“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

This is a French restaurant. The service was excellent and very attentive. The wine list is varied with very good wines although some are exceedingly pricey (never order wine in Mexico City without verifying the price or you may be unpleasantly surprised). I was with a party of 8 and all meals were delicious. The restaurant atmosphere is pleasant and apparently some locals dine here "to be seen" (the Polanco is an upscale neighbourhood). It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we will return.

“Good restaurant spoiled by waiter with BAD attitude.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

This is not the first time that I have been here and like both the locaction and food. This visit was ruined by an elderly waiter with incredibly bad attitude who looked down his nose at my daughter and I who had gone for a quick, quiet dinner and shared a huge salad and a steak, not out of meanness but out of not being very hungry. He could not keep the sneer off his face or out of his voiceeven though we were neither difficult nor demanding and could see no reason for it but were too tired to make a fuss. Maybe management should watch what is going on a bit closer. Despite this I will be going back.
