Lamentablemente fue una decepción! Después de leer recomendaciones y ser catalogado como de los mejores restaurantes de cdmx, al llegar te encuentras con algo totalmente diferente de la concepcion realizada. El lugar es pequeño pero no tiene un ambiente que te atraiga, al ver el menú que es con pocas elecciones por ser por temporada ves precios elevados pero cuando llegan los platos no se justifican ni por el sabor o la porción que sirven, en verdad los sabores muy planos desde la entrada hasta el postre, solo es rescatable el servicio y la sommelier que nos atendió esa noche! En verdad nada recomendable y para cerrar con broche de oro cuando vas al baño para secarte las manos solo tienes un trapo de cocina para secarte las manos y que quien sabe cada cuánto lo cambian. En resumidas cuentas una decepción!.

Excellent food ! Love the casual feel and the relaxed environment. Service was friendly and accommodating. We had the sweet onion , the green salad and the chicken ... everything was superb. Their sommelier was amazing! She was very helpful in suggesting something that would suit our palate without sounding pretentious. Will be back soon !

All is good, however sitting on the outside is somewhat annoying. Beggars and sales people are allowed. They interrump the conversation and diminish the overall experience.

Maximo Bistrot is an exceptional restaurant and was one of the top highlights of our trip to Mexico City. The service was superior. The food was extraordinary from the first bite to the desert. According to our waiter the chef was in a good mood when we came to the restaurant and so we ended up getting eight separate courses instead of the four that we paid for. This meal was counted as one of the best of our lives.

Mexican ingredients with French preparation. This charming spot is friendly and warm, with excellent service and fun people watching in the gringo-tourist area of Roma Norte. Each course of the tasting menu was a delight, and the paired wines included German and Mexican selections, including a spectacular natural Pinot. Hope to return!

I was pretty disappointed after bringing my wife here. The service was very cold. I will point out that nice Sommelier. SHE was excellent. The waiters and staff treated us as more of an annoyance than anything else. No explanation of the menu, specials.. or what they would even recommend. The food was not worthy of the price. At least the Sommelier recommended a great wine for us!

Let’s start by saying the food is really good. We arrived 15 minutes late, so we waited upstairs for 35 minutes, which was not a problem, as we had a few drinks. As we waited, it was evident that the waiter paid more attention to the other parties around us, perhaps because they were bigger, perhaps because they looked like they were going to consume more... something just did not feel right. We also had to ask for the menu. We had to ask for more juice after ordering a second mezcal shot... The service got better once we sat, but the beginning did not feel right. And don’t even get me started on the attitudes of some of the customers. Triste. Let me end by saying the food is terrific.

Our favorite restaurant in Mexico City. Highly Recommend. The only issue was reading the menus - the light in the restaurant and the small print made the menus very difficult to read (for young and old alike).

Buen servicio, los meseros amables y te dan información respecto a los ingredientes y preparado de los platillos.
La comida deliciosa mi único tema fue su agua del día que era de mango y sentía las fibras del mango lo cual no era nada agradable.
Recomendable al 100%

Esperamos casi dos horas por nuestra mesa teniendo reservación , nos hicieron esperar en el bar y venían a ver si se nos ofrecía algo cada que les daba la gana, cero amabilidad , la actitud es así somos nosotros si quieres , si no te gusta no nos importa. La comida buena pero no exquisita , las dos tostadas de cangrejo tenían restos del caparazón , impresentable !!! El risotto rico pero una porción minúscula ... el servicio del mesero que nos toco de lo peor , no es que fuera majadero pero sin rastros ni de amabilidad ni de cortesía . Dicho esto me parece que lo que había escuchado de este lugar está sobrevalorado o quizás que la clientela que los ha calificado antes no tienen referencias correctas para comparar.

The restaurant is amazing. The two things I think you can improve is, if someone needs a taxi or uber, I think you can make the call. The waiters behave distant from the clients. Maybe is the way you think, but made me feel a robot was serving us.

I have been told this was one of the top reataurants in the city. I read several reviews and it seems outstanding.

For a saturday nite date with my bf we decide going there.

The place is nice and quite. Small and private.
The service was good.. but I expected more regarding the menu.

Ravioles was a surprise, they were actually the best.

We were expecting an outstanding rissoto, I mean, 600 pesos in rice, that should be amazing. It was ok. I have had better in less snob places.

The waiter brought the ravioles with an extra ingredient we did not ask for. When we told him, instead of changing, he said: no worry is on me! Like if it was due the price and not for our preference. This was rude.

I think it was Ok. But I prefer other options better. Same price, better quality and service.

Pedí pechuga de pato, el platillo solo contenía 3 rebanadas súper delgadas de las cuales era más piel que carne, el pan de fua grass es pésimo, no nos ofrecerieron otro tipo de pan y las tostadas para un carpaccio las tuve que pedir yo, no me ofrecieron hielo para el agua y me la querían servir al tiempo .
Los meseros muy distraídos , tuve que levantar la mano más de 3 veces .
El asiento de la mesa que me ofrecieron incómodo(solo eres una tabla sin respaldo) aparte que cuando llegue estaba sucio , lleno de migajas .
El costo de los platillos no debería de ser el que manejan puesto que en lo demás hay varias deficiencias de servicio .
El ruido de los coches es terrible .
Las copas para el vino tinto son pequeñas .
No lo recomendaría .
