La Fonda on Main

As always, great food and atmosphere
Overall positive experience. Service was good. Not great, but good. Food was also not great, but fine. I understand and appreciate paying for atmosphere and ambiance, but still La Fonda is generally over-priced. Also, we were disappointed that they didn't offer any spicy salsa (only mild) and the extra salsa they did bring, they charged extra for. They also charged extra for a small side of jalapenos. Charging extra for salsa and jalapenos is unheard of in a city with a thousand Mexican restaurants that do not charge for these things. Still, we enjoyed our evening and would recommend, but not highly.
We love this restaurant. Today we attended the matinee performance at the Public Theater and then had dinner afterwards at La Fonda. We ordered the featured appetizer which was ribs as our main meal, very filling and so yummy. Recommend the Sangria as a nice light drink to go with your meal.
Everything was amazing! Had a great time celebrating my bday with my sis :)
Reservation was on time. Service wonderful. Food - delicious! Strawberry-Basil Margarita, AMAZING! The Enchiladas Espinacas never disappoint - neither do the chefs specials.
It was pretty good dinner
We always stop by La Fonda when we are in SA! Great food and service!
Love the food at La Fonda On Main & the service was Excellent.
Old, tough tamale and old red sauce on enchiladas. Disappointing
Always lives up to expectations! We ordered the specials - Mexican paella and steak with shrimp. Both were delicious and well prepared. Service and margaritas were also excellent, as always.
Love the margaritas. The sweet potato enchiladas were so unique and delicious. Like nothing I have ever had before! We come here every time we are in San Antonio..
Great food and experience! From Dallas and WILL be back!
We eat here every time we visit San Antonio! The patio is lively!!
We were staying at The Emma Hotel and asked for a great Mexican Restaurant recommendation from the hotel and they suggested La Fonda. We arrived at 5:25pm on a Wed night without reservations. Employee said they had a lot of reservations but they could seat us. The restaurant had many empty tables inside and out. On the way to our table the employee stopped and turn to us and said "We cannot seat you because you do not have a reservation". We walked outside and I immediately make a reservation on via my phone at 5:45pm. We went back in and the employee was "shocked" when I showed him my phone with our confirmation. We were seated. The food and service was wonderful but the employee working seating was rude and lacked customer service. I would recommend La Fonda just because the food and our waitress was excellent and made up for the seating experience.
Great food and service.
Food at La Fonda is delicious. It has a great patio eating area and the indoor dining is lovely.
Exceptional service, Cocktails were fabulous, Ceviche was not quite as fresh tasting as other occasions also ordered the Mole Xiqueno Enchiladas and they didn’t really have much flavor?? Not the best meal I’ve had their but was entertaining friends from Chicago and didn’t want to send food back or complain.
Good food & drinks but service was slow
Flavorless food, liquid smoke. Not a good representation of your city.
This is my FAVORITE place to eat!! I’ve never been disappointed. Not once. You can always trust the special to be unique and out of this world. The authenticity of the food is what brings me back over and over again. Service is spectacular!!
Excellent wait staff and delicious food.
Was good but still had to wait more than 30 minutes. Made reservation 7 hours in advance and arrived on time.
This is a great place. I come here almost every time I’m in San Antonio. Delicious food and great service.
Food was fresh and tasty
I've always enjoyed my dinners at La Fonda on Main. The service was great and the food was delicious.
Love, love La Fonda on Main!!
La Fonda on Main is in a 100 year old home with a secluded patio. It feels like an afternoon with friends. The food and drinks are always good. The service is slow paced, friendly and relaxed. It is not a place for a rushed 30 minute lunch, it is a place for a second margarita and maybe another dessert...a third margarita.
A little loud but great experience & great food & great service.
Uriel was very attentive and knowledgeable. He was very helpful in helping my first time guest navigate the menu and encouraged him to try something new. The Duck Tacos were fantastic!
Dora, or server was excellent. She really took very good care of our table.
I gave the food three stars because once again, although the dishes ALL four of ordered were tasty, AGAIN, for the 3rd time, the food was only just warm. I recall the days when the plates arrived with the warning, "Plate is HOT. Don't touch."
When we arrived, the greeter couldn't find my name on the reservation list, and I had reserved a table for 4 on Open Table early in the afternoon the day before. We finally got seated right at the noisy, windy entrance, and, fortunately, we were able to be re- directed to another table of our choice away from all the traffic. There were lots of empty tables. I am beginning to think that La Fonda does not check Open Table reservations, so will try calling directly to the desk next time.
Hot food, please. Hot food!!!
La Fonda on Main is a joyful experience; it has such a authentic, happy Mexican feel; food is varied, ambitious and delicious. The architecture and decor remind me of the San Angel Inn in Mexico city, but on a much smaller scale. My Chile Relleno was really something special, as good as any I've had anywhere, including Mexico. The service is friendly, fast and knowledgeable.
Took quite a while to get asked for our food order. When it came my food was not hot the wait person had tables inside and outside, too spread out.
I am a regular at this restaurant for good reason.
Consistently good food, excellent service, and pleasant ambiance.
Tex Mex no better or worse than most other Tex Mex.
Food was not fresh, nor authentic. Not sure why this place is highly rated
Excellent service by Alexandra, the food was great and the drinks were delicious.
Sean was a top server and the food was awesome. Loved it
