Probamos alrededor de 6 platillos. Entre entradas y platos fuertes.
El único tema que les faltaría mejorar, es el servicio.
Toman muchísimo tiempo en atenderte, en traer las bebidas, y entre un plato y otro.
Quizá también añadiría que las presentaciones son muy muy pequeñas, que en este caso, sí caen en lo pretencioso.
Sin embargo el sabor muy bueno

Traveled from Denver Colorado USA to have dinner at Chef Garcia’s place. Our waiter, Pedro, was great...knowledgeable, great pairing suggestions, and a ton of fun! Tip: if you don’t get the elotes w/ white truffle you have made a dangerous mistake! Fantastic experience! Bucket list must when in Ciudad de Mexico!!!!

We had a lovely meal. They were very accommodating when we showed up 45 minutes late due to horrible traffic. We had the chefs tasting menu and everything was fresh with creative touches. We particularly liked the strawberry mezcal cocktails and the fish courses. We sat outside which was pleasant. The inside of the restaurant is a bit crowded and loud.

Amazing and delicious as always. Pedro is the waiter to request.
Take a chance and try something that might be out of your comfort zone, Chef García and his team have a knowledge and passion for the food they are offering.
This is a place where you can relax and eat and enjoy the energy of others who have come to do the same. Very relaxed atmosphere and beautiful design.
The best food I have ever had.

Maximo Bistrot was the best dinner we had in Mexico City with delicious, well-prepared food and unobtrusive, yet attentive service. Every course was excellent and the desserts were outstanding too. The night we went a celebrity chef (Jonathan Waxman) was dining, and there was absolutely no noticeable effect on our service. It is a very unpretentious place with exemplary food.

I was so excited to go to Maximo Bistrot after reading it was doing great things with food, and they where not wrong, the food, was superb! One thing I didn't like, was the reception. We arrived 20 mins early, went inside and got promptly told we couldn't enter as they where cleaning the tables. You would think that they could offer you a cocktail, and seat you on one of the many ready, and empty tables outside.

Five stars for the food. We shared five dishes. They were superb. Usual food prepared wonderfully with interesting and simple twists. The squash soup was warming to the soul; the baby corn nicely prepared; the artichokes in its own broth with tarragon; the beets presented nicely and the snapper with creamed eggplant and fish sauce. This menu represented the use of usual ingredients used uniquely. The kind of restaurant that makes those that like to cook among us say: 'Why don't I try something like that.' The prices compared to the other ridiculously expensive places as with Quintinil and Puhol guarantee that you will have received value in your meal.
The service not so good. And I did not have expectations in a restaurant like this of white glove service. Never returned or asked for my drink order. Would have like another piece of bread to collect some of the remaining broths and sauces, allowed the customers next to us to double up in their chairs making our experience somewhat uncomfortable and certainly claustrophobic, cannot read the menu given the lighting inside where we sat and the placement by the door a little too chilly for full comfort.

Si quieres fantochear, agarrar el pedo y/o atascarte este NO es el lugar para hacerlo. Excelente comida en un lugar muy casual que impresiona por su sabor más que por su diseño. Porciones justas para satisfacer y no tener mal del puerco, aún así cuenta con varios digestivos en la carta. Sabores que te recuerdan a la abuela en un ambiente rústico y platillos con presentación contemporánea. Está rico, está caro, lo vale.

Wow. Where do I begin? We started here for our first meal in Mexico City, and we were only left wanting to return every night of our trip! First off, their cocktail menu—yes!!!! So many unique options, and it is listed progressively, starting with aperitifs and and moving through the meal. Both aperitif cocktails we had were AMAZING and unique. We then enjoyed a bunch of small plates, like the octopus ceviche (WOW!), scallop aguachile (MIND BLOWING), the stuffed morel mushrooms with short ribs (so good!) and the roasted beets (most flavorful beet dish we have ever had). We ordered the Red Snapper (huanchinango) for our main, and it was so delicious!! The bread....also equally incredible, and the eggplant spread they bring with it?!? Also one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. Dessert was the most unique and delicious creme brûlée I have ever had as well. Overall, this was one of the most delicious and unique dining experiences we have ever had, and at the price of 1/3 of what you would pay in the States or even at other fine dining establishments elsewhere. Absolutely loved every moment. Can’t wait to go back!
