If your looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, look no further. Fonda serves contemporary Mexico City styled cuisine. Locations in Park Slope, Chelsea and East Village. The Quacamole with chips and Sangria are worth the trip. Everything is spiced (not hot, tasty)to perfection. Menu is well balanced, meat, fish and vegetarian. Specials are always awesome.

A fantastic restaurant! Great service, fresh food and very accommodating for people (like me) with food allergies! It is not a large place so it was noisy. The guacamole was excellent! So are the Margarita's!

We ate at their outdoor seating in the back of the restaurant with lively salsa music from their speaker. My red snapper was fresh and delicious.

For the second time within a fortnight, we chose to dine at Fonda. This simple facy proves our satisfaction. The guacamole and the chipotle sauce is just fantastic. Everything else is absolutely exquisite and the service is stainless. A bit pricey but worth it,

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
