First time at Frida. They are trying to be upscale in decor and ambiance. The prices are higher than most Mexican restaurants we frequent in LA. Unfortunately the food was mediocre. Portions small (I guess to reflect an upscale gourmet restaurant). Server forgot to bring chips. Server forgot my beer order. Had to ask server for utensils .... Not at upscale at all.

First off If I’m going to pay $15 for a margarita, I’m expecting a drink made with natural fresh ingredients and not syrups. My husband ordered a beer, when the server brought it to the table it was a bottled beer, no glass and to make it even worse she didn’t even bother to open the bottle. We had to sit there until we flagged the hostess down. We decided to get the check and leave rather than sit there and have to go through this all evening. We will not be going back.

Food is ALWAYS great. Service varies from decent to Great. The beverages could really use some improvement. They have a full bar but the drinks are not consistent. Sometimes too strong and sometimes beyond bland. This evening they were bland. We go there for the food which never disappoints but would really love to pair it up with some nice drinks.

We celebrated a coworkers retirement, food and variety was excellent! I bit disappointed with bottomless mimosas they only have one flavor-orange and it’s premixed with champagne which I understand it’s faster to refill glasses

This place is always great and has an amazing atmosphere. Service is beyond excellent. All workers are friendly and helpful. They made me feel very welcomed. The food is always great and delicious. I would recommend more coupons and promotions for drinks and food.

Went here for Valentines Day and we were lucky to get a table a couple days before. They were very busy and it took some time for someone to serve us drinks while we waited for our table. After we got our drinks and chips everything was great from service to the food. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with the food because it tasted very fresh and it was tasty. We would definitely go back because the food was excellent. Price wise it was up there but at least they didn’t rip us off like some of the other restaurants to on Valentines Day.

Going on Valentines day I kind of expected the food or service to be lacking. It was excellent! We were seated within 5 minutes of arriving. Our waitress Dorene was lovely. The only down side was for those trying to enjoy the holiday with their loved one, the music level was quite loud which in turn made everyone talk loud. Not something you would want for a nice Valentines day dinner but it did not deter from an excellent time. Food was outstanding as well and the drinks amazing. We will definitely be back!

The restaurant has huge potential. The ambiance is great! My issue was with the service. Our server was not attentive at all. Our drink glasses were empty for a very long time. I ordered shrimp tacos with only the pico de gallo on the side. My tacos came with everything on them..chipotle sauce, pico de gallo, and guacamole. I told the person that brought them that they were incorrect. I only wanted the pico de gallo on the side. After waiting a very long time for my food to come back, they were sent back plain with everything on the side. I felt as though this was the chef's way of displaying his annoyance at my request. Not once did our server come to apologize for the wrong dish or for the length of time it took to come back. I think he only came back to our table a total of three times during our entire time there and that includes when we ordered and when he brought the check! Again, I think Frida's can be a great place...but they seriously need to work on the service.

Great atmosphere. The food was good but a bit over priced. The Margaritas are the show stopper. Would recommend patio on warm days/nights. There was a huge breeze so it was a bit chilly and the heaters were smaller only covering a small area. I could see a good happy hour or girls night starting point.

The best food was, unfortunately, the Chips and Salsa. The rice was dry and had vegetables mixed in with it. It was more Asiatic in flavor than Mexican. The refried beans were watery without much flavor. The carnitas looked strange and had an unfamiliar flavor. The service was slow: 45 minutes between ordering and food arriving and I had to flag down a server every time my water glass needed refilling. The noise level was high making it difficult to talk. We had to circle the lot for 15 minutes in order to snag a parking spot. I realize that the parking is not under the control of the restaurant, but the limited parking is a detraction.

Julio, our server, was great! He checked on us at appropriate times and ensured that our bottomless mimosas were generously replenished. The food and selection were great - we were there for Sunday morning buffet and there was a ceviche bar and it was bomb. Easy to get a table with a reservation-wouldn’t show up on Sunday without a reservation.

Nice vibrant atmosphere, warm welcoming and seated quickly thank you Open Table. Service was great in the beginning but towards the end where was our server to be found? No explanation of them leaving or being on break were we had to flag down another to accommodate our table.

Arrived for a Friday night reservation. Seated immediately but then no server came by for about 15 minutes. Drinks were excellent but food was disappointing. My carnitas was flavorless, and my girlfriend’s steak burrito was heavy on the beans and light on the steak. Long wait to get check and again to get credit card charged. Overall super slow service and mediocre food.

The service was very slow, and certain items where no longer available at 1 pm. It got very hot inside, as if were not even on. A bit uncomfortable. It would be better if Mariachi had a set area, hard to maneuver around them or enjoy a conversation if they are at your table.
