A word from Tango Bistro
Tango's menu offers contemporary American Cuisine in a comfortable setting, located just off the train tracks in Bryn Mawr. You can settle in to our Main Dining Room in a cozy banquette, enjoy dining by the fireplace or perhaps the intimacy of a smaller room with bright French doors. Our Train Room is reminiscent of a dining car as the train whizzes by the window. In the summer, enjoy Tango's deck seating. A large wrap-around patio comfortably seats guests under a shaded canopy or along our fabulous Cantina Bar. Voted "2008 Best Al Fresco Dining on the Main Line" by Main Line Today.

Our menu features the comfortable dishes you always love and we feature seasonal specialties with some cultural flare. Tango offers an extensive beverage menu and wine list to compliment your meal.

Diner Reviews
  • "The crab cakes were special -- full of lump crab. The burger was excellent -- juicy and tasty."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I ordered Eggs Benedict with Salmon which was wonderful. The Vodka/Pineapple cocktail was OK. The Mimosa was better. Calm atmosphere. Service was not at all intrusive (yea!). Only knock: From the photo on Open Table, I thought we would be dining in a garden setting; however, our table overlooked the parking lot. Other than that, all was well. I recommend."

  • "Tango has withstood the test of time. It has been here for years. The service is attentive and the food is fine. The parking is a plus. The restaurant offers deals - birthday specials and points toward cash rewards."

  • "Have been to TANGO several times. Our table was in an area, in the back..place pretty empty Within 1/2 hr..women walking back & forth setting up for a party a few tables away. Most had heels on, felt like I was eating w/a marching band. Very annoying. Many tables empty, it is a big place ..not quite sure why they put us in that area....or why they were put there Food fair. Had quiche, very heavy to digest..salad bland & bread no big deal Not worth taking a train to have lunch here..other than seeing a friend who does not like coming in to town."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "the setting was cute,next to trains going by. food lacked polish and interest. Flavors didn't meld together. Chocloate flourless cake tasted like heavy piece of fudge.Veal was chewy. We got to the restaurant a half hour early for 7 pm reservation and hostess couldn't seat us even though restaurant was 3/4 empty. She had to see how 6:45 reservations worked out. If they were going to have a table available for us at 7, how did a 6;45 reservation play into the mix?"

  • "Delicious as always. Always enjoy our meals at Tango."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The inside dining room is quiet and comfortable. The tables beside the RR line are noisy. Conversation is difficult. Food fine; high quality preparation and content. Pleasant waiters and waitresses. We have been there many times and return with pleasure and confidence."

  • "Went early on a Friday evening so the noise level was okay and the service unrushed,the food very good."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I always enjoy Tango, either for lunch or dinner. Mostly the food is fresh and well prepared and the service is excellent. It can be noisy in the evenings, on the weekends My only complaint is that it is hard to get in and out of the driveway do to the overpass nearby. Thank you."

  • "I live in Haverford, and Tango is a mile away from my house. I love this restaurant - It's my favorite lunch spot in the Ardmore/Bryn Mawr/Haverford area. Great bar, where you can sit and have a drink before going to your table to dine. The Train Room has romantic booths with large windows, and the trains run along the tracks right outside the windows - Feels as if you are on a luxury train in their dining car. Wide selection of food, both healthy (salads, soups, turkey and chicken dishes), to decadent. Good selection of wine by the glass, too. A+"

  • "We had a typically pleasant, tasty lunch at Tango's. And when I left, two women in a car stopped and asked me about Tango's, so I listed its virtues, and they promptly parked and went in. Can't buy that kind of advertising for any amount of money."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Great variety of food! I have been to Tango multiple times and it is consistently good, with a changing menu that offers many choices. Many choices for kids as we'll!"

  • "We are regulars at his neighborhood restaurant. Fantastic soups! Fish and seafood dishes are prepared to perfection. My husband loves the meatloaf and salads."

  • "always wonderful ... gr8 food and service and fun place for groups of galpals or guygatherings or business or families or whatever. one of my fav places if you cannot tell from my comments."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We enjoyed an evening of very tasty fish and a plate changed to meet our needs. However when we needed to leave the server was lost and wench did bring the bill got lost again and when he finally rang it up he split it instead of the separate checks we requested. We didn't want to wait even longer so we accepted this but we're not satisfied with Mike's service."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Taste of food very bland, uninspired. Quality and consistency has declined over the years. Out of four people only one liked what they ordered."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Service is always gr8 and love the choo choos going by from my booth btw (by the window.) gr8 selection of small plates and and entrees. Desserts to die for and onion soup is THE best. As anyone can plainly see, I LOVE TANGO!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We had a lovely dinner at Tango, seated in a booth at the window. As trains went by, it was fun to watch for passengers' faces in the windows. The food was good and service as attentive. The outdoor area was large, although since it was warm, we chose to eat indoors. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We always enjoy our meals here. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere. The outdoor bar and dining area is great in good weather. And if you're lucky you'll get a train or two whooshing by. "

  • "I have had the pleasure of visiting this fine place several times. There in lies the fact - I did return and each and every time, the food was fabulous, the staff attentive. It is one of my favorite places and so close to home as well."

  • "Great place to go with friends for lunch or dinner!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "He managed to slump his way to our table..seemed disinterested in us or being a waiter. Took the order. forgot a few things. Like ketchup for fries. Bread & olive oil comes before the meal not for dessert. Told the manager, surely when I come back, he'll be long gone He'll have a short shelf life Friend had ordered coffee, then a refill..had to wait & call him to get it. a few times Another waiter brought the stuff the first waiter forgot Never asked us how the meal was or if we wanted dessert. So we didn't even bother .. went out for frozen yougurt instead of having to deal with him"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Tango is a good standby on the Main Line. Our server, Matt was very attentive and prompt. The menu selection is great...along with a long wine list. There were 4 of us and 3 enjoyed our meals. The only odd thing was the music selection playing-it was top 20 throughout the dining rooms. We would have preferred something more relaxing-felt a little like we were at a club. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Serving staff seemed a bit overworked--too busy, which is good, for the number of workers, which is not good. Fairly long waits for ordered items, need to remind servers of prior requests."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "My friends and I always enjoy going to Tango for lunch. There is ambiance yet it isn't too noisy. I also enjoy having dinner there, with my family or just "a deux" with my husband for a romantic dinner or a special event. The food is consistently good, never overpriced, and the service is courteous and efficient. We are lucky to have such a restaurant in our neighborhood! "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "First time to this lovely place and it was just incredible. Service was excellent, the food was perfect. I will return and hopefully very soon"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Been here twice in two weeks. Two different servers, both with attitudes suggesting they could care less about our experience. If it was just the first time we could chalk it up to a fluke. But two different servers in a short period suggests that management does not demand service excellence. As an aside, this restaurant claims a gluten free menu. Servers have no understanding of this, however, and gave us no confidence that food was prepared correctly gluten free. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Because of traffic, my daughter and I arrived with only 60 minutes to eat. Waiter was borderline incompetent. In spite of my entreaty to allow us to have a quick dinner, he disappeared after the meal arrived. Fortunately the hostess stopped by the table and, at my request, brought the check so we could depart on time. The check was incorrect. The hostess allowed us to depart with a "manual deduction" on the credit charge. On the other hand, the food was excellent. This restaurant needs to put it all together."

  • "Tango is a nice neighborhood restaurant that we like as well as a number of our friends. The servers are usually attentive & helpfull. I recommend eating outdoors weather permitting. The $30.00/bottle wine specials are also usually good considering the cost. "
