Tanta has two Chef’s Tables that each seat up to 10 people. These tables are located in our main dining room in between our open kitchen and cebiche bar which allows you and your guests to experience our chefs creating Peruvian cuisine while you dine.
The menu, created by Acurio and Tanta Chicago Chef Giancarlo Valera, takes diners on a voyage through Peru via its food. From the Pacific Ocean, through the Andes, to the desert, to the Amazon, Tanta celebrates the diverse landscape and ethnicities that make up Peru’s culture.

La comida estaba bien no excelente pero no es como en peru mesecitan más variedad en la comida primera y última vez que voy el pisco no hay variedad
Loved the food! Service was also perfect
The food was great. The service could be better, however.
I had an amazing Sunday thanks to Tanta . Great food , great vibes .
Employees and Waiter were really polite .
This place is awesome! The food makes me feel like I am at home. Great service!
Unusual tapas and great food. We took our grown children and
13 year old granddaughter. Everyone loved the food and great
Food and drinks were great! Staff was helpful and prompt. All in all a great meal
Our first time eating on Tanta's roof. It was a lovely ambiance. Food and drinks were wonderful. We will be back!
It was just a bad experience overall, dirty bathrooms, super quite music, food was not good neither some of the drinks. One of our chairs was broken, and more stuff that we didn’t enjoy.
This was an amazing experience and Louis took great care of us!
The team accommodated our table. We were techinically 8, but 2 were babies and 2 toddlers, so they were kind to let us all sit in one table. Great service, great food!
Great food and service. I personally don't love the space, but it's definitely worth it for the food.
Tanta always provides a wonderful experience. The service is exceptional and the food is always amazing. Highly recommend.
I absolutely love this place! Great atmosphere, food and service! Everything was great. I will definitely be coming back!!
This place was suggested to me by a friend and we will definitely be back. It was perfect for a date night and the food and drinks were amazing!! The staff were very attentive and the entire vibe was just a great one to be out and about.
We were a group of 4 visiting Chicago. Each of us had a different meal so we were able to taste different dishes. All of us were amazed, because the food was absolutely amazing, the flavors were so delicious. Probably the best restaurant I've ever been to!
Honestly some of the best food I’ve had in a long time. The flavors were so well executed and so unique. The octopus (a notoriously tricky meat to cook) was not only flavorful but cooked to perfection with excellent accompaniments. The drinks were STRONG and made for a fun evening. I would recommend getting a pisco sour to get into the mood of the restaurant. It is like a creamy margarita.
The tuna in the tiradito nikkei was not good. I expected it to be amazing, given that the food in tanta peru is great. However, this was not even a 5/10.
I got to say that the pollo saltado and pisco sours were great!
Great happy hour, service was fast. The drinks were good.
Great food and quick and friendly service. Definitely recommend!
Love the variety of dishes, although the layout of the menu seems a little confusing. The scallops were really tasty and beautifully presented, but they were in the menu alongside much bigger dishes.
Great food, drinks and service! Will definitely come back.
Food was delicious and authentic. It took my wife and I back to the 2 months we backpacked through Peru albeit a bit more refined. Beautiful setting, great drinks, top notch food.
Great ambiance and very cozy for the brisk April Weather. The bus boy was AMAZING we were on the rooftop and I did not run out of water when he was at our table refilling or kept asking what else was needed. We did have an issue with one of our plates of food taking too long, but everyone apologized and they did make amends. The food was great and the attentive bus boy made the small inconvenience better.
Fabulous food. We will be back.
They serve a delicious food there that will blow your mind
Food was tasty and service was amazing. I would recommend the ceviche and the lomo!
Really Great Experience! Felt Totally Safe with tables being spread out.
Great Food and Service!
Food is very good and the quantities are large. Highly recommend ceviche starter.
While service was brisk and attentive, the server had zero clue about vegan options or adjustments. Maybe he was new? But we had chosen this restaurant based on being vegan friendly. Really only one or two options that we could discern. Friendly staff and the Covid precautions were done well.
Went for dinner on a Friday, tried the cebiche classico and the chafa aeropuerto. Both dishes were delicious and well presented. Tried the pisco sour and the la rusa, both drinks had different taste profiles and were very good in their own right.
We loved our meal at Tanta!
Great experience for a night it with the family. The food and service were fantastic
I love Tanta! One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago!
Pasamos una tarde muy agradable en Tanta.La atención de primera,así como la comida y cocktails.El Pisco Sour en particular estuvo delicioso.Lo único penoso fue no poder disfrutar de una cerveza Peruana o de otra variedad que no fuese IPA para acompañar nuestros ceviches pero entiendo que es debido a la pandemia.Definitivamente como Peruana lo recomiendo al 100% y regresaremos sin dudarlo cuando volvamos a visitar Chicago.Gracias Tanta!!
Absolutely love Tanta. The food and drinks are spectacular and the upstairs, outdoor bar is a perfect way to cap off a great night. Just because you don't know what Peruvian food may be, do yourself a favor and try it. you will love the spices and flavors!
Service was great but I felt so rushed. Server was in a hurry to get my order and and get me out of there. Prices are ridiculously high.
