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.

A causal spot with good food, fantastic drinks, and FABULOUS service! There are currently two outdoor seating options; a garden out back and a partially-enclosed structure out front. Personally--during this current pandemic phase, I'd have preferred outside to the small, rather intimate space inside, but my friends were worried about the heat. Once we were seated, it was clear none of us felt comfortable in such a small space, but my friends were still more worried about the heat. Back to the service--our server was handling multiple spaces and still had everything under control. She went above and beyond with suggestions and catches, and even rallied a small crew at dessert to sing happy birthday to our friend. A bit too casual for a special occasion, but truly a lovely place to spend time with close friends.

I reserved an “outdoor” table with a credit card. We were given a table in the street shed (traffic, no ambience) instead of in the back garden (greenery, decorative lights, ambience). The food was decent.

I went to Fonda last night for the first time in many years (I live out of the area now). Fonda is still a fun, lively place to meet friends for dinner. The ambience is always great. We sat in the back patio which was empty at first but then got filled quickly. The service was excellent, but the food wasn't as great as I remember it being. I had the fish special which was supposed to have a guajillo sauce (which is why I ordered it), but it came with no guajillo sauce at all- just a brothy, clear sauce. So that was a little disappointing. But still love the atmosphere here and would definitely return.

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.
