Excellent guacamole with fresh tortillas. Specials are great. Get the 'pineapple' margarita! Takes Open table reservations. Happy hour at the bar (if you can find a seat).

Great food, awesome atmosphere, if you can request to eat in the outside area, do it. Don't miss out on the guacamole appetizer, and the sweet plantains side!

Finally made it to Fonda this past weekend after longingly passing it on the street for months. It was absolutely delicious. So delicious, in fact, that we made it back a 2nd time in the same weekend. Brunch is a must. You pretty much can't go wrong picking what to eat. The outdoor patio is fantastic when it's warm enough out. Even the beans and rice are loads better than any other mexican place around. Definitely want to go back to try a margarita.

The food at Fonda is amazing. I've ordered nearly everything on the menu and have not been disappointed with a single dish. Some of my favorites include the tortilla soup, enchiladas suizas, and pork adobo. Their margaritas are excellent, as well. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, and I especially love their back terrace when weather permits. The reason I withheld a star is that the service is very hit/miss. I really love the food so I accept the inferior service (ex. missing hostesses, longer than desired waits, incorrect orders, etc.), but I know that not everyone will tolerate it. If you're looking for excellent, high-end Mexican, I definitely recommend Fonda.

I had never been to Fonda and went for valentines because they had a reasonable price prix fixe. I'll start with the bad. We had to wait around 30 minutes in the freezing cold after arriving at our reserved time, the hostess mumbled our name so quietly if we hadn't been right behind her we wouldn't have heard and I'm wondering if that was her intention, tables seated after us were served guac and drinks before us even though we ordered before them, and they ran out of one of the desserts which I had been excited for. Otherwise the experience was pretty good. The guacamole was good and you could get it with chips or tortillas which worked out well because my girlfriend and I prefer different things. The sopa de tortilla was terrible for me, borderline inedible. It tasted like a bowl of salty chicken gravy. The flautas were amazing, fresh and crispy and highly recommended. The pollo norteno was good as well, well seasoned and the cured red onions gave it a nice contrast. My girlfriend got the carne asada which was cooked well and not too mushroomy, the sauce was rich and creamy and we both enjoyed it. For dessert I we had the tres leches and some apple empanadas. The tres leches was very good though I didn't enjoy the empanadas. I had a hibiscus margarita with my meal, I'm not a huge tequila fan and it was ridiculously strong but I could see it being enjoyable. Even with the negatives I would definitely return to Fonda, I hope I can update my review to 4 stars next time.

This is one of my favorite Park Slope spots. I always get the same thing - Chicken Chilaquiles Rojas and a Rosalita (hibiscus flavored frozen tequila drink). Food is always reliably delicious and the drinks are fabulous. I think the bottomless brunch option is a good deal. Service is always very good, if a little too attentive at times. Guac is delicious as well!

After wanting to dine at Fonda for what must be years at this point, I maybe had high expectations for my first experience. Upon arrival, I was earlier than my dinner mate so I ordered a glass of wine, but at 7pm, the bartender was out of clean wine glasses. We were seated at one of the cramped tables in the front of the restaurant to begin our meal with the spicy guacamole and chips. Sadly, the guacamole was just meh. not too spicy (but wow, that chipotle side sauce was good), the chips were like razors in my mouth and the enchiladas suizas were served in rather thick corn tortillas in an overly limey sauce. Not exactly impressed so I doubt I will return, at least to this location. Important: If you're dairy-free, be sure to specifically ask for no cheese on every dish. Despite us letting the server know of my partner's food allergy, they still put it on the guacamole and the beans, which were shared items.
