This s my 3rd visit to Maximo Bistrot one of my favorite places in Mexico City.
It was the first time that chef Eduardo García was not there, as he used to prepare every dish that left the kitchen, and it was noticeable, food was good but lacked that extra magic touch that he puts on it.

It was a little disappointing, mostly with the sea food dishes (tostada de cangrejo moro y ceviche de pulpo) they didn’t had the extra punch. Don’t get me wrong food was very good but some dishes lacked the greatness that i know they can have. Maybe first time comers won’t even notice, but this place used to be a one man show in the kitchen, i know that can’t last forever, but that doesn’t mean I won’t miss it.

The food here is just okay. The service was annoying and a bit rude. We initially ordered cocktails, wine, and 4 dishes to share. Our server seemed annoyed that we only ordered 4 items and said 'you did not order much'. I replied, 'yes I understand, we will continue ordering'. He said nothing and grabbed the menus and took them away abruptly. Our dinner was interrupted 6 times by people / children asking for money. They aggressively stood at our table with bowls in our faces asking for money. I realize the restaurant cannot control all of this but they did nothing to take care of their guests. When you are paying this much for a meal, I think it's reasonable to expect a relaxed environment. This was not the case. There are many other better options in CDMX. Skip this one.

Every dish was a delight, I would reccomend the Tortelloni and the Maracuya Merengue - perfectly balanced. Service at first was a little hecktic, maybe because we were sitting in the table closer to the kitchen and we could hear noise from the kitchen and the dining room. Everyone was very kind, specially a serveur from La Paz (loved her energy). Later on our request to be changed to an outside table was attended and the rest of the evening was perfect.

We have always depended on maximo bistrot for an excellent meal. This time it was just disappointing. The proportions have been so reduced they are now bite sized - something that works well for their degustation menu, but not when you are ordering a la carte. The service was also lacking in both attentiveness and energy.

We were very sad to see this downhill slide as this restaurant has always been our go to for a fine meal in a casual setting.

Second time here...service was very rushed... You could tell that the waiter had been encouraged to try to move customers through quickly. A couple of times they brought drinks or plates separately, so one of us had to sit there waiting for the other's dish/drink to arrive...definitely not fine service. It all felt rushed. Also I don't like tight seating layouts in fine dining. I dislike intensely when there some table right next to you listening to your conversation. Frankly I couldn't wait to leave so we could talk in comfort without the neighbors listening and the waiter bursting in our our conversations.

On our way to the restaurant, after acknowledging that the traffic was heavier than usual and we were definitely going to be late, the number to reach Maximo Bistrot was currently inactive due to a fallen tree branch on a nearby telephone line. So, without being able to properly communicate to the restaurant, our reservation was given up. We had arrived at 8PM, they had apologized and brought us to their upstairs bar for a cocktail while we waited for a new table. We were seated shortly after placing a drink order.

We sat on the outdoor patio. Overall dining experience was good. Food was very good. I’d highly recommend this restaurant.

Me encantó!! Pero dos observaciones:
Las raciones son muy pequeñas para el precio.
Las sillas incomodas, unos cojines no le vendría mal para permitir que los comensales estemos cómodos, de por si las mesas son pequeñas...al menos unos cojines lo harían sentirse a uno un poco mejor.
El sazón esta perfecto, el servicio de los meseros fenomenal.

We loved the food. The tasting menu was well balanced, imaginative, at times comfortingly familiar but with a twist (cebolla gratinada), at times exiting (soft-shell crab with mole verde and pilpil), but always tasty. Serving was a bit hurried. There was little time to savor the first dish when they brought the next.
Staff did not know their wines. The description provided was poor and biased. The markup was terrifying: $75 for a $15 bottle. Next time we will bring our own.
The place is pleasant enough but with a steady stream of traffic too near for comfort. The overall experience was good. The best part was undoubtedly the food.

We always enjoy dining at Maximo’s. We took an outside table in the corner. The wooden chairs and benches could be improved with some cushions as they were pretty uncomfortable. Otherwise our meal was excellent and service was great.

Fabulous meal! This was one of the best lunches I have had in ages. The flavors were amazing, and the service was outstanding. The staff members were all very attentive, but in a laid back and fun way. I liked the vibe of the place--simple, casual, and unfussy, but the food and drinks were top notch. I've been to 15 of the restaurants on the current Latin American Top 50, and this was, by far, my favorite. It truly outshines all of the others I've tried.

We have been here before about two years ago. We had an amazing experience then. This time we did the tasting menu and wine pairing. We asked about the menu and was told it is a surprise (however the table next to us they shared what it was when they asked later and they were able to change around some items). We said we will try a surprise, but my husband is allergic to beans of any kind. The second course was a bean tortilla with beans so we had to ask them to take it back. He said I thought you were kidding. We said we will try the menu but he can’t have beans if any kind due to an allergy how can that be kidding? With each course you expect the wine to come out relatively at the same time. Not this time, it was always late, in fact one dish we waited five minutes and then started to eat so it wouldn’t get cold and after we were done we got the wine. The service used to be great. The bass was way over cooked. The duck was the highlight of the meal and excellent along with the Mezcal sorbet. We went for lunch and it was the price of having lunch in NYC at over $250. It wasn’t worth it. Won’t be going back on our next visit to Mexico City.

No había lechón y fue una gran lastima. Hay mucho eco adentro del restaurante y unos de la mesa junto reían y hablaban muy fuerte provocando que no pudiéramos hablar muy bien.

Servicio muy acelerado y no nos sentimos exclusivos.

En general todo bien. El único comentario es que consideramos que el precio del menú degustación con maridaje es un poco elevado considerando los tiempos y la calidad de algunos de los vinos. Uno de ellos (Gamay) tenía problema de TCA, no debieron servirlo así.
