Diner Reviews
  • "We did not know that Tantra is closing soon and will become a French bistro. We walked into an empty restaurant at 7:00 pm and it was empty except for the two of us for most of our meal. Because it was going through a "soft close," the menu was significantly reduced from what is on the we Same for the wine list. I certainly would t go back until after they transform I to the new restaurant."

  • "Was my first time here and it was beautiful. Staff was very attentive and friendly. I had the salmon and it was delicious. Too bad they will be closing, but I'm looking forward to their reopening as french steakhouse!"

  • "Seated quickly. Beautiful restaurant, delicious food, SLOW but courteous service. We waited a long time for someone to come take our order and then waited another long period of time for them to give us the check and ANOTHER long wait to pick it back up. However, they didn't hesitate to pick up the empty plates from our table as we devoured each course :)"

  • "My wife and I had a very early Saturday evening reservation, dinner before a show at the Fox. We were one of three parties there (it was only 5:30) so I can't say the rating for noise is truly indicative of the dinner rush. Howevah, while I was expecting good things based on the reviews, my expectations were far exceeded. Just starting with the cocktails, you know you're in for some imaginative tastes as you proceed into the menu. Starters were fantastic. The entrees were equally great and mysteriously delicious. The wine list is a bit limited, but our choices were excellent. Will definitely be visiting here frequently."

  • "This was my second visit to Tantra, my first time was for a Christmas party a couple years ago. I had a blast the first time I came, the food was amazing, the wine list was pretty extensive. So that is why I was so disappointed to see that most of what I had ordered before was not listed and they had downsized the wine list. The food was good the second time, but not quite the same! Now service was on point! Our server Kevin was so nice, he new the menu very well and made some good recommendations for dinner. He was very up beat, attentive, comical and just overall taking care of everything concerning our dining experience."

  • "We were DISSAPOINTED in receiving the bill - my husband wine was charged $14.oo vs mine at $7.00. When we pointed it out the waiter said that they only carry one kind of Chardonnay, hence, the high price. He should have said so when he was taking the order. Waiters should be properly trained to point out such difference."

  • "Tantra will not be seeing me ever again. I made a reservation because I knew the place was pretty small, I wasn't seated until 30 mins after. Decided to go to the bar to have drinks while we waited, sat there for about 10 mins and was never greeted or served. Our server forgot about my drink order, left our dirty dishes on our table for way longer than I would like to look at them, dropped our check to never return. We had to hail down another server to process our payment. The PEI mussels were pretty good and the braised chicken and lamb chops were nice and tender. Food was surprisingly good, and restaurant was nice and cozy but not good enough for me to ever go again."

  • "Note. The restaurant is right next to Imperial Fez. Valet staff were very polite. Two sets of doors to reach hostess stand on right. They are very accommodating with seating preferences. My wife and I were rookies to Tantra. Our server Kevin was very friendly and knowledgable and made great reccomendations. We will request him again. I had a beet salad on his reccomendation ( a first for me ) that was delicious. My entree, Scallops were superb, as the wife's salmon was delicious. We will be back to enjoy this gem again."

  • "My friends and I went to Tantra on Friday 2/21/14 to celebrate a birthday. The first thing I noticed was the chic, alluring atmosphere. We were greeted warmly. The menu offered a variety of food and beverage options to please every palate. Our server was excellent and knowledgable about all the menu items. The only negative was the very loud, mediocre live music. The volume was over powering, making dinner conversation difficult. The size of the space is not suitable for loud music during dinner hours. Perhaps later in the evening, it would be appreciated. I look forward to going back, but I'll choose a night that doesn't have live music."

  • "My girlfriend and I ate at Tantra to celebrate Valentine's day. When you walk in through the double doors it's like you've been transported to the Mediterranean. The vibe is just awesome. Its very quite and dark so this makes for a very intimate setting. Tantra is perfect for a special date. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. She paired the wine perfectly and really made our experience. The food was great. The lamb was cooked perfectly! Get the eggplant fries! They're crackalackin! I had the pork shoulder and it had excellent flavor but was a tad dry. I would still recommend it. The deck looks awesome. It's too bad it was cold and we couldn't enjoy it. The parking is Valet and they have coat check."

  • "We went to Tantra the day after Valentine's Day. This was my first time visiting this restaurant. We had reservations and waited approximately 5-10 minutes before we were seated. Out server/waitress was very attentive (Chelsea, I believe). The food was great, the atmosphere was great. I would recommend this restaurant as a romantic get away. Enjoyed the experience and would definitely go back."

  • "My fiancé and I had Valentine's Day dinner here. The food was Amazing! The only negative was dessert. I didn't care for the red velvet chocolate cake cake (too runny) and the chocolate covered strawberries were dipped too many times. So, the chocolate was a little over powering. Having said that, everything else was very enjoyable! There was a live soft jazz band playing which really created a very romantic and relaxing vibe. I would definitely go back!"

  • "In from Dallas & It happened to be valentines day. So i looked on the web and chose tantra - becausae of location & reviews. Everything was spot on. From the appetizers through the main meal and introducer was very consistent. Being that it was Valentine's Day, I should've thought that it was going to be a select menu-and it was… But many choices. The muscles in Spicy broth were to die for! Just make sure you request a spoon so you can slop up all the broth ;-) glazed beat salad with seasonal greens was very light crisp and fresh. chicken and lamb dishes were very good. And you won't regret the desserts-make sure you save room. Bartender was very polite as was the rest of the staff."

  • "Have been to Tantra several times. Went the other night and was disappointed by the changed menu and poor service. We had a reservation and had to wait 20 minutes for our table. It seems that they are understaffed. We will be hesitant to return any time soon."

  • "This restaurant provided the worst service of all Atlanta restaurants I have ever experienced. At the beginning the waitress was very nice to take our orders, she disappeared afterwards. Bread was never served during our meal while all other tables sported a large bread bucket. We started to ask for bread, but a walking-by waitress told us that she was not our server. We waved and make noise tI did like this quite romantic restaurant along with its food and jazz singer, but the service was the worst I have ever experienced in any Atlanta restaurants.o seek help, but all staff walking-by pretending not seeing or hearing from us. Finally the Host came to notify us that our server was the Bartender and she was busy at the bar."

  • "The back area of the restaurant must back up to the kitchen. She stated it felt like someone was hitting the wall while she was sitting in a booth. Had to return my steak because the first one was very tuff. Second one was much better but my wife had already finished her plate."

  • "Let me just say that Chelsie is one of the BEST servers I ever came across. She knows her stuff and it's a genuine type of service she gives. I've travelled all over the world and dined at top restaurants and Chelsie can work in any one of them (in my opinion). Now to the food, the lamb with the hummus was pretty good for starters. The wine selection is limited but reasonably priced and not bad wine....The chicken entree was nice and moist...sauce does not accompany it tho...I suggest an Indian like curry or something...other than that overall the experience was good. Oh and the white chocolate cake was delicious an recommended by Chelsie."

  • "Unless you are going to scream, then I dont think you should go to this restaurant. I had a hard time with my wife listening to each other. The food is not very good as well. The chairs are not comfortable particularly the ones in the middle of the restaurant. Dont get me wrong, but some people will like this restaurant, particularly if they are a very large group that would just like to scream at each other thinking they have fun this way."

  • "We were in Atlanta for business and fun for my family and found this place via GroupOn. A short drive from downtown to Buckhead area, the restaurant was very quiet the night we dined. We practically had the place to ourselves. The menu offers a variety of what they call Persian/Indian influenced appetizers, mains and deserts. The food came out fast, the service was spot on and everything tasted very good, seasoned well as expected with the Indian influence and the overall experience was great. Paired with a couple glasses of wine the ambience and dining was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something outside the normal steak house experience. 4 stars out of five."

  • "We have been to Tantra several times and have enjoyed it each time. The food this time was even better than usual. We started off with a favorite of ours, the salmon popadom tacos and a delicious eggplant dip. The branzino main course was outstanding. The skin of the fish crispy, while the flesh was perfectly cooked. It was accompanied by clams, dal and a carrot-tumeric broth - delicious!! My wife had the seared scallops, which were also cooked beautifully. At our last couple of visits the restaurant has featured a couple of excellent jazz singers, which really adds to the ambience. Overall, a great experience."

  • "My husband and I visited Tantra the weekend before Christmas, and I guess it was not the best night, because the restaurant was near empty, and very quiet. The menu looked very interesting, but I was not at all wowed by what I ordered (Lamb Sirloin). My husband ordered scallops and they were great. The service was slow, considering there were only two other parties in the restaurant, and the music was extremely low. The ambience is nice, the restaurant looks like such a cute place, but I will not be visiting again."
