Chris di a fine job of serving up a salmon, a couple of spareribs and the porkchop. The porkchop was huge and the spareribs were nicely proportioned. Wife was very happy with the salmon., loved the risotto. A very positive experience and on the goback list

We were disappointed the menu and format had changed drastically. No longer a small plates tapas restaurant. Food was good but entrees are expensive and don’t come with sides. It was a good meal but value was not great. Service was good but only average.

Instead of exchanging Christmas gifts my family decided to go out for dinner and drinks. Tango was above and beyond our expectations. Everything we had was delicious!! We all had bites of each other’s food and we’re in awe of it all. Our server Riley was wonderful as well. She even brought my sister a blanket noticing that she was cold from the draft of the back exit door being used. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We booked at Tango Bistro to have a welcome home celebration with out daughter who was just returning home from New Zealand after a year. It was raw bar night, which I had no idea when we booked but it was great. We love seafood so this didn't disappoint! We were a large group and the service was great and accommodating for us! The food was great and we would definitely return again. Thanks for a great meal, service and setting.

We enjoyed our meal and will go back. The table side preparation of the smoked old fashion was nice. Overall a very good meal. My only complaint would be how the meat was cut for the carnivore platter, a couple of the portions had significant inedible gristle. When paying top dollar for a total of 16oz I expect none to be wasted tableside.

I had the lobster dinner special and it was basically inedible. The clam chowder was milk thickened with cornstarch and not much else. The lobster was dry and we did not get any utensils to open the claws, the corn was overcooked and waterlogged and the baked potato was stale. I would not recommend this dish at all.

Unfortunately I hate writing negative reviews but if I can save anyone's time and money I would have to say tango is a place I would never go back to. Our server was absolutely horrible he didn't bring out our drinks Until our dinner was a done, thanfully for the other staff members that were assisting him bringing out the appetizer plates, and attending to our water or we would have been extremely dehydrated since our drinks didnt arrive.
Now the dinner- we started off with the clam chowder soup which was good definitely something I would not rave about, and out comes this cold small white dish off a lobster meal, The presentation of our dinner plate looked like we got it from a shelter/ prison (no joke) A teaspoon of what the call coleslaw, whith two bites of lobster, piece of well over cooked shrivelled corn, under cooked potatoe, and a cold stale biscuit on top.
There are where also other issues throughout the night.
With so many different restaurants to choose from save your money and dine somewhere else.

We were disappointed to find out that Tangos is no longer a tapas restaurant, which was why we were returning. Granted, it had apparently just celebrated a year since changing, so we obviously weren't regulars even when it was.
First, the service was excellent. I wish I took note of our server's name; he had definitely been there on one of our previous visits (a year+ prior). He was very helpful with the menu, especially when we had mentioned that we had come for a tapas experience, he pointed out items that had stayed on the menu, or what new menu items made for nice sharing.
We chose a few appies (seared scallops: delicious!), and shared the Gnocchi Ratatouille; I was a little disappointed in how little actual gnocchi there was in the dish, but the roasted vegetables were lovely.
I'd likely return again, but in no rush. Out of all of the incredible restaurants in Calgary, its unfortunate to have lost the charm of the tapas experience Tango once offered. Now I feel like they blend in with a sea of other good restaurants in the city. Still a very nice experience, though!

We had gone to Tango very excited to partake in the All You Can Eat Crab Boil, but it had been discontinued despite still being advertised as available. We were quite disappointed and instead ordered the Lobster Dinner (which was “coming soon” according to the website). The lobster was over cooked and the roe was off-putting for my children. The clam chowder was really good though.

We went for the first time since the menu was changed from tapas. We really enjoyed the new menu. I feel the new menu is slightly more expensive than the old menu, but there are still some more economical options which are also very delicious. We will definitely be back.

The atmosphere and service are fantastic. We got the seafood tower and some appies.
The seafood tower seafood was good however the clams were very small and we definitely would have left hungry without our appies. The scallops were amazing and the scallop crudo sample they gave us was delicious.
Overall a fantastic spot to be by the fire on date night.

Wow. Just wow. Came here with my hubby and another couple. We were all conversation until the food came. Then it was just mmmmm! Everything was delicious. We started with the seared scallops, french onion soup (best we've ever had), devilled eggs and crab cake. Then on to the most fantastic piece of beef - the Cote de Boeuf, gnocchi ratatouille mac & cheese and baked yam. Portions were generous, service was amazing and ambiance is gorgeous. Can't wait to go back and try the rest!!!!

I've came here for my 6th year anniversary. The server was very attentive and nice. The portions are generous and well prepared. Presentation was gorgeous.

We also happen to went on a Tuesday where they offer all night raw bar. I'm especially in love with the west coast oysters and the scallop crudo. It was really fresh.
