Unusually tasty Mexican food. The service on a busy Mother's at Bruch was efficient and friendly. Looking forward to my next visit.

The staff is very attentive and made us feel safe our first time dining indoors in awhile! This is one of our favorite neighborhood spots. Food and drinks always excellent and the ambiance always lively but not too crazy.

Great, as usual! The drinks, guacamole, carnitas, shrimp mosquito, and steak were all delicious, as were the desserts. Everyone who works there is charming. I love Fonda!!!

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.

We had a wonderful dinner at Fonda. I brought a birthday cake from outside and they were happy to serve it to us, ‘Happy Birthday’ and all.
Very nice people and great food.

I love this restaurant - the food is spectacular and the service is great. The prices are normal high, but not crazy. With appetizers and drink and entree and tip, it was $70 a person. If it were less expensive I would go more than once a year, but I’m cheap, lol. It’s a great place.

I love this restaurant and have been frequenting it since it opened more than a decade ago. Service this time was a bit annoying. Couldn't get anyone's attention to get another drink.

During the pandemic we have done take out from Fonda, all good, but it was great to be back inside the restaurant. Tables are apart and the restaurant is well ventilated (we kept our coats on). Food and service great as always.
