Great spot for a Sunday lunch al fresco. We did the tasting menu and each course was fantastic. As great as the fish was, the suckling pig took it to another level. The pairings were nice, but I opt to order a bottle or 2 from their nice list. A+

Great food in a very pretty street in Roma however I felt rushed in the restaurant which isn’t common for a place of this category. Waiters were friendly but not very attentive.

Underwhelmed. I was hoping for a larger influence of Mexican flavors. Leans heavily French - what’s disappointing is that it tastes just like a meal I could have easily had in NYC (at NYC prices)

This service was insulting. The kind that makes your skin crawl and has the potential to ruin your whole evening.

I took my parents here and the waiter snatched the plate away from my dad before he had even finished his food. The sommelier said to my mum “you can’t afford this”, they brought out multiple dishes at once and RUSHED us through the whole evening. Worst dining experience ever. Avoid at all costs.

Had heard rave reviews of Màximo Bistrot. Started with the cebolla cocida en suero and was outstanding, but the following dishes were disappointments, the experience quickly diluted. Overrated restaurant. Once again it proves (in my opinion) that these “Best Restaurant” lists are only chefs helping themselves.

Buen servicio, buen ambiente para cenar en pareja. Tenía mucha expectativa del sabor y por el precio que tiene, me dejó con regular experiencia.
Quise pagar con AMEX y dicen que no hay sistema, creo que lo inventaron.

Highly recommend!

Restaurant is cozy and on a neighborhood street corner. Has outside tables as well. The food was excellent and the overall vibe was that of a small hip bistro. Would highly recommend.

Nice food but severely overpriced considering the portions are tiny - for a grilled octopus dish costing over 400 pesos I got one tentacle. Then asking if we want water without revealing that they would be charging 90 pesos for the privilege is taking the p**s. You can eat a lot more innovative cuisine in Mexico City for a lot less.

Maximo Bistrot se ha vuelto el típico caso de restaurantes llenos de turistas en busca de "grandes opciones" para comer/cenar en la ciudad. No digo que sea malo. Es buena la comida; sin embargo, pareciera que tienen prisa para que comas (los platos ya están preparados y nada más los meten a recalentar), para que otros comensales puedan ocupar la mesa. Nuestra reserva era a las 9:00 p.m. Para las 9:42 ya habíamos terminado de cenar. Muy buen servicio en general.
El lugar totalmente "X" en cuanto a decoración. Nada acogedor.

Every time I eat here I am simply very happy. The food is always great and the service wonderful as well. It helps that they all know me since I go there frequently.
For me, Maximo is the best dining experience in Mexico City.
Siempre un placer a comer o cenar aqui. Nunca te decepciona y siempre sales más que satisfecho.
Una joya de lugar!

Felt like they were hurrying everyone through their meals and out the door. Appetizer plate is taken away and dinner put down immediately. One in our party got her dinner 2 minutes after we ordered. Wait staff is nice and obviously following directions from management to rush the meals. We will not return.

Excellent spot to mark a special occasion. If you're hungry though, don't go for the tasting menu. While we enjoyed the surprise of all the dishes, we found that the tasting menu could have included an additional course. We ordered one and were perfectly satisfied after that.

We had been trying to get to Maximo Bistro for a couple of years but something always came up. We are so glad we persisted and finally made it there! Our original group of 5 grew to 7 and the staff was very accommodating. One of the unexpected benefits of a party of 7 is that we received the chef's menu--8 or 9 different delicious dishes in portions large enough for 7 that we all thoroughly enjoyed. What a great dinner!
