Thank you, Fonda. We had dinner at Fonda one Sunday night when my husband became very ill and began to faint. The waiters were so kind in assisting us as well as packing up our food to go quickly so I could get him home. The food and service are always good which is why Fonda is a go-to spot for us in the neighborhood.
Really great place. The food is amazingly good. Try the guacamole!!! The servers are really attentive and friendly.
Love Fonda. One of my fave restaurants. My first time at the Chelsea location and it was just as great as the Brooklyn location I always go to.
As usual, the FONDA at Chelsea never disappoints. Food, atmosphere,level of service for a boozy brunch is really hard to accomplish. Yet, the FONDA pulls it off so gracefully. A must visit if you come to Manhattan.
Good food, service acceptable and quite a quick meal!
Six of us had a great experience at Fonda Chelsea. We sat upstairs in comfortable seating with pleasant lighting and music. Service was great, waiter was knowledgeable, food was excellent and plentiful. The guacamole was some of the best I've ever had.
It was fantastic! Went for brunch and did the unlimited drinks. Vibrant place great service and the food was delish!!!
Every dish was wonderfully fresh and innovative and extremely tasty. Service and ambience great. Will definitely try to visit again.
Charming and very welcoming. Excellent specials. Start with the made-to-order Guacamole!
This place is a win!!! I hate to even say this because then it will become too popular and harder to get in! Lol
I have had brunch here a few times and every time has been great with the food and the drinks. Only thing I would say about this experience was that we had to remind the server a couple of times about getting another drink. Other than that it was a great experience.
have been to both fonda locations a number of times
based on our most recent experience we will no longer be going to fonda
night started out with call from restaurant five minutes after our scheduled reservation in which i explained we were in traffic and would arrive in a few minutes when we did we were schooled that they only hold reservations for 15 minutes.... fine.... i guess explaining our situation and actually showing up as i had explained on the phone wasnt enough
service- weak, slow
food- smaller and smaller portions, guacamole
enough for 2??? not really...
drinks- more ice than anything , 3 sips and done
value- charged us additional fee for condiment
tiny portion of spicy sauce and also for a few additional soft small tortillas
very disappointed, there are better choices
out there and will be making them in the future
this is no way to keep patrons happy
i guess when business is good who cares?
that wont last forever fonda.
I had been to Fonda in Brooklyn, one happy hour, and really enjoyed the ambiance and cuisine.
Fonda Chelsea, especially on a busy Friday night, was trendy and boisterous, which is something I try to avoid.
The shrimp salad was weirdly sweet. Guacamole was good.
Server was excellent!
Fonda is always wonderful. Great food, great margaritas, friendly service. Upstairs is usually less noisy.
The host is such a caring person. Always makes us feel welcomed.BUT The server was careless and didn’t give us any proper service. Wasn’t attentive with our order and made us wait too long to take our order. Also had a nasty attitude. I love this location but our server made our visit awful.
The staff was great and attentive! I've been going for years and they keep improving. Delicious food!
This is a really nice place. It's probably not the greatest Mexican / Latin food you'll ever eat, but it's close enough that you'll feel like you got your money's worth. Pretty good value, great ambiance to actually hear people talk.
Excellent fiod and very professional and friendly service.
Food used to be better. Margheritas are good. But very skimpy
Reliable great food!
Americanized tasting Mexican, very good quality & service but lacking in the true flavors particularly when it comes to picante.
The host is always so kind.
We love this place .
Staff was very attentive and the food is extremely tasty. Not to mention the margaritas are top notch!
Delicious food! Really enjoyed everything and they make a great margarita
Good service and good food
We loved the brunch options. They even have a vegetarian menu, though we had excellent vegetarian options on the regular menu as well. The drinks were great as well. I highly recommend!
Absolutely delicious food, served in a friendly, no-fuss atmosphere. In particular, the Callos y Camarones
(scallops and jumbo shrimp, served with a creamy habanero sauce) was outstanding.
Excellent place but people on outside of booth (in party of 4) really complained of the noise level.
The heirloom corn tortillas were totally fantastic. I would go back with pleasure
Great brunch & the unlimited cocktails was a huge plus.
Our server nitpicked everything! It was so annoying. I felt like I had my father watching over me at times. The food was ok, but not worth the price in my opinion. The servings are small. The drinks were good and strong. The unlimited brunch is the best option if you want to try this spot. I wouldn't pay full price for the meal you get. They also added a 20% gratuity to our table of 4 (and a toddler who didn't eat). I couldn't understand why. Maybe the server knew he sucked. We were celebrating a birthday, so the service kind of messed up the mood of the table. I won't go back.
Fonda Chelsea is a favorite neighborhood spot to have amazing food, tasty drinks and has a fun vibe about it. Brought out of town friends with us and we all had a great time. Pollo norteno was the pick of three of our group along with enchiladas de mole and the roasted pork dish. All the food got rave reviews. Service was fantastic. A really fun night
Holiday party’s going at the same time so made the experience less than enjoyable due to the loud noise level and drunk customers
Very attentive staff (esp considering we were there for bottomless brunch - my mimosa glass was never empty!). Food was tasty and price was great. Would recommend!
Great food and great service. Even our children really enjoyed it
The food was good but it was not cooked all the way. Got a stomach ache after eatting. Was in the bathroom all night.
Excellent experience overall. The food is delicious and well-presented. The guacamole is the best, very very fresh...so good, in fact, that we ordered a second helping during our entrees. We just didn't want to say goodbye! The service was quick and friendly. Would love to return to Fonda on our next trip to NYC.
Great specials and variety on the menu. Consistently delicious. Definitely one of the best all around Mexican restaurants in the city.
Amazing food. Big portions!!! Guacamole to die for!! Just try it, you’ll love it.
Very tasty food, excellent hibiscus margueritas, reasonable noise level upstairs (no large parties there when we were eating) and excellent, responsive service.
Truly pleasant experience. Will return.
Enjoyed the food—very thoughtful and deliciou! Service was lovely and they got us out effortlessly when we told them we had a time constraint. Looking forward to my next meal there!
