We were seated quickly and service was spot on all night. Our server was attentive and very helpful, as it was our first visit. The guacamole was delicious and the addition of pineapples made it more amazing. Get the street corn salad - it is AMAZING! I had beef tacos (quesabirria) - they may look small, but I could only eat 2. They are filling and delicious. My husband had the Torta De Salchicha which he loved. The cocktails were fun and tasty. Overall a great night and an enjoyable expereince.

Tatu was fantastic. I haven't been since last fall and was very excited to try my favorite appetizers and drinks. We had the Chips, Salsa, and Guacamole to start and the chips are always fried to perfection with just the right amount of salt. I had two additional bowls! I had the steak tacos for dinner along with a few margaritas and everything was flavorful and great. We loved our waitresses and I look forward to visiting their patio more as the weather continues to warm up!

Food wasn't bad, pretty typical and expected. Shrimp tacos only had two shrimp, very small portions. Service was okay.. table next to us was not 6 feet from us, maybe 4 at most and people kept walking past us with no masks. Overall an okay experience but wouldn't go back right away.

Amazing food, very cool decor, and fabulous 90s hip hop playlist. I feel like they created this place just for me. Can't wait to go back.

Great food, attentive service in a fun funky atmosphere. Saratoga Springs has numerous dining options, but this one is a must if you like interesting cocktails and a fresh spin on traditional Mexican food.

Love this place! A friend brought me here a few weeks ago and I came right back the following week. The menu nails the taco bar staples and adds some creative but authentic twists (guac with grilled pineapple topper was delicious, as were all 3 tacos I’ve tried, and one of the best salsas I’ve tried.) Also a really cool ambience with creative, edgy decor - all on their well-curated theme.

Cool place but food is subpar. Steak was inedible, tacos were unexceptional. Really disappointed as we had high hopes.

I’m reluctant to leave the glowing review the folks at Tatu deserve because, frankly, I want to keep this place to myself! Their Tuesday special can’t be beat - two overstuffed, delicious, unique tacos with rice and beans - my absolute fave is the pork and pineapple! Service is always great. If your server isn’t right there, there is always another staff member circulating to meet your needs.
Highly recommend! And always try something new because everything is delicious!

Food was marginal at best. While my steak was cooked perfectly, it was tasteless as were the sweet potato fires. Kale salad was over dressed and greasy. My husband had the fish tacos. Fish was over cooked and the portions small. The tortillas are also without taste. We’ve had better margaritas elsewhere. The salsa and guacamole were very good as were the chips. The only positive. Overall a disappointing evening

We were seated outside. Beautiful deck. Really nice setting and everything was literally spotless (a clear eye to sanitizing and being safe) -- so VERY MUCH appreciated in these COVID times. Food was phenomenal (tasty, authentic with a funky and different vibe) and service was absolutely seamless. Capital District desperately needed a place JUST LIKE THIS. Will absolutely be back and have already recommended it to others.

The food and the service were excellent. We had the Restaurant Week menu and it contained most of the regular menu instead of a few items like most restaurants offer including the items I would have ordered anyway. I highly recommend Tatu.

I'd recommend Tatu in Saratoga Springs for a different, new take on tacos. The food and service were both great and the menu had a varied selection of apps and entrées. We visited for Saratoga restaurant week and were able to try a good amount of things!

We had somewhat hoped for outdoor dining, but it was a cold night and the outdoor tables were not operational. However there was social distancing inside and the waiters took every precaution. margaritas, duck tacos, chili rellenos all good, market salad perhaps a bit off. The desserts--apple fritters and mango sorbet--were outstanding. A good experience and we would definitely go back.

We love the restaurant. A few of the regular appetizers were a bit different than before. We were told it was a new chef. Much preferred old chef for the appetizers. My husbands always wishes they would increase the beer selection. But that said, we will go back!

Did outside dining. The band down below was too loud for normal conversation. They could have been just a bit softer. (We parked 1 1/2 blocks away and they were still loudly heard.)

Aguacate + Chiltomate a perfect app combo. The salsa is spicy!

We all tried different tacos to share. Interesting combo of flavors that were delicious together. However, food did come out slightly cold.

Clinton was our server. He is attentive, knows the menu well and gives great drink recs. Thanks, Clinton!
