    The noise levels are unbearable. It’s impossible to enjoy the otherwise good food and service. I won’t be coming back until this is fixed.

    They need to work on the guacamole as that is going to be a first impression kind of thing. Ours was flat in taste and supposed to be medium heat. It was not at all spicy. When the waiter took it back to adjust it, it came back tasting like a one note dump of hot sauce with no nuance. The rest of the dishes were really good as were the cocktails and mezcal pours. The service was not attentive enough though and in a bit very crowded place we found ourselves often searching for our waiter. He was very nice, so a little coaching and good to go. We are neighbors so will be back and hope it turns out to be a great spot. Noise level was ok because it wasn’t crowded but when it is, we fear it will be really loud. But that’s par for the course these days. Promising start that a few tweaks will help.

    Both the food and service were excellent - especially considering that it was a busy day (Cinco de Mayo).

    Fonda TriBeCa is a great addition to the neighborhood. I have been a long-time fan of Roberto Santinanez, so it wasn’t surprising that the food and drinks were superb. For a brand new restaurant, the service was excellent. Our server, Orlando, was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. I can’t wait to take more friends there.

    I’ve been a longtime fan of the Chelsea location but as a TriBeCa resident I’m thrilled they’ve opened up in my hood! The food is terrific, innovative and layered with flavors that don’t overwhelm the fresh ingredients! The mole is best I’ve ever had outside of Mexico, deeply layered complexity, just outstanding! Service is warm and friendly, bartender knows how to make a real margarita & the vibe inside is cool, minimalist & warm.
