Excelente comida y servicio. Poniendo en alto a Mexico.
Amazing food and service! Complementary app and dessert for my fiance's birthday and a visit from the chef.
Tonight we got the 6 course tasting menu and left very satisfied and really impressed with the level of thought and detail put into each bite of food we had. I highly recommend the tasting menu. Service was fantastic. I really like how you don’t know what each course is until it arrives in front of you. They give you a general outline - something light, then a soup, then fish, two proteins, and dessert. I think the highlight of the meal for me was the seafood course - it was a piece of lobster served over a *corn* risotto that was truly special and unique. Came with two little pieces of kumquat that added an unexpected sweetness and tartness but really made the dish stand out. These kinds of details made the entire meal such a pleasant experience. Will definitely return!
I can't say enough about Mexique and our exceptional dinner experience. The food was outstanding and plated as a pieces of art. Some of the best Sangria we have ever had.
Great service, amazing food, perfect ambiance
Great atmosphere and service. The food was absolutely delicious - the lamb and chocolate torte are a must try.
Beautiful presentations, very helpful and attentive servers, wonderful and uniquely flavored food. This was our second visit, and we will definitely return.
The food was generally interesting and different at Mexique. It was a little hit or miss in that one of us had an amazing meal that was well prepared and creative while another in our party had a meal that was a bit salty and pretty basic. It is also worth noting that there are no cocktails here but there is a decent sangria, wine and beer selection so just know that going in. Unfortunately the service wasn't great. Our waiter didn't put our order in until pretty late so there was a long wait between appetizers and entrees and in fact our waiter didn't address this so the busboy ended up letting us know the status and make sure we were comfortable.
One of the best meals with the best service I have had in a long time. It was absolutely fabulous. Highly recommend it!
Another excellent meal at Mexique! I have been going there for a decade and have never had a meal less than superb.The complementary pate was smooth and delicious. The ceviche was simply shrimp with a few minor adornments but in a tangy, light red sauce, yet quite tasty; so much so we asked for a spoon to scoop up every last drop. The lamb, the duck and the trout were all first rate. The lamb was prepared two ways- three beautiful chops and a somewhat spicy mix of chopped lamb and sauce on a little bit of carb the two complemented one another perfectly yielding a delightful duo of meat and extra flavor. The duck is a signature dish and was also prepared in more than one way. I think I will order that next time. The fish was in a corn husk and was more of a comfort dish, soft and warm. With it came a cylinder of squash also full of flavor. Our desert choice was rice pudding, again done with a complexity that is Mexique's hallmark, blackberries and all. I am already looking forward to my next meal there. It is not inexpensive but for a quality night out, it is consistently a great place to go.
Delicious food with delicate, complex flavors. Butternut squash soup is rich and dense. Ceviche is spicy hot but not overly so. Chile relleno is a veggie treat and the desserts are scrumptious. Carne Assad’s is a little too tough, red and undercooked for my taste but others may appreciate it more. Have been here several times and have never been disappointed. Very kind and genuine staff, an upscale casual atmosphere and really well conceived and well prepared food. A favorite in Chicago.
It was a wonderful experience - the food is fantastic - will definitely go back. A bit on the pricey side but well worth it - exceptional - loved every bite
Tasting menu was insanely delicious!
small butternut squash soup, small ceviche, small pescado, small chile relleno, small pork belly, small asada, arroz con leche, small apple tart. Finished dinner still feeling hungry.
This was one of the best meals I have ever had. The menu and flavors were amazing. Our waitress Janet was delightful. We can’t wait to schedule our next meal here. Kudos to Chef Carlos.
Great hostess, very hospitable
very slow service, food was good once it arrived 45 minutes later
service staff good spiel on food. not educated on bar items i.e. what is port?
For a small menu'd,under 100 seated restaurant, why so chaotic?
Incredible experience. The food was amazing, I highly recommend the steak tartare for an appetizer and the quesadilla negra. The Mar y Tierra was delicious as an entree.
The service was second to none. Our server Raul was super friendly and informative about the different plates.
Excellent, everything from service to selections. Delicious!
Our dinner was fantastic at Mexique. It was Restaurant Week and also my husband's birthday. We both had the Restaurant Week menu and everything was delicious and wonderful prepared and presented. The service was excellent as well. All the servers were very attentive and knowledgable about the dishes and the wines.
I became a fan of Carlos Gaytan when he appeared on Top Chef and have been wanting to try Mexique ever since. We finally got the chance and We will definitely return!
We went to Mexique for dinner during Restaurant Week and were not disappointed. My friend and I both tried the entire restaurant menu (photos are attached). Four courses did not disappoint. The service was courteous and friendly. When I asked about the sangria I was given a tasting. Overall, everything was delicious. I loved the butternut squash soup, the carne asada and the salmon and the rice dessert over the apple pie. I plan to go back for the $88 tasting menu.
