A perfect to celebrate any event, ie., Birthday. Great company, great food, great ambiance & excellent service!
Always a treat when dining there!! The atmosphere is amazing and the food is too!!!!
Tamayo is a lovely restaurant, and our server could not have been better. The chips and guac were delicious, but the rest of the food was so-so; I appreciated having the opportunity to choose a fish special, but the fish was overcooked.
Great food in an old feel LA restaurant. Tamayo was a very pleasant surprise, like stepping back in time when LA have fabulous restaurants and people dressed up. The atmosphere is casual yet I loved that the maitre’d wore a suit. Service was excellent and very friendly valet too. Food...superb!
Great food coupled with great service; couldn’t ask for more. Free valet parking was a great perk too.
Great food in a wonderful setting
The food is amazing. I had the large shrimp dish and the best in town
Great food, great service and a wonderful ambience surrounded by the great artwork of the Mexican artist Tamayo. Great for everyday dining to special occasions.
Ambiance is fabulous and service terrific. Food needs an upgrade. Guacamole was watery and had no taste. Portions are too big - quality instead of quantity.
One of my favorite spots in that area, always look forward to visiting there. Very classy, and friendly!
Beautiful space and excellent service. The wait staff was attentive, but not in an invasive way. Food, on the whole was good, but, as a vegetarian, I don't think I was able to experience the best of what Tamayo has to offer. With that said, there are vegetarian and vegan options. The dining room is beautiful and spacious and the paintings by Rufino Tamayo are not to be missed.
Just ok! Drinks and food! Expensive- for lunch and drinks.
The food was delicious and the service was great. It would’ve been better if our server had notified us that the kitchen would be closing so we could’ve had all options for dessert available to us.
Fabulous food, wonderful service and margaritas to die for.
Excellent Food and Service...we will definitely return!
Really wonderful “Historical Spanish LA” experience ! I love the food, building, and mostly the service. Sit in the bar at lunch if you prefer a little quiet. All in all an astoundingly brilliant display of the History , through an excellent gastronomic experience, fantastic architecture, and let’s not forget the art. The artist Tamiyo is whom the resturant is named after. The service is top notch too and they have gratis valet parking!
Roads getting there can be confusing , so I just get on E Olympic Blvd. and track to the address !
I am sure you will find the entire experience, delightful.
Tamayo is a true gem. Plentiful delicious food and a great menu. The service is very friendly. We had fajitas and a sampler appetizer. Everything was very flavorful. There was a great variety of salsa for the huge basket of tortilla chips. We had lots of food left to take home to enjoy a second time.
Tamayo had no record of my reservation despite the 2 emails I received from Open Table and a reminder text from Open Table that I confirmed the day before
Had an excellent meal with Great service. We enjoy coming here and look forward to our next visit.
A three person business lunch went well, distinct salsas just OK Guacamole, tasty food all delivered with charm and excellence by several waiters that attended to us.
The space is beautiful. The whole staff is welcoming, polite and very accommodating. Most importantly the food is pretty exceptional. A great place for a special occasion!
The food was excellent starting from the chip and salsa to the deserts. The live music was nice.
Tamayo's has been consistently the best restaurant since the day that it opened. The service is supreme, the food is succulent and the ambiance is very relaxing for all occasions.
Excellent service, the food was very good and the ambience was very pleasant. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
The food was delicious, but for some reason we were the only table seated in the entire restaurant that could easily seat 200 people. On a Friday night. Very strange.
Tamayos is also a great place for not only their food but their ambiance and service. Love this place!
Fun and tasty !
One week before my reserved holiday luncheon, they called me to state my reservation would not be honored for no good reason other than the owner not trusting the Open Table system. Fortunately another competing restaurant rescued me with a last minute reservation so I could hold my scheduled Christmas luncheon.
It was a horrible and stressful experience elicited by the restaurant's ignorance. I will most likely report their unethical business practice with the BBB.
I also lost confidence with making future reservations via Open Table.
Wonderful Mexican dinner, starting with thin tortilla chips and delicious salsa. I had jumbo shrimp and my wife had red snapper and both were seasoned very nicely. There margarita was perfect.
Came here with some friends I hadn't seen for a while. None of us had been there before and we loved it. We spend the first few minutes talking about the great find it was
Walking into Tamyo’s restaurant is like walking into an art gallery and upon arriving you are surrounded by the exquisite paintings of the great artist Tamayo. I attended the opening of this restaurant and Tamayo was present and thanked David and the community for honoring him. He was grateful and humble. The food is quite good and the salsas are fresh, spicy and addictive. I go here for the ambiance, margaritas and chips and salsa. Do not miss going for the holiday as they display a gorgeous nacimiento and the dinning room is beautifully decorated.
Maybe it was the day (Thursday) or the time of day 6pm but there were very few others people that evening. It had been a few years since the wife and I had been here but the building is still in excellent condition, parking by valet makes it so easy if your running a little late. We were celebrating our anniversary and were seated by the fountain, nice table. Wife had the Halibut and I had shrimp enchiladas after tasting a small portion of the wife's Halibut knew I had ordered wrong, it was delicious! My enchiladas weren't all that and that's the reason for the 3 stars. Otherwise the service was excellent, server very attentive.
Had never been there before and we were pleasently surprised. The civeche appetizer was outstanding. Their mole sauce on the encheleda was top-notched.
