Warned by the concierge of our hotel that the reservation might be "lost" I braced myself for arguments - it wasn't but Maximo Bistrot clearly suffers from the too-hot-syndrome - waiters as blanco as the white washed walls with zilch personality or sense of hospitality make you feel you should me thankful to be in their presence. The food is... More

This spot is luscious, warm, inviting and has a sumptuously curated menu of Nuvo Classic Mexican fare- very tastefully done. This is a great spot for a romantic dinner or a cozy dinner with friends. The experience feels as inviting as being in a friend's home or a corner French bistro- with the gastronomic savvy and authentic of Mexico City's... More

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. Everything from the delicious cocktails, to the dessert were wonderful. We were 4 at our party and everybody loved it. Great service too. Definetely recommended; it's a small place so make sure you make reservations.

We enjoyed a lunch at Maximo Bistrot and found all of the dishes to be well made and beautifully presented. Highlights for us were a fish tortilla starter and the fish of the day. Excellent service and a beautiful neighborhood to explore after make this an ideal spot for lunch.

My wife and I had dinner here the other night and were blown away. Service and atmosphere were great and the food was wonderfully on point. The morel ragu was wonderful, and my wife loved the suckling pig - enough that she mentioned it as her new culinary dragon, if you will. The wine list was strong with a good... More

This is a great restaurant. I had dinner with my daughters while vacationing in Mexico City. Food was served family style in smaller portions so we are able to have a very nice variety. Waiters were very helpful in explaining menu, service was excellent. Price was very reasonable. Good wine selection.

we had heard about this place but knew very little and we just lobbed on the doorstep and begged for a table. Fortunately they said we could - as long as we left 90 mins later. I'm so glad we tried! A beautiful mix of french and mexican food. We had a range of the starters - Beef Tartare -... More

The dinner was lovely from the eggplant dip to a beet salad to the suckling pig. Fresh and inventive. My husband thought the lemon pie too inventive:)

If you go to Mexico City you must visit this place. Forget the fanciest places like Pujol or Biko (ok don't forget about them but you know what I mean). This is THE place to eat in Mexico City. The menu is ecclectic and changes every day, the setting is quirky and intimate and once you taste the first dish... More

This was a nice restaurant but because it was so hyped up by everyone I had talked to and everything I had read that it didn't meet our expectations. We went for our 4 year anniversary and the highlights were a salad we had and the creme brulee with flowers on top. The lobster wasn't very interesting and we had... More
