It was fantastic and the service and food quality was just what we wanted from the table side guac to the tacos. in fact the corn tacos and re fried bean were the best i had ever had. Service was perfect the chicken for the fajitas was a little dry but we will certainly be back

I ordered a chicken taco and a beef taco. Both were made with ground meat rather than more flavorful pulled (shredded) that had been marinated. This was disappointing and largely tasteless. I will go back, but will stick to shrimp and fish tacos and other entrees.

The servers need more training on being attentive. We waited numerous times on requests. Our server failed to come and ask how we were doing or even to ask if we wanted more to drink or refill our water. We were disappointed on the menu. They made a valentines menu but failed to executed properly. We ordered the filet with potatoes and the filet had no flavor. The arrolladora plate was good but our server never offered us sides and there weren’t any listed on the menu. It is a bad dish when all you are eating is pieces of meat and onions. Until we asked the busboys they confirmed there were sides we could get. The only good food experience were the drinks and dessert. The ceviche tasting for appetizer was decent but also needed more flavor as also the table side guacamole. This restaurant has a lot to learn on flavoring Mexican cuisine and service.

Restaurant was very busy (Wednesday night), seated 15 minutes after reservation time, we arrived 15 min early, so we stood there for 30 min., no waiting area, so constantly in someones way. Food came out very slow, they gave us chips and salsa to appease, after we already ordered guacamole, didn't make sense. $200 ish for 4 people, only 2 cocktails, no deserts. Waitress was very nice, apologized continually, I am hoping it was just a bad night. Food was very good, no complaints from my guests. The place was very noisy, made it difficult to carry a conversation, nice ambiance otherwise.

The drinks were good and service was prompt. We ordered appetizers and main courses. Some of the five main courses arrived before the appetizers and the remaining two afterwards. We found it to be very annoying because we specifically asked for appetizers to be ordered and delivered first. The waiter was no where to be found to discuss the situation. We didn’t see him again. We had to ask another person for our bill when it time to leave. We don’t plan to return.

Waited 40 minutes for a 7:30 reservation with little-to-no apologies. Half of our order apparently didn't get ordered so it was a bit disappointing. Food is always good and the environment is lively. I'm a fan of the family and their growing success with Frida, but I sincerely hope they get a better handle on the management for this location.

The tacos were delicious, the nacho platter was very tasty. The shrimp fajitas, so yummy. The only negative we asked for extra guacamole instead of the chicken or beef and they said they will have to charge extra.
All together the food was excellent, however the service was very bad. I ordered an extra taco, but after about 20 min of wait for a veggie taco, we asked for the check instead. Our waitress would hardly come to our table to ask if we needed anything. On a couple of occasions, we had to ask other waiters to call our waitress over.

It was my first time at Frida's and I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere and food was very good. Our waiter took a little long to take our order and it was before the lunch rush, but after he took our order, things went well. Our food came relatively soon; within a reasonable amount of wait time, and our waiter was overall very good. I would recommend Frida's to friends and colleagues and will return myself.

Despite the restaurant not being very busy they refused to sit our party of two at anything but a tiny table, in fact staff were quite surly at our request for another table. Needles to say that once cocktails, water and wine arrived there was little room for anything else on the table and candles, condiments etc had to moved to a narrow ledge so that the food could be accommodated. On which topic the food was bought to the table whilst my dinner guest was in the lavatory, so she returned to cold food. Overall it was fairly clear that the staff didn't really care about their patrons dining experience and just wanted to move people on as quickly as possible. Food was average at best.

Great atmosphere and food, outstanding service. Our server recommended a new tequila on the menu, he was very knowledgeable about all of the tequilas. We are happy we went with his recommendation. Can't wait to go back to Frida.
