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 am a huge fan of Mexican food and had a great meal recently at Fonda. My fiance and I had the guacamole to start which comes with a good portion of warm tortillas and chips. As for entrees, I ordered a sauteed shrimp dish served over creamy rice and beans while my fiance got skirt steak; we shared a side of plaintains. I really like spicy food and these dishes had a good amount of kick, so beware to those who can't do a lot of spice. Decor is fine and the space appears small, but they have outdoor seating in the back. Service was extremely helpful. My fiance had to send her skirt steak back because she has a cream/dairy allergy -- the sauce contained dairy even though the first waiter said it didn't have any. The second waiter who helped us quickly took care of the issue and even comped us the entree. Great customer service!

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.

They don't sell burittos that's the only problem. The bartender make good drinks. They give you a small portion of rice to share between 2 people. Food portions are decent just the right size. The guacamole and chips were really good.
