We really enjoyed ourselves and the food was fantastic. My only concern was how dark it was in the restaurant. It was a business entertainment situation and everyone complimented the food.

Our family of four dined at Tango. We were pleased with the decor and courteousness of the staff.

Our server, while pleasant, was either new or lacking. For the record, she was very nice. But for a restaurant of this quality and price, the service should have been better.

Of note

I had a glass of wine, and while done before my entree, was not offered another

My wife had a bottle of sparkling water. Again, she finished and was not offered another

My wife ordered a salad and a gnocchi, the latter was missed And forgotten

I had king crab, the candle under the butter was not lit, and one offered to light it and shortly it became solidlied.


The kids shared a steak, which was good.

But sadly, the potential of this restaurant was missed.

Had I not had kids with me, asking to go home, I would have spoken with the manager.

Thankfully, if they read this review, all of these problems can be resolved with better training of their service staff.

Cozy place to have drinks with friends. Food is great, not too expensive. The staffs are attentive, always asking how we are doing and if we find everything to our satisfaction. Took a couple of friends for a light dinner and they loved the starters and the entrees.

We had such attentive service as it was a quiet Saturday night. We made a reservation last minute but were seated as soon as we arrived. Great choices for vegetarian and nice ambiance.

Our experience at Tango was Excellent.... Service matched the food.…We had a selection of appetizers; Goat cheese, Fresh Oysters & the Crab cake that was one of the best we've ever had!.... for Entrée we shared the "Carnivore Platter".... Bison & various cuts of Beef. The meats were tender & tasty, the sauces were rich & authentic. The sides were excellent with an honourable mention to the Caesar salad, a delicious interpretation of the classic so thank-you Chefs. Now I believe Conrad was our server....the best timing and etiquette I've seen in a long time. He clearly new what he was doing and did it very well. Excellent job'
We would highly recommend Tango Bistro to anyone looking for Great night out.
We went on a Friday night at 7pm.

I really do love this place. On this occasion, the meals were okay but not awesome. The mussel broth was lacking spice/depth. The meatloaf was similarly bland. The lobster gnocchi was very good and so was the salmon. The escargot again lacked great flavoring and there was almost no buttery aftermath to dip into. The crab cakes were okay but overpowered by mayo. Drinks were awesome. Really appreciate the ongoing specials. The ambiance was fantastic as was the service.

the scallops were appropriately cooked, the salmon done to my friend's specification. the wine selection is far from impressive but it was half price so that's a bonus. the service was attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. it made what could have been an average experience much more memorable.

The service was great and cordial and bread and small appi was a nice touch. I personally ordered the Steak/Frites *Med-Rare" and when it came, it had barely been on grill. The waiter took back and the others had their dinners quite a while before mine came back. The fries by this time were cold and the meat was inedible and could not even be cut. Waiter noticed I had not really eaten meal and handled it all very appropriately without me complaining. Manager also came to table and it was all handled very professionally. I was not charged for my meal. It was totally a "one-off" disaster and I will be back to restaurant.

I be been to Tango Bistro several times in the past and have always had a great experience. I usually just order a selection of appetizers because they're outstanding. The service was off a bit this time, with a server who didn't seem very familiar with the menu, and was overly friendly and more inclined to talk about herself and her thoughts on life than serving.
It's a pretty subjective thing to knock a restaurant on, so I'll be definitely be back, and will just make a point of avoiding that server next time. I will say that I've always had outstanding service on my past visits.
I do love the food and atmosphere though!

Tango was terrific. Very attentive, professional yet friendly service. Excellent recommendations and able to customize dishes. We went for a business dinner and it was so good we went back later in the week for date night. Food is unique and very good, cool drink selections and good wine list. Love their seafood happy hour!

This restaurant is a must. I'm never disappointed on coming here on special occasions. The food is really amazing and the service is fantastic. Thank you Maddie for your wonderful service (I hope I didn't misspelled your name)
My family and I had a great night celebrating my birthday. Fabulous the food we order. Among other things on the menu, we had the grilled salmon with crispy capers, crushed peppercorn and lemon risotto. The fish was cooked to perfection although the rice that came with wasn't, was way over cooked for my taste. The beer and cheddar soup is a must in every order but what I was so pleasantly surprised was on the order I placed by mistake. The Poutine with wild mushrooms, green peppercorn demi and cheese curds, well, was really a treat for the palate. And I never liked poutine of any kind before! It really was a true delicacy.
Thank you Tango Bistro for a very pleasant evening!
