As soon as we decided to travel to Mexico City we looked into booking at Quintonil. Using Open Table, we were able to get a reservation. It was fantastic. The food was creative, delicious, and beautifully presented- actually works of art. The use of local and novel ingredients made the meal an adventure. We did the tasting menu with pairing and, for anyone going to Quintonil for the first time, I would say that is a must. They use some very interesting ingredients that, if ordering off of the al a carte menu, I would have avoided (escamoles, corn smut), but I am glad that I was able to enjoy the dishes that the chef put together using these items. The beverage pairing was top notch--not just wine, but cocktails, sherry, wine and even beer with one course. Well thought out and perfectly paired.

Creo que esta sobrevalorado.
La sala, decoración y mobiliario están por debajo de lo normal en un restaurante de este nivel.
Hay muchas mesas que están en un pasillo por el que pasa todo el mundo al baño y es un ir y venir de meseros.

The food was very very good, we appreciate it very much. Octopus, beans and tortilla yucatana and scallop dish very simply wonderful. The sommelier was very good to explaine all the matches with wines and drinks.
Thank you, we appreciate it.
Hasta luego

We were blown away by almost every course of the tasting menu. The ones we weren't blown away by were still amazing. The food took us on a journey with each course building or transitioning from the previous smoothly. We wanted to savor every bite and every moment of the meal.

Amazing tasting menu, did not leave you too full. A very long experience (over 4 hours!) so plan accordingly. Was extremely accommodating to our group allergies (gluten, cilantro,onion). Decor was just okay for a fine dining restaurant. Being charged for was annoying when we were spending so much money already but small price to pay. Presentation of the food was amazing. Previously dined at Pujol and this was much better food (taste and appearance, like works of art!)

I've never given 5 stars on OpenTable for food. The meal at Quintonil was absolutely amazing! Blew away our expectations. They have a very talented team of chefs in the back that compliment each other. I would return next time we are in Mexico City without a doubt.

The wine pairing is a can't miss! Well done. Love the variety of mixing beer and sake as well. Superb!

Note: leave ample time to get to the restaurant if you're new to the city. The traffic is bad all night long! 8km took us an hour to travel by car.

Quizás el mejor restaurante al que he ido hasta ahora, el lugar es sencillo pero hermoso, el servicio es perfecto, Jorge y Juan Carlos nos atendieron de mil maravillas, atentos a nuestras necesidades, Carmen se preocupó por cuidar cada petición, hasta un mapa para llegar a un lugar, y la comida, la estrella del lugar, todo fue perfecto, para celebrar nuestros primeros 8 meses de matrimonio, la comida exquisita, el cordero y la pesca del día espectaculares, los trocitos de lengua, de entrada, de lo mejor, y los postres irresistibles, todo al mejor estilo de la comida mexicana. Simplemente fue otro nivel!
