Interesting part of town. Very nice ambience and great service. Presentation was excellent but the chicken in my enchilada was a little dry and tough. But overall it was a nice experience.

Food was the best Mexican in Utah with exquisite combinations and cooked to perfection. Specialty margaritas were delicious. The service was amazing! Servers were so friendly and fun for our birthday celebration!! They were attentive and courteous while also giving us ample time to decide and finish eating. My whole family was so impressed with their first of many to come dining experiences! We’ll go back for sure!

The reason we went there was for two entrees that were listed on the on line menu but are no longer offered. It was my husband's birthday and he had his palate set for the lamb chops. I was set for the sea bass. I enjoyed the salmon and tamale entree but my husband's entree was nothing special. Update your on line menu so others are not disappointed as we were.

Very disappointed after loving our first few visits
I found the Alambre and Carne asada tough, like a skillet bake from Denny’s
The ceviche and calamari were memorable though
Not the restaurant it used to be

Very good to excellent food. We especially appreciated the variety of margarita's [the habanero/mango esp good], and the appetizers [meatballs with mole=yum]. Entrees were a bit less yummy. I would not order the pork pastor again [very cheesy instead of saucy and the pork did not taste like it was freshly cooked]. Pork belly burrito v good.

So disappointed! Food was bland, over priced. I felt like there was practically no alcohol in my drink, which would have been a very good drink otherwise. Service was great except for one disclaimer, our order arrived after someone who's order was delivered before ours and they arrived at least 30 minutes after we did . Wait staff was very friendly

Service was just right. Comforable for casual to upscale, interesting and different menu. Had the Camerones Diego, plenty of shrimp and the sauce was super savory. Try the Mango Habenaro margarita. Being on a diet I reviewed the menu on the web to make decisions in advance - don’t do that - the web site is not current. Some dishes are listed for 25-30 dollars are no longer served, nothing on the menu was over $22 or so.

Frida Bistro was amazing. My wife and I had a lot of fun celebrating Valentine’s Day there. It’s upscale Mexican food worth the price. I was particularly impressed with the fusion of flavors in the dishes. We will definitely return.

The food is a fantastic gourmet mix of fabulous takes on many mexican dishes. It's a darling restaurant even though it's in a bit of a strange location. We have been there twice in the last 4 weeks and it was outstanding both times.

I have gone to Frida Bistro for many years and I also know the owner, Jorge Fiero for at least 15 years. I have used catering services from Rico Market as well and have always been happy with the quality and price of the food. This past week, I went to Frida's to celebrate my son and my birthdays with our family. The margaritas were excellent, guacamole, chips and salsa varieties. The calamari appetizer was crispy and tasty. The coffee served was delicious with a little cinnamon flavor. The main meal we ordered missed the mark by a long shot. The food we ordered was a disappointment not just for me but for all my family. They all stated the food was good looking but tasteless. The Tres Leches cake, was dry and not moist as I expected. I was kind of embarrassed because I suggested we celebrate there.

Took my wife for a date night and was really happy leaving Frida. Food was really tasty, we started with essentially a queso dip, we at every last drop. Was worth the $8. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food and ambience. Will go back again

Food was great. Service was slow. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. The food is always amazing. But the service needs to be better. It took 20 min to get even a Diet Coke. My friend ordered a margarita and WA saw red 25 min later. Maybe need more servers?? Our server was awesome... Just slow.

The bistro is a wonderful reminder that Mexican food is (MUCH) more than the standard TexMex fare. The food has unexpected combinations of flavors, often with a spicy overtone. We had the stuffed pepper, beef, chicken and seafood dishes. I recommend the appetizers and coffee as well. Friendly service.

One does not usually equate creative cuisine with Mexican food but that's exactly what you get at Frida Bistro. Biggest drawback is the location of the restaurant, but we were warmly welcomed, had great service, and most importantly loved the food. Price is higher than what I am used to paying for Mexican food, but you definitely get what you pay for and the food was awesome.

The salsa and guac were great. The mole was great. I thought the carne aside tacos were hard to eat. The meat needed to be cut smaller or served on a plate so you could cut it. The blue corn tortillas were soft and warm and tasty. The mango habanero margarita was weak, but interesting. Overall, we liked it and would definitely go back.

Surprised that they rushed us out at 9:50 PM on a Saturday noting firmly “We’ve been closed since 9PM.”
Our dessert came out at 9:15???? The staff was very irritated that we weren’t ordering wine.

Frida's Bistro was CLOSED on Monday 23 for lunch, even though on the day before I had received a confirmation of my reservation for a table for 6 for that date and time. It was MOST embarrassing since we were celebrating a special occasion. I was most annoyed! Hence the poor review.
