“Service is outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Continuing with my quest to visit all A&G restaurants in america, this time I went to the mexican branch and was not disappointed.

As usual, the restaurant is in a very large and nice house, at the posh Polanco neighborhood. Service was amazing, it seems there is one waiter per table and they never left us unattended.

The menu presented some changes not found in other branches but I opted for a safe "lomo saltado" which was delicious. Not to mention the lovely dessert - a chocolate sphere filled with lúcuma ice cream and hot chocolate sauce - to die for...

Still a great experience!

“Sometimes excelent, sometimes so, so”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

First visit was excellent; atmosphere, service, menu, food etc., etc. Visited yesterday with family to brag about the Restaurant and was surprised. Welcoming was far from cordial. Service was really poor for this "top of the notch place", although food was still great. Ceviches and shrimp are excellent. Perhaps this time they did not have enough personel, but I think I will think again going back. For the prices they charge I expect first class service!

“Terrible atitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

I know Astrid y gaston from Lima and from bogota
This time I have decided to go to Astrid y gaston in Mexico with important gusts l had
This was a terrible mistake ! The service was so slow that we had to leave the Resturant after two hours and fifteen minutes without receiving the main dish ! No body from the staff offered any apology or concession. Just nothing .
This is the first time in m life that I had acountered such an attitude in a what is supposed to be a fancy Resturant
