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.

Ya no es pet friendly por lo que nos tuvimos que ir. Ya habíamos ido varias veces con nuestro perro pero nos llevamos esa triste sorpresa. En general nos gusta el restaurante mucho pero ahora que ya no aceptan mascotas dejaremos de ir

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!

Me parece que el servicio lo pueden mejorar, nos sentaron en la mesa que esta a un lado donde sirven el café y los meseros estuvieron acomodando sus cosas poniéndose casi encima de nosotros para hacerlo, creo que podían esperar a que estuviera vacío el espacio, los servicios estuvieron sucios y sin papel.

Buen lugar. Se nota que tiene un excelente ambiente. Las pizzas son MUY pequeñas y no lo dice en ningún lado, ni los meseros lo mencionan. La comida en general tiene muchas especias estilo árabe e hindú, no lo esperaba.

Tristemente comienza el fin de un gran restaurante. Su plato insignia (el huachinango salvaje) queda por debajo de lo que estábamos acostumbrados y la burrata la sirven con una porción miserable. Por si fuera poco, el servicio fue pésimo. Es evidente la falta de capacitación y la nula vocación de atención al cliente. Me sentí atendido en un restaurante de cadena. Además, hago esta reseña considerando que cené dos veces en la misma semana (Jueves y Sábado) y pedí lo mismo, pensando en que la primera mala experiencia había sido circunstancial pero, desafortunadamente, me doy cuenta que la única consistencia que ahora manejan es el mal servicio y una pésima relación valor/precio.

The food is unique and delicious, however everything is a la carte and small dishes. We left hungry. The fish was undercooked and had to be sent back, but all in all the experience was good, and we will probably go back.

Lardo came highly recommended from a friend and also from an Airbnb experience host. I would not go out of my way to go here again. Upon being seated, our waitress was rude and not welcoming. After ordering, one of the pizzas was incorrect which she denied and did not offer to replace the food. The steak, potato lasagna, and eggplant parmesan were good, but the service was so off-putting that we did not stay for another drink or dessert. Having dined in several nice restaurants throughout Mexico, Lardo was the most disappointing.

We arrived early to our reservation and were seated almost right away which was nice. We were greeted by our waiter almost immediately after sitting down and to our luck spoke both English and Spanish. We were given both menus. We ordered about 7 different dishes, all which were amazing. The deep fried avocados in lemon sauce was amazing. Our waiter was very attentive and before our wine glasses were empty would ask if we’d like another.

The highlight of the night were the ham croquettes, which were really outstanding. The rest was average at best. The location is fine, and the summer sunset light through the big open window was delightful. But service was rushed, and the whole experience was mild and uneventful. Portions are very small. Overall not a good value. We do not feel like visiting again.
