A warm and inviting Japanese Tavern that uses natural, organic seasonal ingredients and highlights the diverse cooking styles used in Japan, Taneko is similar to Izakayas, Japan s own local taverns and pubs. Taneko offers an extensive variety of food, beer, wine, sake, and drinks served in a comfortable atmosphere; a place to visit for a quick snack or relax with friends for a full meal. Taneko uses a wood-fired oven and grill as the centerpiece of a menu that complements traditional tempura, sashimi, soups, stews, noodles, rice, salads, and desserts.
One Word . .. WONDERFUL
Make a reservation. We had a reservation and had a 5 minute wait while our table was prepared. Our table was next to the bar so our server did double duty as the waitress/bar tender. The service was great. First time here and the waitress took the time to explain the menu, portion sizes, and offered personal recommendations. Prices are not outrageous, food is good, and service is even better. Highlight of the evening was sitting across from a Scottsdale mogul named Tony and his companion who bought numerous bottles of wine and then shared them with the service personnel so that they would know the flavor of the different wines. It was amusing to watch numerous service personnel come by for their own personal wine tasting. In speaking to our server I found out that he is a regular and does this every time he comes into the restaurant.
