The food we ate at lunch was at once sublimely delicious and ineffably simple. The ceviche was sparkling, fresh and subtly seasoned. My husbands fish perfectly cooked with delicate saucing and accompaniments, while my pasta with lamb Rago was perfectly rustic in its chewiness and bold flavor. We had delicious Mexican wine. Soooo good!

We ordered the crostini de escamole as an entrada and it was really delicious. As main courses, we ordered the picaña and the chicken. While we truly enjoyed the flavors of both dishes, which came with a side of mashed potatoes, we felt the portions were too small. You will definitely need to order an appetizer or dessert (or two!) to fill up. Also, the main dishes came with a side of spinach that, while nicely cooked, really lacked flavor.

No solo la comida es increíble, la filosofía del lugar es también increíble (nada de "pose", nada de "sobrevalor económico de alimentos"). La gente del servicio es sencilla y muy amable; tal vez podría mejorar un poco su atención.

Toda la comida estuvo deliciosa, todo muy fresco y de buena calidad. La bebidas estaban deliciosas, al principio cuando llegué acababan de abrir y parecía que aun no estaban bien organizados, tardaron un poco en traer el menú y las bebidas. Pero después todo fue muy eficiente, estuvimos bien atendidos. y disfrutamos del servicio y la comida. Vale la pena! Fue el mejor restaurante que visité durante mi estancia en Mexico.

Magnifico. Después de varios días de muy buena comida en México, regreso a Maximo Bistrot a cerrar con Broche de Oro. Genial. Lo que mas me gusta es que el ambiente es calmado, sin música a todo volumen.

Maximo Bistrot siempre ha sido un lugar de comida deliciosa con un precio razonable, pero esta vez me pareció que las porciones eran miserables para el precio y me creo mucha decepción. Esto podría causar que no vuelva. Fue literal media taza de risotto y no mas, cuando en general el risotto como plato fuerte se sirve abundante.

This restaurant is very highly rated but was a huge disappointment given the quality of food generally available in the city. Most of the tables are on the sidewalk under some plastic with noisy traffic on the street and a view of a concrete lamp post. The food was fine for the most part but not exceptional for a restaurant with this kind of reputation and at this price point. Our waiter was not very gracious. Also, the dessert, a cheesecake, was a disgrace,. You could expect better cheesecake at OXO.

It's a solid meal: service was good; presentation was great; and food tasted great. Not sure if I would return the next time I am in town since there are so many other places to try and it is challenging to get a time/day that you want.

We arrived but we only offered seating outside. The tables were so close everyone hears your conversation. For cocktails appetizers and main course, one of us was served 5 minutes before the other. When asked to take my husband main course away until mine was ready, it was simply left there and my main course brought several minutes later while I was still eating my appetizer. The food was delicious but this is not an inexpensive restaurant and service should be at the level of the food. Dinner was very rushed.

Amazing restaurant. My husband who is vegan said it was one of the best tasting menus he’d ever had. They made everything especially for him, didn’t take existing dishes and remove ingredients. If we lived in Mexico City this would be our to go to restaurant. I though service was very good, waiters warmed up through service, but grapest care and attention throughout
