Solo éramos 5 mesas y aun así el servicio no fue muy atento

La comida muy rica

Eran las 4:30pm y pedimos movernos a la terraza ( una hora al postre y fumar). Nos dijeron que no porque tenían todo reservado desde las 7.

Increíble no poder dar una mesa que no está ocupada...

La verdad fue una experiencia bastante MALA. Primero no nos tomaron la orden de las bebidas, teníamos que buscar a los meseros. Luego pedimos 3 entradas de las cuales dos no tenían. Se acercó el gerente a disculparse y le dijimos que no importaba pero luego nada más no nos atendían, tuvimos que pedir las cartas 3 veces. Cuando nos quejamos El mesero decía una cosa el gerente otra. Fue tan malo el servicio que después de las entradas decidimos irnos a otro restaurante del área. Estuvo Pésimo!!!

What an incredible experience from the minute we walked through the doors. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, with upstairs, downstairs, and outdoor seating to make space for many people without feeling like you are in a tight space. Service was excellent and all recommendations were enjoyed by all. Drinks and wine list were great and the ambiance was so cool, you could have an intimate corner or a group of rowdy talkers and everyone had the space to enjoy what ever mood you felt like experiencing. Cant wait to come back! Love the chicharrones de rib-eye and the agua chile did not disappoint. Get both versions, both equally good and totally different.

We were seated in an area that we did not want. We were looking for an upstairs table but at the time of booking there was no option to choose in which area to be seated. So we ended up in a smokers area with incredibly loud clubbing music. Conversation was hardly possible at the table. The cocktails were good.

We didn’t plan for CDMX traffic being so brutal so we had to cancel our reservation at Rosetta and were very close to La Unica so we popped in because it looked like there was available seating. We were told we needed a reservation, but could eat at the bar upstairs. Smoking was allowed (not a fan) so I got on the Open Table app and found one reservation 7 minutes from then. Maybe a cancellation? Either way, thanks Open Table!! It was the same hostess and she was a bit surprised, but very nice. We were seated at a quiet 2 top and ordered some wine since we already had drinks from the bar. For starters she had the grilled artichoke, which was 2 large artichokes and delicious. I got the escamoles (ant larvae) over roasted bone marrow and it was delicious. The waiter could see the confusion on my face when it was delivered so he made a taco for me as that’s the way it must be eaten. That was one example of the truly amazing service we received. For dinner I had the Northern BBQ, which was delicious, but I was basically full from the appetizer - that was too much for one person. She had the filet and it was cooked to perfection. Great meal and even better service.

Aun y cuando la ambientación y el servicio son buenos, el objetivo real de un restaurante es la comida, y desgraciadamente no es el fuerte de La Unica. Como ejemplo, pedí un caldo de camarón que más que caldo era un potaje de grasa. El aguachile rojo, conceptualmente me parece una buena idea, pero la ejecución fue bastante pobre, realmente no tenía mucho sabor. Lo que si es destacado son los postres, bastante buenos.

TODO MUY BIEN, HUBO QUE DECIRLES A LOS MESEROS NOS ATENDIERAN MEJOR, EL NIVEL DE LA MUSICA ES DEMASIADO ALTO, SE PIDIO QUE SE BAJARA YA QUE ERA UNA CITA DE NEGOCIOS Y QUERIAMOS PLATICAR MAS, SE ESCOGIO ESE LUGAR POR SER COMIDA MEXICANA.
FUERA DEL EXAGERADO RUIDO LO DEMAS ESTUVO MUY BIEN.

Al reservar puse que era despedida de soltera y quería mesa en terraza. Nos dieron una mesa junto al pasillo y frente a la cocina hasta q les pedí q nos cambiaran pero la srita nos dijo q como era despedida de soltera no podíamos sacar adornos y cosas así porque era zona VIP.
Obvio no íbamos a sacar adornos y coronitas jajaja ni al caso pero sí nos incomodó el comentario. Y ya en terraza había cada borracho y una pareja dando espectáculo que de VIP no tenía nada...
comida, servicio de los meseros y ambiente excelente!
