GREAT experience. I sat at the Bar with friends and had the tasting menu with several juice and liquor pairings. It was awesome. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere is perfectly contemporary. It took awhile to get a reservation but is is totally worth the wait. GO NOW!
Excellent service from all staff. Exceptional food. Beautiful decor.
I was rushed through dinner. I was dining with a friend for his birthday and enjoying great conversation. I did not appreciate being rushed to get through our plates and drinks when I am spending that kind of money and trying to enjoy the world renowned food. Dining is an experience and mine was not great. I will not dine there again because Pujol’s business focus does not value this experience. Truly unfortunate.
An amazing place...
Just a 5-Star experience in every aspect. Execution of food and service is unparalleled. Very, very well done.
Todo fue excelente. El trato, el ambiente, la comida y las bebidas. Grandes!
We give Pujol very high marks all around...the approach to food and dining, the friendliness and skill of the staff and the tastes...all great to experience.
Strangely enough, the minor suggestion has to do with the set taco menu. It was very filling, maybe even too much food. (And that surprised us!) The pairings were great (even the non-alcoholic ones) as were the triple deserts. But a little more variety (soup/salad/pasta/fish) and a few less tacos might be even better.
Thanks for a great experience...and desert in the garden was a lovely touch.
I was really excited to go to Pujol, but I was a little disappointed. We did the taco bar and it was good, but it wasn't great. Overall none of the dishes had very strong flavours, and I think they were dulled further by being wrapped in tortillas. Just lacking pizazz. The atmosphere is great and the service was top notch, but I wish the dishes were a bit more exciting. I also found the drink pairings a bit stingy.
When booked thru opentable I didn't realize I had to commit to the Taco Omakase menu at the bar. It's prix fix tacos plus mandatory drink pairings. Came out to $320 usd for 2, which I feel was too much. I would have preferred regular table seating and choosing my own entrees. However service was pretty good. They were accommodating to us since we didn't want anything spicy. Nice touch that they serve the last course (dessert) outside. It was a delicious churro.
Asistir a este lugar es una experiencia que recomendaría vivir: excelente ambiente, comida auténtica y un gran servicio.
Es una gran experiencia, felicidades a todo el equipo son excelentes
Dissapointing , not good value for money. Misleading and very average.
The service, ambience, and indoor/outdoor environment were certainly excellent. The welcome and farewell were courteous and polite as expected. I sat at the taco bar for the 10-course taco tasting menu. The experience is structured in a delightfully unique way: each set of 2 courses is paired with a beverage (usually wine); after the trio amuse bouche, and the main courses, there is an interlude where they take you to the kitchen for a brief tour; then, they walk you to the outdoor garden where they describe some of the plants which are used in the kitchen; finally, they sit you in this beautiful, lush garden for the final part of the menu, the set of desserts.
While the pacing is perfect, I did start to get a little full at dish #7, and could only have a few bites of the remaining main courses. But, this may not be a problem for others.
I was generally pleased with all the courses and their presentations. I specially loved the duck al pastor with pineapple, onions, and chili, and this was nicely paired with an Argentine Cabernet blend. The chili stuffed with Oaxaca cheese and Wagyu beef was rich and well balanced. Other dishes, however, lacked a complexity I was hoping for. For example, the eggplant tortilla with black and red mole was rather bland, despite the fact the black mole is a special preserve (a nearly 4-yr process). But! interestingly, the mezcal pairing completely changed the whole thing, bringing out details of the dish into sharper notes that I didn’t taste before. It was very nice.
Some things, I thought, didn’t really fit in the meal: specifically, two of the amuse bouche pieces, the puff with a shave black truffle atop, and the one topped with caviar, felt rather contrived in context of everything else.
But, the third of the amuse bouche set, the carrot on a stick with spices and coffee was delectable. And, the outstanding spiced coffee at the end was a delicious throwback to that carrot, and therefore a great closure to a wonderful meal.
Excelente servicio y alimentos. Muy bonito lugar y platillos súper creativos con ingredientes mexicanos.
