The food was very good but portions were quite small. We ordered 5 dishes to share amongst 4 people and still left hungry. The ambiance was very nice.

El restaurant está muy bonito! El servicio terrible desde que llegamos andaba de mal humor y con su servicio se nos hacía la digestión de plato en plato! Vinos y carta restaurant del no hay, el lechón no estuvo para hoy y de vinos solamente tenían los más caros. Y para acabar la comida nos hizo daño.

Esperaba más, el menú de degustación está muy simple la explicación de los alimentos y del menú es mala. Los meseros tienen que mejorar la atención es mala. La comida es buena sin llegar a ser sobresaliente por el precio esperas mucho más sobre todo servicio

Maximo is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere and certainly my favorite in Mexico City. Fine food, a good wine selection with a very fun helpful sommelier, Nan, and all in a lovely convenient location.

Food was good, but not exceptional. Dinner for 4 was almost $200 USD which is VERY expensive for Mexico City. Wouldn’t go back.

El tamaño de las porciones se ha ido reduciendo cada vez más.... yo creo que ya están exagerando un poco. Entiendo que sea comida muy gourmet, pero la cantidad que sirven ya llega a dar risa.

When we were in Mexico City last week for a conference we had lunch at Maximo Bistrot. We're from New York City and have eaten in our share of wonderful restaurants, but overall our meal at Maximo was one of the best in memory. The food was interesting, but recognizable and the flavors and freshness outstanding. We weren't overwhelmed by the noise or the ambiance. Like the staff, the decor was down to earth and comfortable. Our experience could not have been better.

We were just delighted with Maximo Bistrot. Go for the 4-course tasting menu with wine pairing, it is so worth it. The presentation was impeccable, the taste delicious, textures, diferent layers of flavors. And the staff was outstanding. Congrats to the Maximo team they really do a great job, will definitely come back.

Disappointed. The food was outstanding: wonderful ingredients, creative dishes that are well executed and are full of amazing flavors. But excellent food is (fortunately) a given in Mexico City. The downside was their service overall: from the hosts to the bartender upstairs to the waiting staff.
1. I called in the morning to ask if they could change my reservation for 2 and include 1 more guest. They said no, but suggested I cancel that reservation and come in a little later than my scheduled time, and as they weren’t too busy they would seat us shortly after we got there.
2. Once there, we waited for an hour to get a table. Seated at the bar upstairs, it felt like they had forgotten about us and didn’t come to check on us for a while. We finally ordered 3 appetizers to have while we still waited, which came from the kitchen at different times.
3. When finally at the table, the main courses also came out of the kitchen at different times.
4. The waiter was appalling: when placing service items on the table he dropped the dishes in front of us instead of gently placing them (it’s ceramic!). He was dry and grouchy with us. The least friendly waiter I’ve ever encountered in this town.
So, the food is wonderful but however good it is doesn’t make up for a terrible service overall.

They did a wonderful job of a creative menu and very well executed. Most of the options are not very large so we ordered three apps, two first courses and two second courses plus dessert. All of the food we very well done, cooked correctly and delicious. Presentation of all of the dishes could use improvement but that was really the only thing that was not excellent. They have a good wine list as well. We loved the experience and would absolutely return again.

Excellent food and service. A bit too noisy for a bistrot but it worths the visit.
Portions a bit small but again delicious.
Very good experience in Mexico City.

Maximo Bistrot no deja de sorprender por la calidad de sus ingredientes, la frescura de cada presentación, el SABOR de sus platillos y la atención del Chef Lalo. Es simplemente ESPECTACULAR. Cenamos entre cuatro y le pedimos al chef que nos mandara lo que quisiera... DELICIA. Realmente Lalo ha alcanzado un nivel internacional de la más alta calidad, tanto en sabores como en presentación. Su ética de trabajo brilla en cada plato, en verdad no es rollo. Hay que ir e ir e ir....
