Good Intimate Setting

This restaurant is a nice little intimate joint. My wife and I came here for the first time and we enjoyed it. My wife had the lamb and I had the seafood stew. Food was very tasteful, good atmosphere and the service was on point. They did seat us at a table that was underneath a leaky pipe so I... read 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!

Had a last minute dinner here, getting only some cold tapas and a dessert. Average quality food, with the exception of the dessert which was delicious. Cozy ambient and bar, a little high in prices compared to the food I was served...

Four of us went and shared many dishes. Each one was well prepared and flavorful. Our server Ramon was personable and made great recommendations. It was just across the street from our hotel. DO NOT MISS the dessert they are known for. It will be the most memorable thing you have!

Last night my husband and I went to Tango for the third time - and for the third time we had an awesomely wonderful meal. We also happened in when happy hour was going on; the first four things on the happy hour menu all appealed to us so we ordered them: mussels, meatbals, queso fundido and a Spanish tortilla... More
