First visit for us; enjoyed the meal - the goat cheese appetizer was a standout, and the lobster gnocchi was excellent. Unfortunately the French onion soup was over-reduced for our taste; thick, salty, and with a bitter aftertaste. But everything else was spot on - the strawberry collage cocktail and the house Malbec were also outstanding.

Our server was great, a total ball of energy that kept us entertained each time she stopped by the table.

My steak just wasn’t seasoned well and didn’t taste nearly as good as the $8 steak special I had at a pub a few days ago. Vegetables were very good though.

Menu has changed from tapas which was a bit disappointing as the reviews were so good. We still did a mix of appies/entrees.
Scallops vgood, mussels good, tartare just ok, crab salad v good
Nice relaxing atmosphere with fireplaces, cozy booths.
Fancy cocktails a bit disappointing for flavour so reverted to our go to drinks after one

The service was awful. It took an hour to get our bills separated and they were not correct. Our waiter said we were high maintenance. It was 2 of our birthdays and we felt that we were not treated to a nice dining experience.

It was a quieter night so the noise level wasn’t bad, we’ve been before when it was LOUD but the place was full and everyone was having fun so who cares. The food is delicious, I haven’t had anything that I wouldn’t order again. Lobster gnocchi had a pleasantly surprising amount of lobster in it. The fried chicken comes with just fried chicken so think about ordering a separate side.

We loved Tango when it was all tapas and when it changed we stopped going. But we figured we would give it a go again as friends recommended it to us. Our server forgot to ring half of our appetizers. We reminded him about it and he still forgot to ring it in. My husband ordered the hen which tasted delicious however was lukewarm when it got to the table along with all the sides it came with. I ordered the lobster gnocchi and it was delicious. We found ourselves waiting a fair amount for our server almost the whole time. As much as our friends liked it, I wouldn’t go back.

We visit Tango on a regular basis, for some reason this time wasn't that great! Our food came out cold and my husband and I came home and were ill to our stomach. Will rethink going there for next time it's a shame as we use to like it there.

This was our first visit to the restaurant and we will be returning. We arrived before 6:00 pm and had oysters for half price. Very fresh. Wine was also half price. Our mains of mussels frites and gnocchi were very good. There were 4 of us in our party and we all enjoyed the experience.

I found the ambiance at Tango quite nice, however my friend and I were disappointed at the food and overall experience. The fries were limp and did not seem fresh. The key lime pie was $8+ and was overpriced for the quality. The flavour seemed very artificial and the whipped cream was melted by the time it got to the table. I had been to Tango Bistro many times over the past few years, and I was looking forward to the tapas menu, but was disappointed that so much, including the quality of the food, had changed.
The server did not seem like he wanted to be working, nor serving us. He lacked finesse and professionalism. We also felt rushed to pay the bill. I will likely not be returning to Tango Bistro, nor will I be recommending it.

Really great evening! Love this place. Our waiter was a little pre occupied with a large group that left us waiting on a few things to compliment our meal. he was aware of the poor service and did buy us an oyster shooter to make up for it

Great appetizers as we had the escargot and blue crab salad which was generous. Where the meal was very average was the entree. A small steak with nothing else was $42. Why the chef wouldn’t have at least garnished the plate with some vegetables. We were asked to order a side however my friend opted to have some of my pasta.
The pasta primavera had a very tasty sauce but the noodles and sauce were not mixed well. The result was a glob if noodles underneath the to portion. Normally I would have sent this plate back but did not want to change the flow of dinner. Average value in my books.
