    I am a 60+ yr-old NYC native that dines out often. This branch of Fonda was awfully l-o-u-d. And we're not talking Friday or Saturday night either....

    B[ery good addition to the Fonda group. I’ve eaten in all of them staring with the original in park slope . This newest one has great food and very pretty decor. The service was Extremely attentive but not effusive. The people were down town “chic”. Will return

    Almost the same menu as our local on Ave B but the food has improved, if that was at all possible. Favourite dishes and new ones too. Great decor, not too loud (they added soundproofing since our last visit), and the staff are incredibly friendly and personable. I regret their closing the EV restaurant, but this is worth the taxi ride!

    High quality and fresh Mexican come together in a lovely, modern space. Margaritas are strong and the service is friendly, albeit busy. Guac is a must have and the verde salsa is a nice addition to tacos. Vegan options aplenty.

    Hands down The Best Mexican food I have had in NYC or LA or otherwise outside of Mexico! The setting is beautiful, the service kind and invested in you having the best experience, and the kitchen displaying a level of Mexican culinary expertise that has eluded NYC diners, who care to discern and enjoy, for decades. No, I’m not on the payroll. I’m a Tribeca dad with two daughters who all were wowed.

    We have even been to Fonda several times and have enjoyed it each time. The food is consistently good, the service attentive, and the atmosphere is lively. It has become our "go to" neighborhood restaurant for Mexican food.

    If possible, add some noise cancelling panels inside. Extremely loud without being a full house (lots of echo). We brought our children so was a bit overstimulating for all of us but we are coming back very soon regardless, hopefully to snag an outdoor table next time!!!
