Tantalum is a really nice-looking place. The view is beautiful. I've been in for dinner a couple times and didn't enjoy the food for the prices. That's not totally true. I really liked the appetizers. They were totally worth the price. I just haven't really enjoyed any of the entrees I've had there. As a bar, it's nice. Although service tends to be a bit slow. The atmosphere is nice, though.

My daughter and her boyfriend were visiting from memphis tn. so me and my wife took them to the tantalum for drinks and dinner, our bartender was alissa she appeared to be a charming young lady, we all ordered drinks as we looked over the menu my wife ordered a glass of chardonnay, and when it was delivered by alissa the glass was very dirty, my wife brought this to alissa's attention, she apologized and took the wine away, while standing only a few feet away from us she poured the wine from the dirty glass and into another glass, right before handing it back to my wife she looked at the glass carefully and then noticed it too was dirty, she then poured the wine into a third glass and handed it to my wife, we then requested a manager and a young blond girl who was posing as a manager came to our area and apoligized and had the problem corrected, when she left the bartender alissa was going from bartender to bartender openly angery that we talked to a manager and pretty much ignored us for the rest of our short visit there and displayed a obvious attitude. i made a call to the restaurant to make a complaint with april johnson. By far the worst service ive ever had!!! Beautiful restaurant, pretty good food, decent prices, TERRIBLE SERVICE!!!!!!!!! not only was alissa making comments about us but the other bartenders participated in the small talk, EXTREMELY RUDE SERVICE. Oh i was sent a fifty dollar gift certificate, which i will never use.

Went to Tantalum on a Friday night for a dinner-date a@ 9:30pm. We had no problem getting a table right away which directly overlooked the water. We sat close to the bar, but far enough away to have personal conversation although it was hard to talk over the loud music. My salmon dish was very good, the chicken dish was ok. We spent $65 on dinner (2 entrees, 1 drink from bar, 1 juice). Waiter was friendly and prompt. From the website, I thought it would be more of a ""dressy"" place, but its more of a CASUAL dining/hang-out place. Overall, I would come back to hang with friends or stop-in while shopping, but wouldn't recommend it for a DATE.

It sits in the Best Buy and Acapulco parking lot, but once we walked in, we were transformed to a beautiful 270 degree view of the bay. I really like the small plates- ahi tuna tartar was delicious, pork belly was scrumptious, and loved the kobe sliders. The waitress was so nice, even offered to watch my friend's 6 mo. old while she was eating. One minor criticism would be the restroom situation- the ladies room got very crowded with women fixing their make-up. We're definitely will going back there, maybe on a week night next time.

The view is great- boats and water and sunset. We always enjoy the cocktails, the food is great but the service is Horrible!! So many people behind the bar continually walking by without greeting customers, The service people seem preoccupied with something other than making sure the customers have drinks. It's not very apparent who is in control of the bar. We had to encourage the 2 men who sat at the bar next to us that we had the same treatment when we arrived. The cocktails are really good but they aren't overflowing the glasses.

The view is excellent. Very romantic atmosphere. Had a problem getting seated though. We were told THREE times our table was ready and then each time were told we had to wait again. A little frustrating when you are talking with friends and keep getting moved from place to place. It may have been because it was a Friday night and they were kind of crowded, but expected more. Their food and drinks were excellent (although a bit on the pricy side). We all agreed while eating that next time we would just come for the drinks and the view and skip dinner!
