Eight years ago, Maximo Bistrot started as a restaurant for the thinking and execution of dishes from a wide range of techniques with the best of local ingredients; a warmful place that communicated our love for food. After a long and heartwarming road at our current location, we thought for the need of moving. Our new home, located at Alvaro Obregon 65 bis - a much wider space where gleams of natural light shine upon the surface-, is carefully assembled by Gabriela's meticulous look, and a kitchen built within Eduardo García's early memories, while living as an inmigrant in a barn in Ohio. Despite this big change, our principles initially founded remain the same: to offer food that distinguishes the best of local products.

    We ate at a LOT of great restaurants during our most recent visit to Mexico City, but this was by far our best meal. Every course was terrific (we ordered ala carte and did not have a tasting menu), and service was spot on. We did not have any of the service issues other reviews have mentioned. Service was attentive, not pushy. And did I mention the amazing food?! Yes, it's expensive, but if you can afford a splurge, you will not go wrong with Maximo. And thanks to the restaurant for celebrating my husband's birthday with a delicious flan.

    La experiencia de la comida es la esperada por la reputacion que ostenta, asi como el precio del menu, las bebidas son buenas, unicamente deberia mejorar el espacio del restaurante es reducido; el espacio entre las mesas es apaenas el minimo, en momento sientes la presencia de los demas comensales muy cerca.

    Maximo has a lovely ambience and impeccable, if very rich food. We felt the best value was to order a la carte for our group of 3, and felt we made the right choice - we had more food than we could finish, a good bottle of wine, a round of cocktails, shared dessert, and still came out under the price of the tasting without pairing. The service, however, was really overly eager to clear us out at every moment. We didn't feel tables around us were being similarly pressured, and couldn't tell if perhaps it was just lack of coordination of staff. We had to tell multiple servers and busers to stop trying to take things away over and over, sometimes within a 30 seconds of the last server visit. They also brought us our first dishes before cocktails even arrived (significant lag), which added to the feeling of weird timing and rush. Great ambience, great food, everyone super pleasant, but the service became very noticeably a part of our experience and not in a good way.

    Mientras la mascarilla se impone a todo el mundo, a los clientes que se mueven y a los servidores, el director y su asistente van de mesa en mesa sin mascarilla... Recepción media, comida decente, carta de vinos demasiado cara incluso para vinos locales! De ninguna manera México como me gusta.... ¡¡¡Decepcionado!!!

    Terrible, go elsewhere. This restaurant overcharged us at the end, blaming the credit card machine, by over USD 60. Food was bland, nothing to rave about. Don’t waste a precious lunch or dinner in Mexico City at this place.

    Fantastic food. Everything we received was delicious. However, service was mediocre at best. Server did not write down our extensive order, and the food we received was incorrect. Several members of the staff were staring at our table throughout the duration of our meal.

    Máximo Upon entering there is a certain Chic laid-back ambiance to this place, with a touch of elegance. You walk right past the kitchen and see where these beautiful dishes are made and the passion behind the staffs work. I ordered the Octopus Ceviche and I have never had any octopus cooked so well and to perfection like I did, I had to meet the chef. Chef Garcia is a humble passionate cook and loves his culture and community and you can tell through the dishes he puts out. Everything we ordered after that was absolutely amazing. Everything was cooked to its peak texture and taste. Oscar was our server and he treated us so well and was there to tend to us for anything we needed. I had gone to Pujol the evening before and it doesn’t even compare. Maximo is in my humble opinion the best restaurant in Mexico City, possible one of the best in the world. Máximo Al entrar se respira cierto ambiente Chic relajado en este lugar, con un toque de elegancia. Pasas por la cocina y ves dónde se preparan estos hermosos platos y la pasión detrás del trabajo del personal. Pedí el ceviche de pulpo y nunca había tenido un pulpo cocinado tan bien y a la perfección como lo hice yo, tenía que conocer al chef. El Chef García es un humilde cocinero apasionado y ama su cultura y comunidad y se nota a través de los platos que prepara. Todo lo que pedimos después de eso fue absolutamente increíble. Todo estaba cocinado a su máxima textura y sabor. Oscar fue nuestro servidor y nos trató muy bien y estuvo allí para atendernos en cualquier cosa que necesitáramos. Había ido a Pujol la noche anterior y ni se compara. Máximo es en mi humilde opinión el mejor restaurante de la Ciudad de México, posiblemente uno de los mejores del mundo.

    I first ate at bistro maximo when it was in an intimate little space on Tonalá . The food, ambiance, service — everything was transportive . Perfection. And I fell in love . This new Maximo has the same quality and tone of service and amazing food as before but obviously it’s less intimate. It has a bit of the energy of a club . Not bad . But different. Beautiful large open space . Convivial . Warm , attentive and friendly waiters . My only complaint would be the hot spot lights on some of the tables . I need softer more indirect lighting to really relax. And I don’t think that would be difficult to achieve in this space . It would also augment some of the classy elements already in place and make it more classy and less trendy . Bring in someone who knows lighting and my love affair would be renewed. Ps - it was impossible not to notice that the flowers running down the center were brown and finished . I wondered if this was some new aesthetic or statement I was unaware of .

    #of guests -4, excellent ambiance, casual. Good: - Mai Tai w/mezacal was excellent. Negroni not so good. Ribeye-excellent, seafood in bouillabaisse-excellent, tuna dish good but sides were ok. First waiter was helpful and promptly guided us to an English speaking waiter. Not so good: -service was disappointing inspite of many servers. Had to remind them several times about bringing us water. Also, absolutely no description of food as expected with a place with this reputation - just placed the dishes, nobody checked on us, no offer of dessert menu. Unfortunate: - my husband had major cramps w/ nausea in the middle of the night and wasted all day in bed the next day. The food seemed fresh so we are attesting the cramps to ice in his drink. Again assumed that fine establishments use filtered water for ice and so ordered cocktails.
