Pujol - Enrique Olvera Ratings and Reviews
Mi esposa y yo los visitamos desde Suecia yo soy cocinero por igual trabajo para los premios Nobel en Stadhuset Estocolmo , la verdad estaba un poco incrédulo acerca de la comida de Enrique pero en cuanto probamos el primer tiempo cambio la perspectiva que tenía fue buena experiencia y muy recomendable.
Flew to Mexico City with the main purpose of dining at Pujol and another accomplaimed restaurant. The creative cuisine did not disappoint though we enjoyed the main entrees of the tasting menu the least. The stylish room was simply decorated. We balked at accepting a table in the corner in the back of the restaurant as one of us would have been facing two walls. Instead we were given a perfect table near the bar with a view of the entire restaurant. The friendly service was exceptional! We would definitely return if we are in Mexico City again!
Went for a lunch date, service was attentive and good overall. Ambiance was pleasant enough. The food is where the problem is. Street snacks appetizer was alright at best, the sea bass (I believe) course was excellent, my main course of lamb was tasteless and boring, my girlfriend had the fish as a main course and was equally unimpressed. Dessert was nice but nothing special. While priced to be a "value" compared to some other fine dining options, the resulting product detracts from any value you can derive from the lower price. I do not recommend Pujol.
This was a great experience, the food was excellent, but honestly we had equally good meals in Mexico City for less than 1/3 the price. For less than 100 US dollars, two people can eat royally at many places in this city, with inventive and exciting chefs. In short, I'm glad I did it, but wouldn't do it again.
Menu started out very strong with smoked baby corn and a perfect amuse bouche of corn cake. The following courses were good, but nothing too memorable until the mole with hoja santa tortillas - simultaneously simple and complex and really beautiful. Service was generally attentive, but once we received the mole course we did not get a description of the course from a server. Granted, we are English speakers and understand that getting a description in English is asking extra - but we were disappointed to not get more info on what seemed like the most special item on the menu. After this course, we loved the chinese pomegranate palate cleanser. We received an incorrect dessert and no apology for the mistake. Once we received the correct dessert we loved them - grilled pineapple and the avocado macadamia options. Service soured after the dessert and we waited close to half an hour to get the check.
A few gems throughout the evening, but not sure if I would come back.
La experiencia en general estuvo muy bien, esperábamos más en el servicio y en sabor para tener el ranking que tiene. Tuvimos varios inconvenientes en el servicio, pequeños detalles que en un restaurante de esa categoría no debería de tener.
Los sabores estuvieron estupendos, no estoy seguro si volvería en un corto tiempo, la comida en general no estuvo para comerse todos los días.
La Sommelier no fue la mejor, le pedimos la recomendación de tener dos botellas de vinos, ella recomendó ser el paring con los platillos y estuvimos de acuerdo; al final trajo vinos diferentes para todos incluso cuando teníamos el mismo platillo. Los Vinos para el pairing eran los de por copeo que en esa ocasión no eran los mejores de la carta, terminamos pagando más por la recomendación de la Sommelier teniendo no la mejor experiencia en vino. A veces siento que en lugares dónde el servicio vive de propinas te recomiendan tener la experiencia más cara para que la propina sea mayor.
Mi mesa la reservé con más de tres meses en anticipación e incluso llamé por teléfono para preguntar si la mesa tiene limite de tiempo ya que comenzaba a las 18:30, me dijeron que la mesa era mía por la noche. A las 21:45 llega la mesera para decirnos que las personas de las 22:00 ya estaban esperando que si podíamos irnos al bar, no tuvimos ningún problema porque ya habíamos acabado pero se me hizo muy extraño que nos trajeran la cuenta antes de pedirla y de muy mal gusto que me hayan mentido en mi reservación.
Nos dieron un tour en la cocina que creo que estuvo muy bueno!
No me arrepiento en haber ido, la pasamos muy bien. La comida fue muy buena increíble experiencia creo que sí vale la pena ir y juzgar por sí mismo. Pero definitivamente eh ido a mejores restaurantes en mi vida incluso en la Ciudad de México, con mejores vinos y por menos.
We had booked months ahead but last minute were able to add our granddaughter who accompanied us to Mexico City. She had introduced me to Pujol through Chefs Table. It did not disappoint. Layered and wonderful and varied flavours. And we were treated like royalty - got menu signed by kitchen and got a tour of the kitchen as well. Bucket list tick.
Que amabilidad y atención de todo el equipo de Pujol
La casa y el diseño no puede ser mas perfecto, la iluminación en general Todo hasta el mas mínimo detalle es muy bien logrado
La comida y los 6 tiempos 🔝🔷🔷🔷🔷🔷
El servicio es excelente. Desde la recepción inicial y durante cada minuto no tiene ni una sola falla. La comida es muy buena, los ingredientes son de primera y el ambiente del edificio lo convierten un un espacio hecho para disfrutar la comida y el momento.
Por otro lado consideramos que hay algunos aspectos en el que el restaurante demerita:
En primer lugar, el tiempo de espera para ser acomodados en la mesa fue exagerado. Ese es un aspecto incómodo que sólo se agrava cuando no hay suficientes lugares donde esperar (una sugerencia al respecto sería que el restaurante se asociara con algún bar cercano y que uno pudiera esperar ahí, más cómodo, sin necesidad de estar parado).
En segundo lugar los alimentos tardan en llegar a la mesa. No es algo que nos hubiera molestado en otro restaurante pero este presume ser uno de los mejores del mundo. Es una pequeña falla que no cambia la experiencia general pero uno debe exigir lo mejor de este lugar.
El último punto tiene que ver con el sabor de los platillos; para alguien que ha comido en México en toda su vida los sabores no sorprenden. Eso no quiere decir que sepan mal o que estén mal preparados. Al contrario, además de que la cocina es de primera, la comida tiene un toque interesante. El problema está en que el toque es parecido a lo que los platillos sabrían en un buen restaurante oaxaqueño.
Relacionado con lo anterior, los comensales son casi todos extranjeros. Aparte de la rara sensación de sentirse en otro país a pesar de estar en México, tal vez esto impida que la comida sorprenda y que exceda la expectativa de quienes somos de aquí.
Esperamos que el análisis no haga creer que el restaurante no es digno de visitar, al contrario, es un lugar en el que se debe comer alguna vez si se está dispuesto a gastar bastante dinero.
Service is excellent. Luis Espinosa, the client services manager, is really good in his job. Food is very good. Pujol is very popular in Mexico City, that reservation has to be done way ahead, aside from sending a confirmation email a few days before your reserved day. You can imagine the price you pay for such an exclusive place.
Last night we enjoyed a phenomenal dinner at Pujol. Not only is Pujol a Michelin Star restaurant, but ranks in the top 50 restaurants in the world and Chef Enrique Olvera was featured on season 1 of Netflix’s Chef’s Table.
The menu changes on a daily basis with 6 and stays true to Olvera’s Mexican heritage.
Last night we enjoyed starters of Mexican Street food - gorditas and smoked baby corn elote style, second courses of chayote squash and octopus (my mother said it's the best octopus she's ever had - very tender), our third course choices were mushroom soup and eggplant tamale, fourth courses of lamb and duck. The fifth course was a duo of moles, one aged for 1475 days topped with a mole made that day and enjoyed with blue corn tortillas. A passion fruit Chile palate cleanser was served before dessert, where we enjoyed the chocolate and avocado options.
We also enjoyed some lovely prosecco, Mexican wine from the Baja region (Corona del Valle, Merlot 2015) and a wonderful Austrian late harvest wine (Tschida AL Seewinkel).
The service was spectacular, the dining room was beautiful and simplistic, plating was gorgeous and they allowed guests to visit the kitchen.
Overall, simply an amazing way to end our México City getaway.
I made our reservation 3 months in advance and was very sad to see that we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant. We were very excited to visit Pujol and planned months in advance for our trip. The table we sat at was definitely an after thought for the restaurant. It was a deuce along the wall beside the bathroom and the galley to the kitchen. Every item that went out of the kitchen and every person who went to the bathroom squeezed past us. The food was amazing and the restaurant was also amazing. So sad that our 3 month wait was disappointing and that will likely be our only opportunity to visit this world renowned restaurant.
I am in the business so I understand these limitations. I will learn from this and hope Pujol does also.
This is a very special place because some of the dishes arevery unique. Others of the dishes were pretty good, about half the dishes knocked my socks off. The atmosphere is wonderful and fantastic in enough itself. It is very creative, the wait staff is very knowledgeable and attentive. Perhaps service I’ve ever received, the waiters and waitresses worked cables in groups and so no attention was ever left lacking. We got into very nice discussion with our waitress About the food types of Chico. Made it over and she was kind enough to take us in the kitchen printer in the picture with the shift. For ambience, service, creativity, this is a top-flight restaurant that is a very special place.
One of the best restaurants that I have visited. The experience was phenomenal. With just one visit and this have become one of my favorite restaurants. It's not just the decor, it's the service. Everyone that works here seems happy. The positive energy radiates to everyone and creates an atmosphere that is magical. Superb! Gracias.
Believe the hype- Eating at Pujol was one of the best eating experiences of my life. Yes- it's costly, but in my opinion the value is there. I ordered off the tasting menu and did the drink pairing and with tip my bill was $235 USD. This included 6 AMAZING courses and 6 beverages perfectly paired with each course. What enhanced the dining experience was that we were seated next to 2 other couples from the states and ended up chatting with them throughout dinner and because we took so long (Pujol allows you to stay for 2.5 hours during the first dinner seating) they moved us outside to the patio for dessert with our new friends. This was a very special occasion for us (we don't usually drop $500 on a dinner for 2), but without hesitation I regret nothing. The food is as good as it is claimed to be and while we did eat things that might have been "better" and cheaper at more local places in CDMX, this was start to finish incomparable and well worth the price.
Not only was the food at Pujol amazing, the service made it even better. I felt so well taken care of and comfortable, and given the complex menu, was able to ask my waiter any questions about what I was eating/drinking. The food was as good as or better than I expected, which says a lot given the huge hype around this place (I first learned about Pujol from Netflix’s Chef’s Table, a curated program about restaurants). So the fact that it all lived up to what that show presents was really impressive. Definitely want to go back and recommend you go out of your way to go here if ever in Mexico City!
