Food was amazing! Chef Israel certainly knows how to delight his guests with an incredible combination of dishes and flavors. You cannot go wrong with whatever you pick from the menu. Do yourself a favor, order several items and share with friends or family. You will remember this piece of advice. Ambience and decor are great and service was impeccable as well. We will return!

Desde la recepción, son muy amables y el lugar es comodo. Sillas, mesas, servicio y decoración son agradables.

Pedimos agua y fue un buen detalle para mí que sirven Agua de Piedra, ya que es parte de mi consumo regular. Consistente con la filosofia del lugar en consumir productos nacionales de calidad.

A continuación una empanada de plantano, de masa de maiz, con un saborcillo familiar, que podria ser a agua de hojas de aguacate. En fin un sabor sutil el de la masa y bien balanceado con el platano.

Pedimos de entrada el aguachile verde de callo de hacha, y la ensalada de tomates. El aguachile lo preparan junto a la mesa, y de la misma forma que la empanada es un sabor familiar y de muy buena calidad, el callo, fresco, tierno y delicioso.

El plato fuerte, fue el pulpo en achiote y la pesca del dia. El pulpo se cocina en barro, y al momento de servirlo se rompe la "cazuelita" donde se envuelve para cocinarlo. El resultado de esto es una carne suave, tiernita, lo que le pulpo puede ser de tierno. Con el sabor de achiote delicioso, ademas servido en un plato que representa el juego de pelota, ese platillo es todo un viaje.

Los postres fueron el de Guayaba y el de Mamey. A mi me encanta el mamey, asi que estoy un poco sesgado, pero igual delicioso, dulce sin empalagar y sin modificar el sabor de la fruta.

Es un lugar con excelentes ingredientes frescos, pero el hacer un platillo no solo es colocar los ingredientes juntos (buena presentación, aroma bueno, sabor muy promedio). En mi opinión a la cocina (o el chef a cargo es muy joven) le falta ese toque místico de la sazón, lo que diferencia un buen platillo de uno memorable. El ambiente del lugar es excelente donde el único inconveniente son los mosquitos de la terraza. La propuesta son platillos mexicanos en un entorno gourmet. Algo qué vale la pena mencionar es la amplia propuesta de Mezcales (diferentes botellas de distintas regiones y de distintos agaves). Creo que lo que más disfruté fue la sobresaliente atención del personal (inclusive hablan inglés).

Raíz has a lot of praise online, however the tasting menu did not live up to the hype nor was the value fully realized. Several courses were too large for a tasting menu and the flow of the overall dining experience was unclear. There was a lack of balance in certain staple dishes (the beet salad) while others were confusingly two-note (pork belly with ‘kimchi’). Each course also came within minutes of the last leading to a feeling of being rushed and giving almost no opportunity to refresh your palate.

The staff was knowledgeable and attentive however there was a constant flow of individuals (kitchen, wait staff, etc) into and out of the restaurant via the dining room which ruined the ambience of the meal.

Overall the experience lacked the polish of a sophisticated tasting menu in the bougie Polanco neighbourhood and at the current price point there are several other CDMX options that I would recommend over Raiz.

Got the 9 course tasting menu, well worth every peso. The staff was on top of their game, from food to the service everything was on par to a Michelin level restaurant without the pretentiousness. My favorites of the night were the foie gras, escamole enflatada, table side salsa with grasshoppers, the soup with beans and chorizo, pork belly(?) and guava sorbet. From all the cocktails we ordered, the serrano was my favorite.

el menú es m uy atractivo, pero no hay todo lo que ofrecen, en 2 ocasiones regreso el mesero a decirnos que ya no había lo que pedimos, y que casualmente fue lo que el sugirió..
la lista de vinos MUY cara, con sobre margen muy importante... y no tienen todas las etiquetas que ofrecen.
en resumen me dio la impresión de que no saben administrar las existencias, o están en crisis..
