The burger was pretty amazing we ordered that with Jamón Serarno and a beer. Th place is nice with good ambience, worth the while.

Nice place to seat at sunlight, good food, but the service? Awful, I don't understand how is possible to have a service like this in the main area of Mexico City... I ask 4 times for a glass for my beer....20m to get them, between other bad examples of the low quality service

This most be the most popular restaurant on the block. Good service, large wine list with interesting wines. We had a bottle of Montepulciano from Encenada, Mexico, it was delicious! Too bad I can not say the same about the food which I found very mediocre. The restaurant has great atmosphere.

The restaurant Brassi is in a fantastic spot in Polanquito, very popular with locals. It is the perfect spot for people watching. Try to get a table outside (reservation highly recommended!): if you don’t mind the constant stream of traffic and the seemingly permanent flashing lights of the police cars, then you will see very nice people walking by and...

Arrived late and strolled to here a couple of minutes from our hotel and it was fine, but from the next day we found much better places to eat - more atmosphere, better food and cheaper.

All of the food I have had here has been very tasty. I've been a couple times. Service is a little slow, but if you are there on the weekend during the day you can see some entertaining performances that you actually want to watch.

Food was good, nothing outstanding. I got the spaghetti bolognese which was pretty good, but the waiter never came by to offer Parmesan cheese which was a bummer. My husband git the red snapper which was fine. A little over priced compared to some other Italian restaurants in that area. *I would give it more than a 3 star based... More

I loved the various starters and ended up sharing with the rest of the group just them. Great tuna tartare, excellent bursts and squid carpaccio. Good service

My family and I really enjoy going to Brassi. It's well located in Polanquito. If you sit outside you may be solicited for change or people may try to sell you anything from house plants to lottery tickets but it's not a terrible amount of that going on and they are usually very respectful and quick to leave if you...
