The dining room is extremely sophisticated and elegant; there is a smart cocktail bar. The menu uses Mexican ingredients to achieve an international but not especially distinctive choice (with some goodies thrown in) and the staff are professional. You could be in Madrid, New York or London but the accents remind you that we're in Mexico, and it's none the... More

Jaso is known as a trendy place with good food. I found it average and noisy. To be absolutely honest, I think their breads are pretty good. To me, a restaurant is good when you remember what you ate. The place is trendy, nice people around, service is just ok and food average. Needless to say it is pricy.

It was a unique experience full of flavors and the attention was excelent. The smoking area is do romantic that you can go there and forget about the city's and daily life problems, while having a delicious dinner and a wonderful dessert (don't forget the dessert)

Jaso might not be rated at the same level of Biko or Pujol in Mexico City, but I definitely love going back. It was a Monday evening to celebrate my wife's b-day, so there were very few tables and us (table of 14!!!), so we definetely livened the place ourselves. They have always been accomodating, and this time, following my... More

We went to Jaso to celebrate my wife's Birthday and were not disappointed. The food was very original, new versions of old dishes, Mexican fusion with top quality ingredients. It is a bit expensive but you might expect that from any restaurant in Polanco. Very nice atmosphere for a romantic dinner.

It doesn't get any better than Jaso. Consistency and dependability are important attributes that keep me returning to a restaurant each time I have an opportunity, and Jaso exceeds my expectations each time. Honestly, I am leery of inviting out-of-town guests to a nice dinner because of lack of the aforementioned, but Jaso is an exception. The creativity of the... More

Going to Jaso was a delightful experience. The food was very good and the desserts even better! The service was excellent at the beginning, but by the time we had coffee our table was left alone for a while and no waiter would approach. But still it was a lovely experience!

Jaso is a gem of a restaurant clearly up to par with Biko, Pujol and Maxximo Bistro in Mexico City. Innovative Mexican cuisine fully leveraging the outstanding variety of Mexican fruits, spices and herbs. Jaso's distinctiveness lies on its chef's DNA ( American with a sweet tooth). Flavors and presentation reminds me of new California cuisine. For example the squid... More
