I was so excited eat here but I thought the food was just mediocre. The guava roll was amazing (bakery items all good, from Rosetta bakery I think). But the egg dishes were not impressive at all. Perhaps dinner is better. Service just OK.

Absolutely incredible restaurant. We don’t speak much Spanish, but the staff was incredibly kind. I think that our attempts at Spanish helped break the ice, but they truly wanted us to enjoy our meal. The food was amazing. Everything we ordered was spot on, delicious, and just the most wonderful flavors. We had the burrata w/ pomegranate, fried squash blossoms, a salad with arugula, chicken, pork chop, and the fig ice cream. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in CDMX

Had an incredible lunch here - FYI there are additional items on the Spanish menu that are not on the English menu. Sitting at the bar was a great experience. I highly recommend lunch here

The food and vibe of this restaurant was very good. Since my friend was unable to join me, I gave up my table and sat at the bar. The one negative was that two of my three courses were served to other people at the bar before making their way to me.

Lardo is a very hip place. The service is great and the food is excellent. You must try it if you want to eat great, without spending a fortune.

Don’t forget to try the deserts!

They guy that sat us down was not clear with the reservations and we got there first but told us to wait and seated someone that just arrived before us. That was kind of annoying

Lardo tiene características que lo hace ser un lugar en el que cualquier encuentro con amigos, se vive mejor. Es relajado, la carta concisa pero "provocadora por lo novedoso y misterioso" facilitan las decisiones y propician las ganas de compartir. Se agradece muchísimos que sirven agua, sin que la pidas. Es una infusión refrescante con un toque de "algo". El local y propuesta de decoración aprovechó su localización en una esquina, abre los ventanales y da la sensación de amplitud. De un lado ventanas de piso a techo, abiertas y del otro, una barra nada convencional y siempre "habitada" por personajes que trasmiten "buenaondes"s ...¡¡¡Bravo Elena Reygadas, trasmites tu espíritu en este "consentido" de muchos.

Buena comida, como siempre, aunque noté que la carta está más limitada. Faltan opciones de sopa, por ejemplo. No me gustan las cervezas artesanales y sus copas de vino están muy elevadas. El ambiente bueno y el servicio también.

El servicio fue tan malo que nos fuimos después de los appitizers. Los camareros parecían más preocupados con mesas grandes que con una mesa de dos. No fue muy amable, lo cual fue triste, ya que reservamos dos meses antes y seguíamos adelante.

Servicio muy bueno, pero pedimos pescado (huachinango y róbalo) y ambos olían regular, sobre todo el róbalo. Un pescado fresco nunca huele y menos cuando ya ha sido cocinado. El resto de comida (ensalada y hummus) excepcionales, al igual que el pan de la casa (una mezcla de masa de pizza napolitana y pan árabe). Es la tercera que vamos, volveremos pero no pediremos pescado :)

Food was either over seasoned (salty croquettes) or downright bland (baby chicken). Felt like we we’re being rushed. Had the carrot cake for dessert as my “bday” desert. Not carrot cake! A weird layer crunchy thing that slightly resembled carrot cake so they could call it that on the menu. Not impressed at all!
