Staff is super friendly and food was very good across many menu items. Small bites and apps are great and good variety to full menu. Kids menu exists but you have to ask and they don’t actually have a printed one and do not have kids activity like drawing so bring something to entertain the little ones.

Service, food & ambience was phenomenal. Manager/Host greeted us better than we’ve been at similar style locations. Staff in bar area was exceptional. It was a great pleasure when the Executive Chef came out to our table just to ask how our meal was. WOW we’re we impressed.

We were really excited to try out a new place in Hamilton. 7:00 reservations. We didn’t get seated until 7:40. Manager let us order drinks from the bar. The food was great, atmosphere pleasant.

Food was great and the service was great. However, I agree with some of the other diners in that the lighting could be softer and the chairs could be more comfortable.

Tano offers responsibly sourced food, expertly prepared, in a nice local venue with top notch service. Tano Hamilton offers one of the best Sunday brunches we have had in a long time. We will definitely return.

We went Friday night for our anniversary. Our server Liz was very sweet and helpful. The food was very, very good! Pricing on food was in line with its quality but the pricing on alcohol was a little steep in my opinion. Definitely will be going back and a great atmosphere in the heart of Hamilton!!!

We love Tano and will eat here over and over and over. One comment on the ambiance - the lighting is way too bright. As the evening settled in it would be really nice to dim the can lighting. I have heard this from many people so it is just not me. There are lots of hard surfaces here and softening the light level would really help to create the upscale dining experience that the decor suggests.

We had a party of 7 as guests of Patty Woodall. Restaurant was new to 4 of us. We ordered a variety of appetizers, entree’s (all cooked to perfection) and drinks (Marcum Mash cocktail was a big hit). Chef Gaetano stopped by, which enhanced the experience even further. Service was amazing! Nice to have a terrific new restaurant in area.

This was our fourth visit to Tano since they opened. Have yet to be disappointed. Great food, service and fast becoming a favorite go to place. The Salmon is outstanding and so are the salads small plate offerings and desserts. Love Tano !!! Thanks for coming to Hamilton.

Love having this wonderful dining option in Hamilton! Food and service was great. My only suggestion is the lighting was too bright for a nice ambiance. Softer lighting...maybe table lamps or candles??...would be nice. But an overall great experience!

Very nice service and very nice venue in Hamilton. I do believe the food is overly priced for the amount of food you receive. I will go back, but I will be selective on what I order.

Great restaurant. Went there on an extremely busy Saturday evening (with reservations through open table) and were seated immediately! Great start, especially for a new establishment. The menu is chef inspired and ranges from sandwiches to meals. Our meals were great, but the dessert stole the show! It was a Strawberry Pistachio Chiffon and was heavenly.

Went for a peaceful setting and good food. Both of which we got, add the good service from the staff and it was a total success. I never rate anyone or thing perfect so 4 of 5 stars is my best rating.

This was our second visit and the food was lovely. It was well prepared. There were three of us and each person got a different dish. Everyone enjoyed the food and experience. Wine selection was a bit limited but the Pinot Noir we enjoyed was superior.

Everything was wonderful. The portions may be on the small side for some people but not for me. I care more about quality of food and every bite was delicious.
The staff gave personal , immediate , welcoming service.
This location is new so outside seating not set up yet and it needs some quality paintings on the wall. I would love to decorate the place myself! 😂
It’s great to have such a fine establishment in Hamilton Ohio. Highly recommend.

The food was decent. It has some room for improvement. Would like to see more gluten free options! Service was ok, nothing negative to say. Decor looked unfinished - bare walls. It was super bright in the restaurant at dinner time, which gave off a hotel restaurant vibe. Two cocktails, an appetizer and entree worked out to be almost $60 before tip, so it’s not an inexpensive place and could really add up for a family. I only say that as a heads up, although I don’t think it’s a negative. Overall it was good. I got the spinach dip and it was sort of odd. A yellow cheese base, as opposed to the standard cream cheese & mozzarella & Parmesan. Didn’t seem to have artichoke in it. Just spinach and liquidy yellow cheese of some sort. My entree was the quinoa and rice bowl, I added steak. It was extra to add steak and it didn’t come with a very substantial amount of meat.

Tano Bistro of Hamilton exceeded the expectations of our party of four who was seated promptly at our reserved time. We were waited on by Jessica who did a great job all the way around. Our drink orders came promptly from the bar and everyone was thrilled with their meal.
We openend with the adult tater tots- yummy! We also enjoyed the candied bacon but was dissatisfied with its lack of crispness.
Dinner included surf and turf which was melt in your mouth braised short ribs served over delicious lobster ravioli. My wife’s pork chop over cheese grits was to die for. Our friends enjoyed the perfectly seasoned and cooked filet mignon and the crab stuffed salmon over hand mashed potatoes served wit tasty asparagus.
We’re all anxious to return and heard the water buffalo burger is a hit. Thanks for coming to Hamilton Gaetano! Bravo!
