For a truly unique experience, give Tantra a shot. Beautiful decor, mood lighting, great food, great music. Such a sexy place. Whoa!!!!! Expensive, but who cares! It's a special occassion place that really sets the mood. Bring a date to impress. It's tops. Service could be better but at least the waiters will try to charm you. Drinks are smoth and sexy. Have a few before the amazing appetizers. Try this sexy spot with someone special. You're in for a really special treat!

We absolutley loved it! We went with about 10 friends and had a great time. The food was divine and the service was incredible. The wine list and special Tantra's martini list was very nice and so was the service. That made our evening! I would definetely go again!
Pros: great food, great service

Went to Tantra for dinner on Monday night and had a blast. If you like meat cooked right you will not be disappointed. The drinks were great and our waiter had some great suggestions. He was from England, super nice with no attitude that I have read about here. After dinner the Monday night party kicked off with great music and a packed house. We will be back.

Real cool spot for a date, but fellas, make sure your pockets are phat. A little over priced. Waiters take a little long for the food to come out. Overall, a really great experience! But too much for this economy.

My experience at Tantra Restaurant and Lounge, 1445 Pennsylvania Avenue, was an indulgence which I highly recommend to everyone. Tantra is truly one of Miami Beach's oldest and best dining establishment ... From the foie gras to the out of this world sea bass to the decadent goddes dessert ... My five senses were pleasantly overwhelmed. The beautiful d????cor, international music, and extremely handsome Latino waiter, Tantra is a dining experience that I will enjoy again and again

This restaurant, from the moment you walk in, it keeps you in touch with all your senses :) The service is great.. They are very welcoming and knowledgable of their job.. The food is amazing!! They have food from all around the world. So whatever you're craving, they have it! There is so much to choose from! The presentation of the food takes regular fine dining to a whole different level! If you are there to eat and dance, I suggest you come on Mondays.. Monday is the BEST night! The music is great, especially if you're into house music, this is the place to be! But if you are just looking for a relaxing dinner, definitely come on the other days of the week.. This upscale restaurant is relaxing and will definitely have you coming back :)

I went to TANTRA because my friend was throwing a party there. I had so much fun and the DJ was great. Nice decor and atmosphere. The drinks were pretty good also. Overall it was a great place, if you are a steak lover, then Tantra should be your top choice. Service is great, the music of good taste and the food fantastic.Best steak in town. Staff friendly and beautiful. The place to be on Monday nights. A liitle bit of a wait to get in but worth it.

What makes Tantra the hottest Spot on Mondays are the Vibe, Music and the People, but the staff is rude and should as mandatory be more polite, the front door guy treats people like nothing, double charge admission price when the house is getting packed, the security are very rude nasty giant creatures, though the servers are nice and also the bartenders. The atmosphere is good and decoration is ok, if they change some of the staff maybe it'd make that better, but the best is that guy playing the platters percussion . I can't mention about food cause I only order vodka martinis which are good!!!

I only have amazing comments about this excellent restaurant that I heard of it before but it was an amazing and unforgettable experience. I went to Miami for my HONEY MOON AND WE WENT TO TANTRA ON A MONDAY NIGHT. We loved the variety of martinis they have, I had a martini specialty of the house called tantric kiss which it was out of control. Then we had a tantra plate which it was a seafood platter beautiful presented and full of flavor and taste. My husband had filet mignon which it was very tender and drizzled with a coffe sauce that gave the filet a different variation. I had sea bass that by far the best one I ever had served with somr spinach and asparagus and it had a lemon caper sauce wow! . Service was excellent, beautiful and polite people, prices are good remember that this is not a taco bell or mac donalds and for a place upscale like tantra prices were good. In conclusion best experience and highly recomended from my side.

I am impressed. I have heard about Tantra over the years but this was my first visit. My only regret is that I waited so long to patronize this place.The food was absolutely amazing. We were a large group and our food was served timely and the food presentations were beautiful, as was the staff I might add. And no pompous attitude either! I had the diver scallop appetizer special and the Lamb Duo entree. Both were exquisitely prepared and delightfully flavored. The rackoflamb was served with a slow braised lamb shank stew seasoned to perfection with a medley of Indian spices. This was the peak experience of my meal. Everyone at our table was raving about their menu choices. The entire experience was exceptional; from the dinner to the dessert, the DJ, the music, the dancing, the atmosphere, etc. Definitely a place I will make a ritual whenever I am in Miami. Well done!!

My husband and I just went to Tantra for his birthday dinner. We go out to eat a lot (we live in NYC and lived in Chicago before that). This restaurant wouldn't survive for 2 weeks in New York! The food was mediocre at best. My tuna tartar entree was so tough that I could barely saw through it and my husband's lobster risotto was literally floating in a greasy pool of butter. We had one cocktail, one glass of wine, 2 appetizers, and 2 entrees. The bill was $238! The service was unprofessional (two separate wait staff came at different times to tell us the specials and take our order; our entrees came out before we finished our appetizers; I ordered a glass of pinot noir and was brought a shiraz; etc. ). The decor was tacky and they put a huge bunch of red balloons in the middle of our table for my husband's birthday. As a result, we couldn't even see each other, so we moved them to another table. As much as we love South Beach...with its many excellent restaurants...we were very disappointed with Tantra on all levels and would not recommend it to anyone.

Hostess was so frazzled I find it hard to believe they let her run the door on a busy Monday night. The table we sat at for two was so close to the next that I think my booty grazed another guest?s plate when I was trying to take my seat. Server was great. I hope she makes money there because you can tell that with her poised attitude that she was far better than the other girls prancing around in minuscule skirts and backless shirts. I couldn't even find a thing on the menu that enticed me, which is strange because I frequently dine out, fine dine at that, love tasting new things and am quite adventurous when it comes to food, and I'm in the biz. I know what food and service are supposed to be like... and I must say food was terrible... starting first with the bread which was accompanied by a sun dried tomato dip which I found to absolutely horrible, so much so that I had to, inconspicuously, emit it into my napkin. I remember one of the appetizers which was a goat cheese and tomato something or other, in which I could have done a better job making it at home, the other app escapes me, totally forgettable. My entree was okay... I finally settled on the filet and it was cooked to temperature but nothing amazing in the least. My friend had the sea bass which hadn't an ounce of flavor. We had dessert, but cannot remember what it was other than the edible flowers that were brought with it. I think those were our favorite part. We also drank with dinner and at the end, the damage for two people to have a totally horrible meal was $350. I have not a problem in the least spending money on dining out... but this was such a waste. I'd choose Michy's, Michael's, Table 8 and even Prime 112 over this place any day. And to make matters worse, when we were trying to escape this place, I couldn't even get through to the exit because there were soo many people that we had to fight out way through, blocking any imaginable path to the exit. Take my word for it... NOT WORTH IT!

Cons: Hostess, food, noise, crowd (totally cheesy), table, exit route... shall I continue?

Great food (try the Lamb and Filet) and excellent music (an array of deep, funky, rythmic and fun house mixes). However, on a Monday night, it's a little tough to get in. Coming from LA it was nice to get out and have a meal with that sorta music/scene. But as the crowd wore on, so did our patience. I recommend at least two hits of X to get through this night... Or bail by 2:30. It's a litlle rough after that, but great nonetheless!!

House music all night long! What else can I say! Party starts around midnight and goes on until 5 AM. A little hard to get in sometimes without a reservation, so plan ahead and call.

This was probably one of the most horrible experiences I ever had. You walk in and there's thumping music. No windows. Alot of darkness. Before you even have a chance to look at the menu, they pour $10 bottle of water into your glasses. Menu was way overpriced for items you have no idea what they are. I ended up paying a $100 some dollars for some of lowest priced items on the menu for 3 people. I could not wait to get out of there. It almost seemed like a death trap.

I ate dinner at Tantra last August. It was amazing. I did, however, hear that the restaurant was closed due to a health code violation lately. Regardless, my experience in August was great. I went back in December for bottle service on a Monday night. Got there around 12:30 AM, the place was packed with a great crowd. Told the bouncer we wanted a table with 2-3 bottle (3 guys, 6 girls), he took us in the back door to an awesome table in 5 minutes. The music was great and they had a live bongo play who rocked. The only downside is the bathroom situation. Since the place is small, there are only two toilets for men. Expect to wait 10 minutes every time you go. If you're ready to spend some money and have a big crowd, Tantra on Mondays is a must. Probably not a bad idea to call ahead and reserve a table.

My girlfriends and I decided to try this place despite the poor reviews, but we decided to eat some snacks before heading out to save some dough. We got 2 apppetizers and 4 martinis and the total was $120.00! Sooooo expensive!! The food was yummy though. The place itself is really cool and has great decor and ambiance. The martinis are good too, just pricey. If money is no object and youre looking for a sexy vibe, then this is your place!!

I went to Tantra expecting great food since all the local hotels recommended it. What I got instead was a well done Ahi when I ordered it RARE, a $15 martini, a mediocre salad and a pretentious waitress. Not to mention that I couldn't see how bad my food was due to the lack of lighting. Dim lighting is romantic, no lighting = Food Disguising Techniques.
BYW: Shoving a menu in a persons face while there are taking is NOT OK.

Tantra was a joke. Service was slower than slow (a least 10-15 minutes after we were seated the server came by our table and it was a SLOW night) . Everything is overpriced. A bottle of 1996 Cristal Rose was $2,500. Right. Food was not that great. Only nice thing is the atmosphere, but it is not that special.

I don't have a single positive thing to say about this restaurant. I had a reservation and had to wait an hour to be seated. Our waiter only bothered to come to our table to take our order and stand over my friend as she signed the credit card bill! Failed actors or not, the wait staff is extremely rude and not at all familier with the concept of a service-oriented industry. The food was over-priced and not very good. I wasn't prepared to pay $69 for risotto! Apparently it takes a miracle to get a glass of water...because you won't be asked if you would like one! I could get a better meal at taco bell!

The first time I went to Tantra was on tuesday night. It was quite, sultry, exotic and TASTY. Perfect for a first date. The next time was on a saturday eveningagain with my boyfriend. we sat at 9:30pm. It was much busier, however our dining experience was perfect. Around 11pm the music picked, lights dimmed and the dancing began. I have gone many times since. I love the place. WORDS TO THE WISE: if you want a quite dinner (sit before 8:30) ORon a night that does not have a party. PartyNights: are the GODDESS party on MONDAY, ENJOY friday and LUST saturday. Other days are relaxed, more for the couples less for the singles. Tell the reservationist what you expect and they will recommend when you should come.LARGE GROUPS Iprepared a bachelorette-party FOR 30women, they can accomodate large parties.

The food was great however the fit and finish of the restaurant is below expectations. A $250 meal with a waiter's butt in your face is below what I expect in any restaurant. Hanging wires and chipped paint make the place look cheap. The food was served too quickly but was excellent.

Great decor, very happening scene, beautiful helpful staff. The aphrodisiac menu is one of a kind. Not inexpensive but portions are large. After dinner we did not want to leave so we danced for hours and ended up in the VIP hammock sipping cognac until they closed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The wine list was extensive and our waiter really nice - but I was flabbergasted at the $48 pork chop. They also heavily pushed the $32 appetizer. I live in NYC and I will pay for a great meal, BUT even I think $80 before you even add in drinks is down right ludicrious. It's not all that

Tantra is at the top of the list for A-list celebrity sightings in Miami and the food and uniqueness make it a Miami must-do. They are known for Aphrodisiac cuisine, a live grass floor, awesome martinis, beautiful people and the biggest party in Miami on Monday nights. Don't go to Miami without checking this one out. You'll love it.

I don't mind the prices because the atmosphere is great, but the food here is just not all that good. The salmon was dry and overcooked, the lobster was also overcooked and the risotto stuff that came with the lobster had a taste that was just too wierd. The foie gras starter was nice, and the bread and sundried tomatoes went great with the drinks.

All that said, I would still reccommend at least one visit to this place as it is the coolest designed restaurant I've ever been too. It has a great vibe, everyone seems to be having fun, including the gorgeous staff. Maybe skip dinner and just have drinks, starters and dessert.

I don't mind the prices because the atmosphere is great, but the food here is just not all that good. The salmon was dry and overcooked, the lobster was also overcooked and the risotto stuff that came with the lobster had a taste that was just too wierd. The foie gras starter was nice, and the bread and sundried tomatoes went great with the drinks.

Pros: vibe, drinks, starters

Cons: entrees

When you walk in you will see it is a nice restaurant, trendy crowd, when you sit at your table and open the menu....that's when the shock sets in. I could not believe these prices, way over priced. I've had great food on Ocean Drive for a fraction of the cost. If your on a limited budget this is not the place for you. It's all hype, they even have the velvet rope to let you in..please guys it is just a restaurant after all.

I thought the ambience, decor, service and even the presentation of the food was excellent, but the prices were outrageous and the food was just average. It's trendy, but I would rather eat somewhere where there's great food.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here while on vacation. We live in L.A. We wish there was a restaurant like Tantra at home. Tantra was the most exciting and romantic time we have had since our honeymoon! Attentive service, beautiful and friendly staff, the food was absolutely over the top! Fresh lobster, Organic meats, succulent seafood, my wife's Sea Bass was like butter, I could cut my New Zealand Grass-grazed Filet Mignon with a fork! Anyone who is looking for a high-quality meal in a sexy and fun environment with outstanding service: Tantra is for you!

Pros: Trendy, 5-Star Dining, No Attitude

Cons: , Live Entertainment, Very Aphrodisiac

I paid over $1,600+ for dinner for 5 people. When we asked the waiter for additional food to go for a friend at home, he replied, "There is someone waiting for your table and I can not serve you anything else..." I almost fell out of the chair. You see, the tip is included in this place that I WILL NEVER GRACE WITH MY PRESENCE AGAIN.

Pros: Inexpensive, Over Rated, Rude

Cons: , Crowded, Bad Parking

Over crowded. Over Priced. Over rated. While the concept is good, they aren't able to pull it off. If you like having your table so close to the one next to you that the waiter can't get through, you'll enjoy this. If you are looking for a good dining experience, this place isn't for you.

Visiting Miami, I took a couple people I met there for a great night at Tantra. I live in L.A. and Im used to the loud, having to shout over the music to hear the person next to you kind of atmosphere. Thats exactly what I was looking for and what it was. Very good food. The service was great once it was obvious I was spending money. Good but overpriced wine list. And over $50 corkage fee is absurd. But overall, a great night out.

Tantra claims to be a restaurant with exotic Middle Eastern decor, sensual music and serving aphrodisiac cuisine; focusing on maximizing all of the five senses sound, sight, smell, touch and of course taste.

Although it does try, it doesnt quite live up to the hype. Although the music was good, the decor funky, I wouldnt classify the cuisine to be more aphrodisiac compared to most places. Instead what you will find is with the theme comes a very nice price tag. Seared tuna will run you about $40 and a steak at least $60.

Also, our dinner experience was maximized by the sight and sound of the squeaking bathroom door which opens every so often allowing diners in the intimate room a bright view right into the stalls. Nothing quite like it will enhance the aphrodisiac experience!

The beauty of this restuarant is the unique atmoshere, however there in one aspect that is typically South Beach, BAD SERVICE!!!!!!!! However there is something we can do about this, we have the power to tip or not to tip. Although tips are almost always included on the bill, you have the right and a duty to modify as you see fit. The restuarant is way too expensive to for the bad service. If you want to send a message, don't send a tip. To be honest I feel guilty, if and when I have to do this, but then again, I work too damn hard for my money to give it away.

Yeah grass on the floor as you walk in, when you can walk in. Door attitude can be a serious problem. Staff are model wannabes or washed up actors. Really bad. Music is WAY too loud for a conversation across the table. While food is good (not great but good) it is expensive. If you're going to do this place come Monday nights just for drinks and take in the atmosphere. Shame on CitySearch for giving Tantra such high marks on food though.

I flew in from out of town with the most beautiful woman in the world, who I knew I was unworthy of. I took her to Tantra and the atmosphere melted her. We sat in an unusual place...I can only describe it as a cross between a bed and a fireplace. It was dark, warm, romantic, and beautiful with suggestive art all around us.

Both of us thought it was the best we ever had.

The service was there whenever we wanted it, and was gone whenever we wanted to be alone.

The best aphrodisiacs were the music, the dark and the martinis.

We arrived at 8pm for dinner and it was NOTHING compared to how alive it became around 11pm.

It really is the most romantic evening I've ever known.

If you're in my situation and she's beyond you, bring her here and you may have a chance.

Servers are upset they didn't get the modeling/acting job: Diners get stuck with the attitude. Yipee, there is grass in the entrance. Overhyped, overpriced, and over it. Perfect place if you just moved here or are on vacation from Long Island/Buenos Aires/Kansas City and need to impress yourself with how much money you can throw away.

If you're in a group and made a reservation they'll seat you at a tiny table where you can't even move. Our waiter was a pompous moron. The lobster was tough. I don't understand all the positive local reviews. THEY MUST BE BRIBING THE LOCAL FOOD CRITICS. No one in their right mind could possibly like this place.

For a restaurant nominated for so many awards, Tantra did not meet our expectations. Our experience began with a 30+ min. wait for a table for 2 even with reservations. We were pleasantly surprised by the unique decor and ambience of the venue--grass floor and marble waterfall at the entrance and "kama sutra" playing at the bar. The music, however, was a bit too loud, making it difficult to hold a conversation without losing your voice. The wait staff was inattentive. Our waiter forgot to read us the specials; he forgot to bring us bread initially and we had to ask twice before getting it. The prawn appetizer was delicious, and the seared tuna and filet mignon were only mildly good. Although the food was decent, it was on the more expensive side. Overall, Tantra had a terrific ambiance and decent food, but it wasn't worth our money.

My dinning experience at Tantra was excellent. Nonetheless, the experience did not meet my expectations. I expected exceptional cuisine, commensurate with the prices, but I felt that I have had far better food at more reasonable prices. The ambiance was a definite experience, but in my opinion I was there for the full dinning/pampering experience, but there was more pampering than the level of cuisine than they claim. I do have two suggestions: try the afrodisiac shots, an outstanding drink, but don't drink too many, they will empty your pockets.

The food was absolutely amazing, as was the staff. The entire experience was exceptional; from the dinner to the desert, the dancing, the atmosphere, etc. Definetly a place I will make a ritual whenever I am in Miami. Well done!!

dinner: the biggest SCAM. shame on them! interior is cool, but that's it. even for well-travelled manhattanites this place is absurdly expensive, esp. for what you get. filet mignon was $50 & utterly forgettable. an appetizer platter (3 shrimps, 3 oysters, and a few other non-spectacular seafood items) was $40 but worth only half price at best. have drinks & enjoy the views, then go somewhere else for dinner.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
I love good dining experiences and wherever I travel throughout the world, I seek out trestaurants with the highest recommendations.
We were seated in a cramped table with people on each side bumping our chairs throughout our meal.
We ordered martinis - I finished mine before our meal arrived, however our waiter never once offered us another drink.
I ordered the seared ahi - I love ahi! The piece of meat I received was fatty, had grissle/tissue throughout - probably 40% edible. When our waiter eventually returned to our table after we were finished (he wasn't busy- he was talking at the bar to the other waiters the entire time) he asked us how it was and I politely described my dissatisfaction with the meal. He didn't acknowledge my complaint...he simply walked away!!
$180: 2 entrees, 2 martinis, water and a bowl of rice.
What a joke.

The worst part of the restaurant was the way they packed everyone in to maximize on table space to the point that whenever anyone sitting next to you had to get up, we had to hold our glasses and move our table to accomodate. Despite our generous and continual order of drinks, we were curtly then rudely told we had to finish and depart-our table was slated for someone else. When I spend $350+ (for two to dine), I do not think it is appropiate to be rushed to finish-at one point someone came and snatched our bread away following our meal despite the fact I was still eating AND requested it to be left. The food was mediocre at best and very overpriced. Save your money and go anywhere else-I got better service at Johnny Rocket's on South Beach!

The food is good but I have had better for LESS COST. Drinks are about $15 a pop. Ridiculous! $30 for a shrimp cocktail. $50 for a steak. Want a good steak - go to capital grill in miami or shulas. Tantra has a grass floor too which I thought sucked.
