The hostess at the front desk on Sunday evening was amazing! She was very energetic and pleasant with our 15 month old, Evie. The hostess even held her and helped keep her calm! She even gave Evie a little gift. I don't recall her name, but she deserves something nice as a thank you!
Food is always great and fresh at Tanta!
The was some of the best food I've ever had. The empanadas were amazing and the alfajores were sublime. Great drinks too. I would go back again and again.
The food and service are impeccable! Should have a Michelin Star.
Absolutely the best service! The food was exceptional and the server guided our decision since it is really easy to over-order! We started with cocktails, the El Chignon and El Macho for my husband. The wine is also wonderful. The vibe is upbeat and we had a great evening!
Authentic menu. Service was excellent. The server answered all of our questions. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
I love this place!
Celebrated my wife's birthday and we could not have been happier. Staff was very attentive and engaging. Our server made some great recommendations and her suggestions exceeded our expectations. The pisco sour's were the best we ever tried, and we are big fans of Peruvian cuisine. My only wish was that we could sample the view from the rooftop but inclement weather ruled that out. Again, the service was beyond reproach. Our water glasses never got below 1/2 way point before being refilled without asking; food was promptly served fresh and tasty with no delays, given that the restaurant was quite full. We plan on returning soon with friends.
Great service. Great cocktails. Very good food
Loud but good food
Just awesome Place and food. Best Peruvian Restaurant we ever visited and enjoyed
My favorite. Look forward to visiting every time I am in town!
Tanta is really an amazing place.
Since I've been to Peru many years ago,I love Peru food so much. Tanta is so far the best!The food is gorgeous and service is so helpful.
Cool place and good food, but service was poor. Ordered two appetizers that never came. Priced reasonably well, though.
The food at Tanta did not disappoint: flavorful, innovative, beautiful. This restaurant is a foodie's dream. The biggest disappointment, however, was the service. It took at least 15 minutes for the waitress to come to our table to get our drink orders. She seemed very apathetic towards us. For what you pay here, you should receive EXCEPTIONAL service. Huge divide between the amazing food experience and the service experience.
Arrived 4 hours late thought my reservations was for 9:15 when we get there it was for 5:15. They still sat us in a very nice room upstairs where the roof top is.
Our dinner at Tanta was exceptional!! I return after 3 years to Chicago and remembered my past experience eat Tanta. The second time around was even better! The waitress was very helpful with me making my food choices. I had the chicken skewer and an empanada and my husband has a shrimp entree. Everything was cooked and served perfectly. i would highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic variety of great food and beverages. The server took the time to review the menu in detail and provide awesome recommendations!
Fantastic food and staff, always a great decision to dine at Tanta
Tanta delivered an amazing experience with Peruvian cuisine! The classic ceviche was unreal.
I’ve never had any fish before, I just cannot stand the smell. However, my BF made me try the ceviche here and it was the most delicious thing I’ve ever had. We got the Classico. The service was amazing, prompt and the food was delicious. Can’t wait to come back.
This place was amazing! We had a very late reservation (9:45pm) and when I called that day they were able to accommodate us earlier which was wonderful. The restaurant is so inviting and eclectic. And the food was outstanding. Ceviches were delicious and flavorful, and the entrees all looked great. I had the Lamo Saltado and the portion was huge. Would definitely come here again.
I love the place
Great experience. Thank you!~----------------------------
Some of the best Peruvian cuisine I’ve had (from a restaurant) since Lima!
Great authentic Peruvian food. We had the corn, ceviche tasting platter, chaufa and octopus. Every dish was perfection!
All the starters were amazing. My husband did not love his entree but I think we could have ordered better. Overall a great spot I would like to try again.
Tasty but not for foodies
Great entree’s, wonderful service and just love the pisco sours!
The food was amazing. It’s truly fresh and the service is exceptional!
Terrific Peruvian food, friendly service and a beautiful rooftop patio made for a fantastic dining experience.
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☺
Great flavors and enjoyable meal. Waiter was very knowledgeable.
What a gem of a discovery. Try to get a roofdeck seat!
The food was incredible.
