The food was impeccable and the server was very knowledge about the menu. She was friendly and patient. It was my second time here bringing a friend for his birthday. I will definitely come again. I highly recommend the queso fundido, the be elote, and the pozole ceviche as appetizers. I’ve tried the Xcaret and Cozumel enchiladas and they’re great. The chef also takes his time to greet his customers, as well as actively working with the restaurant staff.

This meal at Tulum was one of the worst meals I've had in years. It's a shame, coming from a restaurant that had been one of our favorites. First off, the original chef is gone, and so is the old menu, and it shows. The food this time was mostly miserable, with the worst dish being the Yucutan pork. It consisted of one small piece of very overcooked pork loin, and one huge piece of very undercooked pork fat. That might've been the single worst item of food I've ever had on a plate.

Everything else was mediocre to bad, but I have to point out one of the worst things I've ever seen a server do. One of our cocktails came out, and my wife tasted it, and thought it was terrible. Before we could say anything, the server came over and said she'd delivered us the wrong drink, and took it away. She then delivered that drink to another customer at another table, who started drinking it before we could jump up to tell him we'd already been drinking out of it. A server should NEVER take a drink from one table to another. There's no way we'll ever go back to Tulum.

Second Time back since they opened back in October. They've grown to be a great neighborhood spot with a keen detail for high quality food and drink.

They are experiencing the fluctuation pains of COVID nights and were slammed with only 1 bar tender for at least 50+ seated customers. But the servers were on top of making sure food comes out promptly and that dinner was supberb.

Beautiful spot in my neighborhood that I have been to a few times. On this particular night I was hosting a few work friends in town and I think they really enjoyed this place. I loved that any of the staff was happy to take photos of our group when asked. The inside is so well done for a perfect photo or two. Once we were at the table the service was ok, but the food was really good and priced to fit. Drinks were delish!

There needs to be a new word for loudest restaurant other than "energetic". How about deafening. Octopus was excellent but enchiladas (we had two different kinds) are swimming in sauce to the point where the flavors are indistinct. Tasted fine, but not memorable.

Customer service was just as bad as the food. Waited 30 minutes for our drinks to be brought to our table. And another 20 to put our order in. The waitress was too busy flirting with guys at the bar. We were sat next to a couple and the guy was so disgusting, he kept pushing his hands up the girls dress. It was so inappropriate. Took us almost 3 hours to order and get our food. For a high class restaurant I’d expect better service and food. This place was overrated.

The aesthetics are beautiful, you really feel like you're on vacation.

The service was excellent. Our server, Shaun made great recommendations. The chef came out and walked us through the menu when he found out one of our members needed GF options.

The food is delicious. It's NOT Tex Mex so keep that in mind. The menu is authentic Mexican and a nod to it's namesake city.

What we ordered:

✴️Avocado (guacamole- but it's not your traditional guac). Fresh and delicious.
✴️ Chicken Chilaquiles Verde - so yummy!
✴️passion fruit, raspberry, and mango 🥭 mimosas- made with fresh pressed juices.

Although our server was well-versed on the menu, she spent much time chatting with other staff members (including the chef) rather than being attentive to clients. So I would describe the service as "inconsistent." We were there for our anniversary (and described our visit as such in our reservation under "Special Occasion") but no mention was made of it by the staff. The food was very good so it will be interesting to see if that trumps the spotty service at a restaurant located so close to Highland Park, where expectations run high for service.

It's a cute and hip restaurant. I would say it's a little loud if you're going for an intimate environment but it would be nice for a gathering with a few friends. The food was very disappointing. The salsa was bitter, the avocado crab toast was rich and overwhelming, and the steak was rubbery, bland, and overcooked despite ordering medium rare. Absolutely not worth the money. Pretty disappointed with the experience unfortunately. I really wanted to like it.

The cocktails were great though.

Slow but friendly service, food could be much better not impressed with it, specially with the kind of chef they have in house, drinks are not well balanced at all, oh for sure they love coconuts it’s on everything. It looks like they don’t want their clientele to spend money. I could barely finish my second drink.

I was super excited to try this place because of the mezcal choices and our previous experience at the bar. There was 1 bartender and we were told he wasn’t very knowledgeable on mezcal and that was so sad for us considering their selection. Also, that we were better off choosing from the cocktails in the menu and not requesting mezcal as a base. Needless to say, my mezcal margarita was not very good. Our server was great but the food wasn’t that flavorful. The plating was very messy and not appealing. I’m a big foodie and formerly worked in the restaurant industry. Also, the catch of the day was breaded in brócoli and didn’t need it. I would come back but just to sit at the bar for cocktails.
