Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always good here...that's why we come back. Only annoyance was trying to get our bill...took a long time."

  • "I've been to Frida's many times for lunch/dinner and love the food, this was our first brunch visit .. their 11:00 starting time for brunch doesn't fit out schedule. But wow, their version of eggs benedict and huevos rancheros are SOOOO good. Just like almost all of their dinner items, their are deep and multiple layers of flavor that just are so much more than you're anticipating. The dishes are a bit on the lighter side but that is more of a positive than a negative and you can always fill up on their fresh chips & salsa."

  • "They do a very nice job on the food and presentation, but just not exactly my style. It was somewhere in between Spanish style cooking like La Bodega and Mexican food, and doesn't quite hit the mark on either. The restaurant atmosphere was nice and staff was very attentive, just not my favorite menu selection. "

  • "Fridas is our go to place. With its amazing repertoire of elegant, authentic Mexican fare to its exemplary service, Fridas is a jewel. We eat there three or four times a month."

  • "Our table was not ready for our 7:30 scheduled dining appointment, which irked me, as I had especially scheduled a time, and personally visited the restaurant to enquire about birthday recognitions. We had to wait about 15 minutes beyond our scheduled time for a table. The food was good, but the service was slow. Overall the company made it a good evening, and I will go back again. But what schedule times if they cannot be honored?"

  • "We'd been to Frida's before and thought it would be a great place for a lunch RESERVATION between soccer games. Unfortunately we waited ages to give our drink orders, the water arrived with our iced teas after we'd been seated for 20 minutes, the food order was chaotic at best with members of our party effectively being told they couldn't have what they wanted followed by our having to reorder by plate number later, long after our menus had been taken, because our waiter, who failed to write anything down, forgot our order and had to bring help to retake it. After nearly 1.5 hours our food began arriving randomly and with errors, 1 plate coming so late everyone else had already finished eating. Only half of us ever had our drinks refilled. "

  • "Sunday Brunch for five people - waited at table 30+ minutes for drinks - waited another 50+ minutes for food. Owner comped all meals - that was wonderful and not necessary - the food was so delicious I did not agree to comping all meals and paid some of the bill. Will think about trying this restaurant on another day other than Sunday."

  • "I've been to Frida's many times before. The service was slow & spotty. The brunch menu was disappointing and we overheard the table of 7 next to us complaining about how long it was taking for their food. They had 4 kids w/ them and when it FINALLY came out the bacon wasn't cooked and other than a slight apology NO sign of a manager and he only took the bacon off. Really? Our food was a little more timely but again bacon not cooked & really not very good. We left we a bad taste in our mouths & will not come back due to the recovery vs. the actually experience. You cannot nail it everytime but it's how you recover that matters. The server was either not trained well or clueless to cues. "

  • "We loved this restaurant! It met all our expectations. Food, Service and price were all in line and our evening was outstanding. First we stopped in the bar area for a margarita and the bartender was friendly and made suggestions that were great. We were seated at our table quickly and service was prompt.Everything we ordered was served at the proper temperature and was delicious !"

  • "This is NOT cheese drenched Tex-Mex. it's seriously good Mexican cuisine. The Mole sauce is phenomenal. Although not on the menu, they'll put it on the chicken enchiladas. Don't miss the Arroz con Pollo on the lunch menu. The best I've ever tasted. "
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "This remains one of our favorite spots and go-to places for a great authentic mexican meal. So different than what you get at the cheese & more cheese places. We did the Mahi Mahi (excellent), Chili En Nogada (amazing), & the always superb chicken tacos."

  • "Went Frida's for brunch with my brother & we both agreed that going to Frida's is so worth the drive from the Downtown just to indulge in what Frida has to offer!! The drinks were delicious, refreshing, tasty and well priced. The food was just so appealing we couldn't decide what to order so we chose 3 entrees to split (Yes, we were very hungry & longing for the food from "back home"), and please do yourself a favor and save room for dessert. You will love it. I have no idea why there is all the buzz for other "Mexican" restaurants down at Westport which are ridiculously expensive, have bad service and the food is just "meh". This is by far the best Mexican food in the KC area. We can't wait to go back."

  • "Frida's shows that fine Mexican cuisine can pair with wine and is far more diverse than typical Tex-Mex combos. They are adding event space for up to a hundred people."

  • "The food es muy delisioso!!! The inventive entrees are inspired."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The menu had a lot of options, and the entree I chose was excellent and very well prepared (the scallops were cooked perfectly). Although there was some issues getting our food out at the same time, our wait staff offered us desserts on the house (which were excellent!). I definitely would like to go back and try some of the other dishes."

  • "Food is always delicious, but the Margaritas are outstanding."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Guacamole was great. Entrees were good, but pricey. Small portions. Service was poor, very slow. Never had our water glasses refilled. Had to ask to order, ask for water, ask for check. Made reservation for 7:45 because Open Table said that was the only time available, however when we got there, there where many tables open and available."

  • "We visited at Saturday lunch. There were few customers, yet we waited to be seated because no one was around to greet us (walls around the entry make it difficult to know if anyone sees you've arrived). Our server was pleasant, but rather disinterested, mechanical. The green rice was delicious; the rest of my food (chicken w achiote) was just ok. Nothing special. My date's chicken in mole was similar. They've done a great job with Frida Kahlo art throughout the restaurant. The books on display made me want to curl up and enjoy them. Concept is a winner, but the dining experience needs improvment.."

  • "I have eaten many Mexican Restaurants this is by far the best ever."

  • "Every time we dine at Frida's we are more impressed by the offerings. The servers and staff are eager to describe the menu and encourage you to try something new. There is a passion in the dishes at Frida's that will keep us coming back and the staff is easily the best in our area."

  • "The service was bad, the restaurant was not that busy but I always felt like an afterthought. Ordered the "Valentines" dinner special, and everything took way longer than it should have. 5 minutes after ordering 2 glasses of champagne arrive, wait another 10 minutes then the soup comes after only 3 minutes the entrees arrive. It was not good, really makes me have second thoughts about ever going here again, too many other options."

  • "I like Frida's because the flavors and ingredients are fresh."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "One of our go-to's, especially for the chicken tacos. But the Queso Fundido appetizer was great as well as the rest of our dishes! The Frida's margarita is a personal favorite albeit pricey. Generally service is very good but this time just a bit off, but we weren't in a hurry so still a wonderful dinner."

  • "We had a wonderful time at Frida's. The food was excellent and the drink list was interesting with well-crafted choices. Our waitress was wonderful and attentive; we were celebrating my brother's birthday and she did everything she could to make it a wonderful experience. Would highly recommend Frida's to everyone."

  • "An outstanding restaurant with some exception authentic Mexican dishes and a creative staff. Frida's is a destination for true authentic Mexican Food lovers. Wonderful / Creative menu means try something different each time- we have not been disappointed. Properly prepared Mexican food can take a bit longer but it is always worth it- take your time and enjoy. If you want Tex-Mex, this is not the place for you. If you want Mexican Food, Frida's is a wonderful spot. Highly recommended."
