    The Carne Asada dish was one of the best dishes I’ve had in Dallas. Tender, tasty, and a good sized portion for the price. I will certainly be going back to Tulum, excited to try the rest of the menu!

    Went here for a girls' night out with friends. This is a lively jewel of a restaurant with a fun atmosphere and aesthetic. They take a creative approach with the dishes and drinks. We enjoyed the slightly different take on salsa and the coconut rice was delicious. The staff was very polite and engaged. Will definitely be back again. Note, we went on a Saturday night, the restaurant was full and it was a bit loud. I had to speak fairly loud for the person across the table to hear me, but it didn't bother us. A good time was had by all.

    Hot in the dining room. Very very weird and loud techno music blaring. How about some beautiful Mexican music? Anything is better that that weird noise. Really ruined the experience. Wait staff was great. Food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Everyone was friendly but we couldn’t hear each other talk.

    The restaurant itself has really good decor. It is loud but that is the intention as it is trying to replicate the types of restaurants you would find in Tulum MX. They do a good job of recreating that atmosphere, but it stops there. The restaurant was extremely uncomfortable since it was well over 100 degrees outside and we were told the AC system was broken. I certainly hope this was a one off because I certainly expect a certain level of hospitality from restaurants at this price point and having read the reviews I had very high expectations for Tulum. We started by ordering a drink which to be honest, they were pretty decent. The appetizer came next and we ordered the oysters. While they were flavorful they left a lot to be desired. The oyster itself was extremely small but they do a good job of hiding the fact with all of the toppings. I personally can do without all the extras because I enjoy the half shell experience and the brine was overly masked. Since you the appetizer left us wanting more we ordered some chips and hot sauce. The hot sauce had great flavor, although I am not a fan of thick heavy chips at a Mexican food restaurant. By the time our meal had arrived we were sweating so much we could not really enjoy the experience. We are huge fans of cochinita pibil and we look for any restaurant that serves this amazing dish. This was by far the worst cochinita pibil we have ever tasted. It more closely resembled a pork chop with barbecue sauce then the slow roasted marinated cochinita we have grown to love. I enjoy a good atmosphere and can appreciate what Tulum is trying to accomplish here but I cannot get past how bad the food is and will probably never go back.

    Never been so wasn’t sure what to expect. Went for my boyfriends birthday. Overall, nice experience. Was definitely warm inside. Every table was full so very happy we made reservations. Was seated in bar area. Felt a little claustrophobic and it was very loud but I think that was due to the tables next to us. The food was worth it though. Absolutely delicious and the margaritas were some of the best we had in Dallas! Will go again but earlier during the week.

    The restaurant itself was beautiful. But they are trying to be like club or something with the music being techno and so incredibly loud that I couldn’t even talk to my sister at a two-seater table. Even the couples on either side of us said the same thing. Food was good and our waitress was nice and refilled our waters regularly. But bar and kitchen were backed up so it took at least 30 minutes to get food. And ended up cancelling our 2nd drink because it had also been 30 minutes.

    It was so loud! The music was loud so everyone was yelling. Not pleasant. Food was so good! Service wasn’t great but I did notice that our server had two pretty big parties that were keeping him busy. But our appetizer came and the empty dish was picked up before we got our drinks. Not a good date night spot. More of a party spot.

    The chips and salsa were delicious!!! The rest of the food was good but definitely overpriced. The drinks were super sweet (we tried 3 different cocktails) also overpriced. The music was SUPER loud. Which could be fun for certain occasions but if they turned it down a little bit it would still keep the energy high in the restaurant but allow for better discussions for the guests. The service was great, very quick and attentive!

    We enjoyed our first visit to Tulum. Cocktails were delicious though a little small (we had the Paloma, frozen coconut margarita, and house margarita- the Paloma was my favorite). We started out with the queso fundito, which was gooey cheesy dip to slather on corn tortillas was shrimp folded in. Yum. My husband and I shared the lobster tacos and shrimp chile releno. Both were delicious. Full bellies, fun date night, all for about $100.

    Snagged an 8:30 reservation, we were a little concerned when we arrived and they said the kitchen was closed/closing (website said 9pm) - but we said we would order quickly. Aside from that snafu, the service and food were excellent. Rosemary Martini was not too sweet and perfectly balanced. The Tuna Causa was excellent, the chile powder giving a nice bite to a staple dish. We ordered both the lobster and filet taco's - our own surf-n-turf and both were excellent. Would definitely return. Fun setting and decor, though quiet on an early weeknight.

    I hate leaving poor reviews, but I was disappointed after a very rare date night for my husband and I. The music was so loud we could barely hear each other, and it felt like everyone in the very tightly packed and WARM dining room were yelling to be heard. Our waiter was exceptionally sweet, but the appetizers and entrees were underwhelming, and our entrees were both so heavily salted that we asked for our check after a couple of bites, and left. So much potential here with the general ambiance and decor but I would not recommend for a Friday night, unless it’s for a couple drinks at the bar with friends.
