Frida's Mexican Restaurant

Has anyone tried Frida's Mexican Restaurant? I've been thinking about trying it and I'd love to know people's thoughts on this restaurant.

  1. I went about a year ago, I was not a fan... Was over priced for what it was and the quality of the food/service/decor were not great. It seems to have a bit of a following in the area. I went with a Groupon at the time and even with the Groupon I felt it wasn't really worth it.

    Maybe someone else has been more often and enjoyed different dishes than I had (sorry, forget what specifically I ordered)...

      Thanks ylsf. I know it's been around for a while, but I haven't really heard much about it.

    2. The Sunday brunch at 10:30AM has more varied dishes and is less expensive per plate.

      1. My husband and I went there for the first time a couple of months ago, and were underwhelmed. Not awful or anything, but it just didn't live up to the positive reviews and the fairly high price. Sorry to not be more specific re dishes, but I've forgotten the details by now. One real complaint of mine was the service -- it was one of those situations where multiple people were serving our table, and they didn't seem to communicate well with each other at all. We were left waiting for too long at times, and they messed up the delivery of certain items (eg we asked for the guacamole to come out ASAP, ahead of the apps, which the first waitress was fine with, but the second waitress didn't get the message, and it took AGES and came at the same time as the other apps.

        1. I actually love this place. But not everything is good. Stay away from beef and their tacos. Not impressive. But the "little bites" menu is great. Guacamole. I also remember an amazing cheesecake.
