too loud but things toned down. We were rather chilly by the... More

I recently enjoyed dinner at Tango with a group of ten women. Tango has a private dining room that was perfect for our noisy, fun group. We ordered two dishes to share at a time, allowing us to try many dishes over a couple hours. We really enjoyed the roasted Brussels sprouts, paella, and shredded pork tacos. Great location on...

We were looking for a nice place for dinner before going to the theatre. Tango didn't disappoint. We ordered tapas and drinks. It was great and the staff were fantastic.

Went here to have dinner with a small group of friends. Amazing food, excellent service, and great customer service. Our waiter was attentive and made great recommendations for both drinks and food. Overall a great experience! We plan on coming here more often!
