Tango Nuevo is one of the best local spots to eat at in Kingston. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the staff are absolutely incredible. You are immediately greeted with a friendly face and the attentiveness by their servers throughout your dining experience is outstanding. As someone with a food allergy I find Tango extremely accommodating as they want to ensure you have the best experience possible. Where do I begin with the food! I have yet to go wrong with any of the dishes offered at Tango. Carne picante has to be one of my favourite dishes and their tuna tataki is also a must try. You truly can’t go wrong with anything you order here. Be sure you peruse the drink menu which offers delicious signature cocktails that leave you wanting more. Do yourself a favour and order the Kunefe for dessert, you will thank me later! I have had the opportunity to dine in the beautiful Bodega downstairs which provides an intimate environment if you’re looking for a nice private evening with friends/family. I recently ordered online using “Tango To Go” which was very easy to use and pickup was seamless. I truly cannot say enough good things about Tango; we are lucky to have this restaurant here in town!

As much as I enjoy cooking and sharing meals with loved ones Tango Nuevo’s To Go meal last weekend was a welcomed reprieve from our current living situation. No, you don’t get the amazing experience and atmosphere from being there, but you do get the familiar taste of quality food you could expect in use. Packaged carefully and delivered on time to our car by a familiar face was responsible and warm experience. In fact, it was so good that we ordered our “Easter Dinner” yesterday for tonight and it was amazing. This evening our family feasted on Tuna Tataki, Spicy Sambal Shrimp, Brussel Sprouts and the Easter Feature, Lamb with amazing sides and accompaniments! The whole experience with your restaurant (not just the food) was a big part of our memories and our conversation. Thank you for making a bleak Easter more joyful and delicious! We look forward to the entire Tango experience but will continue to treat ourselves with Tango Nuevo To Go until then.

My 16 year old son (who is a self proclaimed foodie) and I visited Tango Nuevo on Saturday night. There were no tables available without a reservation so we sat at the bar together - I’m so glad we did! The staff work very hard here, creating lovely drinks with fresh ingredients and herbs. We tried the veg empanadas, scallops, beef tacos, pork ribs, and more. All dishes were beautifully plated and tasted even better! It was incredible food, and a sophisticated atmosphere without ever feeling stuffy or uncomfortable. We will visit Kingston and will DEFINITELY eat here again when we do! I don’t think I’ll ever enjoy scallops the same way again now that my bar has been raised. Well done Tango Nuevo!

Met up with a few friends for drinks and apps. Even though we enjoyed all of the dishes, we tried (avocado tartar was our fav) the cost at the end of the night, was just too much for the amount/quality we got. Cheese/meat board wasn't worth the cost. We should have just stuck with the apps.

If you want to spend over $300 for 4 people and still walk away hungry, then this is the place for you. You can also sit outside on their patio with no lighting and plants sharing your meal with you. Pretension is the word of the day here, with ooing and awing as the servers spout off 30 word descriptions of tiny dishes of poultry, meat and seafood that will leave you inspired but famished later. Don't waste you money or your time

The service was very welcoming. The waitress was attentive and warm. The menu was extensive and provided a great variety. However, the quality of the food was underwhelming given the price point. Some dishes were excellent, such as the sambal shrimp, Atlantic scallops, and octopus pintxo. Some were mediocre, such as the steak. Some were extremely bland however, such as the meatballs, Turkish ravioli, and duck breast. We had hoped the consistency seen in the amazing dishes would be maintained, but unfortunately, half of the dishes did not deliver for us.

My partner and I frequently go out to eat but since it is New Years we decided to pick a place we thought was special. For New Years they have a set menu which is a four course meal for $90. The portions were small which is expected for a higher end restaurant but with it being higher end you expect it to be higher quality as well. The salad was quite plain, the scallops were uneven sizes and in my opinion could have used an additional scallop, the lamb tacos were also underwhelming. The food was good but was not good enough for the level of restaurant we were at. We discussed and agreed that the restaurant was a 4/5 stars in various categories but 3/5 for value. Leaving us to rate the restaurant 3.5/5. Because the bill was a large amount and we were somewhat disappointed with our meal we didn’t leave a large tip. When the waitress saw the tip she put it on the table and walked away without saying anything. Which was quite rude as you shouldn’t expect a tip but rather earn one but that’s a whole discussion on its own. However, it gets worse. Our 5minute drive home was spent arguing over who gets to use the bathroom first because we were both going to $hit ourselves. As we have one bathroom we had to keep swapping out. After 30minutes our $250 meal was down the drain. Which leads us to conclude this experience to be a 2/5 stars. This was a rather fitting way to end a $hitty year.

First time in a few years that'd we'd been back to Kingston for dinner and were looking forward to our return visit to Tango Nuevo. There were 3 adults in our party and we had reservations. PROS: Seated immediately; attentive waitstaff; a generous table/seating arrangement; the most attractive restaurant design in the city. CONS: The jug of (red) "sangria" was filled to the brim with ice, as were our glasses; it was a light pink colour vs. a deeper red and tasted like fruit juice with a splash of wine; the fresh fruit had clearly not been macerated in the wine and I couldn't identify any of liqueurs that the menu promised. Pulled out as much ice as my side plate would hold so it wouldn't further dilute, but that didn't help...VERY disappointing! Great sangria is key to the tapas experience. A limited, not-very-exciting wine list. In lieu of the sad sangria, we settled for a couple of 9 ounce glasses of a red from Spain which was 'meh' at best, a house wine, really. Heavy-handed with the "aioli" sauce. 6 tapas plates + 2 "tiramisu" + 2 glasses of red = $247.00 including a generous tip and tax. Note: this is the total after the jug of sangria was removed from our bill.

First evening, Oct 15th was exceptional. This unique, cozy Tapas restaurant was so well represented by our waiter David, friendly and very well versed with food and wine menu. He made excellent recommendations and we loved every dish. We then cancelled reservations for another restaurant for Oct 16 and came again to Nuevo. David was not our server but took time to come over and welcome us back. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant

We were delighted to be left with no reservations for dinner and lucked into a gap at Tango Nuevo. The service and knowledge of the dishes was excellent and the food was creative and delicious. Great for a romantic dinner, to expand your palette and enjoy atmosphere and music that all ties together.

Oh my the chefs here are really on the ball with hitting the right spot for the ultimate dining experience. The waitress that we had she was amazing also really on the ball experience had good knowledge of the tapas menu and the wine selection also. We had first a special scallops with purée potatoes and wine sauce melted in your mouth was impressive tastes, then we moved onto the octopus which I’m not a big fan of but again was impressive tastes they had served really well with feta picked onion house made very good, next was Spicy beef comes with 4 soft shell tacos wow all l can say is I’m enjoying my self so much with the tastes next was Thai cod curry and yet again wow cod seared perfectly loving this then because of all the spices I thought that lamb kebab served with soft tacos sweet would be the perfect end to the meal and yes hit the spot perfectly I also explained to the waitress that we didn’t want a dessert but we took the lamb just to ease away from all the spices and flavour that was outstanding. I would happily go back again and again throughly enjoyed.

For those who enjoy “grazing” the tapas menu is ideal. Everything is offered as a small plate to share with the table. The Sambal Shrimp and Lamb Tacos were excellent, flavourful, a hint of spice, very enjoyable. The Turkish ravioli on the other hand were bland, and the Mediterranean Eggplant was tasty, but the skin left on was bitter and chewy. Some excellent choices on the charcuterie plate. Each plate runs around $20. Overall, a nice way to spend several hours getting caught up with friends we haven’t seen in a very long time.

Good Food Good Service Great Wait Staff a tapas menu divided into four sections and you cannot go wrong with any of the things on the menu. The highlight must be the garlic shrimp, The wine list was decent with a good selection. Take your time over small sharing plates. Maggie our server had a great sense of timing with the way our dinner plates rolled out. On a Tuesday night the place was buzzing with dinners and wait staff. staff

What a great restaurant! Ambience was perfect. Really friendly and informative service, and outstanding food. They got everything right. We ate avocado tartare, chorizo, tuna and lamb tacos . Rounded off with a nice Malbec. Fresh, and flavoursome. Our server suggested 3 dishes each but four for two people was more than enough. Well done to the owners and restaurant team!

We enjoyed our dinner at Tango Nuevo. The ambience was vibrant with mostly young patrons. The music was lively. We ordered 7 tapas among 3 adults. We preferred the meat tapas over the seafood and veggie tapas, except for the tuna nachos which was really delicious. We would definitely return if we visit Kingston again!
