You get what you pay for and I mean that in a good way. A local food connoisseur buddy of mine took me here and it didn’t disappoint. The atun tostadas were amazing and their house specialty split whole fish with red sauce on one...side and green sauce on the other was simply spectacular. Service was excellent. Tip: ask to be seated on the second floor for a great view while dining.More

Accidents happen. Tonight, our waiter at Entremar spilled a full bowl of caldo de camaron on my husband's lap. The soup went everywhere, soaking the tablecloth and splattering his pants, his shirt and his shoes. His pants (pictured) are most likely ruined. It was just...an accident, but the way the team handled it felt unprofessional. The waiter quickly switched out our table linens and gave my husband a glass of soda water and a napkin to blot the stains. Then he proceeded to deliver our entire meal to us as if nothing had happened. I don't work in the biz, but if I did something like that, I'd probably tell my manager or the host so that they could figure out how to best handle the situation, which by all accounts was a table-side disaster. For my husband, sitting in soup- and soda-soaked pants was unpleasant. For me, I couldn't erase the image of what had just happened (soup everywhere!). It also felt surreal that our waiter turned all his energy and attention into getting our full order served. The two of us were of the same mind: To cut our losses and go. In order to exit quickly and quietly, we asked to speak to the manager and told him that we preferred to go. I think he was puzzled about why we would leave an entire meal of uneaten food. We had already said twice that we preferred to leave but instead he offered us complementary desserts, which we politely declined. Then he sent us a round of drinks, which we again declined. It felt kind of weird to be stuck there while he kept offering us little make-goods. In my opinion, he should have just let us go, no questions asked. We finally left after paying a significantly adjusted tab for a meal we didn’t eat. I'm just bewildered by the team's inability to understand that having a bowl of soup dropped in your lap is a legitimate mood killer.More

We all hate this lockdown, and I am pretty sure restaurants are the ones suffering the most, but restaurants like Entremar, they are still open for delivery or take out, and yesterday we ordered food from this place, the tostadas de atun, the Grilled Octopus...were the best, I consider myself a grilled octupus taster, always trying to find the best, and this one here is the best so far in Mexico. Also, the service they offered was incredible, they were very thankful, and we do appreciate when you get really good food, and also a very service. In the past I tried the Rockefeller Oysters (ostiones) and they were very good!!More

Great restaurant. This is the sister restaurant for Contramar in Condensa and is more of an “old school” seafood/fish restaurant. Some great dishes, excellent service, great location. The grilled whole fish was fantastic.

I came across this place on yelp and when we arrived I didn't even know it was a sister restaurant of Contramar, in condesa. Same great menu, service and atmosphere. If not, even better. Love the upstairs dining setup with a view of the park...outside. I'd highly recommend the pulpo tostadas and the split filet as an entree (comes with 2 different sauces on each half of the filet). These will not disappoint. Drink recommendations, I'd recommend a traditional carajillo. Licor 43 and a shot of espresso shaken in a martini maker. It's such a traditional drink and a great desert since it's sweet. I'd love to put a note for our waiter, Jose Huicab. He did an amazing job with suggesting items to us and explaining in English.. if you're able to request him as your waiter, definitely do it. Thanks again Jose. If you're in Polanco and want to try the amazing dishes, same as contramar! This is the spot! I'll be back soonMore

The place is ok, really loud in my opinion and they do not respect social distancing nor cleaning protocols. On the other hand the food is good but worst part is the waiters demanding the tip... really disappointing. Few words: nothing extraordinary, find somewhere else...to eatMore

Entremar is a sister of the acclaimed Contramar restaurant. It has the same menu and prices. We started with an order octopus tostadas and had the Pescado a la talla, the house specialty whole grilled fish opened, home made sauce Contramar (half with red chilli...adobo rub and half with parsley rub). Finished off with a cheesecake flan. Best, and most expensive meal we had during an 8 day stay in Mexico City. Can't wait to go back.More

Entremar is a well-known seafood restaurant in the Polanco neighborhood of Mexico City. It has great service from the wait staff; we never were lacking anything. They (Roberto and Carlos) were very attentive. I had a clam chowder which was excellent and brought back wonderful...childhood memories. My main course was the Shrimp al tequila with rice and it was cooked to perfection. My companion and I shared two desserts; a scrumptious strawberry cream merengue and a delicious fig cheesecake. I also had an after-dinner carajillo which was one of the best ever. I had read in several reviews that that the noise level is high, and that is true. The upstairs dining area was loud due to bad acoustics and it was full , but that certainly did not distract us from an enjoyable meal. There were quite a few children also. It is best to make a reservation to avoid a long wait. I´m sure we will return again!More

Beautiful view of the park, good service, very fresh fish. It would be great if there were a few more offerings for non fish eaters. Make sure to get a table by the upstairs balcony.

This was our first trip to Mexico City. We looked forward to eating at Entremar. The food and service were very good, but nothing jumped out at us and said WOW! If anything was a surprisingly good, it was the house white wine - a...Chardonnay from northern Mexico.More

Went for lunch and the place was packed with business meetings. Specialized in fish with different mexican recipes and also “a la brasa”. Good service, good quality, but a little expensive. Even though there were manu waiters, we did have to wait a lot for...our orders.More

We mistakenly went for dinner. The restaurant closes at 9 so the last seating is at 730 which may be too early for a lot of diners. It was perfectly acceptable to us but others may prefer a late lunch instead. The restaurant specializes in...seafood from shellfish platters to grilled whole fish so you need to be a fish lover. The decor is white, the tables and chairs are wooden and the walls have some minimal adornments. Because there is nothing on the floors, it is a noisy place. However, the waiters are wonderful and the whole place has a very convivial air. We shared all our dishes and because we were four, we had a decent sampling which included sashimi tuna tostadas, el pastor fish tacos, green and watercress salads which were unremarkable, and a whole fish, made in Contramar style. (The owners also own another restaurant in Roma Norte called Contramar and this style of making the fish includes delicious green and red sauces over a simply grilled whole fish.) I found everything good or very good, except for the whole fish which was truly excellent. We also had two desserts, a deliciously rich chocolate cake and a fig cake which I did not taste but which my table mates raved about. All in all, a little bit noisy for my taste but if you can stand it, the restaurant has 5 star quality.More

We had the "famous" two sauce fish. Fish was fresh and it was nice, nothing more. It was served on its own, nothing to accompany it. We had pleasant starters and a nice half bottle of white wine. It was pleasant. Nothing more than that....I paid C$150 for two. Wildly expensive for what it was. On top of this, they have this weird booking rule that they want you to have dinner and be out before 8 pm (or maybe it was 7). We ran to get there on time (not having eaten all afternoon to make space for this early dinner...) and then found the place empty. We were back on the street 7:15. Totally weird and not very charming. You can do better than go here.More

Overall, the seafood is well done and there's great selection. We went there two times during our 8-day visit to Mexico City. The services was good - waiters were checking in to make sure all was well. I would say the only thing is that...food came out so quickly and I did feel a bit rushed both times I was there.More

My husband and I came here for the last night of our Mexico City vacation and we're sorely disappointed. Although we arrived to that a reservation at 5:45 p.m., we were promptly seated and that's when the problems began. Just as we began to look...at the menu a waiter appeared and asked what we wanted to drink. We told him we needed a few minutes and he proceeded to stand and breathe down our necks as we looked at the wine menu. After we ordered drinks, we told the waiter we needed a few minutes to decide on appetizers. Our waiter was intolerable - he pushed us to order appetizers and then started pressuring us and to ordering the grilled octopus and whole fish, the priciest items in restaurant. We wanted to spend a few minutes with the menu but they wouldn't allow it, they just stood at our table side waiting, or they would leave and come back in 45 seconds. The most awkward and uncomfortable meal I've ever had. While I was in the restroom, my husband reported that they started clearing the table before he was done. Although there were empty tables all around us, we felt like we were trying to flip the table in 20 minutes. At the very end, we left leaving a paltry tip in the waiter asked us to leave more. They pressured the tables around us into ordering the $50 whole grilled fish so I guess this "sales" strategy working for them. Disgusting.More
