A fantastic experience with incredible food, education about the history and trends of Mexican cuisine, and absolutely delicious food. Highly recommend for anyone with an appreciation for great food and a non pretentious atmosphere. I will be back!!
Love the atmosphere and the food — grandmother's kitchen and food if your grandmother were from Michoacan!! Taking traditional food to a new level. Expensive but worth it for the experience and food. Have been here before and somewhat different every time but always great.
The best dinner experience in town! I love this place.
This was a unique dining experience that I'm so happy I got to experience with my wife and friends. My wife made a remark toward the end of the meal that she was bummed to leave and be back in Dallas because it felt like we were in Mexico. I wanted to hug Abuela on our way out, but thought that would be inappropriate. Most dishes are things you can't get anywhere else in DFW if not all of Texas. The pheasant with Mole was my favorite, but it's difficult to choose a favorite. My wife loved the carnitas. I can't say enough about this experience. My only down side was that it was really warm in the room, but you're literally in the kitchen with them cooking, so it's hard to complain about that much. I highly recommend a meal here. My wife, friends and I will be talking about this meal for a long time.
Didn’t actually get to eat the food because of an emergency cancellation (quite literally in the emergency room) but was still charged $120 due to the ridiculous cancellation policy. This is why Dallas can’t have nice things. Needless to say I won’t be coming back...
This was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have had the pleasure of attending. The portions may look small, but are incredibly filling.
Such a great experience. Only caveat was that towards the end I became uncomfortably stuffed but that was me to blame because I ate everything in sight!
You are able to take home anything you chose not to eat.
Mom’s 50th birthday. Had a couple items on there that were not savory - grasshopper, etc. still good food, just needs to be your thing.
Such an amazing and intimate experience!
Their caldo and chile en nogada were lovely.
I wanted to like this place more but left a bit underwhelmed. The idea of the place is great, great chef, mamas cooking, prix fixe, limited seating, hidden away chef's table style experience. However, the service was fair and inexperienced ( niece and cute, at times annoying) , the chef never made eye contact with anyone in the room, no table visit, nothing. Mama was sweet after we approached her after watching her on her feet doing much of the plating. And the recommended, "oh we forget to chill it", warm white wine was overpriced. Overall, after one ( did I mention warm) bottle of wine and generous tip, $450+ for 3 people. If the aforementioned idea was executed it would have been worth it.
The service, ambiance, and food were excellent. The price point is a bit high, but not alarmingly so. I think the owners/chef should contemplate a drink pairing option as well, which I think many customers would appreciate.
The food, atmosphere and service were very nice. I thought for a meal that cost almost 400 for for three people (only two drinks) the experience should last more than 60 minutes. Too rushed.
We went to Purépecha for my 40th. It was incredible!!! The food was amazing, as was the atmosphere and service. It was the best night!
The food was just ok with the exception of the pheasant. The staff had great attitudes, but are not trained compared to most high end restaurants
Best meal I’ve had in Dallas! So authentic and every course was delicious. Service was perfect. Small but excellent wine list as well. Can’t wait to go back. Worth every penny!
Amazing atmosphere and food.
Beyond amazing - no other local experience compares
The best meal and experience in Dallas
The ambience is nice and fit only about 13 people. The traditional food is made by two beautiful Mexican grandmothers and put their heart and love into each dish. When we were there there was only one other woman in the restaurant so it was very quiet. And there were so many courses that we had to take a lot home. Some dishes I really liked... dessert was amazing sweet potato ice cream! There were many meat dishes so not fit for vegetarians. Many uses of interesting meat like Quail, salmon toe and pheasant. It was 160 a head and did not include alcohol I felt like that was very unreasonable for the food and experience. I will probably not return.
Everything was delicious, the room was perfect and service and drinks tied everything together. Portions were significant, especially over the multiple courses, definitely go on an empty stomach.
Purepecha Room has been highly recommended by the city's foodie writers, so we've been looking forward to checking it out. Upon arrival, it's clear right away that this is going to be CASUAL, i.e. not much welcome or instruction of how the night will go. With the door to Purepecha Room locked, we loitered at the counter in Revolver Taco for about 10 minutes before someone finally greeted us and offered us a drink. The first seating was going long, we were told; we didn't sit down until 9pm for an 8:30 res. The atmosphere—a room that feels homey and hung with antique pots—is cozy, and the mother/son chef duo charming. But overall, we found the experience to be both highly overrated and overpriced. Of the several courses we were served, only a couple of them were standouts (the starter of crudo; an early course of truffle pasta), while most of the rest was fine but unmemorable. The dessert (a spun sugar situation with an overly sweet avocado ice cream) felt more appropriate for the state fair than for a $120pp tasting menu. But it was the service that bugged us most. There was no cocktail or spirits list, so we took the suggestion from our server and tried a pechuga mezcal. When we wanted to move on to wine, most of the offerings on the wine list (leaning toward very boring and mediocre Californians) were sold out. The server recommended a "very special bottle" from Mexico, but since no one working at the restaurant, not even the chef, had ever tasted it, they couldn't tell us anything about the flavor profile—we were just supposed to trust that it was good because it was recommended by a friend of the chef. This felt like amateur hour. So, no wine then. When the bill came, we were stunned to find that our mezcal shots had been $50 a piece! Perhaps that's on us—we could have asked our server the price in the absence of a list with prices clearly noted—but typically it is the service staff's role to inform guests of such things. We left feeling scammed.
Really amazing experience. Don’t miss it. It’s worth every penny.
Most of the food was good, but it was not worth the price. Plus, we were shocked when we got the bill and realized the drinks were $30 EACH! Definitely won’t come back will would not recommend to anyone. I was disappointed, to say the least.
Supper Club. Fantastic food! There is nothing else in Dallas like it.
The Purepecha Room is a one time experience. We booked our reservation nearly two months out for the 8:30 pm seating on a weekend night. While we did not fill the room (14 seats, maximum), our group occupied a majority of the seats. Overall, the food was very good. Most of the eight courses represented combinations of ingredients that we had not eaten before. Several courses were outstanding, bordering on incredible. Only one or two were below average. A particular favorite was the pasta with octopus. The stewed lamb in a leaf with rice was delicious as were both of the mole dishes. The hand made tortillas were also great. On the other hand, the courses seemed a little routine (in subsequently reading reviews on-line, we determined that six or seven of the courses are apparently the same from night to night) and the service was not what one would expect for a $120/per person meal. Despite a reservation, we were not seated until 9:15. Although we waited 45 minutes, no one asked if we wanted a drink. When we were seated, the waiter disappeared from time to time adding at least a half hour to a late evening. In the end, I am glad that I went but do not plan to return.
We were very anxious to see what the place was all about. We were a little taken aback by the mealworm and crickets but overall very pleasantly surprised. Drinks were overrated but service was good.
Such an incredible intimate dinning experience. Every dish was incredible! The flavors and dishes put together were exquisite. I’d highly recommend this place to any foodie who wants a special dinning experience!
The food was really delicious and beautiful. The back room was away from the loud crowds of Revolver Taco, and it had a very intimate vibe. The chef explained each meal to us and gave us some background on both the meal and a little history of Mexico so we understood how that meal came to Mexico. Very high quality ingredients
Hands down one of the best, most unique dining experiences I've had.
If you want to have not only a nice experience, but also enjoy amazing true home made food. This is the place.
Definitely a must!! If you are a fan of collecting culinary experiences. 😊
Amazing traditional Mexican cuisine done with a high level of execution and creativity. There is no risk of leaving hungry with the 8 course meal (we ended up leaving with some to go). It can't be overstated how good the food is!
The restaurant itself is small and intimate, but exciting as you are watching Chef, his mother and aunt prepare each meal. Service was excellent as well. We were lucky enough to be the only table in our service (our of 4 total) so the experience was next level.
My only 'complaint' is a result of my own mistake. I had ordered Pechuga to have with the meal. While it was excellent, I didn't learn until later that each was $45 (about an ounces worth). It would have been nice to be given a heads up, at least prior to ordering a second.
First I must say the food was excellent. Went for the eight course tasting. Tasting was an understatement. Because of the richness of the food, the servings were pretty large. Was stuffed at the end of our meal.
The service was a little haphazard. Silverware was not replaced at the end of each course. Our white table cloth was decorated (stained) at the end of our evening. Also, water refills were slow. Our "server" was also managing the front part the restaurant and would disappear for periods of time. For the price we paid (see later comments), I expected better service.
When we made our reservation, I was not alerted that there was an increase in price of the tasting. On the limited website and reading reviews, it appeared that the tasting was $85 per person. When I was presented my check, it was $120 per person. I guess it was my fault for not asking. Realize that this is for food only. Wine and cocktails are extra. I have eaten tasting at other Dallas restaurants (FT33, The French Room for example) and this price seems a little high. Will I go back? Right now I'm unsure.
One of the best meals we have ever eaten.
Great from top to bottom! Would definitely recommend. Birthday shout out to my lady was stellar!
We were so excited to eat at Purepecha - and loved it when we walked in. There's an open kitchen where you can watch the food being made and it's a really relaxed atmosphere. You really do feel like you're in a friend's grandmother's kitchen! Each course was explained to us and each was very tasty - but lukewarm because the plating took so long to do. The kicker though was when we went to pay. During one of the final courses we were offered a glass of mezcal. The waiter/host said that the chef recommended it to go with the meal. My husband got one. It sort of seemed like it was complimentary... the host definitely did not tell us the price. Imagine our surprise when we got the bill and that teeny glass was $40!!! That really soured the night for us, which would have been fine otherwise. For a glass of alcohol at that price range, the host should advise the customers of the price. Overall, decent food but waaaayyyyy overpriced for what it is.
Grossly overpriced food and drinks. The dessert was a joke, a fried dough complemented by a film-covered warm liquid. Tasteless scraps of duck. A 'chef-recommended' spirit that turned out to be $40/glass and $30 for a vodka martini. We had 2 drinks each and ended up with a $400 bill for 2 people.
Just amazing! Go
Outstanding find. Amazing tasting menu. Every course was a winner. Small, quaint and lovely atmosphere. Hidden in the back of Revolver Taco!
