    LOVE Fonda. Given that we hope to dine there often, there are a couple thoughts we have; We like some spice to my Mexican food but have to say we were surprised how hot some of the dishes are. To the point where we weren't able to enjoy them as much given the effect on the taste buds. It might be good for the waitstaff to mention this so customers had the opportunity to put in preferences. Margaritas are a Mexican staple. We learned that they sweeten theirs with simple syrup. If they want to skip liqueurs that's fine but agave might be a better choice then.They were also a bit watery and not as strong as expected. Salt option was very heavily applied. I would love a pork taco option where the pork was pulled as opposed to chopped as their chicken taco is chopped. They also are a bit on the dry side, with the only liquid accoutrements offering being a green salsa that while delicious, was unbearably hot for us, on top of the taco itself which was hot on its own. the enchiladas had great flavor and texture, but again, so spicy we couldn't finish them. The soft blue corn tortillas are next level delicious. Happy to have them in the neighborhood.

    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.
