"I've been to Tangata twice since they remodeled. I don't care for the new interior; it feels somewhat cold and like a cafeteria. The outdoors is very nice, of course, as before. The menu feels more limited than it was before, however my burger the first time I was there was very good, the Asian Pesto Shrimp salad I had this time was outstanding. Service was attentive and friendly."

"I met a friend for lunch at Tangata. The ambience was perfect. Beautiful lighting and scenery all around, including in the ceiling, which is almost entirely a skylight. The noise level was such that you felt the excitement of dining in a public place, but perfect, in that you could carry on a conversation without shouting and screaming, "WHAT" at every reply! The food was delicious and served well, with just one hiccup, which was the omission of the baguette with the steamed clams. What do you do with the broth without a baguette to break up and dip into it? We indulged in dessert which was wonderful, as was the Intelligentsia coffee."

"The entres were unimaginative, scanty and disappointing. The desserts were a joke! What little they did have were for the most part gone long before the end of the brunch period. Cookies are not my idea of a special dessert."

"We have dined previously at Tangata numerous times, always impressed with the quality of the food and service. We had our family brunch here at Easter. Unfortunately, the quality of the food and level of service has dropped dramatically. I would rate it only as fair. The poorest point was the value. The most disappointing part was the very limited selection of food items coupled with the high price per person of $39.95. We have attended other brunches at the same price point that provided 5 times the selection of quality items. We were also upset that they would charge $9.00 for one mimosa. I don't think we will be returning to Tangata."

"The Tangata is located at the beautiful bowers museum. It is a pleasant lunch spot after a visit to the museum However for a special occasion brunch we find it uninspired and lacking in food quality. The presentation as well as food choice is not up to a high standard. The service is friendly but unpolished. We are frequent partrons of the Museum and occasionally lunch at the Tangata. I would recommend this restaurant for a casual lunch."

"Love the new menu at this restaurant. Our service was so below par for this place. We were on time for our reservation and were seated immediately. There were 3 tables already seated when we entered. It took a lot of time for our server to come to the table. We ordered Ice tea and coffee..... time passed. The waiter came back for our order after about 15 minutes. 30 minutes later we looked around the room which now was completely full and realized everyone was eating but us. No one we contacted could fine our server. We are now 45 minutes into sitting and no lunch. Finally the server brings us our food and disappeared again coming back 10 later to see if everything is fine. We finished lunch and waited for waiter to get check as we were now on borrowed time. I had to leave and finally my daughter found someone she thought was a manager to pay the check so she could leave. Food great. We saw other server so attentive we wish we had one of them."

"Tangata has had an overhaul. The place sparkles with a rich red ambiance. The outdoor dining has been enhanced by the spotty umbrella shade being removed and colorful shade cloth has been installed. Outdoor dining seems intimate now and the shade is welcome. As always the food dominates, wonderful perfectly cooked Angus beef burger with crispy sweet potato fries. Very interesting Caesar salad, not traditional, but very good. Generally service is excellent, but it was a bit lackluster on this visit. It's always a treat to visit Tangata when we visit the Bowers."
