One of the best restaurant experiences in a long time. We made a reservation, which appears to be recommended. We had the queso appetizer, huitlacoche enchiladas, and pork carnitas, and it was all very good. The margaritas were so fresh and also good. Wish we lived closer and could go back!

I visited Tamayo whilst on a business trip to Denver. The restaurant is in a good location and was very busy when we visited. I'd say for a business meal the music volume was a bit high so we struggled to hear all of our conversations. This wouldn't matter if you weren't trying to talk work though. There's a good... More

This Mexican food is clsoer to the finer dining you would get in Mexico City and North. Definately not Tex Mex, or Colorado Mex or even Southern California Mex. Really good though with a nice twist on traditional dishes

I've had dinner at Tamayo and it is good. I recently searched for good brunch places in the area and discovered that they have a wonderful endless small plate brunch. Small, shareable plates are my favorite way to eat and Tamayo did not disappoint. The concept is great. You order a few plates off the brunch menu and they bring... More

My friend & I went last night and had a very small but rich appetizer and many dish. Great service, excellent presentation and taste. The only issue was a little "rumble in the belly" after dinner Great evening except for the kickback!?

Not your normal Mexican food. It's original, but very good! Only complaint is it's a little pricy for the portions of food we got. Didn't even get appetizers and I had only water. Great atmosphere and location tho.

Five of us visited Tamayo on a Thursday night. It was packed out with people mainly between 20 & 40. If you're looking for a more traditional Mexican restaurant this may not be for you. It has an interesting & diverse menu. We all ate something different and were all happy, but not blown away. It's a little on the... More

Description
The menus at Tamayo offer a modern interpretation of authentic Mexican food with recipes created by critically acclaimed Chef/Owner Richard Sandoval at his Maya Restaurant in New York City. Our warm decor is spectacular with amber & coral colored walls featuring exquisite artwork that includes silver encrusted toucans, silver and volcanic rock guacamole bowls & Mayan masks to keep a watchful eye over the restaurant. Tamayo is truly a unique dining experience for intimate business luncheons, dinners, social events and large celebrations as well.
