My wife and I went for brunch. We live nearby but had never been, and we were sorry it took us so long! Everything was fantastic but my Torta de Carnitas was incredibly delicious! One of the best brunch entrees I’ve had in a long time. We will be back!

Best guacamole in New York. The brunch is great. Can get crowded but that's the sign of a good place.

Great food! I enjoyed the drinks and the guacamole (best I ever had). The restaurant is small, so I recommend making reservations. The restaurant is a little on the expensive side they do have happy hour earlier in the day.

Bar none my favorite restaurant in Park Slope boasts a daily excellent happy hour starting at 4pm. The entire restaurant is gluten-free. Brunch on the weekends. Excellently prepared mexican food with fresh ingredients. Amazing guacamole. Great staff.

Hostess was rude; did not seat me till my friend arrived and I had to stand for 10 minutes in the cold doorway. There were 4-5 open tables for 2. I would have bought a drink and waited. I know that sometimes this is a “policy”, but it was unnecessary and made me so mad I almost left. We did stay and the food was great, as was our waitress, but for God’s sake, have a little flexibility and ease off on the attitude. You could have sold and extra $12 drink and made a person feel welcome.

My husband and I came to Fonda for brunch. The place was packed and really busy. Even so our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We chose the bottomless brunch, with the breakfast burrito, margaritas and bloody Mary’s. The food was full of flavor and the drinks were both strong and tasty. We finished off with the citrus tres leches which was delicious. I will definitely be coming back.

I absolutely love Fonda. It is my favorite spot for Mexican in all of Park Slope/South slope. Their guacamole is to die for, especially since they include warm soft tortillas to fill with the guacamole.

Tight(ish) space, so tends to be crowded - reservations highly recommended. BUT: the food is exceptional (at least what I've tried so far, which is about a third of the menu). Definitely try it if you like creative, higher-end Mexican food. Delicious!

Great spot for brunch, they had a pretty good deal and the food was delicious.

Just make sure that the majority of your party is together upon showing up for your reservation. I had booked a table for 1:45 but had to wait to be seated until 2 o'clock because my friends were experiencing train delays. The restaurant is small and the bar can fill up quickly, so it's a bit awkward to have to wait in the small doorway until they will seat you.

Other than that it was a great atmosphere, with really great food and service. I highly recommend Fonda for any kind of meal or occasion!

The waitress was very nice and the food was fresh and delicious. I just expected a larger portion from the special i ordered, though the presentation was nice. The guacamole is memorable, as were the retried beans, and enchiladas. I will be back for sure.

Fonda is amazing always. Some of the best Mexican food in NYC and definitely the best I've found in Park Slope. The queso fundido appetizer is unlike any queso you've had before, perfectly stringy, cheesy, salty and topped with mushrooms or chorizo. The taquitos (small tacos) are an amazing value (less than $11 for 3) filling and have the most incredibly delicious meat, you literally can't go wrong, but the carne asada is a favorite. The margaritas are also exquisite. If you like frozen, I can't recommend the Rosalita (frozen hibiscus) enough - it's delicious and refreshing and goes perfectly with everything on the menu.

I love Fonda, my only issue with this venue is that I don't like to be rushed thru dinner. They have seating for 90 minutes only and then it feels like security is kicking you out of the venue. People literally coming thru and grabbing food and drinks you aren't finished and cleaning the table before you can even get the check. I didn't get asked if I wanted another drink, dessert etc. The place is very small and in an attempt to add more seating they take away the comfort of guest. You can barely move thru the venue without bumping someone's chair or table. Other than that the service was great before our 90 minutes ended and the food is awesome. I would have liked the cocktails to be a little stronger.

My suggestion to the owner is quality over quantity.

Excellent restaurant. Wonderful service and fantastic food. I highly recommend it - and also recommend making a reservation as several people were turned away because there was no room. Its a neighborhood fav for me, but I encourage you to travel in just for the food. Thanks Fonda!
