Editorial review from Citysearch 11/1/2012

NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I BEEN TREATED SO POORLY!! I came here because I had a Groupon and it was by far the WORST dining experience I have ever had in my entire life. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.\r \r We walked in and immediately got the impression that the host and waiter were on something. We were seated and the waiter brought us each a drink and an appetizer. I informed him that we would be getting another appetizer, we just weren't sure which one yet. After that, we did not see the waiter or any other employee anywhere for THIRTY MINUTES!!! Finally, when we were ready for another round of drinks, we just walked up to the bar to get them and still no sign of the waiter, or any staff for that matter. So after we finished that second round and still did not see the waiter, it was then my boyfriend went to go find him. He found the waiter standing in a circle of about 4 others and had to exchange words with him to get him back to the table. At this point, I ordered the appetizer we wanted and he did not so much as apologize for completely neglecting our table or even acknowledging that we were there. \r \r I decided I did not trust eating whatever he was about to bring me. He had sent a different waiter to deal with us and both seemed like frat types who would probably spit in the food. \r \r We left the Groupon on the table and walked out, having only spend maybe $25 of its $40 value. One waiter followed us out and said we had to pay our bill. We told him the Groupon is on the table and that's it. \r \r I don't even care that I didn't get my full $40 worth. This was by far the most awful [lack of] service I have ever received in my life. It is disgusting that management lets employees treat customers this way. \r \r DO NOT COME HERE. If you are at the Block and looking for somewhere to eat, do yourself a huge favor and go anywhere else. No one deserves to be treated like a piece of garbage. And there are so many better options. more

Service is worst than ever expected 11/27/2011

This restaurant has a good location in front of the theater, and I've gone there a few times with friends to get a drink before a movie. Separately, we have all had bad experiences at this location, but this is the worst experience I've had from any restaurant. We got there and the waiter informed us of bottomless mimosas during the football game for $10 with food purchase. We placed our order of food (wings and pizzas) along with the drinks. We got our wings and a few rounds but our pizzas were taking forever to arrive. After some time, our server informed us that she made a mistake and that we needed to order food per person (another $50 worth of food that we didn't plan on spending or eating). After getting the owner involved and him recognizing that it was the mistake of our server and we didn more

Horrible Service and a Horrible Owner 4/16/2011

We will never be returning. The service was horrible. from the beginning the hostess seemed bothered when we walked in. She treated us like she was doing us a favor. We were waiting to be seated and were waiting for 45 minutes when there were plenty of empty tables. We asked about the wait and the owner came to us and starting talking to us like we were children and telling us that we were lying and my boyfriend was upset and got into a shouting match. He was a jerk and I do not understand how this place is still open. more


DO NOT GO HERE! TURN AND RUN! 0 stars if I could! lets start with the owner, what a rude horrid business man. A real piece of CRAP! I received a gift coupon for thirty dollars that was purchased on the internet as GIFT I presented it to the bartender BEFORE ordering and it was accepted and I along with my friend were served. All was good until I said we were ready to cash out. The bartender returned with a man who rudely told me it had expired I looked at the coupon and pointed out the expiration date was two weeks from the present date. He pointed out a expiration date of one month earlier in the fine print. I ask how can you have two different dates on your coupon? his response was it does not matter anyway it is a fake. and I was committing fraud. I assured him it was a gift and i was in no way attempting to commit fraud and ask how he wanted to handle this since his employee took it and served me without bringing this to my attention? He said""its not my problem"" so I offered to split the bill with him and he said I am not splitting anything with you and walked away. I paid the bill and went to discuss this further with the ass hole. I offered to leave the coupon with him so he could use it to educate his employees to be on the look out for this type of thing and he told me he had no intentions of doing anything of the sort. I travel for work and eat in anywhere from 5 to 20 restaurants per week and have never been treated so rude in any restaurant anywhere ever. This place has been here since the block opened he must be a new owner otherwise I have no idea how he could still be in business. I will stand in front of him and tell him what I think of him anytime I am drug back within 100 yards of his horrible s#@t hole! more

The best drinks in town 3/8/2009

I visited this place on a friday night and the atmosphere was great. I loved their margaritas and their mojitos are the bomb. Apetizers can get pricey but are worth the extra buck. If you waiting for a movie or just want to relax and have fun this is your spot Pros: Their drinks and taste of apetizers Cons: Pricey more

Tango no more! 11/17/2008

I visited Cafe Tu Tu Tango for a night out with my bro, girlfriend and friends. We had good service and ok food. I come there for the red sangria and the duck quesadilla. So we enjoyed the night drinking and one of my friend got a little sick because a little too much alochol, so I signed the check and went to check up on him in the restroom. While we got back to the table to leave, the guy manager during that night (10pm-12am Thursday night) told my bro ""Please do me a favor and do not come back to Cafe Tu Tu Tango ever again because you left no tip for the waitress"" When I heard this I was appalled and shock on a management would believe we did not tip purposely. Yes, my honest mistake we forgot to tip on cash. I signed the check as zero tip and put tip on cash. But besides the fact, he dealt with the situation very poorly to tell us in public ""Not to come back ever again to Cafe Tu Tu Tango"" I was embarrassed in front of my brother who came down to visit and my girlfriend. We ended tipping the waitress because it was brought to our knowledge, but in that manner by management was unacceptable. I work at a restaurant, so I know how tipping is important for servers."" To go to Cafe Tu Tu Tango again is an insult to me and to anyone who happen to forget to tip. i wonder what he would say if someone gave a short ended tip? You guys decide....NO MORE at the Tango Pros: ok drinks Cons: managment, customer service more

Tango and less cash! 4/26/2007

Awesome place! Great food, great service, and it won't put a dent in your wallet. They have cute little plates you can pass around for everyone to enjoy. Highly recommended for groups and even first dates! I've been going here since college. Now that I'm married with a 3 year old daughter, we still come here for dinner . We usually reserve tickets for a movie first, then we eat at TuTu Tango for dinner while we wait for the movie. My standby favorite is the Gator Bites. YES, GATOR BITES!! Trust me, it tastes just like chicken (with an ever so slight hint of fish..not fishy, but fresh fish). If you happen to be in the OC, I recommend that you stop by this place! Pros: Great food, awesome cocktails Cons: Can get crowded, especially when there's a movie premiere across the way more

cafe and gallery combo 3/7/2007

It's like the American/French version of dim sum, except replace the waiters with carts with balloon artists! Cafe Tu Tu is a place you go more for the experiece than the food, though the food's great too. There are artworks hanging everywhere that are all on sale, making it feel like a restaurant and gallery in one. it's a good place to go ifyou're not feeling TOO hungry, and you just want to hang out somewhere that has a artsy vibe and live entertainment. more

Best Place for a Private Event! 2/12/2007

I recently threw a suprise party for my mother there and it was wonderful! They have a private room for large parties, and you can even higher your own entertainment for your event! The staff was wonderful, the food was fantastic, and they made it very easy for me to set up my party! Tango has now become our new favorite ""hot spot"" on the weekends. It's our favorite place to go for some amazing Sangria and great appetizers!\r \r I recommend their lunch too. They have a great lunch menu of burgers and ""design your own"" sandwhiches at very reasonable prices. Pros: Ambiance, Service, Entertainment, Great Food! more

User review by laidback 5/5/2005

Have been here many many times. It is always on our list if we want something spur of the moment. The staff is courteous and attentive. Great daily selections of food. Pros: Excellent Food, Great Drinks, Great wines more

Don't bother! 4/15/2005

I've been to this place a couple of times figuring it will get better;it hasn't. For some reason, every time my husband/friends and I have been here the beer is flat and the other drinks are not very good in general. I've ordered food here once and was definintely not impressed. The atmosphere is nice and the staff has always been good but honestly, people go here for the drinks and they are just not good. Pros: atmosphere Cons: food, drinks, crowded more

Great Party Place! 2/7/2004
