Food and drinks were adequate. We were not happy with ordering a special that turned out to be very expensive (about 4 times more than any other dish on the menu) without the waiter ever giving us notice.

No ambience in the main dinning room, very bad acoustic, it looks like a self-service/fast food restaurant.
All the selected courses were not available on a Friday @ 8:30 pm !!!

Very commercial, for tourist.

A new restaurant still working out some bugs, like not having a Mezcal or Tequila list, but the margaritas were world lass with cilantro in them and the mole was to die for. Great selection of mezcal and tequila, but they need to list them!

I was really excited to try Bakan but it just fell short. The ambience and decor is great. The food is very mediocre and the drinks are bad. Three people from my party has to send their drinks back. The food is just okay. I wouldn’t come back now recommend here.

Our reservation was 9:30 pm, and when we get to the restaurant they inform us that we need to order as quick as possible because de kitchen service was closing. During the dinner me and my friend felt like they are rushing our meal, to close the restaurant. Food is great, but the service was not so good.

Food and concept was decent. Service was pathetically bad. We didn’t know who our server was and after 15 minutes when we asked they were barely responsive. Most of the staff were rude and distant and not helpful. People picked up half eaten plates and drinks without asking. Worst service I’ve had at a restaurant in a long time.

The menu was interesting with unusual cocktail and food combinations and ingredients not usually found in your typical Mexican restaurant such as zucchini flower quesadillas and cucumber chili margaritas. The cilantro dressing for the shrimp, mango and avocado ceviche was fresh and unique, the pepitas adding another layer of texture. We judge EVERY Mexican restaurant’s worth by its queso fundido and the chorizo option was delicious and flavorful served with what looked like house-made blue corn tortillas. We opted for the “Asado a La Lena Para Taquea Estilo El Mercado De Oaxaca" with the short rib and it came out looking like a decadent brontosaurus rib! Tender with crispy, charred bits, it was excellent. I couldn’t resist eating it with my hands like a cavewoman, dipping and savoring each piece of meat into the accompanying guajillo chili au jus! Just divine and enough for two to share!

Loved the food, everyone is right - the queso and the guacamole are great! We ordered the skirt steak platter to share, loved it! Prices are fair, service great. Patio is really nice but construction on two sides and the flies were intense so when I go back, we will eat inside. Definitely worth the trip from Fort Lauderdale.

The food is very good. The venue is nice. The service was amazing. The manager was very accommodating since my son is allergic to chicken and pork there wasnt anyhting for him on the menu and allowed us to bring in a pizza for him. He later offered us shot of mezcal that was delicious. His name is Marvin and I recognized him from several of my other fave spots. Our waiter cant remember his name was always great and made wonderful suggestions. He just moved here from California.

I love this place. The uniqueness of the food and the drinks makes this place a culinary delight. The vibe is hip and welcoming. But the best part of Bakan is the wait staff, every time we get someone great. This time we had David who was beyond amazing. He was knowledgeable about the tequila and all the food.

Notable Dishes
1. Anything with the mole. I believe cooking with mole is an art by which many chef suck with the medium. The chefs at Bakan are mole artist.
2. Squash Flower Quesadilla
3. Seafood Ceviche
4. Baked cheese thingy. My party kept ordering more if that thing so it must have been good.
5. Snapper

If you are hanging in Wynwood and are looking for something different, a good welcoming and yummy time head to Bakan.

Food was good and the ambience was really nice especially on the outdoor patio. My only complaints were 1, the staff kept asking if they could take our plates while I was still eating, and 2, the restaurant is right beside a club with extremely loud music.
