Great REAL MEXICAN FOOD, if your
looking for Tex-Mex and burritos don't waste your time coming. This is for a really good dinner and drinks. Romantic, great for 1st dates or for a couple on there regular date night out. Wide variety of dishes (meat,fish and shellfish) and appetizers, save room for dessert or at less share it at the table."

The food was all amazing. We ate
on the outdoor patio and loved looking up at the brick apartments. Service was friendly but slow for our party of four. The couple that came in with us was eating and gone before we got our appetizers so it was inconsistent, but I'd wait forever for the homemade tortillas which were fantastic. Everything we ordered was spot on and worth having again."

Drinks and food were excellent.
Hostess was a bit odd. Had a reservation, restaurant not very full. Many available seats in the front, near and in the window. She choose to seat us at table in the back near the kitchen. We of course asked if we could sit in the window and she did seat us there."

We used a gift cert, so decided to
go for dinner. The outside could have used a bit more grooming, but otherwise it was nice ambiance. I don't like spicy food and just about everything on the menu had a kick. The waiter was extremely accommodating and said he'd tell the chef to leave off the "heat"...but that left me with a plain grilled steak and some shriveled string beans (even the rice and beans had heat). The guacamole was AMAZING and the plaintains were delicious as well. Overall, this is a nice place, but I wish they'd put a few more things on the menu for people don't like spicy food...that would be ideal for me!! All in all, I'd still go back but most likely for margaritas and appetizers - the guac and plaintains for me!"

The guy at the door was nice.
Service is not good. It's a shame places don't know hospitality. Were your guest treat us like kings. We sit down greet us say hi. Thanks for coming how are you? Ask if we want a drink suggest something make us feel welcomed. Not like a stranger. Treat us like you want to be treated. Be kind and make us have a experience. Follow that and you will have more people coming. Trust me."

Three friends, one Park Slope
couple with more than 30 years in the neighborhood, one visiting, former Park Sloper of eight years, trying the relatively new Fonda. Service excellent and helpful --!allowed us to have dinner at just the right pace. Food excellent -- prepare for delightful spice. Looking forward to next visit."

So far the only Mezican restaurant
where I can eat Nopal Salad! The food is always fresh and nicely prepared. Chef Roberto Santibañez was at the restaurant the day we dined there. He took care of every Detail and mese sure his clientes were Happy and satisfied w the service! I keep going, never had a bad meal there!"

This is one of our fav restaurants
on 7th Ave in Park Slope. Everything is tasty and the energy is festive. Can't wait to try their Mexican casual bites place, Boqueria, across the street!"

Just what we were looking
for--amazing Mexican food within walking distance from our house. I have to say it's been the best Mexican dining we've had in Brooklyn. The staff was friendly. We ordered a few appetizers and margaritas and for the entrees we had the Chicken Norteno and Chile Rellenos. All equally delicious."

As a native of southern Texas,
this is one of the only Mexican restaurants I visit in NY. The food is consistently great and the bar tenders make a great michelada and margarita. I enjoy getting a drink across the street at La Botaneria, sister bar/tapas restaurant before meeting up with friends for dinner."

Fonda has a relaxed feel, great
cocktails, friendly and professional service and delicious food. It's a fun place for a group, big or small."

We have been to Fonda a handful of
times and every time we go we fall more in love with the food. The sauces are so good you could drink them! The restaurant is always energetic, the service is always spot on. The guacamole is not to be missed!"

Great appitizers, good food but
noisy! Was nice bar seen but very hard to have a conversation. "

Everything was brilliant. We had
guests for overseas and they loved it! "

Not your typical mexican food
place. We have been here a few times before. Make sure you have a reservation, this place books up quickly and you will either wait forever or not get seated at all. The food is delicious! The drinks are delicious! This is a place you want to go to for a special occasion or just a nice night out. "
Dined on 5/25/2014
I recommend the food is very good.
I highly recommend making reservations because the place gets packed my only downside is I find it to be a little pricy for Mexican food overall food is good!"
Dined on 5/17/2014
We've been to Fonda for happy
hour, romantic dinners, group birthday dinners - my fave is to go for a late night meal, just the two of us! The chipotle sauce they serve with the guac is the best and our favourite drink is the rosalita!"
Dined on 5/16/2014
I'm a regular at Fonda and always
a good experience. This time though, food was quite salty. Also, there was a long wait for the entrees but overall it was great! Waiter Luis was wonderful!"

Came to Fonda for Happy Hour a few
times and recently for brunch. It was great but service was slow, I still recommend"

Only wish there were more options
for kids, given that Park Slope is kid-central... Other than that, it was fantastic, a real treat! "

Everything was superb! Well worth
the $$ spent. My mouth is watering thinking about it. "

The food was great! I am planning
to visit the restaurant again."

I'm not talking 'Office Space'
kind of flair here, I'm talking about the dishes themselves. They are extraordinary, and anything you find that pleases your palate is sure to be a success. They change the food menu on a somewhat regular basis (I would say I go 4-6 times a year), and offer nightly specials including a special drink and their dessert choice. Their drinks also are something to rave about - very creative margaritas and brunch mimosas. The sangria has also been very good when I've tried it."
Dined on 5/5/2014
Service was extremely slow -- even
after it was pointed out to, and acknowledged by, the waiter. A manager never approached the table. And, the server did not suggest ANY compensation for our incredibly long wait for food. VERY disappointing!"

I'm from California originally.
this is extremely good sitdown restaurant style Mexican food. It's expensive but it's for the overall experience, the ambience and the service "

Great for brunch and has a garden!
Food and margaritas are tasty and service is excellent!!"

Fonda is my favorite restaurant in
the neighborhood, and one of my favorites in the city. The food is excellent and so is the service. And I love to sit outside when the weather is nice."

It was my birthday,my girlfriends
and I choose this place because of the great margaritas. The margaritas were great, I had more than my share. The place is much smaller than I thought but nice. The food had mixed reviews at my table some of us loved and others thought it was just ok,I have the shirmp over spicy rice and really enjoyed. We did have to wait an hour for our table even though we had reservations but the manager was ver nice about it and we received two rounds of complimentry drinks. "

We had 8m reservations on Saturday
night. The place was hopping. About 15 minutes after we were supposed to be seated, the maître d', Chris, approached us. He apologized for the wait, and told us the realistic time we had to wait was another 20 minutes. He offered to walk us across the street to have a drink and appetizers ON THE HOUSE at Fonda's sister tapas bar. I cannot express how lovely the experience was, how kind the servers were and how delicious the food was. And thank you Chris for making this an experience to remember."

Wow. Our waiter was lively and
cheerful. Completely engaged in our service and, as we were seated by the window, we had a lovely view of the seemingly impromptu Brooklyn St. Patrick's Day parade. We loved it. It is a fairly small establishment so dear god MAKE reservations. They're a bit dickish about it at times. But the food is worth it and they have some tasty drinks on their pre fixe unlimited booze brunch. Expect 3 drinks. No more. They keep it classy here."

My veggie enchilada was delicious.
Mole sauce rocks! The homemade tortillas were excellent. The drinks were great too."

We have eaten at the resturant
several times and always enjoyed the food. However we had a very unfortunate incident happen after alerting staff that one of our dinner guests was highly allergic to all seafood. Although she ordered pork adobe as her entree a plate of shrimp was not only brought out but placed right under her nose. When she handed the plate back explaining that she had a very serious allergy she was told that they had to check with the waiter at which point she demanded it be taken away. The waiter did come back and apologize for the mistake, but the incident put a damper on the evening."

Service was excellent. Food was
very good. Margaritas exceptional walking with the guacamole. Fair price compared to Manhattan restaurant s."
Dined on 3/1/2014
Can they guac the guac? Yes, they
can. These people do a fantastic job with guacamole. It's fresh, it's not just some mush, and it's made to your preference (mild, medium, hot). We left there wanting some more guacamole for the road--I definitely recommend it if you go. As for the entrees, we ordered enchildada suizas and pork adobo. The enchilada portions was small. The pork adobo was pretty decent sized. We were surprised at how sweet the food was. It really took away from the flavor rather than enhance it. I didn't want dessert at the end. The pork adobo was tender, which was great but it was too sweet. Great ambiance but not much room. The service was very good. Margaritas are overpriced. Overall: I'd go back for the guac."

I am from Austin Texas, where
Fonda's Chef was a chef @ La Fonda San Miguel, I found Fonda to be like a taste of home in albeit in a very tight little place, being from Texas we are use to a little more space, that extends to our dining experience ;)"

Please don't be afraid to

This is by far the best Mexican
food in the neighborhood!"

I've lived in Park Slope for 10
years now and this is the first very good Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood! Their tortilla soup is phenomenal! Pretty much all appetizers are scrumptious and so are some of their entrees. Banana bread pudding and Tres Leches are fantastic deserts!"

Went here for Valentines day with
my wife. We had a great experience, great food, and romantic. Service was exceptional. Highly recommend it."
Dined on 2/14/2014
Arrived on time for a 6 pm
reservation and were told it would be a 30 minute wait. Told them we had theater tix and couldn't wait that long. Sat at the bar and were seated in about 10 minutes at a table for 6 that miraculously became 3 tables for 2. Maybe there was a cancellation. Service was both friendly and incompetent. After an appetizer, main courses were put in front of us, which our neighboring table recognized as theirs, not ours, though they had been seated and ordered after us. Then our side dishes arrived with the main courses showing up about 5 minutes later, along with many apologies. BUT, the food was sublime, as good Mexican food as I have ever had in USA. Would definitely return but maybe avoid Saturday night."
