Love the vegan/ vegetarian options. It’s not just a salad or bowl or fake meat. Thank you

Uriel was an excellent waiter, very accommodating. We frequently eat at Cucina. I noticed they removed my favorite drink from the menu. I asked Uriel if he would ask the bartender if they had the ingredients to make the drink, and he was quick to find out and get me the drink. Dinner was delicious as always. The Quattro Leches cake was yummy!!! We will be back soon!! Love the food!!

It was okay. Seated right away. Server was okay. Neglected us at the end knowing that he will already have his tip incorporated into our bill since we were a party of 10. Expensive for mediocre food.

3 adults and 3 kids. We had 3 entres and 3 kids menus for lunch. 2 beers, 1 guacamole. Bill was over $200. Not worth the value of the food we had. For $50 I can have a Prime piece of steak at Morton’s. Don’t think I’ll come back.

We ate outside on the patio and it was sufficiently socially distanced from the next table. We had apps and drinks and the food was excellent as well as the service. This is our go to place when we dine out. Love it there. Never disappoints.

Our waitress Yeimy was what helped makes this meal awesome. She had great recommendations, was friendly, and had the made sure we were well taken care of. She highly recommended the play with fire margarita and it was exactly what I wanted. We got the carne asada entree which was excellent enough for two to share. The bacon guacamole was delicious... best guacamole I have had in a long while. The salsa that came with it was ok- the green was not a fave, and the red was good but not something I would crave per se. The guacamole was worth it! Def a must do next time at Disney Springs!

From one meal to another, portions are very different. I had as twice of food compare to my boyfriend's meal. I had the cochinita pibil and he had the carnitas. Food was good, service was good too. Allergens are marked on the menu. Patio is nice with the view on the river.

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
