Pujol - Tasting Menu
Excelente todo, servicio, comida, vinos, música.
Los platillos son excelsos, todo estuvo perfecto, la atención magnífica
Oh boy, where to begin? Yes, our expectations were high (as they should have been). Yes, Pujol failed to deliver. Yes, we watched the Chef's Table episode. Yes, we like Mexican food. Yes, we got both of the tasting menus (Mar and Maiz) to try everything we could. The street snacks were cold, the ceviche was subpar, the mole was too smokey (stop aging it), and the drinks were rubbish. I want to better understand how such an esteemed and ostensibly beloved chef could fall so low in the emerging scene of modern Mexican cuisine – there was compromise at every dish. How someone could possibly describe this menu as "great" is truly beyond the scope of my comprehension and quite frankly, is sinking their teeth into the juicy fat of hype and lying to themselves. Throughout the meal, I daydreamed of sitting at El Califa enjoying brilliantly simple tacos and a refreshing Dos Equis. Oh, not the meal I'm looking for? That's fine, and I agree with you, but Pujol failed to convince me that it was worth visiting. Furthermore, that I was craving $10.00 USD tacos is truly a red flag. If you do go, manage your expectations and prepare yourself for disengaged dishes that are banal with respect to both their presentation and taste. To the Pujol staff, if you are reading this, please make sure to close the ceiling windows for guests; we don't very much care for being rained on while dining. And please, watch out for the lights? How could it possibly take 15 minutes to turn the lights back on? 50 World's Best comes out tomorrow (6/25/19), and if this restaurant somehow slips in the top 25 I will truly lose hope in fine dining. Enrique needs to stop traveling and get back to Pujol to assess the atrocity he calls a restaurant. Ask any local – they'll tell you to skip it.
I wanted to love this restaurant SO MUCH but it was very disappointing. The service was SO BAD. We were a party of 10 split into 2 groups. The other group had outstanding service, meanwhile, ours was terrible. Parties that were sat after us, received their drinks WAY before us as did our other group. We had to ask 3 times for our drinks before we finally received them. We asked for a wine/drink pairing but were told they did not have that - but for a restaurant of this caliber, we should have at LEAST been given recommendations. Our OTHER table was given recommendations by their waitress. The food was good - creative, seasoned well, good portions. However, it was not worth the amount we paid. Our meal for (me and my husband) was over $500. I would not have minded paying that if the experience was outstanding but this was sub-par. If you're looking for a creative tasting menu in Mexico City, go to Quintonil. We've been there twice before and it blows Pujol out of the water.
Fue realmente decepcionante que un lugar de esa categoría no cuide detalles como una cuchara sucia con lápiz labial.
Me gustó cada plato que probé. Cada cual estaba buenísimo. Es uno de los mejores sitios donde he estado.
The staff, service and friendliness was excellent!
El lugar está muy lindo, la comida deliciosa.
Solo la sommelier necesita un curso urgente de vinos espumosos.
La mejor experiencia de mi vida ! El perfecto regalo para mis 40 anos !
Extremely Expensive for what it is.
Food is average given I do have higher expectations. Quintonil is a better bet overall. Understand it’s a tasting menu experience and it’s not supposed to rush but dishes delivery is indeed slow.
This was by far the best meal i have ever had. The food was excellent, great presentation, explosion of flavors on each plate. Each course is explained as when they drop it off. i will definatly come back to Pujol!!!
Buena comida y ambiente pero no vale la apelacion restaurante gastronómico. Esta rico pero tampoco es una explosión de sabores y finura... es un buen restaurante pero he visto mejores
El servicio es bueno, aunque hay un poco de alboroto en el lugar. Me gustó más el menú de maíz que el de mar. En general es muy bieno y es una experiencia que se debe vivir, pero no regresaría, ya que solo es con menú de varios tiempos y no hay opciones s la carta.
There is nothing for the value.
The tasting menu has traditional flavors but nothing other affordable restaurants can’t do. And some are so basic you could cook them yourself.
Other restaurants in Mexico who don’t even have stars are 1000 times more worth it.
We had a lovely meal at Pujol. Quiet table for 2. Service was friendly, informative and restrained.
Recommend having the Maiz y Mar if you are two for dinner. It is fun to share.
From the moment you want in,until the moment you leave; there wasn’t a moment I didn’t feel impressed. The staff is well educated and friendly the decor is stunning from the first course to the last, depending on what tasting menu do you get; you will not be disappointed. One of the great reasons I will be coming back to Pujol will be that every dish was pack of flavor and very well plated, the 1913 day of mole was the one that won me over. Great work to both back of the house and front of the house! You will definitely see me again on my next trip back to Mexico City.
Exceedingly disappointed with the food this time
Will be my last trip
Pujol is on point in every rating category. Exceptional food, innovative presentation with impeccable service. There is a reason why it’s rated the way it is.
One of the best meals I’ve had in my life
We ordered both tasting menus. They were good but not exceptional. Service was a slow in the beginning but picked up later.
PASO UN GRAN DETALLE QUE SOLO ALGUNOS DEL PERSONAL DE DIERON CUENTA
Incredible, unexpected flavors with each dish. Staff was caring and always looked out for every guest. The place architecture is really nice. I was very happy to enjoy my bday here.
We tried really hard to manage our expectations of Pujol and whatever expectations we tried not to have those expectations were met and at times exceeded. The tasting menu was exquisitely selected by the Chef to represent the array of Mexican cuisine. Our wine & water was always full and the service was spot on.
With that said, there were a couple of things that we didn't like. The whole experience can at times feel a little scripted or robotic-like but maybe we should look at it more like a well-oiled machine. Also the area we sat in was distractedly always filled with loads of wait staff which felt a bit claustrophobic and chaotic. Having mentioned these things they weren't enough to alter our overall experience which was very enjoyable and overall very good.
Excelente como siempre!
Es toda una experiencia Gourmet! Si vas en pareja, lo ideal es pedir ambos menús para poder probar los dos!
La mejor experiencia culinaria que he tenido en mi vida.
Es una experiencia artística, hermosa y llena de amor a la vida, la naturaleza y nuestra relación con ella.
It was amazing!
Me encanto, delicioso, diferente, agusto, el lugar es muy agradable, el servicio es excelente y los empleados muy amables y serviciales.
Excelente servicio y comida
Food was bland, unimaginative, and nothing I could not find in the generic restaurants at let's say Vegas. Service was super slow, took 20 to 25 minutes between course. We left before the end of all courses, especially there was not much to look forward to
Experiencia diferente, vale la pena, exagerado el costo de los vinos
Comida para festejar a mi hijo
Breath-taking! We were very lucky and got a last minute reservation. (It's worth checking 1-2 days before). Everything was great and definitely exceeded expectations. We followed the recommendation and ordered different tasting menues - it is easy to share and then you get to taste more. The signature dish, mole, is part of both menues, so noone is missing out.
I loved that the food was very sophisticated but with very distinct core components ... really perfect.
Sin duda ésta es la primera de muchas visitas que hare. Vale, y mucho la pena aguardar por una reservación.
La comida deliciosa, el servicio, ¡TODO!
Toda una experiencia !!!!
Fue increíble!! La comida excelente y tuvieron un detalle para el cumpleaños!!! Espectacular!!!
Sorprendente. Inigualable. Me encantó. Vuelvo a ir 100 veces.
Celebración en familia el cumpleaños de mi hijo, el trato del personal del restaurante amable y profesional, los alimentos realmente de Gourmet, el ambiente y la música en especial adecuada y en coincidencia con nuestro gusto
