Good Peruvian food, good cocktails and nice atmosphere.
Excelente lugar, lo recomiendo. La comida súper rica
The food was outstanding. The cocktails were also outstanding.
Rooftop was beautiful. Service awesome!
Great rooftop, very sheltered, with plenty of heaters for Chicago’s required outdoor dining. I even removed my jacket. No street noise!
Just phenomenal. All the food was so good. Tasting menu was worth it.
Staff was excellent- service was awesome- heaters really worked well!
Great food and amazing service!!! We had Mario and Vanessa as servers. They had great suggestions from the menu and were very personable! They definitely maximized the experience!
Great service waiters and staff are friendly and attentive. Food was good but not amazing. A tad overpriced.
Absolutely incredible food and service. Entire staff was great, Vanessa was our server. We cannot wait to go back.
Service was fantastic, ceviche and empanadas were delicious and the drinks were perfectly paired. Highly recommend.
Excellent service and I love the rooftop
Everything was good. They have a beautiful outside setting on their rooftop. All the food choices for the 4 of us were great.
My husband and I have been going to Tanta since 2014. We flew from Minnesota this past weekend and found out that my reservation was for Sunday and not Saturday.
The host without hesitation was able to sit us.
We felt the food quality fell just a bit. Ceviche and the Pollo a la Brasa did not taste the same. It was good but just missing that kick it always had.
I also did not know that you do not serve Picarones any more during service. Our server was able to get us a portion. I do appreciate it since it is my favorite Peruvian dessert.
I love all Chef Aucrio restaurants in Peru and here in the states. Best food out there.
Amazing food and drinks! The Peruvian take on Shepard's pie was incredible.
We celebrated my best friend’s birthday. Everyone at Tanta was so accommodating and we had a great time. The food and the tropical drink was delicious THANK YOU! We appreciate all your service during a pandemic. Stay safe and stay well Team Tanta!!
Understanding the menu has always been a little tough at Tanta, and iphone menus don't help. So we ordered fewer items than normal (just two entrees). They were good, but not as much fun as past meals when we've ordered many different things. I still LOVE Tanta, but next time I will STUDY the menu before arriving.
Creative food and cocktails. It’s our favorite place in the neighborhood.
The food was good and the service was good but the restaurant had 1 1/2 hour limit and we were asked to leave at the expiration of our time limit. Not really a great way to enjoy a meal especially when your having a business meal and you drop a lot of money.
Food was average for price! Service was outstanding!
Wonderful staff, very accommodating and a fresh breath of fresh air. Will be coming back soon if you’ll have us!
Server was great and helped with recommendations and food was fantastic!
Everything was outstanding! The service was on point and the waitress was very knowledgeable of the exotic menu.
We had the experianca (6 course). The first 3 appetizers were quite small while delicious. The main courses, beef and fish, were ok but too full.
We visited when the indoor dining was supposed to be restricted, but we were seated in an indoor area, with door open to the rooftop.
Delicious food and amazing service! Celebrated a birthday!
Can I give them 100 stars ‼️
The food exceeded all expectations, the drinks were well crafted , overall a great experience.
Vanessa K... Rocks, your service and attention was outstanding. 😁
The food was delicious! I particularly enjoyed the ceviches and the ají de gallina empanadas. We went there for our anniversary and shared several small plates. It was great because we got to try different flavors and preparations. The chips and their salsa were also superb. The place was a little bit more expensive than what I would have wanted but it was still worth it. Highly recommended for a romantic celebration!
Everything was great. Only a bit disappointed the arroz con pollo was removed from the menu.
I love it everytime! Best conchitas a la parmesana
As usual Tanya is always a great spot to spend a night! We shared a ceviche and the pulpo as appetizers and then close with a paella de Mariscos ... delicious. We paired it with Pisco sour and was a great match!
Best Peruvian food I’ve ever had. The food is just incredible, it’s both staying true to their Peruvian roots but with a modern twist. Would highly recommend.
Amazing food and ambience. Definitely coming back here again!
The food is amazing! And service is absolutely wonderful!
I would recommend getting the tasting menu AFTER pandemic or to go. With a 90 min limitation at a table, I would recommend à la carte. The food and drinks were well done and tasty, however the pace of eating so much food was too quick to provide a comfortable dining experience. The staff were very nice and one of the chefs came out to greet us, which was a nice touch.
Our experience was great. I am from Peru and I was impressed on how authentic the food was. The ceviche was Great! Our server Luis was Awesome!!!!
Excelente atención excelente comida de verdad que mágico
Great food!! Service could have been better! .....
Great atmosphere on the roof deck. Awesome food and great service. Can't go wrong!
