    Food was good, a little less than expected when meals are catered to being shareable. Drinks were a bit sweet for me, my date enjoys sweet drinks so it was on point for them. Service was good, he explained the menu to us which was a big help. 5 stars there. Definitely loud and space is intimate so you will be close to other patrons unless you’re in a booth. All in all I enjoyed myself, and my date enjoyed themselves as well. Food was good, service was exceptional. Recommended for sure.

    Requested high-top table seating to be separated from others but were sat at a low-top table nestled between two large parties. Main courses were not served simultaneously. Our main server only came by to take orders. However, the water serve was attentive and the food server delivered the food while it was still hot,

    Valentine’s Day dinner…$89 prefix meal. Stuck upstairs in the bar area…WTF is that??? Feel completely ripped off. Food was ok , way too much sauce on the plates. Atmosphere was horrible and completely different then any posted pictures of the restaurant. I wouldn’t go back if they paid me. What a rip off.

    Great dinner at Tanta! The service was FANTASTIC. Both insightful and helpful. All the servers were very attentive. The food was WONDERFUL. We had lots of different shared plates throughout the evening and that is definitely a great way to experience the breadth of Peruvian food that Tanta has to offer. We'll definitely be back.

    Vibe inside is very casual. Our server disappeared halfway through our meal when we wanted to order another round of drinks and more food. Food was good, but not what I’d expect for this price range. In a city full of great food, I’d opt for other options.

    Had not been there for a while and decided to stop in. George at the door was very gracious, asked us to wait at the bar for our table. Got us seated within 10 minutes of our arrival. Pisco sours that we ordered were a great way to start our experience. Once seated the server went over the menu. Helped us choose our apps and entrees. Everything was coursed out, we never waited for anything. Pulpo and ceviche was some of the best I ever had. Arroz and mariscos was excellent as well. Can’t wait to go back!

    The service was next level!! The waiter was wonderful and they always had your water filled / plates cleared. The food and drinks were really good. We loved the tapas set up. My only “negative” feedback is the design / ambiance of the place does not feel like something that you would pay 50+ a person at. I think if they designed it more formal instead of high level diner feel it would be perfect. I would definitely recommend! I will be back for sure!

    Service was excellent. Food positives: Cebiche Trio, pulpo and adobo were all excellent. Food negatives: Chaufa aeropuero was extremely salty - not good. Also, both of our desserts were average and wish we had not ordered them. Overall, recommend but do not think it’s a good value and wouldn’t go back on that alone. Portions overall are all small for the amount they charge. For what we paid everything should have been a home run.

    Great Peruvian cuisine. Highly recommend the ceviche clásico made with corvina fish. The chaufa aeropuerto is a great fried rice Peruvian style. Lomo saltado was good. Anticuchos were on point. However, the pollo ala brasa was not too great, but decent enough. Great ambient , I really enjoy the rooftop.

    We had some of the most efficient and attentive service that we’ve had a restaurant in a long time. We went for restaurant week, and were very pleased with our choices. Everything was delicious! We don’t typically get dessert, but their passion fruit cheesecake is amazing. I highly recommend Tanta.
