Tanta is dedicated to sharing the flavors and culture of Peru with Chicago, serving authentic Peruvian dishes and beverages in an approachable, fun and casual downtown setting. We provide service that is casual yet knowledgeable, genuine and attentive, utilizing locally sourced products and vendors that are sensitive to sustainable farming and fishing.

Tanta has two Chef’s Tables that each seat up to 10 people. These tables are located in our main dining room in between our open kitchen and cebiche bar which allows you and your guests to experience our chefs creating Peruvian cuisine while you dine.

The menu, created by Acurio and Tanta Chicago Chef Giancarlo Valera, takes diners on a voyage through Peru via its food. From the Pacific Ocean, through the Andes, to the desert, to the Amazon, Tanta celebrates the diverse landscape and ethnicities that make up Peru’s culture.

Food is interesting, I’d call it Peruvian-Asian fusion. We had the octopus which was well done, lightly charred on the oil it’s use and tender on the inside. The complementing sauce didn’t do anything to the dish, quite bland. $25. Hmm. Then Toro, a tea tuna dish. $30 for 5 tiny slices in a vinegary sauce. It was good, but barely qualifies for an appetizer. May be an amuse bouche.. main dish with beef tenderloin was fine- the meat was excellent, veggie stir fry Chinese style. Oh, and the drinks were excellent. Overall a good restaurant, however I don’t understand the hype. And definitely way overpriced.

Le pisco sour nous a rappelé notre séjour à Arequipa. Un incontournable à Chicago.

Peruvian good is unlike any other and it was fun to explore the menu. Our waiter Oscar, was terrific and helpful but lots of other people brought out hood, cleared the table and attended to us as well. The mixed seafood seviche was a knockout and different than other seviche I’ve had . We also had the scallop in Parmesan foam appetizer that had 2 scallops, beautifully plated and delicious. The yucca fries were interesting but rich and came with a mustard sauce which I didn’t love so we concentrated on the rice with shrimp omelet dish which was outstanding. The chef graciously substituted chicken for the pork and the portion was almost too much to finish. We also tried the Peruvian corn cake which was a nice blend of sweet and spicy (accompanying sauce). The only down side was that the restaurant was exceptionally noisy making it difficult to talk but in addition to the human noise they played intriguing music which added to the atmosphere.

Right after we sat at our table we ordered some sparkling water. The busser brought it out but right after he poured me a full glass I realized the glass was filthy and asked for a new one. He seemed bothered although it was clear that the glass was very dirty. He didn't offer to replace the bottle or apologize for our inconvenience. The server then came in a rush, greeted us extremely fast and when we finally ordered drinks tried to upsell us on a slightly pricier pisco sour. I declined the offer and said I would take the classic (as listed on the menu). However, he brought out the other one (only $1 more expensive). I wasn't going to make a big deal for $1 but it was clear he didn't care about our experience when my friend ordered a pisco herself and also brought her out the wrong one. It bothered me because I had established that he had gotten me the wrong one and he just acted like it was me who was confused. No dude, we understand you make a mistake once, but twice? This guy clearly cared more about his check average than our experience. Food was delicious and drinks were good, so we will come back but will request a different server if I get sat on this guy's section again. He's awful.

All staff just seemed not to care much, especially our server. Our server spilled some of my drink onto the table and my pants. They barely even cared. Seems like Tanta is past its prime and only wants your money unfortunately.

Service wasn’t good—maybe they don’t have enough wait staff. It was the beginning of the day. The waitress didn’t get our order correct and we waited at the table for a long time. We finally called her over she said she hadn’t ordered the food—she put it in and we still waited a long time for our food. The restaurant manager did comp the late food. Don’t think we will return for a good long time. So sad.

It tasted like someone topped the plate off with salt on the top layer cause it wasn’t all throughout the rice I had. The hostess and the waiter were very nice. The ambiance was great. The waiter came right away when I asked for the check. Ran my card right there which was cool. Left him a tip in cash. I’d give it another try one day.

Ceviche Small portions and it was cut wrong. Empanada excellent. pisco sour was awesome, but they were out of vermouth for other signature drink, so did not get to try it. Service was good and rooftop dinning was a nice surprise.

Nice ambiance and good Latin music! and cozy rooftop...(patio heaters on chill days would be great too!) I just wished they had more options for the entree... But overall, my family and I had a great time!

My only issue was that our waiter kept pressuring us to order more after we explicitly said we were not interested at least 3 times, to which he kept pushing and following with "maybe an entree to go?". I thought that was really lacking tact and inappropriate. 1) Please train your staff how to appropriately interact with customers and MUCH more importantly 2) Compensate your staff well enough so that they're not put in situations where they're pressuring customers to order more so they can have decent wages. If it weren't for that one experience, I would go back, but that left a bad taste in my mouth so I won't be returning

Tanta does a fine job in presenting it. The pisco sours and ceviche were wonderful. Simple fried potatoes came with three tasty, distinctively different dipping sauces. The waiter provided useful advice. The restaurant is conveniently located with respect to both the Loop and Near Northside. I will return when I next get to Chicago.

Then the valet lost our car - took close to 30 minutes for them to find it and they still charged us. Food was good but service very poor.
