It was our anniversary dinner. We had reservations, got seated on time. Neither the waitress nor staff attended the table for at least ten minutes. I told my wife that the service was what you expect in Europe, they take their time. We ordered drinks, that took some time. The order for the appetizers came next, they came out with... More

Great Mexican food rather than Tex-Mex. I've eaten here twice and loved the drinks, food, and service. The restaurant offers a variety of margaritas but try the mojitos too. I recommend the chicken mole and rellenos. Other members of our party enjoyed the fish and shrimp dishes as well. The waiters are knowledgeable and happy to recommend dishes especially for... More

The atmosphere is great, but the food is over-priced and mediocre. Love the art work and ambiance, but this is probably the most expensive Mexican meal I've ever eaten.

Met friends at the bar at Fonda San Miguel. While it can get crowded later, it isn't too busy if you get there around 5 PM. The margaritas are among the best in Austin and the appetizers are fantastic.

A beautiful setting, a beautiful restaurant & very good authentic & haute Mexican cuisine. The queso rajas was very good. My husband pork stuffed poblano with a slightly sweet cinnamon infused sauce was very good, my Ensalada Espinaca was all right , though nothing special. The cilantro dressing for it was good. The Flan de Almendra is to die for!... More

Wife and I had dinner in the bar area. Love the bar here....nice, quiet atmosphere, cozy and the drinks are very good. I had the duck enchiladas with poblano cream and they were unique and very flavorful. Really tasty. Wife had the chicken mole enchiladas and loved them. Mole was truly authentic with the right taste/hint of chocolate. The waiter... More

After hearing lots of good comments about brunch at Fonda San Miguel we finally got there . Over all a good experience but we have been much more imoressed at dinner. Brunch often compromises food quality as hot dishes for they are often held too long and or overcooked and that was true on this visit and contributed to an... More

Good South of the Border menu but a bit loud and pricey. I had the special Cameroon's de Horna and chocolate cream cake. The Dragon Will Return ..
