Nice food, superb service

We went there cause my spouse wanted Mexican food, and we enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. They didn't have place inside, so we sat outside, which was better in our opinion. It seemed less crowded. However, if it wasn't late enough, it might have been less favorable. In any case, the... read more

A group of friends got together for drinks and dinner. We ate out doors and enjoyed the delicious food, great drinks and wonderful service. I ordered the tuna cerviche and my entree was a scallop and shrimp dish that was nicely seasoned. We had several rounds and that made the bill on the high side. We'll be back put will... More

I guess we had high expectations since we are from California. But I don't think that is it. The food was good but not great. My daughter had taquitos which she expected to be fried crispy. Instead they were three regular soft tacos, good but not what she wanted. My chile rellenos were good that they were not fried but... More

This Mexican food restaurant is delicious, if a bit pricey. I highly recommend the guacamole, which is super delicious.

Consistently excellent Mexican food. We order regularly from here and the food has been scrumptious most of the times. The soup is packed with flavors and is spicy. Love the chicken flats, cheesy and spicy. The chicken mole enchiladas are my favorite. They are slightly sweet but the spices from the chicken balances it all out. For the vegetarians the... More

I've never been disappointed in a meal here. They have a great happy hour too, and the service is attentive. Always a neighbourhood favourite. Their black beans are to die for!

Fonda has two locations, one in Brooklyn and one in the Lower East Side on Avenue B and 3 street. I have to say the Location in the city is my favorite. They have a very nice happy hour with delicious bar food and nice drinks. I am very peculiar when it comes to drink margaritas and theirs were very... More

We've eaten here a couple of times and the food is very good. The Guacamole is delicious, as are the black beans. Service is good. It's not cheap, but not overly expensive either.

Enjoyed this restaurant for the first time. If you want great Mexican food in Park Slope section of Brooklyn, wow - this is the place! Atmosphere is super nice, service is very quick and friendly and most importantly, the food is amazing. I went with the CARNE ASADA CON HONGOS Grilled marinated skirt steak with a sweet corn, mushroom sauce,... More
