Very late seating us. Had to grab someone to get water and any service to start. Some dishes were great, others were a little off (over cooked proteins). Very cold room once they turned the burners off in the kitchen, we were basically freezing for our final courses.

Interesting restaurant, interesting tasting menu. Very personal and attentive service from the head staff member. I was impressed.
The restaurant is very noisy so if you are looking for a relaxed dinner with conversation it would be a challenge to compete with the noise.

Most of the food was very good. The plates were beautifully presented. We had an issue with one seafood dish but once brought to the attention of the waitstaff they went out of their way to rectify and compensate for the issue. The food and dining experience (on the whole) was definitely above average, as was the waitstaff.

Everything was super salty.
Had the tasting menu with the wine-pairing.
The Mexican wines were good, the food - not so much.
The ambiance is small and cluttered but not in a cozy kind of way.

Can't recommend.

Zero. Nada. Nothing. That is what we received after fifteen minutes of being seated in a very small, not very busy restaurant. No water, no attention- nothing. The only attention we received was as after we got up to leave. Will not be giving this place a second chance. Save your money for a good place.

While we enjoyed our visit (most other highly rated restaurants were closed over the holidays) the food was uneven in quality: a perfect lentil soup, great interesting cocktails, wonderful yellow corn dish with crunchy homini, the duck was tasty but chewy, the monochromatic veggie course was a miss in taste and presentation. Overall they mean very well but the last level of execution was missing.

As a visiting chef from San Francisco , I was extremely excited to lunch at Pehua. I'd heard plenty of recommendations and after reading the menu exploring the history, I had extremely high hopes. Lunch services can be rather difficult in restaurants like this, so I kept that in mind as I walked in around 1 PM on Wednesday and was met by a very friendly floor manager who ended up being the highlight of my experience at Pehua (don't recall her name but she was young, wore glasses, slightly freckly). I ordered the chefs tasting menu and beverage pairing which came out to be about $100 US and was first greeted with a beverage that was set down before me by a server who promptly walked away, offering no explanation as to what I was drinking or why I was drinking it. The drink was great and went well the a solid opener; pulque and strawberry with pink peppercorn. Though the meal flowed well and was timed fairly well, it was all down hill after the first taste. The Uni was clearly not fresh and was paired with a gooey guava sauce that made no sense in conjunction with a powdered that tasted like straight up raw maseca. The beef stew which was touted to have an intense 16 hour broth was under-seasoned, boring and came with a variety of undressed and under cooked vegetables. The dish deemed "monochromatic" indeed lived up to its name (raw yellow beet, yellow squash, and a saffron-lime broth) but was yet again let down by under seasoned and naked food. I was left to consume this watery dish with only a fork, and half way through was finally greeted by the flustered floor manager who apologized for her delay, and gave me a description of the dish along with, finally, the wine and a small spoon. The esquites and taco were good interpretations of classics, served piping hot, well seasoned and fairly interesting, but nothing more glamorous.
Pehua under delivered on most notes and lacked the finesse and intrigue of so much other food in Mexico City. A real let down.

Excellent restaurant showcasing Mexican food with a creative flare. Only negative was the time: we were the only party when we sat down and it took two hours even though we ordered from the a la carte menu (starters and main entre). I'm not sure how long the full tasting/pairing menu would take. For a business meal two hours was a bit long. But to end on a high note: the food was EXCELLENT and I would go back for a special occasion.

This was seriously one of the worst dining experiences I have had in Mexico in 26 years. From the service to the menú to the actual food it was bad to worse to mind numbingly horrible! Thank goodness I was with good friends and the company was what counted because foodie wise it was horrendous.

The service was just really really disorganized and not attentive or on control. I also booked my table months ago, and they tried to foist me off onto one of their outdoor tables which is not at all nice. A few dishes were pretty good, none of the food was bad. The prices were very fair. The staff seemed nice, but like they need a general manager with front of house experience managing a dining room. I wish them success, but even other diners were complaining about service, and I could see dirty plates left in front of other diners for long periods...

While the food was, for the most part, spectacular, the pork the waiter recommended was unevenly cooked and the pumpkin sauce was flat. But the braised tongue was heavenly, as were the beef cheek tacos. Although the service is meant to feel like a beeline of efficiency and spectacle - sauces poured out of white teapots by one of the two head waiters who describe each meal - it also felt frantic and left this diner waiting for a cocktail list after asking for one twice to each lead waiter. I left thirstier that I normally am after dinner - no follow up cocktail, or digestive, or water after finishing the bottle I ordered, but I was here for the food and it was the star of the show!

I'm from Amsterdam Holanda. My boyfriend took me to Pehua as a birthday present during our holiday in Mexico. We had the nine course menu with pairing and we absolutely loved it! It was authentic Mexican food with a modern twist. There were beautiful flavors in some of the dishes that we had never tasted before. We especially liked their take on esquites, their beef taco and the lemon sorbet with chicatana ant. The different kinds of drinks (from a superb cocktail to great glasses of wine) we got with every course, matched perfectly.

We had a great time. Highly recommended

Tasting menu was excellent and innovative. Sometimes a little too much so but that did not taint the overall experience at all. One suggestion: the tasting menu is very long - which is great; but maybe it would be a good idea to make the portions a bit smaller. Almost everyone who had the menu did not manage to finish all their dishes - which is a shame because it is really good!
BTW if it matters to you: tasting menu was also really good value!

The cuisine and great attention to detail was truly outstanding at Pehüa! Some of our favourite dishes were the esquites, chilli en nogada and pato con chichillo! Our server was kind enough to guide us through the menu and point out some of his favourites. The mezcal selection is truly a must try and they will also walk you through the various selections available by bringing a bottle to the table. The menu is extensive so would suggest perhaps going the tasting menu route if you are hungry!

Excelente atención y el sabor de la comida es impecable, sin embargo, dependes mucho en la recomendación del Chef para saber qué ordenar ya que es difícil imaginar el gusto del platillo o el cocktail por los ingredientes que salen fuera de lo común. En nuestro caso todo fue una experiencia agradable, solo era complicado explicarle a nuestra acompañante extranjera.
