Fonda - Brooklyn Ratings and Reviews
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!
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!
Have eaten at Fonda many times and it remains just as good as always. The Pepino margaritas were spot on. Well balanced, not too sweet or too heavy handed with the tequila. Guac was very nice too. Not too heavy on the add ons. Avocado was the focus but just enough of the other things to add but not take over. Pescado Tikin Xic was the real star. The cod was cooked perfectly, the sauce, plantain rice and habanero onion pickle all worked together really well. Service was excellent. Quick, attentive, knowledgable but not in your face.
When the weather is fine, Fonda Brooklyn's patio is exactly where you want to be for a bowl of intensely flavored soup, a spicy guac, and a hibiscus margarita. The food is always made with care, the service is attentive without hovering, and the patio is quieter than the main dining room, making it a better place for conversation. I love Fonda!
Fonda was just right for an early evening friends’ get-together. We chose a table at the pleasant outdoor area, a great choice for our recent (October) evening. Service was attentive and considerate, margaritas delicious, the food well prepared, creative, and delicious.
The guacamole appetizer was fine, but could have been a bit more generous portion. Otherwise, everything was fine
2 stars due to the following:
-Food is way too salty specifically the guacamole to the point that we had to return it (and don't get me wrong, I like salt but this was extreme!! I mean it's hard to mess a guacamole right? Especially at a Mexican restaurant..
2- service was very slow with only 1 server for the whole restaurant on a packed weekend night. No concern for follow up on meals, checking if everything ok..
3- margaritas were alright
4-prices are too high for the food especially with such mediocre quality and poor service.
The only thing I liked was the ceviche
This place is a gem! We are so lucky to have it in Park Slope. The staff clearly cares about your experience and the food is delicious and often surprising. Never pass up the specials---they are always adventurous and super yummy. And the rosalitas (hibiscus margaritas) are refreshing and potent but never too sweet.
Fonda, Soigne, Piccoli, and Talde are the fabulous four places we bring our out of town friends to show off the neighborhood. Never disappointing.
Although my husband was a bit disappointed with the mole sauce on his entrée, my friends and I really enjoyed our fish tacos and duck entrée. The guacamole and chips were terrific and the service was nicely attentive. We were sitting across from the bar on a busy Friday evening, so it was a little loud, but not to the point that we were uncomfortable. Would definitely return.
