La Buena Barra surge como una nueva propuesta gastronómica de comida mexicana en una ciudad con reconocidos restaurantes que manejan dicha especialidad ,por lo que teníamos que dotar de una personalidad muy particular al espacio que estábamos interviniendo de manera que desde la primera visita se distinguiera de los demás, tanto arquitectónicamente como culinariamente. La propuesta gastronómica que ofrece La Buena Barra es amplia, va desde los sabores clásicos regios como carnes al carbón y salsas de chiles piquines, recorriendo cuidadosamente la República con platillos típicos de la cocina mexicana reinventados por nuestros chefs.

Reservas a las 8:45, llegas a la hora y te sientan a la 10:15. La comida pasable y demasiada secretaría con su jefe.

La Buena Barra is amazing in Polanco, CDMX. We had a lovely dinner and drinks were great. We had the skirt stake and asparagus, bone marrow, French fries (I think that has a different name), and great appetizers. All done to perfection topped with a cocktail.

The environment of the resturant is beautiful and modern. There is patio seating, although we choose to sit inside. The service was great, when we need a little help with our Spanish we had 3-4 people at our table to help. It really is the little things that matter. Even down to the lovely British soap in the washrooms. Thank you for the great experience and I would go back again and again!

From the moment we walked up the sidewalk to this restaurant, we knew it wasn't for us.

1. It was extremely loud, daresay club-like.

2. As we were seated, in what seemed like an endless smoking section, we passed a DJ spinning tunes and several large LED televisions featuring the latest sports. Yikes!

3. The menu read well, but the actual food paled in comparison to its descriptions.

4. Outside of the general noise level, what ruined our entire dining experience were the extra loud groups on either side of us. One table was set with 7 people, all of whom were smoking cigarettes or cigars. Cigars! Inside a restaurant. Why is that even allowed?!

The service was probably the best thing about this restaurant. Despite everything else, we could at least say we were well taken care of. We will never go back. And we will never recommend this place. To anyone.

El servicio un poco desatento respecto a nuestra mesa, y mismos platillos que ya eh ordenado anteriormente le faltaban ciertos complementos, la carne estaba ligeramente salada.

Besides having a reservation, did a 30 min wait to be assigned a table. We had also a child in our party and they sit us just in the door were the smoking area starts. Food and service was outstanding.

La comida es deliciosa, el ambiente bien nos tocó ir el 15 de septiembre a comer y aún colocando la bandera para decorar creo que eso pudieron hacerlo antes de tener servicio, y el Mesero con alevosía nos ofreció el expreso martini (menú 100 pesos) precio al final de 158 pesos porque al acercarse a la mesa sólo dijo “ese viene cobrado por separado” no que costaría más y nos cobraron más, al igual que otro que llevaba Kalua al final nos devolvió 150 pesos (después de discutir obviamente) ni siquiera el total que correspondía.
Vigilen eso porque de muy mal gusto fueron otras 4 personas que no regresaran por ese detalle.

Food is great. Prices reflect this.
Smoking is allowed where we felt it shouldn’t be.
Otherwise the place is great.

Las Hostes están muy guapas pero tan sobradas que son demasiado soberbias y algunas hasta groseras, no entiendo para que abren reservas si hacen esperar más de 40 minutos, si paga uno caro pues que se haga valer el dinero se dan mucho a querer al fin lugar de moda , El Paso de l gente con canastos de ropa sucia por o recepción es incomodo , los baños de varones 2 mingitorios para tal cantidad de gente es deplorable , hay fila para pasar al baño .

Esperaba un ambiente en el que pudiera platicar en una mesa de 5-7 personas.
El volumen tan alto de la música no nos permitió conversar cómodamente.
Lo recomendaría para comidas de negocios, no para cenas de negocios.
