Excellent service, cuisine and wonderful ambiance.
I always enjoy visiting La Fonda on Main. Their food is amazing. Service was beyond wonderful this time around. Definitely going back
Wonderful food and service. We sat in the back section of the patio, near the fireplace on a cool afternoon. Terrific! Try the prime skirt steak, stuffed poblano, or ceviche! You won’t be disappointed!
Excellent, efficient service and delicious food! The warm, creamy chipotle cauliflower soup du jour was the perfect comfort food starter for the drizzly, "blah", cold weather day. The plump, sweet scallops in my entree were nicely complimented by the light vera cruz sauce and my substitution of warm, sauteed nopalitos (in lieu of the primavera rice) made this a vegetable/seafood delight! (although I felt the portion size was a bit small...I longed for a few more bites after my plate was empty!). Excellent Covid-19 safety protocols in effect (all employees were masked, QR menu codes affixed to the tables that were more than adequately spaced for social distancing). I dined with a friend who had never been to La Fonda on Main. She was very impressed with the food, service and atmosphere and said she will definitely add this gem to her restaurant rotation.
This was our first foray out after getting vaccinated and we were not disappointed even though they are serving only a partial menu! Simply delicious!
We sat on the patio where wonderful weather added to the nice ambiance and great food.
We had dinner outside - chips and queso, spinach mango salad, fideo with steak, chili relleno and steak tampiqueno. Food was really good. The outdoor fans were a bit intense which left me feeling cold, but the food was good and hot. Plenty of space between tables and I live eating in their courtyard with all the colored lights in the trees. The only thing I can even complain about is that our waitperson constantly responded to our thank yous (after bringing drinks, more chips, etc) with the phrase “no problem”. The service itself was timely, I’m just old school and feel that when someone thanks you for something, the appropriate response is “you’re welcome” or “my pleasure”.
FABULOUS FOOD!!! We love this place so much. They are very COVID-safe too. We sat outside and there are multiple fans going. Honestly, GO there to eat. So yummy!
Outstanding food and service. One of the best restaurants I have been to in San Antonio.
Always great service and exceptional food! Would highly recommend to anyone
We love to celebrate at any and all of the Lawton family restaurants. Nice Valentine’s Day for sure.
Outstanding cuisine and service. La Fonda on Main is my go to for great Latin flair cuisine.
Early afternoon seating during freezing temps and pandemic. I would like to experience the service and food when they are off restrictions and open to outdoor seating and a full house.
COVID safety precautions in place, delicious food and excellent service. What more could you ask for? I only wish it wasn't so cold, so we could have enjoyed the beautiful courtyard dining area. Can't wait to visit San Antonio again - I will definitely be back to La Fonda!
Great food and dervice
One of our favorite restaurants. We come here every time we are in San Antonio.
If the weather allows, sit outside. You will think you are in Mexico on one of their lovely patios.
Totally enjoyed our experience.we had a reservation and were seated immediately sipped a wonderful margarita on the rocks while we waited for our food, which seemed to take a long time and was barely warm when it got to the table, but it was delicious.
Couldn't have been more pleased with everything! We are being especially safe during COVID and knew that La Fonda, like Cappy's, would be providing a safe environment for everyone! Will look forward to going again. Thank you.
The sumptuous patio was alive with diners and servers. Food and drinks were delicious.
Great experience. The best outdoor patio in San Antonio, even with the cooler weather. They continue to offer a enjoyable and safe dining experience despite the ongoing COVID conditions.
Marcellino is an awesome waiter! Thank you for bringing the vanilla flan back, so super yummy. This is our go to place to eat out. The food is always fresh and delicious and the wait staff is courteous, friendly and professional. Love the menu here and the ambiance is great too:)
Hands down, La Fonda on Main has the best patio in San Antonio. The food is innovative and off the menu specials are always delicious.
Loved the food and salsa and margaritas. I miss their spicy enchiladas they used to have and their small queso.
Delicious food. Perfectly prepared and made in a timely manner. Service was amazing and was attentive but not over bearing. Ambiance was perfect. Will be back and definitely recommend to family and friends in town and out.
Once again La Fonda was excellent across the board. The food, atmosphere, service, value, they never miss a beat here. Don’t miss this venue when in San Antonio.
Way over priced for the food. Excellent service but did not make up for an unexpected $80 lunch.
La Fonda never fails to satisfy. even during covid, outdoor patio was great.
The food was wonderful and sitting outside was lovely. La Fonda has heated brick pavers and heat lamps so we were comfortable in the cold. Always a favorite margarita spot too.
Excellent service and the selection and quality of the food served is unsurpassed. We look forward to each visit to La Fonda on Main.
Truly some of the best food in town!
Great all around
My companion had a HUGE bowl of soup, and I had a the special (I'm not sure what it was, but it was good! Service was excellent -- we sat outside and were quite comfortable until the propane ran out in the heater nearest to us. Then it got a bit chilly.
One of the best patios and amazing food! Service is always spot on.
My family was Seated right away due to reservations and our table was nicely spaced away, Covid restrictions where very much done successfully. Our waitress was very warm and welcoming, the food was beyond good and nicely done. 10/10 recommended especially on Saturday night
Delightful! The Food was delicious as always- spinach enchiladas were fab! Poblano cream sauce is the BEST!
We had the perfect table by the outdoor fireplace! Very octubres que! We will be back!
Can always count on great food and service at La Fonda. Unfortunately, the open spacing due to COVID restrictions took away from the atmosphere. Saw that everywhere that we went during our visit to San Antonio, unfortunately.
Awesome rood and service!!
Meal was great. Churros seemed a little undercooked; doughy in the middle.
