Great location.
Decent food.
Ok drinks.
Good service.
This place is just WAY overpriced... There’s lots of Mexican food in town that is significantly better & way more affordable.

We have been coming to Tamayo regularly for almost a decade. This was the most disappointing experience I have had. First, the menu is a pared down version of its former, more interesting self. the seafood relleno, mole enchiladas, and many of the best appetizers and entres are gone. There were overall about half as many options. Everyone (including an 11 year old) was still hungry after finishing three small street tacos for close to $20. There are so many places for tacos for half the price that we can choose instead and this was never the food that made Tamayo innovative or interesting. The fish tacos also did not taste fresh, which was disappointing. I had never left unsatisfied before. Supposedly, the restaurant will revamp the menu again, but until they do, I will not come back for dinner.

I definitely recommend this restaurant, even though my food this go around wasn't as good. The rub on the carne asada is really bitter and didn't jive with the mole. But, their happy hour menu is really good, so I would recommend going at a time you can order off that.

Great service and very pretty restaurant. We came for brunch and the food just didn't match the price for a brunch. The portions are so small that you're pushed into doing the "all you can eat brunch" but the food quality just doesn't match that price. The guacamole was fantastic, but it is extra to the all you can eat portion. We spent almost $100 for two people at brunch and I have spent a lot less for a much better brunch. I have heard their dinner is very good, so maybe we will give that a shot in the future.

I was very disappointed in the fact that I marked "birthday" on my reservation. The host nor the server acknowledged this. The server never looked us in the eye while attending to us and rarely came by. I had to get up and run her down to tell her we had a birthday and could she put a candle in the dessert. The dessert came (at the hands of someone else) with no candle. The server came by. I gestured to the dessert. She picked it up and brought it back with a sparkler. The moment was ruined.

I also let the server know I was dairy free, yet my meal came with cheese and cream on it.

We all enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We had not been for brunch before. We found it to be quite pricey.

This was a return visit for us and we were not disappointed. Unfortunately, the terrace was closed for a private party because the views are great. Our meals were beautifully prepared. The Oaxacan salmon was particularly memorable. Definitely on the list for a return visit when we are back in Denver.

We generally dine here 2-3 times per year and have always enjoyed the experience. The entrees were excellent, the salmon in the mole sauce is inspired. The chips and guacamole were very average, the salsa was good. We were all disappointed in the margaritas they just seemed to be off.
Having said all that we will return in the future, as perhaps it was just an off night.

We went here for brunch on a cold Saturday in April. We really enjoyed the food and the experience. It’s not the best take on modern Mexican that I’ve ever had, but we really enjoyed the simple and delicious small plates, drinks and value. The decor was very nice!

‘Twas fantastic, it was an anniversary date and they provided us with a complementary anniversary desert (it spelt happy anniversary in sauce on it, I was surprised and thrilled and was a nice surprise for my girlfriend too) which was awesome. The waiter (Sami) was fantastic and the food delish, I recommend this restaurant to any and everyone who needs a good date night location!

They've changed the food presentations since our last visit, and we've been here several times. The carne asada and carnitas plates are a hot mess. Meats slathered in sauces with soggy tortillas on the bottom of the plate. Components hardly identifiable. The tacos are now layed out flat on the plate-used to come in nice taco holders that helped the tortillas stay together and not sit in a bath. Uncertain as to our future with this restaurant.
