I liked it a lot, good is great. but... the music was very bad. They should improve it. And the birthday dessert was also bad, they should delight with their best option not the average one.

There are so many fantastic restaurant options in Mexico City. This is one that deserves repeat visits. Do not miss the cannelloni.

Great place with superb service. All of their flavors are familiar but have being crafted in a way that challenges your senses. Definitely will come back.

The food was a pleasantly unexpected. I mean I expected it to be good. But it tasted way different than I thought it would. Get the tosadas mentiras and you’ll see what I mean. Wonderful experience, loved supporting a young woman in a male dominated industry, loved meeting the young and talented kitchen staff, will definitely be back!

This is my fourth and last time at Carmela. My first time was when it first opened. It was really on its way to being one of Mexico’s Best. Every time I have returned menu items have been changed but not updated on the menu, drinks are (bourbon) and signature drinks don’t have the detail or attention they once had and are watered down.

This place is beautiful but lacks the heart it initially had.

I am done with Carmela.

Nos llevaron el plato fuerte cuando aún estábamos con la entrada, y a pesar de pedirle al mesero que lo reservara en cocina para que no se enfriara, lo dejó en la mesa. Celebrábamos un cumpleaños, y solicitamos al mesero pedir a cocina poner algún detalle al postre ordenado, pero nuestra petición fue ignorada. La comida muy rica, a pesar de estar fría; una lástima el servicio.

All of the food was mediocre. Pulpo tacos incredibly oversalted (presumably there was an olive tapanade?) Virtually inedible. Chicken pate was OK but mostly fruit so it was so sweet you couldn't taste the pate. Had to remove half of the fruit to taste the pate. The short rib dish was swimming in a half-inch of thick, unappealing sauce. Salty and tasteless. I have the impression that the chef has authored some compelling dishes, but that the line cooks are blowing it on execution with unforced errors of saltiness and ingredient proportion.

Otherwise everything was pretty good, but food matters most so this restaurant deserves a 2.5 out of 5.

Los ingredientes son de alta calidad y muy frescos, aunque los platos son abundantes no se queda una sensación de pesadez lo que indica que son cuidadosos en el uso de grasas y mantecas , la cocina es muy buena a partir de ingredientes y platillos de la cocina mexicana con innovaciones y combinaciones muy afortunadas . Aunque en esta ocasión no tomamos vino la carta es extensa y razonable en precios , un lugar para recomendar y sobre todo para volver felicidades!

Fuimos a celebrar el cumpleaños de mi hija y no cabe duda que el lugar es extraordinario, toda la comida es deliciosa, la combinación de ingredientes es sorprendente, pero lo mejor es el resultado final, una delicia de manjares!! El servicio es excelente, muy amables y siempre al pendiente de los comensales. Reservé por Open Table y le regalaron a mi hija un pastel de cumpleaños de postre, hermoso detalle!!!
Me fascina este lugar y lo recomiendo siempre!!

I love it here! My fav gourmet Mexican in the city. The chef, gabriela is.from Tabasco and the food represents that. Best.old fashion in the city ( and I've tried ALOT). Highly recommend the mientras (liars), and banana packets. This place is an all around 10 for me.

Tienen algunos platillos con sabores basicos de la comida mexicana y tienen otros con sabores únicos y que valen la pena con un toque diferente.
Hay que ir más de una vez para probar varios platillos y seleccionar los mejores

Extraordinario descubrimiento.
La reservación a través de open table funcionó muy bien.
Nos pasaron de inmediato a nuestra mesa, bien ubicada.
Un buen aperitivo. Entradas deliciosas: las tostadas de mentiras. Compartimos las crepas de cochinita pibil. Gran combinación del sabor poderoso de la cochinita, con sabores a quesos y cremas en los que están inmersas las crepas.
Plato fuerte, el risotto tumbada con pescado. Gran sabor.
El servicio de Luis fue atento, cercano y con grandes recomendaciones.
Al final, el gerente Filiberto conversó con nosotros.
Seguro volveremos.

Superb cuisine and ambiance. The care taken with each plate from the dish itself to the flavors was noticeable and appreciated. The staff could use to be a touch more knowledgeable about portion size as the servings are a bit larger than they said and are best when shared with several people. As we were two only we felt that we over-ordered and couldn't eat everything - much as it was delicious. It's a shame that headlights from cars shine through the beautiful floor-to-ceiling wood slats along the windows from the car lobby next to it. The bar area seems to be the place to be and I would ask to sit there.
