La Fonda on Main
A Hidden GemGreat service from Andy and great food from the chef made for a great meal at this hidden gem. We highly recommend the shrimp nachos(incredible!),spinach salad(beautiful and delicious),fish tacos(I could drink the green cilantro/avacado side sauce), shrimp enchiladas(full of creamy,well seasoned flavor) and duck tacos. Even the queso was better than average. Chocolate flan was good but could be creamier. Tres cafe is a special post-meal treat (with a nice Mexican "kick" at the bottom of the bowl!). The restaurant is lovely and the patio looks inviting for non-summer-sweltering days. La Fonda is the perfect non-touristy, upscale place to bring out of town guests. We look forward to return visits to sample the lunch and brunch offerings.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Guest Loved La Fonda on Main!From start to finish our luncheon dining experience at La Fonda on Main was wonderful. They gave us a good table outside; our Greeters were gracious and our waiter was knowledgeable and efficient; and finally the food was well-prepared, delicious and served hot. This was the fourth time that I have dined at La Fonda and each time it was a memorable (in a good way) experience. My guest, who had never dined there, was effusive with her compliments of the restaurant. There are many Tex-Mex restaurants in San Antonio. La Fonda on Main clearly deserves to be listed as one of the top five.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLa FondaGreat meal at a great price. Upgrade and get the 3 salsa tasting, worth every bit of $3. Also get the queso loaded, its only a dollar more and well worth it. Had the Mole Enchilada's and they were perfect. Not too sweet and with plenty of deep mole' goodness. The presentation was outstanding, no other restaurant in town presents Mexican food this well.
I will be back.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMalways deliciouswe have been going to la fonda on main for years and always enjoy dining there. the food and service are always 5 star and we love the romantic atmosphere. the brunch specials are consistently wonderful.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLong time favoriteCappy always does a great job for quality and consistency of his food at this and all of his restaurants.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWow never gave 5 stars in all categVisiting San Antonio and had gotten no recommendations. Based on Trip Advisor we went to La Fonda. Beautiful restaurant, server could explain every ingredient on the menu. I do not put Mexican food on my top 5' but if its like this, I will. Outdoor patio very tropical. Had them order a cab as we did not rent a car. The manager saw us waiting and told us to get him if the cab was late.

The service is always impeccable and every dish is delicious! Ask for patio seating whenever the weather permits!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOut ofTown GuestsWe had a lovely long dinner out in the courtyard with friends from northern California. They were delighted to discover that San Antomorels is much more than the over crowded, hyper-marketed Riverwalk scene. The watermelon infused margaritas were a great starter.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Introduction to San AntonioWe brought friends who had never been to San Antonio for dinner, and we had a wonderful time. The food was unique and excellent, the service was friendly, and we never felt pressured to leave, even as closing time approached. They also gladly split the check several ways.
