All the Margarita's were great!
All the Margarita's were great! They accommodated our large Birthday group last minute and gave us some free appetizers. The guacamole was great, good salsa, and all the food was excellent, this is a gem!

Fun "quatro de Mayo"
Despite being super busy, service and food were great. Tasty margaritas. Not too Americanized -- spicy dishes were spicy, light on the cheese/sauce factor. Nice addition to the weak Mexican food scene in Seattle.

Fresh food and great spot
Two couples recently had dinner on a warm evening at Fogon. Our table was up against the huge open window on Pine Street which was perfect temperature and made for some interesting people watching (but we jumped everytime a skateboarder road by because it was really loud). I liked that they served the margaritas in vintage style champage glasses but gave you the entire cocktail shaker so you could refill your own glass at will (YUM)! We ordered the carne asada, the fish street tacos, and the veggie fajitas. Everyone cleaned their plates. All of the food was incredibly fresh!!! We ordered the salsa sampler and you could tell it had been prepared that morning. I highly recommend Fogon!

Have been here 3 times since they opened and I am always happy when I leave. The service is prompt and attentive, the food is good, and overall I think Fogon is reasonably priced. Of the 3 "nicer" Mexican places on cap hill (Fogon, Poquitos, Barrio) I think Fogon has the best food, widest menu options, best value, and most consistent service. I do think the margaritas/mixed drinks at all 3 restaurants are good, but would argue that barrio has the best drinks/bartenders.

Friendly, flexible and delicious
We booked our Saturday night rez at the last minute the night before. Late Saturday, we realized we were going to have more people... they were very gracious and let us increase our group size even though OpenTable showed them as booked solid. All of us got different margaritas (ultimate, jalapeno, citrus) and they were all delicious...food was also awesome, especially the street tacos and the ceviche. Wasn't quite as stoked about the seafood enchiladas, but mainly because they seemed comparatively heavy - the flavors were still yum. Waiter was super attentive and friendly. Only downside was noise level, it's very loud when crowded and we had to shout to hear each other. Will return!

Loved the street tacos. They are the best and the sauce is delicious. My friends also seemed to enjoy their food :)

If you're looking for real Mexican food you're at the right place.
Everything was very tasteful !
I would definitely return to FOGON if I go back to Seatlle.

The food, the service, and the surroundings were great. The only bad thing was that the place was really loud. They need to put some noise tiles on their high ceilings. Otherwise, outstanding.

Great Mexican Food!
We decided to try this place out based on all of the good reviews. The food and service was great! I decided to break my usual routine and tried the enchiladas with shrimp and crab in them. To my surprise they were really good!

My friend and I were craving Mexican food so I turned to google for recommendations. Fogon had many high reviews and a great looking menu. I made a 7:00 pm reservation on a Friday night and they had a table waiting for us. The food and the drinks were delicious! Our server was attentive and had good recommendations. I can't wait to go back!
