The taquitos are excellent as is the guacamole which is hand smashed and presented beautifully. The salmon was cooked to perfection, the sweet potato and the sauce really gave an accent to the flavor. The flan was fantastic, moist and creamy.

All of the food (apps and entrees) were fantastic and service was great. Drinks were a little pricy but tasty. The restaurant offers lots of vegetarian options so that was great!

Love fonda. Great food. Servers were busy and gave us a dirty table, no utensils, and dirty water glasses, but were quick to fix these issues once we pointed it out to them. Overall a good experience.

My friend and I went for brunch, when you pick the brunch special you get the option for bottomless drinks, 3 options. We also ordered guacamole which was fantastic. The entrees were phenomenal, absolutely loved it here! Viva Mexico!!

The food was great! The host was pretty rude to us about requesting an outdoor table and said nothing was available. When we started to leave, he scrambled to say we could have the table for exactly one hour. There were 3 empty tables when we left, so clearly no waiting list for the backyard. Bummer!

Dinner last night was excellent! We dined outdoors and shared the spicy grilled carrot salad as an appetizer that was both unusual and delicious! We both had seafood from the regular menu ,salmon and codfish ,that were both superb i.e. large portions, cooked to order perfectly moist ,subtle spices and accompanied by wonderful rice and beans! Service was friendly and efficient!

Not as good as previous visits. Won’t be returning or recommending. Read:

All food heavily salted. MSG added? Steak poorly cooked and/or bad quality (chewy). Margaritas too sweet. All food too expensive for what it is.

Chaotic vibe: inside and outside was a mess. Front-of-house staff needs WORK YO and also a mask. Gross! Tables too small. Cramped inside and outside. (Yikes — not COVID- safe-looking.)

Server visibly and obviously hates his job and all Fonda diners. Handling a gift card inconvenienced this gremlin despite receiving a 30% tip. F outta here.

Really great food and ambience. The live music and the outdoors patio made for a perfect setting. Service was a bit slow; it could have been an off day. Everything else was perfect. We will be back.

As always, Fonda delivers. There with the family for a special dinner, and we were all extremely happy with our food. My favorite is the Pollo Norteño a delicioso chicken dish cooked in a banana leaf with chilies and chihuahua cheese, topped off with pickled onions. Kids both ordered the Carne Asada con Hongos, and my wife the Camarones Mosquito. Their Rosalita margarita is our favorite, and not having had one since before the pandemic, it was a spectacular treat.
I feel like it’s some of the best Mexican food I’ve ever had outside of Mexico City.

Great selection. Almost too many tasty options to explore. Enjoyed the camarones adobados and the enchiladas de mole Colorado (with braised pork). Ate indoors appreciating the cozy vibe, but outdoor seating options as well. Great birthday dinner for my wife!

Always a new great dish at Fonda. Amazing steak with mushrooms and mole pulled pork enchiladas. Best Mexican in NY and I managed an upscale Mexican restaurant in NYC for many years. Mexican at it's most delicious.

One of my favorite places, but since covid started we’re not ready to eat indoors, and they will only serve nachos at the bar, during happy hour. Which is lame.
