    Before we took a bite of food, the decor and 90’s Hip Hop playlist won me over! The atmosphere definitely created an even better dining experience. Service was fantastic! Our waitress told us that the food at Tatu is inspired by the flavors of the Yucatán Peninsula. I wasn’t sure what that meant until I took my first bite. Everyone’s pallet is different, but I would describe it as Smokey with hints of cinnamon. The rice had a very strong cinnamon flavor. I loved it! It’s definitely different from the typical flavor profile you expect when eating tacos, beans, and rice. We’ll be back!

    Our server was outstanding. The guacamole and chips were terrific. The food presentation was very good. The restaurant decor and ambiance was a modern stylish hem within the revitalization of downtown Troy. The entrees were excellent. Previously in Saratoga, and now in Troy, I can only hope that Troy city government does what is necessary to draw people downtown. I drove from Southwest Vermont (Bennington). The next time we are at Troy Savings Bank for a concert we will return to dine again.

    Not realizing it was their grand opening, we made a reservation to celebrate my spouse’s going down to part time and our anniversary. We had enjoyed their restaurant in Saratoga and were glad they were now in Troy! They surprised us with complimentary Prosecco for our anniversary.

    We absolutely love everything about Tatu! The food is outstanding. We always love absolutely everything we’ve eaten. The ambience is so interesting and cool, yet comfortable and fun. The owner/chef is so very talented and knows how to make everyone feel special. The staff clearly loves working there and passes that feeling along to their patrons. We are devastated they are closing in Saratoga and hope they reopen very soon!

    Went with family. Great tequila selection. Margaritas ok. Friendly and responsive service. Food was bland. Very Americanized, non Mexican style of food. Good place for drinks and bar food but not necessarily for a nice dinner if you’re looking for an authentic Mexican meal.

    cocktails were fabulous, the guacamole and the freshly fried chips were excellent, some of the best I've ever had! the lamb tortilla was a great idea but was a bit dry-- needed something more, either sauce of veg or both; my friends dinner-- the vegetarian taco? was disappointing too her, and too spicy-- they might want to mark entrees with a spice indicator. dessert was delicious! very cool restaurant, will return for sure

    My only negative is we were there as they opened (for our reservation) and had an extremely small table for 2, The booths sat empty til we left. Drinks were great, highly recommend the jalapeño margarita. They carry highest end Don Julio 42. Food was a great chefs take upscale Mexican inspired food.

    It was too loud for my group. We were a group of 7 on a Tuesday night and we all had problems talking and hearing on another. We wanted to go at least once a month for dinner on Tuesday, but will likely rotate now and go to other places because the music was uncomfortably loud. We even asked to have it turned down and it was still too loud. 5 people I brought to dinner went there for the first time and loved the food, but could not handle the loud loud music. Food was great, place looks great, but we wanted to have dinner and talk to each other not listen to loud bass music with heavy beats. Thank you.

    Great great food and friendly staff. Where we were sitting it was a bit of a Friday night party vibe with the music, but it was fun! Just not perhaps the place to choose if you’re looking for something quieter. Lamb tacos were exceptional.

    We went here with a group of six before a concert at SPAC and the experience was great and fast. The home made chips and guacamole were another level. Their classic Margarita was delicious. The tacos were dip and great. Excellent service and a nice outdoor space.

    It was a beautiful evening so we decided to eat on the patio. The patio is small but tables were appropriately separated so we were not on top of one another. We had the vegetable panuchos, the fish tacos, the aguacate with grilled pineapple, the wings (which were too tangy for me), and the kid’s quesadilla. The food was fresh and delicious. Everyone was happy with their order. The service was fantastic. We loved it and look forward to returning.

    Initially service was good, but declined towards end of the meal. Took away the remainder of my appetizer without asking if I wanted to take it home. Picked up my main plate the second I took my last bite. Drinks were very good - main dish was decent but rather bland.

    Dined here during Travers week. Not sure why this place hasn't taken off. The food and tequila offerings are awesome. We had excellent margaritas and the appetizers were crafted with care and super tasty. Gourmet tacos and fresh guac were top notch. The place was busy but not crowded and we had an early reservation. There were families (little bit of children noises) but cleared out by 8. The food was excellent but for some reason on the busiest week of the year, the place was relatively empty. Great location and menu choices, but it is not cheap. Good though if you want awesome margaritas and quality, gourmet Mexican food. I would recommend for sure.
