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.

Nice place, good food

This restaurant features a number of interesting tequila cocktails and unique Mexican-inspired entrees. The food was good, I recommend it.

Attended a private after party from a convention here in Denver. Food was great. Exceptionally flavorful and wide variety of Mexican food. The restaurant is well appointed and staff excellent. Will return

Every so often we come to Tamayo to have a delicious Mexican fusion meal. We were two couples that had a great dinner. It was a busy evening in Denver and we had a reservation, but we still had no problem. Service was great. We started with drinks; I had the traditional Margarita and it was very good. I had... More

I have been here twice. Both times, the food lived up to my expectations. The service could have been better though.

We visit here often and last night was typical - great service, great food. The only knock is that it got a little noisy.

Tamayo is not your typical greasy Mexican restaurant (which I generally love). It is a more upscale restaurant with a unique selection of Mexican-influenced dining. It is a great location for dinner before spending an evening downtown.

I eat the salad mixta about once a week (it is that good) and my husband and I enjoy a long dinner maybe once a month - we always get the seafood enchiladas and tacos and lots of apps. Also, when I had a question the manager Chris Anderdon took the time to answer it - amazing service. This is... More

Fun restaurant, lots of great rooms, and located on the best shopping street in town. Appetizers were ok, margaritas a little watery.

I am not sure why there are so many great reviews for this place. My wife and I went for Valentines evening and our expectations were high given the price point they set. At a fixed price of 65.00 per person for a 3 course meal I was expecting something more worthy. When the starters came out we were pleased... More
