Eight years ago, Maximo Bistrot started as a restaurant for the thinking and execution of dishes from a wide range of techniques with the best of local ingredients; a warmful place that communicated our love for food. After a long and heartwarming road at our current location, we thought for the need of moving. Our new home, located at Alvaro Obregon 65 bis - a much wider space where gleams of natural light shine upon the surface-, is carefully assembled by Gabriela's meticulous look, and a kitchen built within Eduardo García's early memories, while living as an inmigrant in a barn in Ohio. Despite this big change, our principles initially founded remain the same: to offer food that distinguishes the best of local products.

Hace 7 años mi esposo y yo fuimos por 1a vez a Maximo Bistro y tengo que reconocer que tanto tiempo después siguen manteniendo el nivel de calidad de comida que al inicio.
En nuestro caso, la atención y servicio bueno y eficiente, incluso nos dieron una bebida de cortesía al avisar en la reserva que era nuestro aniversario. La comida sí son porciones pequeñas, pero para pedir varios platillos y compartir es ideal. En cuanto a precio, entre 1000 y 1500 por persona que, comparado con otros restaurantes de reputación similar es significativamente más barato (ie. Quintonil, Pujol)

Yo volveré y sigo recomendándolo.

Amazingly delicious, superb service, very fresh ingredients. Loved it! We had the degustacion menu, and read the price wrong. Ended up being the most expensive meal I've ever paid for, but thankfully it was a great dining experience!

I went there for an anniversary dinner from Miami, USA. Me and my partner thought the food was delicious and beautifully prepared, the service was excellent, and the prices were fair. The atmosphere was enjoyable and we received complimentary champagne coupes to celebrate our occasion. We will return if we ever visit mexico city again.

First off, the food was incredible and so perfect.
I didn’t get the reviews about service till we went. It seems like the space is too small and hectic for the service to be what you expect for this type of restaurant in this city. On the night we went, they were also serving a very large party that cause extreme chaos. We both ordered the tasting menu and half of the time had no idea what we were eating. Dishes were partially explained, but the noise level was so outrageous that it was sometimes impossible to hear. Our neighbors were able to supplement info once their dishes were delivered, a course behind ours. Several times we were delivered incorrect plates and we had to be mindful to reject courses that had already been delivered. One course was delivered incomplete and we weren’t aware until the neighbors were served the same course as it was meant to be consumed.
It was chaos. Our last night after two weeks in Mexico City was supposed to be a lovely date and it was more of a headache.
The other thing that I feel is important to share. We ordered the six course tasting menu with wine pairings. This was delivered within ONE HOUR. Six courses with drink pairings in one hour. Just. No. Never in my life. On more than one occasion there were multiple courses on the table.
This food was good. GOOD. And deserves a much less frantic setting to be appreciated in. There are other fantastic restaurants in CDMX and the experience is nothing like this. Acceptably paced, well staffed, enough space to avoid a crowded and loud dining room. I say this because I want to be clear that I’m not comparing this restaurant to others in Chicago, New York, DC.

I hope they move to a new space.
I would request outside seating if possible to avoid the insanity of the dining room. And truly, for large drunk groups, they should really require the party to book the entire room instead of forcing the few tables not involved to have a botched meal.

This restaurant has no atmosphere and is overrated. The food was mediocre. On Open Table it states French cuisine among other. I have been in France about 300 times, having lived in Europe for 23 years, but the food at Maximo Bistro did not even come close in anything France. My husband and I left after the main course. Sea bass that was as big as my thumb. We had desserts and coffee in an another nicer restaurant and were very disappointed about this one, especially after the hype and having to make reservations 2 months ahead, guaranteeing with a credit card. If you cancel within 48 hours, you will have to pay a fee. I travelled the world and never experienced such a thing in any restaurant. Do not waste your appetite and money. Do NOT go there!

This is that kind of place that food quality and taste offset any opportunity area the restaurant has; we were 6 people and every single dish was better than the other. It is clear why is so difficult to get a table in this place. Highly recommended!

We were there just three nights ago yet difficult to remember from far less expensive or "important" restaurants on our trip. In fact, we'd heard it was so amazing we booked for two meals and cancelled one after the first. Yes, it is good, just fine. Just not as important as some make it seem. We met a lovely couple at the next table who drove us home and that was one of the best experiences, so maybe it is a more special place to foster that kind of friendliness.

We were rushed through the first and second courses and had to ask them to wait to bring out our entree. Overall experience was hampered by a sense of urgency. Food is good. Room is charming.

Restaurante muy sobrevalorado, extremadamente caro, porque no solo la comida se cobra, cuando en un lugar te venden platillos de ese precio, es porque el lugar ofrece gran ambiente, decoración, mobiliario, y esto es una fondita muy pretensiosa, que cobra por comida nada espectacular un exorbitante sobre precio.

For this restaurant is all about the food ! Perfect for foodies. Fresh ingredients and great presentation I had an onion oven appetizer with melted cheese it was a combination of an onion French soup and a queso fundido. So Good. Then I had a risotto and was just cook perfect. If you are looking for traditional Mexican food this is not the place but for me the fusion with French and Mexican was just perfect.
The restaurant is small and is located in the trendy neighborhood of Roma. Ask to sit outside if is a nice night.

After hearing about Maximo Bistrot for years, I knew I needed to try it. I expected our meal to be good, and it was. Everything we were served was delicious. I also expected it to be expensive, and it was that as well. I have eaten some fantastic meals in Mexico and I always came away feeling that even the most expensive ones were a good value. I didn’t feel the same way here as I honestly think it’s overpriced.

The restaurant was really noisy, and it’s not necessarily their fault. The people at the table next to us were so ridiculously loud (we were outside) my husband and I could not even have a conversation, which definitely prevented us from totally enjoying a beautiful, elegantly served meal.
