    Wonderful menu and staff. We’ve added it to our Top 10 walkable neighborhood restaurants. Great for big groups. It is loud but that’s part of the bi e.

    Food and drinks were outstanding and service was impeccable, However it was a tad too dark (hard to read menus) and noise level made conversations a little difficult.

    The service was subpar during dinner. We were there to celebrate two birthdays, we had gifts and I left it in the comment when I made the reservation. The server never acknowledged anything. When we went to pay, he made a snide remark about how much my friend tipped him. Not cool. Before we sat down, we sat at the bar and there was much better service.

    I hadn’t been back to Tulum since they opened but this trip was a complete 180 from that experience. I barely remembered my previous visit besides being impressed with the decor because it is beautiful inside. However this visit, every drink I had was absolutely delicious! The coco loco marg was so good! Also the dinner and apps were perfectly portioned and the food tasted exquisite. The Yucatán pork was literally an experience to eat and the way our server introduced the plate blew me away, wish she’d told us when we ordered because my friend had food envy! Haha. Long story short, I was very impressed and I’m excited to try their new menu :)

    This was our first time trying Tulum, so 4 of us went for lunch on a Saturday. As we parked the car we could hear the music being pumped into the parking lot and thought it odd that there would be such loud music outside. Once inside we found the music was loud there too. But we were escorted to our table, where we could not hear the specials from our host(ess). We were then greeted by our waiter, but we could not hear what he said. The space is nicely decorated and seems a little high-end, so our expectations were high; maybe a little too high. The menu was not huge but seemed to have something for everyone. The food came out and was good; nothing outstanding. All of the entrees came with little to no sides (my breakfast tacos came with a very small accompaniment of potatoes, which were good). I think we will go back and this time sit in the bar, maybe for happy hour, and give it another try. But if the music is so loud we can't talk .... I'm out.

    We had reservations and when we got there they said they front have a table for us at all. We were forced to sit at the bar which was fine but the waiters rushed us and they were having an event that night and would soon tell us they needed our bar chairs asap. The food was over priced for what it was average taste…. Will not be back bad experience not worth it

    TulumResponded on September 9, 2022HI AlexandraH, I'm so sorry for your experience in your last visit with us, as you noticed that night wasn't our regular Friday night, every comment it's very important and this one has been addressed with the staff to improve our services for our future diners. We would love to have you back if you are willing to give a second opportunity. Chef Jose Meza

    Absolutely fantastic. I have a feeling the price rent for the space is so astronomical that it has to be passed onto the price of the $25-$30 enchilada plate. Every delicious item we selected, arrived with stellar service and gorgeous presentation. Cocktails were innovative and 100% worth the money. Will definitely return. But this is more of a special occasion restaurant. Go and enjoy!

    nothing special about tulum. very sad that we wanted to try it for a birthday celebration. waste of money. overpriced food and nothing special i ordered the branzino, (save your money) costco frozen fish way better. also the cochinita -just sliced pork loin. sauces on side not cooked with pork. had to order a side of rice because it came with nothing else. tortillas served in a dirty cloth napkin (same ones they use for people ) super loud with “club” music the dessert they offered for my husband’s birthday never showed up, server kept saying it will out shortly after waiting 20 min we paid and left.

    TulumResponded on September 9, 2022Hi, Here at Tulum we strive to create unique experiences for all of our guest, I found this review very discouraging and I already shared it with all the staff to make sure this won't happen again. Every feedback help us to know our customers better and I will like to let you know that we have a new food and cocktail menu coming on September 19th. We know thinking out of the box could be risky sometimes but we hope you bear with us and give us another try. Chef Jose Meza

    We love the atmosphere. Service was perfect! Food wasn’t as good. My salmon was under cooked and the shrimp risotto was also under cooked. We didn’t send back but thought you should know. Music is fun but is a little loud. Other wise this place is so cute!!

    Sous vide carne asada was average and the meat was tough. Shrimp relleno was served with too much sauce. Best part of meal was the lemon sandwich dessert. Very difficult to have a conversation as it is very loud. I was very disappointed as we had never been there before. Will probably not go back.

    Tulum was a fabulous experience from the pre dinner drinks to the dessert course and everything in between. It was an experience in itself to watch the bartenders make their handcrafter cocktails! Our waiter was fantastic and the chef visited our table several times...even took the time to explain is passion for cooking and how he strives to bring his home cooking to Dallas! I highly recommend the branzino, charred octopus and the risotto along with the seasoned shrimp cheese appetizer. We will definitely be back!

    Dinner on a Saturday night. Drinks in the bar were good. Dinner was disappointing. Carne Asada was marginal, the branzino filet I had was poorly cut and overcooked. The noise level was extreme. We literally had to raise our voices to be heard across a small table for two. For a group out for a fun evening with the food itself not being an important factor, this may be the place.
