Nice space. Salty food. Generous staff. Diarrhea for everyone the next morning. A happy birthday indeed...

We went to Jaso to celebrate my wife's Birthday and were not disappointed. The food was very original, new versions of old dishes, Mexican fusion with top quality ingredients. It is a bit expensive but you might expect that from any restaurant in Polanco. Very nice atmosphere for a romantic dinner.

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.

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!

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
