My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience. We decided to head out to dinner late and Fonda was the only place open, BUT I AM SO HAPPY IT WAS! The food and drinks were amazing. The service was beyond friendly! It was an amazing date night

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.

Had a wonderful brunch at Fonda. They provided a safe, pleasant outdoor dining space. Their brunch deal - $32 for 3 drinks and an entree - was incredible! The food and drinks were absolutely delicious. The staff were prompt, polite, and helpful. I would absolutely come to Fonda again.

Fonda is the very best-the service is top notch and you won’t find a better margarita in New York; and I know that’s quite a statement

it's always delicious. always. the only "issue" is that being outside is tough as sometimes there are fan noises or the like, but that's not the restuarant's fault.

Next time I want Tacos I will go to 5th ave in Sunset park - paying $10.95 for ONE tiny fish taco with barely any fish in it doesn’t work for me !

I’ve been looking for good, authentic, Mexican food go awhile!! Fonda hit the spot! We tried multiple craft cocktails, the spicy guacamole, queso fondito, Carnitas and Rejenos, everything was delicious - would happily go again!! (Plus, homemade tortillas, yum!)

Had brunch for two at 12:45 pm on a Sunday, restaurant was still fairly empty when we first arrived by by 1:30 was pretty full (within COVID capacity guidelines) - typical for brunch. Service was excellent - staff was very respectful and safe from a Covid standpoint and was very prompt and attentive. In fact, my boyfriend started to get up to use the bathroom without his mask on (without thinking) and before I could even say something to him a waiter was already on it which I very much appreciated!

Food was good, one item we had was awesome (Revueltos Estilo Veracruz) and another was fine but nothing to write home about (Burrito Texano.) As far as the included brunch drink options the Hibiscus Rosalita was my favorite.

Definitely will be back and would recommend!

Consistent quality. Been here 6x/yr since they opened. Good portions and always magnicent quality of thier proteins, plus perfection with their seasoning.
Waiters know the menu and are focused on good service.
You will pay for this, as there prices are commensurate to the quality.

Fantastic meal, as always, in a cozy heated backyard patio. Everything from the margaritas to the guacamole to the enchiladas to the fish tacos is first rate. Fonda is hands down the best Mexican restaurant in New York City but don’t expect your usual Tex Mex burritos. This is refined cuisine, beautifully presented in an unpretentious way. The staff is helpful and friendly and I have never been disappointed in the many dozens of meals I have eaten here.

Really hope this place lasts the distance through the pandemic as my husband and I absolutely love it. We bring every visitor we’ve ever had here. We came here on the day we got married, we came here for New Years Day brunch in 2020, then for New Years Eve dinner going into 2021. It never disappoints and at the moment they have a lovely outdoor dining set up that I hope they’ll keep once everything gets back to normal!

Fonda never disappoints! This places is wonderful and has accommodated Covid restrictions so you feel safe to enjoy yourself.

The drinks are tasty and inventive, even if a bit pricey. The food is always top notch. I am always reminded of some of the wonderful restaurant we dined in while in Mexico City.

Try the croquets!
