    This was our first time to this restaurant. The waitress helped us with vegetarian items and the amount to order, so we didn’t have to waste or take out excess food. The service here was outstanding and the food was excellent. It is on the expensive side. It is a great place to go out with that special person or to celebrate. They make you feel welcome and special. I will go again the next time I visit Denver. The location is superb and nice to hang out before or after dinner.

    We enjoyed our meal very much. I had a mocktail which was yummy, and then a glass of malbec. The guacamole/salsa and chips are outstanding. I had the chicken tinga enchiladas with a side of broccolini (slightly overcooked but tasty), and my boyfriend had the shrimp enchiladas. Different sauces, both really good. Put some in a box to take home. Our friends enjoyed fajitas and the Mexican Cobb salad (huge), and they looked great. The service is outstanding. Hope I tipped the right amount; they deserved it! Will be back. Super easy walk to the DCPA for theater/concerts.

    Was seated and waited over 5 minutes before waiter came to table with menu’s. Very limited food options from past experiences this was not the place it used to be. Very pricey for the low quality and small portions of food. No alcohol was purchased and for 2, it was close to $100. Service was slow. Will not be going back.
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on February 13, 2024

    We made a 7:30 reservation as that was the first available but went early and they were able to seat us by 7 which was much appreciated. Service was super quick... almost too quick? Our server took our order and was leaving the table I stopped him and requested to add one more item, he said "sure" but didn't write it down and it was forgotten. We weren't charged for it and I didn't bother asking for it again but was a bit disappointed that it was forgotten. The food was average to us - the tortillas on the carne asada tacos were a bit too heavy, the meat could use a bit more char. The chicken tinga enchiladas were yummy.
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on February 14, 2024
    Hi Vanessa! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are glad to hear that we could accommodate you before your reservation time and that you enjoyed the chicken tinga enchiladas. We truly apologize for the oversight with your order. It’s important to us that our guests receive attentive service; we’ve addressed this with our staff to ensure every item requested is noted and delivered to your table promptly. Your opinion about the carne asada tacos is invaluable and has been passed on to our culinary team. We are always open to improvement, and it's input from our customers that helps us refine the flavors in our dishes. We hope you’ll consider dining with us again, as we’d love the opportunity to give you the top-notch service and excellent dining experience you expect and deserve.

    In the past this was one of our favorite restaurants. This was the first time we were there since before COVID. The food was mediocre at best - guac seemed to have some type of filler - sour cream - due to texture and lack of flavor. shrimp enchiladas flavorless. margarita mediocre. decor looked worn. service was mixed. our server was ok but maybe overworked. greater/receptionist refused to give us menus, saving the server would bring them. after at least five minutes with no menus we approached the greater again, who declined again. when we pointed out she had a pile of them beside her she finally gave us menus. we won't be going again.
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on February 14, 2024
    Thank you for your feedback, Diane. The quality of our food is of utmost importance, and it's disheartening to hear that the guacamole and shrimp enchiladas were not up to par. We strive to use the freshest ingredients and we will revisit our seasonings and preparation methods to ensure that every dish we serve is flavorful and satisfying. Regarding your experience with our service, it's clear that we missed the mark. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience you faced regarding the delay in receiving menus. Feedback like yours is crucial for us to refine our service and offerings. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again and regain your trust.

    Food was fantastic. First time I’ve had “gourmet” Mexican. I had the Scottish salmon. Beautifully presented. Our waitress was very forgetful. She asked our order three times. We also had to remind her to bring drink refills, chips, and other requests. Hopeful this waitress was just and anomaly. Service is why I gave 4 stars not 5. The food was worth a 5.

    The food was good but the temperature of the restaurant was too cold. I had to wear a jacket in doors. Very expensive for Mexican food.

    Warm chips and salsa is always a good start! We liked the shrimp enchiladas and the camarones al chipotle was super good - the corn masa flatbread was cooked well and not a ton of cheese and lots of shrimp, sauce was really good too! good service, pointed out a price difference between the menu and our bill for margarita and they fixed the bill.
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on January 21, 2024

    The menu is updated seasonally and the dishes are delicious. Have been to Tamayo multiple times and always have great experience. One of the best values in Denver without compromising quality. Also, wanted to mention our waiter, Derek, was the best and extremely helpful in guiding us through the new offerings.

    A top night! I asked for a corner due to it being a birthday dinner and they did. Our server was slightly underwhelming. We asked for suggestions and didn’t receive any. Any time we asked for something it seemed to be a hassle. But the food was great and ambiance/noise level were perfect. Will definitely be back. Also the chicken tortilla soup is phenomenal!

    Went for the tail end of happy hour and for dinner. Tacos were fine. Margs were good. Although the calamari breading was a bit bland, the dish was very flavorful supported by the charred lemon and fresno peppers. Overall, decent food for a decent price. Was neither wowed nor disappointed. May or may not be back.
