I'll begin this review by saying that I love food and I love to try new and different restaurants during our travels. With that being said, I just had a dinner that was second to none at CEDRON in the Condessa area of Mexico City. From being to end, the service, drinks and food were flawless! There were six of us dining and each of us feels the same way about this dining experience. We all ordered different entrees but I will only describe what I ordered. To start I decided on having a red sangria. I am picky about sangria and the flavor was perfect. The staff brought out various breads and dips to accompany the bread. Everything was fresh and delicious. Then the chef sent a complimentary, crisp mixed cucumber salad that was a perfect way to prepare the palate for our main courses. For my main entree I chose Osso Bucco de Ternera (veal) with pasta. The only way to describe it was heavenly! Each and every one of us were raving to each other about how wonderful our individual meals were.
One of our party was celebrating a birthday. So when the time came for dessert, the staff brought us a lovely herbal tea to help clear the palate and then they brought a perfect lava cake for our Birthday girl. We also tried the Creme Brûlée and it was delightful. Then the staff surprised us further by bringing out a sampler dish of petite confections that just blew us away! I think every restaurant should offer a dessert just like this sampler. It was perfect! We hope that the chef and staff at Cedron keep doing what they are doing because this is food done right!

We had reserved a table, and called a few days before to confirm the booking. But on arrival staff were scrambling around to get the table ready. Our friends arrive a bit before us and they were enjoying a beer, but we were not offered drinks. After 5 minutes our table was ready. But then we still weren't brought a drinks menu. We basically had to ask for menus in a restaurant that wasn't busy downstairs. Then we were given menus but only one wine menu. A bit later cocktail menus appeared and drinks were ordered. After fruity water was served and bread brought out the drinks finally arrived. Service seemed to improve after this and our food order was taken. To be fair, the bread was delicious. Starters of tuna tartar vietnamese style rolls (absolutely delicious) were brought. The bread was freshly baked and warm. We had our french friend with us. During his main he asked for bread several times and was eventually told it wasn't ready, so then we ended up with bread for everyone after we had all finished our mains. I ordered the steak, my partner the lamb. Both delicious and elegantly presented. All mains came out at the same time. Overall I feel this restaurant has the potential to be 5 star but the service is only 3 star. When you are going to a higher end restaurant the service needs to reflect this. Nobody checked if the food was ok, there was a draft as the band came in and guests left. We kept having to ask to shut the door. Our friend needed a separate bill and requested this no problem at the beginning. But that was wrong so took a while to be adjusted. Then as the amounts changed we hadn't calculated the tip right and the waiters got awkward and made a big fuss about it. Other people have had wonderful experiences here but our group felt let down by the service.
