Great food, ambiance, service, and best margaritas in Seattle!
I stayed away from the usual Mexican fare that I could get anywhere and went with seafood-based enchiladas. Enjoyed the meal. I'd return to try their other dishes for sure. Thought it odd that is came with a mini-tostada as the pre-dinner fare (instead of the usual chips and salsa), but it was fine.
Delicious dishes and great Margarita selection with free tostadas.
Fogon was great for a first date, which is why I attended. It has a moderate/loud nose level, so it's not too quite. The food is great and the staff is very attentive. It's fancy enough for a first date, but not so fancy that anybody would feel uncomfortable!
I love this place! Truly authentic Mexican food with a lot of menu options (especially for picky eaters!) Great service - love the complimentary tostada before the meal, a very nice touch. I have been twice now once for lunch on a weekday and once for dinner on a weekday; on the first visit, the service left a bit to be desired. But the second time, it was excellent. Our server was terrific! We were there early (5pm) so it was quiet, but it's in a great location for people watching and hanging out on the hill.
Good food slow service, but with a good attitude. I went there with a bug group, they accommodateated well and ask out food came out at the same time.
Visited from Vancouver, Canada. Everything was wonderful here. The food is very high quality and authentic - even better than a lot of the food we ate on a recent trip to Mexico City. We ordered a number of happy hour specials, including ultimate margaritas. Will definitely be back.
The food was absolutely delicious and well priced. The drinks are way too expensive for what you get. I will only drink water next time. There was a table that was so loud that we couldn't carry on a normal conversation and I'm sure no one else could either. I think the management should have asked that table to tone it down so others could enjoy their meals and conversation.
tacos were awesome!!
Usually Mexican food is pretty standard across the board. This place had a very nice atmosphere, great food, and it has a really good happy hour menu! Would definitely go again if I return to Seattle.
Made a reservation for 8:00pm on Christmas Eve because it was close to the venue where we were seeing a show. We showed up early at 7:45 and were told they were closing at 8:00pm... yet we had a reservation at the same time. Regardless if they decided to close early, there was no apology and no attempt to make it up to us. They could have AT LEAST called. We were then without a place to eat on a night where very little was open. They obviously don't care about their customers, so we don't plan on ever returning.
I'm used to California homestyle Mexican food, so I've been very picky on my search to find a restaurant that does more than Tex Mex. I can say Fogon is amazing, and it has a fun vibe with great service. I keep looking forward to returning!
Some of the best authentic Mexican food I've ever had. Wonderful salsa and street tacos!
This is my favorite Capitol Hill restaurant. Good food, excellent margaritas, and outstanding staff (especially Omar).
This has become one of my favorite restaurants simply because it has a great friendly staff, the food is good, and I feel comfortable there. It has more of a local crowd, so it feels more neighborly and friendly. There are other Mexican restaurants nearby that have decent food, but the overall experience is not good. Fogon has it, and I always look forward to coming back.
