We had an excellent meal. Server was attentive but not intrusive, and we were grateful for her English skills because our Spanish is weak. She made good recommendations and kept us from ordering too much. Quality food was outstanding--interesting flavors and a different approach to "typical" food.

The views of the church and sunset are STUNNING from the second floor dining room. Oh my. The food was good and the portions were healthy.

Excelente servicio y comida muy rica , lo
único malo es que no estaba permitido sentarnos en la terraza por que íbamos con nuestra bebé ! y es mucho más linda la parte de la terraza.
Por lo demás lo recomiendo mucho.

Estamos visitando San Miguel de Allende y me recomendaron este restaurante. Lamentablemente la experiencia fue pesima: desde el inicio la atencion fue pesima, no nos trajeron las servilletas, de papel sino hasta 15 minutos de estar sentados en la mesa. Solicite que mis platos no trajeran cebolla sin embargo la ensalada de aguacate que pedi como entrante estaba llena de cebolla. Hice la observacion al mesero en cual no mostro ninguna sorpresa o disculpas. Al finalizar la cena , inmediatamente levantaron todo de la mesa, incluidos los individuales , sin preguntar si ibamos a querer postres. Llame al mesero y se disculpo pero no hizo nada por remediar el error. Los tacos de rib eye estaban con pedazos de carne duras. Mi esposo pidio atun y tenia partes muy cocidas y otras crudas. La musica fuerte, la iluminación no deja ver lo que se come.
Muy costoso para la calidad de la comida, mala atencion y poca cortesia.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a beautiful interior, great location and the rooftop dining has a spectacular view. The timing of the service was off. Entrees came to the table before we were finished with appetizers and salads, then one entree came after everyone was finished eating. They didn't have cloth napkins (perhaps they ran out due to the holiday weekend). Most of the food was good, but not exceptional. We would come back again, but perhaps just for appetizers and cocktails. The staff was very friendly and courteous.

Hay muchas mas opciones en San Miguel para comer delicioso. La Unica esta muy bonito, buena música, pero la comida no esta rica. El Rib Eye seco, la hamburguesa muy salada, el jugo de carne frío como que lo calentaron en microondas recién salido del refrigerador. El servicio es muy bueno, deben poner mas atención a los alimentos, porque es la razón para no regresar.

Muy bien todo! La comida deliciosa, el ambiente increíble. Lo único malo fue el servicio, de verdad que desesperante la cantidad de veces que tuve que pedir el menú, pedimos de tomar y pasaron 40 minutos y no nos traían nada...solo por eso no les pondría 5 estrellas. Tienen que mejorar el servicio si o si

Primero que nada, es reservación SÍ o SÍ. No puedes llegar a pedir mesa y esperar que si ves una vacía pues te la den, ya que son reservaciones abiertas que pueden respetar desde 15mins (lo normal) hasta 3hrs de impuntualidad.

Sin embargo, puedes esperar y si corres con suerte de que se libere una mesa, podrás disfrutar de un buen menú y de un servicio amable pero algo lento.

En cuanto al sabor de los platillos, fueron muy ricas las tostadas de atún, el betabel asado y los tacos de camarón.

La barbacoa estuvo rica y la recomiendo más como entrada para 4 personas (2 tacos por persona)

Respecto al fideo seco, el jitomate sabía un poco ácido.

Lo que no nos gustó para nada es que en la entrada te "detienen" como "antro wanna be" con su cadena.

Absolutely beautiful space in one of the grand houses on Sollano. Five of us ordered way too much food but everything was delicious and we look forward to going back. The roast pork was exceptionally good and could have been shared. There was a large wedding using the roof terrace so we couldn't;t go up there. Another reason to go back. Among the best to the newcomers.

From the moment we arrived we were very well treated. We were five and given a roundtable in a quiet corner by the fireplace. The service was excellent. The food was all good but I would not say it was Outstanding. My salmon was a bit overcooked. The beet salad was ordinary. The chocolate mousse type dessert in the clear glass bowl was the highlight of the dinner.
Be careful when ordering from the right hand side of the menu. It is a long list of very interesting tacos. The tacos title is only at the top and when reading down the list, one does not realize that these are tacos. One taco called asado steak was ordered in error. Our guest thought it was a steak. This required the order of a second entrée in order to give her an actual steak.
But the overall experience was excellent, The ambiance and Decor are beautiful and elegant and we would happily go back.

My family and I had a really bad experience at this restaurant. Starting of with the people at the door they were really pretentious. The waiters were rude and brought us our food and drinks with a bad attitude. My family and I were so tired of having to flag waiters down for attention we gave up and did not even ask for more drinks instead just the check. Which also took years and then they added stuff to the bill that wasn’t ours. The food was not bad but it was not the greatest. First and last time we go there. San Miguel de Allende has so many other great restaurants.

Had a group of 8 friends for Dinner at La Unica. We had been there previously and had had a great dinner when we were just two guests. Obviously the holidays are super busy in San Miguel with many large parties in the restaurant. The service was terrible. We waited about 30 minutes to be served drinks and were never asked if we wanted a second drink, we did. More than an hour had passed and I asked the waiter what is the status of our food. He said he would talk to Chef. Twenty minutes later nada, so I asked that they bring the check since we were leaving. The manager came and asked me for "five minutes" and we would get our food. An hour and a half after ordering we finally had soup. We were given some lame excuse that the order was put into the "system" but kitchen had not received it. Those pesky computers. After having the appetizers, more waiting. I was trying to get the attention of someone, anyone, to obtain the bill so we could just leave. I was finally able to hail the waiter and was told that our dinners were being prepared and would be there any minute. We just wanted the check and I told the waiter we were leaving. They complied with our request. I looked around the area where we were seated and few people had food so clearly we were not the only ones experiencing slow service. La Unica does have decent food, but still has service issues even though it is no longer a "new" restaurant. Go back to the drawing board and re-train your employees on how to deal with issues professionally (be truthful) and fix it. It's regrettable that such a nice-looking eatery has such poor service. There is too much competition amongst good restaurants in San Miguel, and the clientele have become too sophisticated, to tolerate such inefficiency.
