It was Bayle’s birthday
Loved the food, service and atmosphere!
Dinner was great. We were able to sit up on the roof. Staff was super accommodating. The service was awesome. It wasn’t the most comfy cozy outdoor table seating but it was fine. Atmosphere and drinks were great too.
Great food and exceptional service! We were 20 minutes late for our reservation because of traffic and they still put us at a great table by the window! Pollo ala brasa was just delicious and they made me the Friday night seafood special (Plancha Prawns) even tho it was Thursday night! We’ll be back for sure!
Amazing atmosphere, great rooftop, food was outstanding and every bite, and service was excellent as well as accommodating! I will definitely be a repeat offender here☺
What a gem of a discovery. Try to get a roofdeck seat!
The food was incredible.
The rooftop is fantastic and the food is amazing! Great restaurant
Can’t wait to go to the room top in the summer! !!!!!
Excellent food, service was exceptional. Definitely going back!
Wonderful flavorful food. I loved the salmon dish that was served with a curry coconut milk sauce. Definitely will return to this restaurant again.
Extremely knowledgeable service, delicious and unique dishes with fresh ingredients.
This may be one of the best restaurants in Chicago. It has such unique flavor and the quality of food is amazing.
Great intro to many typical types of Peruvian food, with great ingredients and some extra refinement. If you can sit on the roof top (which has an awning when weather gets Chicago-ish), do so. Service is friendly, patient and informative. Great cocktails feature traditional pisco and enough beer, wine and other drinks for everyone in your group (great place for small groups. Dishes all set up for sharing). Save room for dessert. Now the thing about sharing the dishes, mostly you get one or two bites and while the quality and execution are great, you're paying around $5/bite for most dishes if there are 4 of you. But you'll be learning whether you've had Peruvian food before or not.
Server was not very attentive or enthusiastic about his job
First experience with Peruvian food. Waiter spent a lot of time going through the menu. Lot of the plates were small and easy to share. The cebiche was perfect.
Eating Outside was phenomenal. They are he tuna ceviche was delicious. Overall a great experience.
Excellent service and excellent Peruvian food. Beautiful presentation with authentic flavor of Peru. Highly recommended.
Absolutely incredible food, beautiful playing, and amazing ingenuity in the dishes. Best meal I’ve had in Chicago.
Absolutely delicious! We just followed the server's recommendations and had a great meal. Try the three-ceviche sampler.
Meal was ok. Service not great at all. Food ok, really not worth any positive mention. Would never go back
If you want to experience the Peruvian food in Chicago.. go to Tanta... experience their signature drinks.. the Ceviches are fresh and flavorful..try the Empanadas... share the dishes to try everything and is more fun...
Great tasting empanadas! Octopus was ok but I had a special drink that was delicious! I think it was the tropical or fruit punch. Ceviche trío was also delicious but a tad pricey for the amount served. Great date night ambiance, roof top has a great view!
wine list needs improvement- not much depth; seemed to only have 1 bottle for each entry
This place was unbelievable! Best Peruvian restaurant I’ve ever experience. Super fresh, and tasty. Loved it
Food was interesting and fantastic! They were wonderful about my food allergies also! The server was very knowledgeable about which dishes contained allergens and made it so easy to order! Fun and interesting drinks too
Outstanding Peruvian food. We were able to grab a spot at the rooftop bar and order the full menu from there while trying their assortment of delicious cocktails.
Tanta has been one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Chicago for years. Always a great atmosphere and delicious, creative, healthy food. We love having a drink up on the rooftop before dinner, and it's also fun to sit and eat at the big bar downstairs. The service has been excellent every single time I've been there. If you haven't eaten there yet, hurry up and make a reservation!
Fabulous food & knowledgeable staff. So tasty- spicy if you want it- just like the food we loved so much when visiting Peru. If you like a little nip, try the Chingon cocktail- tasty & spicy. Yum!!!
Amazing food and service!!! Everything we tried was a delish blend of favors. The rooftop was an added bonus!
Great sharables, sat on the outside deck and loved it! Also tried some specialty drinks, great selection! Empanadas were great! Will definitely be back!
Delicious food but a little bit expensive for the quantity that you eat !
Went on a Tuesday night with a small group. The plates were delicious, shareable, and the server was helpful in narrowing down our options. Would definitely have the wagyu bites every day if I could!
Not as good at lunch. Dinners are much better!
Excellent food, welcoming environment, good service and a great place to celebrate a birthday.
Over zealous bussing!! Food as average; drinks good
Food, drinks , ambience and service amazing like always!!’n every person I take there are always happy and tell me how great is the food... I am super fan of the place !!
Amazing Peruvian food with modern twist. High quality drinks. Very friendly service.
Pleasant, interesting music. Great rooftop.
