While the atmosphere and decor of Fonda San Miguel are inviting, the real reason for dining at a restaurant, the food, was unimpressive, especially for one of a higher price point. It was fine and nicely arranged, though I enjoyed it no more than a restaurant for half the cost. Also, avoid ordering a mojito, as it was basically a cup of lime juice for $9 (four lime wedges in the glass) with little mint or sweetener.
Upon entering, the courtyard area is lovely and colorful and the dining room offers a pleasant ambiance, though the tables are a bit too close together as I had no room to adjust my chair. Furthermore, the citysearch provided dress code is accurate as myself and my company were in nice attire, as were most others, though jeans were worn by some and I noticed several tables with kids, though they were well enough behaved.
The environment was welcoming and nice, though the food was forgettable. A nice place to just grab a drink and sit in the courtyard, though for dinner, look elsewhere.
Pros- Atmosphere, Decor, Service
Cons- Price, Average Food

Theres so many great things about this restaurant I wish my wallet could handle it. I definitely recommend as a large group or a date to impress. Have never been let down with the food but I also never order the basic things like fajitas..my favorite dish is the cochinita pibil. Took my mom here for brunch last year's mother's day.. although it is also expensive it is very extravagant, plentiful, and beautiful. It was a very special mom date thats for sure.

We recently went here for a birthday celebration. I had heard it was pricey, but it was really too expensive for what you get. I don't like to have to ask what the price is for a particular dish and there you have to ask about the entire fish section. The food was good as far as I was concerned, but everyone else said it was just ""OK"". Some had the fajitas and said they were no better than any other Mexican restaurant, but double the price. We had margaritas and I was amazed that they would serve them in wine glasses!!! Get real. There were a few sips for $9 and by the way, ""happy hour prices"" are ONLY at the bar. I don't think we will go back any time soon, sorry to say. I had hoped for a much better experience.

if you like authentic mexican food, you'll love fonda. the ambiance is great, although a little loud. the food is very good and the price reflects that and then some. Its a little pricey considering i'm not a huge fan of mexican, i probably wouldn't go back. But i enjoyed going there for brunch.
