If tonight was a standard of service, I can see why this place is closing. I’m so sad because I used to love it and I wanted to suggest everyone go there before the final cocktail, but I would absolutely advise finding another place to dine!

Victor Tangos is always a good call. Interesting small plates and drinks are their thing. Get the tuna nachos. They are absolutely amazing.

I booked a reservation a day in advance. When I arrived I was told there was no air conditioning and they could not serve hot food. I was meeting with a client who had been in an operating room all day who was very hungry. We ended up walking somewhere else. I thought it was inconsiderate to not tell me about their issues until I arrived. I could have made reservations elsewhere. Not happy.

This is always the best place to go with a small group of people that just want to mingle over bites and drinks. The tapas menu allows for great sharing ideas with everyone at the table. Everyone gets a bite of everything. Drinks are great. The service is wonderful. The food comes out in a timely manner. The ambiance is smooth. 10 10 10

I have been a fan of this place for years but today I was not pleased. The menu at the restaurant changed but it was never updated here in Open Table. I raved about certain menu items and convinced two of my best friends that recently moved to Dallas to go with me to try them. I did check the menu in Open Table and my favorite items were listed so I pressured them into having dinner with me at Victor Tangos. Unfortunately, the items I wanted were no longer available on the menu we got when we sat down and when I told the manager that they were still showing in the Open Table menu, he dismissed it saying they were not responsible for that. I found it hard to understand how it was not their responsibility since they choose to use the Open Table app and its not like Open Table will know when the menu is changed unless the restaurant notifies them. We had dinner and drinks and I was expecting some sort of gesture of good will or apology but it never materialized. They did not care about us as returning customers at all. I left the restaurant disappointed about the lack of customer service and concern about the discrepancy in menus. My friends had a very bad first impression of the place that I used to love. I was not able to enjoy my dinner and find it hard to recommend this place in the future to any other friend.

Great cocktail menu!! The duck flatbread was awesome. Fresh. Easy and fun for a group or to sit at the bar and enjoy the mescal drinks or agave tequila. A sure fire place for anyone in Dallas

Was greeted immediately asked if had a reservation even though it wasn't very busy. Did have a reservation but just watch out. Waiter was very knowledgeable and gave some great recommendations on food and alcohol.
Tapas style. Tacos are to die for

Always been a fan of this place. Consistently very good. Highlight of this night was Christina, our server. Super attentive, but not overbearing. Great sense of humor. Really had a nice understanding of the whiskey list. Brought us several new options to consider. Made several successful food recommendations.

Super evening.

Nice atmosphere, nice and quiet. Great service. The pizza was good. The lamb was expensive for the amount you got. The beet salad was okay. You would like it more if you like pickled things. Not exactly what we were expecting for the price we paid.

Good place if you're seeking something different. Excellent service and lots of different things on the menu but not a good place for quiet conversation. It's extremely noisy.

Been here several times. Personally, I love the brisket/bone marrow.
But they have several other unique menu items that are very appealing and well made.
I highly recommend Victor Tangos.

PS
Service is great too.

Great location and great ambiance, however the food is too complicated to even make sense of what they're trying to go for. A common theme is muddled and the flavor combinations don't work. When we asked our waitress to explain a dish, she responded, "it's pretty self explanatory." Then, failed to be able to describe it herself. Will I come back? Maybe, the manger was extremely attentive and that's all we wanted.

The food was delicious, highly recommend the mac and cheese, carnitas tacos and lamb flatbread. The cocktails were great as well.

The service was poor, we had a table of 9 and most of our drinks were never refilled after we sat down. The waitress only asked half the table if they'd like another drink and even then she forgot to bring them back to the bar. We had a 10th person arrive late from the airport and she never offered him a menu or a drink.

Chose VT for our anniversary. When I made the reservation, I noted such. The waitress did not say anything about it, so that was a bit of a let down. Also, I asked for her recommendation and she couldn't provide one. Lastly, she was more interested with the 2 single males at the table next to us, causing the close-out process to drag on for 30 minutes.

The food and drinks were great as was the service. My wife is gluten free and they have a gluten free menu, she thought there were plenty of choices. Unfortunately the only gluten free desert was vanilla ice cream.

We went to Victor Tango's on a date night and wanted to try it since we live close to the neighborhood. It was just a bad experience all around and we will not be back. It is advertised as tapas. It is not. Extremely overpriced. Food was either bland, or just not good. It seemed two people were waiting on us and neither could accomplish any task. Need water, that might be 10 minutes. Order 1 glass of wine, each shows up 3 minutes apart with a glass. Waiter suggests one thing, two unrelated things show up with the other server. It was weird, bad, way overpriced, uninspired, poorly managed. I can't believe anyone would ever go here twice. It won't last.

They characterize their food as tapas. But their portions are plentiful. And the quality is gourmet and adventurous. Be sure to save room for their toffee cake. It is AMAZING! Their cocktails are inventive and delicious.

This was my first time here. I really like the tapas style menu. The grilled octopus was amazing. I will definitely be back. For me the only real draw back is the noise. You certainly cannot have a quiet conversation here. That being said, it is still a great place. My companions really liked it.

Great choice of food selections and cocktails. Wait staff was friendly, helpful and very prompt. Attentive to all of our guests. Loved the high energy and the people watching . . . .but would be too loud for those that aren't open to noise. Valet parking was great.
