I went to Sushi Tango with friends and it was a lot of fun! Two out of the four of us didn't want sushi and this restaurant had other options for those not wanting sushi. I had the Thai Tuna and the Vegas rolls and they were both very delicious! There were a variety of sushi dishes to try and I would like to go back and explore more!

My waitress was on her A game the night my fiancé and I took our friends out for dinner. Everything I asked for she got immediately and she was so sweet and polite. She did tell me her name but the Jameson & gingers the bartender made cloudy my memory if you know what I mean. I've loved sushi tango since day one and I'll forever keep entertaining friends and family there.

The service was rather slow though they seemed fully staffed. A bit too much sauce on the sushi.

The food was great. Sushi/sashimi was fresh and tasty.
The service was slow - as though the server forgot as soon as she walked away. The sushi chefs also seemed to move very slow and not work together to get plates done. We were a table of 7 adults and there was a notable delay in food delivery, especially when second orders of sushi dishes were requested.

If you are making a reservation for a party greater than 10, PLEASE REQUEST TO NOT HAVE YOUR PARTY SEATED BY THE BATHROOM AREA. IT IS EXTREMELY DARK IN THAT SECTION, TO THE POINT YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE THE MENU. YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE YOUR FOOD. ALSO, it is next to the patio door where smoke come and go for their smoke breaks, so add cold breeze and whifts of cigarettes. The lighting either needs to be brighter or don't utilize this area at all. If I would have known this is where we would be seated, I would have not made reservations and went to another restaurant because this completely killed the mood for everyone.

Had a great Valentine's date here! It happened to be karaoke night which was fun. It was really busy but our server was awesome and the sushi was on point. Very accommodating! We were late for our reservation and they held our table. Great experience

Overall it was an "ok" experience, and we would definitely try it again. Given that it was a New Year's Eve dinner the ambiance left much to be desired. It was quite which allowed for conversation but also took away from the Holiday Evening.

Super yummy Sushi! It was a little long of a wait then anticipated, but so worth it! I had the Vegas roll and the Yummy roll, and both were excellent!

Not a big fan. Food was OK at best. Service was slow and unattentive. Could have just been the night but the room was extremely noisy and the live music from Famous Daves bleeding through the floor which (wouldn't be bad if it weren't loud but muffed)

Everything was ok we came here or more sister in laws birthday so we could plan to surprise at home but it obviously failed and everyone got tired because we waited an hour for the food and 40 min for the tab.

The management of the kitchen was extremely poor. We ordered both sushi and cooked food for our dinner. The sushi arrived 45 minutes after the cooked food, when everyone eating hot food had finished, and the sushi eaters were hungry and grumpy.
The waiter twice told us the sushi would be ready in five minutes or less, once telling us it "was being plated." Then he just went away and hid. Asset no point did we give him a hard time or even complain.
Sushi was acceptable, not great. Soft shell crab in spider roll was under sized and not freshly cooked.
There are better sushi restaurants nearby. Give it a miss.

We had heard great reviews about one of the sushi chefs from friends. However, we were totally disappointed. We sat for probably 15 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order. We ordered wine off the menu then ten minutes later the server came back to tell us we ordered off an old wine menu and that one wasn't available. Eventually, we did get our drinks, but it easily took 30 minutes. We ordered four rolls, but we only received three. When we told our server, he seemed surprised. Again, eventually, we got our rolls. Two of them tasted the exact same. One was a fried roll and you could taste that the oil hadn't been changed in awhile. We sat with empty drinks and plates ready to leave for about 15 minutes before our server finally came to give us our check. All around disappointing. I would not go back nor recommend others to return.

We went there for a birthday. We had a large party (about 12), but we were one of a few tables in the whole restaurant. The server was very attentive and apologetic, but the rest of the service was terrible. Our drinks took FOREVER. Several people never got their food. Those of us that did got it way later than we should have. When we mentioned something to management, explaining that we believed our server was doing well, but the kitchen and bar were not, they were not apologetic at all! They didn't seem to care and got very defensive. To top the cherry... birthday girl got NOTHING. We booked through open table. Every restaurant I have been to through open table, when I note there is a special occasion, has done something in some way to make it special. They did nothing.

The food... it is okay. Not the greatest sushi, but considering the service... FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE.
