Wonderful open air atmosphere. Valet parking and great food. If you like Mexican food it is a great place and is good for having large parties. Everyone that works there are hard working and kind. If you like great service, at least the times I have been there, which is usually three times a year, its been excellent!

Tamayo opened at five and we were there at 4:45. They greeted us warmly and allowed us to enter early. It turned out the entire restaurant was being rented out for a huge birthday party and we had reservations at one of the several tables in the section of the bar. Some would be put out by this but there is plenty of art in the bar and we could see the art in the main section from our seats. We were also allowed to walk around and view the art as the party had not begun. The food was amazing. The manager pretty much was at our table talking with us half the time and having the waiter bring us a taste of the mole. It was a wonderful experience to share with my sisters.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

We had good food and ok service. We were sat right by the front door. It was cold and loud. Disappointing because we had made our reservations in advance. The menu changed and one of our favorite dishes was removed. We all had tacos of some sort. The guacamole and margaritas were amazing. One of my favorite spots before a show or in summer for their roof.

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.
