Excelente comida..., tal vez le faltó un poco de tacto al chef con el menú de degustación ya que era una noche fría y lluviosa y presentó varios tiempos fríos.

We were American visitors. This was the best place in CDMX. Everyone said go to Pujol. And yeah, that was great. But for pure quality, Maximo was better. Flavor, preparation, attention to detail — all better. And a better meal at 1/3 the price equals a must-try place.

We tried Maximo Bistrot, like so many others, because we have heard great things about it from fellow American travellers. The tostada was delicious and the homemade breads were warm and fresh. My jamaica margarita was exceptional. The beef tartare was better than average, but the caviar on top added little to the flavor. Its a small restaurant and there are a lot of ex-pats here, which kind of kills the ambiance. Then again, it's a problem that we Americans have created. Can't fault them for that. Would I recommend it? Yes, but there are other places I would recommend first.

La cena estuvo muy buena; la comida de extraordinaria calidad y presentación. El servicio es bueno pero, a pesar de contar con una carta amplia de vinos, nadie vino a recomendarnos nada. Sin embargo, siempre fueron atentos. El concepto del restaurante no contempla ningún lujo, aunque los precios tampoco son de un restaurante con estética tan simplona. El ruido para una cita fue un poco alto; también se debe a que la gente era demasiada. La música que, en volumen un poco alto, parecía de una estación de radio en lugar de algo preparado para el ambiente.

Creo que se mejoraría mucho si remodelan el lugar y preparan más a su personal.

I was disappointed overall. I saw Maximo Bistro on Anthony Bourdain and made a reservation weeks in advance. The service was great, but for such high prices I would expect great flavors and didn’t really find any. One of the dessert servings was really good, but another was not at all. I wanted to like it, but it came up short for me and definitely wasn’t worth the high prices.

This was a very average meal with really scattered and unprofessional service.

The bean soup was great, but both of our entrees were nothing special. I had the mushroom risotto, which relied completely on the cheese sprinkled on top for flavor. My mom had red snapper, which was in a broth that had very little flavor.

The service was terrible. There were 5 waiters, none of whom seemed to have any idea what they were doing. They were also unfriendly. At the end of the meal, they counted the money right at the table, and didn't say thank you for dining until they finished counting the money.

I've never experienced that before. The whole thing was embarrassing as it was my suggestion we go there. Not a good way to end my time in Mexico City.

We had a very great visit with excellent food. Especially the mussles were magnificent. The only claim is that the serving happend too fast, and we had to ask them to slow it down. This might be a preference from our site.

We both had the tasting menu. We added the pulpo (octopus) cevichi. Everything was outstanding. No weak links. The waiter said we'd have 4 plates but I think we had at least 6. One course was scallops. We each were served one half of a scallop. Kind of weird but it was the best scallop I ever had. One course was waygu (spelling) beef. Very nice portion and really yummy. Cocktails were great too.

Amazing culinary experience in a very hip area of Mexico city. Great location for small parties of 2-3. Service is slow unless you are spending a lot, but for two with full meals and drinks it isn't terrible. The food was truly excellent though.

You cannot hope for better service than we received at Maximo Bistrot and the food was outstanding with a few surprising mistakes: roast lamb sliced carpaccio thin and sandy scallops. There is essentially no ambiance and the restaurant feels chaotic.
