My good friend and I were on vacation in Mexico City, and Pehua was recommended by our hotel concierge. We were looking for something more traditional/authentic Mexican, and this was perfect! The food was delicious (soft shell crab was our favorite!), and our waitress was amazing. We ordered the tasting menu with the pairings, and she took the time to explain all the dishes and the pairings. I have friends who are visiting soon, so I will be sure to recommend the restaurant to them!

Wine list is lacking as well is the cocktail list.
Many dishes were lacking flavor.
The suckling pig was cold and the plate was warm.
One person had a severely undercooked piece of fish.
Drink orders were messed up a few times.
Very disappointed in the tasting menu.

ES UN RESTAURANTE CON TOQUE CASUAL, EN DONDE SU COCINA ES EXCEPCIONAL, CON UN GRAN SABOR Y AROMA, ADEMAS SU MENU DE DEGUSTACION EXALTA A NUESTRA COMIDA TRADICIONAL MEXICANA. ADEMAS LA ATENCION ES INCREIBLE Y SE TIENE UN GRAN CONOCIMIENTO DE LO QUE ESTAN SIRVIENDO .
EL MARIDAJE TAMBIEN ES INCREIBLE . ES UN RESTAURANTE SUPER RECOMENDAVLE

The food was hit or miss, some dishes really delicious, others quite mediocre. The service, however, was bad for any restaurant, not to mention fine dining. We were served food without silverware, given wine without glasses. They asked several times what we wanted to order before we had been given menus. Throughout the course of the meal we interacted with easily 5-6 different servers but none of them seemed to be communicating with each other. Very disappointing overall experience.

I was there with my wife and sister in law. We were in town to visit Mexico City. PEHÜA was an amazing experience from the ambiance, food presentation, service, and food itself. The food is definitely not what you think about when you think about Mexican food. It’s New Mexican cuisine.

The service was very good, everyone was very friendly, and the place is nice, yet my experience did not meet my expectations. The food was ok, but not exquisite (though it was beautifully presented). It is not at the level of what the restaurant aims to be. We had a bottle of Cru Garage Sauvignon Blanc, which did not suite our taste at all.

Food was very good and the space is cool. Probably a great spot to have in the neighborhood if you live there. Service was great. Seemed under staffed. We seemed to spend a lot of time waiting, for table, for drinks, to give our order, for food. But the flavors were awesome and if we weren’t so exhausted when we arrived the leisurely pace might have been fine.

Very nice experience. For me it has better balanced menu compare to Pujol and less complicated than Quintonil. And more over price is more friendly than other 2 reataurantd and staffs are very passionate about their offerings. Definately one of top noch dining you can find in Mexico city. Overall strongly recommend. I will totally come back when they change their menu on July.

We had a wonderful time at PEHÜA. The service was fantastic, and the food and wine were delicious. The only problem was it was just too much! We did the tasting menu, and it was way more food than I’ve experienced on a tasting menu. We were so full by about 3/4 of the way through, we were having a hard time enjoying the last of the main dishes and desserts. I would definitely go back, but I wouldn’t do the tasting menu again until it’s a bit smaller.

The tasting menu was a transformative experience. Each meal was so well presented by the waitstaff, even as they spoke to us in English. We were impressed with the attentiveness of the waitstaff and how much joy and excitement they expressed over each dish. The enthusiasm was infectious, and the meals were innovative recreations of traditional dishes. With the exception of the esquites — a bland attempt to rethink the perfect street food — every dish was perfect. The food engaged the senses, and each of the other dishes were so balanced and brought out so many different flavors without becoming confused. The fourteen courses came over the span of about three hours. This dining experience will likely be our favorite for the decades to come.

Este restaurante fue una desepcion....lei una publicación y me dio curiosidad de conocerlo, realice la reservación a través de Open Table y primera vez que me solicitan una tarjeta de crédito en garantía en Mexico para una reservación, sin embargo di mis datos. Cuando llegamos, el restaurante casi vacio, el menu bastante reducido y difícil, la mesera que nos atendio no tenia idea de los ingredientes o preparación de los platos y a nuestras preguntas, se inventaba respuestas que después eran contradecidas por otro mesero.
Platos chicos de buen sabor a excepción del postre que de 3 opciones solo había dos, una de ellas bastante fea.
Al final al pago de la cuenta, un valor superior al promedio de restaurantes de cierto nivel en Mexico.
En definitiva, nada especial y nada recomendable.

La calidad de la comida excelente! Buena comida tradicional llevada a otro nivel por un buen Chef.

El Sevicio fue superior, sería porque éramos la única mesa?, no creo, el personal se ve bien capacitado y atento, ojalá sea igual con el restaurant cuando esté por lo menos al 50%.

La ventilación del comedor o mesas interiores no es buena y la pequeña terraza exterior es incómoda, sobretodo por los eventuales y desagradable olores a alcantarilla.

Excellent restaurant taking chances with adventurous food in the center of Mexico City. We got the beverage pairings and they didn’t manage to get the beverages paired in time for the food, but other than that the experience was amazing. We definitely recommend this as the best restaurant we had in the D.F. on our March trip. Delicious!

Tasting menu was great but it took nearly 3 hours. There was far too much time in between each dish, could've been an hour shorter. Nonetheless it was very enjoyable cuisine, just make sure to block out a lot of time to eat there if you do the tasting menu.

This place was fantastic. We loved our meal (did not do tasting menu). We also felt so warmly welcomed by the staff. Highlights include the special house bread with salsa, the duck and the lamb.
If I could change anything it would be the lighting and general atmosphere inside. It’s too bright and does not feel intimate or warm or special. Otherwise, I love this place and highly recommend it.

Muy buen servicio. Buena la comida, salvo que el Chef debe cuidar la temperatura en la que salen de sus platillos. Tanto la entrada como el principal salieron menos que tibios. Otro mal punto es el cabello en el pan. Pensamos que el Chef debe cuidar su tono de voz y lenguaje al llamarles la atención a su personal. Sus gritos de enojo se oyeron en todo el salón.

Excelent food but terrible service, it was so bad that we had to leave without ordering coffee or dessert as not only they served us the wrong food and had to flag servers but had to basically beg for wine list as well as for cocktails, they served drinks to half of table but had to wait for another 10 -15 min for the rest of our drink order to be delivered, forgot to set silverware for main course, cleared half of table leaving the empty and dirty plates behind right next to the one forgotten from the appetizers course, we waited and waited and finally had to request to finish clearing the table, no one poured wine or check if we needed a second bottle or if we were ok, etc, etc, and of course I had to request the check several times too. Is a shame as food is good and staff is polite but that don’t make up for the constant frustration, never before had I experienced such a poor service and lack of awareness in a restaurant is as if no one in staff has ever before wait tables or provided hospitality.

La comida es excelente pero el servicio es inexistente, tienes que pedir la carta de vinos 3 veces lo mismo con las bebidas, te preesionan para que ordenes la comida aun cuando los aperitivos no han sido ordenados y una vez más ( o tres) aun cuando no han sido servidos, trajeron las órdenes equivocadas a la mesa, tuvimos que pedir la cuenta más de dos veces nunca estuvo claro quien nos estaba sirviendo, hacer la lista de todo lo que estuvo mal me tomaría muchísimo tiempo, básicamente la falta de atención y servicio convirtió la cena completa en un chiste enorme, hubo tantos errores que pareciera que era una broma, una broma cara y frustrante. Nunca he estado tan avergonzado de sugerir un restaurante como lo estuve con Pehua

It's a fantastic and ambitious proposition that nevertheless fails to deliver consistently; there are fantastic dishes, followed by mediocre ones and then by some dishes that would've been great were it not for some missed detail. All would be forgiven were the price tag not so steep.

Loved my final meal in Mexico City at Pehua. This is a smaller restaurant but with bigger ambitions. Don't expect Pujol perfection (we went there, too), but the staff is exceptionally nice and the food is inventive and delicious. Tired that day, we opted out of the tasting menu and just had 1st and 2nd courses with a couple drinks, and everything that was served was great.

For the first time in my life I had to leave a nice restaurant without eating. The restaurant was 30 minutes late on our reservation. They had to do an unusual seating arrangement to get us seated at that time. After taking our food order (not drinks) we waited another 30 minutes and still nothing other than water. At that point I had no interest in paying for a multi course dinner. We got up to leave and the server and one host said “ok” when we explained why we were leaving. No apology.

As we exited the restaurant our server came up and sincerely apologized. She was very nice but we had already called our Uber and had no faith in the establishment. Maybe just a really bad night?

Footnote - Today a bottle of wine came to our hotel from Pehua which was a very nice gesture. I’ve upped my overall rating. The menu looked good and the restaurant patio was nice.

The food and service at Pehua were both top-notch and memorable. The staff was warm, accommodating, and made me feel both welcomed (as a guest) but also part of a wonderful extended family. From start to finish, I was impressed by the attention to detail, smooth service, and creative food inspired by local fresh ingredients. The chef and kitchen staff smoothly integrated cultural inspiration and traditions with modern culinary techniques to create a delicious and unexpected degustation menu (with interesting mostly local wine, beer, mezcal, and cocktail pairings). Highly recommended! As a visitor to Mexico City, this meal was a great introduction to the local upscale culinary scene. Thank you for the care and gracious warmth you showed me! I will definitely be back!
