This is a conveniently located restaurant serving tapas.The service is friendly and place the cozy, but the food is inconsistent. Some dishes are tasty and fun while others are not worth the effort. The squid was chewy and tough but the lamb was delicious. I've certainly had better tapas but for a meal before a show, this will be fine.

This restaurant was handy just being across the street from the Homewood Suites, so one evening I popped in to sample their fare. Everything that I had was extremely tasty. I also have to commend the young lady who was my server. She offered very helpful suggestions and each one was spot on. A very enjoyable dinner.

The tapas were fun, octopus was soooo salty neither my husband or I could finish, and unfortunately the Sangria was watered down. We love tapas bars and Spanish food, but we both felt let down. We literally tried everything on the small plates tapas menu and waited for over and hour to eat a small portion of the seafood Paella,... More

Dined at the bar, very busy restaurant on a Saturday night. Had wanted (and ordered) my tapas to come individually, but they didn't arrive that way. Not the wait persons fault (bartender) as she was entering them individually but the kitchen pushed out their tether, which was annoying )and reason for -1 star). What I did order, I enjoyed, the...

If you want your "evening out" to be an event, not just a meal, Pick Tango! The menu style is "tapas" that can be served "family style" or menu entrees. We live in Texas and visit Tango every time we visit Seattle. This time, we had a group, and the "dining experience" was exceptional, in terms of the quality of... More

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!

Tango Restaurant and Lounge serves Latin inspired cuisine and cocktails in a fun, sophisticated 1908 brick building on the cusp of Capitol Hill. From the Tango front door it is just a short walk to the Convention Center, Paramount Theater and ACT Theater. Tango is a family owned restaurant that prides itself on great paella, ceviche and mojitos.
Come on in and enjoy!
