Reader: Skip Tamayo and go back to Taco Bell for those 2 a.m. quesadillas, Westword

Tamayo, the modern Mex restaurant that Richard Sandoval opened on the edge of Larimer Square a dozen years ago, wasn't looking so modern last winter. That's when the internationally renowned restaurateur put a million bucks into an update of the space. In her current review, Gretchen Kurtz suggests that Tamayo's service doesn't match its surroundings. In response, readers served up their own assessments of Tamayo -- and Westword.

Says courtneyaustell:

This review is so off it is not even worth the full read. I have never had a bad experience at Tamayo or any of its sister restaurants. I love the authentic, traditional, yet modern twist this restaurant offers on its plates and cocktails. Westword has been wrong before and I could only wish they admit it this time. Go back to Taco Bell and get the 2am quesadillas you are trying to compare Tamayo's exquisite ones to. Seriously - I don't believe a word you wrote about this restaurant.

But Brawest does:

Was there a couple weeks ago for the first time. Horrible service. We ordered drinks and then didn't see anyone for twenty minutes. A shame since I work on the same block and the food was good, but I will not be returning.

Have you been to Tamayo lately? What did you think of the food? The service?
