Food is exceptional.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFonda continues to serve outstandinFonda continues to serve outstanding food and margaritas. My friend said her huevos rancheros were the best she's ever had!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ask for the Garden!I love Fonda. The food was fresh, yummy and the drinks were good. Only two things: our appetizers came out close to the time of the main entrée and the rice and beans portions were small especially since two of us had ordered and they combined it. One more thing...the reservationist was rude on the phone when I booked and when I came in.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place it's myI love this place it's my 2nd best brunch and dinner spots in Brooklyn4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an amazing meal.

Which was unfortunate, because I wanted happy hour and they won't allow it at a table. That was a bit of an upset and kind of obnoxious, but the food was absolutely fantastic, as was the atmosphere.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mexican in NYC.Brilliant, high cuisine Mexican food (and this from a Californian who turns his nose up at the largely feeble NYC attempts at the genre). Fresh, truly excellent, and with distinctly modern touch. This is not your mom's gloppy frijoles place! Only downside is that the place is rock concert loud.
Notwithstanding the generally spicy and "new Mexican" take, there seemed to be a lot of happy kids at our relatively early dining time.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
