The food at Tanta was very creative and enjoyed the experience. The server brought fried plantains with a dipping sauce to the table along with our pisco sours.

We started with beef and corn empanadas, both fantastic and left you wanting more. The ribs were tasty as well as the chupe ramen with shrimp. The most interesting dish was the clasica causita, which was chilled whipped Peruvian potatoes with crab on top. It tasted like nothing we have ever eaten before and will be back! If you have any interest in Peruvian cuisine I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful menu with options that you don't often see. Peruvian is not something you see often in the US so this is a great opportunity for anyone visiting the area to try the cuisine. Excellent service that provides recommendations as well as giving detailed descriptions of the menu items. Highly recommend. We opted for several of the smaller plate items and loved all of them. The cebiche (ceviche) that we tried was outstanding.

Great environment that was modern yet unpretentious.

Tanta was a fun experience. The owner is a world renowned chef apparently (although we have never heard of him or his other restaurants) but the waiter liked talking him up.

We took all of the waiters food recommendations and the ceviche was bomb! Super delicious. I wish I ordered the entree instead of the sampler tray.

Oh and the pisco sours (like whiskey sours but made with pisco) are delicious just sort of expensive.
