I took my girlfriend here recently, and we had a great time. The food was terrific, and the queso was unbelievable. The server did a great job taking care of us, and I would definitely go back again next time I'm in Larimer Square.

Recently, I was part of a large party

Recently, I was part of a large party that dined at Tamayo. I think that whatever the bill was for a party of over 25, was not worth whatever we paid. Service was exceptional and very attentive but the food was not that good. In fact, I cannot remember what I ordered except that it had green sauce. For a place such as this to be located on Larimer, one can expect much more from down the block.

We arrived on time for our 8:15 reservation. Our table was not ready, so we headed to the bar area, where we easily found 4 seats at the bar. There were at least two bartenders, and I ordered our round. However, the first bartender basically forgot that he took the order. Ten minutes later, I ordered from a second bartender. Again, he was either distracted or perhaps not trained well enough, becasue he came back nearly 10 minutes later to take the order yet again. Considering we were ordering 2 beers and 2 vodka sodas, this should not have been an overly complicated process. We finally got our drinks around 8:45. We were finally seated for our 8:15 reservation around 9pm. The menu did look fabulous, so I was excited for our entrees to arrive. I ordered the pork tenderloin. When it arrived, the pork tenderloin was in slices, with the centers clearly RAW! I cook pork tenderloin often, and I don't mind the center to be pink in order to preserve the tenderness and juices of the meat. However, these pieces were literally as rare as a beef tenderloin ordered medium rare to rare. Luckily, there were two end pieces that were cooked well enough, because by the time we received our entrees, it was 9:45, and sending this back to the kitchen seemed pointless since I didn't want to sit there for another hour. In addition, to the pork not being cooked to an appropriate temperature, it was also very tough and not tender. My dinner mates also had very so-so reviews of their own entrees.
This was a disappointment. Service from the bar to the table was absolutely horrible, and the food was awful. I would rather make something at home. I would not recommend this to anyone, and while I realize that we were there on an ""off"" night, the experience was so unpleasant that I would not be willing to give it a second chance.

Expensive and poor service

I'm not sure why we put ourselves through the experience with all the other options on Larimer. Would have done better at Teds for a fraction of the price. The staff is poorly trained and rude. As we entered there was a small mob of staff at the front of the restaurant, ignoring us...the CUSTOMERS. I don't know why I have this wild expection that we should be noticed when we walk in the door. I felt invisable...and there were so few other customers in the restaurant, I just don't understand why a restaurant would not train staff to fall all over customers in this type of economy. I always expect good service, but especially these days! You can tell when a restaurant puts service first. The wait person is attentive and is focused on you not gossiping with his fellow worker. If I wanted that treatment I would go to Safeway and let the checker ignor me. I wanted another glass of wine, but by the time we could get someones attention, I was too frusterated to bother and wanted to go. We went 20 yards away to Teds and finished the evening.

Food? Give me a break. The king has no cloths. There is nothing special other than the fact that you are paying too much Mexicanish food. I dine out 3x per week and will not return.

My prediction....they close in the next 6-8 months.

Excellent Mexican Food for a not to shabby price

Eating here was a real treat. My wife chose to bring me here and we had a delightful experience. People say cheap mexican food is horrible mexican food, but this place will turn that thinking around. Will be back soon!
