Located in the heart of Colonia Condesa, this place has been a foodie reference for every national and foreign traveller visiting Mexico City for more than 15 years. The food is amazing, of the best quality.... and the service fantastic! All the staff is friendly and willing to give the best during service.

A highlight of Zorzal was the staff who were attentive and helpful throughout. The meat was good quality but the chips could be improved. My wife enjoyed her gnocchi too. We sat outside and did feel a little like we were sat on the motorway but we enjoyed our dinner nonetheless.

They have very nice cuts of meat and well prepared food here ... it is one of the pricier Argentine places you will find in the DF so if you want to spend less look for Escarapela across from Parque España or El Restaurante Argentino on Fernando Montes de Oca.

Upon arrival at El Zorzal, we were greeted by friendly and polite staff who made us feel very welcome. We were sat down with refreshing sparkling mineral water and a superb international wine list. We were considering one of the many USDA grade beef cuts on the menu and our waiter brought all of the cuts that were on the... More

The quality of the meat is not great and the service is so-so. The jugo the carne could be better and the side dishes as well.

We ate at El Zoral one Sunday evening when many of the restaurants are closed, and would hesitate to go back. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the food was no better than average. The steak was not very tender and the vegetables greasy. They have a decent, if expensive, wine list, but the reality was that there were... More

This restaurant is a classic in DF so we had to try it. Yes, this is a place to come back. I would come back just to eat empanadas, a salad and a good wine. The desserts are also yummy and the service is simply impeccable. We ordered the churrasco and it was not so great, the prices are also... More

I love this place. Have been eating there for years and would happily eat the arrachera everyday if I could and it wouldn't kill me.

El Zorzal has always been a very good "parrilla Argentina". THe quality of the beef is very good, the service is perfect and environment is ok (Polanco) The wine list is decent with a good variety of wines from Argentina, however the prices of the wine are abusive, more than twice the price you would pay in a store which...

El Zorzal came highly recommended from friends who had lived in the area previously and we were not disappointed. Nice "casual elegant" atmosphere and the service was good. The server was very patient with my very poor attempts at ordering in Spanish, but he got everything perfect. Food was wonderful and portions generous and well worth every penny!! Steak, side...
