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.

We carried four children under 12 and four adults for an early dinner. Staff was very attentive to all. Brought kids' meals before adults, which helped a lot. menu was varied and had something for all. plus it was in the neighborhood.

The service was very very slow. The food took for ever to come out and was cold. When I told the server she did not even offer to bring it back to the kitchen. I asked for a manager. When I spoke him he he really didn’t care.

A good meal overall, and my wife was disappointed in the sauce on the spinach and artichoke hearts in her scallops selection. The scallops were wonderful, and the vinegar in the sauce on the veggies was overdone.

We were not seated in the small room we had requested because it had been reserved previously. But the hostess gave us a special table in the back. We were not rushed and the server was very accommodating as we waited for late comers and again at the end of the meal. She handled the birthday cake for us and it was beautifully served.

Service was awesome. I have been to Tango many times. I was truly disappointed with the food this time. I had the omelet special and it was dry and overcooked. Everyone else said their food was mediocre. I hope things get better as I like coming to Tango and have for many years. Lisa Czyzewski

Superior as always. I have eaten here several hundred times since it opened. Excellent menu items diverse enough to satisfy most tastes, always prepared consistently to high standards using highest quality ingredients at reasonable prices.

Best cream of mushroom, black bean soups, gazpacho, vichysoisse and New England Clam Chowder.

Excellent friendly service and very attractive & comfortable ambience.

Tango is a great spot for lunch or dinner in Bryn Mawr, PA. I like sitting in a booth and watching the trains wiz by, very fun.

Food is also very good. I stick to basic fare. It's also convenient for my friends and colleagues from Philly because they hop on the train for the short ride to join me in the suburbs. Parking is also convenient and with no charge to do so.

I dine here often.

I had the Caesar salad with grilled chicken for lunch which I had to to saw in pieces with the dull butter knife. The salad on a whole was just okay... nothing specisl or tasty. I also ordered coffee, which tasted like it was on the burner for hours.
Overpriced for the quality and portions served.
The service was pretty good and the ambience too.
I would not recommend and would not return.
Choose this restaurant based on the many options and good reviews.

We arrived around 4:15 pm for a 6:00 pm to enjoy "happy hour" at the bar, as the friends we were meeting did not drink. Unfortunately, when we ordered our cocktails, Mike (the bartender) said he didn't have the ingredients behind the bar .. then just stood there. Assuming he wanted us to select something else, we went down the list until there was a drink he could make. Did not leave a good impression -- fortunately, once our friends arrived and we were seated, the meal was "to die for." You just need to better stock the bar.

Tango has gone back to their previous menu, which I like a whole lot more than the last iteration they tried. Their food is great, and the atmosphere can't be beat. My husband and I really like their individual drink shakers, that they leave with you, so you can get every last drop of liquid out of the shaker. It's wonderful place to come and relax, and the price is right - although their food is really good, they don't have the overinflated prices of many so-called 'high-end' restaurants, and yet Tango is equally as good as many of them. Keep up what you're doing.

It’s really between a 3 and 4 star experience. I always enjoy the ambiance at Tango and our waiter Nick was fun, funny, and very helpful. The bread is always a treat, the ahi tuna is great. The fried oyster appetizer was great. The bouillabaisse was in a kind of brown sauce that we didn’t think was so great though. And the cost seemed a bit high for the meal.

Restaurant smelled of bleach/ cleaner upon entering.
Waiter dropped silverware into glass of water and wasn’t very apologetic, accidents happen but you must apologize.
Salad was crappy, Brown ice burg lettuce....in the Cobb
Cauliflower steak was good, but drenched in oil..
