I took my husband to Frida's to celebrate his birthday on November 2010. He surprised me by asking me to marry him!!! We will always have a soft spot in our hearts for Frida's. We had Valentines day dinner there this year. It was the best.

Who would have thought combining fish, spinach, rice, chipotle sauce with raspberry sauce (Pescado a la Frambuesa) would be good. I was pleasantly surprised. Very good food and a decent price. I feel the prices were a bit high for the amount of food you get; but the food was very good. My wife got a shrimp dish which she... More

Food was very fresh and delicious. Premium Frida margarita was the best. My husband wasn't too fond of the frozen margarita. Service was prompt and very friendly.

Visited this restaurant because of a recommendation from a friend. We ordered the Queso Fundido appetizer - a lot of food for $9.99, could serve 4. It was a mixture of Oaxaca cheese, sliced mushroom, and chopped onion - served with soft warm tortillas in a spicy tomatillo sauce. Wonderful flavor and great value. Our 2 entree's were Poblano peppers... More

The service was fine but the food was not. Our appetizer was Huitlacoche Quesadillas. Which I guess translated to English means tasteless mushrooms and goat cheese wrapped in a tortilla. I had the Chile relleno de callo al cilantro. It's sapposed to be scallops wrapped in pablano peppers. The second bite told me that these were not scallops but plugged... More

We ordered three entrees and an appetizer and all of our food was quite good. The atmosphere was average. Our waiter seemed hurried and never bothered to see if we would like coffee or dessert to finish our meal. A turn off to me!!

We had lunch at Frida's today. The decor is very nice and the waitress was very pleasant. I ordered the Pescado al Cilantro with Basa and it was very tender with excellent flavor. The serving size was a little smaller than what I am used to, but a very nice meal nonetheless.

Not your usual tacos & nachos, Frida's offers sophisticated Mexican cuisine. Food is the highlight here. A little more expensive than the average Mexican restaurant, but the ingredients demand a higher price. There is not much ambiance (in a strip mall set-up). But the food is very good.
