We had a wonderful dinner. The menu is not very big, but there is a perfect assortment of dishes to please even our pickiest eaters. The server was very friendly, letting me sample one of the margaritas to make sure I liked it before I ordered. We will definitely go back next time we are in the area.

Very difficult. Restaurant was very empty and they would not seat tables together and required our teenagers to have a parent sit woth them despite adults providing credit cards.

This was hands-down the best restaurant we had on our trip to Orlando. The service was amazing - Samantha was great. Amazing margaritas and one of the best fish dishes I have had! Liked it so much we went twice during our Orlando stay.

The staff was not very friendly or helpful given the difficulty to make it on time for reservations. Although we were there an hour early, the parking garage was closed and we were rerouted to another one that took an hour to enter. My daughter and I left the car and walked up to let them know since they're phone ran busy and we couldn't get them by phone. When we arrived to let them know they said they could hold our table for 15 min and we couldn't sit and have a drink until half the party arrived, which their defn was 5/7 people. I just thought they could have been more understanding given although we had a reservation that doesn't help us get a parking spot. The food was good, but the beginning really put a sour taste in my mouth and made it difficult to enjoy the evening. This was supposed to be to celebrate a special event and we didn't even wind up doing dessert there because it wasn't a great feeling. I truly expected more from Disney.

Had a WONDERFUL dinner here in Orlando for a friend’s birthday - 6 adults and 5 middle-schoolers at side-by-side tables. Our waiter was gracious, quick and efficient. The food was excellent - one of the best meals out we all can remember having, and we’re picky “foodie” types. SO flavorful, cooked perfectly. We all can’t wait to eat here again.

The carne Asada was extremely tough and rare. We were told it
Was going to be similar to fajitas from
The server and it wasn’t. Meal was extremely rushed and we felt like
They wanted to move the tables out very quickly.

The restaurant wasn’t even half full but the waitstaff was simply inattentive. The portions were strange. The salad was enormous, enough for four people. The taco plate was treated like a fine dining entree. A tiny amount of steak a small portion of beans and four tiny tortillas and they charged $24. It was unbelievable. The tortilla soup was the only thing we ordered that was both good and a good value. We ordered the blood orange margarita to $16 and it tasted like melted ice and cheap orange soda. Barely enough alcohol to qualify as a one shot drink. Definitely not going back.

We’ve been here before; the prices seem to be getting higher for the quality of the food.. don’t get me wrong, the food is good but it’s not a 5 star steakhouse either. We’re big Bayless fans but he’s got to get this place back under creative control

Made an OpenTable reservation several hours prior, but Frontera never saw the reservation on its end. We had to wait for a while past our reservation time before they could seat our party of 9. On a Monday night with a margarita special, it took at least 20 minutes to get margaritas after we'd ordered them. A few minutes after we'd ordered entrees, our waiter came back and said they were out of a couple selected sides and a type of meat in the enchiladas. We had to change multiple orders. The food was OK, and I felt our waiter was doing about as well as he could; but Frontera is a not a place I would recommend based on our experience.
