    We were able to grab an early seating for dinner. We had a good experience & I’d recommend the food items we chose. Oysters bordelaise, four cheese ravioli, blue crab and squid ink fusilli.

    My dining experience at TANA was truly exceptional. From the moment we entered, the welcoming atmosphere and attentive staff made us feel right at home. The menu offered a delightful array of dishes, each expertly crafted with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Every bite was a culinary delight, and I can’t wait to return to TANA to explore more of their delicious creations. Highly recommended!”

    Personnel were great, food was very good but the squid was cold and fishy tasting. It was removed from the bill, but no one ask if we wanted another dish. Which we would have ordered.

    Only complaint I have is the noise. It is too loud for conversation. Food, service and staff are excellent. I would like to have had better acoustics for the price I paid for dinner and not so much background noise. Also the decaf coffee was very watery. Decaf cappuccino with expresso beans was very good.

    Our experience was ruined by poor etiquette from the staff. My husband and I were asked to leave by the manager to accommodate another party. We had been at our reserved table for less than 2 hours. The dining experience was fine until we were rudely interrupted. I will not be returning to Tana for this reason alone.

    Tana is a beautiful restaurant with a lovely bar area. Food was excellent; The squid ink pasta was delicious. The meatball appetizer was also very good. Service was good. As the restaurant filled up, our servers seemed to be covering many tables and were unable to be as attentive toward the end of the meal. But, it didn't take away from the evening. I will definitely be back.

    Delicious food. Great service, Jason and Johnathon were very attentive. Very loud in the dining room. You’re seated very close along the banquette seat. The stuffed focaccia was very hard to eat, too tough to cut with the knife. Similar to a muffelatta. The veal Marsala and meatballs and pasta were yummy. The hazelnut and blueberry cake was beautiful. Complimentary valet parking makes parking easy. I would recommend. I will probably return with more than two guests in order to have a private table next time.

    I never usually write reviews on restaurants, but we had an amazing experience at Tana for my husband’s birthday dinner! Everything we ordered was spectacular (meatball appetizer, cheese wheel pasta, radiatore, tiramisu, limoncello lemon drop martini, cat 504 drink, and espresso martini)!! The cheese wheel pasta experience was amazing. The chef came over to our table and asked us how spicy we wanted it, if we had any allergies, or if we wanted to add anything to it. He was awesome! We are already trying to figure out when to go back. Service was amazing and the ambiance is just beautiful! Highly recommend! Also, I expected the ambiance to be very formal, so we dressed for that, but there seemed to be a large variety in what everyone was wearing. We saw a few people in jeans and some in dresses. Nobody looked over or under dressed or out of place. I know I am always trying to figure out what to wear to a new place so I wanted to add that in!

    Went to the trading menu for TANA when it was at May Pop. My wife got the pro chop Parmesan and absolutely loved it. The size of a small tennis racket, and great flavor. When we went to TANA she was excited about getting it again. Not the same. Still huge but the flavor was not there. Maybe some red gravy to dip, not sure. Hoping it’s was just a busy night with jazz fest
