La música estuvo un tanto fuerte dificultando la conversación y haciendo el entorno menos agradable. No recomendaría una comida de negocios o de amigos para conversar aquí por esa razón.

Muy rico todo como siempre. Excelente servicio por Leonardo. Lo único que me da tristeza es que los camarones roca ya no son como antes... parece que los hacen al aventón y sin ganas, antes eran más ricos, un plato más sustancial y con mejor presentación. Entiendo que sea el plato más pedido pero no deben de dejar de echarle ganas.

Nos dieron la peor mesa !! Y se tardaron mucho en darnos cartas o por lo menos decir buenas noches. El lugar, bien. El servicio y atención, pésimo. Si nos dieron esa mesa porque hice la reservación con ustedes, prefiero no volver a hacerlo ! Muy mala atención

Recomiendo hacer cita en open table porque si hay lista de espera. Informal elegante en la mejor zona de Polanco lo que Tiene su ventaja, buena vista , gente atractiva, moda y porque puedes salir a parque lincon a caminar o de ahí al auditorio . Comida sin pretensiones lo que conocemos como comida japonesa sushi , sashimi y tempura pero bien preparado. Si quieres divercion y una experiencia festiva aparta tu plancha de tepanyaki un plus .

The toilets didn't have a Toilet Seat!!! I would expect a restaurant of this price and in this neighborhood to have nice, clean and complete toilets.
The rest was very good.
