4 hour feast of tacos and mescal. Enjoyable and tasty but I thought the flavor of the corn masa often overpowered the delicate flavors of the seafood and other fillings. It was quite expensive as well.

The taco omakase was one of the best dinners of my life. Do whatever you can to make a reservation. The 4pm seating was perfect as the restaurant was relatively quiet - we never felt rushed but there was a constant stream of mind-blowing food. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

We decided to try the taco tasting menu at Pujol on our honeymoon. My husband and I are both really into local and unique food and drink, and Pujol’s taco tasting was a perfect way for us to celebrate our wedding. The service was unsurpassed. The food was amazingly delicious! For the foods some were unable to eat, the chef made terrific substitutions - like wild mushrooms for lobster, chayote for scallops, etc. And the drinks (wine, beer, mezcal, or cocktails - each chosen by a bartender at the patron’s request and to compliment the particular course) were superb. Highly recommend!!

The omekase taco tasting was creative and occasionally sublime. However the servers seemed bored and as if they would rather be elsewhere. They treated guests unevenly and were robotic, with little eye contact or warmth. This is easy to brush off when sitting at a table but at a bar, facing each other for two hours, less so.

Came into the experience with high expectations, and those expectations were shattered. Each course was perfectly thought out, delicious, and paired intentionally with mezcal. Would highly recommend to those looking for a world class, yet truly Mexican experience.

I went alone and had such a positive experience. The staff is so engaging, knowledgeable and just a pleasure to interact with. The taco omakase was beautifully presented but most importantly delicious! I also enjoyed eating with my hands...finger licking allowed naturally. The mezcal was mind blowing...kinda ruined my drinking experience for my CDMX trip by setting the bar too high. The new restaurant is beautiful...organic, modern, open...a design dream. I will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

I loved my first experience and pujol and would definitely return. I don't drink, so would be nice to have two price options (with alcoholic drinks and without). The bartender offered to make me mocktails but in general I like to save my small stomach space for the great food! Otherwise, was a great experience. The service was impeccable but not stuffy, the food was amazing, and I liked the ambiance and pace.

Extremely disappointed with the higher prices (raised them significantly again!) and the mezcal pairing with the taco omakase just doesn’t work. Used to leave buzzed and enjoy a variety of pairings—tonight I just sipped 5 tiny pours of mezcal that were great, sure, but not worth frigging $100 for the pairing. Used to get a cocktail, beer, several wines, a dessert drink, and a mezcal. So over the Enrique Olvera hype. This was the last time

Second time experiencing the Omakase bar. Great food and service. But disappointed with some changes they have made. First visit the drink paring was a mix of wine, beer and mescal. This visit you had to choose one of the above and that’s what you had for the entire meal.

Biggest disappointment is that they took the mole of the omakase menu. If you are hoping to experience this mind blowing dish you can only get via the tasting menu option and not the omakase bar.

I think this is a huge mistake. And the four people around me, who dining at Pujol for the first time, were extremely disappointed with this unpublished change.

i would recommend to a friend only because its "the thing to do in MXCity"
The Tacos Omakase was expensive for what it was worth. I ended up eating only 4 of the 9 courses and it costed around $280 or so.

I had an incredible meal at Pujol. Each course more delicious than the last. The servers were incredibly helpful and walked us through each course and the beer and mezcal pairings.
It was my first time ever booking a reservation for one, and I highly recommend it. I ended up having a great conversation with the group of 3 next to me. We ended the meal by talking on the patio as we enjoyed coffee and deserts. One of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Thank you!

Amazing experience!
When first two courses came out, we thought we would end up finding a cheap taco place as we would end up leaving hungry. But that was not the case! We were very stuffed with amazing food! 8 courses with either wine/sake, Mezcal, or beer pairing. They were also very accommodating with any restrictions or requests. Great atmosphere and service!

Quite possibly the best meal I've had anywhere in the world. I've been blessed to have visit other highly rated and well revered restaurants, but am often disappointed in the lack of authenticity to the region's food culture and also lack of spice or flavor (i.e. focused only on technique). The taco omakase menu is a genius idea to eat delicious food from regions all around mexico, demonstrating the unbelievable flavors and food diversity in the most elegant way. Yet, the meal was remarkably approachable and warm and welcoming - I had no shame or discomfort eating everything with our hands even though sitting in one of the world's best restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful for any dietary restrictions and explaining every detail about the food.

Can't wait to visit Mexico city again, to definitely come back to Pujol
