Tango Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We often celebrate birthdays at Tango. We love the cozy atmosphere, especially the fireplace in cold weather. The acoustics are exceptionally good in the main dining room and the room with the booths along the railroad tracks; the room used mostly for private parties is noisy if you are seated there on a busy weekend night. The food and service are always excellent. By-the-glass basic wine is pricey.
Food was delicious, varied options with across meat, poultry and seafood. Service (Vincent) was outstanding and knowledgeable; owner (Joe) stopped by to make sure we enjoyed our evening.
Trout and scallops & risotto well prepared. Wine list is strong with many glass options and flights available. Cheesecake was light and chocolate torte was decadent.
We rarely go to the same restaurant twice in a row, but Tango is an exception. Our last three out dinners were here and we are never disappointed. The menu is so varied that one can visit several times and always find something new to try. The service is outstanding, they always find us our favorite booth, and my wife loves the Mango Tango martini. Tango has become our favorite restaurant in all the Philadelphia area.
We went here for our annual birthday celebration for my wife. They were able to accommodate our request for a booth, which was appreciated. The food was amazing, as usual. The only disappointment was that the restaurant did not follow the instructions in my reservation to bring out my wife's dessert with a birthday candle. Once dessert was brought out without it, it was too late. Perhaps I should have mentioned my special request in-person, too. However, I thought my description in the reservation would have been sufficient. Lesson learned.
A nice variety of wines and meals, we split a salad and has a chicken dish and a steak dish with chosen sauce alternatives, bernaise and peppercorn cream respectively. Sides were the chorizo mashes potatoes, and roasted potatoes. All was well prepared, service was excellent
The food was barely adequate and caused "the runs" the next day. New waitress in training was OK but the regular training waitress was a bit sarcastic. Our table was literally next to the Paoli local tracks so it was too noisy.
The place was not its usual self
It was extremely busy and the wait staff was stretched too thin. They forgot our appetizer and then brought it too late. The burger was ordered medium rare and came out blood red so it had to be sent back. The rest of the party waited with our plates in front of us while the burger was recooked. It came back with the original bite taken out of it so it obviously was slapped back on the grill which is completely unhygienic. It came out without fries so there was another wait involved and when the fries arrived they were overcooked. The salad Nicoise was a disappointment. The greens were fine and the dressing was good but the tuna was tasteless and the potatoes and green beans were almost inedible. The Greek salad was ordered with salmon (medium rare) but it came out well done. The person that ordered it did not want to return it so just ate around it. It is frustrating because we want to like Tango. We had had a good experience the week before when we ate at the bar.
Perfect for our small family Thanksgiving dinner. Service was great, food came out promptly, and it was quiet enough to converse easily. The menu had a nice variety and we all agreed the food was quite tasty. Portions were variable; my husband's meal (trout) turned out to be less food than he had hoped, but my meal (jambalaya) was more than I could eat, as was the meat loaf dinner ordered by my mother-in-law. Kids menu offered a nice variety too.
We decided to dine at Tango for Thanksgiving. They did a very good job with our meals. Our adult children had steaks...they were very pleased. We had the Turkey special...quite good, except for the stuffing. Recommend they pay closer attention to that next time. The service was top notch...our server could not do enough for us and was very friendly. Try out Tango...you'll have a nice time!
Tango is a gem. Having said that, the last 3-4 times I have been there over the last few months, the service is just simply not up to par. The wait staff apparently experienced a huge turnover and inexperience is RAMPANT! I am so sorry to see this situation as the food is wonderful and CONSISTENTLY good, and I love the ambiance. I am simply mystified as to why management allows this situation to continue as the service is slow, inattentive, amateurish, and for me has consistently ruined an otherwise delightful dining experience. PLEASE FIX THIS!
The food at Tabgo is always consistently tasty. Our server was sweet & accomodating. The only glitch in our meal was waiting for a takeout platter I was bringing home. Apparently, the restaurant got busier during our meal and, as a result did not have our take out order prepared by the time we were finished eating. We had to wait an additional 20 mins for it to be ready, which was an inconvenience.
We had been longtime Tango diners, but that ended a few weeks ago with a very poor experience. First, when I asked for a burger without tomato or lettuce, the server decided to bring it without a roll. My husband's chicken quesadilla was really an odd chicken sandwich on a tortilla. When he pointed this out to a manager, the manager first said that they changed the recipe. When asked to look closer, he realized that there should have been more than chicken on the quesadilla and took it back to the kitchen to add ingredients. After 15 minutes, he returned with a revised dish, but I had been sitting there with a cooling hamburger during the re-do. The manager offered a tepid apology, and nothing more--not even a dessert or drink.
Food was not great, service not great, and management not great. After years as Tango guests, we're not going back.
The waist we had was awful. My friend asked for two simple modifications and was told "no". My prior experience over many years of coming there as just the opposite. He was rigid an d not customer service oriented. My friend ended up having to order her third choice for lunch. She had never been there and it was my choice. I was embarrassed.
Tango is consistently good food, ambiance and service. We are regulars and take people there regularly. We’ve never been disappointed!
Chefs are imaginative and food is always presented beautifully.
Thanks again Tango. We were there for my birthday celebration.
I've been to Tango before and had much better meals. Our reservation was for 7 PM on a Sunday. The restaurant was busy and our server was quite distracted. It took a long time to get our drinks, and it was about 30 minutes before our appetizers arrived. My companions both ordered the mushroom soup which was delicious. I tried a special crab tempura appetizer which was just OK. Service My entree was the grilled trout. It was dried out and tasted like it was cooked hours before and just warmed up before being served. My side of rice was so undercooked I didn't ea it. I have had much better food here previously so I wondered if the issue was how late we were dining on a Sunday - we were just about the last to leave since our meal took so long to be served.
My husband and I were given a gift card for tango. We went there on a Friday night for 8 reservation. The bar was nice and drinks were good. it was all downhill from there. My husband ordered a steak with chimichurri. Steak was cooked ok but not seasoned at all and was given salsa instead and when pointed it out the waitress said that was the chimichurri sauce. Chimichurri is extremely different than salsa. The mash potatoes with with chorizo did not resemble any form of potato by taste or texture. It was quite strange and inedible. I got a kale salad with shrimp which was ok, but shrimp we're very overdone. The service was good but due to the poor quality of the food we will not be back.
excellent food and service. The location is unique, and as explained the building was once a storage facility for the main line train. The interior is very pleasant and only one wall is exposed to the original original stone, presumably set by a stone mason. We 'd be glad to return any time.
We had an 11:30 Sunday brunch reservation which was timely honored. The bloody marys were perfect and the food delicious. Tango was not crowded so noise was not an issue. The only part of the experience which could have been improved was the service, especially in light of the fact that it was not busy.
