Perfect. Every. Time. We were pre theater and our wonderful waiter asked us. Do you trust me? We had a delicious meal, didn’t feel rushed, and made it to our seats just in time.

Excellent dinner on new year’s eve. Incredible food and excellent service. Mariachi band was playing but wasn’t too loud, our 14 month old even had an amazing time. We will definitely be back, special occasion or not.

We’ve been to Topolobampo on special occasions almost annually for well over 20 years, and never had less than a 5-Star experience. The decor is beautiful but tasteful, understated. The service is impeccable, formal if you’d like, less so if you prefer. The plate presentations are dramatic but not over the top. The cocktails and wine pairings are excellent. The food is just wonderful, better than many other world class tasting menus we’ve experienced where presentations seem to overshadow taste. And finally, the sauces at Topolobampo are otherworldly, moles, pipian, tomato/bacalao, pasilla chile, etc. - it’s would be tempting to lick the plate clean, fortunately they enable us with fresh tortillas.

I was concerned at recent reviews stating Topolobampo is inflexible with their menus? First, many tasting menu restaurants are indeed inflexible, Topolobampo has always allowed us to alter our menu if there was a course we didn’t want. And they did so again last night, at the end of 2017. I can only assume the reviews citing inflexibility were hoping to make major changes, even alacarte - no tasting menu caliber restaurant will allow that.

Thanks again to Topolobampo for a wonderful experience, we’ve never been disappointed in any way.

We celebrated my 32nd birthday here with a group of 6. It was a phenomenal way to spend an evening, and I really enjoyed all the courses on my tasting menu! Well done, Topolo!!

Best meal I have ever had... The pre-Colombian tasting menu was an interesting and inspiring trip to another time and place. A perfect anniversary celebration!

As alway, our dining experience was first-rate. We went during the holidays for lunch. Two of us had the tasting menu paired with wines. Wines complimented the meal selections superbly . Food quality is always outstanding and preparation aleYs is creative and tasty.

The food was delicious, but the service was quite slow (considering this was at lunch with the prix fixed supposedly in 60 minutes -it was more like 90 minutes). But, if you have the time, the food and margarita’s are yumm!

The small-plate tasting menu was a stunning surprise - we didn't realize the restaurant had dropped its excellent traditional dinner selections. It was stunning because the tasting selections and wine pairings were traditional yet inventive, authentic yet original, and completely successful in every way. The entire meal was a superb experience without flaw.
