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.

Food was great. Service was horrific. Waiter spilled hot soup on my sister in law, plates came out 10 min a part. Orders wrong. Waiter was super unenthusiastic and not happy to be there. One error after the next. Disaster. Offered an insulting 15% off. They didn’t even take off the soup they spilled ....

While this place has become quite the scene, I wonder if people will wake up and see the reality of this place. Probably not.
I have been a fan of the Frida chain for many many years, in fact, since they first opened.
Overall, this place is fairly disorganized. Waiter pretty much ignored us for most of the meal. We asked 3 different people for the chips that we ordered, yet it took almost 30 minutes to get them. The staff were running around like chickens with their heads cut off, yet little was getting done. We saw our food sitting in the kitchen for a good 20 minutes before someone finally brought it over.
Speaking of ordering chips, this place has set petty pricing. They charge $3 for chips and salsa, where no other restaurant does that. I can understand that when necessary to avoid people just sitting and eating chips endlessly, but they should not charge if ordering an expensive meal on top of that. Unlike other Frida locations, they also charge extra for beans and rice. I don't mind paying for good food, but just charge us and include everything as a meal. This petty nonsense is just silly.

Our meal there Saturday night was wonderful and we are especially appreciative for the great service provided by Richard. HOWEVER - the only drawback we experienced was seeing the young couple with TWO dogs at their small booth. That's ridiculous. I doubt they have a physicians' letter stating that they each need a service animal. It's very off-putting to have dogs at the table and sitting on the booth seats where we (or other guests) will be sitting.

I hope this restaurant gets it together, this is my 3rd visit for lunch and service has gone down hill. I know it is the holidays, but there is no excuse for pool service in BH, especially at lunch when you are in a time crunch due to work. Please work out, because I like the atmosphere and the food is good. Thanks

Odd experience- upon arriving we were informed that we needed to leave by 8pm.
If we had known- we would have met our friends, who drove two hours, somewhere else.
The food and service was really good

Waiter was too busy serving a large party in the private. Always seemed to be chewing something. Too pushy trying to up sale on items we didn’t want.
The cocktails (margaritas and Bloody Mary) were average and below.
Overall expensive for what we had.
