From the moment you enter Tulum you feel welcome. They bring a small mushroom taco immediately, and it is amazing. The food we ordered was all amazing as well. The servers are all very nice and knowledgeable. Looking forward to going back!

Tulum is very cute inside. The bar is beautiful. We just ordered a bunch of sharables and I loved some more than others, but I'd like to go back and try an entree. There weren't a lot of options for wine by the glass, but the cocktails looked amazing.

Made a late reservation on a Saturday evening....no problem A friend and I wanted some light appetizers and a few drinks.. upon arrival we decided to sit at the bar so as to see all the action. We started with signature cocktails ( which were great) Then a few shareable appetizers. Over all a nice evening Bartenders were attentive and knowledgeable.

I was recommended the halibut by my server, and it was okay but nothing stellar. For the price point, I expected something much better and stimulating. This restaurant is forgettable on my list. The drinks were what stood out besides the lackluster food. I suppose most people go here for the ambiance and service, but other than that the food was just ok. Nothing special.

Went on a Thursday and arrived at 6:45. Both the host and our waiter made us aware that there was a happy hour until 7 and we should take advantage of it. Nice touch and the drinks were great. We ordered the short rib tamale as an appetizer and it was awesome. My wife and I split the filet entire and it was well prepared and enough food for the two of us. We both really liked our waiter but didn’t catch his name. He was super positive and very accommodating. Great place.

Upscale Mexican. Highly recommend the octopus. The flutes were essentially a cut up flauta - excessive at $12. There were four us. The lamp chop was delicious. The filet mignon and flounder what you would expect. However, the short ribs, which came highly recommended by the waitstaff, were burnt char at the ends, bland, and dry. Very disappointing.

We wanted to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary at a nice restaurant. We’d seen TULÚM on GMT and decided to give it a try. OMGosh! We made an excellent choice. You arrive, and from the outside you can tell it is upscale. The atmosphere was warm & inviting. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Andrew, our Server was on cue, he had great energy and gave us outstanding service. The Ginger Martini was a nice drink. The octopus “shareables” was as good as we had in Portugal. The main course, was amazing and the rum cake dessert to seal the deal. Then Nicole, the Manager, showed up at our table just to check if we were happy with the experience. She’s a diamond! Her people skills... Over the top! She engages you as if you were the only person there. After we left, my husband and I kept reminiscing about our experience. We travel extensively and eat at nice restaurants. We know quality food and don’t mind paying for the value. TULÚM is now at the top of our list... UNMATCHED!

My experience at Tulum this last Tuesday night was strange, to say the least. It was date night for us but our experience wasn't very conducive to this. We sat down and ordered drinks but they took about 25 minutes to arrive. Our waiter kept joking that the bartender was drunk that that is what was taking so long. Very unprofessional. He did this about 3 times before we stopped another employee to ask for our drinks. He engaged the manager and still, our drinks were 5 minutes out. We got our drinks with our appetizer (which was great by the way). The waiter forgot what each of us ordered and the wrong silverware was placed at our table and had to be changed when the food arrived. The person delivering the food was just as confused/uninformed. Finally, once the meal was done our waiter was extremely pressuring in ordering dessert or shots (mind you, we each had ONE drink during dinner). On top of this, he dropped half of our silverware when clearing our table. Overall, a very strange experience... Great food but subpar service...

We LOVED Tulum a couple years back and went back when we visited Dallas. Sadly, this experience was disappointing. Last time, they competently accommodated our veggie requests and helped us have a delicious and fun experience.

This time, our initial waiter told us we only had two options as vegetarians: a veggie plate and the mushroom tacos as an entree. So when we ordered, two of our group ordered the mushroom tacos as an entree. After a pretty long wait, they brought us two TINY mushroom taco appetizers as our entrees. When we told the server, he did not seem to understand the difference. It then took a VERY long time to attract the attention of anyone who we could tell what happened to. Eventually, we found a woman (manager?) who was very competent who gave us the ACTUAL mushroom entree (which I think is confusing to both the waiters and the guests as it is simply the mushroom taco filling constructed into an entree). That was delicious and one was adequate for the two of us as we had by then eaten the two taco apps given we were starving and the whole thing took so long. But by then our whole dinner was disrupted and we were distracted by trying attract a waiter’s attention instead of speaking with our other gusts and enjoying our dinner.

One big issue was that we only saw our initial waiter (who told us we only had two options) ONCE as he seemed to delegate the rest of the process to someone else. So he actually didn’t take our order or come to check on us. The second big issue is that the description was garbled. They should really train people to check on guests once food is delivered + why don’t they just put the mushroom entree on the menu??

Sending detailed comments as I hope they fix some very fixable issues. The manager clearly wants to do a good job as she quickly got us a new entree and actually deducted that cost on the check without us ever asking. But the whole experience was just not up to snuff. Hope this helps as the food is still good!

Went for restaurant week and had delicious food with fast service. Unfortunately we were next to a table of loud blonde soccer moms who basically yelled the entire time.

Would go back to the restaurant for sure, just hope the other guests are as obnoxious

We tried Tulum during restaurant week and absolutely loved it. We’ve tried other places during the same event and you are sometimes made to feel like an imposter...not at Tulum. Service was wonderful, food was fresh and served quickly, cocktails were strong (!) and the restaurant beautifully decorated. Everything we had was yummy but especially the jerk chicken and piconcillo cake.

My friend and I both enjoyed the $39 prix fixe menu at Tulum for restaurant week. The octopus starter was perfectly tender and the salmon entree with coconut sticky rice, figs and mango was very tasty. The corn pudding dessert was good but not overly exciting. We ordered the yellowtail crudo starter from the regular menu to share in addition to the prix fix dishes. Service was excellent. Overall, our dining experience was enjoyable. The prix fixe menu portions are smaller than the same dish on the regular menu. I was satisfied but not full which is unusual for me because I almost always take home leftovers. In the end it was about $65 per person (including one glass of wine for my friend.) With a sophisticated, not pretentious, ambiance and creative original menu it's a restaurant I will return to with my husband to try dishes from the regular menu.

The ambiance in Tulum is fantastic. We got there during happy hour and started off with the octopus, tenderloin tartare, and yellowtail crudo—all fabulous. I would go back just for these apps. Scallops and short ribs were delish as well. Next time, I’ll try the lamb chops. Presentation was spectacular.
