Pujol is just pure extravaganza. It will hit you with flavor after flavor until there’s no other way than to just surrender. By the end, Pujol will conquer your heart and soul.

Second time at Pujol and it was amazing. I enjoyed the taco omakase even more than the regular experience. You get to talk to the team and learn more about food. Amazing!

Everything about this place is thoughtful. The food was delicious. The staff explained it all very well. There are one or two weird ingredients that they gloss over for squeamish people who don’t eat out often and that’s perfectly fine. Each bite was better then the last. Carmen and Gabriela were the two women who took care of us this evening. They are such warm, welcoming, knowledgeable people. Gabriela is a first class mezcal sommelier. She will make sure you up your mezcal game. I would go again if there were an opening while I’m here sadly there is not.

Excellent meal. Service was perfect. Especially Gabby, and one other wonderful lady whose name I didn’t get. Ultra professional service like this is what makes the experience so special. The tacos were excellent - traditional Mexican ingredients presented in new inventive ways.

Taco Omakase itself is worth the experience, true to traditional Mexican form with a Japanese influence, obvs. Everything was cooked beautifully—creative execution but nothing mind boggling. The drink pairing that nearly doubled the price amounted to 4 drinks and was, unfortunately, obligatory.

Es un restaurante excepcional, con una comida espectacular. Sin embargo, nos parecieron exagerados los precios del menú y de los licores. La noche que estuvimos hacía mucho frío y no hicieron nada por cerrar o ajustar las puertas. Por consiguiente, entraba viento y todos los platos se enfriaban rápidamente. Por el precio no volvería.

Como experiencia es muy buena. Pero si, el estar ya en el lugar que está lo vuelve overrated al 100% ir a pagar 4000 pesos por persona por comer una dobladita de mole y tacos dorados es demasiado, vale mucho más el menú degustación y cuestan igual. Claro que todo es impecable, el servicio por mucho el mejor de la ciudad, el lugar es hermosisimo, hay que ir pensando que es una experiencia gastronómica y no una cena mas o saldrás enojado.

This was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. We sat at the taco bar and spent three hours eating. We had 14 plates in all, and tried 5 different mezcals. My wife had the vegetarian version of the menu, which was also all delicious. For desert, they’ll ask you to go to a section outside. I thought this was a little jarring at first, but realized it was to let us take our time with coffee and dessert. The mole, which was six years in the making, was a highlight. Worth every penny.

Between Antonello, Ellie, Carmen, Eduardo, Ricardo, I was served and waited on by some of the kindest and warmest and best of their craft. To say this meal was incredible is an understatement. For context, I booked a bar seat for the omakase, expecting to spend the entire meal musing in my head about the flavors and profiles I was tasting. What awaited me was warm company, expert dives into every meal, and me not feeling like I was expected to feel alone while dining alone. I will have to make more return trips to CDMX specifically to come taste and experience more of Pujol. Congratulations on a superb team and an execution of a marvelous experience. Muchissimo gusto to all I met. Thank you for making this trip unforgettable.

Lived up to every expectation. This is next level dining that is rarely available anywhere in the world. Food was impeccable, can not be faulted, plate after plate did not disappoint. Service was without fault, attention to detail on point. I was concerned I would leave too full but happily just satiated. A treat all should experience.

My friend and went to Pujol for lunch and decided on the taco tasting menu with wine pairing. Every element of the dining experience was so well considered, from the food (which was outstanding), through to the service and ambience (architecture/lighting/sound/smell). We started our meal at the bar and finished with dessert in the outdoor courtyard, which was a lovely way to end the meal. It was a truly memorable experience and I would highly recommend.

Very seafood heavy. I’d ask for the vegetarian options if you don’t like fish or seafood for every meal - they are very accommodating to these substitute requests.

Absolutely worth trying once, but honestly seemed a bit overrated, especially at this price point. The service was solid, but not impeccable (there was a mysterious and abrupt transition of designated dish explainers a few courses in, and the understudy who stepped in was not the equal of his predecessor; also, I overheard at least one explanation that was offered to the adjacent section, but not mine). I grant that my experience was colored by sitting next to the Instagram generation. This was for the taco omakase tasting at the bar. As for the food, the ingredients were pristine, but a certain sameness pervaded after a few courses, and the menu items weren't the most satisfying iterations of their kind (I am, admittedly, partial to tortillas de harina). At the end, I mainly felt like I paid too much money for the privilege of feeling over-full and eavesdropping on vapid, pretentious millennials. Additionally, the cab driver they kindly hailed for me was a navigationally challenged grifter--the only time this happened to me in Mexico City. I think I was late to the party on this one, and that the hype was probably more warranted in the restaurant's more nascent stages.

We got the last two seats for the Omakase experience. From arrival to departure this was one of the most enjoyable culinary emprime. Nine courses, plus a dessert geste, and mezcal pairings. This was a symphony of service and culinarian chops.

We did dinner on Friday then Lunch the next day. Both experiences were amazing. We thought lunch was a little more relaxed, and more fun vibe. But definitely try out both. Food was amazing

The chef prepared a vegetarian option very delicious. The presentation of the food was great as well as the explanation of the dishes by the well-prepared staff. Service is very good. You can choose to match the food with drinks, wine, mezcal beer or cocktails; I can recommend Mezcal, they have a very interesting choice.

Experience was good. However, I don't know why Pujol hide the prices. If the chef thinks his food is great, why not be transparent and have the tasting menus prices on their website?
It is not until they sit you down that they give you a menu card and at the very bottom in very fine print they include the price. Anyhow, I didn't like that.

I treated myself to a solo meal while visiting friends here. I was greeted warmly, and such great care was given to me in small ways: pushing my seat in, showing me to the restrooms, letting me change my mind on drink preference, explaining the dishes and answering my questions, and never making me feel rushed! The food truly speaks for itself, but I found myself so warm with happiness from the level of service. It’s SO worth going to! I will be back.

Al hacer la reserva informamos que uno de nosotros era alérgico al gluten y que no podía ingerir ningún alimento con gluten de lo contrario la persona se enfermaría grave mente. El día de la reserva le dieron platos diferentes a esta persona aduciendo que eran gluten free, sin embargo no lo eran. Mi invitada tuvo que ir al hospital por ingerir gluten en Pujol. Es una irresponsabilidad por parte del restaurante dar alimentos con gluten a personas alérgicas.
