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!

Service was great.

Food was delightful. A different and refreshing menu.

One of the best margaritas I have ever had (so I had two).

Loved the ambiance.

If we are ever back in the area, will visit again

Our server, Ryan, took the time to answer all our questions about the delicious drinks and food. Best house margarita hands down. Also, full sleeve was delicious, even though I’m not a mezcal fan!

We really love the food and the atmosphere here. We gave four stars for the food, not because it isn't excellent (it definitely is), but because they had a couple more vegan/vegetarian options for the entrees. As it stands, they have a myriad of fantastic appetizers and sides, but they could really use one or two more main dishes. Right now they have vegetarian/vegan tacos (the exact type changes daily, but all versions we've had have been excellent), and a stuff poblano pepper. I guess you could get that without cheese, but it would be nice if they had vegan cheese as an option, or one other entree. Otherwise, we LOVE this place, and it's certainly one of the best Mexican restaurants if not the best in Saratoga Springs. Cantina is also good, but basically more traditional, and there are a couple others as well. And we haven't even mentioned the drinks, which is truly excellent. Finally, every time we've been there, the service has been outstanding, and we love the atmophere. We will be back again and again.

I love Tatu on Taco Tuesdays! Ask for the vegetarian taco special. I have only been there twice to dine so far, but plan to keep going back. The service has always been good, from hostess to server to bartender. Oh, and I love love love their outdoor dining space!

The whole fried fish was exceptional. Margaritas were very good. The veggie chile relleno got rave reviews. Other tacos were very well received too. The flourless chocolate cake was delicious, and had a nice heat to it.

Mixing Mexican and Lebanese sounded like an interesting combination to try. In reality it fell short of average. It started with the totally uncomfortable, narrow metal chairs out on the uneven surfaced patio. That started us out with a wobbly and uncomfortable setting right from the start.
We decided to share a couple of appetizers and chose the fish taco's as our entrée. The fried meatballs arrived cold and completely dried out. With no sauce to accompany them they were simply too dry to eat.
The Garlic Avocado Guacamole and house made chips were actually quite good and easily the highlight of the meal.
The Mexican street corn salad would have been good if it was served warm as the flavor was pretty good but as it is served cold the cheese simply congealed onto the corn in a clumpy mess offering none of the umami goodness of true street corn.
The fish tacos come with pickled onions and radishes. An unusual taco combination but their flavor was pretty good. It was the fish that was the problem. They use a spicy sea salt on everything including the popcorn you get when seated. Our fish was massively over seasoned with it.
Overall the entirety of the meal was a disappointment. I cannot see us ever going back to even try it again unless they change the seating and rethink the menu at a minimum.

Everything we tried was yummy - especially the Mexican corn salad, chips & salsa and the churro waffle with Mexican hot Chocolate gelato for dessert. Chase our waiter and the rest of the wait staff were lovely.

Very tasty tacos (we tried 3 dif kinds, and looking forward to trying the others) Tequila options were a bit overwhelming at first, but the bartender/and our waitress, Danielle, had great recommendations. Overall outstanding service from the entire staff! Thanks for a nice night!

Best dining experience we’ve had in YEARS. Jacob was our server and he was excellent. He was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. For the first time in years we actually were waited on. Read that again!
The food was fantastic and the tequila was sublime.

Tortilla chips- definitely not a freshly maid, tastes like a cheap supermarket brand. Ordered tacos- worst presentation I have ever seen, while the portions are relatively big. Tortillas are thick and chewy.
