Great Cuban sandwich, rice, black beans. Service was only OK. Restaurant was busy, always a good sign. Parking is very limited. It's a small place, not fancy at all. Go for the food, not the atmosphere.

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

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

Good evening,

I frequent your restaurant regularly when I am in town. I am usually happy with the service as well as the food work with CBS television out of New York and was excited to take my sister to your establishment for a relaxing Friday afternoon. We ordered drinks as well as a pitcher of margarita and guacamole .

We then asked the server which chicken dish was better and which one came with the rice and beans. We decided to get the dish with the rice and black beans .

The dish came in a timely fashion, we fixed our respective plates and started to eat. I went up to the waiter to ask where our black beans were.

He stated I ordered the wrong meal and came over to take our plates. Well I do realize mistakes happen since it was his and not ours you do not remove the plate from in front of us. You remove the serving dish , which still had a large remainder of food since we split the thigh.

Then a man comes up and says that is not right to eat the food if it is a mistake it goes to the waiters to eat. The proper thing would have been for him to introduce himself as the manager and what seemed to be the problem , I proceed to inform him of the mistake the server made .He informed me it was my word (and sister) against his server?!!

I ask him for the manager and he says yes he is the manger, no name , nothing.

I am surprised at the level of service because for the last couple of years when I was in town I was happy with the food.

I asked another server for the manger again who now has brought us the correct dish we ordered and proceed to berate me that this was not right to have eaten the food, well this was not our mistake and on an already 40 dollar tab including the tip it would have behoved the manager to have had better etiquette.

After requesting that this "manager" Alonzo give me the corporate phone number I explained the incident to Gerry. He as courteous, listened and emphasized. I give you kudos for having him on your management team.

What a lot of people do not realize that one and now two people tell a friend about the bad service that friend tells a friend,etc. By that time 20 people are now expressing their negative opinions to possible customers or future customers of yours. I say this to perhaps keep your "manager" Alonzo from being rude and abrasive to someone else. Things may be lost in translation , but is up to the individual whose native language is not english to be more sensitive in how they word things.

Thank you for allowing me the platform to express myself since I do Public Relations in television I am very patient in how I express myself to people.

Their salsa is what other salsas wish they could be. If you don't like cilantro, though, you may not agree. I've had most things on the menu and it's all fantastic for vegetarians and meat eaters too. Everything is so reasonably priced. You can't go wrong at this restaurant.

For a quick, always good, inexpensive Mexican meal, you can't beat La Fonda Latina. Salsa is perfectly spicy, not too much of anything, and the quesadillas can't be beat.

The food was what I expected. There was nothing wrong with it, but it was just average. I guess from what everyone said I thought it would be great. You do have your choice of many types of Latin American food. There is outdoor setting. I would go back but it wouldn't be my first choice.

I eat here regularly for lunch for its speedy service, choice of outdoor, indoor, or partially outdoor (covered roof) seating. The food is good Cuban fare - I like the vegetarian paella, the quesadillas, and especially the Cuban sandwiches (my preference is the chicken, but my husband loves the traditional). They do a brisk to go service for lunch as well - call ahead and they'll have it packed to go with chips and salsa too - the salsa is great. And don't forget the sweet tea - my favorite tea in the area.

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 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!

Cons: dinner time waits

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!

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 for me.

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

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 went 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!

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.

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 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.

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.

La Fonda isn't going to win any major awards for their food, but it provides confort food for a reasonable price. The place is usually busy, but I have never waited for a table. I enjoy the fried plantains & the chicken cheese quesadilla. It's nothing fancy or adventurous, but I always leave satisfied.

Catch a summer breeze on the Ponce La Fonda's upper deck (or lower patio). La Fonda's salsa comes quick and always tastes fresh. One of my favorite dishes, the fish tacos, always arrive hot, with crispy, crunchy fish nestled inside. Pitchers of margaritas go down quick here, but the staff doesn't mind if you just sit back and enjoy the day.

Editorial from

With brightly painted murals, tropical plants and a frisky, young crowd, this casual Cuban restaurant is the perfect spot to share a pitcher of house-made, fruit-laden sangria and a big hot bowl of queso fundido. Salads here are generous…
