Better than beforeI had not been to Tamayo in a few years after a NYE incident with a rushed dinner and very rude bar service that left me boycotting this place. However, my husband convinced me to give it another try since they had updated the place and I was very impressed. The service was attentive and the food and drinks were delicious.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything but valueThe food is delicious, the service was great, but it is overpriced for what is essentially a Mexican food restaurant. Many better values in the city.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wow factorWe have always enjoyed Tamayo's and consider this restaurant one of our best to visit and eat. Their dinner menu is fantastic and tkes the Mexican food to a new level of enjoyment. Ask for Lila to be your waitress, very caring5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday brunch was amazing!$35 per person is a steal for unlimited cocktails and small plates of this quality. Everything we had was delicious. The chilaquiles were a standout in an excellent field of dishes and the waiter helpfully just kept things coming. We didn't even have to pick. I would recommend making a reservation because it got busy. We will definitely be back very soon for another brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food with an extensiveDelicious food with an extensive gluten free selection5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeded to entertain an outNeeded to entertain an out of town client on short notice and got last minute reservations on a Saturday night.

Food is outstanding!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMexican Magic!Chef knows Mexican flavors and tastes and uses this knowledge to riff on American favorites. Two must haves are the mahi mahi ceviche and the roast corn chowder. Accompany anything with the Serrano Hibiscus Margarita for a sweet-salty-hot treat. And ask for Leah's section for wait service that says it all in terms of Colorado cool and welcome.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA special take on MexicanA special take on Mexican cuisine--far beyond the ordinary5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Excellent ambiance.Perfect location right in Larimer Square. Wonderful food with good portions. Slightly expensive but flavors were good enough that you didn't notice. Would definitely eat again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTamayo is my go-toEvery time I entertain new clients, I always choose Tamayo for lunch or dinner. The service is consistently impeccable and the food is always dynamite.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTamayo is a restaurant thatTamayo is a restaurant that we often come to when seeing shows at the Temple Buell. The easy walking distance is part of that reason combined with the really good food. This is a take on Mexican cuisine and touts itself as "modern Mexican cuisine." In other words, don't expect Mexican style street food here.
My mom and I came for brunch. This was our first time doing brunch and it took a little explaining on the waitress' part before I understood that for $20 a person we could eat as much as we wanted (we opted for no drinks so we could stay awake for the show!). Once I got it, let the feasting begin!!
Between my mom and I, we ordered 10 dishes. Before you go thinking we must by massive pigs/cochinas, it must be noted that the4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and atmosphere.Fantastic food and atmosphere. Bar area was a bit small.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went to dinnerMy wife and I went to dinner around 7:00 on a Tuesday - very packed when we came in, but by the end of the meal there were many open tables. While fairly noisy initially, it became much less so by the end. At all times, conversation wasn't difficult.
The food was excellent, with unusual takes on Mexican fare. My wife and I shared a beet salad, chicken tamal, tortilla soup, and chicken adobado (with a huitlacoche dumpling and cilantro pesto), all with excellent flavor. Dessert was piloncillo toffee date cake - sweet, but delicious.
I would highly recommend Tamayo.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my wife her with theTook my wife her with the family for her birthday. Had been recommended by a Denver native that I knew. Wasn't sure at first, when we took a look at the menu, but we all were very delighted with our meals. Definitely high end Mexican food and priced accordingly. However, the most delicious Mexican food we ever had. The deserts were also outstanding. I The waiter took extra time to explain the meals as well. He did an excellent job. If I had one complaint, it was the happy hour drinks. The margaritas had way too much sweet and sour in them and the watermelon margarita was almost undrinkable. I would stick to the beer and wine.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always consistentlyFood is always consistently good as well as the service.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMReview here were spot on!Review here were spot on!

We will be back soon.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good, serviceFood was very good, service started off great but ended as decent.

I am a tequila fan and found that they had a wide variety of really good tequilas, so I ordered their signature margarita, aptly named the Tamayo, and it was SOOO good. I actually ended up getting a second with my meal. When we were finally seated, I wasn't especially thrilled with our server, he asked if we would like some guacamole in a manner that it was complimentary, and it was on our bill. But my entree, the chipotle camarones was outstanding (maybe slightly pricey-5 shrimps for $24?), we even got the bread pudding-which was also outstanding. I will say the meal was kind of expensive for mexican, but the quality was def. above average! I will be back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Pre-TheatreWe enjoyed the upscale Mexican food, especially since many of their dishes don't normally appear on Mexican restaurant menus here in Denver. The food is presented beautifully as well. We loved the dressing on the roasted beet salad, and that the salad was served on separate plates for two of us sharing. Tamayo is a great option for dining before going to the theatre/symphony/opera at DCPA.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, excellentExcellent food, excellent service - would highly recommend it! A little noisy if you're having a business dinner but a great find.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party was there on a cold,Our party was there on a cold, wet evening early in the week, so crowd was minimal. Thel tequila bar was a tequila drinkers dream-excellent selection and great drinks. The Squash blossom quesadella were an original concept and enjoyed by the party. The stealk L Tampmequena was very good, but I have had better. My party also ordered the Chipolte Camarones-again, very good, but a touch bit of excellent. The restaurant is charming and a great place to share the evening. Definitely a "go back to next time in town" place.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsOne of my favorite restaurants anywhere!

Server was Excellent!!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall Plate Brunch at TamayoTamayo now has a small plate, unlimited food and drink brunch on the weekends for $35/person. Similar arrangement to the brunch at Zengo. Delight experience. Works well with 4 people for sharing. $35 is somewhat more than I would pick as a price for brunch, but it does include drinks. Tamayo is always outstanding and generally our favorite restaurant, but we liked the brunch at Zengo somewhat more.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!Tamayo is the best! I think we will make brunch a regular event each month! Mark V. was an xcellent waiter and all of the staff was very nice. Food is excellent, for both brunch and dinner. Love the new decor too!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the bottomless brunch!I love the bottomless brunch! Such a great way to taste so many flavors - fun & interactive. Our server, Mark, was confident, friendly & knowledgeable. He really enhanced our experience and made great recommendations on what we should try. He also accommodated our one vegetarian and made sure he was included in each course. Food was delicious!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMtamayo inaugural brunchTamayo is pricey but has very good food and service. This past weekend was their first open to the public brunch so we had to try it out. You can tell they are still working out the kinks in some of their new recipes, but over all it was delicious. The brunch features bottomless small plates and brunch cocktails that includes several different mimosas, bloody marys and a margarita. The guacamole isn't included in the bottomless, which was a bummer, but it's one of their signature items so that is understandable and can still order for extra charge. It wasn't as crowded as usual due to the mini blizzard that hit town, as I expect that Tamayo's brunch will be very popular, esp once the weather warms and can sit on the roof top patio3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA very pleasant surpriseWhile we had been booked at a different restaurant, we changed our minds at the last moment and were happy we did. Everything our party ordered was great. Traditional guacamole(1 of 4 kinds available), the tortilla soup and chicken flautas were delicious. The carnitas had an excellent and gourmet presentation. Not your ordinary Mexican food. We will go to Tomayo again the next time we visit Denver.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Staff at Tamayo made usThe Staff at Tamayo made us feel very comfortable...everyone is friendly, and always making sure you happy. The Mahi Taco's were exquisite and my favorite, the shredded chicken enchilada's, were to perfection. Thank you for a wonderful evening before heading to the Colorado Symphony.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, and the foodGreat service, and the food was amazing. Didn't bat a lash and an odd drink request. I'm excited to come back and try their happy hour.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTamayo's is a great find,Tamayo's is a great find, superior food and superior service, first time there will be coming back. If you haven't been there your missing a great place3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHappened to come during restaurantHappened to come during restaurant week in Denver. The prix fixe menu was spectacular! Many restaurants will put fairly mundane items on their menus for these types of events, but Tamayo offered a wide selection of well prepared and inspired dishes. The service was easy, friendly, and our waitress had amazing recommendations. I would recommend Tamayo and plan on going back in the near future.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOld regulars in the new digsGreat food in the remodeled Tamayo. The acoustic is still pretty loud (really hard to hear ourselves talk). We loved the drinks as always. I don't remember the old menu that well, but in looking at the current menu, it looks more like it was more tweaked than really reworked, though that's perhaps not necessarily bad. We were really sorry to see the huitlacoche soup renamed 'corn soup' with some huitlacoche vinagrette on it instead of a huitlacoche dumpling. The soup is still delicious, but the dumpling was a rare treat that added an extra wonderful taste to a pretty tasty soup.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Tamayo; we had an exceptional time! The food and service was some of the best we have ever had. We can't wait to come back to Tamayo.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food was excellent, (beefOur food was excellent, (beef tenderloin skewers, wild mushroom flatbread & mahi mahi tacos) except the chorizo, which was so tough it was like eating a pencil eraser. Otherwise, the combination of flavors was a delight. Service was outstanding. Our waiter seemed never to be around until we just thought we might want something and then he would just appear. The house margarita had an unpleasant taste.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMvery good food. Went therevery good food. Went there for lunch and it wasn't crowded so I am not sure what the noise level will be at night. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Just the right amount of attention. Willing to accommodate dietary requests.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
