We brought visitors from New Jersey and they loved the restaurant! Half of us got the risotto and half got the espresso salmon. Both dishes were exceptional! The kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts salad has us trying to replicate it at home! Megan was a delightful, attentive server. This may be our new favorite restaurant!

1st time dining there. Did not disappoint. My wife and I had the pre fix menu paired amazingly by the sommelier.

We couldn't remember a better overall experience.

I don’t understand the point of having a reservation if I am not seated until 30 minutes after my reservation. I was told if I sat in outdoor seating while waiting, a server would be able to provide me drinks but that didn’t happen either. It also wasn’t really outdoor weather, but I wasn’t provided another option. That being said, the food was good so as long as you are able to enjoy a leisurely dinner, it’s fine.

Everything was excellent. The server suggested a bottle of wine that wasn't on the list and it was just what we were looking for. The chef also allowed one of us to switch meats on one of the dishes. I've will eat there again.

Great food and great place to meet friends! We had a party of 8 that was in separate room, which we really needed after spending a loud weekend at Power and Light district. My wine drinking friends loved the choices; I loved the crafted beverage options of being a non-wine drinker. We will be back!

The only thing I would say they could improve is portions. I was there with my girlfriend and she and I both left hungry. (She is about 110lbs) Other than that.....You have to go! You can actually have a conversation without yelling, and the staff is amazing!

We decided to go someplace new to celebrate the 45th anniversary of our first date, and this looked like it would meet that requirement. Let me state at the top that it was a good experience, and I’d certainly consider coming back. Food was very good and priced right. I’m a bit disappointed at the prices for a 5 oz pour (if that) of wine - I thought the wine prices were higher than they needed to be. Good selection, though, by the glass. We started with the warm olives and cheese appetizer - the warmth brought out the flavors of the herbs that the olives were marinated in. And, the crostini’s were thin and crisp - worked great with the cheese. We also shared the shrimp and polenta grits - very flavorful. The shrimp, while smallish (5 of them), had a beautiful taste of being grilled as well as seasoned. The polenta was very flavorful as well. The asparagus used was primarily stems, thin and perhaps a bit undercooked/reedy. Overall very tasty. We each had the burger with salad (instead of starch), and both were cooked well and tasted great. There are a number of interesting items on the menu, and our inquiries about them is what leads to my concern about the service. With a fairly limited menu, I think the servers should know everything about each dish. It was clear that was not the case with our server - either that, or he just did not want to be at work that evening. It’s a chopped up layout, and I can’t say it has a warm atmosphere to it. But, no real major issue - just didn’t wow us. If friends invited us to join them here I’d definitely go; not certain I’d make a point of being back soon.

Tannin Wine Bar and Kitchen is always warm and inviting . Especially Sunday evening when it was 10 degrees outside. The food is always just right. This night everyone commented on how the food arrived hot and in a timely manner. The wait staff is always friendly. Frequently, servers from past encounters will come and talk with us. We always enjoy our evenings at Tannin and go there frequently.

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.😣
