I hate to say, as it's been one of our go tos for years, but the quality of the food has been going down and, along with the surprisingly difficult ordering for the brunch, this trip is probably going to be our last. Staff was helpful and courteous, but the cost of a mediocre meal was way to high.

One of the best Mexican restaurants I’ve ever been to. Their food is so fresh and delicious. Their food is also very beautifully dressed.
Only thing is it is a little pricy, and you have to order sides (they don’t come with sides)

We did the bottomless brunch, and being in the food industry you can tell they make the food in big batches and leave in trays to sit and mass serve. It was all cold and just not good. The drinks however were fantastic; we did one of each of margarita/mimosa/blood Mary. The ambiance looked great inside; we sat outside which was an excellent choice to be able to get the vibe of Larimer Square. Our main server was training a woman. The trainee never remembered anything we asked her to get, but she definitely paid sole attention to one table with two gentlemen (she must have known them). So we would have to go inside and find the trainer or another server after anything we asked for, because we wouldn’t receive it. Unfortunately as well, I believe a food critic or editor was next to us, the last half of our meal. It’s unfortunate because the attention they gave to her and her friend, was the type of service that you’d expect from a place like this for the price; top notch. They got fresh food (even though they got bottomless), the best service (chef came out and explained every detail & head manager serviced them with outstanding service. It gave us and the tables around us a bad taste in our mouth, & two other tables left right away because of it.

Usually love Tamayo, but didn't realize they were serving a Covid menu, which was 5% of their regular menu.
There were VERY FEW choices, and as a pescatarian, all I could get were side dishes.
Wait till they revert to their regular menu. Was pretty eh.

Waitress was sufficient. No extra attention given and certainly no small talk. Seemed annoyed that we were there asking for things like an extra fork. Food was sufficient but not worth the cost. After two attempts at Tamayo in six months it’s officially off our list of places to go.

My partner and I had a great time at Tamayo. We started off with a couple of excellent cocktails, then had some chips and guacamole. The guac was excellent and was a great prep for our entrees. We split the Mahi Mahi tacos and La Tampiqueña from the dinner menu. The tacos were great, tons of flavor with an excellent chipotle rouille on there; the steak was similarly delicious cooked perfectly with great sides. Our server, CJ, was phenomenal and took excellent care of us, he gave great recommendations as well as being personable and funny. We also found out they have bottomless brunch so we will definitely be returning for that! All and all a great dining experience on a great rooftop with an amazing view.

We enjoy taking advantage of their sunny front patio but right now they do not have a hostess and you are always stuck waiting around for someone to come help you. They have good margaritas but the food is overrated. Mostly just enjoy having a drink on a nice patio.

Cute location and I understand restaurants are slowly opening due to covid, but was not the greatest experience. Three of the items we wanted to order we were told they were sold out of due to a busy weekend. The skirt steak was delicious, but the fish tacos were too fishy. Don’t think I would return.

The bottomless brunch was tasty, but confusing to order it and we felt like the server was losing a little patience with us. Also, if you're paying $28 for bottomless food or $42 for bottomless food and drinks, I think non alcoholic beverages should be included (they aren't, and it felt really stingy to pay for coffee on top of the bottomless meal). The ambiance and cleanliness of the restaurant was great.

Tamayo bottomless brunch is great value, amazing food and drinks, and perfect location. The only reason for the 4/5 stars is because patio seating cannot be reserved. I understand the thought to this, but downtown Denver is extremely pet friendly so if you want to dine with your pup, a reservation does not guarantee they can accommodate you because you need the patio. It would be nice if they held even one table specifically to accommodate people brunch if with pups.

Second time I partook in the brunch at Tamayo and I will continue to return as well as suggest others to attend. Food and drinks are delicious and the best part is that they keep them coming! I particularly wasn’t fond of the red enchilada sauce, it had a paste texture and was not too flavorful. Chilaquiles and tacos are my favorite items from the food menu and the Bloody Maria is super tasty.
