We found Tamayo on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Upon arriving to the restaurant, they had valet parking, but there was no charge for it, as they only do it for tips. Upon entering the restaurant, you will be impressed by the décor and feel of the restaurant. We were seated immediately and greeted promptly by our server. We... More

Had a great meal here with my Co worker, the food was the some of the best mexican I've eaten in LA and the decor was beautiful. The staff really made this place though, very welcoming and had some great suggestions for the food and drink. I will make sure I visit on every trip I make to the area... More

I came here for the first time for an office lunch. The building was beautiful inside - amazing original wood and iron work and tons of unique artwork (they have a gallery upstairs also). The main dining hall has super high ceilings so it give a very nice open feel to the place. The food was outstanding. There are plenty... More

Tamayo is an oddly placed little restaurant in Commerce, CA. It is a restaurant and art gallery. The food is plentiful but expensive. I always order an appetizer because the full menu items are too much food. They have the best guacamole I have ever tasted. It's a great place for a business lunch, or a get together. Just be...

We were here with a group, and the service was excellent. We had appetizers and drinks. The Sangria was great! I had the steak and cheese enchilada, and it was a huge plate of deliciousness. Others in our group raved over the shrimp enchiladas. Neat building, cool art and great setting. Would I return & recommend-Definitely!

Four of us went for a week night dinner and were seated right away. EXCELLENT homemade tortilla chips -- thin and light and perfected salted. Prickly pear margaritas. Mango margaritas. Jalapeno margaritas. Good service. Large portions reasonably priced. Interesting art, the restaurant includes an art gallery upstairs.

Stopped in on a quick business lunch. Where told there would be a 25 minute wait (Holiday office lunches) but we were seated in about 10 minutes. Although it took a few more minutes for our server to greet us (Holiday office lunches) he was very apologetic and responsive once we connected. While I do not have a spicy food... More

My friend and I dined at Tamayo in Los Angeles today. Happy and attentive service, superb salsas (three excellent versions), and distinct fine Mexican food. I had a delicious shrimp enchilada with steamed vegetables,while my colleague had a spinach enchilada (vegan). Both perfectly cooked and beautifully presented.
