Good Mexican food. Be sure to call ahead. We actually got right in with a call, but those just walking in had a 2 hour wait. Could have just been luck, but I would get a reservation. We didn't get the guacamole, though most people did. We got a cheese appetizer. There were 3 of use and they only gave... More

Mexican can be a tricky category for dinning. You can have the cheap eats taco choices or something fancy like Rosa Mexicano or Suenos. Cheap eats are a whole 'nother ball game, but when you want to go upscale, Fonda is my perfect choice. let me add that when I say upscale that doesn't mean high prices. The food here... More

Although it has been here for quite a while we see it is getting more and more well known. Fonda serves very delicious Mexican dishes to a crowd of Brooklyn foodies who love it. We came in from Manhattan because we had heard of the native dishes available in Park Slope. Service started a bit slowly as the place was... More

I had the Special of the Day- pork chop. It's very tender, melted in my mouth and excellent flavor. We also had tacos, and desserts. They all were delicious. The service was also excellent.

Been here several times and will continue to go back when in Brooklyn. The menu is authentic and traditional with every dish really well made, the margarita’s, guacamole through to the mole and enchilada sauces and 3 milk cake. The décor is contemporary with a warm atmosphere and an authentic buzz. It is a mid-range restaurant so it’s not a... More

Had dinner there, the food was excellent and the service equally as good. I highly recommend Fonda. Definitely have the guacamole to start.

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 waitress was really friendly, the food was... 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
