    Delicious and innovative. The tostadas, salad and soft shell crabs were excellent. Enjoyed the desserts - panna cotta with the mango mousse and the profiteroles. Service was great. Waiters were kind and patient. The bar was wonderful.

    Delicioso. Platillos muy creativos donde toman ingredientes o recetas tradicionales y las re interpretan, creando cosas que sorprenden a la vista y al paladar. Hay que reservar por que se llena fácilmente. La carta es muy original y cambia constantemente. Vale la pena totalmente.

    Podría ser una muy buena experiencia si se tomaran la molestia de hacerle caso a los comensales cada vez que piden que le bajen el volumen a la música. Normalmente la gente va a un restaurante a COMER y charlar, pero al parecer en Amaya les vale madre porque el volumen es nivel bar-antro en donde vas a gritar y lo que quieres es terminar para salir de ahí. Cada vez que pedimos que le bajaran al volumen la respuesta fue: "es que así pidió el chef el volumen para el evento". Pésimo porque más de una mesa se fue al instante que terminaban de cenar, cuando todo se prestaba a quedarse a hacer sobremesa y seguir consumiendo. Pero tal vez eso le vale madre al chef, la música a volumen alto es su prioridad. Una lástima.

    Cozy ambiance close to Paseo de la Reforma and Glorieta Colon. Softshell crab was excellent. Unusual wine list (Solvenia?), but actually perfect compliment with seafood menu items. Restaurant was full on a weeknight so make reservations ahead. Sane noise level.

    FANTASTIC. The coastal baja-California cuisine and the unique/inventive wine list with a great range of biodynamic and organic wines was so fun to explore. We loved every minute! We especially appreciated the excellent service by Oscar and Sofia!

    Good food, good service, and good wine selection. We had been here once last year and thought we'd come back. I wish there was more variety and options on the menu. I think we pretty much ordered the same items we did last year. Everything was good except the Lubina which we thought was a little intense, we couldn't eat half of it.
