Good food and wine too! Ask for a take outside, just be careful not to leave your purse handy. There are several street vendors around.

In this place you can get the best onion soup in Mexico City and marvelous desserts; the whloe menu is great and every month you can taste a great "grand dru" wine by the glass. Besides, service is great so I strongly recommend it for every ocassion. Prices are fair.

The choice on the menu is vast, the prices are reasonable, portions are normal to large and service is excellent. Lots of wine by the glass which is practical.
I recommend going on Thursdays or Fridays at night because they have live music, a good singer with the repertoire from the 50s-70s in France, charming.
To start we chose the duck salad to share and the portion was so big that even half was plenty. Then my friend took the pepper sauce steak, the meat was very tender and the sauce well executed, not too thick. I chose a fish filet with morel (delicious mushroom) sauce and real morels, it was delicious. To end: tarte fine, an apple pie with almost no crust and tasty sorbet. The service was very good. We never had to wait. One waiter hearing we spoke French made some efforts to present the dishes in French to us, very cute!
I'll definitely go back.
Beware: the map on Trip Advisor places this restaurant 1 bloc south of its real location!

We had dinner here with a friend and we were not very impressed - the service is fine and the quality of the food is also acceptable, but the portions are tiny.

An entree of 'fois gras' consisted of two very thin slivers, accompanied with some stale bread.

In short, will not be keen to go back to this place. There's better French food elsewhere in Mexico City.

We stumbled onto Le Bouchon after our original choice was closed. Despite being right in the middle of trendy Polanco, this restaurant is a little French oasis but with better attitude! The decor is perfect and with lots of tables outside for people-watching and despite us arriving late on a rainy Sunday night, the staff were friendly and helpful. My husband was delighted to find kidneys on the menu that he has been craving for months and equally delighted with their taste, unfortunately my "Pot poulet" chicken soup was very salty and I sent it back but it was received graciously and I was informed that the chef agreed that it was salty and offered a replacement. The dessert taster is a pleasure for the indecisive and/or sweet-toothed with a tiny version of several of wonderful classic French desserts. We will definitely be going back when next in Mexico City. The bill was about $200 for 4 with a bottle of wine.
