Great taste of Mexican food in nice ambiance. Worth the side trip.
Service & Food were impeccable! Dora our server went above and beyond to accommodate all our needs. Exceptional service, quality food and presentations! Kudos
Excellent as usual
Mexican food presented uniquely. Busy place and virtually no bar/ waiting area. Make reservations on weekends. Service and food were very good.
I always enjoy going to La Fonda. I usually have the duck tacos or spinach enchiladas but liked a new dish for me, the sweet potato enchiladas.
One of our favorite restaurants - Always a pleasure to dine at La Fonda on Main!
Jammed, noisy, food not nearly as good as it once was. We have been eating there for 40+ years, but not more. Will move to Mary Lou's.
Once again we had a delightful meal! The Carne Asada de Tampico is delicious and you never go wrong with the Shrimp Poblano Nachos!
Great brunch. Fabulous selection of Mexican brunch items made this a favorite of the six of us dining.
Service and food were great. The outside sitting area provides great ambiance for a dinner out with friends.
We really enjoyed our experience. The food was tasty, and the service was attentive.
The best! We’ve always loved La Fonda for the consistently great food and outdoor patio.
Always excellent. Staff is very attentive and this is a local favorite
I grew up going to La Fonda on Main, and now our gorwn kids make sure to go there at least once during their visits back to SA. We are never disappointed in repeating ordering favorite dishes. Our most recent visit, on the patio. was excellent. Our waiter, Caleb, was outstanding, even rushing over with a glass of milk for our intrepid little one who had tried a bite of jalopena and whose mouth was on fire. Two of our party tried what was, for us, a new item, duck tacos, and they are still talking about how good that choice was. And though it was a very hot early evening, our table on the patio was comfortably cooled by a well-placed fan or two
I’m a regular for many years. Always excellent! Good food; good service
Good food always!
Margaritas need help. Very average taste. Need larger portion for the $15 each we were charged.
There were 3 in our party for brunch. None of us enjoyed our food. It was ok but overpriced. We sat outside which was nice except for the fans that blew all around us. My wife had to hold her hair as she ate. The breeze from the fans was that strong. The wait staff was great, but the food was less than average.. This was my 2nd trip to La Fonda. My 1st time was outstanding so maybe this a fluke. We were one of the first arrivals at the restaurant. They had our reservation and promptly seated us, but It seemed to take a while to get fed after we sat down. Our server was great, but the kitchen was slow. I will have to think twice about returning to La Fonda. So far, i’m One and one. One time good and one time poor.
Food is good, drinks are great.
The food and service at La Fonda on Main are always excellent! It is one of our favors restaurants!
Well, this has always been a really good restaurant. They have come up some kind of bizarre new policy that they don't bring you chips. Not that is really weird. If you ask for it they bring them but otherwise sit and enjoy the empty table. I don't get it. Save a dollar or something on labor maybe? But they end up slowing down the wait staff you apparently have to then go order them. Come on folks, really?
Always great to have dinner here. We love to sit in their patio!
Old reliable-outstanding Mexican food with a creative flair
Haven't been in years and it's doubtful I will go back for many more. Margaritas were too sweet... and who would tout Cuervo Gold for a premium margarita? And, they mixed my frijoles ala charra with my rice. Allow me to do that, if I want, which I don't. What? Over all it was okay but there are better upscale Mexican food restaurants where I will spend my money.
La Fonda on Main never disappoints. We had an out-of-town guest who was most impressed by the enchiladas de mole. My chile relleno was delicious. This is by far our favorite restaurant.
Parking was limited and cocktails were expensive. Service was excellent!
Alright. Service was not good but food was and so was the atmosphere. Beautiful place is what’s going for it.
We’ve always gone to this location and have had excellent service plus food has been good. Unfortunately we ordered their shrimp enchiladas and they were served as corn tortilla tacos with a creamy chipotle sauce and they fell apart as being cut. I told this to the waiter and he told us they were enchiladas Norteno style. I’m Hispanic and know what an enchilada should look like. No bueno!
Constant in outstanding food and service. Always a great choice.
Excellent. Always a favorite place to meet with friends for lunch, dinner and margaritas. The service is always great.
Perfect for date night, special occasion, Business meeting going out with friends and family or everyday dining. The service is always top notch and the food is absolutely delicious. The ambience is perfect and it situated in a charming historic area of San Antonio. Highly recommended
Great food and atmosphere. My favorite truly authentic San Antonio restaurant!
Very good food, but atmosphere is a bit chain - restaurant like. I would recommend and go back.
Brunch was so delicious. From the presentation to the taste. So amazing.
Great Mexican food with a nice ambiance! Would def go back! Staff were great as well!
Missed the chicken served with white rice and poblano sauce, the breaded chicken milanesa was dry and salad was not appetizing not the potato wedges!
The food and service is excellent. This place is definitely on my list of restaurants to eat at.
Authentic Tex-Mexin n a vintage location. Highly recommended if you are looking for a great place away from the touristy areas. We ate on the patio, which had a fabulous ambiance and was fairly relaxed. The hostess, manager and wait staff were all friendly and accommodating. If you haven't tried La Fonda yet, go now. You won't regret it.
Best restaurant in SA for Mexican food that is relatively similar to native Mexicanos.
Very friendly staff, attentive and genuine. The food is always fresh and delicious. Great San Antonio restaurant.
As always my experience was superb. Everything from making reservations to seating was handled easily, smoothly and professionally. Our server was great! The food delicious and all was great.
