My wife and I just finished dinner, and we are shocked. This place was awesome, in fact I proposed to her there! We hadnt been there in 10 months and OMG, what happened???? Its not as if it became an ok place (coming from a fine cuisine, one of the best in the city), its simply disgusting. I hate writing... More

Don't be fooled by the front of the restaurant, no money has been spent there, no name on the building, very little lighting on the building, the address 88 is not very big, (I thought the place was closed) and unfortunately they didn't spend any money on the ladies washroom either… But Stop… Now the good stuff ... our two...

We experienced Jaso for dinner in a recent visit to Mexico city. The food was well prepared and very tasty, however, when a couple of items were temporarily missing from the short menu. The desserts were amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and polite. They also showered us with extra dessert, and take home little cakes for breakfast. The restaurant... More

On arrival exactly at the time we had reserved, we were told to wait - not offered a chair of any kind. The waiter kindly talked us through the menu in English (thankfully) - while he was talking the butter arrived - but when we asked for bread, we were told it wasn't ready yet - the bread finally arrived...

With recommendations from friends we made a reservation for the only time available 7:15. When we got there, no one was there. I ordered tortellini stuffed with cheese and caramelized onions in an onion broth. The tortellini were not cooked! hard as a rock. There was no broth to speak of.The waiter took the dish back and several minutes later... More

Had a great experience. Had the tasting menu (which is a surprise so you don't know what's coming) and was amazing. Great staff - Very attentive and despite limited ability with English made us feel really comfortable and looked after.

This place is lovely, dishes prepared with care and the presentation is lovely. It is a small restaurant so it is wise to reserve. From the street it looks more like a bakery; the main deal (maybe, need to try the cakes!) is in the back. We love the fact that we can walk to Jaso but believe me, we... More

One of those places that combine fancy, creative food with a simple, down to earth ambiance (it's actually next door to a hardware store) Food was delicious -- and service quite attentive. We didn't get any appetizers , but they brought some anyway Some people say it's not cheap (and it is not), but it is super reasonable when compared... More
