Tanzy Restaurant serves Italian fusion cuisine in its bright and contemporary eatery. Appetizer options, such as the caramelized Brussels sprouts topped with crispy bacon and the luscious shrimp cocktail, are extremely fresh and offer previews of the excellent meal ahead. House entrées include the crispy skin snapper fillet with cannellini beans and wilted escarole, the spiced turkey sausage orecchiette pasta, and the herb-roasted jidori chicken with mushrooms and cabbage fondue. Tanzy Restaurant's inventive fare continues with the dessert course, where the rich dulce de leche and speculoos cookie crumble topped doughnut stack is hard to pass up.
Tanzy Restaurant also serves an irresistible weekend brunch with satisfying items such as crispy chicken and sourdough waffles with country gravy, corned beef hash with eggs and the brioche French toast.
good food and nice atmosphere and the parking was $3 after thevalidation
Nothing like we expected. Picture in-theater restaurant.....no so great. But, we were very surprised. Varied menu, great service, great food and the price value relationship was actually very good. The on-site parking and being right at the theater provided for an excellent way to unwind, eat, have some drinks and take the escalator to our pre-reserved seats. No hassles and no rushing. This is now our go-to for movie night!
Last night was the first time I'd ever come to Tanzy and I am very pleased that I did! My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to formally dine without losing the fun of being out on a Friday night and Tanzy was perfect.
The bar was full, but since we were at one of the dining tables, we got to have the fun atmosphere while still enjoying great table service. Our server was very sweet and helpful and the food was delicious. The only reason I would give the food a 4 out of 5 is because the pasta portions were a little bit small, but the quality more than makes up for it. I had the strozzapretti and it was great. Also, we didn't know that there was a movie theater attached, but next time we will definitely be taking advantage of that!
My friend and I came here last night to catch up after not seeing each other for 10 years, so I was very pleased at the ambiance and the excitement but the bar did make the dining tables a little bit loud. Regardless of that very slight drawback (understandable on a Friday night), we had an excellent time! The hostess was very sweet in helping us find the quietest table and our server was a gem! She was very thorough walking us through the menu and suggested the salmon which was amazing. We also started with the lettuce cups, which had glazed cod on them- excellent! Also, don't miss the donut stack. Small donuts with caramel sauce, super delicious!
Overall, great experience. I will definitely be back for more of those lettuce cups!
Service was excellent, drinks were great, Ambience was amazing, but the food was just ok. Too expensive for what you get and portions very small. Go somewhere else for food, but here for a drink.
The decor of the restaurant was very nice. The lounge area with fire pits is also a really cool place to hang out and have a few drinks. The food was good but it didn't knock my socks off, but I would be willing to go back and try other items. I had the short rib and my GF had the filet, both left no crumbs behind. The drinks from the bar were really good. Only mild complaint is that I had to track town my server a few times for refills and the check. It wasn't a particularly busy night either.
We enjoyed a terrific Sunday brunch before seeing a movie. The restaurant was quiet, so we got excellent service. Loved the bottomless mimosas and the chicken and waffles was outstanding!
I'm not sure why it is so difficult to find a great Restaurant in Westwood Village. We had a very disappointing experience at Tanzy. We had dined there before at a private party and the food and service were excellent. We brought our friends, who live in the area, to try it for the first time. Our waiter was very nice, however, he was not competent as a waiter. Although the restaurant was empty on a Saturday night, our service was extremely slow. Our food was not good. The onion soup came out cold and after it was brought back warm, it was pure salt. The Octopus salad was small and not very good. The main courses of fish and pasta were small and not very tasty. Overall it was an unfortunately dining experience.
It was very quiet the Tuesday night we were there. The decor and ambience are nicely done and interesting. It is spacious, so I don't know how loud it would be when it's busy. The food was very good! We enjoyed the short rib, the kale salad was nicely done, the burratta caprese was great. Its location right next door to movie theaters is very handy. We'll be back!
Nice spot...particularly if going to IPic movies - food was all good, but not amazing. I think the portions could be a bit larger - especially the pasta. Service was good - nice, easy going
My family of 5 dined at 7:45PM Christmas Eve with reservations. The restaurant actually called to confirm the day before. We were just one of very few tables occupied for dinner that evening...... I was told on the phone that the menu would be open, as well as, the same price fix option available to us that they were offering on Christmas Day. That was not the case when we ordered. We were only offered the regular dinner menu. We ordered a bottle of wine that they could not locate so they called the manager who responded to us about 30 minutes after we attempted to order. We were offered any selection of our specific wine choice at a matched price to what we wanted. We received our wine about 20 minutes later. I have experienced "fine" dining many times, but the portions of our dinners wouldn't satisfy an infant. Our waitress was very unfamiliar with the menu and was corrected several times by colleagues on what she informed us! All of our meals were less than appetizing, tasty or satisfying. To think, we decided to try Tanzy over The Palm as a last minute decision thinking Tanzy would live up to some of the reviews we had read.
Excellent service, drinks, and drink prices (for this area). The food, however, was very disappointing. We shared 2 appetizers, one salad, and one pasta. Of those, only the salad was properly flavorful and textured. The onion rings were terribly greasy; the octopus didn't really have much flavor; and the pasta was doughy, dense, and not properly cooked (the sauce was good, not great - think Olive Garden).
Service was great, food was delicious, ambiance was unique.
Tanzy is a great restaurant as part of a movie experience. It doesnt quite make it as a stand alone restaurant. Went for Thanksgiving dinner and although they weren' t packed, the kitchen and waiters were overwhelmed. They did offer a free drink but waits between courses were very long Food was OK, not great
The location is lovely. The hostesses as well. Our server was great, but stressed. A lot of effort went into make the venue sparkle, but the inner workings need some work. It seemed, to my untrained eye, that there were not a lot of staff and utter chaos behind the scenes. I don't know how long they have been open, but hope that this is "new venture" jitters and the experience will improve.
