This is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at and I live in New York City. We had a group of 22 (!) people and the service was flawless. We started with delicious drinks - very unique and beautiful looking. We got 4 different salsas, and guacamole for the table. Then we had 4 appetizers served to each of us individually - elote, ceviche, seared ahi, pork egg roll. I had the pozole soup with seafood for my main entree - delicious! The deserts were also fantastic. Including drinks, tip, everything, it was $75 US per person. Steep for Mexico City, but compared to NYC, an absolute steal.

A beautifully modern interior is a great setting for modern interpretations of classic Mexican dishers. Service was good, and we sat upstairs, with a view of the neighborhood. Excellent cocktails, and food was good in flavor, and unusually artistic presentations.

We didn’t like the decor. The restaurant overall disappointed us. For us, the food was plain. Maybe we went there with high expectations after reading Chef Ortiz bio and some of the reviews. The place is market as a culinary Mexican restaurant and while the dishes are server quite graciously, the food lacks of flavor. We shared the ceviche and I had the duck in mole sauce. This last one was extremely dry while the ceviche was unremarkable. Dessert was the only thing memorable from the menu. Overall, place is average and forgettable; except for the bill. For the prices you should get spectacular.

Knowing Martha Ortiz since the 90' .She finally set the restaurant which speak for itself..
The kitchen runs pretty well and the well trained staff moves very smoth..
Excelent Menu.very good wine list ( all the best Mexican Wines are there / expensive but they have all the good one's)
Details play an important role../ Salsas a very good variety..
Located in the best area in Polanco.A must..

Fancy restaurent with cheap food and stressed services. The price are high and they seems to give you fancy mexicain food but it's not. It's tottaly over price and it's really not an honnest restaurent. Trust me, there is many better restaurents in Mexico city than this one.
