Although the review may seem bad on the surface, Tannin is a good place to socialize and have a glass a wine. Just not a place to go for a good dinner. We arrived and were sat at a table which was lopsided and no candle. We asked if we should move to a better table and the server said- hold on- I got this and moved a wedge under one of the legs of the table. Never had a candle put at our table. The server was attentive and knowledgeable about the wines. The food was very small portions and did not have a lot of flavor. We saw the table next to us ordered the cheese plate and wine and realized we missed the true calling for the restaurant. Wine was good (but pricey). We would go there again for wine but not for dinner.

My girlfriend and I went for Valentine’s Day. It was a great experience with a delicious soup and steak. I rate the service low not because they weren’t attentive or kind, but they were particularly slow. I’m unsure if it was because it was busier than normal, but each stage of our meal took quite a while to reach us.

My boyfriend and I had Valentine’s Day dinner here this year. They had a special menu for the evening, and the food was outstanding! Our waitress was exceptional as well - very knowledgeable about the wines and food and made our night fun. We always have great experiences at Tannin, and will certainly be back again.

For the price the 3 course Valentine's menu was not appealing. The steak was fatty, and the cous cous was mushy. We spent $200 and expected a better experience. The drinks were very strong though. Maybe to drown out the bad food.😣

Airline chicken was delicious. Mole sauce was very good. Not like mom’s but a close second. The chicken was moist and the skin was crispy. Nice treat. Server was great about pairing wine with our dinner choices. We’ll be back!

The wine cellar has an excellent range of American and European varietals to choose from and the wait staff are knowelgeable about their offerings. W e have also found their descriptions of suggested alternatives to our personal selections to be useful and remarkably accurate. This holds true for their “wine flights” as well. Their food deserves a slightly higher end set of offering that more creatively complements the wine offerings. Still overall, the food selections were very good. ChefBert

We had a great evening before a show at the Kauffman center. Kelsey was our server. She was super fun and easy to talk to. The wine options are fantastic! Barry the wine man, came and told us about all the wine we were sampling and answered questions. We will be back. Oh, the food was terrific too.

This was our first visit to Tannins. The service was very slow it took 15 minutes just to get our initial drink order. We were there for restaurant week and ordered from that menu and it took a long time for the food to come out as well. The artichoke dip and pita chips was good and the fudge stuffed peanut butter cookie was amazing. However I had the risotto with scallops. Very disappointed as the risotto was really bland and the 3 scallops were very thin as if cut in half. Nice atmosphere but didn’t quite hit the mark on food and service.

We always head here for the expansive wine selection and appetizers - especially when the patio is open. We rarely think to go for dinner, but I don’t know why not! It has been consistently delicious every time we eat a full meal. The scallops and the lamb were perfectly cooked. The seasoning was well balanced and the sides were great accompaniments. We wrapped up with our go to affogato. Ask to add a shot of Licor 43 to it- you can thank me later! We’ll definitely be adding Tannin in to the regular rotation.

Service was s-l-o-w and the food did not make up for it. Our server showed up quite awhile after we were sat, and after pouring our wine didn’t show up to our table for so long that we had to flag someone down to order food. A different server brought our food (which is fine), but when we immediately realized that our pommes frites were not salted our server never showed up to ask how our food was. Eventually I had to walk up to the bar to ask for a salt shaker. Server essentially showed up at end of meal to collect the check. Food was meh for a $100 bill, and poor service was simply inexcusable.

Made reservation ahead of time because it was my wife's birthday but the couldn't find our reservation which meant there was no sense this was a special occasion. Parking was terrible. Had to park a long way Way even though we dined early, 5:00. Our waiter brought us plates , I think it was for bread but we never got bread. The plates and butter knife just sat there for the whole meal. Our waiter seemed a bit distant from us, like it was a job. The food was good. My steak was supposed to be medium well but was pretty charred on the outside. You do cater to a pretty broad group of people which was good. My experience wasn't the best though.
