Celebrating Administrative Assistants' Day four of us had lunch at Frida. Foe two people it was a first, and they were pleasantly surprised. The food and service were great. I'll be returning with my wife for dinner very soon.

Food was unique. Comment
Food was unique. Comment on table was can't go there if you are craving real mexican food, most like chile verde. One of my guest wanted chips and salsa, shocked that you did not have any for dinner. It would of been good as a compliment.
I mayself thought food was okay. I would like options for sides. Drinks were great! Although, need to be in a margarita glass. Flan was great!!

My husband and I want to Frida's to celebrate a special occasion. As always, the food, beverage and service was phenomenal. Our server, Gretchen was awesome!! She listened to our preferences and speciall dietary needs. Based on the information we gave her, she provided suggestions for both of us to enjoy :) Her recommendats where DELICIOUS! I shared the special celebration with Gretchen and she gave my husband a free dessert :) I couldn't have asked for anything more!!

This place offers a nice and different twist on Mexican cuisine. It's much fancier than what you would find at other Mexican restaurants but also a little pricey. Overall a great place for special occasion like cinco de mayo!
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
There were 4 of us and we all had something different. The flavors were outstanding, thank you.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the 2nd time I've been to Frida Bistro and both times have been amazing. The staff is friendly and courteous and the food is to die for! I will be back whenever I have the time to drive out (not very close to my house).

Upscale Mexican cuisine
Not your typical chips/salsa place. Excellent food and dining experience. Margaritas were exquisite.

Mother's Day Dinner
My husband and I took my mom and dad here for a mother's day dinner. It was a great restaurant and perfect for the occasion. My only complaint is that it is in an "interesting" part of town. I'd definitely go again though, hence the 5 star rating. :-)
I like restaurants that branch out into places like this because if definitely improves the neighborhood!

Bold, Unusual Menu
Frida's is the kind of place I love visiting--it had already been recommended to us by several people and it didn't disappoint. The menu is not so large, but each of the featured items is unusual, a bit exotic and yet still adheres to the "Mexican" theme. The big list of margaritas is fun . . . so is the brightly colored, all "Frida" Kahlo decor. But what shines most is the food, with beautiful presentation and bold, delicious flavor (not everything is chile hot).
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
We just kept eating the appetizers. The buffalo meat was te best I've had. A must visit.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing food and great environment. An experience that is truly a treat.

Isle in the Winderness
First time at Frida but won't be the last. Food quality, service staff, ambiance were all exceptional. Don't be put off by it's location (commercial warehouses surround it); just keep driving west on 7th south until you see the mural on the side of the building. Then, prepare to be impressed with what happens when you open the front door. Loved it!
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Given the location, Frida Bistro was a great surprise. All the drinks and food were outstanding. Nice presentation and delicious.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Again, Frida comes through. It was our fifth wedding anniversary. We arrived, were greeted warmly and with a Happy Anniversary (I indicated this on my reservation) and it went great from there. Kristin did a a bulbous job serving us. The ceviche and calamari were excellent. Scallops for my wife, shrimp for me.... Two great choices. Margaritas were perfect (as usual). The evening was perfect. We enjoy Frida Bistro and share this spot with our friends.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like Frida, bold and unique.
The food was great, a combination of authentic Mexican flavors with a modern touch. As you bite on the appetizer your palate take you back to a familiar place. The main course takes those classical Mexican dishes and gives them a new dimension. The flavors are bold, yet they show some refrain to satisfy the international clientele.

experience of salt lake
We heard about frida bistro and love to try new things, especially when it comes to mexican food. what a delight and knock out food. we loved everything about it. i have dietary restrictions and was guided along by our waitress and enjoyed trying new and exotic choices. i had a sea bass dish unlike anything i have ever had. what a gem of a restaurant and thanks for not smothering everything in cheese as most mexican restaurants. we have lived in utah for 15 yrs. and have had some "good" meals, but this takes the blue ribbon. we cannot say enough good things about it.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was brilliant, Server meh
Lets just say, that if you are a foodie, you need to dine here! We had a great time! All the people who worked there, minus our particular server was extremely friendly and helpful! We could tell that our server was not happy she had to wait on us (for some particular reason) but all of the other servers, hostesses, etc were lovely!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'll Be Back
Oh so tasty! Try anything it's delicious! And don't forget to end the meal with their coffee that they have especially roasted for them!
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ok, the neighborhood is a little sketchy, but everything else about Frida Bistro is just about perfect. The ambience is great, decor is lovely, service is excellent, and food and drinks are incredible!

The restaurant was just fantastic and the food was superb.

Great flavors and unique mixes
We have eaten here before but this may have been the best time of all. The margaritas were tasty, the appetizers were excellent and everyone enjoyed their entrees. We had guests in visiting from Phoenix and they loved everything as well. Best was last!!! Incredible deserts. My wife and I shared the Mole lava cake with black pepper ice cream. Sounds like the strangest thing on the planet but it was incredible. Over the top delicious. I highly recommend
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great upscale mexican restaurant where quality of product comes first. Service and food have been excellent both times I have frequented.

Food Carries the Day
My wife and I chose Frida Bistro for our anniversary dinner. We've had their incredible mole sauce for lunch, but never dinner. I was sad to see that the mole is reserved mostly for lunch. The good news is that this forced me out of my mole routine, and I discovered some of the most amazing, unique, and complex flavors I've ever had in SLC. We had the mole chicken meatballs, and I all but licked the bowl clean. But my tuna was perfect, especially with the roasted melon salad. My wife's bacon wrapped chicken had one of the most incredible sauces I've ever had. And the flan was perfect, in both texture and flavor, which is crucial for flan.

Always unique and rewarding
Frida's is the challenge to all the preconceptions about Mexican food and is always a worthwhile and fulfilling food adventure. The staff are terrific and the ambiance, both inside and outside, warm, quirky, and cosy. Outdoor street dining can sometimes be a nightmare of noise and car lights flashing by but the rather obscure location is actually a benefit here as there is almost no passing traffic, at least in the evening. The decor indoors is truly one of a kind and the mix of crazy and bold colors works to both stimulate and make one feel secure in a homey setting for talking. And the food is just outrageously good and varied, even for the vegetarian there are courses that feel carefully crafted and inventive. Love this place!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Frida Bistro - Yum!
Great find and wonderful spot to have a very tasteful meal with friends. We'll be back!
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Five stars across the board
Frida Bistro is one of those off-the-beaten-path restaurants that is worth finding. The dishes are well-prepared and artfully presented. You can get small plates or go for appetizers and dinner. The menu is concise, but gives you plenty options.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always have a great dinner
Always have a great dinner there. Food and sauces are very innovative.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was outstanding. The wait staff was very attentive! The appetizers were creative and tasty. Our main courses were well seasoned. The chilli rub was was perfect for the tuna. The tuna was seared perfectly. The steak was properly medium rare and the beet remoulade was outstanding. Deserts were generously portioned and verging on sweet genious.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceeded my expectations
It's the name what attracted me. I was mesmerized by the decor - it's all about Frida Khalo then we ordered our food from a great selection. Food was amazing! Nothing like your usual 'Mexican restaurant'. Loved everything about it.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Inventive take on Mexican
Frida Bistro was an amazing dining experience for a foodie. Try the R & R margarita with raspberries and rosemary or the passion fruit with cinnamon and sugar dipped rim to start. The buffalo tostada appetizer was amazing! My sister got the pork carnitas with chipotle mashed potatoes and I had the sea bass with risotto. The presentation on everything was colorful and the food was amazing!
It's off the beaten path, but definitely worth the beautiful atmosphere and the side road makes it nice if you want to eat outside with virtually no noise. All foodies must come and try it!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent food and service
highly recommend sea bass and shrimp dishes, also calamari

We've had several experiences here-one downer and others very good. We enjoyed tonight very much.

Eclectic Food Combinations
Eclectic Food Combinations done right! Try the ceviche and the lamb chops!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Out of the three couples, it was two couples anniversary, 28 & 29 years. Food and service were awesome, what a delightful place to have a dinner. We took our time and enjoyed the evening.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is without a doubt one
This is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Salt Lake. A real gem.

Excellent Food & Service
Great food for a great price, fantastic service and amazing drinks!

Went with another couple. Our server was very attentive & knowledgeable!
Food was amazing, & though it was pricey, the portions were pretty sizeable. I took leftovers home :)
nice experience & great ambiance, we'll be back!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
What took me so long?
Tremendous evening with a great food and very special service. We were very appreciative for the recommendations and knowledge of the menu. Added together, a most enjoyable evening. This was our first visit but we will definitely be back, and soon.

A FUN NIGHT
I SURPRISED MY DAUGHTER. SHE LOVES FRIEDA'S WORK. SHE ENJOYED THE PAINTINGS, ETC. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND THE SERVICE WAS GREAT. THANKS
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Frida Bistro is not your average Mexican restaurant. Forget about greasy nachos and heavy refried beans. The menu is full of interesting dishes that blend a variety of flavors and are absolutely delicious. The calamari appetizer is amazing. It's dusted in blue corn and comes with a jalapeno dip that has just the right amount of heat. For $11, you get a nice serving for 4, or a very generous serving for 2. The avocado soup (topped with crab) is also fabulous. Entrees are also good sized and utterly delicious. Save room for dessert because you'll want to indulge. The ice cream sundae (not their name for it) is huge and oh so good, with sauteed plantains. Delicious!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend and I discovered this little gem a few months ago and decided it would be the perfect place for Boss's Day lunch.
Most of our party really enjoyed the food - one person was not as open to the fresh new Mexican flavors that Frida specializes in. She preferes Taco Bell tacos...but did really enjoy the Tres Salsa appetizer.
The wait staff was fantastic and everyone enjoyed the original art and vibe of Frida's.
We will be back and look forward to trying Frida's new seasonal menu.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This meal was on my top-5 best meals ever. The mole was the most interesting I've tasted, the margaritas were perfect, and everything else was just awesome. Interesting, nice big portions, and amazingly savory flavors. Also, the music was great and just the right volume.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
High end Mexican food--a lot of seafood options. Portions not meant to be shared. Fun atmosphere. Not so loud that you can't carry on a conversation. Small so a reservation would be recommended. They were able to accommodate a group of six, and would probably be willing to go slightly larger. Service was great and food was good. The zucchini loaf dish was very sweet--almost more of a dessert than an entree. Overall a great experience.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love Frida's Bistro
Beautiful and delicious food. Ambience is wonderful. Service is also wonderful.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique Food, Great Service
Came here for a business dinner and was very impressed. The service was great, responsive and personable. The food was very unique with bold flavors and great presentation. The chocolate cake and tres leches was a perfect ending to the meal.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing and Authentic
Frida Bistro was the perfect spot for an anniversary date. The food was interesting and absolutely delicious. All of our dishes were full of flavor, beautifully presented, and came out fairly quickly. Don't forget to try the margaritas!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service with no rush
We were out to dinner with friends that we hadn't seen in quite a while and did get the wonderful experience we were hoping for. The waiter was excellent with all requests and did not rush us at all so we were able to catch up on so much lost time. The menu is amazing. All four of us ordered something different and there were no disappointments. It was all perfectly done and presented - and delicious. Thank you Frida Bistro!!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always amazing food and service.

Great as always
I love Freida Bistro. The food is always wonderful the people are friendly. It doesn't get any better for a special occasion.

Prices doubled past couple of years
This was one of SLC's trendy spots always packed on Friday and Saturday nights. They have raised prices considerably and an evening out for 4 was about $350 this last visit. The food is still very good, the kitchen inventive, and the service attentive. I guess one could say it is also good that the place was half empty at 7:30 and we were the last customers in the restaurant by 9:30. They seem to have lost their customer base, which was a lot of couples and groups out for dinner with prices that were moderately upscale.
We enjoyed an exceptional preparation of mussels, the salads were substantial and interesting, and two of us had the pepper steak special, which was nicely done. Desserts were also wonderful. Hope it survives.
