We were there on very quiet Sunday night. Had looked restaurant up online and wanted to try. We had great meal. Just the right amount. I live in Wayzata so a drive. Very different. Although the restaurant is billed as Mexican I would say this is more South American, lots of fish entries. Will come again and recommend,
Food is terrific. Environment is unpretentious. The tables are a little smooshed together making it a little uncomfortable.
Love the guacamole and fish options on the menu. They now have a full bar. Great service. It's a favorite spot.
Always good, consistent service, food quality and awesomeness.
Best Mexican food I've had in the twin cities. Fresh flavors, great ingredients and unique presentation!
Small but charming Spanish inspired eatery. Food was very good, tables are a bit tight, but some xtra room at the bar for eating. Clean, friendly staff.
Great neighborhood restaurant with unique Mexican and Latin American food. We ordered the guacamole (plenty for two diners) the empanada, which was delicious, and the mariscos con calavacitas to share. My dinner companion ordered the huanchinango which he thought was excellent. All of our dishes had very interesting presentations and lots of authentic ingredients. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The neighborhood is quiet and parking is pretty easy on side streets.
We have loved La Fresca every time we've been there and so decided to take friends there who hadn't been there before. I was embarrassed by the dinner. The food was great but that's where it ended. The restaurant was so hot, it was more comfortable outside inside than inside and it was very hot and humid outside, really miserable. We had to constantly ask for water. One of our glasses of wine brought was the wrong one, not what we'd ordered. It took FOREVER for our food to arrive and then the food didn't all arrive at the same time. Three entrees arrived first and then the other 1 was after 3 of our party were almost half way through their meals and only when we asked where it was, RIDICULOUS! We ordered dessert and that was a fiasco. The desserts also took FOREVER to come, so much so that we asked if the order had been put in and said we'd like to cancel if not. We've also really enjoyed La Fresca, it's been our go-to place that we can always get a table and the food was good as always but based on the service we will probably not be back again. I can pay less than what it costs at La Fresca and get great service at a lot of places in town.
Server was clueless. And horrible. Food was mediocre. Place was not busy. Some people left as it appeared they were waiting waaaaay too long for their food. Won’t wast my time at this place again.
We have been to this restaurant several times, but our experience this time was very disappointing. The food was generally good as usual. The wait staff pleasant. But it took nearly 40 minutes to get our first drink — and the same for appetizers. By 70 minutes we had our food finally and given our first chance at a second drink...but who could wait another 20-30 minutes? I believe they have some staffing issues. But we had a reservation and drove 30 minutes to get there. Unfortunately, just extremely disappointing.
Delicious food, our server was wonderful, a very nice place to enjoy a great night out. This is a fantastic neighborhood restaurant! Cheers
Everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented on the plate. Definitely will return!
La Fresca remains one of our few favourite restaurants in Twin Cities. We visit frequently - I’d say at least a dozen times so far, and it never disappointed. Good cocktails, reasonably priced, good value wine selection.
Food is invariably high quality, well prepared, appealingly served. The staff is genuinely friendly. Just a nice place to go to and come back. By far the better of the four restaurants run by the same folks. Hope it stays as good as it is.
My wife and I had dinner on the patio which is ideal. Service, menu, food were all unexpectedly very good. We will go back soon!!
The food and service was great i would recommend this to anyone who likes mexican food with a higher end preparation to it
Everything was fine until we got the check. We had ordered guacamole, which is listed as $10 on the menu...they brought it along with tortilla chips. When we looked at the check, there was an extra $2 charge for the chips!!! This was not listed on the menu and they brought the chips without our asking for them, as I think anyone would expect; after all, how else would they expect us to eat the guacamole?! I find this a very sneaky and petty practice on their part. I wanted to say something but my BF told me to just let it go. I will not be dining here again.
Lovely dinner on the outdoor terrace.
Delicious food, half-priced wine, beautiful patio. However, initial service was a little slow and wine arrived same time as food - not optimal.
Another fabulous meal at one of our very favorite restaurants in Minneapolis. Several of us shared a few plates, our favorites being the Ceviche , Mariscos con Calavacitas and Costa Grande Halibut.... all so flavorful and perfectly cooked. Service was, as always, responsive and personal. Such a gem of an eatery.
Consistently high quality everything. Best seafood of any restaurant at a reasonable price.
Having been to several of Hector Ruiz's other restaurants, we certainly wanted to try La Fresca. We were not disappointed! We ended up ordering off the happy hour menu since that was mainly what we were going to order from the regular menu.
The service was excellent and the patio is a great place to dine. Tomato and jalapeno plants surround it and trees provide ample shade on this quiet section of Grand Avenue. I highly recommend!
Best guacamole in town. Love the ambience. Entree’s were also excellent.
The service was amazing. Hunter was knowledgeable, efficient and kind
What a lovely neighborhood gem
Lovely local restaurant. Food is beautifully prepared and presented. Love this place!
Very impressed with our server Hedi!
Food was excellent especially the Guacamole!
we've been here a number of times but service was very disappointing, waited a long time for drinks and to order. appetizer came after our entrees.
Good food, great service. Fun girls night.
We reserved a table early, 5PM, and got patio seating on a perfect summer evening. Four of us ate off the happy hour menu offered til 5:30, getting one or two of everything they offered. All were terrific. $100 for for including dessert and drinks was quite the deal! Service was superb, an added bonus.
Absolutely fantastic. Wonderful experience all around. Unlike any Mexican in Minneapolis. I cannot recommend this enough.
Sat outside so noise level comment not really relevant. But the food was outstanding! Good service. Would definitely go back
Neighborhood gem; excellent service/attentiveness; wonderful and creative food and drinks. A great evening with friends!
Wonderful food, very good service, with a nice wine list.
Delicious Tapas, did not try any entrees but 2/3rds of their menu was various appetizers. Just went with 4 items recommended by the waiter and everything was delicious, my favorite was the tlacoyo al pastor. Lots of unique seafood dishes on the menu also. Very quiet ambiance, margarita was also great.
One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants! Always wonderful menu items and high quality food. Delicious!
La Fresca is a charming small restaurant with very good food and beverages. I had the red snapper, a glass of refreshing Sangria and key lime pie. I liked the situation in what seemed mostly a residential area. The patio was very nice but it was too hot to sit outside. On a cooler night, it would be pleasant.
We had wonderful service! The food was great: small plates were just right. Good drinks too!
Love their patio, love to support local owners. Our food was good. Our waiter was kind and friendly, but two separate times we had to go chase him down because he forgot things... not sure what this story was. He apologized, but they weren't overly busy- he forgot to bring the chips for our app and then forgot to bring my wine. Hmmmm. Otherwise, like this place a lot!
Delicious food; excellent service. Will definitely return.
The food was outstanding as was our server Heidi! She did a great job!
