Diner Reviews
  • "Each Easter, we've been going to the brunch at La Fonda del Bosque and enjoying their varied menu. This year we were disappointed that they did not serve up any breakfast type of food. The lunch type of food was good, but I noticed that this year the selection was fewer. I also noticed that the crowd of people was not there this year. I hope they bring back a true brunch with both breakfast and lunch type items on the table next year. "

  • "I had Easter brunch here with my neighbors and we couldn't have had a better time, nor could we have picked a better restaurant. The food selection was outstanding and scrumptious which was not only my opinion. It is so nice to know that when I recommend going to La Fonda del Bosque that those friends who come with me share in my delights about the place as well. The added touch was the guitar player in the room who added an extra sense of comfort to enjoying our delicious meal. I rank La Fonda del Bosque the best restaurant in town!"

  • "La Fonda del Bosque is a convenient place to dine if you are headed to a show at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, but it is not necessarily fine dining. The restaurant has more of the feel of a high-end cafeteria. The menu is very limited and they only have a beer and wine license. The restaurant staff is very nice but are not necessarily trained at waiting tables. That said, the salmon and mashed potatoes are excellent - the other items on the menu appear to be hit or miss (although we were told that it was only the chef's second night so the quality of the other food may improve)."

  • "It was a pleasure to dine at La Fonda del Bosque, beautifully located in the Hispanic Cultural Center, prior to attending an opera in the same facility. It was the restaurant's first night to introduce a new menu, and the changes were excellent ones. The prix fixe menu centered on a beautifully prepared salmon dish, with a salad of brie stuffed sweet potatoes and jicama with a light dressing, and concluded with a tasty flan. I had lamb which was perfectly cooked with sides of a vegetable napoleon and tasty polenta. Both our waitress, Crystal, and the manager could not have been more attentive. For those who may have gone previously and not been totally pleased, I'd encourage them to visit again and try the delectable new choices."

  • "We had dinner here prior to a show. Our reservation was at 5:30 and we were the first people there for dinner, and it was very cold in the restaurant. The service was excellent and the menu was limited but with enough selection for everyone in our small party to find something they liked. The food was fine but not outstanding. It is nice to have a place to eat where you can go right into a show without having to drive."

  • "On the grounds of Albuquerque's National Hispanic Cultural Center, La Fonda del Bosque is ideal for dinning before seeing a show in the nearby theatre. The menu offers both a prix fixe option, and a la carte. I was extremely pleased with the Prix Fixe green salad with mixed seafood, Beef Short Ribs in a port wine reduction sauce with garlic-y mashed potatoes and tender in-season fresh asparagus, followed by a generous slice of bread pudding. Dinner before a show is so much more relaxing when you don't have to keep your eye on the time, or have to get back in your car and drive to your show venue. My friends and I were able to savor every last sip of wine before leisurely walking across the plaza to enjoy our show."

  • "Went to this restaurant for valentine's day. We were disappointed that their menu was extremely limited (soup and filet mignon was on menu but apparently sold out). The best part was the main course. Dessert bar was lacking (only a few slices/available options). GREAT SERVICE made the romantic blow easier to deal with."

  • "I had high hopes for Fonda del Bosque after reading very good reviews about the restaurant. I made a 9pm reservation for the $75/couple Valentine's Day four course meal. Unfortunately the restaurant had not prepared well for the event. They were out of one of the two appetizer options, and one of the four entree options. Also, from the beginning it was clear that our server was looking forward to the night being over. My wife and I felt extremely rushed, and were not even asked for a drink order before the waitress wanted our entree order. Everything was extremely quick, which would ordinarily be fine, but it just felt very rushed. Also, my pork came out very dry. It had the feel of a catered meal, where everything was cooked hours before."

  • "I went to La Fonda for Valentine's Day and it was the most wonderful experience! We were received by (the owner's?) kids who gave us a rose and the little boy took us to our seats. The service was prompt, very friendly, and super attentive. The owner visited with all the tables and was extremely nice. The FOOD...omg the FOOD was delicious!!! Best filet mignon we've had in town!!! And the fish was delicious, tender, and very flavorful. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone and we'll be coming back for more :)."

  • "Dinner here was the start of a great Valentine's evening. Our server was a very nice and funny woman who improved the experience. All of the staff was attentive and pleasant. The food was awesome. It was the first time I had been here and booked it based on reviews I read, and it lived up to my expectations."

  • "We have had several pleasant meals at La Fonda del Bosque, some have been the brunch buffet others just meals with friends. The food has never disappointed us and the service is friendly, prompt and very good. There is a musician playing softly in the background which is delightful as well. We highly recommend La Fonda del Bosque."

  • "We ate Sunday Brunch at the restaurant before the Don Quixote ballet on 12 Jan 2014. We were expecting awesomeness as the online reviews were all positive. Boy were they right! Everyone gets unlimited smoked salmon, a shrimp quiche with green chili (not hot), a Cuban version of French toast, berry crepes, and a huge fresh fruit platter-- all delicious. There was also a small but elegant dessert bar. Every dessert was reduced to the most exquisite essence of the flavors -- tiramisu, flan, petits fours. Each diner also received one entrée made-to-order from a brunch menu -- my husband and I selected Paella and Eggs Benedict. Both came with chorizo. Presentation and the portion was just right. Also, a live spanish guitarist. Nice!!!"

  • "We really enjoyed the Sunday brunch. The quiche, French toast and the paella entre were all excellent. The décor was bright and pretty and the guitar player added just the right touch. I would recommend this spot for a delicious and relaxing treat on Sunday morning!"

  • "Extensive Sunday brunch before NHCC classical concert. Hints of New Mexican chilis but fresh fruits, excellent seafood quiche, lox, cheeses, crepes, plus choice of 6 entrees fresh from kitchen. Coffee and generous fruit juice serving. Wines available. Walked out door to the NHCC concert site."

  • "I stopped in here for lunch and was very surprised about the quality of meal I got for the price. I had the 3 course business meal for $15 and loved every course. I had a Caesar salad, fish tacos, and a Carmel cheesecake. I would recommend all three."
