I was disappointed that there
I was disappointed that there was not more Gluten Free options for lunch. 3 of the 4 people at the table were Celiac sufferers

Will definitely be going back !!
Excellent food with great service and atmosphere. Everything about the dinner was great. Even though they brought out the wrong dish, they quickly replaced it with the right one and we received a complimentary dessert by surprise. The small plates for sharing is ideal and allows you to try a large variety of things. Will definitely be returning to Tango in the future. This restaurant is a place everyone needs to visit.

Trio Appreciates Tango
We three very senior citizens, friends for over sixty years, had a fabulous time at Tango. The wait staff was helpful, caring and fun. We love to travel and appreciate good food wherever we go. Tango did not disappoint. Tango's mushroom soup is a tasty treasure and the shot glasses of dessert are the perfect ending to a delicious lunch.
We will return. Ole'.

This was our second visit to Tango -- certainly not our last. We were lucky enough to enjoy the wonderful, attentive - yet not intrusive service from our server Etienne who took care of us on our first visit. My husband and I love this style of eating - small plates, lots of choices. Love the bright open atmosphere and bustling - but not noisy level of conversation.
A great experience once again.

been to tango a few times now and every time I go I enjoy myself. I must admit I am a little dissapointed they keep changing their menu. I understand they want to encourage a fresh new menu as new seasons approach however some of their best items theyve removed. The cheese fondue tapa was my all time favourite and everytime I return to tango I hope they've brought it back... still waiting haha. I also love that they cater to gluten free and other diets. Tango is great for big groups or a simple date night. I've done both at this resturaunt and I would definitly reccomend tango.

I have been to Tango 3x in the last month and a half because it was fantastic the first time, the food the ambience, the service and the wine list. I have brought my friends and they all love the food as well. The ambience is very comfortable and all three tables I enjoyed sitting at with my friends. I have tried almost every dish and all are outstanding my favorite is the Scallops. The food is consistently high quality and very tastefull. I would defintely recommend them to anyone I know.

We invited some friends to join us as they'd just arrived from northern Italy. The ambience and style of food was just right and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the difference in eating out. I think we tried a bit of everything on the menu. The mixing and matching tapas style went over well. What's more we did not leave the restaurant feeling as though we'd overeaten. Our table staff were wonderful and helpful, knew the dishes and provided helpful advice for our enjoyment. The four of us were non-drinkers but our steward came up with some nice non alcohol surprises.

This was our second visit to Tango Bistro; it's a great spot for friends to share food and conversation; would also be a great spot for people who don't know each other well as the food can be a topic to get the ball rolling. Our server [don't remember her name] was fun, bantering back and forth with us. We loved that the noise level was such that easy conversation was encouraged. We were delighted with our visit; the food was exceptional and we'll be back for sure........probably with other friends whom we'd like to introduce to the experience.

Always a great time at Tango!
Always a great time at Tango! My friend & I shared the scallops (a must), pork belly, lobster gnocchi and asparagus. It's the perfect place to relax with a glass (or two) of wine and gab with friends.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is delicious!! I love going with my co-workers or friends for the quick lunch. I've been numerous times with larger groups of friends for "Mommy Nights Out" and get togethers with friends. Love the free corkage specials and amble food to share! Reminds me of hosting a gathering at home, but you are in a relaxing and firendly environment being served. I love going in the winter and sitting by the fire with some good food and a glass of wine. I don't get out in the evenings as much as I used to with a small child, but this spot is always top of mind when getting out with friends. I have yet to go with my husband (he's a big fan of Bolero lol). Good work!

Did the Living Social deal and was blown away. Great food.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service from Dave and all the dishes we had were very good.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service! My wife and I come to Tango a lot and we are never disappointed!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service is always great. The food always brings us back. Our favourite is The Mixed grill and tenderloin surf and turf. Menu fits everyone's taste buds. Defiantly a must try.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a fabulous time enjoying different dishes with wine pairings and was very impressed with the quality of our experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great second visit to Tango
I've been to Tango only once before, for dinner, which was a great experience. The menu, service, and atmosphere were great the first time, and I was just as happy this time around. We went for lunch on a weekday, and they have a nice short fixed-price lunch menu which made ordering easy. I'm not sure if the full menu is available at lunchtime as well, but there was enough variety on the lunch menu to keep us happy. Food came out very quickly, and the portions were a good size for a weekday lunch. Our server was great, very friendly with a good sense of humor. I will definitely be back!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food, slow service
My wife and I like tapas restaurants and the menu was pretty good. We enjoyed all three dishes we ordered -- when we got them. Unfortunately, there was a long delay between dishes and we had finished a second glass of wine before the last dish was delivered. We don't expect them to come out all at the same time, but this was a problem. Perhaps there was a problem in the kitchen and the server apologized (but didn't offer to do anything about this). Hopefully, this was an anomaly and not a regular occurrence.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were not disappointed with anything that came to the table! Fast and delicious!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite Lunch Spot
I frequently have lunch at Tango Bistro with a group of friends as well as with family and we all always enjoy the food and ambience.
The meal portion is perfect. Service is friendly and efficient. Will be back!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and great service
All the food is sharing. A little difficult to do if you are in a large group but the restaurant was very accommodating. I think this is better for couples. Wait staff were very friendly. Great visit
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food that we tried was great , noise level was low, service was very good. We will definitely be coming back to this place in the future.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed the whole experience from great staff to outstanding food. The atmosphere is fabulous. We highly recommend it but leave your kids at home.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great tapas style food.
Awesome food, nice place. Service was a little slow at first but got better as the night went on. Good for a date or family gathering.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Business lunch
The three of us went for a business lunch on a week day, we received prompt service and a great meal. Thank you again. We will be back.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the second time we have been to Tango and it was pretty good. My only complaint would be that some of the dishes were really pricey for what you got. The shrimp summer rolls were $10 and it was one roll cut in half. The boar bacon wrapped tenderloin was delicious but at $14 for 4 little cubes of meat it was a bit of a rip off. On the plus side, the cheese fondu, fried green tomatoes and bocconcini salad all both delicious as were the desserts. The make your own s'mores were especially fun and the oatmeal gelato sandwiches were delish. All in all we would definitely go to Tango again but we would be more careful about our choices.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious small plates
Had dinner with family. Some chose the Sunday dinner option (good value) and others the tapas to share (better quality and more selection).
Best bites of the night- scallops and tenderloin. Amazing.
Sunday dinner included soup or salad, protein choice, shared sides (3) and dessert for $20. Great deal.
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had such a great time dinning here. Tapas is such a great style. Service and food were incredible. We will be returning.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The buffalo mac and cheese was amazing! The service was good and the atmosphere was warm and romantic. It was a great place for date night.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the ever changing menu and the superb food. I didn't think they could match the pulled pork chipotle poutine, but the current beef jalfrezi is just awesome!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Lunch Hour
Normally getting through a nice meal at Tango for lunch takes just over an hour... We were able to get in and out with dessert and not feel rushed in under an hour. Fantastic!!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tango is such a great place to hang out with friends. So many wonderful tasty dishes to choose from. Our favourites this evening were the prawn dish and the wild boar skewers.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Tango many times and as usual it was fabulous. Tried a few of the new menu items and all were delicious! The pork belly empanadas were delicious as we're the beet fries and the oysters. Looking forward to going back soon.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful as usual
Love Tango Bistro. Our son and his girlfriend treated us for dinner. The food and service were great as usual. However, we were seated beside a big table full of noisy and rowdy guys so it kinda ruined our dinner a little as it was difficult to hear us speak. However, this will not stop us from coming back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tango is a favorite restaurant of mine as well as my friends and family. The selection of meals and desserts is always excellent, even though we usually stick with a few favorites, but there is always something new to try. I highly recommend the S'mores you make at your table for dessert! I have been to Tango for casual lunches and dinners as well as more romantic dinners and I would say it is great for any occasion.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time @ Tango!
Saturday evening was our first time - we'll be back The manager/host, Rich, seated us promptly & checked back several times to make sure all was going well. A personal touch! We found the "high tables & chairs" to be surprisingly comfortable. We arrived for an early dinner & happily, could hear ourselves talk, as noise level was quite low (apart from a nearby infant's cries). Our friendly waitress, Michelle, explained the Tapas style concept. Menu has lots of options divided into Meat, Fish & Veggies. Our favourite was Roasted Scallops with Parsnip Puree & Wild Mushrooms - Scallops were nicely browned & Parsnip Puree/ Mushrooms, forming the base of the dish, were flavourful! YUM!! Enjoyed tasting other dishes, too! Fun evening!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were told by a friend about their enjoyment of Tango and were in Calgary from out of town for the weekend. We made a reservation online which was very quick and easy with a confirmation email to let us know that we were good for a Saturday night. As we were travelling to the restaurant we got stuck in traffic and were going to be a little late so we called and they were very friendly and bumped it back 20 minutes without a problem. The atmosphere was quiet and very suitable for talking, the waitress was very helpful as we had never been there before and the food was amazing. It was the perfect way to end a Saturday. Absolutely a great restaurant with the chance to try different type of food. Two thumbs up.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect dinning experience
Everything was just gorgeous! I had no complian about the great food, decor and service. We will definitely be back!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was great. Food
The service was great. Food was good. I have had better there but it was still pretty decent.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Returned for the Scallops!
Had a tasty second dining experience at Tango Bistro last Saturday! We enjoyed the Roasted Scallops with Parsnip Puree and Mushrooms so much last month, that we went back a second time for another taste. With so many tapas choices on the menu, all the other dishes we ordered were different from our first evening there. Enjoyed everything that we tried. Roasted beets were so tender and deliciously sweet. Love the shot-glass-style desserts for $2.50 - just a little taste of sweet to finish off your dinner! Rich is a great host! Will return with our family next time!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tango you made me look like a star!
I took my foodie friend there for dinner & she absolutely loved it. She is used to very good food so I was a little worried about taking her there but not that much as I've been there quite a few times & its not disappointed me yet. We started with the argula, pear & blackberry salad, she loved that, then the risotto with short ribs. It was delicious altho I think a bit short on the rib portion. The beet chips were amazing, beets dipped in cornstarch then fried. They were scrumptious, very lightly fried, in fact you could hardly tell they had been, served with aioli that was perfect-not heavily garlic just really yummy. We then had bison wrapped in bacon-good, with some nice sauces but not my favourite, a bit tough, bacon soft.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Different than the usual
This is definetely a different type of restaurant and menu where you try different items and share the main dishes. We really liked it.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice take on tapas
Tasty food, good take on tapas, best to order multiple dishes at one time or food can be slow to come out.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Again good food and service
Again good food and service is always with a smile. Thanks for another great date night. Our favourite place to go!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
great tapas choices. We had
great tapas choices. We had the cajun chicken wontons and beet fries. The flavors in each were complimented and enhanced by excellent sauces.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
First Time - Loved it.
Enjoyed the food, wine and ambiance. Near a huge fireplace. Great service. Food is served hot so it arrives sporadically. Appreciated that they permit customers to bring their own wine and have reasonable corkage charge.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tango is a great place to go and have a non rushed relaxing evening. We had an amazing time talking, drinking wine and enjoying great food....
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a great evening and
It was a great evening and we loved the fact there was no blaring music or that background rumble in so many places that make it hard to talk.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
A pleasant evening
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Tango Bistro. The service was great and we liked all four of the tapas dishes we tried. Great vegetarian and gluten-free options - the menu makes it extremely easy to order if you have dietary restrictions. The wine list is reasonable; not huge but has something for everyone.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been here several times now and find it consistently great. Always have a great waiter/waitress which is important when doing tapas as you don't want them coming too fast or too slow. They always make great suggestions and don't rush you when you are taking your time and chatting in between courses. The food is hot, cooked perfectly and great selection.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our group of 8 celebrated our end of year painting lessons at Tango Bistro. Service was fast and very professional which allowed us to visit easily and carry on with our busy day after lunch. This is our semi-annual lunch spot for our painting group. Perfect ambience and food!
