I ate here early in the evening, and had the place to myself. I enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The ambiance is hip and comfortable. The service is impeccable. The food is delicious. There's a good wine list and there also appeared to be a good cocktail menu as well, although I stuck to the wine. Before my meal arrived,... More

Our reservation had not made it into the book, but the restaurant was empty and we were seated. Then, three or four servers asked to take our drink order which never arrived until we asked a fourth server. The meal was good, but not memorable.

I was in Fairmont and, with my colleagues, we decided to have dinner at Tatu due to the positive reviews. The place is not so nice, a sort of big room with some separe'; where we were really disappointed was with the Chateaubriand steak, which came cold and was not so nice to eat (it should be the best plate)....

We had a wonderful peaceful and delicious meal! Our server (Kennedy) was attentive and professional, which made the meal even more enjoyable. This is an expensive restaurant but well worth it!

As my title suggests, the interior decorators have done a great job with the ambience which is welcoming and contemporary The service is definitely 4 star, but not yet 5!
