Exquisite special occasion restaurant. The tasting menu is creative, surprising, and beautifully presented and executed. The restaurant is minimalistic but elegant and service is gracious. You will likely see the chef as she often comes into the dining room.

Still great after all these years. I find the pizza dough a little salty, but the burrata, the meatballs and the pasta are all really outstanding. It's a warm and comfortable place that does not disappoint.

Small place but great stuffed pancakes. Be sure to try the beef and the onion and egg version. Noodles and dumpling are ok, but not as great as the pancakes.

I was a little disappointed by Pujol. The menu is cutting edge, but some dishes are more intellectually interesting than they are "delicious." Service was less than what it should be. Do not let the restaurant call you a cab, they will bilk you for 3-4 times what it should cost.

Very large tacos, at leaf twice the size than at other taquerias. The fish ones are great, so are the vegetable ones that change seasonally. Fun drinks and mescal next door at Mosto.

Fantastic food, though even with a reservation getting a table is tricky. Service was good, though we were guided to over order. Many amazing dishes including walnut prawns (heavily battered), king oyster mushrooms with golden chives and cabbage guo ta tofu, "double skin", fish & vegetable dumplings, wok-braised lamb, tea-smoked duck, and pork belly with preserved vegetable (mei cai ko ro).

Outstanding pizza, great beer and a lovely outdoor setting. It's no wonder this place is so popular. Try a flight of beers, it's a good value and a fun way to taste what's on offer.
