Good food, good service. The guacamole was fabulous as were the taquitas and fish tacos- tho the latter was a tad too spicy.
Girls Night Out at Fonda and two new converts were made! Love the fresh tortillas and chips served with the guacamole, the fish tacos, and the carnitas -- which are the best value on the menu!
Food waa great! Drinks were Great! Service was great! I had the guac that was made to perfection. It had the perfect amount of everything. I also did the $35 entree with bottomless drinks. I had the Torta de Pollo and it was evvvvvverythhhhhing!!! I've been craving it ever since! The chicken was nice and juicy. Overall delicious. The blood Mary was made with the perfect amount of spice. I loved It! Our server was very helpful. Our reservation was originally made for 2 but the manager accommodated our group of 4. That was greatly appreciated. I'll definitely be back! 🖤🖤🖤
Food was okay but the restaurant was very loud on a Saturday night at 7PM. Our server was outstanding though.
We had a heat meal and our server was really on point when it came to our table for bottomless drinks
It was great and the food was amazing !
Everything as been in control, the staff is very nice, the place very busy, bar as been crazy all night.
The food was incredibly delicious, particularly the guacamole.
love this place!
Too loud and the quality of the food was inconsistent. Not as good as FONDA Park Slope used to be!
Such good food! We went for restaurant week dinner, and the portions were still HUGE. The carne asada was cooked wonderfully, the guacamole was delicious, and the hibiscus margarita was beautiful to look at as well as nice to drink! Wonderful service as well.
Had a few drinks between our table of four, all of which were well thought out and tasty, and the menu offered lighter fare (apps can serve as a light dinner) as well as delicious meals. I loved the atmosphere, the guac, the tequila list, and the entire experience.
Very noisy restaurant on a Saturday night, tables are cramped, but that's to be expected in NYC. Food was 4/5. Service excellent.
The food was delicious but the best part of this experience was our waiter he was very knowledgeable very
Great value! Half priced bottles of wine on Thursdays. Guac is so goooood. Service was great.
Fonda is popularly known for happy hour but for dinner the portions were adequate the food was tasty and the service was impeccable. the wait staff are knowledgeable and treat you very well!
Best guac and great drinks with quick refills
Seeing my best friend at brunch ! Always a great experience here!
The food is truly authentic / “non-Americanized”. The drinks are delicious and the atmosphere is neighborhood-quaint. I will return many times!
Love this place! Our waiter was super on it with refilling our mimosas and everything came out super fast. My friend and I had a great time.
Great service, great food, warm and cozy. I went there for my birthday and absolutely loved it!♥️
My wife and I enjoyed the vegetarian dishes at Fonda. We ate there after a matinee in area. I'd go again if we we're in the neighborhood, but it wasn't special enough to go out of our way to eat there.
We went to Fonda on Sunday afternoon. Some friends have gone to Mexico and a person there recommended the restaurant. Some of us had the brunch with unlimited drinks for 90 min and others just had lunch with one drink. The menu is different if you have the unlimited drinks + main course ($35+tax) or the regular meal. We shared a delicious Guacamole with chips and then I had the carnitas which was pretty good. Other people had tacos that said that it was not something special (They were coming from a Food tour in Mexico) but for me the food was really good.
Service was good also and the server was all the time looking if we were happy and had all that we needed.
Great food, great service. I’ve visited Fonda at least 4 times and they’ve All been great dining experiences. The hibiscus margarita never disappoints! It’s a great local eatery with delicious food and nice atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back!
It took almost 1 hour for the food to come out of the kitchen, and it was very very salty, wrong texture, and cold. I could not eat the dish I ordered, so I had to send it back. This was my second time sending back the dish I ordered in 6 months. I wanted to try if they were okay this time, but no. Overall, the quality of the food was extremely poor. I used to love going to Fonda, but they are no longer watching the quality of their food, and the kitchen seems to run by people who do not know anything about Mexican food. My friend and I used to go at least twice a week to eat there since we live in the neighbourhood. This experience informed me I no longer wish to dine there. I cannot torelate it any more. It was very bad.
Awesome time, great food, great music, great service, great company. All and all Great time
My only real complaint is the noise level but that seems to be in all NYC restaurants these days. But as the crowd got louder ( screeching 20 something women) the music got louder.
The brunch menu is very limited and if you don’t like eggs then you probably won’t find a brunch entree here. I had the burrito and it was meh. Definitely not great and I only ate a few bites. They slather it with some type of sauce so it basically tastes like a soggy burrito I’m my opinion. The few bites I did have were only from the inside (eggs, potatoes and chorizo). My friend had the French toast and she also only had a few bites. She said it had a weird taste and it was too sweet. My other friend had the torta and she said it was “interesting” not wonderful but it was okay. The guacamole was good and the drinks were good as well. Overall not a place I’d recommend or go to again - for brunch anyway. Their menu is totally different for dinner so I may give them another shot.
The food was fantastic, the guacamole though was a bit stingy. The service was great per usual. The enchiladas suizas and flautas de pollo are by far my favorite dishes on the menu.
Had a great time at Fonda East Village. Food was excellent and service was superb! Will definitely return!!
Food was delicious and authentic. Everything tasted homemade and had a ton of flavor. Margaritas very well made. Guacamole was outstanding as were the filet tacos and enchiladas suizas. Service is polite and friendly without being too intrusive. All around great experience!
This was my second time having brunch here this month, both times with friends from out of town. The first time was great, but this time the food portions were half the size for the same cost. When I pointed it out and even showed pictures of last time, I was giving two excuses - one form our waiter and one from a cook. They said they would get a manager, but they never did and they didn't bring it up again. They just totally ignored it, and from that point forward the service was extremely slow in getting us drinks, bringing the bill and cashing out.
The reservation was necessary to get a table even when the restaurant was empty. Glad I made it. Thanks opentable!
I found the inside of the restaurant to be quite claustrophobic because of the decoration and also quite smelly. We sat outside and had margaritas, the blood orange one is fantastic. Very kind service as well.
Very good overall. Only problem- we showed up, but were recorded as a no-show. Not very cool!
I always keep coming back here. The food is good and the drinks are strong. Their specials (happy hour, brunch, etc) make it a good deal.
Waiter was very eager to help and his recommendations were good. However the drinks were VERY weak. I was actually convinced there wasn't any alcohol in my margarita. I'm a lightweight and can feel it after a glass of wine- I was stone cold sober after two margaritas.
The guacamole was yummy and so was the hibiscus margarita! Great happy hour too.
Guac was amazing
Get the carnitas de fonda, guac, and Queso with chorizo. You won't regret it.
This has been my second visit to Fonda and I must say the food is great.. the tamarind margarita are a must, but they are a little too pricy. Iwish they would consider in changing the pricing just a tad.
