Was taken there for lunch by friends while visiting San Antonio. The resturant was very clean and the staff very cordial. Our food was served in a timly manner and was absolutely delicious. If you are visiting San Antonio this place is a must and needs to be at the top of your dining experience. Oh did I mention that the salsa was some of the best I've ever had? More...

The food here was pretty incredible. I got the Chorizo Benedict and the fried cinnamon-sugar bowl with fresh fruit was a really great touch. We all had great experiences with the food itself! It was pretty busy for a Sunday, but even taking that into account, our service was subpar. The need to hire more servers, as we waited a long time between refills of chips, waters, and other beverages. It was blazing hot outside, so I felt they could have been more speedy in getting people more beverages and the checks at the end of the meal with more hands on deck. The servers themselves were friendly and wonderful, they were just understaffed and doing their best. More...

Best skirt steak I’ve ever had. Comes with potatoes. Bar knows how to make really great margaritas. Great location on the edge of downtown plenty of parking. You won’t regret it. A little pricey. Spent around 80$ for me and a guest. Will be back. More...

I'm sure I'm not the oldest patron of LaFonda, but I have to be near the top of the list of those enjoying it the LONGEST - 70 YEARS now. The priorities when visiting San Antonio are LaFonda, The Alamo, and The Riverwalk, in that order. And the last visit is always THE BEST. Love what you've done with the menu. Very special! More...

Surprisingly vegan friendly. They bend over backwards to accomidate adjusting any plate to make it vegan, and once it gets to you its delicious! I had the spinach enchiladas with chipotle sauce. (Hold the cheese please) I sampled my dinner dates mole enchiladas (also without cheese as requested) and they were delicious too. Next time I may get mole.Our drinks were great. When I asked for extra spicey sauce (chile) they had some ready in the back for guests like me who like it hot! More...

Really good traditional Mexican food served in a way that is definitely Texan being from Bellingham Washington LOL. Expect things to be a little spicier than normal if you have a non spicy pallet. Think of everything being two stars :-) at work for me and I loved it! Great lemonade had really good wait staff. More...

been coming here for years. While not known for their Margaritas they are without a doubt the best in a town known for Margaritas. They don't use some nasty syrup for their mix. Every morning they squeeze fresh limes. Food is great too. This isn't a Tex Mex place. This is modern Mexican fare. I've never had a bad experience or plate. If there is any downside it is that the bar is small. Which isn't a big deal since you can have a seat inside or outside under some of the most majestic Oaks in all of San Antonio and enjoy drinks while they keep bringing you chips and salsa. I love this place. Wish I lived closer. More...

I am a fan! I took some potential out-of-state clients here in the middle of the week, and they absolutely loved it. It was a wonderful introduction to the San Antonio culture and people. The atmosphere is very classy and the meals are classic, but served in a contemporary fashion. The food tastes as good as it looks. It wasn't too loud to chat, and was just really inviting. One thing to note is that there may be a wait time, so use the Google app. You're already here browsing the app, so you might as well make a reservation. You are welcome. More...

Just what I needed on my return. As I visit San Antonio regularly this is where I chose to enjoy my first meal on this visit. It did not disappoint. The patio is lovely and perfect with the ambiance that can help anyone relax. My waiter was lovely, gave great recommendations and when I told him the kind of margarita I like, he did not disappoint. The margarita was hand made and off menu, so be sure to request it. I had the Mole Xiqueno's, and wow, it was perfect. The chips did not seem to be home made, but everything else made up for it. The salsa was fresh and refreshing and wonderful. Do yourself a favor and visit. More...

Let me first share a bit of history. I've been eating at La Fonda as long as I can remember; that's 50+ years. This particular La Fonda has changed hands but still tries to stay true to the original menu. The salsa has stayed the same for decades. If it ain't broke don't fix it! My other favorite thing, and that of many others, is the chalupa compuesta. There is nothing like it anywhere else in town. In fact, chalupas are not all that common a menu item. On top of my all-time favorite dinner I added a new item...Mexican Manhattan. I've never tasted anything like it. Not as sweet as a margarita but a more sophisticated take with tequila. I highly recommend you give them all a try. More...

Exceptional service, amazing food. The la Fonda special has a little bit of everything. The chili rubbed steak was so tender, and the potatoes were amazing. Truly a great experience. A lot of people were dressed in suits and dresses, but we were in jeans and casual attire and were not out of place. There is a large variety if margaritas, but they were very light on the tequila so that could be improved on but nothing else comes to mind as they were nearly perfect! My new favorite upscale restaurant when my favorite dive Mexican go to places just won’t do. You won’t be disappointed. More...

Came highly recommended. Looks like this place don't need anymore great reviews. They deserve every one of them. We were lucky to get in on a Friday night without reservation for 4. This place looks and feels very welcoming. The beautiful decor in a very quaint area of town. Since it's our first time this is a very exciting experience for us.We were quickly seated and we made our choices. Our friends went with the Mahi special and the beef fajitas. We ordered the duck tacos, carne asada, and mango salad. The salad were fresh and refreshing with the sweetness of the mango and hint of ginger. The duck tacos were flavorful, moist and have a very nice soft taco. Carne Asada were cooked to order. The desserts were the icing on the cake... mango mousse, the flan and churros are the must get. Fresh, not overly sweet but all so satisfying. More...

Really good food here and definitely more upscale than your typical run of the mill restaurant. Prompt service and attentive waiter created an atmosphere that allowed our table to truly enjoy our food and company.To start...their chips and salsa are fresh as can be and packed with flavor. Nicely salted crispy chips and fresh light salsa go a long way, and really get your tastebuds "warmed up" for your entree.For the main course, I had their Chile Rellanos and it was off the hook! Healthy portion with an enchilada on the side that absolutely rocked my world. I was more than happy with the flavor and serving size (quite large and definitely enough for 2 people).Pricing are a bit premium, but I suppose that makes sense when embarking on a dinner at an establishment such as this. Excited to return and to try out some of their other dishes! More...

Do yourself a favor and get a prickly pear margarita! Wow! The decor is warm, kind of like you're at a friend's house and the chips are bottomless, warm, and crispy! Salsa is fresh and never ending and the guacamole is recommended. We all ordered our own and really cleaned up our plates. I personally had "The Favorite" which included moist grilled chicken, rice, beans, and avocado. It really hit the spot! I also got the churros for dessert -- crispy, sweet, and still soft on the inside. Everything was fantastic! More...

Lovely backyard. Service was fast. Had the duck and mahi tacos. Both were really good. The tacos were soft and tasted freshly made. The salads accompanying the tacos however was nothing exciting. Especially the cactus was tasteless. Their frozen margheritas were really good too. Recommend going for the strawberry! More...

We returned a few weeks later, and had dinner here. We sat in their cramped dining area, not the bar. The tables are really close to each other, so you will be rubbing elbows with other diners if you choose to dine-in. We ordered a couple of their Blood Margaritas. I like their margarita 'cause it's not sweet! As for food, we ordered the Queso Fundido with Chorizo to share, the Super Burrito with Fried Chicken for me and Fish Tacos (3) for the hubby. More...

Wow. We just happened on this Mexican restaurant because it was in walking distance of the hotel. The beef fajitas were the best....I mean best ever. Normally I choose chicken over beef but I will never do that here. Service was excellent and chicken tortilla soup was incredibly filling and delicious. Don’t miss out in the homemade flour and corn tortillas either. Can’t say enough. We will be back next time we are in town. More...

Whenever I have a friend coming to visit San Antonio, this is one of the places I like to take them.

Of course, I am biased because I like good enchiladas, and there are many different types to try. More...

La Fonda is my go to place for comfort food. We are not talking about tex-mex. We are talking about South of the Rio Grande food. I have not looked at a menu in a very long time. When you walk in the door for lunch on your right is is the Specials for lunch listing. The only problem is you will wish to try everything. If you go for lunch, go early. I like 11:30. And if the weather is good, there is a wonderful outdoor eating area.Be sure to save room for a little after dinner something either of the liguid or sweet variety The service matches the food. Always First Class. More...

Quick disclaimer: My fiance and I went to San Antonio for the first time so we haven't tried any other places in San Antonio. We were looking for a great Mexican restaurant with good margaritas. I'm from Houston so I know what good Mexican food is and I know how it doesn't have to be expensive to be amazing. With that being said...This was the best Mexican fine dining restaurant ever. Great vibe. Great decor. We did not make reservations but they were able to accommodate us right away. We sat down and the waiter arrived shortly and gave us reccomendations. Margaritas were on point. We got the queso fundido with the duck carnitas. I don't know what the other reviews are talking about. It was amazing. The waiter prepared a taco with them for both of us. The corn tortillas....omg. So fluffy. So tasty. Amazing. For the meal, we had the carne asada and the guajillo flank steak. All very tasty. Plus we had the tres leches cake. All very delicious. Yes. It was expensive for Mexican food. But we thought it was worth it. Everything was very delicious and well done. Plus the service was top notch. The waiter made sure my fiances' allergies were taken into consideration. And anytime her water glass was empty he was promptly there to fill it up. We saw people of all walks of like there too so I don't get the other reviews that said otherwise. If you're looking for amazing food and service in a casual fine dining environment and don't mind the higher price point, this place is worth it. Highly recommended. More...

I was really impressed with this restaurant. The outdoor patio was heated and great even on a cold day. We were there just in time to see the sunset and the lights turn on. Great ambiance.The food was great too. We had a special of cabrito nachos. They were great. Each nacho was individually made and I was happy they used fresh fried tortilla chips (as opposed to their generic table chips).I also had the arrachera al guajillo which was great. The steak was very tender. The potatoes were the star of the meal. Potatoes, corn, cheese, meat drippings. Mmmmm More...
