The food is very good , the service is outstanding, and the parking is fairly good. If you want a good meal with great service, I would suggest you come here. The price is not cheap, so I suggest you bring your billfold, but it is worth the price

Of all the restaurants on 30A, this is in the top three for food and service excellence. Scallops were YUM! It's #1 for a place for anniversary dinner!

We were seated immediately and service throughout the meal was top notch. The menu had just the right number of options. The Lobster Ravioli and the Panko Crusted FIsh were both excellent. The only disappointment was that the kitchen was already out of my first choice in entrees even though ours was the first seating of the evening.

Every once in a great while, you have a culinary experience that is well above expectations as well as one that you know you will always remember. Our trip to Cafe Tango was just that. Colin was our capable server, combining warmth with professionalism. The cafe is a renovated house, plenty of wood and surrounded by plantation shutters. We were... More

We were told to go here by a co-worker so we came for our anniversary dinner. It is very small and you do need reservations, I do not see it being a kid place. Service was incredible and the presentation on the food was impressive. My husband's steak was good but my dinner, The Dancing Fish, was pretty amazing! It... More

Great intimate restaurant for a parents night out away from the kids or for sophisticated adults. The attention to detail and presentation set it apart from other restaurants in the area. The wine list is surprising in its diversity for a small cafe. I highly recommend!

My husband and I love this place. The food and service are always good and consistent. It is very small so make reservations in advance. The only downside to me is that they do not have a full bar - only beer and wine. They do have a good wine list though.

We had a lovely dinner here last night. It's definitely a quaint, cozy restaurant that is perfect for a romantic dinner. The menu is small but quite good. The Spicy Shrimp Scampi appetizer was enjoyed by all b/c the sauce was so flavorful. I had the Dancing Fish and my husband had the pasta dish stuffed with veal. It was... More
