Friday and Saturday - 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The food was good, but the portions are very small. Between 4 of us, we got 8 plates and were starving by the end (even with a $250 bill). I would still go again, but with different exceptions.
The temperature in the restaurant was cold and every woman was wearing a jacket.
We highly enjoyed our experience at Tanta! The server was so friendly and knowledgeable and guided us through our tasting journey. She even paced out our dishes so we could enjoy our wine and relax and have little tasting dishes in intervals. It was super romantic, the food was extremely impressive, and such an enjoyable evening. Would highly recommend for romantic date night, or foodies looking for an Argentinian experience in the city.
Tanto has excellent service and amazing food. We were very impressed overall!
Loved it..1st time and enjoyed it from beginning to the end!!Everyone should go!!
Amazing food and service. Definitely recommend the chef's table. Chef Julian was a absolute delight.
We had a wonderful meal with fantastic service. Could not decide what to order so opted for the "let us cook for you". Wow! Especially enjoyed the back ribs, bavette and the tuna....but everything we had was great. One of our party is a wine maker from France and i have to mention that he was really impressed with the extensive wine list and the knowledgeable sommelier.
Every dish was delicious and uniquely prepared to perfection. Especially loved the grilled squid, beef epanadas, and flat iron steak!
Food was expensive with small portions, but overall worth it. I never enjoyed having to essentially sit with two other tables after performing a balancing act to get to my seat- realizing this is just a reality for small downtown restaurants across Toronto.
Great spot if you're a meat eater! The steaks are mouth watering and cooked perfectly!
Fabulous. Great food, great room, great service. Loved all of it and would come back in a second.
We went for an early and quick dinner and, by choice, sat at the bar. We tried several menu items - the squid, the tongue, the sweetbreads, the sourdough bread with tallow - and were impressed with every one.
The service (Conor, our bartender, and Madeleine, the sommelier) was absolutely perfect.
We definitely will be back when we can spend more time.
Great food and service.. Portions are on the smaller side.. But I would definitely go back again
Absolutely amazing food and service!
Excellent menu executed well. Highly recommend. Be sure to push your culinary boundaries!
My husband and I enjoyed an excellent meal at Tanto. The menu was surprisingly unique and every dish perfectly executed. The sommelier Madeline help pick the prefect wine to go with our food and Connor at the bar kept us entertained. The decor could use a refresh but the open kitchen with its wood burning fire is the spotlight. We will definitely be back!
This was a special dinner,celebrating the 20th anniversary of our oldest son who is married to an Argentinian lady(this is an Argentinian restaurant), and the 3rd anniversary of our youngest son. I booked the reservation on Open Table but called the restaurant to give them this information. Service was helpful & attentive. They presented us with a plate of cookies and a candle at the end of the meal - which was an O.K. gesture. I felt that they could have made a little more of a celebratory effort, especially since it was a very expensive meal.
However everyone thought that it was excellent and we had a great evening !
I knew I was in for a treat when I saw Bone Marrow butter on the menu as I browsed Tanto's menu online. What I was even more pleasantly surprised with was the warm and unpretentious atmosphere, and the friendly and professional service. The food is outstanding, the cocktail serving generous... the only annoying thing for me was to have to pay for 4 slices of bread. That was the only negative thing for the evening. The space has great lighting and is vibrating with energy. It can be super noisy and so, not the best place for an intimate dining experience, but the flip-side of it is that you will definitely come out of feeling energized and not sleepy. Highlights were the smoked ricotta empanadas, the grilled tongue, the braised rabbit, and the sweetbreads. The bavette was also over-the-top delicious! Definite recommend!
Was quite disappointed that several items mentioned and recommended in almost every review of Tanto were removed from the menu. Namely the grilled cabbage, potato churros, bavette and banana and dulce de leche milhojas. Therefore, we were forced to blindly order new dishes. Sweetbreads were tasty. Ribs were extremely tender. The star dish was the grilled squid. The flavors were phenomenal, but the portion small. Overall, the prices I found were a touch high for what you received. Pleasant meal, but nothing spectacular.
The restaurant has an amazing atmosphere with friendly knowledgable staff all happy to assist. Let them guide you through their incredible menu and you won't be disappointed. Truly the best dining experience start to finish!
The restaurant has a “let us cook for you” option which I LOVE. Decor is beautiful and lighting is relaxing. Servers are professional and intelligent.
Our server Sam was amazing! All the food was absolutely delicious but definitely on the pricey side. Some dishes could have been bigger. Overall had a wonderful experience.
We were celebrating a birthday in our group of 6. Food and drink were great, we would go back for sure. Took stars off because of 1. Fruit flies everywhere which can be a bit unappetizing and 2. We felt a bit rushed from our table at the end (really should figure out a way to balance encouraging good paying tables to stay and not kick them out vs maximizing turnover!).
Fabulous meal and even better service by staff. Items came to our table in a very timely and organized pattern. Tanto started our evening out perfectly and was one of the highlights. Thank you.
Great food fabulous service. Will definitely go back
The meal and service was excellent like,the other restaurants they own. Will go back very soon.
not good, inexperienced and transactional staff, bad food
Small portions, a little on the pricier side but well worth it because everything was absolutely delicious. Great for tapas style dining in my opinion.
Everything was extraordinary! The short ribs were a standout. Great service.
food was great , tapas style, however quite pricy for the amount you get!
Food was fantastic, would highly recommend this place.
A good friend and I dined here on a Thursday night starting at 8:30. The food was delicious, with the highlight being the grilled cabbage - a complete surprise and so flavourful. My rioja wine was excellent. The atmosphere was nice and dark with candlelight, and the tables were not too close together. The service was superb. We had an excellent evening at a lovely resto.
My wife and I celebrated an anniversary. We really enjoyed our evening. Great food and especially the service from Cesar and the rest of the team from Tanto. Would recommend!
We had a fabulous and inventive meal at Tanto for a special 60th birthday party. We shared plates and enjoyed individual entrees. Nothing disappointed and classics like short ribs and beef empanadas were heavenly. Try the radicchio salad!!!! Pricing on alcohol for bottles was also very fair. Thx Tanto
Service was attentive and warm/friendly. The food was delicious - just wish there were more of it! Satifsying - great flavours. Ambience was cozy, laidback and romantic (for us anyways). Great place to celebrate milestones as we did.
Went there for a small gathering for a friends' birthday. We had fantastic food and good servers who were on top of everything but not overbearing. The three highlights for our party were Potato Churros with Piquillo Honey, the Smoked Ricotta Empanada with Tanto Hot Sauce and the Grilled Cabbage with Egg Yolk, Pesto, and Guanciale. Wow!
Food was just average (we had a radicchio salad, the bavette and short ribs), and service was so indifferent and just bad. Our wine glasses were fully empty more than once and the person serving us really didn’t seem to want to be there at all.
Food tasted amazing, I only wish the portion was a bit bigger.
Great food, and wonderful service
