I am very happy to have found Frida Mexican Restaurant at the Americana in Glendale. The service is excellent. The staff is attentive and friendly without "hovering" over you. Having grown up in Mexico City, blessed with parents who were epicurean, I've had trouble finding a "Mexican" place where the food is really Mexican! Frida reminds me of a fine Mexico City restaurant.
Have been here several times and the help is great and the food delicious!
Very good service with friendly staff. The food was good and portions were daily large.
I will definitely will go back!
Went to Frida's on a Friday night for a date, had a reservation through open table. Looked like a moderate walk in crowd so I would suggest the reservation. The accommodated us being a little bit late, which was nice although I called ahead to let them know. We sat outside and despite a colder temperature there was plenty of heaters to make it comfortable. The margaritas were excellent, along with the guacamole, and the rib eye tacos. I would definitely come back to this restaurant.
We went here to celebrate for a special occasion. Food was good so were drinks, service was a little slow. We enjoyed the margarita pitcher for 5 of us and the salsa was really good!
We were a little surprised by the prices, but the food was pretty darn good!
Went for LA restaurant week. Great romantic ambiance; but food quality was lacking. Great service though.
The ambiance was good. The outdoor taco and sole was really good. There were plenty
While all of the food and drinks were wonderful, it was difficult to completely enjoy the experience due to the room temperature. It was a hot day and it was uncomfortable inside the restaurant. The service was great and we enjoyed all of our lunch choices.
Its hard to find a good spot for lunch in Glendale. There are only a few and Frida is one of them. Great outdoor seating area with views of Americana and Brand Blvd. to people watch. Drinks are good. The food depending on what you order will be good to just ok. I tend to stay away from the real traditional Mexican dishes. Have to recommend the Arrachera Norteña.
