Con todo y la reservación nos hicieron esperar casi una hora.
La comida nada especial para lo carísimo que está. Super corriente y “wannabe”

The food was exceptional and extremely fresh. I enjoyed the ambiance and service immensely. Upon leaving, the manager who was watching our tables recommended where we should go after for the night with cocktails, and her recommendation was spot on! Although it is a busy and high class restaurant we didn’t feel rushed at the end when we were sipping mezcal and rather felt invited to stay and prolong our dinner. We didn’t tell them it was a present to go here for my birthday 2 days prior, and yet they overheard and brought out a slice of cheesecake with a candle. Overall phenomenal food, outstanding service and beautiful little restaurant to experience.

Todo estuvo excelente pero la persona que recibe y asigna las mesas me parece bastante despota y con mala cara.

Great spot for a Sunday lunch al fresco. We did the tasting menu and each course was fantastic. As great as the fish was, the suckling pig took it to another level. The pairings were nice, but I opt to order a bottle or 2 from their nice list. A+

Great food in a very pretty street in Roma however I felt rushed in the restaurant which isn’t common for a place of this category. Waiters were friendly but not very attentive.

Underwhelmed. I was hoping for a larger influence of Mexican flavors. Leans heavily French - what’s disappointing is that it tastes just like a meal I could have easily had in NYC (at NYC prices)

The food was great, but I left the place and still felt hungry. It was kind of expensive for the little portions we got on each course

This service was insulting. The kind that makes your skin crawl and has the potential to ruin your whole evening.

I took my parents here and the waiter snatched the plate away from my dad before he had even finished his food. The sommelier said to my mum “you can’t afford this”, they brought out multiple dishes at once and RUSHED us through the whole evening. Worst dining experience ever. Avoid at all costs.

Had heard rave reviews of Màximo Bistrot. Started with the cebolla cocida en suero and was outstanding, but the following dishes were disappointments, the experience quickly diluted. Overrated restaurant. Once again it proves (in my opinion) that these “Best Restaurant” lists are only chefs helping themselves.

Buen servicio, buen ambiente para cenar en pareja. Tenía mucha expectativa del sabor y por el precio que tiene, me dejó con regular experiencia.
Quise pagar con AMEX y dicen que no hay sistema, creo que lo inventaron.

Highly recommend!

Restaurant is cozy and on a neighborhood street corner. Has outside tables as well. The food was excellent and the overall vibe was that of a small hip bistro. Would highly recommend.

Nice food but severely overpriced considering the portions are tiny - for a grilled octopus dish costing over 400 pesos I got one tentacle. Then asking if we want water without revealing that they would be charging 90 pesos for the privilege is taking the p**s. You can eat a lot more innovative cuisine in Mexico City for a lot less.
