We were here a year ago. Perfect. Tonight, the arrogant juvenile host tried on a cold drizzly night to stick us outside, then when I protested, offered an inside table for 90 min. No sense of welcome. Place speedy like a production line. The food...More

A friend had recommended this place to me and I was able to get a table as walk-in on a recent Sunday afternoon. It was to be my one big, blow-out, expensive meal while I was in the city. I ordered the tasting menu, figuring...More

I have been here a good deal of times over the years, the food is still pretty good but it's not amazing anymore. I believe they're over priced and over hyped. It's not worth the reservation hassle.

The atmosphere is great. Have a drink upstairs that is cozy and stop there. We waited 2 hours to get a table. We checked the expensive menu. The burrata with salmon does not have salmon anymore but costs the same. The ceviche de pulpo has...More

While the food was delicious, the service at Maximo Bistrot was, by very far, the worst I have experimented in one year of leaving in Mexico City and in years of trying top restaurants in various countries around the world. We arrived at Maximo about...More

This small, casual restaurant is a delight. Each dish was excellent – ‘new Mexican’ with French sensibility. For some reason, the waiter brought us an extra dish to try. Who’s complaining? A glass of wine was courteously split. Excellent value and highly recommended.

Wonderful Mexican fusion cuisine and very well priced. Three of us with apps, main courses, a cocktail and glass of wine each plus shared dessert came under USD50 each. I'm a culinary educator and I give this a thumbs up!!!

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch
