This was the second day after Ohio permitted restaurants to reopen. Social distancing, etc. so the atmosphere was not as exciting as it could have been. They did fine keeping us apart from other diners and protecting themselves. It appears they removed tables to implement social distancing. They were ready for us at the time of my reservation.

Because they had just reopened, the menu was still being firmed up and the servers were apologetic, but they did great. There were some dishes that were not available by 7:30, but what was left was still quite good. Overall, they did a great job even not considering that they had been up and running for a little over 24 hours.

Service was very good. The bar was good (got a Lagavulin!) The mussel appetizer was generous; the nachos were unexciting. Two of us had salmon, which was done very well; I forget what my friend had but he thought it was excellent. Portions were a LITTLE small but not tiny. Dessert was decadent.

Hard to gauge the value because my friend picked up the check, but the entrees were $25-35.

We will be back.

I wish they had a couple of more normal dishes for folks who are a little pickier. I got a cobb salad with steak on it and it was $22 , the steak was very good on the salad but the salad was not anything special and for the money it wasn't worth it. Not sure I would go back. It just wasn't my kind of food. If you like a very gourmet type food this is for you!

Reservation time means nothing. We were late to be seated. Against the wall, near the exit door, the rest of the restaurant hidden from us by a large party was not the way we had hoped to spend our anniversary dinner. We could hardly hear each other, it was not what we'd hoped to experience.

Just a bad experience. Waited 1hr. and 15min and decided to leave. Menu wasn't much to choose from and over priced. Appetizer was so so.
Also too noisy.
Manager came out with our food as we were leaving. He apologized and boxed our food. I'll say the salmon I had was very good.

Everything that we tried was very good. The Sprout & Snout appetizer was delicious, and both main dishes that we had were wonderful. (We had the scallops & the short rib.) The chef came out & spoke with people to make sure they were happy with their food, which I appreciated. We definitely enjoyed our first visit to Tano, and we plan to dine there again.

Love the addition of Tano's to Hamilton, a much needed and appreciated farm to table style restaurant. The decor and ambience is very nice and relaxing. The food and drinks are done so well, definitely a place for foodies, the flavors in their dishes all meld together so well. I never worry that it won't taste good, the chef Tano knows what he's doing! We went on Valentine's Day and the desserts were so original, they have a person who does all the desserts there in house, and I haven't seen those anywhere else.

The food is the stand-out at Tano's. We went for Valentine's Day and this was the first time we had been there. I was a little put off in to start because we were seated at a high-top in the bar. It was noisy with ESPN on the tv. Not much Valentine's Day atmosphere. I was afraid this was one of those special occasion dinners that have overpriced, foo-foo meals to take advantage of patrons who will probably never return. How wrong I was! The appetizer (spinach dip) was the absolute best I have ever eaten, rich and cheesy. My new york strip steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned to perfection. My husband's filet oscar was equally as good. The desserts were amazing as well, beautifully presented and delicious. Rick, our server, was warm and friendly and we felt like we knew him forever. The prices were reasonable and seemed like a deal for the high-quality of the dishes. We met the owner and chef Gaetano and gave him our compliments on a fabulous experience. We will definitely return. Tano's is a wonderful addition to Hamilton.

There was a rose on every table!! (It was Valentine's Day.) The decor is wonderful. The wallpaper on the end of the room looks like a forest. The waitress was very attentive. The manager even came by to talk. I had the quinoa bowl and it was the best I have ever had, with fresh green beans, asparagus, chicken and mushrooms, plus the quinoa. My husband had a sandwich and his was good too. This was lunch. We want to go back for sure!

Food was outstanding...ambience was modern elegant. Service was good, checked back, drink refills all good but just not very engaging and didnt know how to describe the dessert when asked. However she was sweet enough and food was served piping hot.

My wife and I had a couple of beers, salad, meal and split a dessert...$100 w/o tip BUT IMO, it was a great value...food was terrific...best meal I've had in a long time.

This was our first visit and will not be our last! The food was delicious and perfectly prepared (scallops cooked perfectly, my husband’s steak was done to his preference). We ordered decaf coffee after dinner and not only was it brewed fresh- our server even ground the beans to make it. Our meal was a bit pricey, but there are a range of options on the menu that keep it lower.
