Great service as well as food! It was a wonderful place to have a quiet business lunch.

Great salsa - smoky, tomatillo flavor! Tamayo was recommended to us by a long-time Denver resident. We'll also be recommending this restaurant. Carne asada tacos, shrimp enchiladas were both delicious. The margarita was pleasant. The wine pour seemed light, but it wasn't questioned. Prices are a bit high, but so is rent downtown I suppose. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Great place to get some drinks. The enchiladas and tacos were amazing on the brunch menu! The desert was a bit off from the authenticity of the other items on the menu, and the number of times the server told us no when we asked to purchase things outside of the brunch menu was disappointing.

WOW--we had a fantastic dinner and evening on Larimer St. at Tamayo's restaurant! Food and drinks were fabulous for everyone in our party and the lights and fall feeling were magical on Larimer Street. PLEASE go go go before it gets cold and we are all locked in for awhile.

Was waiting 30 min for snacks, then when snacks came, the main course were brought after 3 min. One of our plate was brought to other table, and we believe we got the same plate which was on the other table. Also server want us to give someone else snack, he said: do you want these beans? other people didn't want.
We put our card to pay and were waiting for server to take it for 15 min, while he was talking with his friends.
First and the last time we went there.

Birthday for my bestest grade school friend. One of my first dinners out since Co-Vid. Menu was limited. Guacamole and margs were delish. My friend loved her tacos. My shrimp enchiladas were good but sparse in shrimp. Understandable in these trying times. I originally requested a table outside, but it was kinda cool, so we ended up being seated at a small table way far back in the restaurant. Overall: really authentic- tasting Mexican food.

The supposed filet in the Tampiquena was the toughest meat I have ever had in a restaurant.
The service was minimally satisfactory with the waiter unavailable for significant stretches of time.
The music and ambient noise interfered with our ability to have a conversation.

Excellent location and 2nd floor covered patio to enjoy the views. Ordered @ 4:40 pm from the Happy Hour menu and kept ordering tapas food & drinks to 6:35 pm. All food & beverage charged at full price. Waitress unable to revise charges. No worries, but I'll be more careful to payout after Happy Hour next time. Beware.

Waiter was very inattentive. Had to ask several times for our next course in the brunch menu. Side dishes came out late, food was cold and even dessert was bad. Cooked plantains were rubbery and had the day old feeling, ice cream had frost bite and ice pieces and the tres leches cake was dry.

Overall it was not a good experience and will mostly likely never return due to the waiter inattentiveness. Glasses, black crocks and black hair.

We love this place for diner but the brunch menu is complicated. Value seems good but if you are a vegetarian your options are limited and Locke into course phases.

Their brunch menu is confusing and indicates bottomless food but we could only get what they brought on the most unpredictable schedule imaginable. Nor were we given an indication of what was coming because I never would have asked for a zucchini enchilada....Drinks were excellent though.

Food came in great and on time. You can tell the ingredients they used were fresh and that they took their time to get the flavor of their food right. Well mannered staff. Nice view from patio. Definitely recommend for dates and special occasions.
