    It's not that I would not recommend it... I think it's just not ready to be a dinner spot.. A late night dinner spot with party to follow yes .... But not for the 8.30pm dinner crowd... The 10.30 dinner crown will be happy here. Food was good and service was charming and friendly. Do not fault it for anything just feel it lacks a bit if warmth at dinner time.... Decor is absolutely fabulous though... Maybe the lighting? Hope they are successful.

    Malísima comida. El peor servicio. En la página ofrecen el miami spice y cuando llegas la dueña te dice que no es cierto. Le tuve que enseñar desde mi iPhone su página para que vea que ofrece el menú. Luego rogando que me sirvan moet. La comida tan fea que nos cayo mal. El día anterior comimos en el SLS x 350 dólares. Acá tuve que pagar 600 dólares y comi y me atendieron peor que en un mc donalds. Si viene a este lugar es demasiado tonto

    I came here last year and everything was perfect, so expetations were high this time. But it was nothing special. I asked for a Chianti and it took 15 minutes for the waitress to tell me they didn't have it. And she didn't offer an option. The meat was great, but for $109 (just the entrée), you can't expect less then perfection. The restaurant is famous for its Monday's after-dinner party, but this time it was half empty. Overall, just average.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/29/2013
    I recommend the Love Apple (tomato, goat cheese), King Salmon, and Grilled eggplant side. Each dish had the right amount of spices and umami. The meal was one of the best I've had in Miami. The restaurant is great for a romantic meal: dimly lit, quiet and excellent service. Dinner music was a bit odd... Indian/emo. The restaurant turns into a dance club at night after 11pm... but the place doesn't fill out until 12am so waiting after dinner was awkward. They play a mix of hip-hop/dance and hispanic/salsa music which was weird to switch between since a lot of people stopped dancing when it switched. It's a few blocks away from the main streets and the sidewalks nearby have a homeless stench. Also the exterior looks old and poorly painted.

    Our experience at Tantra was somewhat of a let-down. The food overall was good but the service was strange and especially slow. Our waitress was either new or clearly didn't have a clue about serving tables. She came back after the first course was served to ask what we ordered for the main courses. (?). Then she explained what foie gras and prawns were to us, as if we had never eaten out. Strangely she provided her opinion on both options telling us "it wasn't her preference". Overall the restaurant is beautiful but the atmosphere is ruined when you look up at the tacky TV and see strip-joint type pictures. Sexy to me, isn't having to show it all off. When I have a $40 steak, I'd prefer to see only that piece of meat in front of me.

    Had an amazing New Year's Eve meal and post meal dance party. My only gripe was the service was very slow. It took over an hour for our meals and we saw people who sat down after us get their food first. By the time we got our food it was 15 minutes until midnight. We wanted to order dessert but the dance party started at midnight and we just got too distracted by then. Would have been nice to have more time to eat and relax before the countdown. All the food was beyond amazing. One of the most decadent meals I've had in a long while. I had the lobster and truffle risotto which were beautifully served and the flavors were spot on. My friend had the sea bass. I almost had food envy when I had a bite of her meal. I'd definitely recommen

    I was excited to try the food at Tantra after friends recommended it. I however was not impressed. We went during Miamo Spice month. We ordered the surf and turf which our Waite recommended. The lobster was overbooked and the steak was very very fatty. We ordered sides since the meal did not bring them. I received flavorless spinach and my friend ordered the mashed orators. The potatoes were very good. However we spent an extra $20.00 on two sides. Really? For dessert we were presented with only one order of their 2 sided dessert. Overall. An expensive disappointment. Not worth it. Oh and the multi color pulsing lights at the bar along with the flat screen tv with bad reception made it feel like a cheap bar not culinary experience.

    I have been to Tantra several times. The food and service have always been outstanding. The dining room, music and design always promote a great experience. This Friday night was quite different. We arrived at 8pm and found the bar and dining room completely empty. The wait staff was great, and as usual, the food was also great. Considering the usual exciting vibe, it was quite a let down to be solo in the entire restaurant. I'm not sure if crowds have moved on? It is a shame if that is the case, as the scallop first course is excellent and worth the trip alone. The sea bass main course was also excellent. I hope our dinner was the exception, as I really enjoy Tantra...just prefer not to eat there alone.
