We ate here in our first night in CDMX. Very festive atmosphere - not the place for a quiet date. Menu was big and presentations were very interesting. More of a fun night out than a serious dining experience kind of place.

Food was very good. I recommend the cauliflower. Service was fast but we had to return the check twice, once because they charged us for water when it was offered to us without explaining we were being given bottled water, and another time because they got one of our dishes wrong.

recomiendo que NO VAYAN A ESTE LUGAR, la peor experiencia en la vida... No respetan el menú, ordené una ensalada y en lugar de comentarte que no tienen los ingredientes, la arman con lo que tienen en el refri. Hice reservación para cenar a las 7:30 pm y a las 10 pm se acerca el "gerente" y me pide la mesa por que la tenía reservada para otros clientes para cenar y que mi reservacion ya habia terminado y de manera muy grosera nos pide que nos retiremos del lugar... que lugar! obvio nos molestamos mucho y ya no era comodo estar ahi...
para terminar la gran noche, el valet parking (que tal vez no es su responsabilidad) me roba...

One of the best dining experiences I have ever had! The food was so tasty but the ambiance and decor took the cake! I loved it so much! Very posh but comfortable and inviting.

Great food as usual at La Unica! We come here regularly and are always pleased by the excellent food, nice surroundings and great service. I can definitely recommend La Unica.
Only negative point: the music is often too loud, and/or of a very repetitive.

La comida de este restaurante es buena. Pero el volumen de la música estaba extremadamente alto, lo cual impedía mantener una conversación normal, había que gritar practicamente como si estuvieramos en un antro. Pedimos por favor bajaran el volumen tres veces, jamás accedieron a nuestro pedido. Tampoco nos enviaron la factura del consumo al correo electrónico como nos habían prometido. Si este ambiente ruidoso continua, dudo poder volver a este lugar.

Amazing place with modern and vibrant decor. Food is lovely, heavy seafood menu, but some meat dishes so don’t be put off if you don’t like sea food. Very expensive.

Lot’s of hip and attractive people. Very attentive staff. I did not like being seated by the door as a cold draft came in each time. The staff was aware and quickly closed the door if it was left open. We went for the seafood and were not disappointed except for the very salty octopus dish. We would have sent it back but we were hungry and devoured it. Ambiance was loud but fun. I would definitely go back.

One of many recent lux cantinas opened in Polanco. Loud, full of attitude, crowded. Good, expensive food. Full of "juniors" Good place to scope the professionals out on the town. Bad place for a business meeting or a quiet dinner. Maitre d not very welcoming. Service nice but overstreched.
