    The waitress was very rude. She looked like she hated her job. The food has really went down in the quality. It’s not like how it use to be before. The drinks were super watered down didn’t taste like it had any alcohol at all.

    This was the first meal of our Colorado vacation. We made a reservation in advance and it was easy to alter the time when our flight was delayed. The food was tasty, thoughtful and unique. The ambiance was lacking.

    Outstanding! Great location at end of Larimer Square. Quest was delicious and trip of salsas were huge. (I especially enjoyed the peanut salsa.) fajitas were good, although peppers and onions could be cut larger.enchilada salsa was delicious! Great variety of tacos. And margaritas- just the traditional- was perfect (and a heavy pour on tequila.) Outstanding service too!

    We sat on the patio which was pretty but really close to the street so loud car noises but the main issue was that there was plastic in my enchilada. They comped the meal which we really appreciated and the service was wonderful. Just a bummer

    All our food was delicious! Service was spot on. The only downer was that we were placed in a large booth. With a party of seven, it was a tight squeeze. Not very comfortable.

    Tamayo RestaurantResponded on July 20, 2022We are so incredibly grateful for your fantastic 5 star review Our team values excellent service and it's a top priority at Tamayo, and we're delighted your group enjoyed our delicious food! It was not our intention for a tight squeeze! We're committed to providing a comfortable environment for our guests.

    Loved the food! The Chile relleno appetizer was so good! I think it should be made into an entree! Everything was yummy. The only thing I was disappointed with was that they don’t have the rooftop dining open. It would be nice to enjoy the summer evening outside on the roof taking in the sites of the city.
