Overpriced for what felt like a robotic experience. Very loud. Very crowded. Extremely process driven, almost like eating at an Applebee’s or TGI Fridays, but 3x more expensive. Definitely not worth it. Bill was $300 for 4 adults and a toddler. We spent the same $ the night before at a place that was 10x better.

The food was pretty decent, but the prices we’re over the top for Mexican/Latin American. None of the food we ordered was amazing. It was just decent.

Unfortunately, it did not seem that that team was accustomed to handling large groups, despite the setting. It took us 45m to receive our bill, and the team mixed up the credit cards, resulting in parties of two, paying for parties of four.

The food was decent. It was well-flavored. I found the hostess staff to be a little rude; we did not complain. It was not that bad.

I've eaten at Frontera Grill in Chicago and a big Rick Bayless fan. This meal was just average. We could've easily had much better for half the price at a local Mexican restaurant. Let's face it, it's in Disney Springs so it's going to be packed all the time. The waiter was on top of it & he was the best part of our $178 meal for 2 adults & 2 kids! I would not recommend.

Our experience was not so good. We waited 15 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. The portions were very very small for the price. The waiter was very courteous and likable.

Frontera Covina never disappoints. It certainly is the best Mexican food in the Orlando area and it is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the State. If you are looking for gourmet Mexican, Frontera is the place to go.

Claudia provided us with OUTSTANDING service while training a new employee, Coral. Coral is already doing an amazing job and will be another OUTSTANDING server at Frontera. We had the mango guacamole and it was the best that we had ever had anywhere. We shared these comments with Claudia and Edgar arrived at our table shortly afterwards to share his gratitude of our comments. He is a great chef. Manager, Alejandro came by our table to ensure everything was perfect for our evening and we assured him that it was Great and everyone always makes us feel like part of the family. Great experience! OUTSTANDING SERVICE.

Ambience was close to a Chipotle. Tortillas and chips were no better than grocery store quality.

They ran out of enchiladas. No joke…they have different types of enchiladas on the menu w different sauces but said they “ran out” of all of them! Tacos were “build your own” which is weird and makes everything get cold faster. Everything was under flavored except the salsa which was very good.

I asked for a skinny margarita and server said “all of our margaritas are skinny” but several had juices and agave syrup in their ingredients so I couldn’t figure out what she was talking about. Service was barely there and server was totally unfriendly. Plates were thrown in front of us and server walked away.

Would never go back there…a really awful experience and I don’t have many of those.
