Comme à Paris...

I was amazed to see how well replicated the Pied de Cochon was in Mexico City compared to its original version in Paris. There is great attention to detail in all aspects from the decoration to the training of the staff. The food is very consistent from the snails to delicious scallops… The... read more

Excellent Ambiance, excellent french Bistro feeling, and very good food with an attentive old style service. Tried the chef suggestions and was a nicely balanced meal with great presentation and awesome taste. Great option for the undecided guest with a big variety of options. Would recommended any day

If it wouldn't have been for the raw fish bar and the wine selection, it would have been a complete disaster. The onion soup (in a french restaurant...) was just nauseating the pied de cochon (in a restaurant with the same name) just overcooked without any taste and ... wrong.

I went to this place with no reference at all just because it was open all night. The service was good and fast. The wine list is huge, very. The food was delicious, including the dessert. The price is maybe a bit high, but you expect something like that when you arrive.

It used to be very good. Rude waiters, slow and cold food. Even the captain was rude, I woud not go again in a long time. For those prices they could do better

Very expensive, very classy, excellent French and sea food. If you need to impress a visitor this is the place to go right in a hotel of the very fashionable Polanco area.

This place offers a very decent french food. However it is very expensive compared to the quality it offers (you are looking at an average check of 70-100 USD per person). The service is good, though you might feel observed all the time and don't realise who your waiter is at the end. The wine list is more like encyclopaedia.... More

Very fancy place. The food is great and the environment is elegant. You can find celebrities every time you go and the area is fantastic. Good prices and good food.

I often come here for business meals where food has been consistently good and service quite fine although a bit slow. This week I tried the suckling pig, the smallest portion of 200 grams, on lentils. It was really good. My fish soup was lukewarm though so I didn't like it very much.

I had great expectations when I made reservations because I heard a lot of good things about this place. Maybe my imagination went too far because I was not impressed. I liked the place, they have a nice terrace and and when you can see the glass fridge showing off tasty selfish on your way to take your sit. Staff... More
