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...
Dinner was small, but exceptional. Best stuffed poblano with a slightly sweet cream on too. Five out ten of us ordered. Chips were excellent also.
The Classic! Fine Mexican food dining.
Perfectly executed Tex-Mex food. The outdoor patio is a must to get the full experience.
Food was really fresh and well cooked, drinks were top notch and service was amazing. Strongly recommend outdoor seating, it’s beautiful
Love it...food is awesome..great service
Our fav place...
Lived up to all our expectations. Food was great and our server was as well.
Wow this place was fantastic...
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...
As usual they did a great job!
Food is good and flavorful. Enjoy the atmosphere as well. Make reservations as it is a popular place to eat. Free parking across the street.
Great food, great atmosphere!
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...
One of my absolute favorite places to go when I’m in San Antonio. You really get a refined experience set in an older neighborhood. Everything on the menu is great and I always find it difficult to choose. 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...
The service was incredibal and the food magnificent
Great food. Great drinks. Great atmosphere. Great service. My wife and I love this place and have never had a bad experience here.
Amongst the favorite places in San Antonio.. Make sure to call for reservation beforehand...Place is amazing and busy!!
One of the best Mexican restaurants in San Antonio!! Fresh Food and and a great vibe!!
Huge fan of this restaurant. The food/drink and service are absolutely incredible. Only complaint is that multiple times I have had to wait over 30 mins even with a reservation. Only regret is that I didn’t come more hungry. 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...
Great food drinks and service
Waitress was amazing.
Love the enchiladas.
great ambiance, great food, beautiful building inside and out!
I rarely write reviews, but had too. The food and service were awesome! You will not be disappointed.
bartender named Jackie makes the perfect cocktail
Simply amazing. The tampiqueña was sublime and the wife really enjoyed her milanesa. They also made something off-menu for my son! Great service!
The food and waitstaff are wonderful! The restaurant is beautiful. The twinkling lights in the trees on the patio are breathtaking! The atmosphere of the restaurant makes you feel like you are actually in Mexico. We will come back for more! Thank you Andrea and all the staff for excellence service! :) More...
The atmosphere was delightful. The food and service were perfect. I loved the colored lights that came on when the sun set. The drinks were just right. I would definitely recommend going here!! More...
The enchila roja de queso and chicken poblano casserole were AMAZING! We went with a group of 40+ and the service was also amazing. We were in their room to the back and it was beautiful. Will definitely go back and enjoy their outdoor space. More...
One of my favorites in San Antonio. I am movong to Oregon soon so thought I would eat here one last time before I depart.Weekend migas with the fruit bowl is always a win!
A San Antonio tradition for quality mexican food in an upscale atmosphere.
One of downtown's little favorites
Best food in S.A.
Amazing food and atmosphere. Fabulous cocktails and desserts. Has been around since 1932 for a reason!Also they have unisex restrooms available!
Terrific food, atmosphere, and service!
For real authentic Mexican you have to go to this place
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...
Great place. It has all you look for a wonderful evening. Ambience, great food authentic Mexican and above all perfect cocktails. Our favourite was Chili cocktail with cucumber.. must go. More...
Service is excellent
Been going to La Fonda for over 60 years. Great food, beautiful surroundings, great service, free parking right across the street. Not a thing not to like...they've been doing it right forever. More...
Great food and drinks
Excellent food. Waitress was wonderful. Dinner specials and appetizer was enjoyable.
A gem! Beautiful place. Clean, excellent food, courteous staff. Unique menu and cocktails. Don't miss this one!
Best Mexican food in San Antonio
Awesomely good food, and great service
Great atmosphere. Make reservations, they are very busy.
Food was really good service was great
Great service and great food and drinks.
For a while, I thought La Fonda served only Tex-Mex food. Well, was I wrong! I enjoyed a traditional Oaxacan (southern Mexican) plate which was on point. Presentation was excellent and I would love to find out where they buy their ingredients, especially their cheese More...
We had a group of 10 meeting up from various locations and La Fonda was central to everyone. Our table was ready, the waitstaff was excellent and the food was OUTSTANDING! Our waiter even took a couple of pics for us! It had been years since I had been to La Fonda, but I will be back soon! Thanks for a lovely lunch! More...
My favorite in San Antonio
Food was amazing. Service was even better. I had the Tex mex enchilada plate and they were some of the best i have ever had. I will return and recommend this place to others. 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
Always great food and service. Atmosphere is great too.
Nice atmosphere except for the birds flying around outside. Great presentation of the entrees, the taste was wonderful, and our server was awesome! I did not like the one check only for the entire table policy, but whatever works for them. I know next time not to eat there with a party. More...
Best fajitas I’ve ever had!
A great great WONDERFUL restaurant. This not only the best Mexican restaurant in san antonio but the best in the United States.
Delicious food beautiful patio great drinks
The service was amazing, the margaritas to die for and in such a beautiful spot/building but the food was so/so.
Good food nice place....
One of our favorites. The food is authentic! The Chef's tacos of the day always magnificent!
This is the best Tex Mex Fusion in the city!!!!
Great meal, the patio is very nice and comfortable, our server Victoria was super.
Was a private function. Great food. Service was great.
We have been to La Fonda a couple times and it is absolutely awesome! It's my wife's favorite Mexican place. The food is awesome the drinks are great and the atmosphere is great. They have a beautiful outside patio! Highly recommend La Fonda, you want be disappointed!!!! More...
Good food great service
Good Mexican menu. No spicy food.
Great food, a neighborhood restaurant and a must go to place for tourists!
Good place tasty and friendly:)
The food is excellent and the margaritas are better!
Been going ever since I was a kid & the food has never been bad. The chefs are always considerate of my avocado allergy and I've never had a bad reaction to meals that we're normally prepared with avocado.
Lawrence Slatter III
All around great food.
Good place and real good food with friendly people
I really enjoy eating at this place. IlThe food and the drinks are always delicious! The staff is always friendly.It’s just too bad local patrons bring their young kids in after 7pm (seems like every visit)
Good above average
Class reunion was so much fun !
Lovely restaurant especially outside. Dined with 3 friends and we all enjoyed our food
Best Mexican restaurant in town. Where we take visitors.
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...
Delicious margaritas and food. Went for a bachelorette party and sat outside on the patio, it was fun and reasonably priced.
Wonderful patio dining under a majestic ancient oak. The Chile Relleno was tasty and not overly breaded and the salsa had a nice fresh taste.
Excellent dining. Drinks are great, food is even better. Good wait staff, clean restrooms, plenty of parking. We were a group of 12 and food was all delivered at the same time, chips n salsa were plentiful, tea was tasty. All around great evening. ♂️ More...
Albert Del Rio
Great service and good food!
Pretty good dining experience. The menu was limited the day we ate here, but I would definitely come back. Rated 4 because it wasn’t the best ever, but Is was good.
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...
Fabulous atmosphere. Vintage feeling. Delicious food and great service. Totally loved it.
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...
Food was great and customer service was on point. Just a bit too much $$ for enchiladas verdes. Could have been better for that price. I wish I could show cooks how to make the sauce. That has great taste. More...
Found our new favorite Mexican in San Antonio. High end in a great setting with addictive chips and salsa. Great service as well.
The food was amazing, the atmosphere delightful and the margaritas worth the price. Highly recommend. We had the steak fajitas which were flavorful and tender. The chips and salsa at the beginning of the meal we the best we've had in a while. The chips were made to perfection and the salsa had the right amount of heat. More...
Delicious meal and fantastic margaritas. We come here when visiting San Antonio every time.
The food was world class,shrimp perfectly prepared and executed. Service was impeccable
Amazing drinks. Amazing food. Amazing service.
Pretty good great service
Awesome soup and great service!!
Term for an office luncheon delicious enchiladas!
Not a real fan of Mexican food but this restaurant served amazing Mexican/texmex cuisine. The venue was cosy and the servers wonderful. Totally recommend this place.
Great food and excellent service. Best margarita in the city.
Everything about this place is excellent. Atmosphere, staff, drinks, all amazing. The food is a wonderful array of Tex Mex with prime ingredients and bold flavor combinations.
Had the mixed grill and it was yummy. I particularly liked the accompanying rice with nopalitos.
Super delicious! The chips were perfect, and the duck tacos are on point!
Really enjoyed the drinks and lunch before heading home to Plano. La Fonda Special is shown.
Upscale mexican food in a lively environment. Everything about this place was five star. I had the bistek enchiladas with their famous house enchiladas sauce. They were so good, make you wanna slap yo mama! They're chips and salsa were on point. The service was friendly and attentive. More...
One of my favorites
We had a large private party here, 40 or so people on Memorial day weekend. They set up a nice buffet for us and provided a dedicated bar tender who did a great job. The servers were quick efficient, and polite. All the food was good, but I highly recommend their tamales. More...
Great private room setup for events. Service and food top notch as well
Great Fajitas, service, and delicious margaritas
Always the best!
Great food, excellent venue.
Yum. Best margaritas. Of course I'm from Ohio so how do I know? Good shrimp with garlic and fajitas.
We had a large group of friends in for dinner at La Fonda and the overall experience was wonderful! The wait staff was very attentive and made sure everyone had everything they needed. Everyone found something on the menu and were all very pleased with the food. I loved the variety of cocktails and small plates! I ordered several different drinks along with ceviche and the duck tacos! The tacos were so delicious, light crunchy and perfect. If you're ever in the area definitely check out this gem, we will for sure be back. More...
The mole enchiladas are on point!
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...
Lots of fun and good food
Food and service was very good. Outside seating is beautiful.
Gina Sue Bradley
Driving six hours just to eat at La Fonda makes sense. From the salsa and guacamole to the enchiladas suiza, the freshness of the food melts in your mouth. The iced tea makes me smile. Always helpful and friendly, the service staff are the best. More...
Lot of old Mexican food recipes
Beautiful place and very good food,
So many choices for Mexican food in San Antonio...this place came recommended to me while traveling for work. very pleased with the food and service! I enjoyed delicious beef fajitas, mojito, and flan! More...
Great food, and I enjoy the ambience on the patio. Excellent service!
My absolute favorite restaurant in San Antonio! Upscale Mexican in a beautiful environment
Very nice environment, just wish we had a chance to try the food. We had to leave on an emergency. Next time gadget, next time!
As a Mexicana, must say the food here was authentically flavored, and outstanding! Lovely patio, great friendly service...a must!
Very nice restaurant fresh ingredients
High-end Mexican food. Consistently good quality, great service.
We were visiting San Antonio and wanted some authentic Mexican food. We decided to try La Fonda on Main and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was lively and the server was great. We had a large party and he was able to handle our group very well. The margaritas with the chili rim were delicious and well made. The highlight of the visit was the Pozole Verde soup. I would definitely suggest this restaurant to a friend. More...
They have an awesome waiter name Nathan. Very nice,always checks up on you. AWESOME WAITER.
Delicious! Excellent service and great food. Loved margaritas & I could eat their house-made chips all night too.
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...
A San Antonio Dinning Staple !!!
Susan from San Antonio
Always great food but always a long wait without reservations.Food is a bit overpriced but you pay for atmosphere. Great outside patio
Some of the best Mexican food in town!
mexican food... super satisfying. service is always super even when they have a full house. service is typically great.
They adapted quickly to a big party
Outstanding food and service!
The blest food and terrific atmosphere. A wonderful combination to make for a truely enjoyable time
Great place.. great food.
Great place to have Sunday brunch. Totally enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff was terrific!
Excellent food and normal sized portions. Draws a good crowd for lunch.
Food was excellent, service should have been better, will give La Fonda another try!
Great brunch. Great service. Great value.
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...
Excellent food excellent service
This is an AMAZING restaurant. The food is A++ HIGHLY RECOMMEND !
A Mexican experience,varied menu, good value for money.
My goodness, this place is truly amazing!!! Love it!!! the food, the service, great atmosphere and everything. Highly recommend, especially for special occasion.
Great food and what a great brunch place! Service was good#
Delicious fajitas, prompt service and a patio space that is tranquil and great for date night. Yes, I come back to it every time!
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...
Great meal! Very nice restaurant.
The La Fonda Special is really special. Also their back patio is a hidden treasure during a mild night.
Every time we come to San Antonio we always go to La Fonda. Great atmosphere, great food, great service
Alberte Katrine Schmidt
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...
The food was excellent. I dropped one star because even though I had a reservation, they still had us wait 30 minutes to get seated.
Sit on the patio!It is a memorable place with big trees and lots of twinkling lights. So romantic! Food is amazing and really affordable .
Great staff and good food. Also if you get a chance try the ceviche and fish tacos.
Very tasty upscale Mexican food. Busy at lunch, so call ahead and make reservations if you can.
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...
Ordered the La Fonda Special, and it was delicious!! Loved the service with a smile, and Ashley was generously tipped for her outstanding attitude.
Delicious food and margaritas
Good food and good service.
Had a large group event and was very well run from beginning to end. Plenty of food. Great service. Kept things clean and tidy. All the way down to coffee service at the end. More...
Great food, selection, and service.
Always crowded, so make a reservation. Great food and service!!
Great Mexican food
Best Mexican cuisine in town
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...
One of my favorite quintessential San Antonio restaurants. Great lunch, happy hour, brunch or dinner. Always great! Al Fresco, especially
The food was outstanding!
One of my favorite places in San Antonio, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is even better, especially the back patio and the gorgeous ancient oak tree that shades it all. My personal meal of choice is the veggie fajitas, and they serve a near perfect margarita. Highly recommend More...
Whenever I have a friend coming to visit San Antonio, this is one of the places I like to take them. Between their truly Texas-sized portions to their attentive service and relaxed atmosphere, it is a great place to unwind after a long flight. Of course, I am biased because I like good enchiladas, and there are many different types to try. More...
The food was great, I would highly recommend to my friends..
Loved this restaurant!
Great all around
Great patio and food
I loved the atmosphere and the service was wonderful loved the food it was hot and very delicious I would go there again and again.
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...
Nice atmosphere, fast & friendly service, & great food
Great food and great service.
All the food is good. Best Mexican rice I've ever had
Exceptional Mexican restaurant. Reccomend sitting outside if weather permits.
The first time my husband and I went here our waitress was TERRIBLE but the food was so good we had to come back to give them another chance. Lemme just say Alejandro turned it all around! Amazing service to complement the amazing food. The mole enchiladas were delicious! 10/10 would come back. More...
cynthia de la garza
Had some appetizers and drinks with our four legged friend. Great service and atmosphere.
Easily one of the best restaurants I have ever been too. It was so good I don't even get mexican/tex-mex anymore because my brain always takes me back here. I came here in early November and now craving it again. 100/10 More...
I reccomend the queso with beef and guacamole.
I love the patio here. I've been several times for dinner, and the food and cocktails are always perfect. Today I went for brunch and it was soooo good. Blood orange mimosas and eggs benedict with chorizo. The best! More...
Great atmosphere, particularly the outdoor patio. They have some good dishes, but they lacked the spicy kick I like.
Excellent food and service
Food was good, but every dish was particularly spicy. Even the tortilla soup which isn't usually. A little pricey, but a nice location, good ambience.
One of the best Chile Rellenos I've had the pleasure of enjoying! Great atmosphere, comfortable noise level and great service.
Excellent food, and lots of it.
Me wife and I love this place, has to be our favorite spot in all of town. Food and ambiance won't disappoint.
A San Antonio staple
Excellent cuisine and service! A staple in San Antonio.
Food ia great, staff ia great, ambiance great, good feee parking. Reservations.
Great Margarita's, friendly staff, lovely location
In my opinion there is very little that separates mexican food - it's all good. La Fonda sets itself apart with great service, awesome atmosphere(sit outside), and the most unique mexican menu i've seen. And as a special bonus - the food is absolutely fantastic. Get the duck tacos, life changing. More...
The freshest authentic Mexican cuisine that I have ever tasted. Strawberry and basil margarita was excellent. Highly highly recommend.
Our family rented out the back room for my sisters Celebration of her Life
More than just the standard Mexican fare. Medium prices but the quality of everything is high. Their guocamole is Superb. The staff is attentive but smothering. There is a problem with noise but that is a factorof it's popularity. Get a reservation. More...
So many Tex-Mex and Mexican restaurants in town but I always end up here.
Always a great lunch!
I've always had a great time here. The food is fantastic and creative--and I've never been disappointed when I venture to have something different. Service is impeccable. I would seriously consider moving into that neighborhood just to be within walking distance. This place is special. More...
Great food. Great service.
Awesome Mexican food!
Gourmet Mexican in a comfortable setting
The portions are perfect, you don't feel like you've eaten too much but just enough. I recomend getting dessert.
Great Food. Great Margarita !
A consistent favorite! One of our go-to places for Mexican food. Fresh and delicious!
If you need an intimate wedding venue with the best food this is the place for you!! Great people, great service, and the neighborhood is incredible for bride and groom portraits. Make sure to check them out!
The patio steals the show. Food was less impressive.
Had the tortilla soup in the fajitas and both were delicious.
it was my first time visit and I absolutely adored the interior. I had went with the old number 7 and was blown away with how amazing that tasted the enchilada sauce is fantastic and I've never had something as nice before. Will definitely be coming back to try the rest of the menu. More...
Great Mexican. Lots of history and located in a nice historic area of the city.
The chili poblano de queso is quite possibly my favorite vegetarian dish anywhere. The outdoor patio is lovely, and the ice tea with lime and mint is fantastic. It's definitely a locals place and best to have reservations for weekend nights More...
Patsy Rider Harper
Great place our Hotel told us about you we are so pleased we thanked Hotel Emma
Drinks and food are great, prices are good as well.
Great food, fish excellent, service outstanding
Excellent food and drinks!!
Great out door dinning
Had a great lunch here.
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...
Always classy! Drinks are always on point!
Excellent food and pleasant environment.
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...
Beautiful ambiance. Food was okay.
The food was amazing! Not typical Tex Mex...and the margaritas were delicious!Wait staff so friendly and accommodating!!!
Excellent atmosphere, great staff, great food. A little pricey but you should expect that when you chose to eat here.
Delicious! Visited for a late weekday lunch. No wait, quick service. Tried a variety of enchiladas, all were very tasty. Save room for the churros, they cant be missed. More...
Yummy food and great service!
Great food, friendly staff.
We stumbled along this place with our (somewhat obsessive) searching for a good local restaurant. This an incredible experience. Victoria was immensely helpful as we navigated the menu. Her recommendations were spot-on. Everything—from the appetizers to the desserts—had a special flare and delivered on the excellence. More...
This place is absolutely divine. We went here to celebrate my birthday and it was absolutely delicious!! I had the fajitas and they we're juicy!! I would totally order again. The Mexican Martini was perfectly balanced. My boyfriend had the cucumber jalepeño margarita and mezcal Serrano margarita both were spectacular. I highly recommend this place for both the atmosphere and the food. Wait staff was excellent as well. More...
The trout was excellent!
Very good modern tex-mex
Beautiful atmosphere, cozy feel, and great food! I highly recommend
Great Tex Mex
Fernando V. Palacios
Food & drinks were excellent !!!
Dinner with friends. Place is great. Lots of space, just enough server attention, allowed to enjoy your meal with minimal interruption. Food was delicious. The negatives have to include parking. It can be difficult to find any. The only small negative about the meal was our salsa bowl and my water glass emptied and there was no offer to refill either, but I didn't ask either. Good meal! More...
Love the food! Great atmosphere!
My work had their company Christmas party here and they went above and beyond to make sure everyone, even with food allergies or diet restrictions got exactly what they wanted. They staff is absolutely amazing!
Great service, great food

Terrific atmosphere, a fine dining feel, everything is fresh and pleasing do the eye and the palette. Not a cheap place so plan to spend a few but definitely worth it
Amazing service and great food!
Lafonda has very good food, and a beautiful atmosphere. It is very pricey though. It has many vegetarian options.
Cute and delicious! I highly recommend for a quiet date and/or large parties. There's plenty of space with great outdoor seating.
Excellent Food. Nice Atmosphere
good location for quality mexican food.
Excellent service. Excellent food. Excellent margarita
Excellent service. And the way all of the waiters helped each other was amazing. Food was delicious
Excellent upscale Mexican food at this family owned restaurant in business since the 1930s
Authentic Mexican with great flavors
Seriously the best Mexican food I've ever had!!! Everything was amazing.
Best Mexican food in San Antonio. The atmosphere is amazing, especially if you can get seating on the patio under the large tree. The Lafonda Special is my go to dish, but the Fajitas are amazing too. Make sure you get one of their great margaritas. Personally I like their Gold Margarita. It's one of our favorite stops when we come to San Antonio. More...
Never a bad meal here. Thanks Cappy

Always a great visit for the last 20 years
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
Enjoyed the turkey cranberry mole enchiladas -- so creative and yummy. Great atmosphere and customer service.
A San Antonio tradition and always great food and service.
Very good food and cocktails. Excellent service and the atmosphere was outstanding. Expect to spend about $35 per person.
The service is the best. Fresh food with great portions. The guacamole is the best I've tried.
Great waitstaff service. Food was delicious.
Great food and amazing atmosphere
Nice atmosphere and service, but underwhelming food. The refried beans were bland, as were the enchiladas. I think everything needed more salt. Awesome tortilla soup, though!
