I’ve eaten here many times and brought a group of friends, it took an hour and 20 minutes to get appetizers another 25 minutes for food and we were late for our show. The manager was friendly but our server was terrible. The desserts were ok...cookie was burnt

Everything about Tannin wine bar & kitchen was excellent. My husband & i came here for dinner before going to the trans Siberian orchestra. I had the tuna and he had the pork chop. Both were excellent along with their crab dip for appetizer and pound cake for dessert. Their wine recommendations and tastings were excellent & the waitress was knowledgeable about their wines. We will be returning!

The restaurant is cozy. The food was delivered to the table just as described on the menu. The gouda cheese flight, salmon main dish, and ahi tuna main dish were prepared perfectly. When reviewing the wine list, the content is tops in choice with exquisite vineyards to choose from including local vineyards.
Michael, our waiter, was engaging and was able to answer every question put to him since this was our first time at the restaurant.
The only slight hiccup of the night was that our table was not ready for us when we had reserved it since the people who had the table before us took a little longer to finish their meal and subsequent conversation. The staff were very polite and requested that we have a seat at the front of the house where we shared a glass of wine or water and good conversation.

I love a good prix fixe that's paired with awesome wine, and that's exactly what I got here. The waiter was very down-to-earth and friendly, and very accommodating with any special requests on the wine pairings suggested with the three-course tasting menu. You are presented with different options for each course: I had the crab dip (good but a bit salty), the prime rib (cooked beautifully!), and the very tasty peach ice cream dessert. The somm was very friendly and knowledgeable as well, and provided details about each of the wines he poured; I thought the pairings were spot-on. Overall a fantastic pre-Kauffmann concert experience, and one I highly recommend!

This was one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. The service was impeccable, the sommelier was informative and down to earth. The wine pairings gave us an elevated appreciation for the way wine and food can enhance each other. And I had the best ribeye of my life.

Food was great and restaurant was really nice. We had a very bizarre server, he tried to charge us for an appetizer we didn't order and then reacted oddly when we asked about it on our bill. Would go again, but would just request a different server.

We were wowed again at Tannin. We decided to stop in for a bite on our Anniversary, and we were not disappointed. We were promptly seated, congratulated on our anniversary, and given a glass of bubbly (quite good by the way) as a compliment. Our small plates and dessert were amazing as usual. I wish we had decided to come back for the second night in a row!

We have been to Tannin now multiple times. This restaurant has an incredible atmosphere and ambiance. The menu is very well thought out and quite tasty. If you like, they have a tasting menu that is either 3 course or 4 course and can be paired with 1/2 glass of wine or full glass of wine for a very reasonable price. They have quite an extensive wine menu and one of the largest by the glass menu's I have yet seen. The director of wine, Barry, is extremely well versed in all the wines they serve at the restaurant and will give explicit details about the wine, region it is from, the climate, and what to look for when you taste the wine. Even when Barry is not available, he has adequately prepared his staff with the knowledge of the wines to assist in choosing just the right wine for your meal. The service is well above average and the chefs are willing to accommodate any special needs. All I can say is, if you haven't tried this restaurant in the Crossroad you need to get down there and give it a try.

There were 3 of us, one of whom is a bit hearing impaired. We asked for a booth first, but there was a large group and it was noisy at that table. Our hostess was accommodating, and allowed us to check out another indoor table, but the noise level was still significant so we opted for an outdoor table. There was music, but per our request it was turned down and a more quiet musical genre was tuned in. The service was good, as was the wine, though the parmesan "tart" two of us ordered was dry and flavorless (and not a tart, more like small biscuits). It was one of my companion's birthday, and we were brought a taste of champagne in celebration which was a nice touch. Overall, it was a very good experience, and enjoyable ambiance. I will return.

The young lady who brought us water refills was right on the money, every time. The food was good, although the appetizer we had (grilled plate) seemed to consist of mostly brussel sprout shells (hard outer layer) than anything else. Could have used more white sauce as well.
