“Utter Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

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 chef and the pastry chef continually amaze me. And the service is impeccable.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

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!

“Up to par with the best of Mexico City restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

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 dumplings are a distinctly West Coast creation but with a Mexican twist. In addition Jaso has perhaps the best bakery in Mexico City and the desserts surely are the best of the lot. By all means try the degustation menu - an excellent value for the price paid. If you have room, splurge on the cheese platter - a superb variety of Mexican and European cheeses. Jaso is still one of the few places that serves the rarest of Mexican cheeses - the aged Ramoneti from Ensanada - itself worth the visit

We liked very much the whole experience at Jaso. Good staff (despite they're a bit hurry), cool decoration e very good food.

“Great Food, Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

among the best in Mexico City, Jaso has several outstanding dishes. Try foie gras ravioli, or chicken in heavy cream. IT has a very nice terrace, and for a romantic evening you can reserve the wine cellar for a couple, with a tasting menu that will prove to be amazing.
