    After being reccomended to us by multiple people, we decided to get our final dinner during our Denver stay at Tamayo. On initially walking in, it was not as cute as expected. The margs were not as well made as expected. The service was much slower, forgetful, and inconsiustent than expected. The food was actually very good. The flank steak, and al pastor tacos were insanely tasty (though the corn tortillas were more crumbly than expected). This resteraunt is fairly solid, and brings some good things to the table like the food and mezcal drinks, however I do not think you should enter with lofty expectations.
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on March 27, 2024

    Nessy was the highlight of our experience. The house old fashioned was another highlight. I will say, the food left a lot to be desired. I was so excited to try this place, but my mahi was very over cooked and portions were tiny for the price. Overall, service, fantastic, but the food was not memorable.
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on March 27, 2024
    We're elated to hear that your experience with Nessy was the zenith of your visit — her dedication to service is something we’re incredibly proud of! And it's wonderful to know our house old fashioned hit the spot. Your mahi mahi should have been nothing short of amazing, and portion sizes satisfying. Your feedback is invaluable and we're taking steps to evaluate where we can make enhancements. Our aim is not merely to meet expectations, but to leave a lasting impression with every dish we serve. We hope that this does not deter you from visiting us again and look forward to providing a more authentic experience upon your next visit.

    I visited a few years ago and I liked Tamayo a lot. Unfortunately it is not what it used to be. To begin, I wanted to try a mezcal that I saw on the bar wall but not on the menu. When approaching the bar, the bartender told me quite harshly to go back to my table (!). I said that I just wanted to see the mezcal options, and she told me to go back and ask the waiter. I went back, asked the waiter for the mezcal I wanted (Ojo de Tigre) and he had no idea what I was talking about. I had to go back to the bar again and point to the bottle so that they understood what I wanted. I know not everyone can know all the products being offered, but I'm used to chatting with bartenders and having a nice bar/cocktail experience. The attitude of the bartender, and the lack of knowledge of both bartender and waiter made the experience suboptimal. Then moving to the food, the menu does not include mole and traditional Mexican dishes anymore, but only fajitas and the usual Tex-Mex found in most other Mexican restaurants. Overall, it is nice, but nothing extraordinary anymore.
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on March 13, 2024
    We truly appreciate your honesty and are disheartened to hear that your recent visit to Tamayo did not live up to the memorable experience you had in the past. We extend our sincerest apologies for the way in which you were addressed by our bartender and the confusion that ensued over your mezcal order. Excellent customer service is a keystone of our business, and it is clear we fell short in your case. Please know that we have addressed this incident directly with our team to ensure we improve our approach and product knowledge going forward. Your patronage means the world to us, and we would be honored to have an opportunity to welcome you back for a renewed experience that hopefully surpasses your expectations.

    Our overall experience was really good when we went for Sunday brunch. The food was excellent, and the price was right. I’m guessing our server was new because he couldn’t answer some simple questions like, “How many tacos come with the taco entree?” There really isn’t any kind of ambiance to judge, so it’s neither bad or good—it just is. The noise level was extreme, though, and it’s so hard to have a conversation with the person next to you or across from you. Loud background music makes people talk loud, but there were some tables where I wanted to put on my elementary teacher voice and ask them to use their inside voices. Some people are just plain rude and insensitive. But again, the food was fabulous!
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on March 14, 2024
    Hi Vicki! We're so excited to hear that you enjoyed our Sunday brunch and found the food to be excellent! Please rest assured that we're working on ensuring all our team members are well equipped with the knowledge to answer any questions you might have. Regarding the noise levels, we understand how important a calm dining environment is for an enjoyable meal, and we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon – perhaps on a quieter day where you can fully savor both the good company and delectable meals without distraction.

    Stumbled on to Sunday Brunch (didn’t know there was a brunch with a different menu). The “bottomless” menu for $34 made the most sense. There was no skimping on food and it was all great. Our waiter was charming and all the service was excellent.

    Nice place to dine before going to something at the DCPA. Food was good, but they had run out of the street corn, which kind of surprised me as it was barely 5 pm on a Saturday afternoon. Service was excellent so overall a pretty good place
    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on February 26, 2024
    We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed our food and service—especially before your event at the DCPA.

    The dishes were visually elegant and appetizing in appearance and taste for the most part. The brisket taco, however, was cold and there were very limited culinary options without onions which I am sensitive to. The salmon and chicken dishes were unavailable at 5 PM and even if available, would have been already subject to being marinated with sauce containing onions so I was only able to order the kale salad which was delightful with a delicious lemon-based dressing. The service was good and the waitress was prompt in taking our order and serving us. Good location, close to the DCPA!

    This was our first time to this restaurant. The waitress helped us with vegetarian items and the amount to order, so we didn’t have to waste or take out excess food. The service here was outstanding and the food was excellent. It is on the expensive side. It is a great place to go out with that special person or to celebrate. They make you feel welcome and special. I will go again the next time I visit Denver. The location is superb and nice to hang out before or after dinner.

    We enjoyed our meal very much. I had a mocktail which was yummy, and then a glass of malbec. The guacamole/salsa and chips are outstanding. I had the chicken tinga enchiladas with a side of broccolini (slightly overcooked but tasty), and my boyfriend had the shrimp enchiladas. Different sauces, both really good. Put some in a box to take home. Our friends enjoyed fajitas and the Mexican Cobb salad (huge), and they looked great. The service is outstanding. Hope I tipped the right amount; they deserved it! Will be back. Super easy walk to the DCPA for theater/concerts.
