This was a dinner I had looked forward to for a long time. The space is warm, inviting and intimate. To watch the ladies cook and plate the food was something I really enjoyed, it was obvious by the smiles on the women's faces that they too were enjoying the evening. Each course was magic, once tabled, one of the waiters spoke in great detail about the ingredients and history of each dish. My only 2 concerns; 1. I felt the food was delivered too quickly and also plates removed to quickly from the table. I really wish they had left all the plates and removed them all at one time once finished..... I was usually the last one finishing each course. 2. I also wish the wine list was a bit more varied, both in offerings and in price. There were only 2 or so offerings of red under or around 50, most hung it the 125 - 200 range. All in all it was an amazing evening. I will start saving my $ so I will hopefully be able to return! ( this place is not inexpensive by any means.)

$135 for pre fix menu isn’t a bad price. However, we didn’t even order a nice bottle of wine and the total price of our bill with tip was the same amount that we have paid at Michelin star restaurants. My husband had 3 margaritas and I had two glasses of wine. Food was good but lacking the extra special quality that would be expected for the price. Caviar and truffles (truffle actually could not be tasted even by itself) could not be tasted and enjoyed with the plate. Great ambiance and service was good.

This is the best Mexican restaurant in Dallas in my opinion. Its as much of an experience as it is a meal. The food is amazing and home cooked by the chef and his mom and aunt in an open kitchen. Each course is explained in detail. And service is perfect. I can’t wait to go again.

There were some fruit flies, and a few odd smells but overall it was a decent experience. I am not a very adventurous eater and I do not like very spicy food, so it was not my favorite restaurant.

Purepecha was amazing. Multiple times my date and I said “this my might be the best thing I’ve ever tasted.”

You can tell that each course is deliberately and passionately planned, and the chef does a great job explaining what you’re about to eat.

It felt like being invited into a Mexican grandmother’s kitchen. A truly intimate experience that’s unlike any other “restaurant” we’ve been to. The food is amazing, but it’s the ambience and cultural lessons that make you feel as if you did more than just dine.

One of the best dinners I've ever had in my life!! The food was absolutely amazing, and the service was perfect. It's definitely a little pricey, so I certainly won't be able to afford to go as much as I would like, but it is absolutely worth it for a special occasion! Highly, highly recommend.

There was way too much food! Portions should be reduced by 2/3 for 8 courses. As good as it was I felt I paid to feel uncomfortably full. The ambiance is nice and intimate but for the price you are paying needs to be more attention to detail.

Wow, wow, wow! The details, beauty and taste of the food were incredible. It was a lot of fun to watch the chef and his mother at work with their food. The service was impeccable. The only thing I might suggest to make the experience more fabulous is to not serve the courses so close to each other. There are eight courses and little time to rest between them.

Incredible culinary experience. Humble, down to earth approach to modern luxury cooking. The chef and his family create some of the best food i've had anywhere, and it just happens to be in the back room of a taco joint (which is also really, really good).

Well worth the cost for a special dinner or celebration. In line with "Chef's table" on Netflix.

Amazing food and flavor combinations. Portions could be a little smaller, because when it tastes this good it’s hard to exercise self control. Over 8 courses, if you can get ridiculously full. But the overall food flavors and dining experience are second to none.

Great experience! The intimacy of the dining room really makes for great theater. The chef does a great job plating and presenting the food providing a little backstory for each dish at the beginning of each course. The server team is very attentive and engaging. I thought the plates would be small but they really give you a healthy serving of each course. If I had to improve anything it would be the air conditioning but it's summer in Texas so I can't really fault the team. Worth every penny!

If you have food allergies, I absolutely would not recommend this restaurant. I listed my allergy in my reservation (gluten – celiac) and the host called me the day of our meal and assured me that "everything back there is always gluten free." Then when the dessert came out and it was a LITERAL PIECE OF CAKE, I thought something might be up. Sheesh. At that price and level of fine dining you would think the guy could at least talk to his chef before telling me the menu would be gluten free. Luckily I didn't eat the cake but I had already eaten the other courses that, based on my body's reaction for the next 24 hours, definitely had gluten in it. I called the next day to let them know and the same host insisted I was mistaken and barely apologized. Such a bummer – the atmosphere is so charming, the meal really was delicious, and I want this place to succeed. This is such a cool spot! Unfortunately they really shouldn't hire people who can't do something as simple as check the menu for allergen concerns, especially at $120 per plate before drink costs! Me and my husband coulda flown to ACTUAL Mexico and back for the price of our final bill and probably not gotten as sick as I did lol. I just can't recommend it based on my experience.

This restaurant is an interesting situation. Nothing here is awesome and nothing is terrible. The only negative I have is that the price point is a bit high but the amount of food is also more than average. I think the staff needs more experience, and the wine list needs to improve. The room temperature was a bit too hot, and trying to cool it down with a portable unit is not the right choice. Another comment I have is that they have two seatings, with a tight schedule. If you will delay the first seating, you can't rush the people out because you have the second seating waiting. At the end of the meal, I wanted to have a digistif and coffee, and they boldy told me "no" because they had to seat the second group. Based on the overall experience, and the price, I can't recommend this place
