Great place with great ambiance. The quality of the food match with the quality of the decoration of the restaurant. Look up the ceiling and appreciate the "repujado" technique used for that. Nowdays ...that type of decoration is rare to find, specially here is the US. It can be a little bit noisy on a Saturday night but you will be able to hold a conversation without a problem with some good rock en español in the background.
On the drinks menu, definitely give a try to "real de catorce". It's a new addition recommended by our waitress. Overall, great place, really good service and the quality of the food and the decoration of the place will take you to Mexico without a passport.......and without a stupid wall. Cheers!

The only redeeming thing about this place was our server. The host was all of 16ish looking years old and very haughty. He acted annoyed at every interaction. Food was meh. No vegetarian options as dishes. So vegetarians ear only appetizers? Disappointed. Alcohol? Tequila or wine. That's all. Never going back. See More

Ran in for a quick bite. I explained we were on a schedule. The staff was accommodating and quickly put together our order. You don't often find sopes on a Mexican restaurant menu...when you do, you m...ust order them! I love sopes and these were delicious. The albondigas were delicate and full of flavor. We also enjoyed roasted vegetables and tacos de carnitas. Every time I dine here I enjoy a Paloma, a tequila based cocktail. This is a great place for a quick bite or an extended dinner with friends. Small plates to share and well stocked bar of tequilas and mezcal. See More

***Tamarindo is a gem in the heart of Oakland and pride to our Bay area for Mexican cuisine!*****
The staff-- Great customer service and always well staffed. Very curteous and you get a good vibe whe...n you come in.
Ambiance-- Besides it's distinguished decor where you will see much of our beautiful Mexico as you look around the place, they thoughtfully injected a modern high end touch and authenticity without loosing the feel of our roots.
The food--Well, we can go on and on! CHEF Gloria truly takes pride in the flavor and presentation in each dish and the fact that she travels specifically to different little hidden towns in Mexico to bring back that "ancestral" cooking style is a joy to our taste buds.

We had heard about Tamarindo and finally paid a visit to give it a try. Unfortunately the experience was somewhat disappointing.
The decor is very nice as well as the music. The service was friendly, ...but slow and disorganized. The fish tacos were good, but the mulitas lacked flavor. For the price, the portions are small with a very basic presentation. See More

Owner made me feel welcomed. As a new patron ( and local) this meant a lot & I plan to return with friends. The Tacos and Ceviche were terrific.

I was very happy to find entrees from the Yucatan area. The Cochinita Pibil was delicious! The hand made tortillas were excellent and even their house margarita was amazing!

Enjoyed the authenticity of the food, the margaritas aren't your typical margaritas they take a fun spin and serving size allows you to try more from the menu. And the decoration is fresh, contemporar...y yet still Mexican. See More
