Best meal we had in San Miguel. Just don't conenkn Thursday as it’s burger night, unless that’s what you want to eat. The appetizers were amazing and the desserts incredible. Our server Juan was very attentive and helpful.

Every dish was amazing. Tuna tartare, burrata, Brussels sprouts, curried shrimp and scallop, risotto. Margaritas were good. Atmosphere was dimly lit and beautiful.

Our second trip to SMA and we knew we had to do The Restaurant again. It was so amazing the first time, and was just as amazing the second. Chef Masterton has done such an incredible job with his vision of this place. The attention...to detail, the romantic setting and the phenominal food make this one of our favorite places of anywhere we have been.More

We reserved a special table that was confirmed by the staff though when we arrived they had given the table to someone else. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a very silly, loud group which made for a challenging experience. The servers, food and atmosphere...were very good and I would certainly dine here again.More

It is a very nice courtyard setting but the food is just okay and very expensive for what you get.

Wonderful dinner spot. High quality food and service! We enjoyed a seasonal soup and our entree was slightly modified per our request. Most tasty risotto I have ever had! We felt the prices were very reasonable, especially given the quality. Good for couples, families, groups...of friends. Excellent service.More

The restaurant is mentioned in some guides as one of the best restaurants in the city, and this might be misleading as it is a nice trendy restaurant with simple food, but not a fine dining restaurant. On our evening there were a lot of...people and it was fun for people watching. The staff were friendly, but casual. The food was good, I had a tuna tartar as starter and then a regular burger, both were very good. The dessert was also good. Good drinks, I tried the margarita and it was good. Overall good trendy place with simple good food.More

Is our first time visiting San Miguel. We had recommendations of different restaurants and rooftops from friends and social media. However, after going to all of them (which they were excellent). “The restaurant” is by far our favorite in every level. The food, the service,...the ambiance is magnificent. Uriel from the bar, Aron and Beto were our waiters. They made us feel like they knew us forever.More

The food is excellent from flavor to presentation. The service is attentive and polite without being pushy. The atmosphere is romantic, with a mixed of rustic and contemporary. The wine selection is vast and well selected. The bartenders are amazingly talented and extremely attentive.

Superb! I have gone to The Restaurant for at least one dinner on every trip to San Miguel over the years. It's still my favorite for a special night out, knowing no matter what I order it will be delicious. I love the braised short...ribs and this time the shrimp cakes with spicy avocado relish as appetizer were great. You can never go wrong with dessert. It's all delicious.More

I’ve previously complimented the food but complained about the service here, so I feel duty-bound to say I had a lovely meal with beautiful service this evening. Hamburger Thursday lived up to the hype, my Azul burger was killer, and the service was outstanding.

very nice setting but food not good, my partner had the grilled pork chop, very fatty and tough. I had two starters, not a lot of flavor. The waiter ignored us. We went based on the reviews, big mistake. There are a lot better restaurants,...the prices were high based on quality and service.More
