The food and service at Origen were our favorite of the trip. The waiter took amazing care of us -- thoughtfully selecting which wine and mezcal to pair with our meal. And the potato appetizer is not to be missed!

The mezcal list is spectacular...5 pages! The menu had very interesting combinations of flavors and the service was very attentive. We will be back!

Our waiter, Daniel, spoke English and explained everything in detail including the Mezcal. Our selections were just right, my wife had a pork dish, like a rolled filet and I had grilled quail and oyster. Recommend reservations in advance if during busy seasons.

Excellent dishes, artfully presented by attentive wait staff in a building that recalls the colonial history of Oaxaca. And the mescal was tasty as well.

My criteria for restaurants when traveling is whether I would come back if it is in my food snobby town of Berkeley. I would definitely return. I had a great grilled radicchio salad and quail that melted in my mouth. I wish I could eat...More

My meal at Origen was up there with the best ever. (And I live in a big foodie area.) I had the octopus to start and the confit suckling pig in chicatana manchamantel for my main. The dishes were just the right size. Go to...More
