    We enjoy going to Tano when we can. It's a great dining experience. The food is outstanding. Service is top notch. Other than a glitch where they didn't acknowledge my Open Table reservation (since corrected by Open Table and Tano), everything was great. Tom is a great bartender and was really busy on Tuesday night. Keep up the great work!

  • Wife's B-Day Dinner

    We went to Tano Bistro for my wife's birthday. I think it was the 40th; AGAIN! While we were 5 minutes late for our 7pm reservation, the table wasn't ready. They were very busy, but only waited about 10 minutes to be seated. Drinks & appetizers came quickly & were awesome. Meal preparation for wife;s entree was unique with crushed blue corn dusting of shrimp; very good. My halibut entree was delicious. The only drawback & it's minor, was our seats were in a small dining area "beyond" the bar so the noise level was higher than one would normally like for evening dining. I guess the alternative would have been to wait for table in main dining area away from bar. Not worth the wait. Thanks for the great visit experience! John

    Romantic restaurant in old downtown Loveland, Ohio. My wife and I have been several times and have enjoyed it every time. The food is very good and the atmosphere is warm and very nice. The service was a little slow during our last visit, but it made for a very relaxed dinner and gave us a chance to enjoy another glass of wine / beer.

    Tano is a wonderful restaurant! We are so lucky to have this restaurant in Loveland! I have been to Tano several times and the food is always perfect and the service is too! This time I ordered the eggplant Parmesan. It was better than in any Italian restaurant I have ever been to! The eggplant was crispy and the angel hair pasta was cooked perfectly. There was a wonderful sauce with this dish which I really liked also. I will be going back to Tano often!

    We were given a gift certificate so went for first time last Saturday. We ate outside on a beautiful evening. there is a lot of traffic noise but the food and service made up for it. Every item was a taste bud surprise. Crab cakes very special, we split a very tasty Tano house salad, my wife had the 3 little pigs and I had the tilapia, we shared and loved every taste, the crème Brule finished a very nice night on a high note. Will definitely return soon.

    After reading other reviews, we were expecting Tano to be a special place that was quiet and welcoming. We instead found ourselves in a quite noisy restaurant and bar crammed in a small table as the restaurant is obviously trying to maximize the number of customers it can hold. The overall quality of the food was so-so -- generally bland with no special flavor or excitement -- given the price.

    If you're expecting a neighborhood bar food joint, you'll be pleasantly surprised. The menu has a variety of offerings with more flair than most. Both our fish special's and the pork dish were good, although neither rose to our top ten list. But for the prices we paid, I expected something a little more. Tano costs, looks and feels like a gastro-pub, but the food doesn't quite make it

    Whenever we want to treat out out-of-town guests to a local great, we always take them to Tano. We are so proud of this restaurant in our hometown. The food speaks for itself, always fresh and artful. Our service is always dependable and delivered with competence and a smile. Our waitress on this evening was especially knowledgeable about wine pairings. Our table ordered the tilapia( such a great value), the salmon, and the quinoa dish. Everyone was quite satisfied with their meals. As a fan of the tilapia, I would love to see the rice come back to the plate. The potato cake was good, but it's nice to keep a healthy dish healthy. Greens were great. We also loved the mussel appetizer! See you soon!

    Cute place; good food. Was disappointed that they had Columbia River Salmon on the board but stated they were out of it. However, it remained on the board the rest of the night. Server didn't tell us until after we ordered and had to come back later to get second choice. Not good. Server had too many tables and we had trouble getting things in a timely fashion. We will try again, and hope that service is more representative of the quality of the food.

    Summer roll appetizer, white clam chowder, house salad, filet, salmon special, strawberry shortcake. All was wonderful. Steak cooked perfectly to medium rare. Chowder seemed a tiny bit salty, but we are cutting down on salt so it could have been my taste buds. Loveland is a bit of a drive for us, but we hope to return to Tano many more times. BTW, there is an invisible "No Turn on Red" sign at southbound Karl Brown and Loveland. Probably how the city pays for office parties.

    The food was excellent, the atmosphere was intimate and upscale but not to the point of being intimidating, and the staff was attentive. The only possible negative was the speed of the food delivery was a little long; however, this was not a problem for us because we met there as friends to get caught up through conversation. This is someplace you want to go when you're not in a hurry to eat and leave.

    MY favorite place to eat in Loveland , Ohio is Tano! Always fresh food, always prepared with pride , and always the way you want it. Fresh ingredients are always such a treat when dining out. When I asked to change my pasta to spinach on the Eggplant dish, the chef complied with no problem. I have never had a bad meal, and it is presented so beautifully. Best part is its so close to home! Tonight was a bit noisey but we happened to be sitting next to a table of people who were quite loud....not always the case!!

    It is not a secret that Tano's is our favorite place to eat. We booked through Open Table at 8:30, as we were just looking for a place to eat late in the afternoon. While we could have gotten in earlier since it was not packed, we were lucky enough to have Kristie as our server (she's great - ask for her if you can!). Being the picky eater I am, I asked for a salad not on the menu - and they complied, making me a nice wedge. The Mrs. had the house salad and it was to her usual liking. My wife had the salmon special and I had the Amish chicken. Both were great. For desert, we finished off with the usual flourless chocolate torte (ask for it if it isn't on the menu - it is to die for!). Chef Andrew came out to greet us as well. A+!!

    We have patronized this restaurant many times, this was the most disappointing experience to date. We were forgotten several times from the moment we were seated. Unusually, my lamb (and that of a table mate) was rather tough, and my wife's halibut dry as if under the heat lamp. Oh well, time to try something new.

    I chose Tano kind of minute for my husbands birthday. We like to say we have a restaurant bucket list but we actually just try to go to different places. Tano was amazing! We enjoyed the trio of stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer... Fresh bread and salads. My husband had the 3 Little Pigs and I enjoyed the tortilla crusted shrimp. We cleared our plates....no leftovers! We did eat outside and although it was rush hour traffic and was a little loud but it didn't take away from the enjoyment of the meal.
