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

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... More

Our objective was to be close to the Paramount Theatre, I always wear heels and shouldn't, to a concert! However, I found Tango, because of proximity. Tapas bar, thought light food would be awesome. The menu is fabulous, a huge variety of items on offer. Cocktail menu is awesome too. It's situated right on a main intersection, with parking close... More

I tried this place with my cousin and his fiance under their high recommendation. I must say, they are some of the best tapas I have had, though they are really pricy. The interior is modern, Spanish-inspired with a romantic, classy ambiance, though the noise level is fairly loud. We sat at the bar, and the bartender was nice, attentive... More

Tango continues to be reliable for a very good assortment of tapas and drinks, including many gluten-free options (not many GF gazpacho offerings, let alone very good gazpacho). Surprisingly empty on a Friday evening (Seahawks exhibition game, as it turned out), so crowd and noise were low, but that's atypical. Bottom line: good place to eat and drink. We always... More

The small plates lets you try lots of different tastes. Share with a friend and you can try twice as many. The Queso Fundido is so tasty you can make a meal from it alone. The wait staff are uniformly friendly and helpful.

Bring an appetite, because you are going to want to try a great deal of the dishes on this menu. My boyfriend and I stumbled across this little gem, and it was one of the more memorable meals of my life to date. We sampled a number of their tapas and were blown away by the incredible layers of flavours.... More
