I love the place, but on this occasion, food arrived late and The portion was smaller than usual, also, service (waiter) was very persistent to the level of being a bit uncomfortable..

I love Lardo for breakfast. It's wonderful. I also love the owner's other restaurant, Rosetta. Sadly, I did not enjoy Lardo for dinner. The artichoke and arugula salad was very small with maybe 5 grams of artichokes and very little arugula too. Given the price, I would have expected a bit more.

The pizza was the best thing we ordered--it had huitlacoche and was delicious (albeit again small).

The special, the barbacoa de res with pan arabe was overcooked and had become beef mush.

The dessert, the carrot layered cake with tarragon ice cream was not good. The icing on the cake was overwhelming citrus flavored, and the tarragon ice cream was not enjoyable and didn't work with the other flavors.

Disappointed as the breakfast is wonderful --the rol de guyaba, the chilaquiles, and other delights.

I normally find the portions in Mexico City very large and can never finish, yet here I felt the portions were inadequate, especially given the price. I wish I loved it for dinner as I do breakfast as it's in my neighborhood and has the best ambiance.

Really one of my favorites in CDMX. Consistently great-the hardest thing to do in the restaurant business- I know I did it for 45 years every day. (Oh the stories I could tell...). Honestly Lardo has it all - from Danny who greets you warmly at the front door, to the great diverse and very flavorful menu, to Ivan who’ll give you great service in a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere that’s cozy yet very spacious as it’s all wrapped in floor to ceiling windows. Be sure to make a reservation because it’s always crowded- and rightly so. Gracias Lardo for many a great meal. Oh and great for breakfast too!

El porkbelly fue una total decepción era GRASA sin carne, el pulpo estaba demasiado salado y era un pulpo congelado y de mal sabor. Me decepcionó mucho, era un lugar que siempre elegía por que era una experiencia de sabores, ahora estuvo FATAL.

The food and service were very good!
Social distancing and cleaning were very conscientious.

I ordered the 'kebab' but it was a ragu served like a quesadilla.
Not what one thinks of kebab.
I sent it back, explained why, and they were very accommodating.

The ceviche and soup were delicious!

We will certainly go back!

It is always a great experience to dine at Lardo: food is delicious and service is excellent.
I believe the menu has changed due to the pandemia, so I missed some of the dishes I used to eat at Lardo.
Please bring the "berenjena a la parmigiana" back!!
