A little on the expensive side. Drinls served in very small glasses.

Most delicious guacamole ever!
Most delicious guacamole ever! The chicken tostadas and tortilla soup are also favorites. I have always loved every item ordered at Frida!

Excellent and authentic Mexican
Excellent and authentic Mexican cuisine but be careful of the hot sauces, when they ask if you want it hot from 1 to 10, we said 8 and got burned, but deliciously so.

Frida-a Mexican gem
This was our second visit. The food was as good as we remembered. The drink prices-a tad expensive. Our server was very attentive and super friendly. The food came out as ordered and quite quickly. Excellent chips and salsa. Wish the guacamole portions were a bit bigger (only because it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!) Will be back!

Two thumbs up!
This place has a very warm inviting feel and the servers were friendly as well as helpful in explaining menu items.
Mango Margarita was tasty with its chilli salted rim. Duck tacos were delicious and the "Little Bites" items are quite clever and I definatly need to go back to take advantage of the full tasting...

Terrific Mexican Food
We had a great experience at Frida. The food was excellent and the service very attentive. Definitely a more upscale Mexican food offering which is a nice change from many typical Mexican restaurants in Toronto. Good wine list and very reasonably priced. We will definitely go back.

Frida Restaurant was an interesting
Frida Restaurant was an interesting place for dinner. The setting resembles the famous Blue House where Frida Kahlo lived her extraordinary life with Diego Rivera and where they both painted. The walls are blue and there are several posters and photos of Frida and Diego. The menu was extensive and the food authentic, well presented and very good. The Mole Pueblo, which I have had frequently in Mexico, was comparable in taste and texture. Their drink and wine list were good. Service was very slow and erratic and we had to wait for long periods between courses and had to ask about them several times. The music was loud but did not have a Mexican theme, which was disappointing. The restaurant is small but full and people waiting.

toronto's best mexican
,Toronto isn't know for its good mexican restaurants. Most tend to fall flat. Frida's, however, shows that it has some of the most authentic mexican flavours. Their churros are to die for!! And the tamales are excellent. Being a vegetarian, it is hard to find good mexican food in toronto. While choices are limited for vegetarians, there is enough selection to keep you happy. My fellow guests were happy with their food - the steak however was a little bristley though. The duck special was excellent, and the chicken mole was good.
I recommend Frida for a more authentic dining experience. The wait staff were good!

I chose this menu for my husbands birthday because of the authentic Mexican cuisine. He was blown away by his entire meal and I was happy with my decision. I am a bit of a picky eater so some of the tastes were too strong for my palette but overall the meal was great. The drinks were phenomenal. I definitely recommend the JazzBerry! Great service.

Very Good ...BUT...rushed!!
Very good food, nice place, but we got our food VERY quickly. That was a turn off. They did not need the table after us, and the restaurant had empty tables. So, no idea as to why we were rushed by receiving our food back to back with almost no break in between. It reflected in my tip to our waiter. This would have made sense IF they had another reservation after us. I myself am a Pastry Chef at a downtown 5 star hotel, I shared this with my colleagues. They won't be running there.

Had dinner with a friend! Amazing Mexican food at its best starting with Homemade Corn Chips, then appetizer of mouth watering, zesty, fresh Ceviche, followed by a main course of Grilled Halibut cooked to perfection. Never have I had such sweet, juicy, succulent meat flake off perfectly each time. For dessert, Goat Milk Churros. Delicious, lovely, homey!

Frida has fine food and more
The food is simple classic Mexican cuisine prepared and served well in a warm romantic atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and the decor is naturally a tribute to Frida, the Mexican painter with reproductions of her colourful surrealistic work everywhere. The staff are friendly and proficient and there is even parking readily available.

Great Mexican Food!
Authentic Mexican food and a pleasant atmosphere. Would definitely go back again!

Went to Frida's during summerliciou
Went to Frida's during summerlicious, two people.
Appetizer, entree and dessert was $20 per person.
We had the empanada and tortilla soup for the app, both great.
For the entrees we both had the fish tacos. Unfortunately we were not too satisfied with these. There was too much batter, not enough fish, and the batter wasn't seasoned enough. The salsa on top was great but the salsa on the side could use some heat.
For dessert we had the churros and aroz con leche, the churros seemed too fried and the dulce de leche not as authentic but the aroz con leche was perfect, a bigger portion would've been nice!
Overall a great experience and would go back to try other items on the menu.
Menu also pricey.

Went there for summerlicious
Went there for summerlicious dinner menu. loved the food. plating was great. drinks could have been better. over all a 4/5. The only downfall was the waitress was a little rude and made us feel rushed reminding us that the kitchen closes at 7:30pm. Never rush your customers. The kitchen should stay open as long as it takes.

Great Food, Expensive Drinks
The food was excellent and so was the service. One complaint however were the drinks. For a Mexican restaurant not to have a pitcher of Sangria available- and only selling by the glass, was disappointing. And the SMALL glass was $9. I found myself telling people afterwards how great the food was, but that the drinks were a "ripoff"!

food is awesome,
service is very good,
need a bit more of 'energy' in the decoration, Friday has so many items and ideas for a great atmosphere.
the restaurant right now can look sad sometimes.
