We understand social distancing and all, but we were put at a table literally in the middle of a major walkway/thoroughfare. The only table like it in the restaurant. It made for a rather chaotic dining experience with towers of plates and everyone walking by every few seconds.

We left Magic Kingdom to eat here because everything was booked at MK and we wanted to enjoy our lunch/dinner without the hassle of mobile ordering and not finding seats. It was a very busy day at MK during COVID so we cut it short and went to Disney Springs to enjoy Frontera. We have eaten here several times and each time is wonderful. I cannot seem to order anything other than my steak dish. It is just too good. We always order guacamole, chips and salsa. The two salsas are so fresh and tasty. I get more chips and salsa each time because I love it. The salsas are not spicy just flavorful. Everything we ordered was wonderful! Highly recommend this location for lunch or dinner. Great drinks also- unfortunately I had to drive so I was unable to imbibe this trip. We will be back!

We arrived about 25 minutes early for our reservation (dependent on Disney bus to Disney Springs, so I assumed it would be better to go early), but they were able to seat us without any issues. Food and service were excellent, as I expect from a Rick Bayless restaurant. The Beef Short Rib Mole was incredible - highly recommend.

.Cannot remember the name of person at the door who modified existing reservations but she was so polite and helpful and we appreciate it. Jessica our sever was excellent. First time here for friends who have never been big Mexican food fans and they loved the meal. Many offerings for our one friend who is gluten allergic.
The food was inviting, superb, fresh, plentiful, hot, delicious and all over a very relaxing meal. The fact that restaurant was only functioning at 50% was comforting. Will we be back? Definitely.
Don’t forget to have an avocado margarita. I am not a frozen drink fan but loved the avocado margarita and it tasted so “healthy” I had to have two🤣

I wish I took pictures of the food but it was all fantastic. Service was great - paying 20$ for a house margarita... seems pretty ridiculous. My husband and I both had 2 - we we had 80$ in margaritas.... but food and service was fantastic

Disappointed in the food in general. Guacmole was salty--chips tasted a bit stale. We have been here before and the food was AMAZING! This time it just left a lot to be desired. I had the carne asada entrée and the steak was A SALT BOMB. the refried beans were tasteless. For something we really looked forward too it really let us all down. We will not be back.

Excellent service! Queso fundido was so good! Our entrees were cochinita pibil & carne asada tacos Both were perfect, tender, delicious salsa verde. The entrees were quite large. We started with a blood orange margarita and a classic margarita, both excellent
We will definitely be back

We went here with high expectations given the good reviews, however, the food was mediocre. The shrimp mojo de ajo wasn’t anything special, the rice came out cold. Also, the carne Asada was very bland.
Definitely not worth the price we paid.

The inside was nice not quite as festive as I thought it might be. The food was very good. The one thing I didn't care for was that they kept the doors open and there was a fly that got inside and landed on our Guacamole, so we didn't finish that. We had to keep shooing it away, a little bit of a pain. It was so "Spooky" because it seemed as if our waiter could hear everything we were talking about because he would say something that was in reference to what my husband and I were talking about, stuff about the menu and my preference about a certain item. I felt like our table was bugged, weird!! Not sure if we'll be going back there.

I was craving mexican food and I am so happy that we picked to come to Frontera Cocina! It was the perfect dinner to satisfy my craving! We started out with their mango guacamole which was incredible. For drinks, I had the Viuda Negra margarita which tasted delicious both were absolutely amazing. Such great authentic flavors in every bite. Such a cool place to visit and eat — can’t wait to go back!
