Overall
We felt like we were an inconvenience....

The food here was pretty good, but the staff here is not friendly at all. I kind of felt like we were inconveniencing them by being there. We are not demanding customers at all. I am always nice and appreciative to anyone who is waiting on me and I always tip at least 20% for just adequate service and I always tip more than that if I feel like the service is good. These people need to learn some people skills to be in this business. I felt so uncomfortable that I will never go back to ...view morethat location.view less

yummy queso

I love the queso dip here. Also the grilled chicken salad is amazing- so fresh!
the only down side is i always eat the entire bowl!
also- the restaurant can get noisy

Overall
the best

i go to la fonda at least 2 times a week. yes, youre going to get minimal smiling or conversation from the staff, but you will be hard pressed to find faster service anywhere else. due to the presence of a bunch of food runners, your chips and salsa will never run out, a definite plus if you show up starving or have to wait for a bit. the drinks are ridiculously cheap and the food is outstanding. the veggie tacos are my favorite meal, hands down, but i have never had anything there...view more that i didnt like. their take out is also a great value, because along with your meal you get a very generous serving of chips along with a large container of their salsa which, by the way, is far superior to salsa at many other similar (and often more expensive) places like sala, across the street, or la casita. if youre coming at dinner time, be prepared for a wait, but with such an efficient staff, it doesnt take that long. very highly recommended!view less

Overall
veggie friendly

We ordered the vegetable skewers and veggie burrito. Both excellent, very well seasoned and cooked crispy. We got a mojito pitcher, which was very sweet but savory, especially for the price. The service was decent, but it seemed as though the server absolutely hated his life. The rooftop patio was very cool, and the prices were very cheap!\r

I would definitely go back. Although the service wasn't exactly good, I've had much worse service. The food and atmosphere is worth it fo

!!!The best steak quesadillas this side of the border!!!

I eat there at least 6 times a week... The greasy steak quesadilla is to die for... Chips are okay, salsa is good.

Overall
good food - but not worth the rude staff and terrible service

The food here is good - no denial there. HOWEVER I have never been as infuriated when leaving a restaurant as I was after my experience at LaFonda. My friends and I went to LaFonda for dinner and drinks. Once we finally found a table - it's seat yourself without a waiting list - we sat for 30 minutes before a waiter came to take our DRINK order. I don't know why we didn't leave then. It was another 10-15 minutes before our food order was taken. The food was very good, yet when we ...view morewent to the register to pay the, the staff rudely stated they don't split checks. Being a group of 5, several of us didn't have cash, so needed to put a portion of the bill on a credit card. They pushed a sign in our faces saying they didn't split checks - and that we should know their policy. We told them we were very sorry but some of us couldn't pay without splitting checks and we were unaware of their policy until now. The woman at the register frowned, put her hands on her hips, and said ""I don't believe that you have never been here before, that is a lie"". She then cursed about us in Spanish to her fellow staff member thinking that none of us could understand spanish. Never in my LIFE have I ever been so rudely treated as a customer. Please consider yourself warned!view less

Overall
Great Paella! (But Not Much Else)

I would not order anything but their seafood paella, which is superlative especially consider how cheap it is. The salsa is also way above average, but everything else is mediocre at best--I was served stale iced tea the first time I ate there, and never ventured to order it again. The deck on second floor is a good spot on a cool sunny day to relax.

Bottom line: the seafood paella by itself is worth making a trip for.

Overall
Oddly disappointing

My husband and I went for dinner last night because he had been there for lunch and liked it. We both ordered chicken tacos, which is what he had ordered before. When they arrived they were not at all what we were expecting. They contained a few pieces of charred meat, browning lettuce, and what I assume was chipotle sauce. We asked the waiter why they contained no cheese as described on the menu. He took them back and had the cook add cheese. I then tried to eat mine, but the meat was...view more so charred I couldn't even bite into it. My black beans were cold. So we just paid and left. Maybe this was a fluke. I might try again with a regular customer who could tell me exactly what to order, because I can't believe the food is usually that bad. The salsa was good, at least.view less

Overall
Fast and Thrifty Cuban

This is a great place to eat if you are in a hurry. Try the items prepared off the grill, the quesadillas and the delicous poor-man's dishes like Paella and Arroz con Pollo.
