The Sushi was outstanding. We were a party of 8 and everyone loved their food. The finale for all was sharing each couple one halo halo. Overall a great evenlng.

They have the freshest fish and 4-5 ways of preparation. I’ve 3 of them and they don’t disappoint. Everything is full of flavor. We’ve been here 3 times upon discovering this hidden treasure a month ago.

Service was horrible. We had to ask for silverware, plates, a steak knife (twice). Server did not provide anything without us asking. The food was alright but the prices you are paying it should be much better. They had a singer who was good but it was way too loud. You were unable to have a conversation.

I have had way better surf and turf. The steak was flat and dry.

We celebrated my husband's birthday Thursday night at Tante's. We just can't say enough about the delicious food, huge portions, killer sushi, awesome music and the servers were on it. I told everyone about our experience at Tante's. And the view was absolutely breath taking. Thank you Tante's, the night turned out perfect. See you again soon!

My wife and I went here for a date night. The food was great, and although fairly expensive I feel it was worth the price. The staff was friendly, and the live music set a nice, fun ambiance.

Unfortunately, my food - lobster and crab stuffed mahi mahi with a macadamia nut crust- arrived about 20 minutes before my wifes Sushi plate. I tried to be polite and not eat, but I wound up slowly eating my full meal before her sushi arrived. This place would be great if it had better timing.

Fairly new restaurant (about a year). Great fish selections and proper cooking techniques. The main attraction here is fish but other seafood available. Scallops, shrimp, oysters. Nice variation of sweet and savory. Highly recommend.

Tante’s was a real disappointment, menu should be perfect maybe trying to offer too much. Crab was good but nothing with it. Service was OK but presentation and getting drinks to table was an issue. The biggest problem was cleanliness, windows inside and out were filthy, the kitchen windows which are large were also very dirty and the glass door into the kitchen was a mass of finger marks. Wouldn’t take much to improve, would suggest outside at Lunch probably worth a go. Real shame.

I ordered a cup of clam chowder and it came with a thick layer of skin on top. I pulled it off and ate the rest, it was ok but it tasted like it came out of a can. I ordered the mahi mahi, which was ok as well if not a little bland. Would not recommend. The decor was dated, could use an update.

We were looking for a good seafood restaurant , this was not it. The restaurant itself is in a nice area with a harbor view. But the windows to look out of haven’t been washed since 1992; I got a glimpse of what glaucoma would be like.

Our server was really nice and took time to explain the menu. We asked a lot of questions and she was really sweet in answering all of them. We started out with calamari and fried oysters. Both were from the freezer, but were not bad.

I ordered the ribs and my husband ordered one of the Filipino specialities (there were a lot of them to choose from) called the Bangus. My portion of a full rack of ribs was humongous. The preparation of the ribs seemed a little off, but the were not over cooked and were ok... nothing spectacular and the Dole Pineapple Ring from a can was on top. We are in Hawaii and I would expect fresh pineapple in the recipe. The Bangus was a flattened whole fish that was fried. It had a special sauce marinade and my husband rather liked it.

Last we ordered the Filipino special desert the Halo Halo. It is a very specialized dish that was not to my liking. My husband ate it whilst I watched.

Overall, the service was good, the location is nice and the food was OK. We may or may not try again...

Thought it was a higher end fish restaurant. Probably our fault for not researching better. We were a large group (18) and one of the only guests there at the time. The waiter was good but the kitchen could not keep up. Half of our table had to wait 9 minutes to be served their entree. In my opinion the menu is way to large. They need to trim it down and focus on quality over quantity. Get rid of the food photos on the menu, dim the lights, remove the karaoke setup, serve fresh ingredients, and maybe rethink their concept. We would not return.

Nice, unassuming fish house near the marina. Food was uniformly excellent for party of 4 ordering across the menu. Drink menu was more than adequate as was the wine list. A good experience.

Food was superb, the establishment was very clean and Service was really good. The location is great and I see a lot of potential here as other restaurants in the same spot didn't do well Tante's will. The steak and lobster was killer

Just an average place......service was poor although there were 2 huge parties....the food was okay, not great and the music was fantastic but so loud you couldn't speak to your dinner companions.......the setting is nice, but they need to fine tune a lot of things.
