Great food - great atmosphere!
The food at Fridas is consistently good - not the usual Tex-Mex! Service is very friendly and a cozy feel to the restaurant.

Great contemporary Mexican
Great contemporary Mexican food. We really enjoyed the variety of great tasting food. The service was a little confused as we had a group of 16 and they did not know who ordered what and did not pay enough attention to our group. If you are looking for great food with a very friendly atmosphere you can't go wrong with Frida's

I LOVE their food and I just
I LOVE their food and I just wish the ambiance was better or I know i would go more. They have a good happy hour, but the bar feels like a sports bar in a way and it was dead. The ambiance just doesn't do it for me, but the food is OH SO GOOD! Our server was snacking on some friends food and considering there was only one other table she wans't that attentive...but again the FOOD!

Not Tex-Mex just wonderful.
Not typical mexican food. The poblano peppers were stuffed with pork, rice and cranberries and topped with a cream sauce... Delicious!! Served with a green rice, also delicious. We also had charcoal broiled tacos with mildly spiced chicken, sautéed onions, guacomole and cilantro. Nothing was greasy and spice levels of the dishes we selected were mild but flavorful. There are spicier dishes on the menu. We were dining late on a mid-week night, so the restaurant was pretty empty and thus quiet. Our first visit so we don't know the normal ambience.

A great "upscale" dining experience

Always a hit!
We love this place, even. After they have moved we still frequent them! The whole staff welcome you as if you are family, and Ivan, well where do I begin? This is a man that is extremely passionate about everything Frida's! He always goes the extra mile and makes us feel wonderful! It's hard to resist the specials once he describes them, and boy are they worth it!!

Our family enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day Brunch at Fridas. I made reservations on Open Table about 4 days in advance. We were seated promptly when we arrived. The service was excellent and the food was unique and delicous! It was comfortable and not too noisy so we were able to talk. This resturant is a true gem!

Fantastic Food at Frida's
Our third visit to Frida's included two twenty-somethings and it was every bit as delicious as the first two times. This was our first time ordering tamales and they were amazing! The Chile en Negado is the hands down favorite dish but certainly not the only one we love. The presentation is lovely, the background on the dishes is interesting and the wine pairing is great. Lots of opportunities to have new and delicious taste experiences. My only regret is that we waited so long to try this fantastic restaurant.

'Good' kind of Contemporary dining
Contemporary dining can conjur up pretentious airs, gimmicky dishes, overtly trendy decor and experiences overly reliant on feeling cool rather than truly satisfied. 'Frida's' manages to delivery solid tradition-inspired Mexican cuisine in a modern atmosphere that still feels genuine, not forced. It may have some starkness in corners, but overall, the warm service, great bar selection and spotlight dishes like their chicken in mole sauce and corn milk 'ice cream' keep folks coming back for the fundamentals--a good dining experience all round.

Once again amazed.....
I absolutely love this place... the food, the service, and ownership are the best. You never leave hungry and you are never disappointed. Real, authentic, Meixcian Food. The Cheese Fundido and the Pork Tacos are to die for. We try to make every opportunity to go... and they are (have) expanded. Ivan (and all of the staff) is the best and truly is a great guy. Give this place a try.

This was my first visit to Frida's and it won't be the last! My husband and I went last week before going to Starlight and couldn't have been more pleased. We were seated promptly at our reservation time, and had a relaxing dinner without worrying about being on time for the performance. I recommend the poblano peppers with scallops! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his fish tacos. We got a take out menu so we can study the entrees before our next visit!

Menu has a great variety of choices. Everything has an interesting twist as far as flavor enhancements goes--even the more typical Mexican fare. Had a wonderful fish dish with great cilantro sauce. Will return.

Last time we went.....
The last time we went was in March. We had been to Frida's several times at the 151st street establishment and the food and service was quite good. We tried the new place in March and our experience was less than desirable. The waiter was surrly and the food not very good. We had decided not to go back. There are too many good places in our area where we can get a good meal and acceptable service. This past week we had friends in from out of town and they insisted on going to Fridas because they had come in for the showing at the Nelson. We went and found the food and service much like our "favorite" Fridas on 151st. We will go back. Our waitress was engaging and the food from very good to excellent.

Fresh fish and veggies
We ate at Frida's for the first time Friday, after seeing that it was ranked the best Mexican restaurant in the area. We also are enjoying Frida's popularity with the exhibit at the Nelson Art Gallery. We both ordered fish and found them fresh and delicious with flavorful sauces and nicely seasoned fresh steamed veggies. We will be back!

Enjoyed our first visit
Several friends had recommended Frida's so we wanted to go. We arrived for our reservation and were seated in an excellent table. The chips and salsa came right away and we both thought they were great. We had the chicken mole and the pork tacos. Our order was on the table in less than 5 minutes. We asked for black beans and they were excellent. The portions were generous and we had to take home leftovers. We probably would substitute something for the hot cabbage and red onions the next time. We will definitely go back.

Thought we would be disappointed as it took awhile before our waiter appeared. But once he did, WOW!. This is not what we expected. Usually at a Mexican restaurant, you get fajitas, burritos, etc. This is REAL Mexican food, very tasty, well spiced (if you want), with hints of Aztec dining. Our waiter turned out to be one of the owners, born in Mexico City, raised and taught in Mexican/Aztec tradition, and the food was wonderful (the word my wife used over and over was "amazing!") This has become our new favorite place, and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Delicious and Unique
Fridas is not your typical Mexican restaurant; the menu is full of a variety of authentic dishes. I had a white fish with cilantro pesto and it was delicious! The wine list is nice and each dish has a suggested pairing. I would definitely recommend for a nice evening out!

worth the drive
We live in midtown KC, but a friend had recommended Frida's. It was quite a drive for us, but so worth it! The menu was interesting and the presentation delightful. My husband had the stuffed poblano peppers (#30) and I had the tender pork tacos (#31). Hubby enjoyed the Frida margarita and I had the Diego martini. We will be back! With friends!

The Quiet after the Storm
From what I have heard this place is usually packed. We went the week after labor day and found out that is a great time to sneak in. With school just starting and people trying to catch up after the labor day weekend they were fairly slow on a Tuesday night. The food was great and the service was excellent.

Non traditional latin food
Enjoy dishes that aren't available at any other restaurant in town. Well prepared and a great selection of entrees and appetizers

If th ambiance was better I would go more often but the food is always amazing by far one of my favorite restaurants of all time.

BEST MEXICAN FOOD EVER!
We had reservations for 5 for a Saturday night and were excited because it was our first time at Frida's. I arrived early to discover that our lovely booth was situated next to a large family party with lots of exuberant kids. Given that two of our friends joining us are teachers and hear plenty of noise from children 5 days of the week, I asked the waiter if we could move. The staff sprung into action and set up the private dining room for us. No one was exasperated by the request and we had excellent service. Having lived in NYC and dined at many gourmet Mexican restaurants, I must say Frida's selections were the best we ever had. It's a week since we ate there and we're still talking about the food. We will tell everyone we know.

Menu did not disappoint!
It was our first time to eat at Frida's - we had heard good things from a couple friends who had dined there. The menu looked impressive so we decided to go on a Fri. night. While we had a reservation, we definitely did not need it as it was not a busy Friday night location, at least when we went. Our meal was AMAZING. The food was very delicious and service was good. The atmosphere was surprisingly very quiet for a Friday night. In terms of the food, we definitely would recommend as we plan to go back!

Had a great evening. Wonderful,
Had a great evening. Wonderful, informative, friendly service. Food for our table of six was praised by all. We were graciously treated to after-dinner drinks. A memorable evening.

It was divine!! Ask about the storied history of this dish. You would be well-advised not to consume so many of those complimentary warm chips first or you might not be able to enjoy every delicious bite of your entire entree.
