A TOP Mexican restaurant, with a wonderful variety of delicious Mexican dishes. Wish they would change some of their menu choices; it's been the same for quite some time. Also, although our orders were delivered quickly, attracting the waiter to pay the bill was annoyingly long. Short on staff? I don't know. Otherwise I would have given Fonda 5 stars.

We really enjoyed our brunch. The food at Fonda has been consistently excellent for nearly 20 years. So glad they seem to have made it through this awful time in one piece.

It's fantastic! The food is out of this world and is served in appropriate sized portions. The upside down Pineapple cake dessert was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Great service, very accommodating.

They took substitutes for my friends allergies which shows a finesse of cooking. The flautas were delicious and the guacamole good amount of onion and spice. I wish they had sangria!

I love love love this restaurant! The food and drinks are amazing!! The only issue that I had here was, I asked for a margarita. when I got it, it did not have the same taste. It tasted more like juice then alcohol. When I asked for it to be remade the waitress wasn’t too happy with me asking. The margaritas are expensive why would I want to pay for something that taste like juice. Regardless she was lovely. Definitely recommend this place.

Delicious food and drinks all around, but probably one or two clicks more expensive than you want it to be. We never escape without spending at least $50-60/person.

Loved our dinner here during a quick trip to Brooklyn. The staff is following covid safety precautions with sign in, temperature checks and occupied tabes far apart. There is covered sidewalk seating as well as a back outside patio. We ate inside but next time will request a back patio table as it looked very charming! The service was terrific with our waiter offering suggestions to help us make our selection. The crab appetizer with three sauces was delicious. We each had a pork dish for out entree. Well seasoned with a little zip without too much heat. I would have liked my Cadillac margarita a tad bit sweeter but it had plenty of tequila and was made with fresh juice. The portions were big. Highly recommend.
