Friendly but disorganized service. Our party of 4 waited 15 minutes for a waitress to come to our table after we were seated by hostess. Then another 10 minutes for water. ( no water glasses on table and no water offered when guests sit down) We got our meal side dishes before our appetizers, and before we had any plates to put food onto. Wanted to love it but found experience too slow and irritating to merit a second visit when there are so many great little restaurants in Toronto.

Frieda had good food but the service was a little bit slow. If you can wait a little bit it is worth it.

Food was quite good. The Red Snapper meal was excellent--great flavour, texture, etc.--but should have come with a side kind of side, even a few nachos to scoop up the delicious salsa/sauce. I guess I should have added the side of rice. The Chicken Tostadas were quite good, not at all dry and good textures but I expected a stronger punch of flavour. They were still good but quite subtle. The salsas were excellent with the nachos--all made in house. The churros were really great for dessert.

Overall it was good. What's holding me back from saying I'd go again is the value. Everything was a few dollars too much. The food is good, though!

Our reservation was for 8:30 & from the moment we got there, we were reminded that kitchen will close at 9 & forced us to order everything at once. Didn't even offered us water. We ordered margaritas which 2/3 of glass was ice. Half an hour later terrible ice cold food arrived. We had to sent it back as it was not edible. My husband ordered ribs which half was burnt & the other half was nothing but fat. They never came back to find out if we needed anything or if everything was ok. No napkins & had to ask for it. Basically they threw us out at 9:30 on Saturday night. It seems as we just had to go there & pay them $200 & come back home hungry!
It was an unbelievable & shocking experience!
