Went to Quintonil for an Anniversary dinner, we chose the summer tasting menu. The food was superb, well presented (although we prefer white china) and.every course was delicious.
The restaurant is very noisy, the service average for a top rated restaurant as this one. The staff did not seem as they knew what they were doing. Compared with the service at Pujol the service here was very poor

Seeing as we were travelling, my phone wasn't working, which meant I was unable to receive the call to confirm our booking (emails would be better on this occasion) thus having them give away our table. But when we arrived (I was extremely upset that our booking was no more) they tried their hardest to get us in, and thankfully this was made a reality. So thankful. The food was mind blowing and the restaurants interior was beautiful. Minimal yet it made a statement. From the palate cleanser right through to the desserts, I was in awe. The flavours took me to my happy place and this experience will forever be remembered. I much preferred this restaurant to Pujol too (just saying). The wait staff were very accommodating and their English was superb. It's very clear why this restaurant is in the top 20 of the world. Outstanding experience.

This is a high-end Mexican restaurant located at one of the best areas in Mexico City. The food is great, the place is great and the service is amazing. Its modern Mexican cuisine is spectacular and everything in the menu is delicious.

Overall the food was super tasty. Our table ordered a bunch of different apps to start. The ones i enjoyed most were: avocado escamole, raw shrimp in zucchini flower, avocado risotto. The softshell crab tostada app was very nicely presented but i found that the flavor and texture of the meat was not the best. For main, we ordered roast chicken in mole, wagyu beef, and turkey. The roast chicken was out of this world! Moist and flavorful, and the mole had an amazing kick. The wagyu was disappointing - it was overcooked and the texture was definitely not wagyu. It had no fat whatsoever. The turkey was nothing to write about. Desserts were so-so. Chocolate pot is just a molten cake served in a small pot. Despite inconsistencies in the quality of some the dishes, i would totally go back for the apps and the chicken. The drinks are great. Order the agua de quintonil (orange mescal mohito).

Fantastic modern take on traditional Mexican cuisine. Presentation, ambience, service, ingredients, care in preparation were all first rate and worthy of it's worlds top 50 restaurant designation.
