The food, atmosphere and service was very good. We had tapas and paella, which were all delicious. One person had a tenderloin that was overcooked and sent back twice but was corrected. The gave a complimentary tapas and dessert because of the inconvenience. We would dine there again.

Fav go to place. Dress up or dress down - this place has a great selection of small plates packed with flavor to keep you guessing and so happy. Plus - this place is home to the VERY best desert in Seattle - The El Diablo. That is worthy of its own review. Tonight was dinner with a friend -... More

Saw the restaurant's sign from our hotel room one evening last week and decided to walk over for an early dinner. Enjoyed a fabulous paella; but be prepared to wait 50 min or so; enjoy the Sangria and small plates/appetizers while you wait! Excellent service; friendly and knowledgeable staff!

Small plates because it's a tapas restaurant. Nice vibe, interesting menu, good waiter, a bit noisy early evening. The mussels were fantastic. Ask for extra bread to sop up the delicious sauce. Lamb chops, roasted carrots, all good! Would be fun to be with a bigger group to enjoy more dishes. Highly recommend!

My wife and I enjoyed an early Saturday dinner here and left happy as usual. We shared a variety of flavorful tapas, a half carafe of refreshing sangria and El Diablo, the best dessert in town. Service was friendly and well paced. Later, after our movie, we returned for a nightcap and some small bites. Delish!

Many, many options to choose from, including vegan/vegetarian. Exquisite paellas and tapas, other entrees and specials, all skillfully made with top-quality ingredients. If you have any dietary problems, they'll work with you and make anything (including paella) from scratch. The service is always cordial, professional, and just attentive enough. This has been one on my favorites for a long time... More

Great atmosphere was first impression. Sat at the bar to eat as I was on my own. It was great to find two other women at the bar also on business and dining on their own. Papas bravas and mocequa with a nice glass of white wine. The service at the bar was warm and friendly. Food was excellent and... More

My husband and I went to Tango to celebrate my birthday. It was absolutely delicious! We shared the papas bravos, which tasted just like the ones I ate in Spain. Then we shared the paella mixta. Oh man, it was amazing! The seasoning on the paella was spot on, and the meat was fabulously prepared. The fillet was tender and... More
