My date and I left after waiting for 41 minutes and were not served after being seated. I would understand if it were packed but that was not the case.

Very nice restaurant that has a very sensuous atmosphere that kindles the senses in more than just your culinary requirement. Great setting for a close and special dinner.

It's not that I would not recommend it... I think it's just not ready to be a dinner spot.. A late night dinner spot with party to follow yes .... But not for the 8.30pm dinner crowd... The 10.30 dinner crown will be happy here.
Food was good and service was charming and friendly. Do not fault it for anything just feel it lacks a bit if warmth at dinner time.... Decor is absolutely fabulous though... Maybe the lighting? Hope they are successful.

Malísima comida. El peor servicio. En la página ofrecen el miami spice y cuando llegas la dueña te dice que no es cierto. Le tuve que enseñar desde mi iPhone su página para que vea que ofrece el menú. Luego rogando que me sirvan moet. La comida tan fea que nos cayo mal. El día anterior comimos en el SLS x 350 dólares. Acá tuve que pagar 600 dólares y comi y me atendieron peor que en un mc donalds. Si viene a este lugar es demasiado tonto

I came here last year and everything was perfect, so expetations were high this time. But it was nothing special. I asked for a Chianti and it took 15 minutes for the waitress to tell me they didn't have it. And she didn't offer an option. The meat was great, but for $109 (just the entrée), you can't expect less then perfection. The restaurant is famous for its Monday's after-dinner party, but this time it was half empty. Overall, just average.

I recommend the Love Apple (tomato, goat cheese), King Salmon, and Grilled eggplant side. Each dish had the right amount of spices and umami. The meal was one of the best I've had in Miami. The restaurant is great for a romantic meal: dimly lit, quiet and excellent service. Dinner music was a bit odd... Indian/emo. The restaurant turns into a dance club at night after 11pm... but the place doesn't fill out until 12am so waiting after dinner was awkward. They play a mix of hip-hop/dance and hispanic/salsa music which was weird to switch between since a lot of people stopped dancing when it switched. It's a few blocks away from the main streets and the sidewalks nearby have a homeless stench. Also the exterior looks old and poorly painted.

Our experience at Tantra was somewhat of a let-down. The food overall was good but the service was strange and especially slow. Our waitress was either new or clearly didn't have a clue about serving tables. She came back after the first course was served to ask what we ordered for the main courses. (?). Then she explained what foie gras and prawns were to us, as if we had never eaten out. Strangely she provided her opinion on both options telling us "it wasn't her preference". Overall the restaurant is beautiful but the atmosphere is ruined when you look up at the tacky TV and see strip-joint type pictures. Sexy to me, isn't having to show it all off. When I have a $40 steak, I'd prefer to see only that piece of meat in front of me.

Great food and service. Romantic setting perfect for a special occasion. Dine here late! 8:30 was way too early for this place. Cocktails are a must along with the lobster.

We wanted to have a quite night and we had it. Ambience was great and good service. It was very loud after 10:30pm. I did not expected. Over all a nice place to go for a date or to chill out.

Menu provided enough standards among the exotic to keep conservative pallets happy, but even the standards had enough twist to entertain the foodies. Service was fantastic; we had a great time.
