Super! Good luck in these challenging times. Tamayo is beloved, and we would lose so much if you weren't just where you are. Great job!

I went there for my birthday and my waitress seemed to feel like my friend and I couldn’t afford our meal if we asked for add ins she kept reminding us it was an extra charge. I wouldn’t be at the restaurant if I could not afford the food.

Food, presentation, and service is good as always. But $16 for three smallish tacos for lunch with no sides is on the pricey side.

Service was amazing. We had to catch a flight and the waitstaff did everything they could to speed the process up. We got our food within 15 minutes of ordering.
Tacos are hands down the best I’ve ever tasted. Will be returning again and again.

Rude bartender (acting as host) and server. He felt it necessary to mansplain how social distancing works with tables. If he would have let me talk and listen I was simply asking if it looks like someone is about to get up from their table we can wait a while no problem. We ended up not eating here after being seated. News flash - they only serve brunch not lunch on Saturday’s until 4 pm because that makes sense. Overall just disappointed with the service. The managers were nice but it left a really bad taste in my mouth. I’ve eaten here before and it’s good, pricey for tortillas and meat though.

My fiancé and I came here for Valentine’s Day and it was perfect! We felt very safe and they are taking tons of COVID precautions. We got their margaritas, guacamole, chicken enchiladas and some items off of their Valentine’s Day menu. Our service was top notch, very friendly and attentive!

Excellent, we were taken care of very quickly and seriously enjoyed everything from the bacon guacamole and brocolini to the frozen margaritas. Atmosphere was festive and warm and we could both hear every word we said without having to raise our voices because it was too loud inside. I’ve been here multiple times and each time it has only gotten better. Wholeheartedly recommend this joint if you’re looking for something new.

Host was not overly friendly. We received an appetizer we didn't order and she left before we could tell her. Finally got her attention and we said we would keep a I thought she might take to other table. I put in notes it was for a birthday but nothing. I wanted to be a surprise And we had gift but they didn't do anything. Very disappointed in limited menu. This was not made clear on website. Very average food with high cost.

Our menu is slightly limited due to covid and it is posted on the website, so I apologize if that was not clear. However, I'm disappointed to hear the service was not up to par. I will be speaking with our management team and as always we will take your feedback and use it as a coaching opportunity to improve our operation. We hope to serve you again soon.

Service was slow. Our food was cold when it arrived. It had probably been sitting for a while. We asked for hot food. When it arrived they gave it to another table. We had to wait for our meal three times. While the waitress apologized, she did nothing to make our experience better. It is not a cheap restaurant. I am not sure I will return.

Nice employees & service. We ordered the $12 guacamole & it was smaller than my palm. The queso was just a chunk of melted cheese, about four big spoonfuls, was very difficult to serve & eat unless you just eat the cheese by itself. It was pricey for the portion size too. Limited menu but food was good. Again, entrees were more $ than they should’ve been. Rooftop patio was pretty loud.
